I had to change to layout of this thing because it was bothering me that it was so damn ugly. The only thing that sucks is that all those Italy pics (and probably any others I put up) are cut off.

Oh well. I'm a very visual person, and the ugg factor was bothering me.

In other news....

Sometimes, as I think I've probably mentioned before, I like to scour the internets for old acquaintances. Sometimes I get a laugh, sometimes I get to reconnect with a long lost friend and sometimes, like today, I find out they're dead.

At least I think I have the right person (this time).

I thought I had found this particular person some time ago, but after a few emails back and forth, found out that my memory isn't as reliable as I thought it was.

But today I think I actually found the correct individual. And he's dead.

Someone, his wife (girlfriend?) has a posthumous Myspace profile set up for him. I sent her a message to see where this person went to high school. Haven't heard back yet. We'll see.

I don't know why I care. I suppose it has something to do with the fact that knowing someone my own age and who I had some fleeting "history" with is dead kind of bothers me.

I'll let you know how this turns out.

Of course it does, diva.

In the past two-years, I found out that two people I went to high school with died. One from a drug overdose and another from cancer. It was so fucking sad and traumatizing because we are the same age.

Oy, I'm sorry, doll, so sorry.

Nice look on the blog, very cool! And concerning the picture above the bacon, can I get an invite to one of your parties even if I don't own a coat and tie?

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
