Lots of waking up.

Lots of stuff to do but fun.
Been watching Buffy.

The weekend is here!
Tonight is a bachelorette.
The next, a concert.

Misc. Items

Pictures are coming soon. That's for sure. I've divided them up into four albums:
  • Beers of Prague & Berlin
  • Food of Prague & Berlin
  • Berlin
  • Prague
I may end up having an album called Buildings and another called Photoshoots. We'll see.

Still getting adjusted to the time. Keep waking up super early. Dude.

What's been going on around here? Any news? I have a few announcements of things that happened whilst I was away:

Happy Anniversary to Ruthie & Alan!

Happy Anniversary to Sunny & Ranaldo!

Happy Anniversary to my Ma & Pa!

Well done all you married people.

Hiatus

I think this is going to be a beautiful vacation.

I just finished reading this book, bedtime eyes by amy yamada. Helloooo slightly pornographic written material! I guess with a name like bedtime eyes I should have known.

I'm so glad the Yankees finally won a freaking game last night.

I can't wait til LOST and wine club tonight!

What's the weather in Berlin, you say? Looks to be the upper sixties, lower 70s. Perfect for cute clothes and wee jackets.

And how about Prague? Just about exactly the same.

Get ready for lots of pictures, people.

Stevie Wonder

In light of how many of you either a) want to have dinner with Stevie Wonder b) want to go to a Stevie Wonder concert or c) don't want to do either, I thought it was fitting to take this time to wish Steve Wonder a very happy birthday.

Keep singing, man.

Haiku Friday

A few nights ago,
A guy in a tank top sat
down on the subway.

He proceeded to
open a box of ice cream
sandwiches to eat.

Then, he passed them out
to those sitting next to him.
Total comedy.

Quick Question:

Catchup

"three tomatoes are walking down the street- a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato. baby tomato starts lagging behind. poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and smooshes him... and says, catch up!" - Mia Wallace [Uma Thurman] Pulp Fiction

Dude, we really have to catch up.


Happy Birthday today to JOY!
Happy Birthday on Sunday to Cindy Lisima!
Happy Cinco De Mayo!
I owe you pictures of my trip to Wisconsin. I owe you stories about open containers, various flights, Delta being the worst airlines in the world staffed by the most incompetent employees on the planet, a nice baked feta, and excitement about my upcoming trip to Prague.
Hopefully tonight or tomorrow?

haiku friday

Waiting for the G
Como a messed up doors song.
Not jim's intention.

Funny story soon
Perhaps involving open
Containers and cops.

As for this week, though
Let's chalk it up to finished
And start fresh next time.

Dude

I wrote my haiku for haiku Friday on the train this morning. Imagine my surprise when I learned its not Friday.

I've been meaning to tell you guys a few things:
  • I love the Yankees.
  • I hate it when Yankees go down on strikes.
  • I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • I don't care who knows it.
  • I still wish Hillary Clinton would be the President but want it to just be over with all this primary nonsense. If Obama's going to win, let's just be done with it.
  • I really need to get my eyebrows done today.
