Well, having negotiated things properly, I am now a member of Lake View Country Club. I'm a yuppie elitist now. I'm one of the "upwardly mobile" youth. I'm country club snob. Okay, I'm the same guy I was three days ago, but now I get to play golf at a great course just about any […]

Going to the R.E.M. concert tonight. Given their recent "Bush sucks" tour, I'm hoping the rhetoric is kept to a minimum, but I've always respected R.E.M. for voicing their political concerns while keeping their personal lives relatively to themselves. It's well known that front man Michael Stipe is, uhh, of "alternate" sexual orientations, but they […]
Every time I hear "The Cup Of Life" by Ricky Martin I think of Samba de Amigo. Every time. Best drunk college party game ever.
Things in my townhouse are going great. I live in the second apartment out of four: the left apartments get four parking spaces (unlined) and the right get four also. This works out well as most townhouses have, at most, two occupants with cars. There's one problem so far, and one I've yet to solve […]
So it's now been six months that I've been with Carey. Really, it's been six months that we've been talking again. I've moved back to PA, I've fallen in love (5.99 months ago), and I've shaken up my life to be with her, and she with me. We spent last evening together, and details aside, […]
One of my goals before leaving Florida was to play a few of the more exceptional courses in the area. To that end, today I went to PGA Village in Port St. Lucie to play the Dye course. José, Gabe, and Rob filled out the foursome and the weather cooperated. You can see some images […]
It's official: I hate hurricanes. Absolutely freakin' hate 'em. This is just fucking ridiculous. I'll be living on pudding for the next few days, as I imagine my power - and Internet access - will soon be no more. On the plus side, I used Jeanne as an excuse to eat half a gallon of […]
My friend Seth Ellsworth has got his site online. Seth is a: musician student husband Those three words are all synonyms for "poor." If you like Seth's kind of music, pick up his EP for only $7 and help to put some Rice Krispies in his tummy (a demo track is available). Seth and I […]
I'm moving to PA soon (October 10 or so) and in Erie, pets are simply not allowed in apartments or townhouses (not for an extra $300/month). My parents and/or Carey's parents were going to take Flint - my 3-year old Weimaraner - but now they are not. Screwed I am. So my options are thus: […]
Carey and I played nine holes at Green Meadows today. Green Meadows is the course I first played at when I was 15, and have toured the course in 68 before. It's tough for its length (about 6,000 yards) because the greens are smaller than many people's living rooms, each have a false front, and […]
Yesterday's events in quick summary format: Dropped Carey off at the high school at which she's student teaching. Put down security deposit on townhome. Visited uncle (the jeweler) to look at engagement rings and wedding bands. Visited grandma in Bedford, PA. Went to Hoss's. On the way home, we stopped to see some friends of […]
I'm leaving later today to fly to Erie to see Carey, find my new apartment, and that sort of thing. To anyone thinking that this will make my apartment an easy target for theft, think again! I've got a full-time house-sitter. We went to the shooting range the other day and he's accurate enough to […]
I'd really like to eat some ice cream right now, but alas: I have none. This is the true problem with hurricanes: they knock out power and then you can't get milk, ice cream, butter, and eggs for days on end. Woe is me!
For now, at least, I have an Internet connection at home. Only 2800 emails to wade through (though no doubt about 2000 are spam). I'll resume posting things here soon.
I'm back to my apartment. I have power (three of the five buildings in my apartment complex do not). I have running water (and it is safe to drink). However, I do not have an Internet connection. I am at a friend's house now posting this… My apartment complex was not badly hit - some […]
