Ich Bin Ein Photographer

Cameron’s post about her selection by the fine folks of Schmap.com reminded me to post this. For some reason, they selected my photo of a weird-ass duck for inclusion in their guide to Berlin.

Fleeing The Scene

And now, I’m going to San Diego, where instead of arguing with friends over the merits and possible length of the writers’ strike, I’m going to go hang out with my mother for a day. Whee!

Back to Life, Back to Reality

Chicago was awesome. The game was ridiculous. Reuniafest was everything I’d hoped for and then some. I didn’t get to see everyone I wanted to see since I was only in town for two and a half days, but I got to see a decent number of y’all, which was great. I didn’t want to ...

I Need To Get Out More 1

Specifically, out of North America: create your own visited countries map I should at least hit up some big countries like Australia, Russia, and China. Minimal effort, maximum map-filling. There’s also a way to make a map of the states you’ve visited, but I fear mine might be a bit boring. Thanks to Cameron and ...

D’oh! 1

One of the brides in the wedding I’m going to in Chicago this weekend (lesbians, not polygamists) emailed all their out of town guests to warn us about the current Transportation Fun Zone that’s been declared in the South Loop. This should be fun.

This Is Not My Week 2

First, there was the whole issue of the bad timing of my trip to Atlanta. Then when I came back, the cat decided I was a chew toy. Now, we have the trifecta: Disease! All my Atlanta-based relatives came over for brunch on Sunday afternoon, and I got to hold Elias, my 5-month old nephew, ...
