The Belated Best

Another year, another probably-soon-to-be-defunct website on the backend. I'll follow up with something more permanent if this 8tracks business proves to be too good to be true.

A reminder that the Jets are fighting for a chance to the super bowl. They can use your support, this weekend.

They are on an incredible run winning 2 straight road playoff games.

This week they go against Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts. Hopefully, they can pull off an unbelievable upset. And make it to their first Super Bowl since 1969.

J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets!

The Parrot

Not sure why I didn't post this while I worked for the Pirates, but here it is now for all of your enjoyments.

if you are thinking about making a contribution to the rescue and relief efforts in haiti, one possibility is to support GHESKIO, a clinic and research station that cornell is affiliated with in port-au-prince. they have been working on HIV and infectious diseases for the last 25 years, and right now they are one of the few open medical facilities in the city. all donated money is going straight to the clinic.
no pressure, just passing the word on -


In memory of a couple of dearly departed Southern gentlemen:

Vic Chesnutt, 45, overdosed on Dec 25th:

baby brain

in the last day or two, carmel has started to look around and pay attention to things besides sleeping and momma's boob. it makes you wonder, what do babies think? can carmel see our faces? does she recognize them? is there any kind of awareness there, or is it just reflex: hungry → cry; tired → cry; gas → burp? sometimes it really looks like she expresses emotion, deep thought, amusement, curiosity. here are a few classic moments:

anyway, we are totally zonked out of our heads but having a good time. carmel is getting feistier, fatter and checking out the world a little bit at a time. y'all should come visit - we're jonesing for some jj8 here on the upper east.

Big Tempin': Recession Anthem

This took my back (hopefully not forward). And destroyed me. Big tempin' with college degrees indeed

JJ8 Teambuilding??

We should totally do a JJ8 field trip here. It's possible I'm the only person who would enjoy this, but I'm throwing it out for any interested parties. Seems like a cool new option in the hood.
