is disturbed by the idea of student loans as a form of academic sharecropping. A legacy of debt that will pass to my sons & my son's sons.

Monday, August 15, 2011

its always hard to leave my son in the morning on the days when he cries for me.

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Thursday, August 04, 2011

Saturday, July 30, 2011

Fingers crossed, I may have gotten my teaching assignment for this fall!

found out this morning that without a wife and kid I can still get up and out the house to work in 15 minutes.

Saturday, July 23, 2011

I am old enough to give up any notion that, despite being without wife or child, I am not going anywhere tonight

my little bro and I just lost a water balloon toss with style!

Monday, July 18, 2011

Who has two thumbs and somehow manage to get Pleurisy? this guy! at least it wasn't a pulmonary embolism...

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

OK why are people still setting off fireworks at 1am? don't you people have to work tomorrow?

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Saw Transformers with my little bro today, I did not like it. Also I was not ready to see a full length feature with a restless 10 year old.

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Is wishing my beautiful, intelligent, & capable wife Nicole a wonderful birthday. You are marvelous, & I appreciate all you are.
Had such a good time last night I passed out after everyone left. Thanks to all for showing my wife a good time!

This baby is refusing top let daddy stay up and work on his dissertation...

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

it is only kinda sad how quickly and completely my wife and I merc'd that Naked Pizza.

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there. It is a tough job, but rewarding & marvelous, & I am honored to be among your ranks.

Thursday, June 16, 2011

Within the next 24 hours there will a flurry of pictures, reviews & stuff coming our of queue. I was a little backed up from May.

Saturday, June 11, 2011

OK, so I calculated it, & baring driving to work and small errands I was in a car for 32 hours and drove over 1832 miles since last Thursday

Friday, June 10, 2011

And now I am driving back to Columbus...
Lost my phone at graduation, pretty inconvenient problem to have. Now I have to report it & change all my passwords and other such nonsense.

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

just discovered that the baby knows how to crawl under the Futon, and the baby gate if its too high, we are in new territory now.

Monday, May 23, 2011

I apologize to anyone who was spammed by my AOL account last night. Don't click any strange links in an email from

Just confirmed my suspicions that my sleep apnea could have deleterious effects on cognitive executive functioning... #whycantItrustmybrain?

Sunday, May 08, 2011

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers out there, including my mother who is indispensable, & my lovely & capable wife.

looked up from grading midterms & trying to get Excel to display letter grades, realized it was 2am, & thought: "what am I doing to myself?"

Saturday, April 30, 2011

RAH's first birthday went off without a hitch. Of course we were over-prepared but it was a wonderful time with some wonderful people.
Today we celebrate the truly best thing that has ever happened to me, the birth of my son, the handsome and indomitable, Ritchie Hall III.

"What are you doing? are you reading my books? Can you stop learning for one second!" Stephen Colbert yelling at James Franco

Saturday, April 02, 2011

just ate at Aunt Flora's, it was amazing food and fantabulous cobbler. Review to come: #thebreakfastmenu

Friday, April 01, 2011

just rocked an interview, because that is how I do.

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Maybe I am the type of fish that needs to be swimming upstream?

Sunday, March 27, 2011

the menu is 50 pages, the last 2 are the most important, thats where we put the cheesecake. #cheesecakefactoryslogans
me: we will cook whatever you want, just dont leave before you get some cheesecake. #cheesecakefactoryslogans
my wife: that's what you came for, the cheesecake! #cheesecakefactoryslogans
Also the cheesecake factory menu is a monstrosity. can this place decide what it wants to be?
also, why is cheesecake factory ALWAYS so packed. the food is really not that good, and you can get the cheesecake to go.
the breakfast blog faces its first challenge, getting seating at cheesecake factory.

Saturday, March 12, 2011

Had a great day hanging out with the Slaughter brood. My house was full of kids, but it was a good time.

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

The older lady asks me if I want a receipt: I reply "I'm good," she hands me the receipt. #alwaysremembertocodeswitch

Sunday, March 06, 2011

made it to Take the Cake for breakfast. this place is loud, and busy. but i hear good things about their brunch.

Saturday, March 05, 2011

over 2 hours later & no Chrissette Michelle. bout ready to turn in. too old to be waiting till midnight for a performance
chilling, waiting on a Chrissette Michelle concert at a club, yawning already. hope we can make a night out.

Thursday, March 03, 2011

talking with kids about food for the last half hour has made me hungry for 3 diff resteraunts.

