Up and Down

August 19, 2009

Last week, Megs and I took an extended weekend trip up to Eugene and back again for my 10-year high school reunion. We left Wednesday morning for San Francisco where we stayed at Badier’s place for the night, before continuing on to Eugene the next day. Since Wednesday and Thursday were largely just travel, all […]


Summer Time and Not Much

July 16, 2009

Once again another summer in Los Angeles brings the heat. It’s been getting up into the 90’s the past week, but at least we got off easy last month with the so-called “June Gloom”, which I rather enjoyed. But enough about the damned weather! In social news, good buddy Tim O’Brien has departed our shores […]


Egads! A Post!

April 5, 2009

So yeah, for those of you not on Facebook, I must have seemed to have fallen off the face of the Earth. I find that I don’t post here as often now that I have another outlet for the random thoughts that float through my head. But in any case, here is the State of […]


Blackberry Postin’

March 20, 2009

So this is my first attempt at updating the ol’ blog here with my new Blackberry. So far, not too bad. Anyways, Megs and I are currently in the lounge at the Westin Hotel in Palo Alto awaiting her moot court team’s final practice session in a few minutes. The actual competition is later tonight, […]


More Pictures from Christmas 2008

January 6, 2009

The subject says it all, really. I’ve posted more pictures from this last Christmas and I’ve broken them up into galleries: Train ride north, Springfield, Portland, Wine & Cheese Party, Train ride south. I’ll be posting a few more soon from last weekend’s Christmas 5.0 down in Long Beach, but that should tide folks over […]


Home Again, Home Again

January 2, 2009

A little late, but better than never I suppose. We made it back just fine on the train. Practically on time, even! Took lots of pictures on the train, both northbound and southbound. Also took lots of pictures while up in Oregon, so I hope to get those all processed and posted soon. For those […]


Back in Eugene/Springfield

December 26, 2008

We made it safely down from Portland into Springfield yesterday. Lots of family, good food and good times. Internet connection right now is kinda flaky, so I’ll keep this short and post pictures later. The weather here is just rainy and cold. No more snow and ice, which is good. We’ll be in town until […]


Snowed In

December 21, 2008

Well, here we are up in Portland, and if you’ve been following the news, you know that it’s been crazy wintery up here. As you can see, dad’s car is immobile at the moment. Sorry dad. We’ll try to get it dug out by Christmas so we can get back to Eugene/Springfield. Hopefully the weather […]


Arrived in Eugene/Springfield!

December 16, 2008

As the headline shows, we’ve made it to our destination in Oregon. Our train ride was quite nice and I Twittered the hell out of it. Lots of little micro updates along the way there. Anyways, it’s really cold out up here in the northwest. Still snow on the ground and another storm on the […]


Northward Ho!

December 15, 2008

In about nine and a half hours, Megs and I will be boarding a train heading up north back to Oregon for the Holidays. The trip is scheduled to take about 26 hours, which is about twice as long as it takes to drive there. However, this way I don’t have to drive and meals […]
