We’re All Here

Melissa (MoonDragon) is visiting tomorrow evening, and I’ll be picking her up at O’Hare. Sunday, we’re heading to Kenosha to meet up with other WH folk… and we’re going to see Dustin (a3dmofo) before the dinner. At least, that’s the plan… I have some concerns about us waking up in time, hangovers and all. :D This weekend will mark my…

Updating at 5 AM, and I’m Still Late

Walked in the door about 30 minutes ago. Working on my first drink of the night/day (Edit: Make that second). I’ve been at work since about 8:30 this morning. Er… yesterday morning. I got direction on what to do, finally, at around 8:30 PM. Ah well. These hours come with the territory, I suppose. Nice to feel needed every once…

A Weird Sci-Fi Moment

As I was driving to work today, I came across a billboard with this image. Apparently, it’s some film with Eddie Murphy in it. But I’ve never heard ANYTHING about it… didn’t know about it, didn’t recognize the title. Seeing him in some kind of spacesuit sort of freaked me out. It was one of those Sci-Fi moments in movies…

Cavity, v 2.0

As I was eating lunch, I felt my filling pop out. I ran to the bathroom, checked it out, saw that there was a big divot in one of my teeth, and called the dentist. Got an appointment for 5:15 PM. Turns out, I am an overreactive hypochondriac. :) The divot was supposed to be there, and Dr. Tobias was…

Needles, Anesthetic and Thankfulness

Cavity day! Here are some pics: This is what I see, right as the chair is moving to its prone position. The needle. *shudder* Actually, my dentist (Dr. Tobias) was remarkably nice about explaining everything to me. He went right in with the needle, no swap or local anasthetic. When I asked him about, he just said "You don’t need…

Visiting Jacki

Jacki recently moved a bit farther outside of Columbus, with Andy. He’s a great guy, and I got to meet him on Sunday. The house is gorgeous, and Jacki showed me all the work that Andy’s put into the place (and all he’s planning to do). This is a shot of him with his grandson Jake. Hanging out with Devin,…

Welcome to the Party!

A brief glimpse at the alcohol present. This table shot doesn’t include the table of food outside, the BBQ, and the keg of beer. Writers, more than anyone else on the planet, know how to throw a good party. A great goodbye sign that Dan made for Meghan and Jim. Meghan and Jim, northbound and headed for the professorial life….

I Get My Ass Kicked For Not Writing

After seeing Dipti, I called up Jason and Layla, friends of mine from the grad program at OSU. They recently had (well… recently being over a year ago) a beautiful baby girl, Miranda, and I stopped by to see all three of them. Jebus. It’s been ages – the last time I saw Miranda, she was a small little ball,…

Dipti Puts Me to Shame, Literally and Metaphorically

Dipti, someone I’ve known since middle school, is also living in Columbus. I spent most of Saturday day flitting around town, trying to catch up with folk. Dipti and I dated briefly during our undergrad years, and she’s someone I’ve gotten along with smashingly. Between her and Melinda, I feel like the three of us constantly know what the other…

Juliet vs. Felix

I got up around 10:30, and staggered to my car. There was an Einstein Bros. somewhere nearby, and I drove up and down High Street in search. I grabbed two large coffees, one lemon poppyseed muffin and one mango orange muffin. Over breakfast, Juliet and I talked about my blog. We had a really interesting conversation about the act of…

Arrival

I pull into Columbus a little after midnight, and roll up to Juliet’s house. She lives in German Village , a rather cool, old part of Columbus… Victorian houses, brick-paved streets. Always a part of the city where I secretly wanted to live. We shot the shit for a good long while, splitting a pint of Jim Beam between us….

Road Trip, Continued

Around here (on the outskirts of Indiana), the sun broke open and lit up the interstate. "Summertime" by the Sundays was on my radio, and I felt incredibly good. I took this picture to capture the moment: Near Indianapolis, there is a sign for the border between Whitestown and Brownsburg. I laugh everytime I pass by. On the border of…
