Santa Barbara Wedding

Saturday, August 30th, 2003 · Comments Off on Santa Barbara Wedding

Last weekend Jen and I drove down to Santa Barbara to attend the wedding of Anne and Max. We had a great time. The service in the Old Mission was beautiful and the reception was tons of fun, partying and dancing the night away with Jen’s coworkers. We even partied with the groom’s mom at […]

MT Random Entries

Friday, August 29th, 2003 · 19 Comments

After using David Raynes’ MTRandomEntries plugin for about a day, I decided I wanted a truly dynamic randomly-generated list of blog entries (especially now that I have more than 700 archives from which to draw). I also wanted to be able to include the list throughout my site, and not just in my blog, which […]

Diva Fantasies

Friday, August 29th, 2003 · Comments Off on Diva Fantasies

With upfront apologies and credit to Dan, I am now going to write about the same things he did today While Jen, my Dad, and I played Scrabble as we watched CSI last night, little did I know about the hot diva action happening over on the 20th Annual MTV Music Awards. ThisisLondon: “In front […]

Magic Management Necklace

Friday, August 29th, 2003 · Comments Off on Magic Management Necklace

Ahh… the brilliance… the simplicity… if only we all had one of these for our superiors. Just think how productive we’d be. I have to rely on my good ol’ Corporate Online University rearview stick-on monitor mirror to keep me busy.

Rallying Behind Dean

Thursday, August 28th, 2003 · 2 Comments

From A Case Against the Case Against the Case For Howard Dean: Can We All Stop This Madness? on Common Dreams: “Can you accurately imagine the disaster of Dubya having four years to operate without fear of reelection. He could do virtually anything he wanted. Heck, he could create laws that allow him to spy […]

West Portal

Thursday, August 28th, 2003 · Comments Off on West Portal

Last night after dinner Jen and I took a spontaneous drive to West Portal — about a mile-and-a-half south of where we live — to check out a super-cool corner house for sale under probate. The asking price of $499,000 seems like a steal and I’m sure sold for way above that yesterday when bids […]

Seen last month in a Bed Bath and Beyond parking lot in San Francisco: I think some people are just begging to be pulled over. With a license plate like that, how could you ever speed or draw any attention to yourself?

TypePad Import

Tuesday, August 26th, 2003 · Comments Off on TypePad Import

Since the TypePad beta has come to an end, I decided it was time to transfer the handful of posts from my TypePad Blog into this one. My TypePad blog is still online as of today, but since I’m not going to subscribe to the service, who knows how long it will be. The service […]

Mary Carey for Governor

Tuesday, August 26th, 2003 · Comments Off on Mary Carey for Governor

Only in California could there be a porn star running for governor. If you donate $5,000 to her campaign, she’ll go on a dinner date with you. Sure, if what you want is a hot date and some sex, you could get a hooker for less than that (as James duly noted last night), but […]

Good Stella

Friday, August 22nd, 2003 · 3 Comments

I’m so proud of my babydog: Common Dreams: “I’m actually quite astounded that he (Bush) showed up,” said Stella A_nderson, 32, of Portland, an anti-Bush demonstrator. “I think that he would have avoided Portland altogether if we had done our job right the first time.” While I was at work yesterday, Stella must’ve snuck up […]
