Sorry about opening up all those wounds. | July 28, 2003
At least, that's the apology I feel like giving after receiving over a dozen emails last week about my most recent journal entry - the one about hanging out with my 15-year-old second cousin and how it reopened a bunch...

Regarding Nirvana and growing the hell up. | July 24, 2003
Among the many things that came out of hanging with my fifteen-year-old second cousin last weekend was that I borrowed her copy of the groundbreaking Nirvana album Nevermind and burned off a copy for myself - the first time I've...

Whew! | July 21, 2003
My parents and I just saw the nine out-of-town relatives off who were here this weekend; the house seems oddly quiet now, like something is missing. I had a blast this weekend and have all kinds of great stories about...

Greetings from St. Charles, Missouri. | July 18, 2003
I'm coming to you from the outdoor patio of P.T. Bailey's, a quaint pub and grill situated in the even more quaint Colonial district of downtown St. Charles. I'm sitting here sipping on a bourbon (as good Missouri boys are...

I partied with a bunch of flight attendants this weekend. | July 16, 2003

I made out with a couple last night. | July 11, 2003
(Caution: Today's entry talks about sex, and especially bisexuality, in an explicit way. Those who don't wish to read about such subjects [including, as usual, the author's mother] should skip today's story.) Right in the middle of a publc sidewalk,...

Entry #1000. | July 9, 2003
Well, not really - or, that is, I don't quite know. I mean, I suppose it could actually be getting up to that point; this is now my fourth year of doing the journal, and I might be averaging 250...

"Okay, Chicken Little!" | July 7, 2003
This was the subject line of but one of many similar letters I received from readers this week. Um, okay, yes, I admit it, my journal entries have had a tendency to sometimes get a little cynical lately! What can...

The fall of the American Empire. | July 2, 2003
I was mentioning her last Friday, tongue firmly in cheek, my theory of how George W. Bush might in fact be the actual Antichrist; I've been having a hard time understanding his recent public behavior in my head, I was...
