Last night was my first time in a laundromat in over 7 years.

It wasn't horrible.

But you mentioned a nicer, cleaner laundromat near the apartment.

Can you tell me where that one is?

It's kind of a drag to watch drunk homeless men go through the trash while you're waiting for your clothes to dry.

post writing

okay what's up with totally normal looking crazy people?

i just got done watching a moving about war and bombs and then i took jake out for a walk. 1/2 way through i noticed a woman standing behind a post. it looked like she was writing something. she saw me looking at her and ran away like a rabbit. hopping. literally. then i crossed the street and turned to look again. i saw her running back to the post, this time wobbling back and forth like a monkey. then she disappeared. i felt like i was in war for a second. like someone was planting a bomb and that i needed to run.

what's wrong with this picture?


i took this for yesterdays post when dropping the boy off to get his nuts chopped.

christopher's ball memorial spot: DUMBO

clean mission

This is not my photo. I stole it from here. There's something about it I just love. I wonder if it will make you miss this place.

to do

i bought this for the apartment today.

i think it will go right next to the front door, in that same spot where your key holder used to hang.

morning commute

these are the stairs i walk down right outside my house. today there was ice frozen to the wall. the weather man says "feels like" 7 degrees outside.

this is the view on my way into work. there are three stops that i get to see the world.

last stop. 42nd street. here's where i get off.

For Christopher, who only has a week left with his balls.

Sorry little man. Enjoy them while you have them and be sure to rub them on as many of Chris's things as you can in the next few days.

my feet are tired

and they hurt. that's all i got. oh, and christophers balls are being chopped off this saturday.


my first bath in the new apartment.

it was awesome.

why did i wait 33 years to live alone??

also? today it was colder here then it was in NY. of course winter finally hits in San Francisco after you leave.

east coast weather

it snowed here today. i didn't get a picture of it so you'll just have to take my word for it. you trust my word don't you?

new phone

could you tell when we talked today that i had a new phone?

this also means a new camera - still crappy but better than the last one. it will do until i get a proper camera.

stay warm and keep Christopher of the furniture.

i had a dream

i had a dream last night that i was back in ca, driving on the 80 headed to the east bay. some familiar guy was driving and all i could do was stare at the teal green water pushing gently on either side of the road. it was tropical seeming. it was amazing. the only thing i could think about was that when i was there i didn't pay enough attention to this amazing water.

heavy boots

there is a mountain of boxes in front of me. my life in san francisco. it's all just sitting here. waiting. for something.

i'm nervous that once i start to open them that things will really begin to change. i'm not sure i'm ready yet. when are you coming to visit?


i found this while cleaning out the old apartment.

look at how fresh and young we look here. we were babies back then.

first week in NY. yes, i got towed. total you ask? $260.

new local

we christened my new local bar last night - recognize the place?

note to self: they pour very strong drinks, which can be a bad thing on a school night.
