Keys are ours

Ok, so we didn't eat pizza on the bare floor (I was exhausted from the heat) but we did hang out long enough to drink a few swigs of champagne and poke around.

Now we have to buy a garden hose or else our beautiful garden will shrivel up and die.

Our House

Here's our house, which we'll be closing on at 11:30!

I've been a nervous wreck making sure I get all the necessary paperwork, but it'll be worth it once we go back tonight and have a picnic dinner on the floor of our empty dining room.

iSpy on iTrippers

I made up a new game for my 50-minute commute from work: listening in on other people's iPod broadcasts.

I stumbled upon this a few weeks ago. I have an iTrip for my iPod, which broadcasts the sound from my iPod onto nearby FM radios. Like Mr. Microphone, only it works. It's a great, wireless way for me to listen to my iPod in my car.

One day, when I turned off my iPod but was still tuned to the iTrip station, someone else's iPod was playing on my radio. A tricked-out hatchback was playing rap. A few days later, an 18-wheeler was playing a redone Al Green or Kool and the Gang song.

Today I decided to tune my radio to the iTrip station on purpose, to see what I could pick up and how long it would take me to do so. While I was going north on the route 9 bridge in Sayreville tonight, a guido car speeding by in the left lane was playing guido music. Later as I turned off of route 1 towards my apartment, I was treated to a talk about the SS Mississippi from the mini van behind me.

Sure, you have to sit through 10 or 15 minutes of static until you pick something up, but if you don't get the least bit giddy when you do, I'll eat my own head!
What is it about bald guys driving convertibles?

9 out of 10 guys I see driving a convertible are bald or balding.

Does the wind cause the balding or is it just that bald/balding guys get convertibles to regain what they think is their lost virility?

There's nothing like hanging out on the corner of a local bar in South Philly drinking a Coors or Miller Light and watching the cops drive by.

Reserved the Date!

Our wedding date will be March 18, 2006. At least it will be once the reception place deposits our check.

I feel like I'm at the top of a roller coaster at the second when the train feels like it's moving foward but hasn't yet.

Now I have to find a dress - saw an Art Deco-like Jessica McClintock dress that got me thinking about having an Art Deco-type wedding. But without kitchy accessories like posters or pictures of movie stars. Don't want it to look Disneyfied.

This rant hones in on most of the reasons why I want to open a second-run movie theater in Asbury Park.

Also, I'd love to be able to kick people out of my theater for holding full conversations with each other or on cell phones during the movie. And no yelling out comments as if you're doing MST3000!
