three days away

I am three days away from boarding a plane to Amsterdam! I can’t even tell you how excited I am and how I’ve been waiting for this vacation.  Over a drunken dinner, three ladies said they were going to plan a trip to Amsterdam and Paris, and by golly, within 2 weeks, they chose the …

(almost) mid-week randoms

Last Saturday, I ran the 5th Avenue Mile.  I did not do as well as I wanted to, but I at least did better than last year’s effort.  So, I guess it was a success.  I am noticing that my hammy’s are being little bitches these past couple weeks and I really need to stretch …

pushing myself to the finish

I had long ago signed up to do the Fitness Mind+Body+Spirit Games, which is an annual 4-mile race in Central Park.  This is what happened on Saturday morning. 4:05AM: Woke up.  I think it was the cat yakking up a fur ball that woke me up.  I got out of bed and in a zombie-like …

a little perspective always necessary

One morning in Starbucks, back in June, I saw someone who made me see things in a better perspective. As I opened the door to Starbucks, I saw a girl in a wheelchair kinda zoom in front of the door, which prevented me from immediately entering the store.  She said something to her friend who …

crazy is as crazy does

As I’m thinking more and more, I’m becoming acutely aware that as I bring to light the essence of being that is Asshat, I am coming across as the craziest mo-fo on earth.  Because I would clearly have to be certifiable to have lasted 15 months with this person, whose portrait I paint so vividly. …

my take on being adopted

Originally written in June… This past Sunday was Father’s Day.  I didn’t spend it celebrating it.  At.  All. I suppose I technically have a father…my adoptive father.  But as far as I’m concerned and my brothers are concerned, he’s dead to us and can rot in hell.  That may seem exceptionally harsh.  But it’s really …
