Holy crap - a month without DSL and I thought I was gonna die.

No joke.



Or not much of a joke anyway.
aspasia:

That's no joke at all. Ugh.

I have no real update. Just a minor apology to all those with whom I've been anything but consistent in my communication.

Life is an odd, busy, frustrating place. But I have no excuse.

My apologies.

Liam.
salome:

Thanks for the kind words, and I hope to see you at the next event!

T-eh parents came up for the weekend... and I am a lucky boy as a result. I love it when me pa picks up the tab and me mum chooses the joint.

Friday night - a really perfect prosciutto and black truffle stuffed ravioli in gorgonzola cream sauce. A very nice sangiovese to pair.

Saturday night - the best venison I've had, ever. Served with a...

So depressing...

I used to be a decent pool player. Not great, but decent.

Got back on a 9' table yesterday (and went back for more punishment today) for the first time in probably 6 or 7 years. (Bar tables are NOT even close... almost a new kind of game).

It hurt. Alot. Missing even the most basic of shots (and inexplicably hitting the really...

i think that the closest i'll get to Chicago this year will be when i go out to Indianapolis in June for the USGP

right now i'm waiting on 3 cues:
Bert Schrager--- almost 5 years of waiting
Joel Hereck--- almost 2 years into a 5 year wait
and
Ernie Guiterrez (Ginacue) only a 6 to 7 month wait

once i get one of the cues, and a new pair of glasses that have bigger lenses i think i may try to start to play seriously again.

salome:

You're lucky that you can play. I'm TERRIBLE at pool, and it makes me so sad because for a few months in college I really wanted to be a pool shark.

Thanks for the congratulations!

In the past week I have been - in order:

Happy
Stressed
Sick
Tired

I am now back to happy, but looking at the upcoming week, I sense the approach of stressed. So - if I can just avoid sick, I'll be good.

Happy New Year everyone!

My resolutions are my own, but some of my goals I'll share:

1. Generate enough of my current...

I should update this more often. But that (at least in my own mind) would require having something to say that isn't a repeat of the same story: work blah, hours blah, rinse, repeat.

I do have some potentially interesting pieces in the works. Ideas ideas are everywhere.

Famdamily's big holliday party is this weekend. Provided that I-65 is not snowed over, I...

That sounds nice. I am a stranded orphan this Christmas. I shall look in your family's windows, blowing on my hands to keep them warm.

Thanks for the compliment on my photo.

You still owe me dinner though. wink

aspasia:

It wasn't the older that warranted it a shudder, it was the gazing.

And yeah, what's up with the dinner? wink

...

I am undecided on the holidays. I like them in theory. But the timing, stress and fundage required of them wears on me after a while.

Humbug.

I guess I'll go try and dig out a parking space in the meantime. I liked snow a lot more when I didn't have to drive. Why oh why can't there be a train out...

Green Zebra . . . Packing My Apartment . . . Green Zebra . . . Packing My Apartment

You better be careful throwing those offers around, a girl just might take you up on one.

Thanks kiss

aspasia:

I am packing, only because I'm moving on the 15th from Rogers Park (bleh) to Lincoln Park.

Are you daring me to take you up on an offer to eat at restaurant I've wanted to eat at for months, on my birthday, which as it falls on a Tuesday, I have no real plans for? If you are, indeed, daring me to do so, send me an e-mail--something that assures me that 1) you aren't crazy internet man 2) I'll have a nice time and meal (even though I can't eat dairy) and I'll take you up on it.

Ok - no more griping.

Mostly caught up at work. The big boss is happy. I can sleep and enjoy a holiday with my family.

Time to clean up a little, grab some dinner, then hit Gio's for a pint and some darts before crashing.

Have a happy Turkey day!
