In the rain

June 30, 2003

Well, unlike Eugene from what I hear, it’s raining here in Dublin. Quite a lot, actually. You’d all be proud. I feel quite at home, but like home I don’t have an umbrella. So, anyways I’m sitting in a little Internet Call Shop across the street from our hostel and I must say that I […]


In Ireland

June 29, 2003

Well, here we are in Ireland now. It’s going well, and we’re staying at a hostle in Dublin for the next couple of days. The ferry ride over was relaxing and it allowed me time to finish the latest Harry Potter book. I’ll withold comment on the book itself to avoid spoilers, but if you […]


Leaving Bath

June 28, 2003

Well, our time in Bath has been grand, but it’s time to move on. We’re leaving in just a few minutes to go to the coutryside and end up in Liverpool, I think. Yesterday afternoon we checked out the Roman baths, now underground, which was very, very cool. They’re still remarkably functional considering it’s been […]


Ah ha! Here we are!

June 27, 2003

Ta da! My first real message posted from England! I posted a comment on my last post yesterday because the kiosk at the airport wouldn’t let me into my password-protected section of my site where I post my news from. Anyways, here we go! I’m in Bath right now, which is according to our tourguide, […]

June 23, 2003

So yeah, in case you haven’t heard, I’m going to Europe with mom, Matt and Kim from Wednesday June 25th until July 13th. Here’s our tenative itinerary in case you’re interested. I plan to post here as often as I can from the road, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to put up […]


May the Pants Be With You

June 22, 2003

OK, I don’t usually copy and paste stuff here, but this was too damn funny to pass up. Enjoy. 25 Lines From Star Wars That Can Be Improved if you substitute the word “Pants” A tremor in the pants. The last time I felt this was in the presence of my old master. You are […]


Naked Man

June 19, 2003

No, I’m not talking about myself this time. Get this, I was out walkin’ with Megs last night down by the river, when we spotted this naked man running around doing semi-obscene things to telephone poles out by the Ferry Street Bridge for the shock and awe of the passing traffic. We were far enough […]


Forums down

June 17, 2003

Yeah, the forums are down. I think you’ll all survive, but I’ll try to get something working as soon as I can. Possibly this weekend when I’m on a faster net connection I’ll be able to work something out. The comments still work, though.


Home again

June 15, 2003

Well, once again I’m out of my home in Carson Hall, but this time for good. Kinda sad, but this is the next thing, I guess. I already wrote a long-winded sappy entry (see the one previous to this one), so I’m not gonna indulge in that now. I just wanted to let everyone know […]


Fresh rain

June 13, 2003

You know, I really, really savor the smell of new rain in the city. That smell that comes from the first few drops on the pavement just takes me back and clears my head. If I just close my eyes and breathe in really deep through my nose, it’s all I can sense and it’s […]
