  1. Busy Week

    This week is going to be very busy for me, so I appologize in advance my fuse seems a little short, as it is. This is my last week of work, so I have to wrap up all the projects and breif all the people involved in them. I’m changing bedrooms in Seattle, the first…

  2. Last Leg of My Vacation

    We, as a family, are going on a vacation to Cannon Beach, Oregon. I guess this might be considered a vacation from my vacation, seeing as I am already on vacation…if that makes any sense. I hesitate to call it a vacation, as these things sometimes turn into retreats.

  3. Cell Phone is Back Online!

    After being without a cell phone for an agonizing 5 days, I am finally back on the network. Same great number, same great voice at the other end. Getting my phone back in operational order was no small task. I ended up borrowing the battery from Quinn’s phone (which hasn’t been in the water) and…

  4. Verizon, LG, and a 15 Inch Black Rubber Cock

    You have to have seen Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels to get the what the title means. I I took my phone into Verizon on Monday and they said “Looks like you got water damage.” The display on the phone was foggy, so that was a no brainer. I went back today. The phone…

  6. Hearing the Sumatra-Andaman Quake

    Wow. I listened to the audio file [mp3] and it is really errie. From livescience.com: Sound from last December’s huge tsunami-causing earthquake was picked up by underwater microphones designed to listen for nuclear explosions. Scientists this week released an audio file of the frighteningly long-lasting cracks and splits along the Sumatra-Andaman Fault in the Indian…

  7. Welcome Home Baby Ben!

    Carin Towne is back home, safe and sound with Benjamin Towne. I talked with Jeff last week right after I heard their baby was born. The connection was unbelievably bad, but Carin and Ben were fine and Jeff sounded like he could sleep for a week. I…

  8. A Series of Unfortunate Events

    So here I am at Quinn’s parent’s new house in Hansville. It must have hit mid 80’s today. I’m in my swim trunks all day long. At some point in time I put my cell phone in my pocket after making a call, or something. Then about 5 minutes later I go sit in the…
