This is a video about my favorite breakfast smoothie, my favorite ingredients, and the best way to make it.
I went to talk to New York Times photographer Stephen Crowley today. We talked about storytelling, and about doing what you have to do to work. He talked about creative journalism vs. technical journalism. He told me I should do some more stuff w/ my poems, like below.

I went out to Springfield w/ Colin today to help him and his dad, Jim, get rid of some dead branches and trees. They cut, I split, me and Colin stacked. It was a real professional operation. I've found I like splitting wood. I've found a new profession. If you have any logs you want split please contact me. You must provide the equipment (sledge hammer, min. of 2 wedges). Thank You.

I hung out w/ Eric Powell for a while tonight. We looked at photos, sat on the balcony and ate salami sandwiches, pita chips, humus, tomatoes, mozzarella, beer ... Eric said, "We are the Europeans tonight." I said, "Yeah. We're the Italians, the Greeks ... the Irish."

Few men in DC possess the chic of Michael Terzano. He knows it. He uses it to his advantage. All the girls say, there goes Mike T. (or Pterodactyl as he's known), when he walks by. He hears them, he might even see them out of the corner of his eye, but he doesn't blink or turn or nod. He is a rock, an island. Mike T. is a man of men. A word of advice, watch out for him.

I would like to thank my many sponsors (not including Eric Powell) for the drinks and admission to the Hirshhorn opening last night. It was good to see friends, and friends of friends, and new friends, and old friend. And special thanks to Mrs. Hirshhorn for dropping the money for this event, and the drink tickets she dropped while standing in line.

I met Rachel at Caribou. I sent out some resumes. (One of which, I got a bite!) I told Rachel I had a dream that I had once killed someone and I had lived my life trying to hide it, until I woke up. Rachel told me she had a dream that she was a terrorist and had killed hundreds of people w/ bombs, etc. And would cut the clips from the newspapers and use them in her art. Later, I saw Cherif on the sidewalk. He told me I could easily get a job at Whole Foods. But, I've been there three times in the past couple days. Of any temporary job, that's the one I would prefer.
