Maggie already wrote pretty much everything I wanted to say, so go check out her entry about our viewing of the off-broadway production of HurlyBurly.

Stars in the Sky Benefit

Posted on by Patrick

Maggie posted about this already, but I thought I would describe it here as well. Thursday night we went to the “Stars in the Sky” benefit for the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps, a set of camps for kids with life threatening illnesses founded by Paul Newman.

Umbrella Update

I realized I hadn’t posted the outcome of my inquiry of my umbrella’s “lifetime warranty”. I posted previously that the poeple who make the umbrella obviously weren’t located anywhere with some pretty crazy wind. But as it turns out, the company is in NEW JERSEY! Not 20 minutes away.

Diet Update

Posted on by Patrick

I went to my dietician for a followup visit yesterday, which would include the all important “weigh in”. Well, I did pretty damn good for my first 4 weeks. I’ve lost 22 lbs. since my first visit. That’s pretty nice. Although I am well aware that it’s going to slow down. To help combat that, […]
