Most often for wedding anniversaries but others fall under this.

I was successful in finding an anniversary gift!

Saturday was our one-year anniversary of meeting which led to our relationship. Getting Jennifer a gift is tricky! She is somewhat like me. She has everything she could possibly want but I think I’m easier because anything Star Wars, Star Trek … Continue reading

One year with Jennifer!!

It all started with agreeing to meet each other at a bar in Round Rock. A bar? That does sound rather cliché. However, it was back in the bad-old Pandemic was ragin’ days so masks were required and needed…however, we’re … Continue reading

Twenty-two years at Apple

It won’t be long before my employment at Apple exceeds the duration between my birth and graduating from university, the latter action saying I’m no longer a probationary adult. Like last year, it’s a bit of a pisser thanks to … Continue reading

Nineteen years at Chez Maggi

Another year chalked up at my house, nowadays it’s my house, for many it was our house but that’s life. The other funny factor, being in the same anywhere for more than three years is very anti-Maggi given my past propensity … Continue reading

Where are now? Let’s see three Mac Minis and a virtualized server for hosting and two different Weblog solutions. I’ve lost track how long I’ve been with WordPress but when I made the belated jump to the Weblog format, it … Continue reading

Twenty-one years with Apple today

Rather neat that these two things (work and Easter) coincide today. I think we’re all in agreement…better circumstances are desired. Plans? None since it’s Sunday and I’m four-to-nine years off of anything Apple might do to acknowledge my tenure. Let’s … Continue reading

Eighteen years in one house!

This anniversary completely slipped my mind with all the other crap going on but three days late is better than either not at all or in several days. I often have to pinch myself because I didn’t grow up in … Continue reading

Five thousand posts!

Well that kind of snuck up on me. I wish I could’ve timed it better to coincide with a better life event such as my 20th anniversary as an official Apple employee (next week) or something more worthy (wedding, birthday). … Continue reading

17 years at the same house and place!

I totally spaced on the day we closed on the house last week and 17 years ago, September 4, 2001, a week before the shit storm solidifying Bush the Lesser’s reign of error. As for staying in place, I continue … Continue reading

Fifteen years of marriage today

How I wish I were in Las Vegas right now. The heat doesn’t bother me as much. What should one expect anyway? It’s in the middle of the desert so there’s no point in whining over the weather/climate. Anyway…Somara and … Continue reading

Thirteen years of Volume Five!

The anniversary was yesterday but I always just remember I started the blog-format around the Fourth of July. There are days I miss the older, original printed versions because technology has come pretty far in cost as well as ease. … Continue reading

Twenty-four years in Austin

It’s great and weird feeling to be spending what has so far been the second half of my life in the same place after the years I was under my parents’ roof. The equally funny thing is they slowed down … Continue reading

Fourteen years of marriage

To celebrate this year, we’re keeping it low key due to it being a “school day/night.” We both have to go to work and then we’ll be heading downtown to attend the Labyrinth Quote-Along at Alamo Ritz. Somara is a huge … Continue reading

Eighteen years with Apple

Still the last person from the 4/12/99 hiring class of seven people. I hope Scott is having a good life in Brazil, Joanna down in Houston and I once ran into Darren with little daughter at Rogues Gallery. The last … Continue reading

Twenty-three years in Austin

Well, it’s not a great number other than being a prime number but I’m glad I moved here. I was dying inside living in Central IL. I was just surrounded by so many people who chose to settle and many … Continue reading
