It snowed all day. I picked up my rental car this evening. Tomorrow morning I’m getting this trip underway come hell or high water. If I can’t cross the mountains I’ll stay the night somewhere, but my friends father who lives in western Colorado says the passes are passable. We spent the day at a […]
Lorena called me yesterday, crying. We talked for about two hours. I really miss her. This is painful. On a lighter note, I’m reading the leaflet the cute Jesus girl gave me the other day. It was printed by the simply-named Jesus Christ Baptist Church. According this leaflet, nakedness is a sin! Do they bathe? […]
I took a nice bike ride into town to have a burger and to meet with Billie the Gregarious Realtor.
It makes me shudder. A basic truth that I’ve lived with my entire life ended tonight: that the Boston Red Sox are and will always be second-place also-rans. I’ve always believed that the true curse of the Red Sox was that their fans believed in it, and when they stopped believing in the curse it […]
Well, the Yankees are pounding the crap out of the Red Sox. I feel a little better.
I enjoyed last night’s whomping of the Red Sox, and missed most of the debate as a result. Lorena hurt her back and was at the doctor today when I got called. Since I don’t speak Spanish very well I am not really sure what is going on.
The Red Sox accepted their prescribed pounding from the Yankees tonight. All is well in Yankeeland. So far.
I could scream. PBS has “The History Channel Disease”: documentaries that refer to the past in the present tense. Robert Kennedy is not campaigning in Oregon, he campaigned in Oregon. Robert Kennedy is dead. I feel a letter coming on. On a better note, I spoke with Lorena this evening. I may visit Argentina next […]
This evening I finished reading “Eats, Shoots and Leaves.” It is a book about proper punctuation. Very droll and very British. I am thinking about becoming a stickler. (Shouldn’t it be “Eat, Shoots, and Leaves?”- or should I type: shouldn’t it be “Eats, Shoots, and Leaves”? Aargh…). Going kayaking tomorrow morning. No punctuation out on […]
Today I ran some errands. “Fast Food Nation” is returned to the library and now “Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation!” is under my stewardship. I didn’t get a chance to clean out the aquarium pump, which is getting very noisy, goddammit. I saw “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow,” […]
Continued cleaning up the park today. I am more bruised, lacerated, dirty, sore, and tired than I have been at work in a long time. In fact, the last time I worked this hard was on fire detail last September. Yikes. I need to hit the gym more often. My coworker put a song into […]
Finally got out to the island today. The fort is a mess. Lots of mud. There are fish living in there now. Some of last week’s plantings survived. Anyone who’s curious about how the park is dealing with the hurricane can check the NPS Morning Report. Watched “Sylvia” on DVD. Not too bad, very slow, […]
It’s hot here again. Spent my day off running errands. I bought another watermelon, too.
