Bad night!

January 9th, 2005 · No Comments

I slept really poorly last night. I woke up this morning feeling as if my head were swollen (more than usual) and when I looked into the mirror, I had the worst looking dark circles and bags under my eyes. I’m not one who’s too concerned about the way I look, but at the moment […]

Good flight, Good Night!

January 9th, 2005 · No Comments

I’m back to work again. I had to commute to Denver this evening, as tomorrow’s first flight out was looking oversold and I didn’t want to risk missing work. On top of that, I have a 8 hour flying day tomorrow and I didn’t want to have to wake up at 0400 to get to […]

Brought to you by the letter "D"…

January 7th, 2005 · No Comments

The daughter has found a new sound. For the past few weeks, she’s been babbling more and more. The stuff she says are mostly vowels and soft-consonants (bababa, mamamamama, etc.), but this morning she woke up saying this: “dadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadada….” An endless string of “dada’s.” Cool. The “d” sound is her new favorite, right next to […]

How’d that song from "Queen" go??

January 6th, 2005 · No Comments

Something about them making the “rockin world go ’round?” http://www.pvponline.com/archive.php3?archive=20050105 Scott Kurtz has got a good thing going with PvP Online. It’s an online-only comic strip that I’ve been reading for about two years now. His sense of humor is very much like mine, and I think he’s really hit the nail on the head […]

The stuff we’ll be able to show her boyfriends later…

January 6th, 2005 · No Comments

She’s a Lumberjack and She’s Okay!! The bear-hat just kills ya, doesn’t it? We’ve managed to put off taking the Christmas tree down to tomorrow night. I figure we’ve got good homeowner’s insurance. Besides, it’s supposed to rain tomorrow, so that should keep my house from burning down when the tree spontaneously combusts. They do […]

Ahh…off-time!

January 5th, 2005 · No Comments

After being away from home for five out of the last six days (thanks to month-end schedules), I’m at home for a much needed break from the airlines. Four days off! Jeannen is going for a job interview today with IMS (innovative Merchant Services). They’re a company that does about the same thing that her […]

Ugh…what a week!

January 4th, 2005 · No Comments

I’m flying a three-day trip this week. The insanity started yesterday with my commute from LAX to DEN. It was FAR busier on the 2nd of January ’05 than it was on the 24th of December ’04 in terms of number of people travelling by air. Strange. I think it had something to do with […]

Malls…

January 1st, 2005 · No Comments

I managed to get through the Christmas season without going into a mall. I think my blood pressure would back up that claim. Today, though, we took a trip down to Topanga Plaza to see if we could find something appropriate for my wife to wear to an interview she’s got coming up. I’ll tell […]

Happy New Year!

January 1st, 2005 · 1 Comment

I’m not sure if 2005 will hold a candle to 2004, but I’m looking forward to the year nonetheless. Last year my daughter was born, Mom and I had season tickets for the Dodgers, and I had the chance to interview with the only major airline I’ve ever really wanted to work for: Southwest. As […]

Fargo…

January 1st, 2005 · No Comments

Wow. It gets cold in Fargo. It gets so cold in Fargo that the people that live there seem to be unable to do anything but eat at schmaltzy chain-restaurants (a-la Red Robin and Applebee’s), roam the shopping mall endlessly (because it’s warm and they don’t have to pay the heating bill), or spend the […]
