40 For 40: Day 1

4

It's Corona Days on Planet Earth right now, and everyone with a birthday in the last two weeks or upcoming twelve months is lamenting how they won't get to celebrate their big bash. Normally, I wouldn't add my name to the list of complainers, but it's not every day that you turn 40 years old. Today's 4F4 is from my private celebration of making it to middle age. I remember...

30 for 30: Day 30

I don't have a good sense of how much Dom wanted to be a mom. All I can reference is how much effort she puts into Matador, and based on that, I can only assume she's wanted to be a mom for longer than she's been alive. Today's 3F3 is a photo of Matador's Halloween costume that Dom made from scratch. I remember...

It's only natural that when you become a parent, you start thinking about all the things you used to do before you became a parent. "We used to be cool," you say. You end up trying to reclaim some of those younger days, even if they weren't as awesome as you remember. Today's 3F3 is from the time we went back to ACL... and remembered why it had been so long since we went! I remember...

My hope is that my novels distract you from that anger for a little while. But do remember: just because I'm still talking about my little cyberpunk hacker book doesn't mean I don't care about what's happening in the world. I do care. I care to the point that I can taste the anger.

I was six months old when my parents first took me on a plane. Before you judge them too harshly, you should know they didn't have a choice. Matador was about to turn 2 when we took him on a plane for the first time, and you know what, we really didn't have a choice either. Today's 3F3 is from the time we went to a wedding. I remember...

You know, it's not every day you get married. Some people only do it once their entire life. Others, not even once. So it's with gratitude that I post today's 3F3, from the day Dom and I tied the knot. I remember...

You can’t go home again. That’s just true. Thomas Wolfe wrote a whole book about it. Or his editor did, anyway. Today’s 3F3 is from that time when I went home again, back to the place where my first novel was born. I remember…

Like many people, I spent most of my life afraid to get a tattoo. Between the permanence and the pain, you really have to be sure about what you're getting etched into your skin. Today's 3F3 is from the time I finally took the plunge and crossed over from "not tattooed" to awesome. I remember...

30 for 30: Day 24

From the moment I learned Dom was pregnant, the idea that I was going to be a father always seemed far away, just sometime in the future. Even as her stomach got bigger, even as we built a crib and picked out names, fatherhood never felt immediate. Today's 3F3 is from one of the first quiet moments I shared with my son. I remember...

Jetson will eat anything. It’s pretty disgusting sometimes when he’s outside. Inside, it’s not so much disgusting as it is annoying. You’ve really got to keep an eye on your food in this house. Today’s 3F3 is from the time Jetson stole my Chipotle. I remember…
