ron artest is a role model

of the lakersmore people should be like ron artest.

thats what i learned today.

also, its great to have really good friends.

also, donald trump has poise.

had an interesting conversation over lunch about the difference between hemingway and bukowski.

finally it rained here in LA.

i havent had christmas lights in my bedroom in years and i gotta say, theyre wonderful.

im going to the dentist tomorrow.

thats my camera right next to ron ron

ron isnt as tall as i thought hed be. tall sure, but not kareem but god, so nice.


weird, sad day yesterday

and because there are some things that i dont talk about regarding the xbi lets just say i was in a little bit of shock when it went down.

fortunately i was able to regroup with my team and we had a really good postmortem.

communication among the team has never been a problem. we’ve definately got that going.

regardless, i almost cried. then i almost cried when i got home.

sometimes when im in a mood like that i just like to wake up early and drive around and take pictures of trees.

the only constant in life is change.

i will say this though, when i got home eating didnt cheer me up but two things did. one nice, one not so nice.

the nice thing was ali was really supportive via gchat.

the not so nice thing, that helped, was i had a cigarette.

the one thing the xbi has been trying me to do for ever.
