My brother and his wife were away for Christmas, so we celebrated last night. We opened presents and had lasagna at my brother’s house. It was fun, but next year I’d rather have it at my parents’ house so that we don’t have to haul all the presents to my brother’s house and back. That […]

I just wanna go home.

I got let out of work at Noon on Christmas Eve, filled my car’s tank, and drove up to Maine non-stop. I got to my parents’ house at about 2:15pm…just as my father was about to go see his mother. I said I’d go along as soon as I brought my stuff inside. …but then […]

Last weekend…

So anyway…about last weekend… I picked up sagechan at the airport and we headed back to my place. We watched This is Otakudom and Bridge to the Future and played a few games. The next day was very wet and rainy. We went to Kelly’s Roast Beef for lunch and stuffed ourselves so incredibly full […]

Monster stuff

I’ve been meaning to write about this past weekend before writing any new stuff…but I guess I can throw in these Monster tid-bits: E-mail me if you got your job through Monster. The company is looking for success stories (particularly in their “skilled and hourly” Cincinatti test market). They’ll want to post it on the […]
