Hello loyal readership of five.

Well, it's been about a week now since I last wrote anything here, so I figured I would write in and give you a catch up post.

When last we left off, I was moving apartments literally across the alley from where I used to live. I was able to accomplish this thanks largely to the efforts of my buddies Pat and Jen and also my mother, who came to town for a couple nights to help me move. I think it's nicer than the last place. I have to say once we got everything in the new apartment it was kind of humbling looking at all of my earthly possessions sitting in a pile in the middle of a room.

I worked Monday and Tuesday, and then took the rest of the week off to get my place in order, which I still haven't completed as I have a lot of things sitting in cardboard boxes - mostly books. It's amazing how much useless shit I accumulated. I threw out a ton of stuff before the move but still; how does that happen?

At any rate, Wednesday I deep cleaned the new apartment with the help of my girlfriend Katie and my mother. Thursday I did some touch up painting in the apartment. Friday I went out and looked at furniture with Katie. Saturday was rehearsal for our new RVD show "Are You There God? It's Me, Satan," (more info on the show to follow eventually) and Michigan football which was painful but sometimes you just can't help yourself, you know? Sunday Katie and I went to get dinner at the Gale Street Inn, which was delicious.

Blah blah blah that's been my week.

I figured I could keep in touch with the blogging world via my HP laptop during the move, with it's handy-dandy wireless card. I pictured myself waltzing over to, oh I don't know maybe a Caribou Coffee, grabbing myself an espresso and some free wifi and then writing amazing and relevant blog posts about, say, the Vice Presidential debate last week (which was kind of disappointing in that Palin didn't outright fuck up and Biden's eyeballs didn't explode out of his head - although Palin's mastery of mangling the English language was enjoyable to watch: "we've got not to (verb)" I think was how she phrased it, but I digress).

Unfortunately, my HP laptop's handy-dandy wireless card suddenly and inexplicably decided to cease working. As in it uninstalled itself of it's own accord. So yeah, I still have to figure that out.

Note to self: double check research before purchasing another HP laptop.

So instead I've been going to the Internet joint on Broadway to take care of Internet related things and check my email. Cheap compared to Kinkos, though I am surprised at the amount of people who are actively and unabashedly looking at porn at this place. It's astounding. No shame whatsoever. I have to cover my head with a paper bag just to think about naked women.

Yesterday I came back to work and the shit storm that always accompanies coming back to work, and now here I am hoping to write something a little more substantive in the coming days.

How are you, by the way?

Doing great, thanks for asking. Please stop buying HP. It will make everyone's life better.

I highly recommend a Mac - it will change your life. I love mine and, while I usually do not create bonds with electronics, could not imagine life without it. It's a bit of an up-front investment, but well worth it over time.

Additionally, if you really want to see blatant porn watching in public, go to the public library downtown. Rows and rows of homeless men looking at porn on the internet. I used to go there when I first moved to the city and had no internet. Sometimes I would have to wait an hour to even get on a computer, all the time knowing it was homeless men looking at porn ahead of me in line, and I just wanted to look for jobs. I washed my hands in a chemical bath after touching the keyboards. As I am sure you can imagine, the room smelled disgusting.
