bruschetta is better

bruschetta fresh!

Bruschetta is definitely good when it's really fresh ... better when it's made with tomatoes, basil and oregano from your dad's garden ... and best of all when prepared for an impromptu Sunday afternoon cocktail party with friends. Yum.

cape clouds

cemetery in hailstorm

This shot came out surprisingly well considering it was take through the window of a moving car. There way no time to stop since 30 seconds later we were in a crazy hail storm with ice cubes falling from the sky. The clouds reminded me of Eli's photos of Montauk. Perhaps there was a monster lurking up there too.

dinnertime on the cape

dinner toast

Cheap pasta, sauce from a jar, a simple salad and homemade garlic bread. Good company makes it all taste even better.

time out


I took a much-needed break up in Cape Cod this weekend. It was full of friends and good times. Everything else with the condo and the job is still up in the air, but at least there was ice cream, sand, dance parties and boxed wine. Oh, and a much-needed haircut, too. (Photos evidence here!)

honeymoon highlights: the virgin

Mary on Cerro San Cristobal

Estatua de la Virgen Maria on cerro San Cristobal, standing 22m high.

As for my recent stress, it's had a few major causes:
1. We made an offer on a condo in Jersey City. After negotiating prices with the seller for two days, someone else swooped in and outbid us. Back to shopping...
2. On the VERY SAME DAY, the newspaper where I work (and love to work) announced some major shakeups which could result in anything from unemployment, a handsome buyout offer, job reassignment, and/or the sale of the paper itself.

Hail Mary, we could use some grace right about now.
