Want to play a game?

Last night I had a dream I was in a reality show, where I was part of a group of people that had to survive a zombie attack, all the while maintaining the rules from the childhood playground game The Floor is Lava. We would scale buildings and sleep on the roof, run on walls [...]


Standing up for myself

All my life, I have been struggling against it. It’s there when I wake up, and when I go to bed. It’s with me when I look out the window, or when I turn on my television. I can feel it when I go to work, when I go to church, when I pay my [...]

Flights, Unicorns and Beer

I’m on my way to Charlotte NC to enjoy a man weekend with some friends from college. I was cutting it close with my flight time, but I thought I had it covered, but I ended up missing my flight by 7 mins. Not 5, not 10, 7. They were very clear on that. Up [...]

A quicker workout

Towards the end of my job with EPIX, I would use my time during lunch to workout. I liked freeing up my evenings and avoiding that after-work rush. But I always ended up taking about an hour and a half for my lunch break, so I had to stay that extra half an hour anyway. [...]


Flag football and Krussia

It’s football season baby, and that means fantasy football and flag football. BMG and I put a team together and played our first game tonight. It was great to get out and do something physically competitive, but we ended up with an L and lots of areas to improve. Luckily it’s a social league so [...]


Well, it’s off to DC again!

I had been planning, and hoping, to visit my good friend Josh in Bermuda this weekend, but it just didn’t work out. He’s expecting a baby girl end of October and I wanted to see him before and take advantage of his remaining free time. Plus it happens to the first anniversary of his marriage, [...]


Mound Ball

This past weekend I went to DC to enjoy the 2nd annual Cousin’s Outing. We played golf, went to a Yankees/Orioles game in Baltimore, ate at an amazing Italian restaurant, had an epic bowling competition and then golfed again. All during hurricane Irene. I had a ton of fun, but what I looked forward to the [...]

anniversary drinks


GF and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary on June 19th. It was beautiful on Saturday so we took out our bikes, pumped up the tires and headed to Red Hook to grab some food and drinks. I haven’t ventured into west Brooklyn on bike yet, so it was great to ride around Cobble Hill, Carroll [...]


This. Is. Brooklyn!!!

GF and I were about to sit down for a nice leftover pasta dinner when I noticed something crawling on the ceiling. The Cockroach was slowly moving its way from the brick wall to the kitchen, and the 5 seconds I saw it before GF enabled me to get in position to grab the thickest home [...]
