Thursday, on the cusp of August.

I bought a parking pass today for the fall semester at Cal State Fullerton. I'm enrolled in 6 classes, plus I might sign up for a yoga class, if there's time, in addition to Aikido, of which I've been a poor student lately. I've spent most of the morning watching TV and reading the comics I bought at Comic Con. I'll try to get my pics up today or tomorrow, too. But until then, I gotta get the house cleaned up, take Willy to the dog park, and clean myself up, in that order. Also, I've got a birthday coming up... Donations are greatly accepted:

Dovo "Special" 6/8 Straight Razor

And a strop...


SDCC Day 3

In the middle of our third day here, we're taking a little break to sit, drop our things off at the car and maybe find a little grub. The weather is great down here. We couldn't have asked for better conditions. Time to get back to it.


sweet! iPhone blog!

Chris brought his iPhone to the campsite and let me blog on it. It's pretty sweet.

Day/night #1 was a success, tho as a group we have yet to master the intricacies of campsite cooking. Everything's turned our great thanks to Chris' desire to share a hot meal with his buddies.

Now we're off for a big day of tearing up the town. And maybe Batman.


Off to Comic Con!

I'm just a few short bartending hours away from my trip to Comic Con! My bags are packed, and I'm so excited to go! I've got to leave the loves of my life for a week, which sucks, but I'll keep in contact, babydoll!

I'll be back on Sunday!



It's nearly one AM, and I just got home from my shift tonight. One of my long-time regulars at the restaurant pulled me aside and told me that I'm visibly upset, or worn out, or that something's the matter with me. This guy is incredibly perceptive, and completely nice. I've known him and his family for the last 5-6 years, through the restaurant, and they've been nothing but nice to me throughout that entire time. We talked a little bit, and he laid some sage advice on me (he and his wife have 4 or 5 kids and they've got to be late 30s/early 40s, tops). But I do feel unsettled, and I'm not sure what I need to do to settle myself. Between school issues and money issues and medical issues and my Comic Con trip next week, I think I'm just scatterbrained.

Part of my demeanor tonight was that I'm completely fucking tired lately, too. I say that after I climb into bed with Dawn & Willy, ready to pass out, only to gain a second wind. I'm here in front of the E! Network, with a Corona and a shot of 4 Copas Reposado 100% Organic Tequila (a pretty fuckin' smooth shooting tequila), trying to relax and center myself, while praying for a catharsis from tonight's blog so I can get to sleep. Of course, I need to get a little deeper for that, and I don't see that happening just yet.

I've got to get my shit straight for tomorrow, since it's my only day before Tuesday to get all the errands in and buy incidental shit I'm gonna need for San Diego before we go.

P.S.: The tequila's working...


So much baseball!

I just finished watching all 4 Hours & 57 Minutes of the 2008 MLB All-Star Game. Longest game ever, literally. And I'm not quite ready to go to bed. I've been on a kick about shaving, lately, so I've been scouring the internet for resources about wet shaving and vendors who sell straight razors (including ebay). So, off I go.


Blogging, when I should be asleep.

Work in 7.5 hours. I'm wide awake, and there's Costa Mesa PD helicopters flying directly above my house. No wonder Dawnie has restless nights' sleep when she's home alone. I gotta get some sleep before my 7am wakeup-movethecar-takeWillytothedogpark-jumpintheshower-getyourclothesready-gobartend morning begins. Would I have it any other way, though? Of course not :)
