4th Anniversary

Thursday, July 26th, 2007 · 2 Comments

A very happy 4th wedding anniversary to my hot wife forever! On July 4th this year we celebrated 8 years as a couple. And we met 10 years ago in 1997 — as fellow Vassar English students and Miscellany News editors. It’s been an incredible ride and each year just seems to get better. As […]

Shakespeare & the Magical Mystery Tour

Wednesday, July 25th, 2007 · 6 Comments

I love Saratoga Springs. It’s not in every town where you can go from basking in the beautiful sunshine watching Shakespeare in the park (Much Ado About Nothing) like it’s 1599 to enjoying some drinks downtown before finding yourself on a giant tour bus driving from one bar to another around the corner, vis-a-vis a […]

Brewery & DeLorean

Saturday, July 21st, 2007 · 1 Comment

The Olde Saratoga Brewery — location of my awesome 30th birthday party — is the best kept secret in town. Not only is the beer really damn good (and strong), but you can hang out there all night and spend a whopping 10 bucks. Since it’s technically a tasting room and not a bar, you […]

Thursday night Jen made from scratch a most delicious peach cobbler. The peaches came from Kinderhook. We’ve been enjoying it all week. Mmm mmm good!

On July 11 Jen and I were in the office when out the window I looked to see a most beautiful sunset. Jen ran outside to capture some amazing shots:

European Travel BBQ

Friday, July 20th, 2007 · No Comments

Wednesday night we had Sarah and Eric over for a fajita BBQ dinner — delicious grilled chicken and portobello with all kinds of goodies like peppers, guacamole, sour cream, and hot sauce. Sarah and Eric were just back from their two-week European vacation to France and Italy, so we wanted to hear all about it […]

Monday Night Swimming

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Ahh, to have friends with a swimming pool. Monday night Justin and I both cruised over to Seth and Niki’s place for a sunny evening of BBQ, swimming, and rockin’ the night away. (Jen was chillin’ down in Kinderhook & Valatie once again, so unfortunately, she didn’t join us.) There’s nothing like enjoying a hot […]

“3, 2, 1… Jack Off!”

Monday, July 16th, 2007 · No Comments

No, it’s not the porno version of the educational program many of us grew up with in the ’80s, 3-2-1 Contact. Rather, “3, 2, 1… Jack Off!” was the agreed upon battle call we (Jen) developed yesterday afternoon at Tom and Anne’s place as we gathered, along with Alex and Cati, for a great day […]

Meet Sylvia

Sunday, July 15th, 2007 · No Comments

Yesterday we cruised down to Valatie (the next village over from Kinderhook) for an evening BBQ at Karen’s parents’ place to meet Karen and Joti’s new baby (now 2 months old), Sylvia. She’s really cute, sporting Karen’s eyes and Joti’s hair. Newborns always make Jen cry. I think Jen looks great holding babies (no, I’m […]

BBQ Photo Fun

Saturday, July 14th, 2007 · No Comments

Last night Anne, Tom, and Justin joined us for some great summer grillin’, gamin’, and goofin’ (OK, that’s a cheesy sentence, I know, but hey, it fits). We enjoyed a plethora of tasty summer dishes — broccoli, turkey burgers, fake chicken patties, coleslaw, homemade cornbread, multiple pasta salads, and even Jen’s homemade chocolate chip cookies […]
