This is an archive of my twitter from September 2009.

Today is the 1 year anniversary of me becoming self-employed for a 2nd time. It's been a good year.

Tue Sep 01 19:27:27 +0000 2009

Right in the middle of a work-related-email-frenzy Gmail crashes? Damn you free services that I come to rely on for business!

Tue Sep 01 20:02:16 +0000 2009

My day today: PHP, XHTML, mySQL, AS3, CSS, AJAX, SEO, OS X, and DVD. #OutOfControlAcronyms

Goodbye JungleDisk, hello BackBlaze.

Thu Sep 03 02:56:19 +0000 2009

I'm going to the dentist in 11 hours for the first time in many, many years. It's going to suck.

Thu Sep 03 03:29:07 +0000 2009

Went to the dentist for the first time in 13 years. No cavities. Dentist called it a miracle, I call it skill.

Yeah, and I would have been perfectly happy never going again. The wife made me.

Luck had nothing to do with it, it was all skill (and genetics).

New York Times calls iPhone the 'Hummer of cellphones' [post] (via @TUAW)

Thu Sep 03 17:24:51 +0000 2009

It's not easy being as awesome as I am.

Fri Sep 04 21:24:52 +0000 2009

It's a TUAW (and former TUAW) fuck-fest! Fuck fuck! (@film_girl, @rawsoncj, @stevensande)!

Fri Sep 04 21:47:57 +0000 2009

Playing designated driver tonight, which is cool since, for the first time in a long time, I don't feel like having a beer.

One of the TUAWers got called out for dropping the f-bomb, so other TUAWers who like cussing also dropped it. Good times.

Sun Sep 06 00:53:26 +0000 2009

I notice that as summer comes to and end, my social calendar fills up. People are trying to squeeze every last bit of fun out of the season.

Sun Sep 06 01:12:04 +0000 2009

My sleep schedule getting screwy means going to bed at a reasonable hour and waking up early. I could get used to this.

Mon Sep 07 14:01:44 +0000 2009

I can barely draw Colorado from memory.

Mon Sep 07 23:35:28 +0000 2009

Comment on my last TUAW article- "You're so damn idiot with this post... Any stupid imbecile guy can do this.." I'm feeling the love!

Tue Sep 08 17:54:06 +0000 2009

14 hour work day, and LOTS accomplished. I think that's good enough for now.

Wed Sep 09 05:19:53 +0000 2009

iTunes 9 is downloading. Then it's time for real work today, I swear (after getting my iPhone to 3.1)

Wed Sep 09 18:23:10 +0000 2009

iTunes 9, why are you teasing me with a Pearl Jam LP I can't buy in the US?

Wed Sep 09 19:04:59 +0000 2009

I think my monitor is starting to poop out. Bad times as me and wifey are trying to save some dough.

Thu Sep 10 02:52:29 +0000 2009

Nothing like a server crisis and fear of phone calls from angry clients to get the blood pumping. But I fixed it and all is well. Phew.

Thu Sep 10 03:40:25 +0000 2009

The run yesterday nearly killed me, and my poor legs are still attacking me for the pain I inflicted.

Thu Sep 10 20:11:46 +0000 2009

Kinkos sucks now that they're fedex. My poor, beloved Kinkos.

Fri Sep 11 00:04:17 +0000 2009

2:40 am, and I guess I'm done with work for the night.

Fri Sep 11 07:39:26 +0000 2009

Two big meetings on Monday. I guess that means I'll need to change out of my pajamas.

Sat Sep 12 20:06:49 +0000 2009

At the local microbrewery / pub. The love affair with beer continues.

Sat Sep 12 21:26:27 +0000 2009

On days that I'm crabby about having to wake up early, I need to remind myself that I'm lucky to only have to do it a few times a month.

Mon Sep 14 14:42:45 +0000 2009

@kristenfischer How 'bout an article on dealing with the "feast" part of feast/famine? When you have too much to do and more keeps coming.

Mon Sep 14 19:08:42 +0000 2009

For the first time in my entire life, I have drank 2 cups of coffee in one day. Thanks to my meetings held at local coffee shops!

Mon Sep 14 19:10:19 +0000 2009

I really want to do this.

Mon Sep 14 19:45:10 +0000 2009

Replying to @cameronshearhod

Okay, you talked me into it.

Mon Sep 14 19:51:01 +0000 2009

I am drowning in work/business! My big 3-0 is coming up soon, so maybe this hurricane of work means I can buy myself something nice.

Mon Sep 14 21:14:54 +0000 2009

Fact of the day: as long as it's not too hot and as long as I keep my pace at around 12 minute miles, it seems I am able to run forever.

Tue Sep 15 03:19:57 +0000 2009

Passed out while giving blood this morning, which makes this the last time I ever do it. Now to find another way to contribute to society.

Tue Sep 15 17:38:41 +0000 2009

On one of my first websites, I wrote about Army of Darkness. Now, 13 years later, I am still writing about it.

Tue Sep 15 23:07:29 +0000 2009

Two articles for TUAW published today, and no negative comments. I can hardly believe it.

Wed Sep 16 03:07:06 +0000 2009

Oh yeah, been such a busy day I forgot about the initial launch of the latest horror movie portal on the net, GRUESOME.

Wed Sep 16 03:36:33 +0000 2009

Replying to @MikeTRose

I just went to the dentist after a 13 year absence. Imagine the dirty looks and lectures. No cavities though.

Mon Sep 21 21:01:08 +0000 2009

Sorry Starbucks, you're not getting my Wifi money as long as I can login to Qdoba's wifi from my seat. I win.

Tue Sep 22 14:53:11 +0000 2009

What a perfect ending to an otherwise very excellent day.

Thu Sep 24 02:25:49 +0000 2009

Oh Chicago, how I miss you. Sometimes.

Fri Sep 25 17:47:59 +0000 2009

Thanks, Danny Alpert in Chicago (whoever you are), for letting me use your open Wifi while sitting at Starbucks.

Fri Sep 25 18:53:44 +0000 2009

It's a beautiful night to sit outside, enjoy my outdoor fireplace, and get a little work done on my porch. Freelancing (and my life) rules.

Replying to @toddsee

Sure thing my friend. Enjoy the hell out of it. The 2005 episodes are coming soon (i know I keep saying it but I mean it this time)

Wed Sep 30 03:25:57 +0000 2009

Budweiser's American Ale is perfect for a guy like me who likes ale and likes America.

Replying to @toddsee

Search functionality is coming, brotha. You'll be able to search guest names or comments for certain episodes. Patience is a virtue

Wed Sep 30 04:37:23 +0000 2009

I always love Wednesdays... lunch at Quizno's, the running group, dinner and beers. Happy Hump Day!
