Saratoga Springs

Friday, October 31st, 2003 · 2 Comments

During the past few weeks or so since Jen and I have decided to move to Saratoga Springs, NY, we’ve been met with one of two reactions (appreciated disappointment from friends and family aside): “That’s great!” or “Huh? That’s random.” A very telling fact is that we’ve so far heard nothing negative about the place. […]

National Moving Company

Friday, October 31st, 2003 · 2 Comments

Jen and I learned this week that the couple who looked at our apartment last weekend has signed a new lease starting January 1. (Our lease was set to end January 31.) What this means is that we get to move to Saratoga Springs at the end of December. This is both exciting and nerve-racking, […]

Thursday, October 30th, 2003 · Comments Off on Tucson

I’m back home after several days in the desert with my bro, Peter. For a Web junkie like me, it was weird being away from the Internet for a few days. I could’ve gone on campus to check my email, etc. but it’s also a nice feeling to be disconnected for a while. So I’m […]

Namco TV Games

Saturday, October 25th, 2003 · 1 Comment

Yesterday while being the house husband and running errands at Costco and Bed Bath & Beyond, I stumbled across what’s got to be the coolest new toy of the year: Namco TV Games. See Jen holding that little box in the photo? That’s Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Bosconian, Galaxian, and Rally-X all in one. That’s the […]

Runaway Jury

Thursday, October 23rd, 2003 · Comments Off on Runaway Jury

How many times have you gone to the movies and felt like you actually knew the actors? Sure, we all have our favorite actors and governators, and seeing someone famous on the streets or in the bowling alley always elicits this weird feeling of semi-knowing. When Jen and I ran into Nick Cage in a […]

Advice Ignored

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2003 · Comments Off on Advice Ignored

OK, so I know this is already all over the Web, but it’s the first I’ve seen it, so I’m posting it here (thanks, Suzanne, for passing along). George H.W. Bush and Brent Scowcroft wrote the following (page 489) in “A World Transformed,” Bush Sr.’s biography: “Trying to eliminate Saddam, extending the ground war into […]

Vassar Porn

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2003 · Comments Off on Vassar Porn

Yes, I went to Vassar. No, I can’t admit to having engaged in any pornographic filming or ventures while a student there (although the opportunity was surely present). While reviewing some of the referrers to my site yesterday, I came across a Google search that suggests otherwise: vassar porn. Vassar was a wild place and […]

Big Move

Monday, October 20th, 2003 · 5 Comments

Jen and I are relocating to the East Coast. This is something we had been talking about doing prior to my being laid off. After learning on October 1 that I was losing my job, we began to seriously consider the idea. The decision was not easy. We love San Francisco. Leaving this city will […]
