Think I’m going to get a tv…

    I’ve got a $100 gift card coming from a camera bag manufacturer, think I’ll apply it to a tv purchase. It’ll be a smallish one, prob 20″ or smaller. It’s mostly for baseball, there’s already been to many times that I’d like to watch a game but Rick wants to watch a show too… …

A friend of mine from college…

    I was just reading some articles that a friend of mine from college wrote for a little paper in Colorado. He writes under the name “Kenneth Cleaver” and he is hilarious. If you enjoy self deprecating, intelligent humor you have to check him out here: http://www.csindy.com/csindy/authors/kennethhcleaver.html Sometimes the replies he gets are as funny …

Bleah…

    Had to take Rick downtown for a CT scan. He’s really been in a lot of pain, hopefully they’ll be able to take care of this silliness one way or another. We got great directions, “It’s in Georgetown”, yeah, if you consider American University Georgetown then I guess it is. Anyway, hopefully he’ll be …

Marley DVD…

    It’s pretty good, it’s got some great live footage that I wasn’t expecting. The only real complaint I have is that it’s a bit of a mishmash of materials. Every time I see the live clips, I wish I could see the entire concert or appearence. Some of the more amazing performances were on …

The heat must…

… bring out all the weirdos. Seriously, work yesterday was filled with more bitching, kvetching customers than I remember having in a long time. You’d think I was back in Rockville…. I’m home today because er… let’s just say I don’t wany to stray too far from the john. Must have been something I ate… …

A great article

    The NY Times had a great article in it this last sunday. You can find it here: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/04/17/weekinreview/17bawer.html?oref=login You have to register, but it’s free and it’s well worth it for the read. It talks about Norway and how they see themselves as the richest country on Earth vs. economic reality.  Norway is known …

Yippee!

    My new Peanuts book is here. They are reprinting every peanuts strip ever made, in chronological order. This is the third book, it covers from 1955 to 1956. He wrote the strip until 2002! It’ll be a while till they’re finished. The book (along with a Bob Marley DVD) is my “reward” for spending …

Some random thoughts from my Ithaca trip

    If you’re curious, I’ve put up a couple of approved pictures of my cousin Beth in my gallery on my home page. While we were in the doctor’s office waiting for Beth to be seen, a lady with a really cute kid came in. He was funny, he had two words to use, “Nana” …

I guess I’m not 18 anymore…

    I’ve been eating all the same things I used to in college. You know, subs, pizza, wings, etc. I feel like shit. I know I’ve put on a couple of pounds and I have zero energy. At least I’m not eating at the same hours I used to, I think that might kill me …

A turn for the worse…

    Well, Beth had a relapse of paratonsilatitus… or something like that. Basicly she had to have an abcess in her throat lanced and drained. Needless to say, she’s in no mood for even talking let alone going out and having fun. I hope she’s sleeping well, it’s about the best thing to do right …
