Thoughts from Places: #SFNYE – posted on January 14th.

As we waited for the trolley to take us on an adventure.  I noticed that many people were waiting too.  They were all waiting for the forthcoming trolley.  Some waited in large groups while others waited alone.  But we all waited.  I can’t help but think that everyone was waiting for an adventure.  In life, we often wait for an adventure to come and take us away.  For some people, adventures comes often.  While others would wait until the can’t wait anymore and go elsewhere to wait, only to do the same a leave.  But many just wait until the adventure arrives, only to hop and go where it takes them.

The Parting of Ways – posted on August 31st.

You were the Doctor & I was your companion.  But at times I felt like the Doctor and you were my companion.  Either way, it is in the parting of the ways that we must now say goodbye.  There was much triumph and death during our time together, but that is to be expected when spending time with the Doctor.  Now, it is time to say goodbye. It is the journey’s end, but know that I will always turn left.

The Little Things – posted November 20th.

After the simple and ever so beautiful wedding of my dear friend Jo, I boarded the shuttle bus to the reception. Sitting across the aisle from me, I struck a conversation with them. I was alone. I should probably try to be social. I found out that they were related to the bride. As for them, I used my joke of the night on them, “Contrary to popular belief, I’m not related to the bride.” See, the bride is half Filipino and there were a lot of Asians present; especially little old Asian women, they were out in full force. They laughed and found out I was a friend from college.

Klout Perks Gave Me a Chevy Volt! – posted on September 6th.

A couple weekends ago, Klout Perks hooked me up with a Chevy Volt.  I asked you guys what you wanted me to do and I did it.  Watch the video for me having a girl in the back seat, driving 0-60 and pulling a green drive-thru prank.

No Pants Subway Ride 2011 – posted on January 10th.

Yesterday, NicoleMarieSays & I braved the cold (though technically it was a heat wave compared to last year) temperatures and participated in the no pants subway ride in Chicago.  You know you want to click to see some sexy legs.

How to be Irish on St. Patrick’s Day – posted on March 16th.

Seeing how I’m an honorary Irish, I decided to go around Chicago and ask all minorities and non-Irish people how one can be Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.  Let’s just say there was a lot of hilarity.

Can I Touch It? – posted on January 18th.

Anyways, so there I was waiting for the light to turn green and bored out of my mind when I noticed the median.  I still had another 30 seconds to burn and my car was close enough to the median that I could touch it.  Could, but can I actually touch it?  And so, I put my left arm outside the window and leaned over.  Almost.  Just about.  And no.  Alas, I was just an inch too short.  (TWSS).

Jet Fuel Excites Me – posted on May 27th.

Luggage at my side, I stare down the empty block before me where my apartment resides.  It was not long ago when my alarm woke me up at the ungodly but familiar hour of 4.  Waking up a 4 AM to embark on my next adventure has become quite the past time.

This is Not Weird at All – posted on December 1st.

“You’re short!” She said.

“You’re tall!” I replied.

Great first words for meeting for the first time. We hugged again just to make sure that this was real. It was. Phampants & Tezzitoo together at last.

“This is not weird at all.” Terri said. I couldn’t agree more.
