Lisa and I on the Brooklyn Bridge, taken some time in 2004. (I realize that it was not taken in the past year, but it’s a great photo!)
I can’t let this pass without a mention – last Friday was the 1-year anniversary of our move from Cambridge to Brooklyn. Since then, we’ve started new jobs, reconnected with old friends and made new ones, and had an all-around great time.
I miss Boston from time to time, but couldn’t be happier living and working in New York City. Why would anybody live anywhere else?
I’m totally getting old! I just realized that I missed my “blogging” anniversary… On this past July 11, this site hit the 7 year mark.
FIrst Post? It was about that brick of a digital camera (point-n-shoot) that I bought that summer.
My original weblog was on blogger, and then was migrated to a ned.suckahs.org, when we set up the suckahs domain in July 2001. (More on that here.) In February 2005, I decided to split it out into the domain I use today.
The years are just flying by, I can’t believe it… on monday, the girl and I celebrated 9 years together, in the best way we know how: sharing a tasty meal.
And what better place to have a nice dinner, than a 4-star restaurant in a converted Burger King? Seriously.
Rendezvous just opened up in Central Square, in the old Burger King, and it is really really good. The Phoenix loves it. So does the Globe. And we do, too.
Just a note of thanks to Stef & Nobuko for recommending Dali’s for our anniversary dinner.
Presley and I have been together now for 8 years, and I don’t think we’ve ever had a finer experience. Because of the blizzard, we had to delay one day, but it was worth the wait… (a couple of photos of us… gag!)
Tapas items that we ordered:
- Mejillones con Aguacate (Green-Lipped Mussels w/Avocado)
- Queso de Cabra MontaÃ±a (Baked Goat Cheese w/Tomato & Basil)

A romantic night wouldn’t be complete without Canadian beer
On January 23, Presley and I marked our 7th anniversary, and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than at the Sabres-Bruins hockey game. Am I right?
Just so you don’t think I’m weird, our first “date” was a Sabres game (in Buffalo) in December of 1996. So, it was a nice reminder for us, and it was cool. Thanks to Craigslist, we got first-row, on-the-glass seats. Amazing.

Presley and I spent our 6th anniversary at Carlos, little Italian restaurant in the old neighborhood in Allston. It’s a quiant little place with good wine and terrific food. She had an Rigatone with Eggplant roll, meatballs, sausages and chicken, in a plum tomato sauce. I had the lobster ravioli with salmon, plum tomatoes, in a lemon vodka sauce. She gave me the new McSweeny’s package of issues 1–3 (reprint) and the upcoming issue 10. I gave her… um, dinner. I’m poor lately.
