ARGHH!

    Today at work we were talking about New Orleans, hurricanes, etc. and there was a lot of ignorent talk about the economics of the situation. The thing that made me the most nuts was the talk about the “bright side” of the disaster. “At least the recovery will employ lots of people, it will …

Katrina

    What a mess… Rick and I watched the weather channel the night before the hurricane hit. They interviewed some people in Biloxi who were going to ride out the storm and we joked about Katrina weeding out the gene pool in Mississippi. Sure was a lot funnier when they were alive… I do hope …

Tshirts..

    This has been bugging me for a while, but an event today has pushed me over the edge. There was once a time in which fashion houses had their designs advertise for them. “Ohh, what are you wearing, it’s sooo nice!” Before long, the reason people wore certain clothes was because of he designers. …

A good day

    I went downtown today and took Giane to Perry’s for brunch. This is a restaurant in Adams Morgan that has a brunch buffet. The food is pretty good, but the main attraction is the drag queens that lip sync to various songs. They really are something to behold, I don’t want to think about …

New stuff on the site

    I have managed to put up a rather lame piece on Black Sabbath and a short diatribe about my political beliefs. I’m sure that the politics thing will manage to piss everyone off, but that’s what discussions about politics are supposed to be about. I managed to say what I wanted to about Black …

I know, I know….

    No, I still haven’t put anything up on the web site. I do have several things going and I should have at least one of them up by sunday night. Nothing much is going on, I did a lot of nothing today and it felt good. I did write up my official withdrawl from …

Yet another discerning community…

    I’ve been thinking that I want to try wearing some sort of cologne recently. I tried a sample of something or other the other day and it was nice to smell good:-) The store has two walls of windows, and no matter what time of the year it is, the sun beams in and …

    Got my passport today. Egypt feels like it’s one step closer. Last night I dreamt that I was going to school overseas, in Russia of all places. It was the typical excitement of going and the adventure of going dream, but I never got there…     Ooog, I restarted exercising again, and I feel …

Hmm Hmm Hmm, you know the tune

    A couple of songs with some some similar lyrics have been running through my head recently. Who can name them? Here’s the lyrics in question: “When your world is full of strange arrangements     and Gravity won’t pull you through…” “When your gravity is down and negativity won’t pull you through.” Bonus points if …

Done!

    We finished up our second night in the darkroom last night. Everyone managed to get a decent print out of the experience and I think that everyone was glad we went. One of my students had what I consider the best accidentaly good picture I have ever seen. It is a portrait of two …
