biscuits are great, but

September 19th, 2002 Tony No comments

there must be somewhere in this county that i can get a bagel with sliced lox. i’m sure of it. i spoke with my friend heather on this topic and she swears that its impossible. “i’ve looked everywhere” she says. i won’t give up. i’ve tried every search i can think of in google for lox in raleigh with dismal results but i’m sure i just need to ask the right person. until then, i’ll happily eat my country ham biscuit.

google SOAP rocks

September 4th, 2002 Tony No comments

i have been meaning to get around to playing with the SOAP API’s Google has made available to developers. i was bored tonight so i gave it a whirl. within an hour i had my own little search engine up and running!

give it a try for yourself

its very basic but so cool. i’ll explore more available options later.

now i’ve got the black cloud

September 3rd, 2002 Tony No comments

amy was here last week with a streak of lousy luck. now it looks as if she left her black cloud here to float over my head.

sunday night: i was swinging in the porch swing. i looked up just in time to see one of the hooks release from the beam and send me hurtling into the bushes.

monday night: i’m cruising along I-40 on a pleasant evening on my way to the airport. i ran over some metal crap that wrapped around my rear axle and shredded my tire to blowout. i guess its not all bad. i hadn’t checked on the spare tire since i owned the car but it was full of air and good to go.

coffee in raleigh, nc

September 2nd, 2002 Tony No comments

I’m a coffee snob. I know it. I love the stuff and I’m pretty critical of the establishments I choose. I’ve been lucky enough to join the neighborhood at around the same time that Helios was opening. This place has a great easy going atmosphere, friendly staff and pretty good java. A milkier, less puffy on top cappuccino would make it excellent :)

Blah. Had to resort to Starbucks today since Helios closed early for Labor Day. I’ll be back tomorrow though.
