Right now I am so sated that I am having a difficult time coming up with something to write. We just got home after dinner at le Bistro Montage where I had gluten-free mac and cheese with roasted garlic and bacon. Mac and cheese is my favorite comfort food, and this version was particularly excellent.Continue reading “Day 54 of Project 365: Birthday treats.”
You genuflected outside the gothic cathedral the day after I got officially old. My nose was running and cold and I turned from the great grey edifice to see the only familiar face for miles. On that face, the expression I tried to capture: irreverent yet strangely penitent, maybe just tired from walking or overwhelmedContinue reading “A line, a wrinkle, a sigh, a sign.”
I learned a new acronym today: ICYMI (In Case You Missed It). For FunkyPlaid’s birthday last year, I enlisted the help of his wonderful friends and family all over the world to create a lip dub to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’”. ICYMI, here it is! It is a wet and chilly evening in Edinburgh, butContinue reading “That birthday lip dub again.”
Since I had so much fun doing this last year, I’m holding another virtual birthday party with streaming webcam and live chat starting at 10:00 GMT today. Hope to see you there!

Seven straight hours of cam-streaming and IRC-chatting, not to mention the rampant Facebook-wishing. But the party did not stop there. On Friday, my friends threw me a surprise party. Offline, even! It was glorious.Continue reading “That’s just nuts.”
It is my birthday today, and I would like to spend it in the company of my friends. Current technology can only go so far, but I am leveraging that little bit of it to celebrate it virtually with as many folks as possible. Since I am old, this is going to be old-school: startingContinue reading “Virtual Birthday Party!”
After most of a year of debating the exact method in which I would get in shape I was no closer to choosing one, let alone sticking with it. I had sampled a few different options and discarded most of them as impractical, prohibitively expensive, or both. All I could decide on was the factContinue reading “birthday gift”
On his birthday, I wax poetic on what FunkyPlaid has come to mean to me.
