shameless whining: first post of 2004

So I haven't posted in awhile. It's not like anything of any importance has gone on. Here's a quick update:

Jan week 1: traveled to the very very cold state of michigan to visit mother on the eve of her open-heart surgery to remove rare heart tumor. the surgery was successful, my attempts to scare her a-hole husband into running far far away, not-so-successful.

Jan week 2: return to work after 2.5 weeks of off-time. It was supposed to be slower after the new year. it's not. See "Japanese Story" with friend and exchange xmas gifts, because I was too much of a slacker to meet with him as planned on xmas day. I scored a bevy of cool gifts, among them: david sedaris: live at carnegie hall, lord of the flies anniversary edition, edward scissorhands, and david cross: let america laugh (alas, I already had the latest).

Jan week 3: Another week of work flies by, by Friday my throat has started to hurt. Drag myself to the zoo with lil' bro - no gorillas or orangutans - I feel jipped.

Jan week 4: Ugh - I'm so sick! Lose 1.5 days of work to very painful throat and persistent cough which only serves to exacerbate raw throat. Doctor insists it's a virus, although I have my reservations. Landlords on Thurdsay had meeting with city to determine if long-unknown code violations on my converted-garage will go un-punished, or if they will be forced to evict me. It's now Friday, they haven't called. I'm ambivalent. I should be sleeping right now.

Found a cool site: Eat Your Vegetables. Cool because a) seems to agree with me on social and political issues (always a plus), b) utilizies a radiohead song as an entry title, c) supports howard dean (at least for now), and d) has been close enough to photograph janeane garofalo with his significant other. yee haw.

okay, i'm going to sleep right now.

things people have said

i was going to say how cool looking your site is, but then you gave my site a big plug at the end of this post and so i thought it would seem like i was just saying something nice to you since you said something nice to me.

screw it.

i like your site. very cool looking.
