The End is Nigh

Monday, February 28th, 2005

Well, this is our last night at Loup’s house. Loup and I are sitting around netsurfing waiting for LK and BW to get home with pizzas. It’s been a really fun trip. We’ve shopped, gone to an Air/Space museum, visited the famouse Mirabella’s restaurant, watched the Oscars this morning (Tivo-ing is the ONLY way to […]

Cake and Guinness For All!

Sunday, February 27th, 2005

Happy Birthday to Donal!! Awww. I was sad that GFL got cancelled, and life without a weekly Donal fix has been hard. But I think it’ll all work out for the best. Since the cancellation, D has premiered “Tennis Anyone?” at the US Comedy Film Fest, been cast in “Ghost Rider”, has a part in […]

Virginia Is For Suckas

Saturday, February 26th, 2005

I always knew that VA traffic was bad, but gawdDAYUM, I didn’t know it was this bad. Sure, DC area, you expect that. But it was bad even after that between DC and Richmond. We actually sat and didn’t move at times!! Around Richmond, it sucked ass. Between Richmond and Portsmouth, it was unpleasant. And […]

We’re off to See the Loupy!

Friday, February 25th, 2005

After many, many months of back-and-forth promises to visit, guilt finally got the better of us and tomorrow morning we’ll set off on the long drive to visit LOUP, LK, Korky, Max, and their new house! I’m looking forward to having a fun, relaxing time chatting, dining, shopping, and of course watching various hotties on […]

Shucks. I wanted to be ‘manuscript illumination’

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2005

You are ‘programming in QBASIC’. This programming language (of which the acronym stands for ‘Quick Beginners’ All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code’), which is so primitive that it cannot easily be used for any purposeinvolving the Internet nor even sound, wascurrent more than a decade ago. You are independent, in a good way. When something which you […]

Birthday Purrs!

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2005

Gulliver Flynn is 8 today! Happy birthday, lil fuzzy butt.

Hola? Quien es?

Monday, February 21st, 2005

Had a nice peaceful weekend. Friday night, we went out to see The Merchant of Venice. (Jeremy Irons…I’m obligated to go.) I haven’t read the original, tho now I want to, so I didn’t have anything to compare it with. It wasn’t bad, but it really wasn’t good either. Nothing to do with the production; […]

Whistlin’ a Birthday Tune

Sunday, February 20th, 2005

Yeah, it is my homie Whistler’s (aka Dave, aka ‘Jamaica Dave’) birthday today!! It’s that special day when we all gather ’round the cd player and sing along with AL:

Mauled

Friday, February 18th, 2005

I had to run to the mall today for something. My nearby mall is badly designed, in that the area where you stand to wait for busses is right by the sproggen “play area.” (Which should, for accuracy’s sake be renamed the sproggen ‘run and scream like they’re being gutted by a meat hook’ area.) […]

The food of love

Thursday, February 17th, 2005

My Uncle Jimmy (aka ‘Chutta’) has been gone for some time now, and I’ll admit, I’m not one to sit around dwelling on deceased family much…but today his absence really struck me. Why? Because I got a craving for fried eggplant. Jimmy made quite possibly the tastiest eggplant in the world. And then it hit […]

Here’s to Hugh!

Wednesday, February 16th, 2005

I’ll come out of the closet: I am a Leave it to Beaver fan. I used to watch it on TVLand every day back when I had cable. People remember it as smarmy, and it was, but at times it was genuinely funny. But I watched it because it was like a moving time-capsule of […]

It’s No Fun Until Somebody Loses an Eye

Tuesday, February 15th, 2005

Fencing class again last night. This time we had to put on the mask, and padded jacket, and gloves, which felt really goofy. It seems silly to wear all that equipment just to protect yourself from a teeny pointed stick that couldn’t hurt anyone unless you scored a direct hit to the eye. I mean, […]

Monday Whinge

Monday, February 14th, 2005

BW was fiddling around with our taxes yesterday, and once again found that we are getting a piddly little amount back. All that stuff you hear from investment counsellors about how buying a home will save you money on taxes…it’s a LIE! It’s such a bummer because there is an airfare sale from Pgh to […]

Diabetes for the Eyes

Friday, February 11th, 2005

…from all this new Eye Candy I’ve got to start your weekends on a happy note! (That, plus Loup is away and so without her Humpday Hottie this week, I thought I’d help pick up the slack.) To start, I’ve made a whole new folder in my Hotties Gallery just to hold Diego’s Zegna ads. […]

Spam, spam, spam, spam!

Thursday, February 10th, 2005

I just deleted something like 120 blog spams (at least WordPress holds them all for deletion and they never show up on the blog), and they were all for friggin’ POKER! Come on! What happened to porn? What happened to viagra?? Are people really more interested in poker these days than porn? What a sad […]

Dodge, Parry, Spin…Thrust?!

Tuesday, February 8th, 2005

Me and Tim the Enchanter now have two weeks of fencing class under our belts, and I think I can safely say that We Suck! For as wussy as it is, fencing is actually hard. The first week we did footwork drills, which was very physically tiring, but I thought it was fun. Last night, […]

Hoo-whee, another survey!

Monday, February 7th, 2005

Yeah, another one of these. My goal is that if I do just a few more, y’all will know me so well, you’ll be able to answer them FOR me! 1. What time did you get up this morning? 6:00am 2. Diamonds or pearls? black opals 3. What was the last film you saw at […]

It’s About Freakin’ Time!!

Sunday, February 6th, 2005

Miami Vice is out on DVD!! Praise the lawd, and pass the Ray-Bans! *drives off listening to Phil Collins*

Guys Named D.L. Day

Friday, February 4th, 2005

Not that anybody cares, but wtf, it’s Friday and I feel like sharing some news about some cuties. Here we are one week after the last episode of GFL, and there is a glimmer of good Donal Logue news on the horizion. Check out this piece of info. FX is talking w/my babydoll about a […]

I Want My CrackTV!

Thursday, February 3rd, 2005

No, this is not a Crack Monkey story. Back in the day, every Friday night at 9:00, right after Dukes of Hazzard, I would watch Dallas. In those days, it was almost like you didn’t have a choice. You watched Dallas. EVERYBODY watched Dallas. I don’t even remember if any of the other networks bothered […]
