28 And Other Recent Developments

Recently, I have: Turned 28, to relatively little fanfare. Which is probably appropriate, because it’s not a terribly significant birthday. Drinks at the friendly local “We have a ton of awesome beer” establishment were fun, though.  Found a surprisingly viable backup employment plan if I can’t get on anything for the fall season (which I’ll ...

Spring Cleaning

I am a terrible cleaner. I keep my kitchen completely spotless because I spent some time living with people who let food fester and attract pests, but otherwise, my place generally veers between “hit by a tornado” and “aftermath of a car bomb.” Having been unemployed and stuck at home long enough, however, I’ve finally ...

50 Miles

It’s been less than a year since I first headed south on the Marvin Braude Bike Trail, a trail I’d formerly been content to ride the five or six miles north to its terminus, then turn around and stop wherever I’d started. The first time I rode south, I got my ass handed to me. ...

Hmmmm

Well, all the posts that imported seem to have reverted to GMT. I’ve got to figure out how to fix that. Update: Yeah, I have to go through and hand-update all 1885 posts. At least it’ll kill some Unemployment Time.

Only One W Needed

Via Defamer, the perfect one-word [over and over again] summation of being a Lost fan: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcatQSyRK6c&hl=en] I love people with the kind of free time that allows them to put something like this together.

Website Tie-Ins Go Hilariously Insane

If you watched tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, you will be highly, highly amused by the extremely long, hysterically funny song on this site referenced in the episode (warning: audio loads automatically). They had way, way, way too much fun creating that. It’s almost as long as the goddamn episode, but sweet ...

An Odd (Healthy) Choice

I eat a lot of Healthy Choice frozen food. I am a terrible cook and I’m trying to lose weight, so their products appeal to me. One of their more respectably tasty entrĂ©es is their “Chicken Margherita”, a nice little chicken and pasta dish. For years, it was served in the traditional small, flat box. ...

Only Took Me Two And A Half Years

I’ve finally uploaded the last of the best of my Europe photos, from my 2005 trip with Mark. Here’s a link to the full set, the captions have descriptions of what the hell it is that you’re looking at, along with some entertaining stories of stuff we did while over in Euroland. If, unlike me, ...

‘Twas The Night Before Strike-mas 2

‘Twas the night before Strike-mas, and through Hollywood Every crew member thought, “Oy, this can’t be good.” The pink slips had been rolling on in for weeks And news only came out in rumors and leaks. The children were nestled all snug in their beds While parents sought Advil to quiet their heads I was ...

Happy New Year! 2

Hope everyone had fun last night. I definitely did, though I believe “getting hammered and playing Cranium” qualifying as fun makes me approximately 400 years old. Sadly, this will be my last update for a few days because I’m about to get sucked back into the vortex of work. My boss is directing the episode ...
