Time Off

Saturday, June 28th, 2003 · Comments Off on Time Off

Today is Day 1 of 9 days off work! Woohoo! My company is closed for a mandatory vacation all next week. So Monday and Tuesday I’ll be chillin’ around home — working on Larry’s Web site, taking my car to get an alignment, picking up new glasses, playing with the new camcorder when it arrives […]

Sony TRV22

Saturday, June 28th, 2003 · 2 Comments

After much deliberation going back to May 10, 2003, I finally decided to purchase the Sony DCR-TRV22 MiniDV camcorder! Woohoo! From a field that started with 5 camcorders randomly selected from Amazon, I narrowed it down to the TRV19 and the TRV22. With tons of help from the great discussion boards on, I found […]

Supah Hot

Thursday, June 26th, 2003 · Comments Off on Supah Hot

Here in San Francisco we’re spoiled by the weather — a cool 50 to 70 or so year-round. So when the thermometer rises above 70 and pushes to 80 and beyond, San Franciscans barely know what to do — so we sit around in our boxers, drink ice water, and walk our dogs in the […]

Hope After All?

Thursday, June 26th, 2003 · Comments Off on Hope After All?

The Guardian: “The Supreme Court struck down a ban on gay sex Thursday, ruling that the law was an unconstitutional violation of privacy. The 6-3 ruling reverses course from a ruling 17 years ago that states could punish homosexuals for what such laws historically called deviant sex.” It’s about time Texas and the rest of […]

New Clutch

Wednesday, June 25th, 2003 · Comments Off on New Clutch

With 19,866 miles on the odometer, the Scoob has a brand spankin’ new clutch as of today. And wow, what a difference a clutch makes! The old one had this morning jitters problem wherein the car would jerk when starting in 1st some mornings. It wasn’t all the time, but enough to annoy the hell […]

Google Demotion

Wednesday, June 25th, 2003 · 4 Comments

I used to be on the first page of results in a Google search for gabe. I noticed today that that seems to have changed. Now I don’t show up until the 7th page of results. I’m not sure why. I recently changed all my title tags from “ [content]” to “Gabe dot com: [content].” […]

Wheel Alignment

Tuesday, June 24th, 2003 · Comments Off on Wheel Alignment

I breathed a sigh of relief this morning after I avoided nearly getting ripped off by the dealer from which I bought my WRX and where I go for regular maintenance. It’s there today getting the clutch replaced — and there through tomorrow I recently learned (grr…gotta roll the ghetto Buick Century till then) — […]

Back from Vegas

Monday, June 23rd, 2003 · Comments Off on Back from Vegas

We returned from an awesome weekend in Vegas last night (this morning) at about 3am. We got just 4 hours of sleep and went to work today. I feel so tired I’m nearly oblivious and like I was fighting off a cold today; I’m hoping a good night’s sleep will turn me right around. But […]
