Restaurant Review: Aquavit Bistro

So I’m thinking of starting a new series of posts to go along with Maria and I’s exploration of the many varied restaurant options in New York City. We’ve always loved food, perhaps think of ourselves as foodies, and it was just Restaurant Week. I’ve also always felt like I may have missed out on […]

Updating on the train

Huh, apparently I have 4 WordPress Plugins to update, plus a new Core version to upgrade to. Since I’m connected to the internet through my cell phone’s tether through my VPN in the States, I’m thinking I’m gonna hold off on any major internet work that’s actually important and meaningful until later. I’ll be back […]

Countdown: 2 Weeks, 3 Days

Countdown: 3 Weeks, 1 Day

Maria’s sleeping next to me right now. It’s hot, but the fan’s kind of nice. At least it’s nice for her. I’m not entirely sure it’s doing anything for me. It’s actually almost exactly only three weeks away, but I’m writing this just before. I’m giddy I think, and it’s keeping me from sleeping. We […]

Countdown: 3 weeks, 4 days

This may be a long post; readers forewarned. Completely irrelevant to anything regarding the actual “meat and potatoes” of this post, I have a suspicion that the Blogger suite of sites, particular its Javascript and maybe some of the $_SESSION options, don’t work with the latest version of Firefox on a Mac.
