A little about me for those who don't know me or those who have forgotten.
I am a dude. Meaning I am not a chick.
I like politics and will probably talk about them frequently. If you're looking for a Sean Hannity or Rachel Maddow type, you won't find that person here, though. I am more of a...ummm...well, I can't even think of who I am. I am a right leaning moderate. I support both gay rights and gun rights. I oppose both abortion and the death penalty. I believe in less government, but in enough government to help our citizens who need it...but, only to help them get back on their feet, not provide for them forever.
I am a Catholic...but, I am a very "American" Catholic. I get pissed when the Church implies that I am going to hell because I think gay people are A-Okay and loved by God just as much as me. Maybe even more so. I think priest should be allowed to marry and I think women should be allowed to be ordained.
I am a dad and I suspect this will take up a VERY large chuck of my blogging.
I am an HR guy in the technology sector. I have been a recruiter for 12 years and I have only recently moved into a Program Management position where I essentially work on programs to make recruiting easier for those doing it. It's basically the essence of middle management. But, the productive kind. :-)
I have a dog that is allergic to people. Like...really. Human dander. Gives him a nasty rash.
I also have a cat...but she's not very exciting.
I like beer. A lot. You know how some people are wine snobs or coffee snobs. I am a beer snob. I don't drink Bud or Coors or any domestic crap. And, I will act all self righteous toward those who do. That beer sucks, man.
Ummm...I like video games. I'm actually only about 12 years old.
And...I like to write. I actually really enjoy it. I have been told that I am not bad, too. I just need to overcome this 2 year stint of writers block I've been facing.
That's all for now. Enjoy your weekends!
So, there has been a lot of talk about mental health, lately. Which is GREAT! There is so much stigma around mental illness. And, I won'...
Desi has a ton of words, now. However, he doesn't really know how to end most of them. For example: Milk is Muh. Kitty is Key. I lo...
Okay...since we have a new baby and have to pay over $1000/month (no, I didn't accidentally add a zero) for daycare, we have no extra mo...
If you have a kid in daycare, you know what I'm talking about, here. Daycare is NOT cheap. It's no wonder some women stop working al...
