Writing Stuff about Things: the word jockey archive

You don’t have to take my word for being a writer who writes about things for people: no longer will you have to scour the internet for things with my byline, as I assume everyone does all the time. No, now you can enjoy the quiet pleasure that is reading things I’ve written for various reasons collected in this one handy location, like some sort of Child’s Treasury of Andrew P Street Often Being  Snarky About Things. In order to give it extra gravitas, imagine it’s in a leatherbound volume rather than a series of clickable links.

I’ll update this in a haphazard manner whenever I remember something and go “hey, that had a nice line in it, should totally link it.”
