a note from the frey

Monday, July 7th, 2008 | Pete Stuff | 1 Comment

Just wanted to post a few quick updates while I drive to work (or, rather, am driven)…. Its been ages since i’ve posted anything here for all the same reasons and a few new ones.. So lets see…. updates…

Guess the biggest news is we just moved… Not far at all from the old place actually but its a bigger place with a yard… Basically brand new construction and very open and sunny. We moved last weekend (and, thus, missed pride completely… sure hope they have it again next year! ;-)) and have spent the last week trying to get the space livable and get the old place ready to sell at the same time… The trick is that we’re staging the old place with all of our good stuff which means we’re kind of camping in the new place – we have a bed, my desk, and all of our stuff – but the nice furniture like the couch and the carpets are all still in the old place…

I’ll post some pictures soon…

Aside from that usual stuff going on here… Lots of work as usual… Trying to keep the puppy out of trouble and happy… not much time for being social… Missing all of my shows that are in hiatus (ugly betty, lost, desperate housewives, battlestar galactica, ….)… you know…

oh… and i’m 38 today.. Kevin had some folks over for cocktails and snacks yesterday… in the new yard… so fun…. 😉

now off to work… more later!

Is it scary

Monday, March 24th, 2008 | Random Morsels | Comments Off on Is it scary

that everyone I know seems to be showing up in facebook? :-)… We’re talking my sister, her husband, a zillion people I work with, my cousin, friends from college, and as of today my mother and my girlfriend from high school (Yes – my GIRLfriend – enough already! :):)).

anyway… just makin me giggle.. I guess its just a passive aggressive way of letting people to spy on their friends… hehehe… I actually really enjoy finding people on there..

happy easter – by the way!

A few notes for a friday

Friday, February 29th, 2008 | Random Morsels | Comments Off on A few notes for a friday

Just getting to work but figured i’d throw a few notes up before I get there… Weekend is lookin kinda mellow so far. We’re going to be having dinner with Rick and Randy tonight which should be nice.. Rest of the weekend is looking kind of mellow so far.

Nina got snipped on tuesday so she’s restricted to the house until her wound heals. The trick with that is her energy is just fine so being confined to the house is making her nuts.. She is REALLY hyper and attention starved ( A combination of not being able to play with her friends and not wanting to leave us again for fear she’ll come back with another scar )… So we’re probably going to spend the weekend watching her and being mellow…

Do have a few movies I’d like to see so maybe i’ll fill it with that…

  • The Savages
  • Elizabeth, the golden years
  • No Country for Old Men

This weekend

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008 | Random Morsels | 1 Comment

Quick weekend update.. Was a good one, despite the CRAPPY weather. Our buddy Ray from Calgary came down to visit on Thursday and stayed until last night. Had a rather mellow time – at least as compared to his trip down for Folsom a few years back which was crazy as you might expect – but still nice. Kevin took him to SFMOMA friday while I worked and then that night we went out for dinner and drinks with some friends.. Saturday was VERY chill (it was stormy) – TV time and out to Blowfish for sushi. Sunday we went out to Chrissy Field to run nina and then drove around the city.

Like I said – mellow but still pretty nice..

In a continuing effort…

Friday, February 22nd, 2008 | Pete Stuff | Comments Off on In a continuing effort…

to ping the blog a little more often here is my morning bus-bound-note! :):)

Though actually not a whole lot to report since yesterday… Our friend Ray is in town visiting from Calgary.. Poor guy came from Canada undoubtedly expecting a little California sunshine. Boy was he wrong… weather here this weekend is going to be NASTY.. rainy and cold… ah well – an excuse for me to finally check out the De Young.. :):)

Other than that just the usual. Am trying to plan a trip back east to visit Kevin’s ‘rents and mine before our dive trip to Fiji in may. so current plan is week in march in Gettysburg and Winston-Salem (Pinnacle actually) and then a week on a boat in Fiji. Neither of them can come fast enough for me.

And on a final silly note, I’ve got a new favorite quote and a new favorite site… I stumbled on Wikiquote… I really enjoy different proverbs and how they translate and this site is full of ’em.. Anyway – found this one and it has seemed kinda fitting lately (and I’m going to plead the fifth when asked why it resonates right now! :):))

Klug zu reden ist doch schwer, klug zu schweigen noch viel mehr

Ok.. thats it for now… more
