More puppy-ness.

Wednesday, November 24th, 2004

New puppy picture, taken just yesterday. Gandalf the GreySpork will be coming home Saturday afternoon. The pre-emptive PetSmart run has occurred and, basically, the dog is already spoiled before he even sets paw inside the door. New bed, new bones, new collar and tags. New toys, new treats, new blankies. He’s set. We pick him […]

Pup, Incoming.

Monday, November 22nd, 2004

The decision has been made, the deposit sent. The Irish Greyhound pup shown here will be showing up at our place sometime in the next 2 to 4 weeks. I think K has decided on a name for the new addition — he is the son of Merlin (and mom Bella), so he’s likely to […]

Familiar Face gets Lost

Thursday, November 18th, 2004

We’ve been watching one of the better new shows on TV, Lost (Wednesdays at 8PM on ABC). Lost is a horror/adventure series from the creator of Alias (and Felicity, but, hey, don’t hold that travesty against him). One of the writers on staff is David Fury, who wrote for Angel and Buffy. Though it’s not […]

Oh, and by the way, we went to Vegas.

Monday, November 15th, 2004

So my roommate and I abandoned the kitten and took to the skies for a trip to Vegas. Well, ok, so we didn’t so much abandon her as leave her in the care of M and C and E, all enlisted to feed her and change her litter and throw the mousie for her to […]

Bush makes me sick

Monday, November 8th, 2004

What a week. There was all the hubbub of wedding and then of the Hallow’s/Wedding party, and then the scramble to get packed and ready to head to Las Vegas for a few days. On Election Day. I had voted early so I didn’t have to worry about anything but catching the election returns as […]

Night of the Living Wed

Monday, November 1st, 2004

Our annual Halloween bash is over. I find myself a little sad — as I do every year — and a little relieved. It’s a TON of work, but every year so far I find myself missing the excitement of it, the very *madness* of it, as soon as it is done. And I always […]

Conspiracy theories, part the first

Tuesday, October 19th, 2004

There’s nothing like reading the good thick biography of a former president in the Honda dealership to bring out the wackos. I’m sitting at Crown of Durham/Chapel Hill (who previously used to give good service and now seem to be able to break my car in new and unfortunate ways every time I bring it […]

What the hell is wrong with you people?

Monday, October 18th, 2004

In the upcoming election, 11 states have on the ballot initiatives to either block, ban, or discourage gay partnerships. The Republican euphamism is ‘protect marriage,’ but it’s clear after even a moment’s study that their only intent is to damage, deny, or denigrate homosexual relationships. To ensure that queer partners are ‘less’ than straight ones. […]

CSI:NY This show sucks. Jon Stewart’s Crossfire appearance Funny. Japan Vegas dream Ok, so I had another of my really whacked out dreams that don’t make any freakin’ sense. K. and I were in a town I can only describe as Japan Vegas. A friend at work says it sounds to him like Tokyo’s light […]

George Lucas is one greedy fuck.

Monday, September 20th, 2004

When asked why he was releasing the Star Wars trilogy on DVD now, as opposed to after Ep. 6 as originally planned, George Lucas said: “Just because the market has shifted so dramatically. A lot of people are getting very worried about piracy. That has really eaten dramatically into the sales. It really just came […]
