I went to the Sasakwa vs. Varnum games tonight, at Sasakwa. Ah, my heart is torn. Varnum is where my mother graduated high school, but Sasakwa is where I have so many friends! At least one of the games was exciting. The girls took their game into double-overtime, with Varnum finally winning. I’m proud of[…]
Hello, everyone! I think this is the first time in many months that I skipped more than 24 hours without posting to my blog. :-) That’s okay; I’ve been busy. But I didn’t go anywhere. I’m still kind of glowing with excitement from having covered the NBA game Wednesday night, and can’t wait till my[…]
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! That’s right; it’s 1:45 a.m., and I haven’t gone to sleep yet. I just finished formatting and uploading a few pictures from my first-ever NBA game. I’m a little too excited to drop right into bed. :-) (Copyright © 2005 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)
this will be short. had a long one. it went away. crap. did a lot of stuff, but ain’t gonna type it again. there were links too. it was fun and tiring. frustrating. there are some new pics on my flickr.
I just finished watching “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and now I’m listening to The Verve, so you can imagine the weird, introspective mood I’m in. Wondering about the past, pensive about the future, not sure if I should go to sleep just yet. That movie reminds me of my paranoid days (the 1990s)[…]
This is the lens I think I want to save for. It’s a Canon 70-200mm f2.8. It has almost as much reach as my 75-300mm, but a much lower “f-stop,” which allows more light into the sensor. What this means is that I can use much higher shutter speeds in lower-light situations, getting more crisp[…]
Well, Varnum beat Earlsboro; yes, my mother’s alma mater took out the team that recently won a game by 110 points. But that was last night. Tonight, Seminole High School’s Chieftains football team ended their season, losing to Cascia Hall (a rich private school) 14-9. The Chiefs scored first, and led in the third quarter,[…]
Okay, when I say don’t tell me something, that’s what I mean. But Marline went ahead and told me that she would consider buying such a handbag (see last post). :-) Two different points of view, I guess. I just don’t want to be a part of such a scam (put a name on the[…]
Yes, I turned to the Internet for help in picking out a Christmas gift for my mother this year. Is there a harder person to buy for in the whole wide world? I doubt it. There is really no one to whom I owe so much (my very LIFE!), but who needs so little. An[…]
They’re saying it’ll be 26ºF here in the morning! I LOVE COLD WEATHER. I like wearing coats, gloves, etc. I like huddling around the heater vent, or piling on blankets. Wow, I’ve been saying it all summer… I’ve been waiting for this weather. Finally! (Can you tell I’m excited?) I just hope it snows or[…]
Couldn’t help but post this, for my friends on the East and West coasts (and in case someone from Europe or Japan reads this.) (Copyright © 2005 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) It’s finally back under $2 per gallon (but just barely). I can live with this, but I’d sure drive a lot[…]
Busy day. Aren’t they all busy? Seems like it. My days off (Sunday and Monday) seemed to fly by in a few minutes, and a I got very little accomplished. No, I’ll take that back. A few household chores were taken care of, and I spent several glorious hours communicating (“conversating,” as the kids say[…]
Ants Eat Woman’s Eye (Reuters) This is just plain disgusting. Think about it next time you’re in the hospital. Today, it was cooler here in Seminole than in NYC, and I think both places are having very odd weather for this time of year. Can the strangeness last? We’ll see. Maybe we’ll have 100-degree days[…]
EDIT: Bill & Cassie, MSN wouldn’t let me sign in tonight. I read your story, Bill, which sounded amazing… I’m sure you probably have a hundred others. I was going to comment, but, as I said, MSN wasn’t being friendly (it rarely is to users of the Mozilla Firefox browser). Do you know those weird[…]
I think I’m under attack by SBC (my phone company). They used to call me every Sunday and Monday, trying to get me to switch my long distance to SBC, or trying to get me to buy a “package” of services like Caller ID, Call Waiting, etc. I never bit, so they finally stopped calling.[…]

Today began with a trip to Ada, Oklahoma, where I attended a VFW event which honored older veterans with the awarding of earned medals that they’d never received.

This is a story you HAVE to read. Girl goes to work. Manager calls girl into office. Girl is then strip-searched, molested, etc. AT McDONALD’s! The manager said a cop on the phone was telling her to do these things to the girl. Other people witnessed it. It was videotaped. And, apparently, it happened more[…]
Today is the 77th anniversary of the crowning of Emperor Hirohita of Japan. Also, today is the 230th anniversary of the U.S. Marine Corps‘ beginning. Interesting stuff. For more, click here.
