We Are All Matt Damon Now

Greetings from the Quarantimes… So — things are changing quickly. Were restaurants already takeout and delivery only when I posted yesterday? Who can remember? Anyway — sometime AFTER I posted, all gyms, movie theaters, etc were declared closed until March 31st in Los Angeles. (ClassPass is being very cool about all this, gym-wise.) Los Angeles is a tough place to keep a restaurant afloat, and … Continue reading We Are All Matt Damon Now

Everything’s (Not) Happening

Hi everybody. Wow. It’s been a minute. Well, it’s been a few months but it might as well have been a few decades. Every day is a long time lately. My job wrapped up right before Thanksgiving, and Sam and I decided to take a quick post-turkey trip to Maui. Right before we left, Sam Adams took a real turn in the kidney department. On … Continue reading Everything’s (Not) Happening

But no hard feelings, Paris. So it took me a few weeks to hit the blog with news of our trip, because I was still processing and feeling unwell. … Continue reading Paris, J’Barfed [Travel Recap]

MOMENTS: A Cheesy Little Mystery

Today is quite likely our last day with Annie, our blind foster dog. She’s starting a trial tonight in Huntington Beach! Crazy enough, her brother (Sully) is also starting a trial tonight in our neighborhood. They’re separate, but still synced. (Much as my fostering FAQ outlined, everybody wanted us to keep her. Sorry not sorry. We enjoyed her presence, though! She and Charlie had a … Continue reading MOMENTS: A Cheesy Little Mystery

Annie Hears A Symphony

As I began to type this, our little blind foster, Annie, started scratching my back very sweetly… and then (I’m pretty sure) commenced a hump-from-behind. And then I realized that she needed her donut (like a cone, but also like a first-class traveler’s neck pillow), because she was licking at her spay stitches, and chased her around the room… with Charlie trying to interfere because … Continue reading Annie Hears A Symphony
