Memorial Day BBQlicious

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006 · Comments Off on Memorial Day BBQlicious

After four days of non-stop action, it’s going to take at least a couple days to rest up… before we do it again this weekend. The past weekend started with cocktails and a Crossgates showing of X-Men 3: The Last Stand with Jen and Alex. It’s always entertaining seeing movies on opening night — and […]

Outside Painting

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006 · Comments Off on Outside Painting

It’s been an exhausting past week. We had the entire outside of the house painted all last week (to go with the inside), with finishing touches going on this week. It might not sound tiring since we didn’t do the painting ourselves, but with trying to work and having the dogs barking every time a […]

World Flattening

Thursday, May 25th, 2006 · Comments Off on World Flattening

I recently started reading The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman. I’m only about 100 pages into it so far, but it’s a great page-turner — especially for someone like me who loves technology so much and remembers being on AOL back before the dawn of the Internet in 1993 when the first Mac and […]

Fun Frames

Wednesday, May 24th, 2006 · Comments Off on Fun Frames

I’ve had my current camera phone for more than 2 years and have uploaded more than 500 photos in that time, yet I never knew the joy of fun frames until Monday night while I was watching the season finale of 24 and Jen was bored. She stumbled upon this endlessly entertaining feature of the […]

Washington, DC Trip

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2006 · 3 Comments

Friday through Sunday I joined Jen for her work trip to our nation’s capital. The first time I had been was nearly a year ago, following Frances and Andrew’s wedding. Enoch was in town from San Francisco, so we met up with him, his sister Jan, and Maria for drinks in Georgetown along the Potomac. […]

Week(end) Recap

Thursday, May 18th, 2006 · Comments Off on Week(end) Recap

Lately it seems to be taking me until mid-week to write about the weekend that’s just passed, but better later than never. And now it’s Thursday, although I actually started this post yesterday, but then got distracted by posting Mullet Gabe online. After about two weeks of rain — not good for the outside painting […]

Mullet Gabe

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006 · 3 Comments

As anyone who’s been to our house recently knows, we keep this gem prominently displayed on our fridge. Now I’m proud to share the mullet with the world: I’m not sure about the year — maybe my mom or dad knows — but the back of the photo does say “Nana‘s b-day,” so it would […]

Best Music Video Ever

Saturday, May 13th, 2006 · 1 Comment

If you haven’t already seen the best music video ever (I Wanna Love You Tender), please do yourself a favor and take a few minutes to watch it. You won’t be sorry. (Thanks, Justin, for the link.)

Bring Trader Joe’s to Saratoga Springs

Saturday, May 13th, 2006 · 4 Comments

Back in February I wrote about my ideas for what should be done with the proposed $100 million High Rock Redevelopment — bring a Trader Joe’s and an independent movie theater — and later that month even had a letter on the topic published in the Saratogian. As it turns out, I’m not the only […]

The $6 Gallon

Thursday, May 11th, 2006 · 1 Comment

Pretty much in line with how I feel: / Bring On The $6 Gallon Of Gas / It would revolutionize America. It would make us all better humans. But could you handle it?: Here’s what we could do: Give gas discounts to cab drivers (at least initially) and metro transit systems and low-income folks, […]
