The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Casa New Jersey

Before going to work, we stopped by Casa New Jersey so I could take pictures of the “empty” house (it wasn't completely empty—the previous owners left a few “things” behind, where “things” can be read as “stuff we now classify as garbage”).

Most of the junk left behind was upstairs in the Kids' Room, although The Kids were more than happy to keep it.

Too bad. It's junk. And what wasn't junk (like the large pieces of plywood used to cover the windows during a hurricane) is too useful to let them have at it.

One of the more dangerous items found was a rusty machete in a stand of bamboo at the far corner of the lot, which I jokingly called our own little slice of Southeast Asia.

And in the Master Bedroom, the previous owners were kind enough to leave a painting for us.

How nice.

The next few days will be spent cleaning up the remaining “stuff” and the actual move will happen next week.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
