Overheard in the Parking Lot

“It’s like putting on a pair of pants,” commented the rather portly large-framed driver rather matter-of-factly to his passenger after stowing his briefcase and jacket in the back seat and climbing into his Mazda MX-5. I had a hard time not laughing about that as I walked past them on the way to my car. […]

Mmm Mmm Couch Time

Last week was busy since there’s a show approaching. We open in two weeks. I love movies. I think they’re the best way to escape from this world. It was so nice to settle down on various couches among great company and watch a few movies. Idiocracy is funny, especially when with a group of […]

I did, unknowingly, and I’m not worried. I have good karma when it comes to parking. I usually find it without too many problems and […]

Rest in Peace, Neva

I received word that Neva — my first and last pet — died this morning. She hadn’t been under my care in over a year and so I don’t have any more details, except that she wasn’t all that old. I’m bummed that this is the only photo I could find of her, since it […]

Just a Dream

It’s five in the morning and I awaken from a dream. I threw a party at my place. It must have been a crazy one, since there were empties everywhere and half-empty bottle of booze on the counter. I wake up and find that my guests have already made breakfast for themselves. There are health […]

What a Week

A lot of little things got scheduled over the past few weeks and all ended up transpiring in the past couple days. This past week was very busy as a result. In addition to my day job I… worked for four different clients in three different states, much of it by phone did one day […]
