A Lot Has Happened…

Hello, dear readers. I haven’t been around much because, go and figure, Things Got Worse. I’ll be using this as my platform in the upcoming months to go through much of this stuff. Hopefully, you’ll get something out of it. There will probably be a number of you that I alienate or who will think […]

To All The People I Drunk Text Last Night…

…I lied. I wasn’t really drunk. Well, I was buzzing. I still have a really high tolerance to alcohol. REALLY high. My friends Andrew, Mika and I went out last night, April 3rd, and I absolutely needed to go out for some drinks. Unbeknownst to Andrew I needed something to cut the edge off all […]

Last Night I Finally Fell Asleep Smiling

Today is the first day in a long while where I’ve been able to write. Why? I have time to burn as I take the train to work. My last two excursions driving into DC were excruciating exercises in anger management mixed with bouts of serenading my fellow traffic jam brethren with my renditions of […]

The Results Are In: F* January

I’m going to give the tl;dr (too long; didn’t read) first for everyone before I get into this post so that if you want to stop reading you’ll at least get the gist of what I’m going through. So far, the month of January – spanning the past decade or so – has decidedly delivered […]

One Lonely Journey Towards Responsible Drinking

I enjoy alcoholic beverages. A lot. In fact, you could say that I love to drink. And when I say ‘love to drink’ that should be read in capital, bold letters like “L-O-V-E to drink”. But I also have had to recently dig deep within myself and admit that I had a drinking problem. Before […]

This is my morning.

I’m writing this here to document what my mornings are like. Why? I don’t want to forget. This has been my routine, for the better part of the past decade. There are a few variations over the years (vacations, roster of pets, trips to the gym) but for the most part this has been my […]

Let’s try this again.

2014 has rolled around and I, for one, was completely ill prepared for it. Time is rushing by just like…um…some really trite metaphor for the quick passage of time. Hmmm. I think you can see why I haven’t updated this site for a while. My creative juices have evaporated to the point where all that’s […]

I Cried All The Way Home

By reading the title of this post one would think that I’m one of this little piggies but, alas, I am not. Let me also preface this post by stating that Angela and I have two completely different views of making things public. While she is more reserved and private I’m willing to let people […]

Happy Birthday, Farley!

My best friend is also the closest thing to being my son. It’s my dog, Farley. Today he celebrates his 15th birthday. Some people would equate that to being approximately 105 human years but he’ll always simply be a puppy to me. If I was still in contact with my ex-wife (and if she didn’t […]

A Peanut Butter ‘n ‘Nana Sammich

The other day Angela and I were about to bound into IHOP when we realized that there was no way in Hell that we were going to wait for 30 minutes for some pancakes. Instead of hanging out with the mass of people gathering at the door we decided that we’d try something different by […]

We’re On A Train To Nowhere

Many of my friends have questioned my sanity when I took a new job in downtown DC again. I mean, sure, I could have kept driving to Rockville and took advantage of the occasional 2 hour drive home to catch up on my zen meditation but the magic and allure of traveling into the city […]

Look! I’m Typing!

Redesign. Renewed interest in my blog. The ability to amuse myself and offend my wife. All these things are happening. Since I’ve started working downtown I’ve found that to have a few good minutes that I can waste while on the train. What better way to pretend that I’m productive than disguising myself as a […]
