More Cure.

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

More pictures on flickr. 12 of Robert Smith in total. They were taken with no flash–even after dark. Some have been processed a bit, and some were pushing the limits of the digital zoom, but there were at least a dozen salvageable with technology. And, damn, we were /that/ close. It still floors me that […]

New Orleans follow-up: Goldie’s safe!

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

A while ago, I posted about the trip I took to New Orleans. It was about this time last year that we were there. I also wrote an article for Red Hat Magazine. One of the people that I wrote about was Goldie, a street performer that we met one night on Bourbon Street. We […]

Visited states, etcetera.

Sunday, March 19th, 2006

Robust serves up the visited states map meme, and, lo, lemming-like, I proceed: Also, the list: California San Francisco a pair of times–sublime and marvelous. Best 2 memories: Mission after dark, a hole-in-the-wall Mexican place, then a bar at which you could still smoke with a thick wood bar top grooved by elbows. Served cold […]

Disney, part 2

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

Here’s the pictures from Disney. I’d stop and chat about ’em, but mostly I’ve used this long weekend to get errands run and stuff done around the house. Yay, cleaner and saner home environs!

Disney, part 1

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005

I didn’t want to make a real Disney post until I had finished working on the photos, and working on the photos has taken a backseat to getting some work stuff accomplished, but rest assured I am making progress on both fronts at the moment. As you can see, there is at least one good […]

See ya later

We’re off to see the Mouse!

Finally. The New Orleans post.

Wednesday, September 7th, 2005

No, not THAT New Orleans post. This one’s about the New Orleans that WAS. In June. When I was there for a week. I know, I know. I was beginning to think I’d never get around to it either. But after recent events I sort of wanted to take a pass or two through the […]

Caribbean getaway (and congrats to S & S Wills!)

Wednesday, May 18th, 2005

Well, we got on a plane late last week and jetted off to St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. It was lovely. The occasion? Ah — dear friends marrying each other, of course! We saw Sam and Steve get hitched beneath a rooftop gazebo–a brilliant white-on-white stage that looked across the islands and the […]

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 […]
