The Mia Fan Club. | March 29, 2001
(Or: Matchmaker!) So, one of the things I forgot about my bonding/binge-drinking night with Mia earlier this week is that we got on the subject of internet dating. And see, Mia's been having some bad luck with the boys recently,...

And a better day. | March 28, 2001
It's weird and frustrating, how much my emotions are bouncing around this week because of getting laid off. Well, not weird, I guess - it's perfectly natural, I think, to have rather high-strung emotions when one is unemployed. But frustrating,...

Not the greatest day. | March 27, 2001
So, here I am. Unemployed. For a couple of days now. And the reality of it has finally sunk in - "Man, I'm gonna have to go get another job now, aren't I?" And in the middle of all these...

Another victim of the Bush recession. | March 24, 2001
So, for the next several weeks my updates here at the journal may be coming few and far between. Why? Because I might not be having daily access to the internet. And why is that? Because I, Jason Pettus, was...

The California List of Fives. | March 21, 2001
Regular readers will know that one of my goals in my recent California tour was to understand a little more about the Bay area, to get a sense of how things work there, why they work that way, and how...

California diary - Sunday and Monday. | March 20, 2001
So just when you thought nothing was left to say about my tour, there's something left to say. Sunday's events, instead of being the quiet wind-down to the tour like I thought they were going to be, actually turned out...

California diary - Saturday. | March 18, 2001
So, after finishing up yesterday's entry I headed to the Union Square Borders again, to meet up with my host John Davis and have lunch with him. His brother and his brother's girlfriend showed up as well, so we all...

California diary - Thursday. | March 16, 2001
(OR: Jason Finally Has His First Bad Show.) So, let's see, where did I leave off yesterday? Oh, I had just written my diary entry at Charles Ellik's place in Berkeley. We went out to brunch after that, at this...

California diary - Wednesday. | March 15, 2001
Did you notice that yesterday's diary entry was labeled "Wednesday" as well? Yeah, it's starting to become one of those weeks. There's just a certain magical point while you're on the road where you simply wake up one morning and...

California diary - Wednesday. | March 14, 2001
(OR: Tips For Travelers When They Get Lost) I've been on a train a total of nine times so far this week, out here in northern California. You're bound to learn a couple of lessons about trains in that time....

California diary - Monday. | March 13, 2001
After finishing up yesterday's front page at Beth Lisick's house in Berkeley, she and I headed out for some brunch before parting ways. Can I just say this? Beth really is one of the coolest people I know. She always...

California diary - Sunday. | March 12, 2001
So I woke up at *Eve's around 8:00 in the morning - bad, considering that I had just gotten to bed at four, but typical for me when I'm on the road. I just have a hard time sleeping in...

Ugh. | March 7, 2001
I slept too much last night - eleven hours - and now I'm all groggy and fuzzy today. Man, it sure takes me a long-ass time anymore to recover from a night of serious drinking. I'm getting so old! It's...

Holy shit, I'm hungover. | March 6, 2001
My birthday celebration last night, as could be expected, was a complete fuckin' blowout. Jesus, it's been a long, long time since I've drank that much hard liquor. About ten or fifteen people ended up showing early in the evening,...

It's my birthday - treat me like a rock star. | March 5, 2001
Really, that's not so much to ask, is it? My only requests on my birthday each year is that my friends treat me like I'm the center of the universe, buy me drinks all night, and one of them have...

I heart Patricia Smith. | March 2, 2001
Patricia was the feature last night at the Wam Bam poetry slam, and I was beating myself up last night trying to figure out whether or not to go - "Do I really want to spend that much money again...

The sex club is back on. | March 1, 2001
So I just heard back from a woman with whom I'm about to have a very interesting experience with in a couple weeks, and she just gave me permission to write about it at the site. So I will! In...
