In 1999, I had been working for an animation studio for just over half a year. The Cartoon Network had been doing a campaign with us that ended over Christmas, and although they threw us a fantastic open bar party, my old friend Brian accurately described it as a parting gift. The work dried up, […]

It’s no secret that my company announced in a press release Monday that there would be layoffs. On Friday night I went to not one but two parties to try to cheer myself up, though I’m afraid it didn’t last through the weekend. Last year about 25 people moved from Seattle to Orlando to work […]

An oddity about Seattle is how much they love their fireworks. I have a strong hunch that most of what is being shot off outside the house is not legal, but that isn’t stopping anyone. Rockets are being lit everywhere. I plan to spend the Fourth in Bellingham this year. When I lived there, around […]

It was sunny yesterday afternoon, so we leashed up the dog and walked over to the park. Scott had bought an extra long yard leash so we tied the dog up to a tree and tossed a frisbee around. Moose got underfoot and ate grass. Then we walked down the street to Arby’s and I […]