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

Parallel Parking: LIKE A BOSS! (in my Lonley Island voice)
I'm a mess this morning: halfway to get the baby I glance back and realize I forgot his car seat.
spent 20 mins looking for my phone, come to find it dead in my car. say to myself: thats a real Nicole move Ritch.

Monday, February 28, 2011

This baby refuses to go to sleep, which sucks for a lot of reasons, mostly because I will not be able to get any work done.

Thursday, February 24, 2011

there are days, like today, when i am super productive, (despite a late start) and i impress even myself.

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

People who say you can find "anything" on the internet must not do the narrow searches I do. My interests are too peculiar for google.

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Internet News I don't want to be true: Comic Book Resources is reporting the death of Legendary Comic Book Creator Dwayne Mcduffie.

Monday, February 21, 2011

wants to hit up a half price books after the gym today. also, i want to learn how to really play chess.

Monday, February 14, 2011

also, i made it to the gym today. my body will hate me tomorrow, but it may thank me in 30 years.
I forget how much I like riding a bike. I am going to do that more this year.

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Also on the record for 2011, I am going to write, and finish at least one of these crime novels sitting in my brain.
I am saying this out loud because I want someone to hear it and hold me to it: I am going to finish my dissertation this year.

Saturday, February 12, 2011

dont leave the house with only rayovac batteries in your camera, they will fail on you within an hour.
a good soup can make me feel so nostalgic.

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I worked in Tower Place in 1996, I hadnt been there in 10 years, ghost town isnt an accurate word for what it has become.
Walking through Tower Place Mall was like walking through a crypt. The architecture is lovely, but its dead inside. There were 3 stores.
I forgot my city had a "mall" downtown. I say "mall" parenthetically because that place is pathetic.
Ping is being a jerk and not uploading my statuses.

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

"It's Adventure time with Ritch and Ritch!" all jealous mommies please leave the room.

Sunday, February 06, 2011

despite no interest in the game, & not participating in any game related activities, i will be making chili in honor of the super bowl.

Friday, February 04, 2011

I joined a gym today.

Thursday, February 03, 2011

you totally do not understand how much I love the show "Community" its like someone opened up my brain and started filming.
forgetting your power chord pretty much negates all the convenience of a netbook. #21stcenturyfirstwolrdproblems

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

Groundhog Day is my second favorite movie, after Back To the Future. I could watch it anytime its on.

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Kind of wish I could get a snow day tomorrow...

Monday, January 31, 2011

devoured a crime book this weekend. I forget how much reading fiction makes me want to write.

Sunday, January 30, 2011

boarding our last plane, almost home after a fun and eventful weekend. NO was a blast but now it is back to work.
and it akes a lot to make me hate jazz...
so yeah, we will be writing a bad review of Snug Harbor as well. that hostess can go jump in a lake.

Saturday, January 29, 2011

and then we walk right into Clarke Peters aka Lester the man Freeman from the Wire! awesomesauce!
the cab driver was awesome. he encouraged us to eat at Coops, but we saw a roach there so we moved on
made it to the original Cafe Du Monde. it is packed but fun.
bringing the wife to the french market may have been a mistake, she sees too many purses she likes.

Friday, January 28, 2011

napped too long, now want to hit the french qtr and see the sites on a New Orleans night.
ping is being stupid and not pushing out my updates...
hit up Mother's for lunch, now after strolling the River Walk I'm whiping the dusty sugar of Beingnets from my pants and ready for a nap.
landed in New Orleans, overall it was a pretty uneventful flight, which is usually better than the alternative.

Thursday, January 27, 2011

made it to Huston, but cant hear a thing with all the sinus pressure in my head. forgot my sinuses hate me this time of year.
trying to be proactive about a problem at work may torpedo my plans to duck out early today. #Iammyownworstenemy
sleepiness hit me like a mack truck just now. i am going to have to really proofread these notes.

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

figured out if i talk slower and lean on my notes more i can actually end class on time and not early.
Is not operating at peak efficiency today. I need my brain to get it in gear.

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Also, cue the talking heads as we wait for the Repubs. #SOTU
Alright black people, you can now turn to your DVR of The Game after performing the minimal civic duty for watching the SOTU
Also, I completely forgot that Al Franken was a Congressman, that is even more hilarious #SOTU
The cutaways on the SOTU are hilarious. also, please with the standing and clapping already... #SOTU

Thursday, January 20, 2011

braving the snow to head home, its worse out than it looked from my office window.

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Frustration: Finding the toy you paid $15 bucks for .99 cents at the thrift store. No more new baby toys.

Sunday, January 02, 2011

Watching the worst movie with the Huddlestons, Great times!
