Last night, I didn’t get much sleep due to a splitting headache. I thought I was going to die. This was odd, since I usually don’t get headaches — I don’t have migraines, or anything like that. I took Tylenol, and I writhed in pain, literally whimpering as I tried to get to sleep. But[…]
For the first time in my life, I was inspired to contact the Better Business Bureau . It was over a subscription issue with a magazine. I should have learned the first time that it’s near-impossible to cancel a subscription, no matter who started it. A few years ago, some still-unknown “friend” or relative hooked[…]

As requested, I’ve also reviewed “Thank You for Smoking”. I won’t give it as high a mark as I gave “V for Vendetta,” which was a MUST SEE, but “Thank You” IS really hilarious, and probably worth a watch, if you have a well-developed sense of humor. EDIT: My Flickr Photostream has now been viewed[…]
As I may have mentioned previously, I saw “V for Vendetta” while visiting New York a week or so ago. I absolutely loved this movie. To read the review I’ve written, click here.
Try out this “April Fool” Quiz , which is in places poorly typed, but it’s fun nonetheless. I got the link from my cousin Cassie , and I scored 10 out of 15. I’d actually heard of some of these things. ——————————— EDIT: Cassie, I tried to leave a comment on your site. It lets[…]
Click here to read the story I wrote today about a local police department having to attack a group of skunks. Yes, I said skunks. AND, if you haven’t seen them yet, check out the pictures I took in New York City, either by viewing my NYC photoset, or my Flickr Photostream .
CHAPTER FOUR My Time With Marline (Author’s Note: I saved this chapter till last because I felt it was the most important part of my experience in New York City.) The thought hit me like a lightning bolt. The next time I see the woman I love, she’ll be moving in with me for good.[…]
CHAPTER THREE (Of the continuing saga of my week-long visit to New York City) The Little Differences The only reason anyone travels anywhere is because of the differences. If every place in the world were exactly the same, there would be no reason to go anywhere. But the big differences are usually obvious, and don’t[…]
CHAPTER TWO The City New York City ( official site ) has been called “The Capital of the World,” and more than most other cities, it can put up a good argument for such a title. Not only is it the headquarters of the infamous United Nations (situated in Manhattan), but the centers of so[…]
CHAPTER ONE The Ride I don’t fly enough anymore to compare airlines or airports, but I’ll say that Delta was good to me for the most part. When, on March 12, 2006, I arrived early in the morning at OKC Will Rogers World Airport, it was my first time to do so with a plane[…]
I MADE IT HOME! This was exciting for me, though sad as well, much as Marline [invalid link removed] said on her blog [invalid link removed] . I plan a much longer post by the end of the day, and I also plan to catch up on some of your blogs too, some time today,[…]
Saturday, March 18, 2006: * laundry * aunt’s house (in Queens) * Saw “Thank You for Smoking” at Regal Cinemas (in The Village) Many thanks to Cassie, for reading each of these posts. They’re mainly for my own memory, and I hope to write a more thorough, fuller report when I return home. Sunday, March[…]
Friday, March 17, 2006 * St. Patrick’s Day parade on NYC’s famous Fifth Avenue — we watched it from 60th Street. Lots of green and white — I felt right at home, since those are Seminole’s school colors. The largest such parade in the world. * The Museum of the American Indian. Most of it[…]
March 16, Thursday: * Early on, went to Macy’s — the one in the Bronx; not the one on 34th that we’ve all heard off — and bought a nice button-up shirt, along with a belt and black tie. * Had my first frappacino (strawberries & creme), along with “madeleines.” YES, it was my first-ever[…]
Today, Marline took me to Pelham Parkway, a shopping district in The Bronx, where I bought a new wallet (at Rite-Aid). Then we went to The Bronx Zoo, which Marline told me was the largest zoo in the nation. It was great, except many of the outdoor animals weren’t on display because of the cool[…]
Tuesday, March 14 (itinerary): * Took the 22 bus to Bedford Park region of the Bronx, to see Marline’s alma mater, the Bronx H.S. of Science. * Walked to her old neighborhood in Bedford Park that she hadn’t lived in since she was 15 (that was in 1997). * Saw Marline’s Catholic elementary school (Our[…]
Just a short check-in. My plane from OKC to Atlanta was early (yesterday, Sunday the 12th), so I had plenty of time to eat, and then my plane from ATL to LaGuardia (New York City) was late, but not too bad. Marline was there waiting when I arrived. But my luggage was NOT there. It[…]
My computer says it’s now March 12 (Sunday), the early morning hours. Which means I’ll soon be waking up and getting on a jet plane. Leaving, like the song says. And in about 18 hours, I’ll be stepping off the sky vehicle and into the arms of my darling Marline. If there’s a better way[…]
That was yesterday. Tonight — Friday, that is — Wewoka’s Tigers lost in the State Semi-Final game, 62-57. I have much more to say, but I’m too dad-gum tired. Laters. ——————– EDIT: Oh, I almost forgot. My Flickr Photostream passed 30,000 views today! And one of my pictures has been viewed 3,600 times!
