The Rest of Today’s Post (Post 2 of 2)

This is the non-sports related post. If you’re into sports, the entry I made earlier today will be of interest to you. Otherwise, don’t bother. First, I had mentioned I’ve got a new laptop for work. I noticed it was starting to get scratches on it from being in unfriendly environments such as backpacks, desk, […]

Avatar: The Hype vs The Reality

So I saw Avatar today with Karen, Liz, Timmy, David, Kathy, and William. Post is pretty much spoiler free. This movie has been overhyped so I was not expecting so much from it. I knew it would be visually amazing, but with a slim story. I thought it would never live up to the hype. […]

This is an Untitled Post because I couldn’t think of one

Before I begin, I have two random comments: I would much prefer to be in the UK instead of the US at any given point in time, but there is one thing that the UK doesn’t have that makes me very, very glad to be back. Water pressure when taking a shower. The UK has […]

Today’s Weather in Guangzhou is Brown with scattered muggings

In a previous blog entry on 10-12 about Guangzhou (aka Canton) “This is Greg’s big meeting and it’s a disaster. His vendor and the agent are lying through their teeth.

I am cold.

It’s cold. It’s Florida and it’s not supposed to be in the 40s dammit. I just wanted to say that. It’s odd, I like the cold normally, but not today. 

Hurricane Wilma Damage Report

I’m back from the Far East, but what have I come back to? As you know, Hurricane Wilma pounded into Florida while I was away. We had toyed with the idea of coming home to prepare in advance of the storm, but Wilma kept changing speed and direction, and we weren’t even sure if we […]

Hurricanes Redux

I am so damn tired of hurricanes. I have been stuck at home all day because of that bitch, Rita. Relatively harmless to us as it turns out (unlike Katrina) but still a nuisance. Frankly, I’d rather be at work. Scary, eh? BTW, if anyone knows a good roofer, I’ve been trying to find once […]

(Hurricane) Katrina Blows Eric and then New Orleans

OK, I hate Hurricanes. I hated Andrew. I also forgot how much I hated them. I have been reminded. As late as Tuesday evening there was no real inkling there was any sort of problem. Wednesday, we learned we were probably getting a tropical storm. Thursday, they said it might be a hurricane just as […]
