And So it Goes

So the magnanimous birthday season of Dave is finally at an end. We wrapped up the thing with a blow out at our apartment this past Saturday night. Eesh, I put myself through the wringer, party-wise. Definitely was feeling the effects of age on Monday morning.

Annnnnnnnyway, so now we begin the summer. We’ve been grilling every week on the roof, playing mini-putt and just relaxing. I’ve got one hell of a road trip planned at the end of the summer which is sandwiched between the weddings of four of my very dear friends. September is going to be an expensive month, eesh.

I’ve recently come into contact with someone that’s really changed me in a very distinct way, and in a short period of time. Have you ever met someone that’s so put together that they make you take a look at the way you’re running yourself and just laugh at the ineptitude you’ve got going on? All of a sudden all those projects you’d started and dropped look fresh again, those unfinished entries come together. I’ve been spending hours at the keyboard every day, thank god we’ve finally got our air conditioning installed. I’m not sure if it’s motivation or just a desire to impress, but either way the effect has been magnificent.

Oh, and I finally got to shave off my mustache, jeez was that silly couple of weeks. I like going from Diego (as my coworker calls me) to a mild mannered help desk employee or something. Complete with dorky glasses, very Clark Kent.


  1. add me to your list for the september expenses cause that’s when this hottie turns 40…YAYA!!!

    yes, i’ve met people as you’ve described and it was a wonderful experience. some were for a short time and others are still in effect.

    hit me up via email.

  2. Oh I so know the feeling of finding a person who makes you feel as if you’re the hamster! It’s usually a postive experience because I can learn from them. On the other hand, sometimes I do feel the need to feed them the poison mushrooms.

    Nice writing. thanks!

  3. You’re not allowed to be Clark Kent.

    Do you have the superman glasses in black from the little kids section of LensCrafters?

    Just me then? Okay, just checking.

    Off to save the world,

    P.S. Get an IRA, it’ll help you feel better.

  5. They don’t have phone booths anymore in NYC. It’s actually kind of a shame. The only place I could really get all Clark Kent is at this bar which is aptly named, “Telephone Booth,” or something, on 2nd Avenue.

    Lemme see if I can find a before and after picture, the change is at least moderately funny.
