Early Morning

It got pretty cold last night, and as I was walking to my car this morning… I spotted a small patch of leaves that had recently fallen to the ground. The odd thing was that, everywhere else along the street, the leaves on the ground were in varying stages of yellow and brown. But this small carpeting was a still…

Well

I wish I had more, but I spent most of tonight on the computer. I tried writing some, and eeked out a crappy poem for Matt. But the plus side is that I got writing again – it’s going to take some time to get back fully in the practice of writing consistently, so today’s a start. I talked with…

Saturday = Work Day

Justin and I are heading in to the office, to try to hash out an idea we had a few weeks back. I’m picking him up tomorrow at 9, we’re heading to DeMar’s for breakfast, and will most likely spend the day geeking out and planning. Should be fun. :)

Quiet Day

Ben was out. Jill was out. Rey and Deb were both out. Quiet day at the office. Justin was in a really bad mood, and couldn’t seem to shake it for most of the day. He lost his cellphone sometime last night, and I think that just added to his dark mood. We talked a bit at the end of…

Little Brother

After work, Justin and I hit microcenter for some errands. I wanted to buy a laser printer, and he needed a few items. This is a fairly big, impulsive purchase for me… so I’m surprised I just out and out did it, without really doing much research or giving it much thought. This morning, I decided I wanted a printer….

Work Meeting Becomes Lunch Meeting

What started out as a late-morning meeting evolved into a lunch outing. Rey suggested we all go to Manny’s, which ended up being fan-fucking-tastic. As it turns out, Manny’s is on 1141 S. Jefferson St., not far at all from where I was a few weeks back when I went to go pick up a UPS package. Interior shot, as…

Meh

I meant to get the Ohio pictures done tonight. But… I’m drunk, and tired, and thinking about sleep soon. So – tough luck. Check back in a few days.

Josh

Justin stuck around with me after work… trying to troubleshoot a stupid Flash problem. I never did figure out what the fuck was wrong, and ended up applying a manual hack to get things working properly. Fuck – I was so disgusted, I felt bad for Justin sticking around. We both went down to Dunphy’s, and had a few drinks…

I Think

I think I deserve some kind of nerd award for coming up with that thing. After all, I’m the… What’s that you’re saying? I can’t hear you – you’ll need to speak up. The only thing nerdier… that the gang sign is asking… for a nerd awa…

More Evidence Of A Storm

When I stepped off the train this evening, rain was coming down pretty hard. This morning, I read that it was going to be in the low 70’s. As I stepped outside, I decided I didn’t want to bring my jacket. No umbrella either. This evening, between the train and my house, I got utterly, wholly, soaked. I’m talking wet…

Evidence Of A Storm

Saw this on my way to work this morning. The pine tree in the yard was draped with tons of leaves that obviously got blown from somewhere else. They looked less from a tree, and more like plant leaves that got ripped by, what must have been some seriously strong winds. I was dead to the world last night. I…
