Halloweeniversary

The cool thing about having a Halowe’en related anniversary is that your betrothed can send you cool flower arrangements like this one…

I spent my anniversary with my Mom and Dad, actually. They came down for the afternoon, we had lunch at Gus’ Sir Beef, and then we drove around Charlotte and did a bit of shopping. The flowers showed up about three minutes after we got home. And then, I checked my answering machine and found that (yay!) someone actually wants to interview me for a job. And it’s not at McDonald’s or the new Dunkin’ Donuts down the street…

It’s been a good day, all in all. Only one thing would have made it better…

Traveling to the City of Doom

In about eighty-four hours, I’ll be in San Francisco visiting my hubby for the fourth anniversary of the weekend we met. Fortunately, we’ll be LEAVING San Francisco with twenty-four hours of my arrival, bound for a weekend in Fresno…

I’m very happpy to be making this trip, because I miss Mark something fierce and because I’m looking forward to seeing some friends. But I have to say that the San Francisco aspect of the trip doesn’t do much for me. I’m not actively dreading it or anything; I’m just a touch ambivalent. It’s rather like going through a bad breakup with someone and then running into him at a party shortly afterward. I’m not quite ready to deal with San Francisco just yet. Fortunately, I won’t have to deal with it very much…

I sometimes wonder if I’ll ever really be excited about visiting San Francisco again. I imagine that some sort of nostalgia will set in at some point, but I think it’s going to take quite a while…

Strangely enough, I miss LA a whole bunch. Probably because I never lived there…

Fall Has Arrived After 13 Years

Y’know, I’m not exactly sure if I should be flattered or depressed at the several mash notes I’ve gotten based on that old picture I posted a few days back. After all, no one prefaced their remarks with “of course you look great NOW too….”

Alas…

I’m gonna go drive around and take pictures of dead shopping centers now. I was going to hang around the house today, but I’ve got two thirds of a tank of nice, cheap $2.49/gallon gas from Greensboro in the Toyota, and it’s exerting a tremendous pull on me…

By the way, did I mention how happy I am that fall seems finally to have arrived? I’ve been looking forward to it for several years now…

June 1993

From June of 1993, it’s Grungemaster Dave™ with the optional black bandanna attachment. I’m finding lots of interesting past versions of myself as I go through my entire collection of analog photos, tossing about half and scanning the other half into iPhoto…

Watch this space for more unfortunate hairstyles, drunken moments, and long lost T-shirts from years past. Unless I get bored with it all. Or depressed at how fat I’ve gotten…

Actually, I must admit that I sort of like this one…
