Screambody

Kelly Dobson’s ScreamBody: a very cool device, for when you need to scream in a potentially inappropriateplace. If you can, check out the Full-size movie for more info on how she created the thing. Is it wrong that I think she’s hot? I mean, on TOP of the fact that she builds cool devices. She’san MIT doctoral student whose projects…

Friends++

Around 10:30, Justin shows up, along with Craig and Michael shortly thereafter. I had relocated myself closer to the pool table, partly so I could know when I was up… and also so I could just *watch* the game. For lack of anything better to do, I wanted to at least stare at the table instead of the TV. Here’s…

Notes

I’m sitting at a bar alone for the first time in what feels like a year. Now that I no longer smoke, it’s hard to figure out how to occupy my hands, my time. Most everyone else here is in a group or pair. It feels awkward to sit alone with only an empty chair for company. Earlier, I was…

Flying Solo

So I showed up to Inner Town way early. I was expecting Justin to arrive around 9:30 PM, and so got here right around 9. I misheard him, as he didn’t walk in until more about 10:30 PM. For a good hour, I just hung out by myself at a table… staring at the TV a bit, and feeling a…

Rejection Letter (finally)

I sent this stuff out in April. Note to anyone considering trying to get poetry published… this shit takes a while. Prepare yourself for a lot of waiting until those rejection letters come in.

Today was Kashif’s first

Today was Kashif’s first day, as he’s helping out part-time with some development work. Despite the fact that we have a smallish area, we were able to find him an empty cube where he could set up shop. Anyone recognize that fancy flower-covered Mac in the background?

Artful Dodging

Met up with Liz and Steph, and had several drinks at the Artful Dodger. Good conversations, and a lot of laughs as per usual – always great to spent time with them. I got two good book recommendations that I need to check out, in the coming weeks.

Billiards @ Clubfoot, Part 2

Stopped in at Justin’s place, and met up with Justin, Howard and Craig (who was visiting from Eugene, OR and who I first met at a backyard cookout many months ago). I was greeted with smiles, and a tupperware container full of mashed Jello shots (which I called Jello Slurry™). Regardless, it was still pretty damn effective. My friends seem…

I stopped by to

I stopped by to see Stacey, Shane and Jasmine. Today was their last day in the hospital, and I was heading back to Chicago. In many ways, we were all going back to our respective homes. I got to hold Jasmine for a good while today, and waited around until 1:00PM when the photographer arrived. I walked with them to…

Hanging out with Jasmine

Dad, looking over Stacey’s shoulder… trying to catch a glimpse of Jasmine with her eyes open. Dad and Jasmine, checking each other out. Mom and Jasmine. Uncle Felix. :)
