This is simulated me at soundcheck

And yes, that is the simulated downtown Chicago Hilton and Towers behind me (fake).

I left my camera phone at home, so I'll have to simulate pictures of my Chicago trip

...this is me getting ready to go to the airport...

Stone Ridge High School, Ashbury, VA

In our modern, United Colors of Benetton-style high school, even the wig heads are multicultural.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Chocolate Turtle Pie. That I made! Cause it was easy! Love y'all!

Kate and Alex find a place!

In this extraordinarily silly picture of them, we see what passes for joy on their stunned faces as they realize they have to move in 6 days.

Jon's cat, Mullah

One of Jon's cats, anyway. He has two. Jon is a cat person. The other cat is named GhostFace Killah.

Bedford, PA

Apparently, you used to could get coffee here. Why do I miss all the good stuff?

We snicker like juveniles.....

...on the way to the airport.

I rest my case...

The lovely Mellow Theatre at Lackawanna College, Scranton, PA

U of Scranton, Scranton,PA (I mean seriously, where else...)

Fortunately, the Jesuits don't seem big on tennis, and Kevin and I found several huge, beautiful and deserted courts to play on. Sweet! Love y'all...

Drexel Hill, PA

Rich is famous for being able to sleep ANYWHERE at ANY time. Here, we have just discovered the show will be delayed 5 minutes. That's 5 minutes that Rich knows EXACTLY how to use. And, yes, we are shining a halogen flashlight on his face and, no, it doesn't disturb him in the slightest.

The inconsistency of my job...

One night, the private jet; the next night the room facing the 70-decibel fan unit + brick and, if you order today, tar and gravel!

Indianapolis Convention Center

If you thought it was fun standing around having your picture taken with mid- to upper-level echelon Indiana businessmen then I have to tell you, you were wrong.

Finally traveling in the style to which we have not become accustomed

(I forgot to tell you it's a movie...click the arrow!)


Whenever I wash Michelle's oven mitts....

video...
...I feel like some sort of murderer.

Whilst in my elevator...

...I realized I had neglected to crow about the hapless Buccaneers finally winning a football game. And yes, I DO realize you don't care. :)

It may true that in the past, I have likened...

video...
...Andy's natural grace and fluidity to that of a recently purchased, 50-lb. bag of Sakrete. But he gets to do the dirty mambo with cute little Felicia, so clearly he's doing something right. It's a movie, Mom, click the arrow! Love ya!

Driving to work...sweet...

The Word of the Day is...

...'Grizzled.'

A Place I Actually Didn't Eat At

And can you blame me? Somewhere in NJ, I believe. It conjures up unsavory images of burly Arabian men with imposing turbans towering over their swarthy brows and dense clouds of smoke fissuring forth from their voluminous --if diaphanous-- trousers....

The Revenge of the Kate

She brought the Thunder, I brought the Blunder. Curse my foul offspring!

Dulles Airport

Gave a friend a ride to the airport this morning early. It was weirdly empty. Why is it never like rhat when I fly?

Dessert: Bananas Foster Supreme; Lemon Defarge, whatever the hell that is...


I didn't ALL the Krystal burgers (think White Castle), I split them with Rich


An 18-oz Mesquite-grilled Bone-in Cowboy Steak; Lobster, Crayfish + Excess


Filet Mignon with Bernaise Sauce and Crabmeat; Shrimp and Grits


My Recent Trip Through the South...or...Why I'm Fat...a pictorial essay by Me

My next to last trip was through Mississippi and Louisiana, bastions of fat people eating the food that made them that way. And now I'm one of them.  Above you see a Waffle House menu and the end result of perusing it: biscuits and gravy. Not as good as yours, Mom, but that didn't stop me from glomping them down without regard for health or appearance.  And the litany begins...

Glenside, PA

The tragedy of this, of course, is that it's NOT A wig....

Glenside, PA

Some theatres seem less welcoming than others...
