    Stuff in My Drawers Day  I drew this picture in April 1986 at the age of 6.     I was fresh from a trip to the Petersburg Battlefield, south of Richmond and the site of the longest battle in the Civil War. Having traveled to every battlefield in Virginia by the time I could do simple mathematics, I was oozing Civil War knowledge like a first grade know-it-all. Pictured here, is the use of sappers during trench warfare between the North and South. This strategy failed when the sappers dug too deep below their intended exit point and completely missed it. The tunnels then collapsed and everyone cried. Screw ups!   I'm not actually sure if Robert Lee himself was a sapper, but if he was a good leader, he would have taken a turn a...

    Stuff In My Drawers Day  I drew this picture thirty years ago at the age of 7.     Excited about a planned trip to San Diego to visit relatives and go to Disneyland but not really knowing what California was actually like, I created this true-to-life representation of the life that Mike and Annie live on a daily basis. Also, there is only one beach stretching the entire length of the coast, called CALIFORNIA BEACH, and all of the houses have push bars on their doors like my elementary school did.

    The Orge Family   A children's book written in fourth grade language arts class           Once upon a time, long, long ago, King Orge and his queen had sextuplets.   Their names were: Worge, George, Horge, Morge, Corge, and Dwaborge.     They were  always  clumsy.   Dwaborge would pull the cat's tail while...     ...George put a match in the  gas  stove.   "We must do something about these kids!" the cook exclaimed.     They  never  got the problem solved.   By the time they were all 30...     ...they became fighters and warriors.   They ...

    Stuff In My Drawers Day  Here's a cartoon I drew 24 years ago as a high school freshman. It depicts the assembly line process used to make a doofus. If you knew any doofuses growing up, they probably came from this machine.

    Flag Day  Happy Flag Day!   As an eighth grader in 1992, I drew this design for my French teacher, Madame Gibbs, who needed something to put on the cover of the "World Potluck Dinner" program. This event was held at the school every year and consisted of different minorities bringing the most stereotypical food of their culture to share.     Of course, the programs were copied using an old-fashioned ditto machine, so the resultant program featured one and a half shades of blue, bleeding splotches, and less contrast than the darkly lit scenes in an episode of Game of Thrones.

    Stuff in My Drawers Day  A common elementary school assignment is to assign an adjective or noun that best describes you to each letter in your name. I did this one in September 1987 as a fresh-faced fourth grader.     I am definitely a Brother. So far so good.   I am Reliable, and you can tell that because I play golf.   I'm pretty sure that Improsable is not a real word, but it sounds like it means I am unswayed by impressive prose, so I'll keep it.   I am Agreeable, as evinced by my willingness to drive you across a river.   Finally, I am Neat, both in the 80s "cool" way and the traditional "vacuums the house weekly" way. The Spanish moss hanging off the letters foreshadows my event...

    Overwatch Day  I'm busy working on proposals today, so here are some short movies of my Overwatch Plays of the Game in lieu of a real update.                  Also, here's  a video  on the history of Blizzard's failed game,  Titan  and how it morphed into  Overwatch , which should be interesting to anyone who's played any Blizzard games over the years.

    Stuff in My Drawers Day  Sixteen years ago today was the Spring Concert of the VT Symphony Band, the second-tier band of musicians who liked playing music but didn't necessarily care enough to compete for FIRST CHAIR or practice more than an hour a day (if that).     This set list was completely unmemorable other than the fact that none of the woodwinds could play any of the runs in the Tschaikowsky, so that piece was fewer HIGHS and more lows.     This was in my fourth year at Tech, so Anna was still majoring in keeping fish alive, and I was still majoring in everything.

    Stuff in My Drawers Day  I took these pictures 25 years ago, in January 1991, as a requirement for the Photography merit badge. This was long before digital cameras and color printers, and the negatives were developed in our basement darkroom.     The badge required a set of black and white photographs that demonstrated good and poor lighting, with no penalty points docked if your family was less than enthused to participate.     This merit badge really drove home the importance of lighting, as you can see. On the left, my dad just looks my dad, but put him in the shadow of a menacing deciduous tree and he could be the "mysterious stranger hanging around the lake when all of those co-eds disappeared last summer". ...

    Memory Day: Snapshots    This picture was taken 6 years ago in March 2010. We were taking advantage of ridiculously cheap round-trip tickets to Puerto Rico by spending a week on the island. The photo was taken somewhere in the rainforest on El Yunque and we spent a few days in a hippie's eco-lodge with only 1 option for dinners and no beer other than the four bottles bequeathed to us by another departing couple from DC. On the way to this lodge, we were briefly lost in a seedy rural town called Florida, where all of the street signs were mysteriously missing and all of the townsfolk gave us the evil eye.   I spent much of the down time on this trip reading about XML and coding in my head, and released the very first release of DDMSence ...

    Stufff in My Drawers Day  This is an excerpt of Senior Superlatives from my high school newspaper.     In 1996, no one thought it peculiar that the blacks would be athletes and the whites would succeed. Also, the lone Asian winner was voted in for "Best Hair".

    Stuff in My Drawers Day    I drew this picture in January 1987 as a third grader in Ms. Paul's art class. Judging from the limited color palette, there was either a paucity of crayons left in the bin, or I was emulating the EGA graphics cards of the era. I'm also not sure why there's a giant dwarf sun on the dying horizon, or a secondary one higher up in the sky.

    Stuff in My Drawers Day    I sketched this doodle of my dad watching TV at the age of 9, on November 12, 1988. The couch was one of the uglier, more uncomfortable iterations in a long succession of couches stretching back to the beginning of time. In the background near the stairs, you can see the laundry my mom had just finished folding.

    Memory Day: Snapshots    This picture of my sister and I was taken in the fall of 1982. My sister, in her finest Joe Theismann apparel, has a bandage on her neck from the repair of a bronchial cleft cyst (according to my dad, the historian). The picture isn't out of focus -- that's how 1982 really looked!

    Memory Day: Snapshots  This picture was taken six years ago today, on  October 14, 2009 .     As the "crazy thing we wouldn't normally do" during our Kauai honeymoon, we went on a Jack Harter Helicopter Tour, which cost a few hundred dollars and lasted about an hour. The weather was wonderful on the island, but we were bundled up here because of the blustery conditions in an open-air helicopter. The Tour was definitely a high point, and the guide gave us a well-polished monologue while lingering over the various sites for long enough to take great pictures.   Afterwards, we had dinner at a Japanese sushi restaurant and tried crazy sushis, including a "fried hand-roll" which turned out to be like a waffle cone full...
