Geni Family Tree

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007 · 1 Comment

I’ve always wanted to map out my family tree, but have never found a good way to do it. Until yesterday when I read about Geni on TechCrunch. Geni rules. I signed up yesterday and added my wife, my immediate family, a good part of my extended family, and my in-laws. And this morning, my [...]

Really Feeling 30

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007 · No Comments

I went running yesterday afternoon for the first time in way too long. And for the first time ever, I know what it feels like to have a 30-year-old body. Sure, I’ve been 30 for nearly two months now, but I haven’t really done anything that has made me feel that I’m 30. Wheezing. Aching [...]

Ode to Diego

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007 · 2 Comments

Yesterday the animal world lost a great friend: Diego Chandler. For his short life, he touched many lives. He was so loving, so silky-soft, and so full of energy and curiosity about the world. He loved to ride around on Hugh’s shoulders (and even mine once or twice). Hugh and Jami adopted Diego just six [...]

Old School Photos

Saturday, May 19th, 2007 · 1 Comment

My Dad emailed me this random series of photos of me, Pete, and himself shortly after Christmas 2006, and they’ve been sitting in my Gmail inbox since then. Since I’m determined to clear out the 200 or so emails in my inbox today, I finally got around to downloading them to my computer, and figured [...]

California Whales

Friday, May 18th, 2007 · No Comments

Back in 2001 when I was between jobs, Stella and I made the most of it by frolicking on the beach at Crissy Field in San Francisco nearly every day after we took Jen to work. It was awesome and the best three months of unemployment ever. We lived in a beautiful city and I [...]

Larry’s Bachelor Party in Vegas

Sunday, May 13th, 2007 · No Comments

I spent last weekend in Las Vegas, the city with which I have a love-hate relationship — always a good time, but so much debauchery. This was my fourth visit to Sin City, and this time it was for Larry’s bachelor party. Pete joined me, Larry, Shrey, Andrew, and Philip for the non-stop festivities, so [...]

Sunglasses Lost & Found

Sunday, May 13th, 2007 · No Comments

I learned a good lesson today: If you lose something at a restaurant or bar, don’t expect to get it back unless you return in person to ask for it. Friday night we had a super-fun, rockin’ all-night happy hour, which began with dinner at Sushi Thai Garden. Along with me and Jen, fellow sushi [...]

UPH Photo Spread Letter to Editor

Tuesday, May 1st, 2007 · 1 Comment

Since The Saratogian never seems to publish any letters that contain any ounce of criticism, I will publish my latest letter here. I sent this letter on April 23. Today is May 1 and it’s still yet to be published. At this point, I doubt it will. Dear Editor, Thank you for publishing the great [...]
