So nevermind the witches, vampires, and whips

Anne Rice, the prolific occult writing, is a born again Christian. She explains why she won't denounce her previous novels on her website, but she fails to address the naughtiest of them all, the Sleeping Beauty series...interesting. I suppose it's difficult to put a Christian spin on S&M.


Got offered an assistantship with the RTSP. Now I'm eating crow for being so bitter, but happy as a clam that I'm working again.

Back from Block Island and Manhattan

What a fantastic trip! Will, Scarlett, and I drove to Connecticut and then on to Rhode Island where we met up with our friends Ryan and Berkeley. We hit the ferry and cruised to Block Island for a fabulous week of beach, bicycle, fog, and New England island life. It was definitely different than the island life from my past. The island has cliffs, lighthouses, and creepy/beautiful old homes and hotels.

Scarlett threw rocks into the ocean (a favorite pasttime), swam in cold water, and buried Ryan in the sand. I think we managed to eat ice cream every night...hello tummy. Oh, and I saw

We left Rhode Island on Friday and headed to see Tina in New York. Our stay at Le Parker Meridien was great. The hotel is just south of the park...before all the Times Square hustle. We spent an entire morning playing in central park with Tina. Paul and Sterling, friends from NC, recently moved to NYC and we met up for dinner. I also had a chance to meet Tina's Chicago friend Luke...what a character. He knows so any bartenders...lucky us.

Here's a link to all the photos...including the ugly naked guy. Looking forward to our next adventure.

10 Years and Counting

Will and I celebrated our ten year anniversary today...I can't believe we're old enough. We had a beautiful picnic in the park followed by dessert at La Res. It was fantastic. Funny surprise, we bought each other new wedding bands, unknowingly.
