Chappellet!

Yesterday I went to the Pritchard Hill party at Chappellet. I took Harry. We hadn’t gotten in trouble in a while. I had never taken him to Chappellet because of their M-F appointment only policy. On one hand, it’s a…

The Pink Bunny is back!

After toiling away in the land of databases and localhosts and shiz that I just don’t really get, the problem was that the domain was pointed in the wrong direction. Kind of like those wind up toys that run into…

Managing my own stupidity

This morning’s weigh in: Weight 210 Fat 36.5 BMI 35.9 Just by keeping my head screwed on correctly, things are heading in the right directions. It’s taken me almost four weeks, but I have 8 pounds off of me. I…

In a fit of temporary insanity, The Contessa called me last Saturday night and asked for assistance retrieving his new Carrera from the Porsche dealership in Redwood City. Of course, I would help a friend in need, but I’m pretty…
