An original Victorian bar in historic Old City, Philadelphia.

I was in Old City this weekend, filming a movie.

It’s a noir thriller… A tale of intrigue and surprising revelations.
Written by me. Also, directed, by me. And (obviously) starring me.

In other words – I started my Halloween post. AND IT IS AWESOME.
(last year’s Halloween front porch)

I am single-handedly redefining the phrase – stupendous magnificence.
Not to mention the phrase – making a spectacle of myself.

Clearly, Sassafras, on 2nd street in Old City is the only suitable setting for my masterpiece.

Vacation… Stone Harbor & Cape May NJ.

Vacation was great.  Coming home and getting back to real life?  Not so great.

We were at the beach for a week and if you saw the photo of the car on Facebook,  you were amazed to discover yet another way Paul is the luckiest guy on the planet.

It’s not every man whose wife takes a rice cooker on vacation.
I can only imagine the depths of your envy.

We were in Stone Harbor, at the Jersey shore.  If you’re not from the area, that might make you think I was with some frighteningly-spray-tanned, overly-muscled drunk people…  I’m pretty sure that show has singlehandedly crushed tourism in the entire state of New Jersey.

But Stone Harbor is south, near Cape May… they pretty much don’t let you in without searching your car for Tory Burch and chevron beach coverups.  I fail this inspection every time, but I just act extra snooty and claim that I forgot it at home.  This seems to fool them.
