Allegro never misses a beat

The Allegro Condos being built next to my building advertise on their site that you “never miss a beat”. That certainly seems to be the case this morning as they are driving steel beams into the ground like clockwork, shaking my entire building (I’m on the fifth floor of a brick building) and echoing off [...]

Pet health update

I realized that I should give an update on Macy’s health after my last post. Also, amazingly, my original post about cat seizures continues to garner comments well over a year later. Now up to fifteen comments, people from all over are apparently also seeing seizures and finding this blog. So, I hope to be [...]

You know you’re a Web 2.0 geek when…

… you totally nailed the first Buchanan submission to a Flickr pool about U.S. Presidents.

Athenian BORF

Just wanted to make sure that this didn’t slip off the radar… saw an homage to BORF in Athens that I was able to capture. I hope to soon annotate those other moblogs that I took with details as to where and when they were.

Minor update

So, in a nutshell:
* We’re married. Best day of my life. Photos soon.
* Greece & Turkey rocked. I flew back a week before this. Major buzzkill to go from Mediterranean cuisine to eating at a Subway in New Jersey on the drive home — wish I could have come down a little easier.
* Still [...]

It’s never easy

So I took my car back to the collision place for a few niggling issues — the trunk latch was flaky, the steering wheel was rotated slightly, and the brake light was out. I just called to get an ETA (after a whole day) and it turns out when they checked it out, they found [...]

A long summer

Well, I just got my car back after close to three weeks of the rental car (which wasn’t bad, in retrospect). I’ve never put 1500 miles on a rental car before, though. The only problems with my car now are that the trunk doesn’t always latch on the first try and the steering wheel is [...]

R-134a, pronounced “success”

So I just had a minor milestone when it comes to car upkeep. Like a lot of people, I don’t know much about what actually goes on under the hood of a car — it’s kind of a “closed box” system to me. I’m fairly self-conscious about it, since I deal with pretty complicated computer [...]

Getting our ducks in a row

All possessions are, in theory, safe from the elements. Essentially, they were moved from this to this with more than a little bit of this. This seems like years ago at this point.
This past week has easily been the worst of my life, if not Michelle’s as well (her take is here). It punctuated [...]

Flooding again

More coming again soon, I hope, but for now we’re flooding again. Pictures being cataloged here.
