What to write about when I’m not writing about anything

Friday, August 29th, 2008

I don’t want this to be the typical apologetic post that myself and every other blogger in the world (did I just lump myself into a group? oy!) write after you can count on one hand how many times someone has updated their site over the course of a year. What I do want to [...]

If I wasn’t already the self-declared “King of the Suburbs”

Monday, October 8th, 2007

Back in the spring I was interviewed by the Daily Herald about driving a Prius and subscribing to TerraPass. They had a staff photographer come over and take the “infamous” picture of me in front of my car which has was the talk around town for a few minutes. A month or two back I [...]

Thinking About Gnomedex 2007

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

It’s been about three weeks now since Gnomedex 2007 and I still haven’t finished off a post that I had started back then. I’ve been thinking alot about this year’s event and wanted to share some of my thoughts after I digested things for a while. I don’t really have much to say about this [...]

Living Out Of Boxes One Week Later

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

Wow, do we have a lot of stuff… We technically “moved” 8 days ago and we’re still unpacking boxes and unloading a storage locker that has stuff in it like our coffee table, my stereo components and all of our booze (I know!)… More info on the new house/neighborhood, all of the personal projects I’ve [...]

No excuse for my lack of blogging (but here’s one anyways)

Thursday, July 12th, 2007

So as you may or may not know, I’ve been busy. I’m talking crazy busy. It’s always an excuse around here, but believe me I haven’t been spending much time “online”. Rather than continuing to apologize for things, let me tell you about some of the stuff that’s been going on and coming up. – [...]

I officially declare…

Monday, June 11th, 2007

this site “updated”…  :) Sorry about the quietness around here.  It’s been a hell of a couple of weeks for me and I’m just trying to get my head above water.  More soon, I promise!

Weekend In Michigan

Wednesday, May 16th, 2007

It’s been a crazy time around the Marusin household with our house on the market, our eyes on finding our next place to live and a few other “secrets” that haven’t been mentioned other than through a few cryptic Twitter posts by me… With that said, we got away for a quick weekend to Michigan [...]

Hi, I’m Mike and my (recent) hobbies include:

Friday, May 11th, 2007

- Declining LinkedIn Invites – Ignoring this website (though, I really don’t mean to) – Reliving my youth – Admitting embarrassing facts about myself (see the above line) :) – House hunting – Taking tons of pictures with my new camera – Consuming large amounts of carbonated water – Using lists such as this as [...]

I’m the posterboy for the Environment and Carbon Offsetting? :)

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

Yes, I drive a Prius and participate in TerraPass. No, I have not hugged a tree (at least in the last couple of weeks)… :) Today’s Daily Herald has an article that Bob McCoppin wrote about Chicago-area people who have participated in Carbon Offsetting programs. Through my online publicist (uh, that’s a joke by the [...]

To the Person Sending Me Threatening Comments

Monday, April 16th, 2007

For some reason, there’s someone out there who thinks that I’m a spammer. If you know me or read this site, you know that I run another site at turo.us which allows people to create smaller urls from large ones. As it turns out, someone (aka “The ACTUAL Spammer”) had created a handful of urls [...]
