Hershey Cuco

Hershey Cuco

Saturday Hershey came for a visit and we saw Children of Men. Afterwards we went to Don Cuco’s and had a fascinating talk about modern dating. It was a bit like two generals from opposing sides meeting on a neutral field. We discovered that we are both rare individuals in our outlook on life – and are facing an uphill battle to find a mate. I am working on a much more comprehensive blog entry to elaborate on my year…

crooning Koreans

crooning Koreans

Last night I rushed off to KoreaTown to meet Kent at Tahoe Galbi (an upscale Korean BBQ restaurant). Joining us was Sarah; another piece of the IIS (one of my freelance clients) puzzle who was visiting from England. After eating way too much food and a little Hite I followed Kent and Sarah to a Korean Spa a few blocks away. We walked through the spa – past the nail salon – past the bookstore – then down a set…

NYC –> LA –> NYC

NYC –> LA –> NYC

On Monday night I had a surprise visit (okay, so he told me a while ago he’d be coming around the 8th) from Aaron. I had watched three quarters of the Ohio State bludgeoning at the other Aaron‘s house after work. After three miserable quarters I decided to go home. Shortly thereafter Aaron called to inform me that he was turning onto Pass Avenue. Los Angeles was the beginning of Aaron and Todd’s double cross country trek from New York…

truthiness on myspace

truthiness on myspace

A friend of mine recently put up a forwarded myspace post. It contains forty or so “facts you never knew.” It looked fishy to me so I did some research. Most of the statements were false and when I did more research it turns out these false facts have been circulated around on the internet and emails for years. Unfortunately they are often on children’s websites listed as “fun facts.” It’s fun to lie, kids! Are we trying to raise…
