My Apologies

October 30th, 2005
If any of you tried to access this site between Wednesday and Saturday of this past week, you know you were unable to do so. The landing page showed that the account, my account, had been suspended. The explanation is one involving security. Someone had… more »

Bring on the sexy stews.

October 24th, 2005
You sit in your assigned seat, tray table locked and seat back in its upright position, as the plane taxis to the runway. You have pulled away from the gate only moments before; the trip before take-off is not a long one. The captain or some assemblence… more »

October 10th, 2005
So Saturday night, in a rare turn of events, not only did I end up at the bar, but I actually found myself talking to girls. Trust me, I was as shocked as you. I headed out to the bar with a buddy from law school on Saturday in an effort to get out of… more »
