This series has taken much longer to write about than I had previously imagined. Apparently sitting down and writing every day isn't something that's easy to do; so much Netflix, hangouts, video games, and then also work. In any case, it's really convenient that my phone will store the date, time and location of any... Continue Reading →

Unlike every other place I've been, in Wisconsin most bartenders play dice with their customers. Suddenly from across the room, you can hear a cup filled with dice being shaken and slammed down on the bar to see what shows. I've rolled once before, and that was when I first moved here.
