Tickle In My Throat Still

Being sick sucks big time. I don’t even feel bad. There’s just this tickle from the dreaded sinus drain that keeps making me cough. I hate it. A lot. And when I lie down, it’s brutal. I had a great dinner with Steph tonight. She’s an ex-employee — the only one I’m actually friends with […]

Monster The Book Review. People From Texas

I like my pharmacist. I went to pick up my refill last night at Walgreens. He wrote me a note with a little happy face on it. I smiled. When was the last time your pharmacist made you smile? Yay Vinay! Everyone has a friend who’s gone off the deep end over the wrong sports […]

Eleventh Grade Burns: The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod (Book IV)

A bit about foreign policies before my regular post. I read The Economist magazine (along with Time, Newsweek, Aviation Week, Rolling Stone, and Entertainment Weekly among others) because I like to read and to be informed about various topics. This one just intrigued me. In India a local non-governmental organisation has invented a new sort […]

Weekend Update (Slightly Late)

I saw the Pro Bowl Sunday. Let me tell you how fun it was. ….. Well, there ya’ go. It was an experience that doesn’t come around very often, so I felt obligated to try it once. The tickets were relatively inexpensive, my seats were good, and I wanted to see what it was about. […]

Apple and stuff that’s way more interesting

I am an Apple fan and have been for a long, long time. So I wish to say I am quite disappointed in today’s Apple announcements. Seriously anti-climactic if you ask me. There was much anticipation and it was followed by much boredom. Far more interesting today 9-9-09 was the Beatles release of their entire […]

The Way Of Shadows (Book One, Review) by Brent Weeks

As I said, I was reading a book Evan recommended to me. I’ve finished volume one which weighs in at a hefty 670 pages of pretty small type. I had to use reading glasses and that made me feel old. I never read something Evan recommended before, so this was a bit of a risk. […]

Movie and Book Review

I have a few days worth of updates. Saturday was a busy day. Woke up and after tending to some medical business, I worked my way over to Erin’s. We ate breakfast, walked around CompUSA and Borders before I totally ran out of gas. We went back to her place and watched Flash Gordon on […]

Mind The Gap: Book Review

I am reading (still) and have pounded out another book. This one is Mind The Gap by Christopher Golden and Tim Lebborn is set in London. I picked it up last year sometime, but never quite got to it. Now that I am making an effort to spend less time on-line and more time reading […]

Bruno, Books, and Stitches

I visited Erin yesterday, we went to Stevie B’s for lunch, then we went and saw Bruno (same idea as Borat). It was really, really funny. But both Erin and I agreed it had too much dick. This movie was a vertibale pickle fest. Bouncing penises are not funny. But many of the jokes were. […]

Chronicles of Vladimir Tod: Tenth Grade Bleeds

I bought and read the third tome in this excellent series today. Each book is better than the one before it and this book makes author Heather Brewer three for three. The new book has my least favourite cover but it’s the best of the three, so I’ll forgive the irritatingly pouty cover. We have […]
