Setting myself on fire

On top of all of the crap going on in my personal life, I also got a call a few days ago from the SVP that started out with “So, they’re eliminating your role before 2011…”. I shouldn’t be stressed by it, as I know damned well that they are still going through the corporate […]

No Exit

It occurred to me yesterday that I really don’t like Modest Mouse. I thought I did, and quite honestly, “Float On” is a great song. It is. It’s not you, “Float On”, it’s me. However, I continue to write the names of the members of Stars in my spiral bound notebooks, and then draw hearts […]

Hi. I suck.

This entry is due to the combined efforts of Lynne, Selko and “S” (who honestly, may all be the same person hitting me from every angle) who all have inquired as to our well being since it’s been a blessed month since I last updated. Everything’s pretty great, I’m just stacked, and given that I […]


Since last we spoke, the dining room is now a deep crimson color and missing its carpeting, I’ve spent the entire month not in the pool and I’ve been to Utah and Chicago (and also Blogher, which was like a subset of Chicago in that it was also a weird little city populated by people […]

Not Dead. Not a Whore.

I owe the entire second half of the Las Vegas entry, which covers wig stores and drag queen shoe stores, three separate spas, a Vampire strip show, a crazy Tejano gay dance club, a gospel brunch combined with a peep show, serendipitous rock star accommodations, and tumbling into the airport at 4 am with Red […]

Las Vegas 2007… part 1

You don’t land in Las Vegas, rather you slap down on scorched earth, skin screeching against asphalt, blisters form and then you squint and carry on. Then the stewardess says “Welcome to Las Vegas. The temperature here is approximately one million degrees.” Off starboard, the Wynn properties glitter like toys on a collector’s shelf, the […]

Traditional pre-trip mental instability

I find that I have very little patience right now. I was staring at someone as they talked at to me at work and wanted to say “Really? Do you really think I or anyone at all cares about what your mom bought your grandchild at TJ Fucking Maxx?” But perhaps I am too harsh. […]

Semester’s over, let the partying begin

Blergh, how did so many days pass by? How? I ask this of you. The good news: I finished that paper and also, did pretty well during the presentation. We had ten minutes to present, which meant that the early people took upwards of 45 minutes (I am not making that up) for their own […]

In a New York Minute Part II

On Saturday morning, I overslept, a drastic difference in the previous night, in which I had woken every hour on the hour to make sure that I hadn’t overslept. I also think the nighttime cold medicine I had taken before bed may have had something to do with it. I hopped into the shower and […]

Can I borrow your Dick’s for five minutes?

I am once again in Shermer Illinois. Y’all got a lot of geese here, man. Seriously. What’s with the geese? Already there are two marked differences between this trip and last trip. First of all, I’m staying in a hotel with free wireless internet. It’s closer to my office (and also Starbucks) and still gives […]
