while looking for something on my computer, i came across this. it was going to be the blog entry for 9.11.2001, which i decided not to post [for obvious reasons]. i had meant to post it when things had returned to some semblance of normalcy [ha!] but totally forgot.

this strikes me as something tom would do. i'm not sure why. boredom's not a burden anyone should bear.

the wedding was lovely. my date was lovely and looked ohsofine. the reception was a cast party, but we were dressed in nicer clothes and there were parents. smooshy nostalgic melancholy. so much more that will remain unsaid. . .

thanks to heather and michelle for sending along hemp info. summary: they are different plants. dea is dumb.


DEA Bans Consumption of Hemp Foods. from the article: 'In announcing the rules, DEA chief Asa Hutchinson explained that "many Americans do not know that hemp and marijuana are both parts of the same plant and that hemp cannot be produced without producing marijuana."' i was under the impression that they were two completely different and separate plants from the same family? someone help me out clarifying this. contact info over there [gesture right].

good grief. who thought this was a good idea? the remote lounge. they've got a website, where you can check out the people at the bar. so. you stalk people by remote controlling cameras to check them out. then you cen send them a text message. and you can talk on the phone. while you are both in the same bar! sigh. . . why are we so afriad of human interaction? [via the soon to be married dibble]

i don't like football. or, i should say, i just don't get football. oh well.

This is Julianne Varacchi's first web page. who's a proud big sister? that'd be me.

things i have learned/realized/whatever in the last week [or so].
+ apparently, women have suddenly become breast-less. or at least that's what the people who make dresses seem to think.
+ movies should come with a "you may not want to watch this in the wake of 9.11" warning.
+ macguffin
+ some people are heroes. for many, many reasons.
+ i should really write this stuff down when i think of it, lest i forget.

i admit it. i watch dark angel. but i am concerned about where the show is going. or amused. one of the two.
"hmmmmm. well, last year ended up with them admitting they like each other. so the sexual tension is gone."
"we need it back! you can't have a show without sexual tension!"
"i know i know. but what can we do?"
"i've got it! we make this disease. and it'll be genetically engineered just for him. and then, we make her the carrier. so that way, they can't ever touch or he'll DIE!"

three monkeys.


annie and the hedonists were faboo. i [of course] bought their brand new cd. it, too, is faboo, but sadly, does not do her voice justice.

+ thursday. mass moca.
+ friday. cafe capriccio's cooking and wine society. it is the most fun. i've been two or three times before, when i was living near albany. friday's class includes "selections from our autumn menu: assorted antipasti, risotto with mushrooms, braised baby lamb Roman style and a fine dessert." yum.
+ saturday. annie and the hedonists [a great band, who i've only seen at the troy victorian stroll, although they've also played caffè lena and the eighth step] is releasing their first cd. i am going to the cd release party. ohyesindeedie.
+ other stuff.

windows of hope. eat out tonight, a portion of the proceeds from participating restaurants goes to helping september 11th victims. end of season grades for the players. finally, a little end of the year trivia: joe "i like a stable line up" kerrigan managed 43 games. how many different line-ups did he have? that's right. 43. [okok, i am perhaps exaggerating. it was at least 40. i haven't verified the few final games.]


cirque du soleil to be released on dvd.

i had to fly. the airports were quiet and muted and strange.

littleredboat: october 5.

things that made me jump that probably wouldn't have if they happened before Tuesday. walking down columbus ave in boston last night, all of the street lights suddenly went out. apartments and restaurants were still lit, but the street lights went dark. and my heart stopped. and i thought, "hm. this is actually kind of pretty! i wish i could focus on that instead of thinking that i am going to get shot or that something will certainly blow up." and then this morning, driving through the pike tunnel [no, i don't know the real name or if it even has one] all the tunnel lights suddenly went out. very freaky.

pan's house of horns. for all your. . . horny needs? [via /usr/bin/girl]


you know, it's a good thing they fired jimy and replaced him with kerrigan to turn the team around. it did work, after all. they went from being a team in contention to one that sucks.

dilbert meets six sigma. [ok, this may only be entertaining for me.]
