  • Nokia 3310

    Lent begins next week and I think I’m going to give up using my iPhone as a phone in favor of this. My iPhone will probably still be around to use as a camera and other things that work in airplane mode, but wouldn’t be used on my cellular network.

  • Lent 2016

    I should have titled this I Give Up. Every year I give up something for Lent. In the past it’s been red meat (and I really like my burgers and a steak), alcohol (and you know my love of bourbon), and a variety of other things. The hard part isn’t the day to day avoidance […]

  • 40+ Days & Nights

    Lent started today, beginning a period of 40-something days in which a noticeable item is removed or added to my life. This year my 40-something days will be without alcohol.

  • Lent 2014

    Lent is here. This year I’ve giving up social networks including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and Fierce Board. There are some things that automatically post to these sites that will continue, but there won’t be any manual use of these sites.

You’ll still get a tweet and Facebook status update when I publish something on andrejcarter.com because those are done automatically, but that should be all until Easter. If you need to get in touch with my try calling, texting, […]

  • Fat Tuesday

    I got to attend the Kentucky versus Mississippi State basketball game in Starkville on Fat Tuesday. Miguel Sanchez hooked us up and we got a chance to briefly hang out with the squad before the game. The game itself was a mess. It was close from beginning to end, but not a great display of […]

  • Lent & Luke’s Back

    Lent started a few days ago and I decided I would give up alcohol. I did it a few years ago and it wasn’t too bad. The most amusing reactions come from friends that are used to ordering a round when we go out to eat, but now I have to remind them I’m sitting […]

  • Mardi Gras

    Happy Mardi Gras. Today is Super Tuesday, a day in which a lot of states have their political Primaries and a lot of candidates realize if they have an actual chance at becoming the President. Today many in New York are still attempting to recover from the Giants’ SuperBowl victory and tomorrow many in New […]
