Weekly Update

Okay, time for my little update here. I know these posts haven’t been too exciting, but I’ve been so busy getting settled into Peoria I just don’t have much time for this right now. I really appreciate those of you who have been stopping by and commenting, it means a lot to me and I promise my new blog will be lot more fun. Speaking of my new blog, I’m going to start it on Monday December 3rd, so mark that on your calendar, if you have one. If you don’t have a calendar, then write it on your forehead and send me a photo and that’ll be next weeks post. I finished one week of work, and while I never blog about work, I will say it went very well and I’m working with some really nice and cool people. It’s a totally different kind of job than I had in New York and I really like it. It’s nice having a job that you don’t dread going in to. I’ve started fixing up my place and when I start my new blog I’ll give you a full tour, but here’s a few teaser shots of my new place for now.

It's in the fridge, Daddy-O. Are you hip to the jive?

Here's my entertainment center, Patty Smyth is now playing. Note the Sham Wow dolls below, created by my friend, Ash. They're very happy to be in Peoria.

This is my desk and writing area. I'm currently writing a story about leaving New York that will be up on the first post of my new blog that's going to debut December 3rd.

And here's my new favorite thing in the world, the ice machine in my building.

I don't know why this thing makes me happier than anything, but it does and that's a good thing.

Okay, I have to do some things and then get ready for work, so I’ll see you here next week. Have fun!

Bonus Photo From Gidget!

The world’s coolest DJ, Gidget, sent me this photo that really cracked me up. No one else except “Boris” will get the joke and that’s part of what I love about it! And speaking of Gidget and “Boris”, don’t forget to check out their wonderful radio show on Woody Radio, the “Secret Weapon”. “Boris” picks the tunes and Gidget spins them, it’s the best radio show in the world, tune in and turn on!



Okay, no time at all today for blogging, so this is going to be short and sweet. I’m starting my new job today! As usual, I never blog about where I work, but I think it’s going to be a great job and I’m excited to start it, so off I go. Wish me luck!

And my thoughts continue to be with my friends on the East Coast who suffered through Hurricane Sandy.
I’ve been in contact with people and it wasn’t pretty. Here’s a link to some other links that you can donate to and help Hurricane Sandy victims.

Please remember and stay tuned for the first week of December when I start my new Peoria blog! Have a great week!

Oh, I’m still loving the ice machine!

Bonus Photo of the Shawn Chittle and the Duncester!

There was a birthday party at Josie's bar in the East Village for THE N.O.T.O.R.I.O.U.S L.I.B.E.R.A.T.I.O.N. tonight! Here's a photo of Shawn Chittle and The Duncester sending out cheers to us all! Glad you guys made it through Sandy safely, I miss both of you and the rest of the crew. Sending love to you all!



Okay, I’ve decided to start my new Peoria blog the first week of December. I start my new job a week from today and I want to get settled in to that before I start blogging. Till then I thought I’d update this blog on every Monday up till the first week of December. These are just going to be mini posts, as I don’t want to do full-fledged Peoria blogs till the new one goes up.

By now we’ve all heard plenty about Hurricane Sandy.
It’s supposed to be hitting New York today and I wish all my friends there good luck and safety. It reminded me of Hurricane Tropical Storm Irene, that landed in New York over a year ago. Here’s some links to my reporting on that:

Looking For A Flashlight

The Food Emporium

Old Town Bar


Once again, I hope this is a somewhat “false” alarm like Hurricane Tropical Storm Irene was a year ago.

On a totally different note, I’m really liking my new apartment and will post photos of it when the new blog goes up in December, but in the meantime, check this out...

They have an ice machine here on the ground floor. It makes me feel like I'm living in a hotel!

And two grills outside that everyone can use. I can’t wait to make a cheeseburger on one of them! Best wishes to all my friends in New York, be safe and batten down your hatches!
