Aloha ...

I fly off to Honolulu tomorrow for the marathon! Very psyched, very nervous. Please think some good thoughts and send some positive vibes my way on sunday morning anytime between 10am and 3pm buffalo time! If I don't make it home by next wednesday that means: HELP- I can't walk and I'm stuck on the beach with a Mai-Tai in my hand--feel free to fly out to Hawaii and rescue me. I'm planning on loafing at the Korean spa in K town next week then flying back to cold-a-lo for a surprise visit to me mommy. See you all again soon, I'll be around Xmas eve for a week or so. Aloha again but with the opposite meaning.

Home sweet home

Home again, home again jiggidy jig! Does anyone know of where i can score a giant stuffed orange banana? This was one of my favorite toys as a child and I kind of want one. I just wrote a very well thought out and insightful journal and it got eaten up by my dad's compputer. So, more later. I'm happy to be home and once again railroading around the old stomping grounds. But, I have yet to make it to the old pink. We'll see what tonight brings.

LAX

I'm about to be waiting in line for a while at LAX airport. They are coming out with a new TV drama about LAX with Heather Locklear. Something like Law and Order meets Melrose place in the airport setting. Yuck, I'm over TV! So I'm flying home tonight, can't wait to see everyone. Looking forward to the Turkey trot and to the turkey dinner with both families! Kind of nice to come home to the cold and quiet cozyness of Buffalo in the late fall. I may be heading out to the old pink tonight for one single drink! I fly in at midnight then tomorrow morning is anearly run so it won't be the crazyiest of nights. For more action and adventure buffalo style tune in on Friday or Saturday night! Hope to see some epeeps out! I'll be in contact with Rachel if anyone is interested in meeting out. See you soon!

Bleakest of times

Upset doesn't quite describe it! I am truly ashamed to be an American today. The only thing positive I can think of is that sometimes it takes the bleakest of times to inspire a radical social change. I am greatly disturbed that America needs 4 more years of unchecked greed, ignorance, fear and intolerance to (hopefully) jolt it into social change. What opportunity is fate dealing us here, somebody please tell me!

Run-derland

Just did my first 23 mile run and am awaiting the onset of severe soreness! But feelin pretty good for now. Next mission for today is the halloween costume. My boyfriend and about 10 others are meeting up in San Fran next weekend for the festivities. Twisted - if you are out that way and see the cast of Alice in Wonderland in the Castro come and say hello! I am the Hukah smoking purple caterpillar in the spectacles! Will be cavorting with the white rabbit, tweedle dee and dumb, a bunch of cards, the mad hatter and of course Alice! Whats happening on elmwood for Halloween anything special, I sure epeeps should be up to something fun! --Wish I was home, see you all for Thanksgiving!

So-Cal Lo-Cal

J3sse: I'll see what I can do. Also if you're serious about the Turkey trot I'm a way slow runner (about 10 minbute miles plus) so don't let the mileage scare you, join us if you wish. I'm also running with a friend who swears she hasn't jogged in about 6 months so no worries! Then you can gobble up as much turkey as you can eat later guilt free!
Hodown: Codypommeray is in your neck of the woods, and a very cool guy I might add, so sheck out his journal.
Stephenjames: yeah! I am rooting for you to move to the west side, much less hipster and more hippy-ster, very relaxing in a so-cal way. I am a huge fan, however I do admit it can present as a bit yuppied out as far as yoga moms walking their poodles go. Good luck with your roomate situation. If you are looking seriously to move to the westside, I have a friend who is looking to move by Novermber 1st and may need a roomate. (although I think he's toying with the idea of living solo after one of his own previously not-so-hot roomate experiences) He is definitely very cool and low maintenance. Check out his blog at: . I have a few seach codes for those housing assistance sites to share if you need. Let me know I can email them to you. I have one for westsidereantals and 4rentsinLA.

J3sse

OK whats the TJ's 2 buck chuck of your choice? I'm headed back to Buffalo for thanksgiving. Who else is on the west cost besides StephenJames? Interesting how you can be simultaneously enjoying a Pacific Coast sunset on a warm fall evening and still be missing home. Looking forward to coming home soon!

out or in?

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
--Anais Nin

I'm contemplating this in conjunction with the endless opportunity and possibility for meeting new people in this city. Makes you wonder what your missing on those nights you stay home.
