Trashy blonde at the bar shows me a picture of her in her uniform, like I wouldn't believe she was a strip-club waitress. Never a dull moment around here.

Guy, my beloved Stoner Poodle has not drunk or eaten anything for two days.He cannot lift his head, much less get off the couch.

Poor dude, I loved him so much for so long, its going to be very hard to put him down this afternoon, but I know its the right thing to do.

Why do dog deaths make me cry so ####### much?

Send him kind thoughts on his way out and burn one in his honor tonight.

He had a great life and lived longer than most poodles, so there should be few regrets. But there are.

Goodbye dear friend. Say hi to my sister and my dad.

Currently at an Urgent Care place to hopefully remove the copious amount of earwax currently jamming up my right ear. Tried drops and a bunch of other crap for the last week and nothing has worked. This place is scary.

I’d escape because  mine couldn’t take less than 5 minutes to tell me she going to kill me and I would have already figured that out about 10 seconds in.

####. More awful news.

I met with a couple last October for a financial review. They brought their two young kids along to my office.

I suggested that they should seriously look into life insurance. The wife thought it was a good idea to protect the kids, but he thought $35/month combined for two term policies was too much of a burden on their budget, which it wasn’t.  Needless to say they walked out of the office without it and ignored my other advice too. I followed up with them afterwards to see if they had a change of heart and she said he did, but “now wasn’t the right time”. I have bigger fish to fry, so I moved on and figured they would call me if/when they are ready.

Today I get a call from the wife’s sister because I was on her calendar as a reminder to call about life insurance. She asks if she can report a claim, and I told her that they decided not to do anything. She broke down and cried for what felt like 15 minutes as my heart sank.

Turns out the husband got belligerent drunk while the wife was out of the house with the son, and the daughter was on the phone with her scared. The wife told the daughter to lock herself in her bedroom until she got home and then she would drive them to the grandparents. Wife walked in and the husband stabbed her to death in front of the daughter before fleeing the scene and abandoning the kids. He got arrested and is charged with murder and abandoning the children.

First my old next door neighbor charged with murder for stabbing someone to death, and now this and they happened only days apart. All I can think of is those kids sitting in my office and what that girl must be going through now. She is going to need a lifetime of counseling. I’ve been physically ill since I got that call this afternoon. :(

Holy ####..  nothing on TV, so I'm watching my first college hoops game of the year.  AZ vs USC.   And Bill Walton is blazed to the max talking all sorts of nonsense.

ETA:  The more I think about it, he might of been on acid.

Talking to the other announcer:
"I don't even know what your name is."
"I like flowers."
"I have no idea who Dak Prescott is."

There were about a dozen more of these.  Should have taped it. Main announcer was laughing hard when then game ended.

There was a guy with the last name of Anderson on AZ.  I can't remember his first name.  I'll call him Mark.  "Mark Anderson, not to be confused with Ian Anderson....."

Confession time: whenever I listen to a podcast, even really good ones, I fall asleep five minutes in. Something about the soothing sounds of talking, or maybe this is how my age manifests itself.

any time Walton is on the call, i tap out immediately.  can't stand this shtick.

just analyze the game and let the conversation happen organically. he tries to make the broadcast about himself, bloviating on whatever stream of consciousness that pops in to his head in the moment.

It's really helpful if you're just as blazed as Walton, so you can achieve the same vibration.

Caliendo was on with him during a game last week.  I'm sure there are clips of it floating around the internet.  Caliendo was great.

Email of the week!

P:

I recently became a new father. A baby boy. He's tall and skinny, but he's healthy. I love him. He's great. I'm a chef (I hate this term, but it's what people call what I do) but I don't think you need to be one to have a constant and pervading question when you're holding your child: How would I cook this little nugget? My first inclination is roasting him slow as a whole piece of meat. Simple seasoning I think would be key. My first thought was a kind of clam bake with corn, potatoes, and lobsters. My wife suggested a lau lau style wrapping him up in taro leaves or in banana leaves. But I also think that maybe taking advantage of his tenderness would also make sense. Quickly seared cutlets or even some sashimi. Thoughts?

I think spit-roasting would be the move. Like a suckling pig. That way you get a nice crackle on the skin. Now that's good baby!

South Beach deco tour?

Reenact la cage aux folles movie version?

I know very nothing about that place other than it's warm and a city on a beach, which seems like a good idea other than Florida stuff and stuff.

Can you go north of Miami bc Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach is pretty cool. I couldn’t wait to get out of Miami after my concert in January fwiw. I thought South Beach was a toilet (architecture aside). You could go down to Key Largo too. Sitting around and drinking is cool.

Meh. On a calm, sunny day where the water around Miami isn't deep (doesn't go out in the ocean....stays near the shallow waters by the mansions), I think the risk is quite low.

I enjoyed it.

Only there one full day, no car, so the driving places are out.  Just booked the Little Havana food tour that was linked above.  👍 Definitely have to see the Art Deco stuff for my mom, too, but sounds like we wouldn’t spend long on it.

Do you go back to a restaurant a third time if the first two experiences were split?

We went to a Korean BBQ place a few weeks back and it was fantastic.  Great service, very tasty food, good cuts of steak, etc etc.  This was on a Friday or a Saturday.  Went back a second time recently on a weekday night and it was a major let down.  We had slower service, worse food, etc.

Was it a weekday vs. weekend type of thing?

Do you try a place again if the first two times were hit and miss?

yeah, depends on how good the first was vs. how bad the second.

if first was exceptional and 2nd was a bit of a letdown, i'll go back.

if first was good, but 2nd was a total disaster and i'm left with a bad taste (literally and figuratively), then probably not returning.

I like my job. But I'm ready for my looming retirement (March 19). I've been having disturbing dreams this week, far too many of which involve my previous employment. Separation anxiety? Am I no better than my mom's schnauzer, who craps all over the place whenever left alone for an hour? Will bostonfred be in here soon to analyze my dreams as proof yet again of my latent homosexuality?

I realized over the weekend that when I engage people asking for money (homeless or otherwise), I always reply with "buddy" but for other people who aren't asking for money, I either say "ma'am" or "sir" or skip it. 

"buddy"... like they're pets. I know it's not as nefarious as that... but occurred to me that my response shouldn't be any different regardless.

 

that is all.

both of my projects are in major lull/non-architect energy needed right now. so I've done #### all today.
