I’ve officially been Googled and I couldn’t be more ecstatic! Google Maps has released the Minneapolis area of their Street View functionality. I had noticed a car this summer as it approached me while stopped at a traffic light near my home. It had a funny contraption atop it. I remember at the time thinking […]
… at least this Homo’s operandi. I’ve lived in a two bedroom condo alone for the last nine months. Initially I had turned the second bedroom into an exercise area. I went out and bought a free weight set, an adjustable bench, and covered the floor with those interlocking gym mats. In those nine months […]

On Labor Day I rode down to the bridge site with my friend Jason. I had made the trip once before, the weekend after the collapse, but at that time my camera’s batteries were dead and they weren’t allowing anyone close enough to see anything. This turned out to be the weekend they opened the […]
… hasn’t showed. I’ve sat at Vera’s for an hour. Okay, so I brought my laptop and haven’t otherwise just been sitting here staring out the window in hopes that he’ll show. (As if!) I actually met him a couple of months ago while at the Friday night Proud AA meting. He was in treatment […]
