Oh Yeah, That Thing [Oct. 5th, 2006|04:28 pm]
Well, I guess I'm not going to be attending my ten year high school reunion after all. The event is this coming Saturday and I'm not enthusiastic about the idea of picking up a last-minute plane ticket, nor am I enthusiastic about sweet talking the reunion committee into accepting a last-minute payment. And besides that, 66 bucks per person? For a high school reunion at a bowling alley?

It's funny. For the last year or two I was excited about the idea of attending the reunion. Not because there were a bunch of people I wanted to see, per se (most of my high school friends were not in my graduating class), but mainly because I wanted to show myself off. You see, I'm way, way cooler, more attractive, and more interesting to talk to than I ever was in high school (if you think that's a boastful statement, you must not have known me in high school). But then the invitation came in the mail, and suddenly the reunion was no longer an abstract idea and it started to feel kind of, well, lame. As did my desire to impress people I haven't seen in a decade.

Still, there were several people I would have liked to catch up with, and of course there was my "where are they now" curiosity, but it looks like my indecision has passed into a de facto decision not to attend.

C'est la vie.

I'll Have The Harvey Wallbangercicle [Sep. 22nd, 2006|04:52 pm]
Should I be disturbed because the ice cream truck which has been parked in front of my workplace for the last hour is playing Little Brown Jug? Just what are they putting in kids' confections these days?

Sorry I missed the posting of the puzzle yesterday. In my defense, I was working all day. And all night.

Greetings From PST [Aug. 31st, 2006|03:45 pm]
The TV doc on which I have been working is on hiatus this week, so nimiety and I are taking a vacation. She spent a few days in Portland and I flew out and joined her. Now we're visiting the bay area for the first time in either of our lives.

San Francisco is amazing. The two of us spent all day yesterday driving around the city with no map to guide us. That's the way she prefers to wander, but as many of you know, it's kind of a foreign idea to me. Intimidating as the idea was, going mapless was absolutely the right idea. There's something about blindly finding one's way that makes every inch of a city into something worth seeing, rather than dividing the geography into destinations and places between destinations. That being said, we did manage to find the Mission District, Coit Tower, Haight Street, the Castro, the base of the Transamerica pyramid, have a picnic in Golden Gate Park, and still find time to drive across the Golden Gate Bridge and down the famous winding section of Lombard Street.

As happy as I am with my automobile-free life in New York, I still love to drive, so tooling around San Francisco in a rented car has been a thrill. Toward the beginning of the day I was climbing up all the steep inclines I could find, but I promised nimiety I would cut it out after she protested that I was giving her heart attacks. Next time, I'll be sure to pack the defibrillator.

In other news, the latest puzzle remains unsolved as of this writing. I'll be back in New York on Sunday and back to work on Monday (yes, I know Monday is Labor Day).

See you all later!

The Dog (Planets) of War [Aug. 24th, 2006|11:40 pm]
So, two separate people on my friends list [limiter3118 | reedthespis] have commented on the reclassification of Pluto as a "dwarf planet", which has led to some, well, let's just call it impassioned debate.

Folks, this is a perfect example of the dark side of the Internet age. Being bombarded day after day with an endless stream of information has numbed our sense of priority to the point that we are pouring righteous energy into arguments about the scientific classification of a celestial body that is too small and far away for us to see with our naked eyes. In case you haven't noticed, there are quite a few important issues here on Earth begging for this kind of attention.

Specifically, tomatoes. Vegetable or fruit?

Add This to Your Quotation Rotation [Aug. 10th, 2006|03:42 am]
"Nature gave man a brain and a Mind, and it is the brain that is still a work in progress."

–Dio-genes, The Theory of the Cause of Homosexuality (Gaydom)

If you want a good laugh, you can download and read the whole treatise, which was sent to the LGBT nonprofit where my friend, Chris, works. Those of you who recently spent a year of your lives researching and composing theses may get a special kick out of it.
