CD’s

I stopped by Reckless today, on the way home. Picked up Beth Orton’s Daybreaker, and Control by Pedro the Lion. So far though, I’ve been looping Beth Orton’s "Carmella" over and over and over again.

Alex

Found out today that Alex is planning on packing up and moving away from Chicago. This was a bit of a shock, and I’m not sure it’s all sunk in just yet. From the way he talks, it sounds like he believes it’s the right decision. He’s also moving in with Linda, which is another facet to things. But for…

Woozy

All day today, I’ve been feeling pretty fuzzy and a few steps behind. And it looks like this weekend’s going to be more of the same – lots of activities, and a fair amount of booze on the menu. But – as badly as I felt this morning, my hurting PALED in comparison to what Ben and Justin experienced. They…

Zing!

Steph’s birthday is today. A bunch of us gathered at Holiday to celebrate, and to throw down some booze on her behalf. Steph and Matt, talking away. Matt also happens to be a bouncer at Holiday (where we were drinking).   Mike and Steph take a breather from their fashion show planning.   Group shot: Liz, Mandy, Steph and Hollis….

Corpse Car

I am convinced, seeing how I’ve seen this car each time I’ve walked by for the past four weeks… I’m convinced there’s a corpse in the back seat or the trunk. It’s been parked in the exact same spot, and it doesn’t look like it’s been moved. One of these days, if it’s still down there… I’m gonna go peek…

Shopping For Steph

Tomorrow is Steph’s birthday, and my gift is going to be this multi-part thing. One component is a book, which I found at Quimby’s. As I was browsing, I stumbled across a newer collection of "The Books of Magic." I’ve been following this comic for a while, and it’s been something like 2 years since I’ve purchased any part of…

Mega Mango Margarita Madness

I meant to brag about this last week, but forgot to mention it on the blog. Today, there was a covert operation at work to go to Caesar’s for lunch. I’ve been to Caesar’s once before, for Phil and Charity’s wedding reception. And from that time, I learned about the potency of their margaritas. Today, a big group of us…

Leaving Home, Heading Home

Wake up, 4:30 AM. Shave, shower, pack. On the road by 5:00 AM, sipping on cheap ass gas station coffee and trying to wake up. For the first hour or so, I was pretty laid back… but as the sun rose and the coffee bubbled in my bloodstream, I opened up more and more to the day. In high school,…

This Just In!

Ok. It’s Wednesday, July 16th. My sister just called to let me know that John Travolta did in fact show up, and gave a speech towards the end of the evening. Dammit! To top things off, my dad got his picture taken with Neil Armstrong – which is awesome because he was really hoping to get that chance. He was…

Doh!

In the hustle and bustle of things, I forgot to bring my camera with me to Ohio. Sucks, but oh well. I don’t feel comfortable including my family into this blog, so it’s just as well. What you missed – the National Aviation Hall of Fame. My uncle was being honored today, and inducted as a Fellow. Everyone got super…

Home: Regression

At home in Indianapolis, I stayed in my old bedroom and crashed around midnight. While I’m back at my old house, I tend to regress as far as my reading materials. I often sift through all the old books still lying around (my parents throw away NOTHING), which are often books that I read when I was much, much younger….

Found Art Lost

At work this morning, I was still dealing with residue from hanging out with the family. I had a rather negative outlook that took most of the day to shake off. On my walk to work, however, I noticed that the artwork near the parking lot had been removed. Despite my earlier entries, seeing everything removed really did make me…
