Staying in a house

I arrived at Amy’s on Saturday in anticipation of flying from SFO to PHL with her the following Thursday night. There we’d attend a family wedding. With Walden largely incapacitated by his oil leak, I cooled my heels out in … Continue reading

SFO to PHL

After we arrived at the airport, at about 9:00pm, Amy contrived to re-organize her bags so that she could carry them all on rather than pay the exorbitant fees that airlines now charge for checking baggage. These fees confuse me. … Continue reading

Wedding Festivities

After our nap in the hotel room, we had to run back to the airport to pick up Mommalou. Google’s directions were not very easy to follow, but we made it there anyway and after some difficulty managed to add … Continue reading

Snakes on a plane

The day after the wedding we all went to my aunt’s house for brunch until it was time to head to the airport. We got directions from the locals, who claimed that Google’s route was inferior. We somehow again failed … Continue reading

Toronado, or sleeping on the streets of San Francisco

My cousin had identified someone in San Francisco whom she thought I should meet. A woman. This seemed like a fine idea to me. It took a handful of emails over a course of months, as the original plan was … Continue reading

Peanuts for Dinner

I woke up in Walden parked on Haight street to the sound of garbage trucks. It took me back to one of the first nights that I spent in Vermont when moving from Hoboken, NJ. We’d stayed the night in … Continue reading

Free Lunch

I woke up at D’s house and he and I got moving pretty early, since he has a job and everything. I’ve been continually annoyed that people I visit have jobs. I’ve often found it inconvenient. My activity for the … Continue reading

Sometimes I miss the poodle

I’m staying with friends that have cats, and we (I and the friends, not the cats) were discussing how different the trip would have been with Thor. I told them that Thor had a kitty, but they said that the … Continue reading

iLiveInYourHouse.com

I spent over a week in San Francisco staying at friend’s houses. I checked and iLiveInYourHouse.com is available. I almost registered it, but decided that the joke wasn’t worth $12 and 12 minutes. When the account that I assume has … Continue reading

On the Road Again, Again

This being the end of my iLiveInYourHouse.com tour (for a few days, at least), I woke up at my friend’s house. She made breakfast, which I ate with her son. She made some suggestions about what route to take and … Continue reading

I didn’t sleep that well on the street in Santa Cruz. Around 3:00 I gave up on sleeping and watched an episode of Breaking Bad. In the morning I tried to listen to NPR, but the battery got too low … Continue reading

A Bittersweet Visit

I love the Robber Barron houses like Biltmore and Hearst Castle, but I decided that I’d forgo seeing Hearst Castle this trip. I was already south of it and had planned to meet up with a women who follows my … Continue reading

In which I eat for the time it takes to bicycle 100 miles

I woke up in a motel room not a whole lot bigger than Walden. My aunt and uncle were on the other bed. We managed to get up and shower and get moving. We then set out to try to … Continue reading

Making Our Way to LA

We snuck out of the motel before my cousin awoke. We left him and his girlfriend the keys to my aunt’s car and my aunt, uncle and I headed out in Walden. It seemed like a good idea to check … Continue reading

The Week of Sloth
