Good Excuse For No Post Today

July 30, 2009

Ok, so I totally had a bigtime blog post planned for today, but I live in New Jersey.  Seeing as how I don’t have a tv, crappy tribal tattoos, or some sort of non-natural tan, I’m required by the culture to deal with certain amounts of drama from time to time.  All in all, I […]

Unfounded Feeling

July 30, 2009

Hm.  I haven’t been procrastinating this blog post, but it’s been happening.  I’m having kind of a low self-esteem moment – which sucks, because I really don’t feel much like whining about it.  Especially because I know it’s a rather baseless feeling and that I’ll be fine in the morning.  I suppose it’s partly a […]

July 29, 2009

I can think of probably fifteen different things to blog about tonight, but only about two sentences for each.  I suppose, therefore, that you’ll have to pardon any disjointedness that may follow, dear reader. Remember last Wednesday’s post?  The Weekly Writing Assignment (#1)?  Well check out who happens to be one of this week’s finalists:  […]

Summertime Something-or-Others

July 28, 2009

Yay summertime.  On Sunday, I put shorts on for the first time this summer.  It’s been pretty sticky-humid here in the Garden State over the past few days or so.  I really don’t feel like being at work – come to think of it, I really don’t feel like doing much of anything lately.  I […]

Take it Easy, Don

July 27, 2009

Hm.  So it’s Monday again.  I’m not really sure where the weekend went, but I’m pretty sure I found it relaxing.  I spent a lot of it outside the Ridgewood Starbucks, drinking coffee and reading and talking to friends.  My friend Don passed away this weekend of a sudden heart attack at the age of 57.  […]

Today’s Hike: 7-25-2009

July 25, 2009

I puked my guts out on Thursday night.  I have no idea why, though I suppose it must have been the pizza I had eaten a few hours before.  I hadn’t had a chance to put a blog post together, and I sure as heck wasn’t feeling like it afterward.  I went right to bed.  […]

Things to be Fixed

July 23, 2009

I’m getting squirrelly about the netbook thing.  Sort of.  Four Franklins may be pushing it for my finances right now – though I do have a credit card that can handle it, and one can’t build (good) credit without using it, correct?  It looks like fixing my car will cost me a bit over eight […]

Weekly Writing Assignment #1: Random Words

July 22, 2009

The old Californian reached down to adjust the fetters binding his ankles shuffle-length apart, no longer wishing for the strength to break them.  Hocking phlegm from the back of his throat he spat on the dusty California ground, in the direction of the bravado of his youth, chained to him three men up the line.  […]

General Update

July 21, 2009

I’m absolutely sure that I had something good to write about this afternoon.  And, as I seem to be wont to do, I’ve totally forgotten what it was. What a relatively uneventful but great weekend I had.  Climbed a mountain on Saturday, got up early and ran all myerrands on Sunday; I even managed to get my […]

Book Review: Way of the Peaceful Warrior

July 19, 2009

Today’s hike was a good one.  Jack said it was “pretty easy”, then promptly fell asleep in the car for half an hour.  On the way back we stopped at the Rosendale street festival to see our friends Johnny and Nicole.  It was pretty interesting.  I checked out some of Johnny’s art and bought some […]
