Control Room

It's a movie that I recommend. 
I'm changing my text color because I want to.
It's not a perfect movie, but it should have been shown long time ago. It's about the media in US and Iraq and the war.  It's kind of what I want to say. 
Anayway, we went to an Italian pizza restaurant today before the movie.  It reminded me alot of G's pizza except it was not as good.  But it's the closest I've come across.  Mind you, I don't really go to Italian or pizza or whatever restaurants usually.  I'm save going to Italian restaurants for when I'm nactually in Italy.  It's just that we were running late for the movie and all the places around there (it's like a theater district) are expensive and time consuming.  So we found a place that was not fast food but fast enough.  And it was surprisingly good!  We were there all of twenty minutes at the restaurant.  That's the fastest I've ever eaten at a real sit-down restaurant...  I found a cute French restaurant and a fancy Chinese restaurant nearby.  That's where I'm going next since there are no good Japanese place here ....   Are you still reading this?  I find that to be pretty amazing. 
goo'nite everyone!

Orange / White Orange = Digital

Work is tiring. Time to go home.

Jeff, you should have gotten the 40 GB, my 20 GB is almost full (only 3GB left) and I have less CDs than you. (If by less you mean 1,150 CDs that is, and I still have tons that I haven't burned yet) (Also, your comments don't work on FireFox, I didn't check any other browsers)

Giulio, dirty boy, leaving condoms laying around so that dogs can poop them out. Triumph the Dog is going to find you and then Poop on you.

That is all.

Holly molly, Jee Wee, Willy Wonka, Mini Me!!!

Ciao a tutti!
First, congratulations to Sarah!! Up to now, Sarah for me was just the owner of Boris.
I remember the day Sarah stormed into my room asking: "GIULIO!!! Is this condom yours?? " showing to me a really dirty condom " ...because Boris just pupped this condom and I don't know whether he got it in your room or in the street!!!"

But now, Holly molly, Jee Wee, Willy Wonka, Mini Me!!! She is an iron woman!

(for those of you who don't know Japanese, it means " Hi Mayumi, how are you, what's up, hoyouu dooing! Good to hear from you! Are you still playing tennis? I still do, but I miss playing tennis with you.")

anyway, tomorrow I'm going to Italy. On my motorbike again. It's going to take two days to get to southern Italy. Be back in two weeks. Or maybe later.

Wow. A triathalon. Congratulations to Sarah, that is really a major accomplishment. Not sure if she reads the site, but that really kicks some ass. Let her know I said congrats.

Welcome Mayumi!

you forgot Jeff...
I know that you know who he is!

That's awesome about Sarah! Go Sarah!!

I saw Fahrenheite 9/11. It was really good. G, it will give you something else to talk about ...like Bush.


Hello everyone. I hope you are doing well.
Yes I am the one Maiko mentioned to add to this blog someone who did not live in the house (but visited frequently), mostly I stayed at the porch.

Maiko -- Thanks for asking me to join you!
Mike -- Thanks for sending me the info.
Giulio -- Surprise! It's me.
Ann Marie -- How have you been? I heard you just got married. Congratulations!!!

Letter from Sarah

Ironman Coeur d'Alene
Hello -- Just a quick note to say I did it! I completed Ironman Coeur d'Alene last Sunday 6/27 and it was a really super fabulous day. My parents flew out from Massachusetts to support me in addition to my Aunt Susan and Uncle George and my friends Candi, Cara, Kainoa and Chris who came up from Seattle. We had perfect weather - nice calm 66 degree water in the morning, sunny skies, low wind, and a daytime high of 83 or so.

The swim was hard because I seeded myself incorrectly and had to wrestle my way through walls of people treading water for the first 500 yards. And I got kicked in the eye, jaw, and all that stuff you hear about everyone beating the tar out of everyone else in Ironman swims definitely held true.

The bike was great. I felt really good, ate and drank a lot, and held a pace that I figured was sufficiently peppy but not enough to kill my legs for the marathon. My parents and aunt and uncle had their own little race in the car chasing me down on the bike course so they could pop up at various places out in the middle of nowhere and cheer for me. They were so awesome - I'll never forget how totally and utterly ecstatic their voices and faces were when I rode by.

The run started out kind of bad with GI distress that resulted in several lengthy bathroom stops but I drank some Coke at each aid station and my stomach finally settled down. I kept a steady intake of salt tabs all day so I fortunately didn't have any cramping. My only goal for the run had been to run the whole thing except for the aid stations and I did that successfully.

All in all, it went much better than I had mentally prepared myself for. My semi-pipe-dream goal was to break 14 hours and I beat that by 38 minutes. I was so totally happy with how the day went. It couldn't have been better! Thank you again to my awesome support peeps - Susan, George, Mom, Daddy, Candi, Cara, Kainoa, and Chris. It made such a huge difference having you guys there - I can't express how much your support meant to me -- and not just race day, but for the whole eight months prior. Thank you and I love you!

Here are my results. See you all soon I hope!

quite honestly...
G, I think you ran out of things to say long time ago...

I want to start taking aikido but it's expensive. more expensive than a gym ($80/month). I guess I have to run (free).

Wednesday, July 07, 2004

yes, new blood!!!! Please, we need new blood. I'm definetely running out of words.

And yes, Bush sucks.


I'll only approve new blood if I know who it is.

(Which is me saying, that if we want new blood, then tell me, and I'll send out the invite)

Oh, and Ann, please create a Profile, you are the only 53 person without one.

And, happy belated Birthday Maiko, I completely forgot, sorry.

My vote

This blog could use some new blood. We all know what Giulio thinks about politics by now. (not that it's not always fascinating, G, I mean every time you write "Bush sucks", it really is thrilling all over again. I'm just saying . . . )

can we add to this blog someone who did not live in the house (but visited frequently)? (it's not Casey)

Thanks for wishing my 22nd birthday.

No matter what the rest of the world says, from now on, I will be turning 22 on my birthday every year.

I came back from camping/tubing in shannandoah river. It was great! but now I'm really tired. being 22 is not easy I guess. I think it was more of the dancing/drinking that made me tired, because tubing requireds no energy...

BTW, I agree most of the time what you guys say about politics. But I don't have much to say because I don't have much info.

HAPPY B, YODA 30!!!!!

and welcome to the 3-club
