Hello, Me, circa 1984

Is that me, No. 1028, with my thick eyeglasses and mouth agape, during the Awesome 3000 race on June 2, 1984 at McCulloch Stadium in Salem, Oregon?

It’s quite remarkable to find a photograph of yourself featured prominently in your hometown paper.

It isn’t a recent one, thank God. This photo is from the microfilm archives. It dates to 1984, the second year of a youth running event called the Awesome 3000.

The more I look at it, the more I am convinced that it’s me. And is that my sister, Jennifer, standing by my side?


A pic from happier days, when life wasn’t as complicated.


I can’t remember where or when this was taken. It’s one of the few pics of myself that I don’t mind. I discovered a copy on my MySpace page, which I resurrected a few years back.

Yes, MySpace, now branded as Myspace, still exists, though for how long one can only guess. However, years of material, though minimal on my part, had been annoyingly erased during a reboot and rebranding of the site. I am surprised whoever is behind it continues to trudge along.


PS Remember Friendster? I was on there, too.

Easter Greetings! ¡Felices Pascuas!

Looking through Easter greetings from celebrities on Twitter.

The Easter bunny freaking out kids seems to be popular. Ellen posted such a photo, as did Kelly Clarkson. Kelly’s daughter clearly did not like being there.

One of the things I like best about President Obama is his family. He appears to be a solid family man, which is increasingly rare these days. They’ve got a great-looking, very tall family. I wonder what the daughters will do after life in the White House.

The best Easter pic out there, in my opinion, is Ozzy dressed as a demented bunny. It’s perfect.

I wonder what Guillermo del Toro is up to. He posted a pic while at home, which is dubbed Bleak House. Hes a fascinating fellow.

One of the strangest is a Kardashian posting a shot from a devotional, complete with Godtalk and Bible verses. It doesn’t really fit her image.
