Life in the Fishbowl

Howdy guys,

I didn't mean to take such a long respite from writing in here. I had been working crazy hours to launch a new version of the website I work for. It's now up and running and stable, so I have more time to dedicate to this site. Believe me, after 10 or 11 hours of looking at code, the LAST thing I wanted to do was look at even more, let alone be at a computer.

I've decided to focus less (a LITTLE less) on my love life in the journal. Tell ya why: since dating entails another person (well, if you're lucky), it's not really fair to expose someone's life to the type of scrutiny I allow myself. It's not really an issue of anonymity. It's just that dating is hard enough. I don't want to make the other person feel uncomfortable, because I'm doing this webcam/online journal experiment. Dating me should not equate to giving up one's right to privacy. :-)

With that said, I will say two things:
1) No, I'm not dating Danny anymore.
2) Yes, I'm dating.

On a different note, this weekend was a really good one. Friday, I asked some friends to join me for drinks and dinner in the East Village, since I was housesitting/dogsitting there for a co-worker. Matt, Derek and Alyson met me at the apartment, and we then met up with Heather, Ian, Henry and Dan over at Wonder Bar. Hunger set in, and we headed over to 6th Street for some yummy Indian food. Alyson and I skipped, jumped and danced the tango all the way to the restaurant. We settled on a place called Shapla. (I happily started referring to it as "Slap Ya!") Heather just had me rolling with her tales of drunken nights past. I don't think I've heard so many vomit stories in my life! :-) It was a really fun time.

That's about it for now. I've really got to get working on other parts of the site. Talk to y'all soon.

Yours,
D.J.

The Webcam goes mobile

With Derek in London (with Julia), mah jong didn't happen tonight. Instead, we played a card game called Kwa-Do, cooked and had dinner, and decided to play "Super Fun Photo Shoot with the Webcam"! :-)

Anyone who tuned in would've been quite confused (or amused… or turned on…) with what that we were shooting. Henry has such a wonderfully photogenic apartment too.

Enjoy!

Here's us watching "The X-Files." I love these reaction shots…

A woman had just been microwaved,
and we got royally grossed out!
