      Wow, just logged in after months and only now realized that I was FU 3 months ago! I am definitely not worthy, given my non-activity these days...but I'll take it! Love the comments from random folks. smiley0.gif

      Happy 10 years, Red vs. Blue! Here's to another 10 at least!

    • Happy Earth Day

      Hello everyone, happy Earth Day (well, almost)! In honor of tree huggers' favorite holiday, I'm encouraging everyone to donate $1 to plant a tree through American Forests. The minimum donation is $15.

      I know that some folks aren't exactly swimming in cash (believe me, I'm not either), but that doesn't mean you can't pool money with your friends or family to meet the minimum. And let's say the average cost of a beer is $5. Have one less drink this weekend and plant 5 trees! It's a small price to pay for a lot of good. I donated $1 for each of my closest friends and family members, then emailed them to let them know that there'll be a tree planted for them. Happy Earth Day!

      The sun is out and I ate lunch outside today, with a book for company: Cooked by Jeff Henderson. It's about a guy who started dealing drugs as a teen and eventually worked his way up to become a big crack dealer in San Diego. Then he got busted and spent time in prison, during which he discovered that he loved to cook. So, after he got out, he turned his life around and worked his way up again--this time, from dishwasher to chef.

      I'm about a third of the way through, and I feel like I would be able to cook cocaine into crack if I wanted to. In this first third of the book, I think I've seen the word "fuck" more times than in all the other books I've ever read, combined. Times about 100. Or maybe 1000. There's also a good sprinkling of west coast gang and drug lingo. All in all, it's very educational.

      White Stilton with blueberries is the bomb. It tastes like blueberry cheesecake ice cream made into a cheese. It's cheese...it's dessert...it's a dream come true. Where have you been all my life, my dear sweet block of heaven? *drool*

      If you like Star Wars, mockumentaries, and/or mockumentaries involving Star Wars, check out "A Great Disturbance". It follows 5 different guys to a Star Wars convention. Very funny, and one of the key players, Jeff Brancolini, is a good friend of my brother-in-law's. Jeff plays the lovable loser, the stereotypical nerd who still lives at home, has asthma, and lacks social skills. Sounds like a cliche on paper, but he plays it very well. His was by far my favorite character. The DVD is only $10, so please send them some of your hard-earned beans!

      Happy New Year, everybody! Hope you all had a fun holiday break. Brian and I drove back to Pittsburgh to hang out with his family for Christmas. I was sad that I didn't go to Hawaii this year, but we'll be there next year. It was definitely one of the most fun Christmases ever. Everybody was happy and Brian's adorable 96-year-old grampa was in fine form. The highlight was a crazy game of Yahtzee. I never knew that rolling dice could be so fun! Grampa was hamming it up and making everyone laugh--it was truly memorable.

      After we got back to Chicago, our friends Neil and Angela came to stay with us, which started the New Year's festivities. On New Year's Eve, we went out to a very nice dinner. Some of the highlights were: a rich wild mushroom risotto topped with white truffle oil; butter-poached lobster with seared scallops (the carnivores had seared filet in place of the scallops--I think the pescatarians won out there) and creamy, decadent mashed potatoes; cognac truffles; and tasty champagne. Yum! After dinner, we went to a hotel party until the wee hours of the morning, nicely toasted on the good stuff. All that fun left me with a cold. Boo hoo! This is where unemployment comes in handy--I get to stay home and recover. smiley0.gif

    • Happy post-Thanksgiving

      9 years ago

      Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving! Brian and I got back to Chicago last night after a long drive made longer because of the stupid Ohio tollbooth. It was backed up for 7 MILES. It took us an HOUR to pay the stinking $8.95 just for the privilege of driving through Ohio.

      And, might I mention, I really had to pee the whole time because there wasn't a rest stop for 50 MILES. I thought I would be okay until we got into Indiana, but I had no idea that we'd sit there for an hour. Needless to say, it was a very long hour. I was almost to the point of going in a ditch by the side of the road, but thankfully it didn't come to that. Being a guy definitely has its benefits when there's no rest stop for 50 MILES and you're in bumper-to-bumper traffic because of a stupid toll. Did I mention that there wasn't a rest stop for 50 MILES?? Can you tell that it really pissed me off (no pun intended)?

      We would've made good time if it hadn't been for that--our 8-hour trip became 9, thanks to my now-favorite state. Luckily, we managed to avoid the traffic on 90 back into Chicago due to a nice detour through the surface roads on the south side (which I can proudly say was my idea--it probably saved us at least 30 minutes). Anyway, other than that, it was a fantastic weekend, filled with family, waaay too much ono food, and not much else.

      Hello everyone, t(of)urkey day. You may or may not know that I'm not a meat eater. So, I'll be enjoying some tasty veggie gravy with my potatoes this Thanksgiving (as I have done for several Thanksgivings now). Hope it's a good one for all of you! Drive or fly safely, and remember to keep your eye on the donut, not the hole. I'm not sure what that really means, but it sounds like good advice, doesn't it?

      I have a cold. Brian often says he wonders how such loud sneezes come out of such a small person (I'm about 5'2"). The answer is: my dad. His sneezes nearly blew off the roof of our house a few times. I'm not a really good yeller, but boy can I sneeze. That's all. I'm in a weird mood today.

      That's awesome! I think I'm about to apply for a summer job at the grocery store down the street from my house. I don't have a car nor a license so I can ride my bike or walk there.

      And thanks. I already took 2 of my 8 7 finals (no final for lunch) yesterday, and now I have two more each day today, wednesday, and thursday, all of which are half days smiley0.gif !

      That's wonderful! What is it that you found?

      Mmmm...bacon *drools*

      I'm doing pretty good, too. My cold (or something) seems to have just worn off after a few days, so that's great. I have four more days of school left this year, three of which are half days because of finals (I actually have finals all four days). That means that summer is almost here!

      And forgive me if I'm not in the make-out line, because I'm about 13 years older than you and that would be so wrong.

      Just a little bit, lol.
