My trip to boston a couple of weeks back with Jim was a lot of fun. Exploring new places is always an adventure. We stayed at one of Jim’s coworker’s condo downtown. It’s not really fair to refer to Mike as just a coworker – he’s a super great guy. Mike’s and his girlfriend, Lauara ...

Insane Dream Interpretation

10.27.2005 · Posted in Autobiographical

I woke up at 4:03 AM this morning. SCREAMING one long and monotonous yelp until my breath ran out. My heart was beating. That was one real fucking dream. I was living in my old apartment – the 3rd floor of an old house. No roommate, but a cute, and unfortunately straight, twenty-something guy lived ...

I wish I had a camera

I just returned from my daily Starbucks run. The Starbucks I frequent happens to be across the street from the Target Center. Today, in the midst of the “Vikings sex scandal on the sea” scandal, there is a very large cargo van made of glass, with bikini-clad women inside, catching some rays alongside small potted ...

New server on the way

I’ll be migrating to a new server over the next few days. Hopefully it won’t be all that painful – just need to figure out how to transfer the DB and the rest, I’m hoping, will be easy. If the site, or Jim’s, looks to be down when you visit, please check back in the ...

1000 bars in one year

10.03.2005 · Posted in Absurdity

So I find myself sitting in a coffee shop on Sunday night surfing Technorati for interesting things. Low and behold, I find a blog of a guy who labels himself “Bar Guy.” Bar Guy is on a mission to visit 1000 bars in one year, and he’s just about made it. Coincidentally, he’s visited the ...

The old days

10.02.2005 · Posted in Autobiographical

I arrived in Vegas at the McCormack airport to find slot machines in the airport. It was my first time in the only state that had legalized prostitution, though ironically, not in Las Vegas county – apparently they had enough sin without the oldest profession in the world doing business on the strip. I was ...
