Ask vs Guess

I stumbled upon this discussion today where someone brings up the difference between people raised in an "Ask Culture" or a "Guess Culture". I like this thought it explains behavior that cause most roommate fights. I also think that regardless of if a person is an asker or a guesser, people will be in different places in their personality and will be more or less amenable to the two different forms of behavior.

It was written in response to someo…

Moving Day

Updating has been difficult lately. Mostly because I've moved! I'm now about 5 blocks further away from the hosue I grew up in. Every year I seem to go 5 more blocks down 8th ave.Getting all of our stuff into this new house was a chore. Andrew and myself have just a tad too many things to throw in a bag and deliver to a new homestead. It would have been an impossible task if it weren't for a few friends who showed up in the nick of time to lend …

Random Image FB

I had a brief lived application on facebook. It mostly worked right and would load all your photos and put them in a big FB random tag and stick it on your profile. I had it upgraded by Koudelka who played around with Facebook's javascript subset and got a little Ajaxy (+) link that would load a new photo. After that I ignored it. =)

Until it broke, and you had to hit the + to get a photo at all.

It was shitty hack. Code that was never planed.  I…

23 year old Throwies Part 1

So this past weekend I celebrated my 23rd birthday. I had a lot of fun.
birthday bag all lit up
Normally I plan a party like this.

1) Pick a day (and forget to tell people right away)
2) Find a venue (my house, your house, whatever)
3) Add people
4) Add music
5) Add beer
6) (optional) Add hard liquor

And no matter what, as long as there are people + beer + music people seem to have a good time. Honestly I never though Id ever throw parties, but it's worked out quite ni…

Dear Roborooter.

I am at sarah's. She is cool, and my girlfriend. She loves me. And wine. but maybe not as much as I love wine.


(that's sarah's laugh)

We just spend some time reading her old diaries from 1992, she says lots about herself from back then. Bad speller, angsty, named her diary chi-chi. It's interesting. I used to write stories about kids who had aliens kill them and then the ambulance would come and the doctors would bring them back to life.…

Sarah's Birthday

Much fun.

I'll write something later, this is just to remind me that I want to.

And it's public because... you should know it was much fun. =D


About as easy to find as a size 14 shoe

I spent yesterday walking around manhattan with my friend Brian looking for (among other things) size 14 shoes. Manhattan doesn't carry them. In fact most places don't carry size 14 shoes, they carry up to size 13. I'm a 12 personally, so when I goto a store looking for shoes I look for a shoe I like and try to find it in my size, Brian has to look for his size and then see if it's a shoe he likes. It's crazy.

So we went to the internet instead. …

They're opening up a commerce bank down the block.

I'm happy about the commerce bank being built down the block. The private parking lot was nice and all, and I did enjoy looking at the converted pig box that used to serve as a delivery.. vehicle, but I think the bank will be a lot more useful. I'll be able to walk down the block to count my change for free. (oh and do banking and things)

I was looking for a link on the penny arcades but I found nothing that just showed what it was (it counts the…

Stop All The Downloads

I did a 180 in the space of one and a half lanes. I love driving in light snow. Not hellish deep snow I vowed never to drive again with (at all ever noun noun verb noun).

By the way a 180 being a U-Turn.

I had my 21st birthday the other night and people are still staying over at my house to go home monday morning. This has been a really good birthday, complete with a Chinese dinner I don't remember, pool, Jazz, ping pong, a wonderful italian dinn…

Fred, not dropping dead but standing tall.

My friends are awesome. Jenny Caroline My Self and Jason had a brief but sweet christmas celebration the other day. They got me a tree.
We named it Fred.

Next year we're going to have a star on top to add to the ornaments we decorated. I'd like to get one of those paper like ones with light inside. I couldn't find a picture of what I want but I did find some other stars that while looking nothing like what I'm referring to are really cool and ca…

Thought provoking vs. Slapstick

So like... Emily Vs. Brian, or something to that effect.

The point is, Brian gets more comments. And I hate to say its because people are lazy but... yea people are lazy. It's easier to respond to something stupid then to something that makes you think.

(Frank keeps asking "What's with your friends?")

But I understand you, you're suffering from malnutrition, sleep depravation, undue stress, and your lazy. It's ok though, I'm those things too.


Alive and kicking.

I'm tired.

But its well deserved.

Sort of.

So I got up today and went to work. I took a cab because I was late. I had a 3:30 appointment that got rescheduled for 11:30 but some stroke of luck I had arrived at 11:10 - early. Spring and Greenwich (near the west side drive) isn't that far from brooklyn. Someone let me in the building and I took the old freight elevator upstairs. The entire office building used to be some industrial something or othe… © 2024
