Another lazy day.  Kelly was up around 7 or 7:30 and I got up a little later and ate some breakfast, but then I went back to bed for a while, still needing to rest and be lazy.  I spent most of the day watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy on DVD and finished up the […]


We slept in late this morning.  Actually, we got up for a while and then went back to bed.  I’d been working hard all week and I had to work more today but I needed some rest.  We finally got up and showered sometime around 11 AM. Around noon I started to work.  Kelly headed off […]

No gym this morning

I made chicken marsala and rice pilaf for dinner and both came out good.  I may have slightly overcooked the rice, but it was the first time in my life that I ever made rice and I thought it tasted really good.  There were some leftovers which Kelly is taking for her lunch today.  No writing last night. […]

The Oscars

I’m disappointed in the outcome of last night’s Academy Awards.  Perhaps part of the reason is that I saw only three of the pictures up for awards: Vicky Christina Barcelona The Dark Knight The Wrestler Of the three movies, The Wrestler was far and away the standout of the batch, and Mickey Rourke’s performance in the […]

Weekend wrapup

We went to see Les Mis at the Signature Theater last night and had a great time.  The show was at 8 PM, and after struggling a little to find parking, we went into the theater and were seated on the right side of the "Max" theater, just a few rows back from the stage. […]

A tender breeze blows, whispers through a Gran Torino

Up at 8 AM.  We ate breakfast and then sat around watching Charles Osgood, which is how we like starting off our Sunday’s.  Most of the chores were done yesterday so there wasn’t too much to do around the house today.  I really wanted to see Gran Torino and I didn’t have to twist Kelly’s […]

And then one day you find, ten years have got behind you

Went to bed shortly after getting back from happy hour last night.  I woke up sometime after midnight feeling a bit dizzy; this despite having chugged a liter and a half of water when I got home.  Fortunately, it passed and I slept through the rest of the night undisturbed. Up this morning and we were both […]

Catching up, part 2

I went upstairs to read at 7 PM last night and couldn’t get through a page before falling asleep.  I woke up at 6 AM and Kelly and I decided to stay in bed (and keep warm) until 7:30.  So I basically slept for 12 hours last night.  Then it was off to a busy day in the […]

Caught up, part 1

I’m caught up on Battlestar Galactica, having watched the last 5 episodes of Season 4 finally.  I had given up on most TV shows during the writer’s strike, and I am slowly getting back to a few of them.  New episodes begin tomorrow and yes, I’ll probably end up Tivoing them.

Movies that I want to see

I don’t go to the movies often, but there are currently two movies in theaters that I want to see: Gran Torino with Clint EastwoodThe Wrestler with Mickey Rourke Or I could wait for them to come out of DVD.  It’s not like I don’t have plenty to keep my occupied.

New Year’s Day

We had a quiet day yesterday.  It was cold in the metro D.C. area, with temperatures in the 20s.  We went shopping in the morning.  First to Old Navy for Kelly to get some maternity clothes, then to Target, where she got more maternity clothes, and where we picked up a few other items.  Fromthere […]

Rock Band

Kelly and I are back home after playing Rock Band at Kevin’s for 5 hours!  We got there around noon, went to Boston Market for lunch, and then headed back to play Rock Band.  We started sometime around 12:30 and we finished just before 5:30.  I spent about half the time drumming and the other half […]
