Nature: 1 | Humans: 0

Talking to TS7 today, he shared a few pics of the weather in his neck of the world (DC). There’s some serious snow going down! I had no idea! Here’s a shot of the parking lot where he lives: Hahahaha – this images cracked us both up. You can see the entire thought process that began with a strong sense…

Music

Before I headed home, I stopped in a Reckless Records to look for a few things (it’s a great place, don’t judge the store by its unfortunately loud rollovers). I got Alien Lanes (Guided by Voices) and Pink Moon (Nick Drake). It’s been a really long time since I’ve purchased music. I tend to listen to the same old things…

Walking Home Past My Old Home

I used to live on this street, before I moved. I noticed a blue plastic bag stuck in a tree, pushed there by a really strong breeze. Oddly, I thought of ActionScript, about programming, and about how randomness often creates things we don’t expect.

Rough Draft and a Decision

Working on an idea that I got a while back, when I went drinking with Justin. Today, I think I decided that I’m going to get serious again about writing. I’ve been meaning to review the poems I wrote for my thesis while studying at OSU, and they’ve just been sitting dormant for about 2 years now. Since Matt and…

Coffee

Let’s see… I went to return some movies (and to rent some more) around 11. Walked around the neighborhood some on the way. Here’s one that’s near Damen and Wabansia… a tree with a bunch of Christmas lights still strung all over it. Afterwards, I ambled down Milwaukee and went inside Filter. I’ve gotten a few things from the place…

Anti-Anti-Social

Wow – I was actually out and about late this morning, into the afternoon. Got a few sporadic pics here and there. Eating a very late lunch, and I’ll update soon.

Slacking

And… all I really missed out on was a full day of slacking around the apartment. I ended up making a chicken dish with the crock pot, which turned out pretty well. The chicken ended up being a bit dry, and could use some spicing up… but a good turnout for my first time trying to use meat of some…

Work on a Saturday | Three Day Weekend

I guess things balance themselves out. I went in yesterday to attend to some stuff that needed to go up Monday. I was told a launch date of the 19th/20th, but whatever. Spent a few hours there getting things in order and caught a train back home around 2:30, 3:00 PM. To be honest, it doesn’t feel that bad. Especially…

Late

Crap! I can’t believe I blanked out on updating this thing last night. Gimme a bit. I’ll add to this day’s entry shortly.

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle : Excerpt

The water was up to my throat. Now it was wrapped around my neck like a noose. In anticipation, I was beginning to find it difficult to breathe. My heart, now underwater, was working hard to tick off the time it had remaining. At this rate, I would have another five minutes or so before the water covered my mouth…

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

Definitely check this book out if you have a chance. I’m puzzled by it, still not entirely sure what happened even though I’ve finished it… but it’s mesmerizing and wholly different than any other book I’ve read. Thanks, Justin, for giving me this book. Can’t wait to talk about it.

Assisting Romance Is Better Than No Romance

All of us got into this interesting conversation about Valentine’s day, and the likelihood of pleasing the "significant other." Ben had planned on spending the evening making dinner with his wife… and joked that the only way they could go "out" to eat was if they found a sitter. Or if I volunteered. To his surprise, I said I would….
