Six MCAD students crammed into a booth meant for four. Five girls and one guy – clearly a homo. Girl is sitting at a table by herself in front of the opened french doors to 25th St. She has perfect posture and is holding her hands in a position around her coffee – one in […]
I spent nearly an hour trying to get from my home on the south end of downtown to pick up my buddy Rambo on the north end. In Minnesota there is a running joke about our climate; we have only two seasons – Winter and Road Construction. I complain about the road construction every summer […]
Broke my usual habit of going to Vera’s this evening to stop in at The Bad Waitress. I like it here. Good, cheap food. Jukebox. dimly lit. Free wireless. No-nonsense staff, who, despite the name, are actually pretty cool. I stole the image off their website. Nobody sue me, please. There are young, just-turned 21 […]
My friend Mark took this photo of Lake Calhoun after getting out of a meditation meeting at the Minnesota Zen Center. The photo was taken using his iPhone, so the resolution isn’t of superb quality, but the end result is beautiful nonetheless.
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 […]

The parking lot was filled with spectators, a lit stage was on one side with a couple of people addressing the crowd. A Fox 9 new van was parked in the corner of the lot with its satellite extended. A stage was […]
It’s official – we’ve hit 100 degrees for the first time in 11 years. Can it be over now? I’m tired of stepping foot outside and instantly sweating! I’d take 40 below any day of the week. But honestly, I should really have something better to talk about than the weather, but I don’t. Life […]
It’s official – Minneapolis is getting a Hamburger Mary’s! I’ve never actually been to a HMs before – just heard about them. My friend Justin actually works at the one in Vegas and he’s loving it. I had signed up to receive updates on the restaurant many moons ago and had forgotten about it until […]
I’ve had comments guessing at the country of origin of my mystery voicemail leaver. Polish, Russian, Persian, Indian, Arabic – who knows. But here she is on Thanksgiving still trying to get a hold of somebody. I’m starting to feel bad for her because she obviously doesn’t know that she’s calling the wrong number. And […]
