My night at the movie shoot. | October 31, 2002
(Hi there to all the new readers who found me today through the article in the Chicago Tribune. Just a reminder that you can have this journal delivered for free to your Palm Pilot or cellphone if you prefer -...

The tragedy of Bob Crane. | October 30, 2002
So I just got done reading Robert Graysmith's The Murder of Bob Crane, a lurid true-crime book which served as the source material for Paul Schrader's new movie Auto Focus. [I've since seen the movie; check the bottom of today's...

She's alive! | October 29, 2002
Mabel Neisbaum, that is, the titular character of my new novel, which I'll be writing from start to finish during the month of November as part of the worldwide literary project Nanowrimo. I finally sat down this weekend and wrote...

Guess I'll have to write this on the fly. | October 28, 2002
I had a floppy disk loaded up with everything I was going to get to the web today, but now I'm here at this internet cafe and it's not recognizing the disk. Ugh. So I thought I'd sit here and...

I'm on a mission. | October 14, 2002

[WARNING! Today's front page is a reprint from my sexual journal, meaning that it's pretty explicit in nature. Readers of a more delicate constitution (including, as usual, the author's mother) should proceed with caution.] But first a quick recap: my...

*Alexis and I are having a fun week. | October 4, 2002
The irony is that we still haven't gotten around to having any of our BDSM (bondage, domination and sadiomasochism) sessions, which was a big reason why Alexis is visiting in the first place. I don't know - I'm working every...

*Alexis got into town yesterday. | October 2, 2002
She rolled into Midway about noon, after spending almost $200 more on her stand-by plane ticket than the airline said she was going to have to pay - fuck, man. Anyway, she's here - stopped by my office in the...

I'm in a very good mood tonight! | October 1, 2002
And the funny thing is that I don't even know why. Just happy and excited that my ex-lover *Alexis gets here tomorrow, I guess, plus I had a good day at work, plus just got paid, plus it was really...
