New Wrinkle On Avoiding Jury Duty - April 30, 2009 →
This guy tried to get out of jury duty. He wrote a letter and got it notarized. Check out what he wrote. You can’t make this shit up.
Today was a good day
Had a good event this afternoon at the Paley Center for one of my clients Because of said event, got to meet some folks in the media for the first time, always nice to put a face to a name Got some great placements this afternoon from said event My “gimp scooter” arrived at the office, and it’s been like night and day - no more stupid crutches! Was finally able to go to the...
My football team clinched a playoff spot, but I got injured in last Sunday’s game. I kinda feel like Phil Simms from the 1990 NFL season, who also suffered a broken foot. Hoping our team completes the year with a championship like the Giants. Let’s go Rule 76! No excuses, play like a champion!
The Kentucky Derby →
Big day this Saturday with the Derby. I need to do my homework. The early favorite is I Want Revenge at 3-1. I like that name but the horse is coming out of the 13th post, not a lucky number I suppose.
I’m not sure I want to use my knee scooter in my studio apt, crutches seem to be the better choice here.
My "new" kind of crutches - I get it tomorrow,... →
I met up for happy hour with my buddy Daniel from Witch’s Rock Surf Camp (Costa Rica). It’s been way too long since we last hung out, I’m guessing at least a year, or could go back to when we got back from Tamarindo in Sept. ‘07. Looking at possible July surf trip to Cabo. I seriously need to go, either Cabo, or someplace else, I need a surf trip, stat.
I’ve been such a slacker with Tumblr, my bad. Maybe with this fracture, I’ll have more time to sit down and post/reblog stuff.
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Finally saw it tonight. It was alright, cute storyline, awesome soundtrack. My fave song has to be Paul Tiernan’s “How to say goodbye.”
Another stupid sports injury
I broke my foot yesterday playing football. So by my count, that’s two fractures in 7 months - both times, I would say were freak occurences. Breaking my pinkie from playing catch before a game, and my foot because I stupidly tried to make a “cut” on a dirt baseball field, which as anyone knows is a stupid move. I love to play football and I know I’m getting older. And...

To prove how busy I’ve been of late, I’m about to catch up with some TV shows on the DVR. First up tonight, perhaps the only one I can realistically handle tonight before going to bed, is the 3/30 episode of 24.
Today I went to Easter mass for the first time in a long time. Let me just say that I’m not a religious person, I’m more spiritual if anything. I felt good about going to church, and having a Catholic upbringing defnitely helped shape me into the person that I am today. In the end, Easter and the big Catholic/Christian holidays to me is all about family, and a reinforcement of those...
I'm sorry Tumblr
Haven’t really been active as of late. Been really busy. Hoping that I can get back on the Tumblr horse and provide new updates.
