Birthday WrapUp

Monday, October 31st, 2005

It’s nice when your birthday falls on a weekend. Mine was yesterday, but I started doing stuff for it on Friday. Friday my parents came down and took me to lunch at Girasole. Saturday, BW and I got up and went for bagels (mmm, pumpkin cream cheese!) and coffees, then just had a nice day […]

You R What U Eat

Friday, October 28th, 2005

I taste like Peanut Butter. I am one of the most blendable flavours; I go with sweet, I go with sour, I go with bland, I go with anything. I am practical and good company, but have something of a tendency to hang around when I’m not wanted, unaware that my presence is not welcome. […]

Is He Over Yet?

Thursday, October 27th, 2005

Yeah, I’m talking about Mr. “Still the Prettiest” himself, Orlando Bloom. Consider this an open letter to the film industry. Lets look at the facts, gentlemen. “Kingdom of Heaven.” Orlando in a leading role. Supposed to have kicked off the summer blockbuster season, instead made only $19mil it’s opening weekend and got resoundingly mediocre reviews, […]

Meet My New Friend

Wednesday, October 26th, 2005

Found this little treasure stuck out in a seasonal endcap at my local grocery monopoly. It’s faux-butter. It’s pumpkiny. It’s butter that tastes like pumpkin. It’s pumpkin that is buttery. It’s some good shit, man. So far I’ve only tried it on toast, crackers, and have put a little dab in my oatmeal. Most excellent […]

Hot Diggity!

It is snowing here this morning! In October!! What a nice early birthday present.

That Was Annoying

Monday, October 24th, 2005

Due to an IP change, spent the better part of the day unable to view this website, even though everyone else could. Anyway, had a very nice weekend. Saturday was all cold and damp and dark and Scottish, so I was loving it. We went out foodie shopping in the morning. Then no better place […]

Project E

Friday, October 21st, 2005

This is a little project that I finished up recently, and Loupy wanted to see pics, so… Basically I took an old ugly cd tower, and through the magic of decoupage, transformed it into an E Tower! Too bad I don’t have any “before” pics of the tower. Just imagine one of those ugly cd […]

The Children of the Night, What Sweet Music They Make

“Karloff doesn’t deserve to smell my shit! That limey cocksucker can rot in hell, for all I care!!! –Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood Happy Bela’s Birthday to one and all! Maybe this year, for something different, try watching Tim Burton’s Ed Wood. True, it doesn’t have Bela IN it, as such, but the whole movie […]

Now That’s Good Eatin’!

Wednesday, October 19th, 2005

Today I’m introducing a new feature/category to this blog called Now That’s Good Eatin’. It’s gonna replace the ‘Recipes’ category. I see it as a catch-all place for not only recipes, but food recommendations, maybe restaurant reviews, food rants, and anything else pertaining to food. Now, let’s kick it off with this little guy: May […]

Fetch Me a Shrubbery!!

Tuesday, October 18th, 2005

Below are the before and after pics of our wall and backyard. I wish I had some better ‘befores’ to show just how nasty it was. The first two pics were taken when the guys were ripping down the old wall. It gives some idea of the former ugliness of the backyard, and the bad […]

No Comment

Monday, October 17th, 2005

I see that some people haven’t been able to post comments to my blog. And here I thought y’all had finally gotten sick of it. Anyway, some people’s comments work, and some don’t, so if you try to send me a comment and it doesn’t get through, please email me at With the address […]

Is This Thing On?

Monday, October 17th, 2005

*knock, knock* *loud feedback noises* Hello? Dunno if anyone’s still out there, but if you are, let me get you all caught up on stuff. There’s assorted news, good and bad. Bad, obviously, is that we postponed our UK trip due to scary weather on the weekend we were due to leave. Also bad was […]

You know which wines go best with which foods, andyou can make New York City’s finest sommalier feel like a kid at a keg party. You wanna take that Emeril guy and beat him with a stick, but really – you’ve got more class than that. What people love: You know the best restaurants and […]

Blame Tammy

Monday, October 10th, 2005

Here I am posting this live from….my house. LOL! No, we did not make it to the UK as scheduled. Anybody who lives on the east coast knows that it got SLAMMED with rain and winds all weekend long. Philthadelphia was getting one inch of rain per hour at some points…and we had to fly […]

UK Bound ?

Friday, October 7th, 2005

First off, thanks to the various people who called and/or emailed to express their concern after yesterday’s post. I appreciate that nobody (except for myself) will think I’m a big loser if I cop out on this. It’s a relief to know that. But, I really don’t want to let fear dictate my life. So, […]

Confessions of a Fuck-Up

Thursday, October 6th, 2005

I am so sick of worrying about this upcoming trip, I can’t even begin to tell you. I’m sick of getting 3 hours of sleep a night, I’m sick of walking around with a knot in my guts. And I don’t know what to do about it. I’m too much of a coward to go […]

Random Potshot

Was Google-searching for another image entirely, but found this little gem of goodness from our friends in Great Britain:

Feel the Power of the Dark Side!

Tuesday, October 4th, 2005

This is my Friday story. In short, after Loup’s visit BW started thinking more seriously about getting ink. We mulled some ideas over, and it came down to either Star Wars or the BSA cycles logo. I went off and Photoshopped up some concepts, and here’s the result: I kinda thought that the Imperial Logo […]

Violent Weekend

Monday, October 3rd, 2005

Went to see “A History of Violence” with Cheri and Jimmy this weekend. Excellent, excellent movie. Let’s hear it for David Cronenberg! “Violence” is a powerful and engrossing story, and also has awesome acting from Viggo, Ed “He’s Good in Anything” Harris, William Hurt, and Maria Bello. Even the unknown kid who played the teen […]
