Disappointment in the Human Race
Added: August 10 2004

It's been so long that I logged in to update this site that, for a second, I thought I'd forgotten my username/password. Ouch. Strangely, even with all of the recent political debating, I can't say I've had that much to talk about. Hence the silence here. But one thing that happened last night disturbed the hell out of me.

Montreal 2003: Prologue
Added: August 11 2004

My life is pretty dull. It's rare that I branch beyond the daily routine. I live a fairly solitary existence, so it's hard to come up with reasons to do things beyond the ordinary, and I'm generally okay with that. But, every once in a while, something cool and entirely unexpected pops up on the horizon. And tomorrow (the 12th) marks a year since the beginning of one of the most seriously memorable.

Added: August 14 2004

Friday, August 15, 2003. Chris works his magic in building a Beer Garden, then feels the karma of not having had to make any major calls in the previous day's play. Where's the Jesus Balloon when you need it?

Added: August 15 2004

Montreal 2003: Day Five
Added: August 16 2004

Montreal 2003: Day Seven
Added: August 18 2004

Tuesday, August 19, 2003. It's a nice, quiet, boring morning before heading to the airport for my flight home. At least, that's what's supposed to happen.
