Beautiful drive through Connecticut


Kate and I finish off the Swedish chicken

Quite easily, in fact. Yum! Thanks, Mom.

Jo introduces me to her friends

Behold! The Awesome (un)Natural Wonder of Foamhenge! it's an overcast day, Foamhenge is closed, and my fone-cam has less resolution than a Democrat-controlled least TRY to Behold! The Awesome....etc.

Hasn't snowed in a week, and has been sunny, if not warm...

...and yet everything still looks like this. Come on, Spring!

Random Ludicrous TV moments...

Trolling for news, I ran across this high-energy Brazilian/Aztecian/ninja/model/physician/cosmetics designer/entrepreneur. You can tell he's a doctor: he has stethoscope over his ninja outfit nestled right between his pouting pectorals. Dr. Ninja!

The Capital Hilton: 16th & K NW

Where Trader Vic's used to be. Doing a show for barristers tonight. Barristers, as I understand it, are just like lawyers, except with bigger wallets.

Sorry guys! That was my pants calling!

Shhhhhhh! (Was in the waiting room of my ear, nose and throat guy. Getting the pipes checked. When you make a living with your mouth, you get paranoid....)

Pasadena is full of healthful restaurants, brimming with natural and nutritious foods

And also this place. If I should die in the next few hours, this is probably why.

It's pretty at the Westin Pasadena

Where we always stay for CalTech, too. The gardens on the south side. It's a movie!

Drivin' to Pasadena...

Night off!

Plaza del Sol Performance Center at U Cal Northridge

Dr. Irwin and I demonstrate how the Steps underutilize a dressing room.

Obstructed view from rm 1211 of the Warner City Marriott in LA

Worst. Porn. Ever.

The local college team provides endless juvenile fodder.

Us: One guy in wacky clothes onstage; four people changing into wacky clothes backstage.

At the WC for the PA in Olympia.

The Washington Center for the Performing Arts, Olympia, WA...

...has a good shot at the title for Creepiest Back Alley Approach to the Stage Door Entrance

Why am I taking pictures in the bathroom of an Airbus A-320?

Because every time I'm in one of these planes, I wonder if this is not the same wallpaper we used to have in the yellow bathroom in Montpelier. Or if not there, somewhere. I've sat forlornly a-squeezin' and staring at this pattern somewhere. Repeatedly. Besides the plane, I mean.

TW likes riding with me on long flights...

...'cause I bore him to sleep and it makes his flight seem shorter.

Even the Scrabble Game seems to be on my case.  Well F.U. Scrabble you hear that? F.U.!  I don't need to take a bunch of hooey from a freakin' GAME.

Off to Washington state in the morning. The early morning. The real early morning. So it'll be an all travel day tomorrow.  Love you guys!

The Day After: First Emergence

A movie of my virginal vehicular exiting.

Ground level view movie

One fool car zipping down the road. And even though I have power, an electric company truck lurks ominously in the background.

Same boring view...

But it's not like I'm going anywhere. Just wanted to show the hollywood-style blowing snow. I'm at the top of my building; that's not blowing off anything, it's just coming out of the sky like that. Damn.

Again, should be a movie., so click if it works..

Snowing and blowing like crazy here

This is supposed to be a movie, Mom, so click. Love you guys!

Da Big Snow Redux: Southbound across the 14th St. Bridge

I'm home, but it was an extremely evil drive. I shall not be venturing forth again. Perhaps ever.

Catholic Bishop's Conference, Capitol Hill Hyatt

See, the poor migrants and refugees never get much help....

Da Big Melt begins....

At least until the 4-6 inches due to arrive tomorrow. Sweet.

Da Big Snow: Sterling, noon

Driving home. Tedious, but made it. Yuck. Love y'all.

Love the Goodwill

OK, ducked into the Goodwill not far from me looking for a cheap new tie.  Great place for ties, generally; they don't cost much, are generally in decent shape, there's usually at least one expensive tie hidden in the pile, plus the type who shop there, by-and-large, are not tie-wearing sorts so they're not so picked over.

Didn't find a tie, but my heart was gladdened by Spock and Shrek, both solemnly awaiting purchase.  I think Spock has a chance...but I don't know about Shrek.  he appears to be made of dyed, coagulated dung.

First day off in a while...

....wracked by hours in cars and planes. Time to get all gay: Calgon, take me away!
