  • Unsent Email
    Last week, Friday, I drafted an email to Jenny. I ended up not sending it. But I sent it to myself just in case I wanted to re-send it another time. As I reread it I was so happy that it went to my dead letter office. Sometimes you want to talk, and it’s a…
  • I want something I did last night to be understood.
    I want something I did last night to be understood. Last night I made a phone call to the person Jenny said she was going to see romantically – Jeremy. I got the phone number from one of the phone bills, and I managed to figure out that that was the one. I left a…
  • Psychosocial Update
    I’m feeling better. I’m less on edge. My sense of humor is returning. I still miss Jennifer. I have an appointment with a counselor today. Jenny is not coming, but I have (emotional) work enough to do on my own I suppose. I still think it would be helpful to get us to talk about…
  • Breaking The News
    Tonight I went over to see my Grandmother to break the news about Jenny and me. I was terrified about how she would take it. And the whole ghoulish thing is just so horrible to tell. My Grandmother was wise, and wonderful, and hopeful that the best outcome would come from all this. She wishes…
  • Bowlinguist
    I’m married to — well — separated from — a linguist – but this is so cool! — Gadget converts woofs into words: The Bowlingual: If Dr Dolittle can’t make animals talk, perhaps Japanese toy maker Takara can. Now we need one for a cat!
  • In Brief
    A few notes on the Current State of the (Marital) Union, and some on the State of my Psyche. Today was hard. I was on edge and feared breaking into tears several times. I have reached out to many people who I feel may have insight for me into how things got the way they…
  • Losing it
    I’m losing it. But I love her. Must be something can be done. Problems which develop over years cannot be solved in a day — but how to get my foot in the door to talk these things over when she’s moved out, and I’ve basically lost my emotional balance? And I’m watching and I’m…
  • separation; submerge into work; avoid sobbing
    Jennifer is away now. To retain a release valve, I have thrown myself into activity – work – personal projects – household chores – errands. I find that when I let myself think about where I am in my personal life I tend to want to scream or sob, which is not socially acceptable outside…
  • Heavy Duty Judy
    Today was a serious day. I suspect there will be more in the near term. Jennifer and I are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our marital bliss. We have no lack of for worse, for poorer, and in sickness, it’s the good stuff we’re having trouble with now. The plan as it stands is for…
  • Christina Update
    Longtime readers know that I’m a Christina Aguilera fan, and follow what’s up with this young popstar. This recent interview with Allure Magazine is a nice update. Nice to see her realizing that she got overexposed, and overworked last year. I remember for a while that any time she’d appear on TV she looked so…
  • New Audio!
    I bought the new Stew record yesterday on my lunch hour, The Naked Dutch Painter & Other Songs. So far, it’s great. My favorite song is Punk Rock T-Shirt Melting, which has been renamed as North Bronx French Marie. Jenny and I have it from the Sweetboot official bootleg. Best lyric: Tonight I sleep with…
  • Friday’s Useless Musings
    I’m listening to the song Son of Mr. Green Genes by Frank Zappa from Hot Rats and it sounds glorious. On the way home from worked I visited Jenny at work, went to the comic book store. Dark Knight Returns (DK2) #3 is still not out. I’ve been waiting for it patiently since February. I…
  • only for Jenny…
    Happy Anniversary, Baby / got you on my mind. Can you believe it? …three years of Married adventures. Thanks for marrying me, honey.
  • Housekeeping & Miscellany
    Some housekeeping here. Individually archived blog pages now have “next” and “previous” links to aid navigation and wayfinding. Yes, I said “navigation and wayfinding.” As if I can’t fancy up my nomenclature? Perish the thought! Also added a piece to words from November, Jenny helped me out with making it coherent. I originally wanted it…
  • SpecialKnittingForces.org
    SpecialKnittingForces.org, via my Wife, and originally from my Grandmother from a Parade Magazine clipping. An interesting idea. Jenny has been knitting — and with great facility — in the past few months. She made me a gray scarf with burgundy stripes. For someone who is essentially self-taught, she does great work. She also made a…

  • New Header
    Thanks to Charles I have an image for a new header [header permalink] for the blog. The goofy hat was made by jenny for the WebSanDiego.org Third Birthday. Nifty and goofy. You can see a cooler image of Charles on 3ones right now. Trip the light fantastic! Editor’s Note: check the image out below, extracted…
  • …the right of the people peaceably to assemble…
    On Friday Jenny and I went to see Michael Moore on his book tour. He wrote Stupid White Men, which was nearly pulped, if not for the action of some stalwart librarians. Read about that on his site. There was an amazing turnout for conservative Navy town San Diego. The Middle School (auditorium? hall?) was…
  • Leavin’, on a jet plane.
    Up early. Jennifer is leaving for Miami this morning. The cat and I will miss her.
