Everything I Feel Like Chronicling Not in or Related to Connecticut
I’ve resisted putting this together in some cohesive way for years. Many years. But as I’ve settled on the major sections of this website, I realized I have a few outlying subjects that simply never fit in elsewhere. Granted, many of these are fairly thin on content, but now that I’ve created a place for this stuff, perhaps I’ll add more to it. Just be aware that this is the lowest priority section on the entire site.
Non-CT Travel, Vacations & Tallies
Travel & Vacations I know full-well that whatever I put into this section is basically for me and maybe my wife and maybe my son Calvin. But hey, if you want to be whisked away with me and my family, let’s go take a trip somewhere.
World Soccer Stadium Tour: If the above is just for me, my wife, and Calvin, then this is even “worse,” as it’s just for me and Calvin. While other people try to visit baseball parks, we visit soccer grounds. Another lifelong – I hope – pursuit. Can we kick it? Yes we can, here.
Family US State Counts:, US State counters are totally normal, so here are the state counts for my family.
Family US County Counts: US County counters are insane, so I’ve joined them. Here are the county counts for my family.
Family Country Counts: I’m not going to bother with this one until Calvin sees this and whines about its exclusion and wants you to know that he went to the Bahamas once.
Family US National Park Counts: US National Park counters are cool, so here are ours.
Non-CT Hiking and Peakbagging
Just throwing an innocent looking link here. If you click it, you be whisked away to the wonderful world of state highpointing and northeast peakbagging lists! It’s honestly one of my favorite things I’ve done in my life and I love it, whether you understand it or not.
And since I have traveling tallies above, here are our peakbagging tallies too.
Modern Library Top 100 Novels of the 20th Century
Wow, this is random. But where else should I put this stuff? Again, you and I (and I’m talking to myself) know this is pretty much just for me. I’m cool with that.
Hoang and I are reading The Modern Library Top 100 Books of the 20th Century, and I think that’s impressive. It would be equally impressive if you’re interested in that, right here.
And since we have so many tallies above, here are our tallies of what we’ve read and when.
Oscar Movies Project
In a certain sense, you’ve reached the end of CTMQ. In the list of “CTMQ Relevance and Importance,” this is the bottom. It has nothing at all to do with the site, I won’t be writing about any of it, and I don’t now anything about the subject matter.
I present to you the 2020-20?? Pandemic Oscar Movie List! Wherein my wife and I watch and rank every single ding dang movie nominated for a Best Picture Oscar… ever.
Okay. That’s it. That’s enough.
