A landline won't work when I'm in a car on my way to Scottsville...


TOday we saw the statue of liberty, Ellis Island, ground zero (which was disappointing since we could not get in), chinatown (smelly place), we saw the charging bull with the big nuts... My feet are killing me.

This is her 40th. At least there is beer! I drug my wife to Porsche Parade where I know so many folks and the wife does not. This is partial payback.

Stijn!!

We are out of that party. It was at an Elks club that was built in the 60s and has never been updated. There were smokers and way too many people for the size of the place. It was noisy and the only person I knew was my wife.

Fortunately I am not a shy guy and found some other spouses to BS with. The beer was cold.

My 20th is coming up at the end of the month. Fortunately it's here in town. I'm actually looking forward to it.

did the 25th last year. Major disapointment. Same stupid crowd of snobs and clics. I got even by leaving at 4:30 in the am by driving from one end of the hotel lot to the other at full sport exhaust roar from the 911. Made it to the front desk to check out as the calls were coming in. I told the clerk yep that was me and I might do it again.

I was just at a party.... Packed with the sort of people I'd rather not be crammed in a small apartment with...

Did get to see two mildly decent looking skanky girls make out... Other than that pretty lame...

You had to be there. It didn't look like fun, so we left
