Where’s the Snow?

Thursday, November 30th, 2006 · No Comments

Here it is November 30 in the Northeast and the forecast says it’s going to be 66 degrees here in Saratoga Springs today. What the hell? Oh right, global warming. Speaking of which, my copy of an Inconvenient Truth shipped yesterday from Netflix, so I’m really excited to see that. Regardless, every day I’ve been […]

Galactic Bowling

Sunday, November 26th, 2006 · 1 Comment

Saturday, November 11 brought us to the bowling alley for some rockin’ late-night galactic bowling. We had two lanes, lots of Genny Creme Ale, and tons of fun. The first game was a free-for-all wherein Eric got the highest overall score and I got the number two high score. In the second game we played […]

Blog Migration Complete

Sunday, November 26th, 2006 · No Comments

Even though it was a pain in the ass, I think I’ve successfully migrated all my published archives from my old blog to the new domain. Dealing with my 101 Movable Type entries in draft status was a big pain since WordPress has a hard time handling entries in draft — it won’t display them […]

Jami’s Birthday Dinner

Friday, November 24th, 2006 · No Comments

Jami’s birthday dinner at Forno Toscano was on Monday, November 6 (damn I’m behind!). Hugh organized a great surprise get together for his wife following that Saturday night’s pub crawl. Although we were originally positioned at the far end of the main dining room at Forno, we gradually took over the large center table since […]

Borat Opening Night

Friday, November 24th, 2006 · No Comments

So I moved to this new blog all motivated to post more regularly, and here it’s now been a week since my last post and I already have a huge backlog of stuff to blog about. But it’s all in my head and in my flickr account, so hopefully I’ll catch up soon. Yesterday was […]

Murder on West Ave?

Friday, November 17th, 2006 · 1 Comment

I hate to use the Fox News approach to their sorry excuse for journalism (the question mark in the headline), but hey, Blog Master G ain’t no professional journalist (did I really just say “ain’t,” too?). Anyway, last night on the way to the monthly Saratoga Chamber Mixer with Sarah and Justin, we drove past […]

Gay Penguins

Friday, November 17th, 2006 · No Comments

Watch out, America! The gay penguins have arrived. Grab your children and hide them in the nearest closest. But whatever you do, don’t let them read the true story of the two male penguins in a New York City zoo who lovingly adopted and raised a child penguin on their own. ’cause you know, it’s […]

Jami & Alexis B-Day Pub Crawl

Sunday, November 12th, 2006 · 1 Comment

If you’re a member of the Saratoga Party Posse, you know that we know how to party — the standing record is the 18 hours that Jen, Alex, Cati, Celia, and I clocked in for Travers 2006 (many of you were also there for other phases of the day and night, of course, but we […]

Victory in Congress

Thursday, November 9th, 2006 · No Comments

We now officially control Congress since the racist bastard Sen. George Allen has just officially conceded in the close race for his Virginia Senate seat (and, ironically, began his concession speech by thanking God — whatever happened to separation of church and state?). I’m also very excited to see that Speaker of the House to […]

SF Says: Impeach Bush & Cheney

Thursday, November 9th, 2006 · 1 Comment

How awesome is San Francisco? Sometimes I really miss living there, especially when I see election results like this: The people just don’t take any shit and take matters into their own hands. Sick of Bush and Cheney? Throw a proposition on the ballot to have them impeached! And then win with 59.4% of the […]
