My flowers are wilting.

No, that’s not a euphemism.

We received a lovely pot of blooming flowers as a housewarming gift, and they’re starting to droop. I have no idea what kind of flowers they are. I’m searching endlessly on the web to try to identfy them. I’d take a picture, but (a) I’m lazy right now and (b) I don’t want to take a picture of them when they’re in this state because it doesn’t show their true appearance.

Forgive me, I’m no horticulturist. The flowers are pink and white and look kinda ruffly. Almost hibiscus-like. The leaves are short and almond-shaped.

Anyone? Bueller?

The Light

I think we’re almost in the clear…

The house we moved into is looking less and less like a warehouse, and more and more like a home. Less boxes, more personal items… less stress and more sleep. The light at the end of the tunnel is near.

We finally got our internet access up and running. We had initially ordered DSL… but on the day of installation, somewhere past four o’clock in the afternoon, we receive a call saying they cannot install it since we are “too far from the central office”.


Anyways, that’s what took me so long. I should be back on a more normal blogging schedule again soon.

Oh yeah, and I did NOT get to see “Gigantic”. Grr. It sold out before I was able to get online to snag tickets. Double Grr.

Since I haven’t been online in a few weeks, I don’t think I have much to share in the way of links.

Well, maybe just BonsaiKitten.

It's Gigantic!

17 May 2002 is an important day.

No, it’s not just Bob Saget’s Birthday!

The 17th is the day of the West Coast Premiere of “Gigantic”! For those of you not in the know, “Gigantic” is a documentary film all about my favorite band of all time, They Might Be Giants!

The premiere is during the 2002 Docfest in San Francisco. More specifically, at Studio Z (formerly the Transmission Theater) 314 – 11th Street at Folsom.

Be there or be square.

Oh, and if you *are* there, let me know. We’ll go get some pie or something.
