I traded my trusty rusty 2006 Toyota Tacoma 4×4 for a 2004 Lexus RX330 when we had the boy. (I got a really, really good deal on the Lexus at Jim Falk Lexus of Beverly Hills.) A few weeks ago we topped 90,000 miles on it and I knew it was time for a new… Read more »
I just finished a 7.01 mi run with a pace of 9’38″/mi with Nike+ Running. go.nike.com/07v99rq #nikeplus — David Vincent Gagne (@davidgagne) October 18, 2012 That was my longest run in quite some time.

I managed to hit my new goal of 3500 Nike Fuel points on Sunday, so I feel pretty good about that. (I did the P90X Shoulders & Arms workout in the middle of the afternoon.) After an early dinner at Lakeside Golf Club, my wife and I watched this week’s Saturday Night Live, part three… Read more »

Every now and then a song is just perfect, and it slaps you in the face. A Better Son / Daughter by Rilo Kiley is that song today. These lyrics … Damn.
Let’s take a look at my current connection costs here in Los Angeles: Service Purpose Approximate Monthly Rate DirecTV HD Satellite TV + 2 HD DVRs $135 AT&T mobile phones + data $235 Verizon land line (for alarm system) $24 Time-Warner Cable Internet $50 So I’m paying almost $450.00/mo to stay “connected”. Eek.
My son is now almost seventeen months old, in case you’re wondering why I haven’t been posting very actively for the last year and a half. The last two months have been an emotional roller coaster for me, for reasons far and wide (mostly unrelated to my boy) which I don’t have the time or… Read more »
With the exception of my senior year of high school — when I was out of my mind with piss, vinegar, and hormones — I spent every childhood 4th of July in Bristol, Rhode Island with my dad. My son is (astonishingly) ten months old now and I have spent most of the day wondering… Read more »
