Hi, my name is Chris. I live and kvetch in Pittsburgh.

I spend most of my free time drinking coffee, fixing up my old house, and reading old books. I write meandering essays, half-inadvertently make people laugh, and take notice of the small things.

If I were a car, I’d probably be a yellow Volvo from the 1980s. Ideally, it would be in running condition.

Plainly.org is my personal weblog.
