It seems like forever since I’ve written. Still no job, very little money, getting behind on bills. It’s pretty depressing because I was just at the point where my credit was getting restored. I’ve had some problems with my blood pressure. I’ve been walking 4 or 5 times a week with the silly pups. I […]

Washington National Cathedral
December 22nd, 2001 @ 7:57 am

Towards the end of December in 2001, I emailed my mom a story about one of the gargoyles at the National Cathedral in Washington. (The gargoyle looks just like Darth Vader.) She replied to me with this message: You know, I was there with Nana when they were still working on it. It was in […]

Know Your Friends
December 16th, 2001 @ 7:48 pm

I sent an email to a few dozen people in mid-December of 2001. It was one of those silly chain-letter-type messages that asks a bunch of questions that you’re supposed to answer and then forward to your friends so they can learn more about you. They were pretty common a decade ago, though I hardly […]

Dic and I are talking. We’ve been sharing some stuff from the past. Maybe it’s because it finally dawned on me that he grew up in the same environment I did, with his own set of Italian Catholic male issues, insecurities, and stresses in addition to our shared experience of feeling as if we were […]

Been a While
December 9th, 2001 @ 12:00 pm

It’s been a while since I wrote. I’ve been up and down a lot, working on a 3rd interview with digi-net (could be a good opportunity), went to see Susan in a funny play, had someone give me $24 because I’m out of work (great story!), not getting stuff done around the house, worrying about […]

I got this email from mom on a late Saturday afternoon: David, I spent about an hour creating a wish list on amazon. I can’t access it, but it’s there. Let me know if you have a problem getting to it. I used Kathleen A. Gagne. There is another one there for a Kathleen Gagne […]

It’s 11:40 PM. Jen left for Tampa about half an hour ago. She’s driving there and spending the night at the Carswell’s. They said she could leave her car there and take a taxi to the airport. She came over around 8 and we spent good time together. We laughed and talked and played Whomp […]

An Interview
November 26th, 2001 @ 12:00 pm

It seems like forever since I’ve written. I’m trying to keep a more positive attitude but, last night, I was feeling really weird, shake and queasy and as if my blood was racing. I called the doctor and he said it didn’t sound too serious, but to call dr. in am. I have an appointment […]

Self Motivation
November 16th, 2001 @ 12:00 pm

Saw Harry Potter with Jen today. They did a great job! Practically every scene was exactly as I had pictured it while reading. Nothing – nil – cold stop in the job search. Sent out one resume but really don’t anticipate any response. I’m feeling kind of desperate. I know I have to make some […]

And they laughed in all the right places.

Long day. Went to Barbara Peburn’s brother’s funeral with Jen. It was in Deltona. Barbara said I was a good friend for going all that way. Then she mentioned later that Jen and I were good friends. I think she doesn’t have a clue how much Jen and I would do for her. It’s funny, […]
