Hair During Quarantine

Twice since the lock down started my beautiful wife has cut my hair. Today, for the first time, she cut her own hair. She found a how-to video on youtube and this morning she went for it…

…and it looks GREAT! She’s not all that happy with it, but I think she looks fantastic. I am really impressed. There is literally nothing she can’t do.

Haircuts, or My Wife: My Hero

All those right wing scum bags arming themselves to the teeth and storming into their state houses like the terrorists they are, demanding their hair stylists risk their health and go back to work so that they can get their hair cut.

Screw those terrorist pricks.

Back on May 8th my hair was longer than it had ever been. It was so long in the front that it was funny as hell. My wife gave me a glorious birthday gift when she cut it for me.

Fast forward to today, the three month anniversary of my last day in the office before my company shut down the buildings, the love of my life gave me another haircut. This time there was no messing around. She lopped off the places that were too long and then buzzed it like you’ve read about. Amazing.

It’s not quite high and tight, but it’s as short as I’ve had it since I was a little kid. It’s perfect. Bring on the summer.

Thank you, my beloved Jen. I know you were nervous about it, but you did great and I appreciate it so much. I love you!!!


Do you remember what you were doing on this date in 2008?  12 years ago?

I do.

Like it was yesterday.

On this date in 2008, 12 years ago today, I popped the question.  I asked Jen to marry me and she said yes.

Words fail me when I try to describe how happy she makes me.  Paltry things, words.


My beloved wife, Jennifer, wants to buy a new MacBook Pro.

This post is me announcing to the universe, both known and unknown, that I’m cool with it.

If anyone has worked hard enough to earn themselves a new Mac Lappie, it’s her.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Allow me to take a minute here to internet-ily wish a Happy Valentine’s Day to the love of my life, Jen.  My bride, my beloved, my sweet, my angel, my dream come true.  This is our 13th Valentine’s Day together.  Last night  I asked her if she would be my Valentine.  She said yes.  I am so happy.  I am so in love.  I am so in love with her.

Happy Valentine’s Day, my love.

Happy Birthday

Today is February 7th.  That means it is my beloved Jennifer’s birthday!  Join me in wishing the love of my life a happy birthday!

Unfortunately we have a tough schedule tonight so we’ll have to do our celebrating tomorrow.  That’s okay, I think we can celebrate her birthday all weekend!  How does that sound, Jen?

I love you more today than I’ve ever loved you before, and I have loved you a LOT before.  You are the best thing that has ever happened to me and I am eternally grateful that you found me.

Happy birthday, Jen, and here’s to many more.

10 Years

Today is a special day.


This photo has special meaning that relates to why it is a special day.

10 years ago tonight I ate dinner at a different Outback Steakhouse location.  The one in the picture is in Methuen and the one I went to 10 years ago was in Lowell.  The Outback isn’t the special thing about today.  What happened at the Outback, now that’s the special thing.

10 years ago today, I went on a date with a really nice woman.  I had a great time.  It was the best first date ever.  That first date lead to a second date, and a third, and a within a couple of years it lead to marriage.

Yes, that’s right.  10 years ago today, my beloved bride and I had our first date.  That was the first day of the best 10 year stretch of my life.  I love Jennifer more than words can describe.  More than any words I could ever come up with at least.  She is everything to me.  I adore her.  I love her.

Happy Eighth First-Dataversary

I know most of the Western Hemisphere is wishing each other a happy Easter right now, but I’d much rather take this opportunity to wish Jennifer, my beloved, brilliant, charming, witty, sophisticated, gorgeous wife, a happy eighth anniversary of our first date.  Since that day our paths first crossed in person, I have learned what being In Love truly means.  I have learned what caring for some one really means.  I have learned just how good life can be.  I have learned what real happiness feels like.  And it’s all Jennifer’s fault.  Thank you so much for that first date, and every single moment that followed it.  I love you with all my heart, and I always will.

I know you don’t like me posting pictures, but I want the whole world to see the smile I so adore. 



We’re celebrating tonight.

Eight years ago tomorrow was the first in a string of life changing events.  Eight years ago tomorrow I went on my first date with my beloved, brilliant, beautiful wife.

We’re going out to dinner with the kids tonight to celebrate our 8th Dataversary.

I’ve made a slew of bone head, dumb ass moves in my day.  Meeting Jen was not one of them.  Nope, it was exactly the opposite.  It was the start of something wonderful that keeps getting more wonderful with each new day.

Love you, sweetie!
