Simple Lego desktop cable organizer

You know how you like to run your charging cables behind the desk to keep them out of the way, but they always fall down the back whenever you unplug your phone or laptop? Here’s a little thing I whipped up using basic Lego parts to help keep my cords where I need them.

The design is super simple. I just made sure the cables wouldn’t move while in place inside the organizer. This one was built for two Apple cables, but you can modify it to suit any number or size you’ll be using. You can even create a minifig scene on the top!

The Snoopy Bunker at Highland National Golf Course

There’s a golf course here in St. Paul, Minnesota, that has a bunker shaped like Snoopy to honor Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip and cartoon and a native of St. Paul.

I happened upon the course on one of my recent walks, so I tried to find that bunker. It was easy to spot, but taking photos from the ground really isn’t the best way to see Snoopy.

Thankfully, Golf Digest has a better view. And Google Maps even shows Snoopy’s bunker when you take a look at the course:

You know what? I could have climbed a tree to get a better shot, but I was too afraid of getting yelled at by some pasty dude wearing spiky shoes.

Lion wrecked me

The movie. I cried more tonight than during any other movie I can remember, ever. I had to focus hard at the end so I wouldn’t break down into massive heaving sobs.

Oh, Google

I thought we were past the time in history where we had to email passwords and usernames back and forth and log in to each other’s accounts to privately share things. Guess not, according to Google Photos.

I’m getting back on the caffeine

And boy can I feel it!

Ordering decaf everywhere has been annoying lately. Sometimes restaurants don’t serve it. Sometimes I have to wait for a new pot. Sometimes it’s cold. Sometimes shops have to substitute a sort of similar drink instead of the one I want.

I’ll start with a cup (literal; 8 ounces) of coffee a day and see whether or not my heart explodes. I’m guessing what’ll actually happen is my head will spin off my neck, or I won’t sleep for weeks at a time.

I’m looking for my people. I didn’t think it would take so long to find them.

My 2015 in a series of captured moments

On Making New Friends

2015 New Year’s Blessing

A journey is a series of gambles, and after a while you get to be pretty good at it. . . .

This is why I go out of my way to meet my online friends in person

Looking at a new home

In case you missed the recent memo . . .

Getting Around Without A Car

What happiness are you missing out on in your life and work?

This one’s just a bit too long for a tweet

Everything I need fits in my backpack

Take it

I promise I’ll get my words back soon

I feel like I’ll pull everyone in the city to me just by going outside

And last year and the year before and all the years going back forever
