The Little Foxes: Conclusion.

Monday, August 30th, 2010

Went in on Saturday night for the snowy fox tattoo.  Things went pretty smoothly, although the Emla creme only worked for the first 40 minutes or so…which was pretty much the tail.  I can’t complain though, because the tail was pretty big.    Otherwise…whoa…painful place to get a tat!  But also ticklish at the same […]

I Was A Human Prop: Bonus Features

I don’t know why I didn’t see this last year when it happened, but here is a nice, long (9 minutes) video of Rusty talking about PGH. This was eventually hacked down into a 2-minute piece on WTAE, but this is much nicer. First few minutes are all sports blather, you can skip that…;) Sorry […]

For people who are not on Facebook, I’ve assembled some more pictures of lil’ orphan Ed, along with the venerable Gandalf. Mosey on over and take a look.

The Little Foxes

It’s been nagging at me for a few months that I want to get a fox-themed tattoo.  I know what you’re thinking, and no, the motivation is not entirely Shaun White-related. NO! *slaps fingers* No…it’s not…I don’t know how that picture got posted!  Bad brain!  Um…anyway, I’d say it was Shaun-inspired, but not entirely motivated.  […]

My 15 minutes are almost here

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Remember when I was an extra on a Russell Crowe movie for a day last year? I had the distinction of making RC smile, then later on I got to stand three feet from His Presence? Ahhh, good times! Anyway the film (The Next Three Days) is coming this fall and there is now a […]

Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards…

…unless it is their birthday. Happy 16th, Gandalf! It’s been a rough year for you, but you toughed it out.  We wish you nothing but the awesomeness you deserve for the year to come! Love, your lackeys… Mom, Dad, and Ed.

Or in today’s case, not so much. We are in Washington today so PJ can attend a USENIX conference.  Ordinarily, I’d be hopping on the Metro about now, headed down to sashay around Georgetown and pretend that I can afford to shop at Barneys and Dean&Deluca.  But the weather here is deadly.  It was 96 […]

…while another opens…

People on Facebook already know this, but on the day after Gulliver’s passing, we found a kitten in our neighbor’s yard.  Or rather, I walked by and it meowed, otherwise I’d never have seen him there. Thing is, he didn’t belong to our neighbors.  Or anyone else, apparently, even though he was clean, friendly, and […]

One Door Closes…

Today, we will inter Gulliver’s ashes into this beautiful little handmade jar I found on  All of the urns at the crematory were very impersonal, and marble, and austere and just Not Gulli.  But this piece spoke to me. And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears. And love will […]
