It’s official now. On Tuesday I will start working for a new company. I will be a member of the marketing department for Appliance Therapy Group in Chatsworth (Northwest LA County).

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=570&ncid=753&e=2&u=/nm/20050217/sc_nm/environment_climate_dc hmm…wonder why this is coming out NOW and not in November…. hmmm…just a coincidence that the GOP’s opinion on global warming is/was “a complete farce, we need more time to study anyway to tell if anything is happening at all. We can’t trust these ‘liberal wacko’ scientists. (who have much less to gain by exposing pollution than the large corporations do by covering it up…those same companies that gave us money in 2000 and 2004…)” When everyone you know…

Hey, the guy has to fund his oil-for-blood program somehow. I guess if you kill their sons and take away their livelyhood they will still support you as long as that rifle can still (legally) sit on the mantle and your daughter can’t get an abortion when you rape her because she’d have to come ask you for permission. “we don’t want your tax and spend liberal policies Kerry” say the farmers in November “oops” say the farmers in February…

celebrity sighting number 3

celebrity sighting number 3

On Friday night Amy and I decided to head over to the Burbank Barnes and Noble to do some reading. As we were walking towards the entrance we walked past a Bentley Continental GT that was being parked. I remarked that it was a rich person’s car. Then I saw the driver was a young guy (this is a dark garage at night keep in mind) and said “probably some actor or something.” Amy then asked “do you want to…

Last Saturday I went out to dinner with Amy’s family. We had “crispy eel.” That was my first time tasting eel. It tasted like sweet and sour calamari (good). Last week I turned Amy on to Uno. Last Sunday she bought her own deck and still can’t get enough of it. Monday night I went to my first (and last) Modest Mouse concert. When I got to my seat at 7:30 I looked at my ticket and it said 8….

A few weeks ago Amy’s working hours changed. She no longer works weekends, at least for the time being. So we decided to make Saturday nights our “date night.” The plan being to cruise down Ventura Boulevard until finding a cool looking restaurant. Now, there is free parking around the boulevard if you know where to find it, but the street parking is all metered. We started this weekly thing on the 22nd. We cruised for a few miles up…
