Soooo Good Vegetarian Lasagna
I know I don't usually blog about food - but it is one of my favorite things in life! So I just had to share this quick and easy recipe for vegetarian lasagna because it tastes amazing. It started as some recipe I found from a web search, but I didn't have certain ingredients and I wanted to add others, so here's what I ended up with: In a large pot, sautee: 1 T olive oil 1 T dried thyme 1 T dried basil 2 cloves garlic, smashed 1 large chopped onion 1 10oz package of frozen spinach (add this last ......

Twitter Button to GeekswithBlogs/SubText Skin
I’ve always wished I could customize the skin on my blog at GeeksWithBlogs.Net. GeeksWithBlogs is built on SubText, and of course its just a skin, but since GWB is hosting my blog and I don’t have control over the skin files myself I am limited to what I can do with it. Well, today I finally did it, after some inspiration from John Resig (@jeresig) and his “Easy Retweet Button”. I added a “Tweet This!” button to the footer of each post. First, I modified the default styling of John’s retweet.js so ......

Non-Techie Guide to Free HD TV
I have been free of my monstrous cable tv bill for many months now, and I love it! Woooo! A while back I posted about how I want to get revenge on Cable companies by helping as many people as I can kill their cable service in favor of free HD tv over the air and over the Internet. You can read about that here. There are other “free TV” guides on the Internet – but they suck because they are too generic, too technical, or not technical enough. Hopefully this one doesn’t suck. Let me know if you have ......

Awesome Birthday
I had an awesome 32nd birthday yesterday. I had some family in from out of town and we had a great time. Then I headed to the pool with the gf to enjoy a few tasty beverages and an awesome afternoon in the sun. After that we headed out to a secret dinner destination, which turned out to be the famous Angus Barn restaurant in Raleigh, where I devoured a 24 ounce t-bone and we enjoyed some nice wine. Here’s the awesome camera that Lauren got me. I’d been talking about buying a new, smaller camera that ......

Dear RIAA (aka GrooveShark and Pandora Rock)
Dear RIAA, Please address your thank-you note to Pandora Radio. Pandora is where I was able to listen to a bunch of songs by Rehab, and where I then proceeded to purchase the Rehab album "Graffiti The World" (through Amazon MP3 of course, where I purchase all my DRM free music). Matt Miller brought it to my attention that Pandora may be on the way out because our the members of the Copyright Royalty Board have their eyes wide shut (just to be a little bit overly dramatic, there is no doubt in my ......

Could Congress Please Keep its Eye on the Ball?
Am I the only one who wonders why a congressional committee has time to discuss Roger Clemens (and other athletes') use of steroids, while there is a recession in the works, an aging baby boom generation, wars in the world (not just in the middle east), wide-spread poverty and hunger, global warming, renewable energy shortages, over-dependence on oil, and NCSU hasn't won a major ACC championship in 20 years? I mean seriously, can we please get our freaking priorities straight and let the damn baseball ......

Lori McKenna Live!
5 or 6 years ago, I was cleaning my apartment with the tv on in the background. I wasn't watching the tv, but a song started playing on the show that was on, and the song (not the show) immediately caught my attention. The singing voice was so striking. Extremely expressive and painful, I ended up watching the rest of the tv show just so I could see the credits and find out what angel had this extraordinary singing voice. It was Lori McKenna. I searched her out on the Internet and found out that ......

My Rat Terrier Anna Says "Hi!"
This is Anna, my 8 year old Rat Terrier. She doesn't howl very much, so I thought this was really funny. I think my favorite part is right near the end, after the alarm stops, she just freezes. She's so frozen that it almost looks like the video is over, but its not ......
