Chicago Pictures

I’ve started posting pics of our Chicago trip. Head over to the gallery and click on travel. I’ll continue adding more until we’re done, around the 4th.


We are in Chicago. The train here was fun. I recommend it as a mode of travel. Yesterday we went to The Field Museum. I forgot my camera. That was dumb. I will take it today and post some pics tonight. I have to go now, my day beckons.

Bah Humbug

In the lead up to WalMart-mas work is attempting to kill me, thus the light posting. I will, however, be travelling to Chicago on our nation’s state of the art rail system on Saturday… and Sunday, for a little over a weeks vacation. Pics and posts galore should follow.

Help The Lovely Wife…

She is lost without school or work, and needs your help to fill the time. Go and pick out a book for her.

The Lovely Wife Graduates!

The Lovely Wife is graduating and will walk the stage tonight at the Frank Erwin Center. She put a lot of time and hard, hard work into this, and I could not be more proud of her accomplishment.

There will be a small celebration at Opal’s tonight after the ceremony ends. If you can’t make it give her a call and wish her a happy adulthood!


Unless I’m terribly mistaken, I don’t think these women actually eat that much cheese.

Paperback artwork from the 50’s and 60’s. Lesbian, gay and straight.

When I take pictures of people, this is what I’m aiming for. I miss.

Sweet. See if you can name them all.

Best Album of 2005


I can’t tell you what this album is like. I’ll only sound like I’m proselytizing, and really, if I told you it was a little bit of Elliot Smith, Philip Glass and Kurt Weill all mixed up with a pinch of Sondheim and Zappa, well, now I just sound pretentious. And you still have no idea what it sounds like. So go listen to some samples on Illinois, or just jump in with both feet and buy it. If you do, and you don’t like it, I’ll buy you a beer*.

*Beer must be consumed with me in Austin, TX and you must defend your musical retardation while drinking it.
