At any one time in my life, I've got about five or six friends. That's all. Mostly no more, and rarely any less. Six. 1 2 3 4 5 6. Acquaintances, or hemi-pals, or pals, or "people I know," well, I've got lots of them. More than anyone has friends, that's for sure, and more […]

Last night I had another wonderful time with a cute, fun, intelligent girl. I'm always excited when I meet someone new. She's sarcastic (a good thing), she's geeky (a great thing), and she's adorable in the mature-but-still-energetic-and-spontaneous sort of way. Well, and other ways too. I'm absolutely looking forward to the next time I get […]
I noticed that number five in the top Ten Reasons to Love France was "the food." French food - rather, food named "french" - has been in the news lately, so I thought I'd share my take on French food.
I woke up fairly early this morning and decided to go back to sleep. I went back to sleep for about an hour, and at some point I started dreaming. I decided awhile ago to blog all of my dreams because supposedly that will help you have or remember more (not blogging, just retelling it).
I won a national award for this poem, but it's a bit of a farce. I wrote it in 1995.
I had an absolutely fabulous* time with an absolutely fabulous* dame last night. I guess Friday is the next time we'll get to hang out. The girl's a keeper, friend or otherwise, because she likes steak. Mmmmmm. We went to see Chicago, hung out here at the apartment, ate some ice cream, and talked. A […]
My ex-girlfriend* owes me $900. Today, while using iChat to talk to someone with a .Mac account (I typically use Adium, which can't see .Mac users), she popped online. I haven't spoken to her since shortly after I lent her $900 (about two years ago). I wonder if she'll pay me back. I IMed her […]
This article got me thinking about the time I got a knock on my door and opened it to find two federal marshals: both large men, both carrying pistols (I live in Florida - their jackets weren't too thick). The men informed me that they were federal marshals. According to them, the former lessee of […]
It's a pet peeve of mine when people write to me as "Eric." My name is "Erik." I have nothing against people named Eric and think that, like my name or "Steve" or "Dave" or "Ronald" or "George," "Eric" is a fine name - it's just not mine. If someone continuously called you "Rob" and […]
My To Do list. Blue = "I did it already." There's a story behind most of them, but in the interest of humor, I'm just putting this list up without any explanatory remarks.
I posted my disclaimer and this is the corollary of sorts: the "about me" page. Who cares? Most likely nobody but me (and a few people wasting time at work). On the off-chance that you need a small piece of useless trivia about me, well, perhaps this will help.
I need a bagel humidor or something. Do they exist? I like to eat bagels, so I buy a baker's dozen every week (from Einstein Brothers Bagels). I bought a bread box, but that keeps the bagels "fresh" for all of a day. After three, they're quite hard. Freezing them has the same effect - […]
Well I finally watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Finally because so many people told me I'd like it, but I never had the urge to see it alone. Well, alone I did watch it today, and it was indeed quite amusing. I can see why it's a cult classic, but at the same […]
I just cleaned my ears (squirting warm water up there with one of those bulb thingies). Now I have Superman hearing. I can hear my tower fan from a few rooms away. I can hear my fingerprints rubbing against each other. I can hear the carpet scrunching under my feet as I walk around. They're […]
So I took a nap :-zzz today to try to wait for some goop in my ear (goop that was supposed to - and normally does - clean out ear wax, but has, this time, simply gelled up inside my ear or something - and no, you can't fish it out with a Q-Tip, that […]
