Parrots living in a utility pole? Eh.. Parrots living in NYC? Hmm... Parrots living in a utility pole IN NYC? In November? WTF????

This is totally mind boggling. Congratulations, Niell, Tanya and Anthony.

By Wednesday, conditions became downright spectacular.

Tuesday, November 25, 2008


Conditions were really shitty, so I suppose I should post the picture of the jackasses that beat us on Saturday. :) Just kidding--it was a lot more fun and much harder than it would have been without Sean and Trevor. And then it wouldn't be racing. Thanks for the race, guys.

And just like that... it's gone. Though it's mostly melted now, it's still the first freeze. Should be fine for tomorrow am, I think.

A fitting tribute to my favorite chocoholic. Margs, I really wish you were here for this. You would have really had a blast. Five and a half pounds of chocolate will never be put to better use. You were fondly remembered, and will be greatly missed by all who were there. And there were a LOT of people there--you sure did pack a room. Two, actually. I just wish you were there to see it, and the room was packed for a very different reason.

Also, thank you to my brother Alex, Pete, John P., John W., Amelia, Miranda, Claire, Eugene, Becca and Gary for either helping out with the baking/chocolate making here, baking on their own, providing recipes, or bringing cakes all the way from NYC.

Today was not like this at all.

I wasn't there to see the car that went into the Charles today. But if I was, I bet I'd see those guys. This one's for you, Anna.

Totally gratuitous Pete-o-graphy.

This was taken right next to the swing dock at RBC, at 9:30 this morning.

The fall speed order is a VERY serious regatta.

Bike for Igor, boat for Pete, fun for everyone!

Amazingly enough, this was also taken on the Charles--at the Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley, MA.

And sometimes, the blog post just really jumps out at you. :)

Pete says--"I love lamp. Also, the Resolute."

Fun with animated GIFs. More fun than Friday and first half of Saturday. Hey Cam.. Oh, never mind. :)

To Margaret's wake on Friday and coming back from her funeral Saturday. Kind of a weird yin-yang thing going on. Except the whole concept of having to make such a trip sucks.

There's rowing at the Met! I'd have more, but then the security guy told me that I wasn't allowed to use the flash. Also, they ran out of the rowing poster. (The exhibit was British Prints between the two world wars).

Some fall foliage by Weeks. Off to NYC/PA for the rest of the week. Cheerio.

Monday, November 03, 2008


I personally think I deserved to give me a present.

Oh yeah, PBC was thing weekend, Sean and Heather won, yaaaaaawwwwnnnn...

Nice catch, Aleks. Really, really, really nice catch.
