Santa Barbara

Friday, August 22nd, 2003 · Comments Off on Santa Barbara

Jen and I leave early this afternoon to begin our long (4- to 6-hour) drive down the coast to Santa Barbara. I’m really looking forward to it. I love road trips, and it will be the first extended drive (San Francisco to Lake Tahoe notwithstanding) I will have done since buying the Scoob last May. […]

Thursday, August 21st, 2003 · 4 Comments

Target: The Westin St. Francis Last night Jen, Jess, Ben, Enoch, and I participated in San Francisco Flash Mob #3, organized by the mysterious folks behind the The Mob Project. It was our first. And it was great fun. It went a little something like this… After reading the August 11, 2003 coverage in the […]

We’ve spent the last several weeks sifting through oodles of photos from various sources and are happy to officially announce the site today. Even though it […]

Last night at Nickie’s on Haight Street… View slideshow on Ofoto Kat’s 30 or so closest friends gathered for a night of bass thumpin’, Guinness drinkin’, and booty shakin’ at Nickie’s on Haight St. We had lots of fun with this photo shoot.

PowerBook G4 Deals

Wednesday, August 20th, 2003 · 1 Comment

As I wrote on Monday, I had narrowed down my choice in a new Mac either to an iBook or a PowerBook G4. After tons of great input (thank you!), the choice is obvious: PowerBook G4. But the bummer now is that the 12″ refurbs on the Apple store that were going for $1399 just […]

PowerBook G4 vs. iBook

Monday, August 18th, 2003 · 19 Comments

Within the next few weeks, Jen and I plan to begin production of my Dad’s next book, a new version of 100 Faces of Marin. I am a Mac man at heart (and logged 4 years doing tech support and sales in the Apple Computer Store at Vassar), so I’m thrilled that this project gives […]

Hazy Reflections

Monday, August 18th, 2003 · 2 Comments

I woke up from my very deep sleep sometime around 5am this morning. I walked down the hall to the bathroom, then climbed back into bed. Two more hours to sleep. I didn’t fall back asleep right away. Strange, considering the whirlwind, action-packed weekend we had. Jen also woke up around the same time. When […]

Horror Movies

Friday, August 15th, 2003 · 4 Comments

They entertain us. They terrify us. Sometimes they’re so bad or silly they make us laugh. Our culture is strangely drawn to the phenomenon of horror flicks (as if the world isn’t a scary enough place on its own). What is it about this genre that attracts us? There’s the unbelivable story, the mystery, the […]

Power Outage

Thursday, August 14th, 2003 · 4 Comments

I have two thoughts about today’s widespread power outage that crippled the entire eastern United States and parts of Canada: Why must every major event that happens these days be immediately followed by “But wait, it’s not terrorism!”??? Or, as the NYTimes put it: “No Initial Sign of Terrorism, Officials Say.” It’s just a power […]

Honeymoon Entries

Wednesday, August 13th, 2003 · Comments Off on Honeymoon Entries

I wrote these entries in my notebook while in Hawaii for the honeymoon: Honeymoon Reflections #1 (7.29.2003) Honeymoon Reflections #2 (8.2.2003) Life was pretty chill on the Big Island, so not a tremendous amount to report, but memories nonetheless.
