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…

Guilty Secret, #1

I know, deep down, that Chicken McNuggets are made out of rat tails and rooster anuses. But I can’t help it – I like them. Particularly for road trips. If I’m driving a long enough distance to necessitate food, I will often stop at McDonald’s and get the biggest order (20 pieces). I’ve found them to be by far the…

Road Trip

I leave work around 3 PM. I’m out in the suburbs, so it takes me almost 2 and 1/2 hours to get past the city, anywhere near I-65 South to Indianapolis. For some reason, every time I pass this particular overpass… I think of brontosaurs. Not sure why, but I do: Once you actually enter Indiana, the ride down into…

Josh Installs the AIWA

On Thursday, I purchased a new CD player for my car. My friend and coworker Josh agreed to help me install the thing today, and I sat in the back feeling generally useless and snapped a few photos:

Driving Makes Me Happy

On the way to work, I was filled with nervous energy, thinking about the road trip to Columbus. The drive in was good, and I finally got that poem-I-want-to-write feeling once more. I was going to be driving into the night, heading across three states, had a pint of whiskey in the trunk, would be staying with the coolest girl,…

Columbus… Ho!

Packing right now. Laundry is tumbling in the dryer, I’m sleepy as can be, and I’m sipping on a beer. Gathering my CD’s together, and inventorying (is that even a word?) what I need for a short jaunt over to Cow Town. This will be fun. My first road trip back to Columbus in ages, and I’m armed with a…

Witnessing a Breakup, 5:57 AM

Got up early today, so I could make it to work earlier. I’m heading to Columbus, OH, to attend a farewell party for two great folks – Megan and Jim Fox. Lots of pics to come soon, the bulk of which will be drunken writers with a cookout theme. :D As I woke up, I heard the sound of someone…

Artful Dodger

After dinner, we decided to have a few more beers and headed to the Artful Dodger. A nice place, fairly quiet, dark, low key… and great, if you’re there before it gets too packed. There’s a dance floor in the back, which I’ve never seen and probably never will see. Not a big dancer, me. Here’s a shot of the…

Dinner with Chelsea

We went to Blue Fin, had a beer with dinner, and got caught up on current events between the two of us. All day, I was a bit apprehensive, and a bit excited. It felt good to see Chelsea again, and tonight felt like a positive step towards us becoming friends again. The sushi was kinda crappy, so I doubt…

I’m Turning Into a Content Whore

In the misguided attempt to provide you, dear reader, constant entertainment and information… I’ve resorted to snapping pictures from my car, while driving. That’s right – I’m risking life and limb to bring you the most pure "snapshot" of what I’m seeing, as I’m seeing it, diesel fumes and all. This is me, heading Southwest on the Kennedy, looking to…

Life is Good

I’m sitting in my shorts, no shirt, the windows are wide open and it’s a cool 70 degrees outside. A slight breeze is coming in through the windows, cooling off what has been the sauna of my apartment. I’m two beers into the night, on an empty stomach, chatting with Juliet on Yahoo! and updating my blog. For the past…

Dinner with Chelsea

Tomorrow, Chelsea and I are going out for sushi. I’m looking forward to the meal, and to seeing her again. It’s been a long, long time since we’ve hung out, and that’s been primarily my fault. I’ve been avoiding her, and isolating myself a great deal. I hope the past few days are an indication that I’m more comfortable with…
