i'm back.

now that I'm working full time on my own thing over at dental departures, i thought i would do a little write up on it.

if you are in need of major dental care, say like you need all of your teeth replaced with implants, or several crowns, or something of that nature; this will cost you dearly here in the best country in the world. that's because our dentists love to make it rain over at the strip club.

our service over at dental departures let's a patient in need search for cheap dentists in mexico or if they are feeling up to more of an adventure, they can search for thailand dentists.

the quality of the dentists listed at dental departures are excellent. we are very selective and only want the best to represent our business.

would you travel overseas to save $10,000? we've had thousands do that so far. the business works! i'm next in line to get my teeth fixed. i'm hoping it is in thailand!

ninja, please.

tonight i went to a cat circus. yes, it was just as fun as it sounds. i'm looking at how to compress video and will post those next time. Otherwise, here's what's been going on in my life:


i don't think it has been mentioned, but i have a full time job (contract work) and have been incredibly busy with this and some other side projects as well. i've picked up a few new skills with my new job (caution, geek speak approaching):


with a new job comes new money. here's what i couldn't resist purchasing:

i should have caught up with current tech for the moment. i feel as if i don't need to purchase anything until next year... at the very least.


not much travel, other than a business trip to florida. in a few weeks, nat and i will be traveling to the bahaamas though. i should cover that in more detail once it happens.

Campari and pistachios.

I've been contemplating starting a food blog lately. Just recently I've set up data access on my phone and I've been thinking it would be really cool to update my site from my phone with photos of food I'm enjoying at the time.

I've become quite the foodie and I believe that I could write enough about food to dedicate a segment of my site strictly to food.

Above are a couple of my new favorites. Campari, an Italian aperitif, is intensely bitter, but has a wonderfully complex flavor that soothes my belly and excites my palate.

I just recently ordered a 5lb bag of pistachios from the latest woot-off over at and have been snacking on them feverishly.

self employed, actually.

apologies to those newcomers to see such foul expletives.

after a few months of searching for a reasonable job, ie. not mcdonalds, i eventually gave up and decided to revive jellyleaf, my web design business. i've had the domain and logo for a long time. i thought i would use it when i was employed previously, but it turned out to be too much work for too little money.

but here in chicago, it's a whole new ballgame. i started to do some work for a motorcycle shop here, motoworks and through the owner, johnny, i was able to score a ton of new work. connections are key. in san diego, the only connections i had were artists and musicians. they were the ones asking for a website for 50 bucks.

i still have so much to work on; it's quite overwhelming...but exciting! it doesn't feel like work as much as a desk job. i get to meet new people all over the city and work on different projects all the time.

i even turned down a few jobs to pursue this. of course they had to come asking for me to work as soon as jellyleaf takes off. but most of the offers have been low and the position doesn't seem interesting enough to convince me to join them.

well, off to work again. (it feels so strange to type that)

hunting for mushrooms in the backyard.

yawn! so, what did i miss?!

hibernation can really take a lot out of someone, so forgive me if i sound a little...odd.

i'm officially out of money, and this week i finally put my resume up on the interwebs and have been getting lots of feedback in only a few days. it's good to know that my profession is still in high demand. i started to think that if i'm to be employed for web development, my personal website should be kept up to date. hence, the update. here's what i've been keeping under wraps:

apologies to those who were checking the site and not finding updates. i promise to keep the site up to date with much more content in the future.
