200th Post contest

Sorry, let me explain, it isn't my 200th post and I'm not having a contest, although, when I get there, I'll be compelled now to figure one out. No, in fact it is someone else's 200th post. And so, in a belated attempt to win a prize that has already been won I am posting the following series of photographs and inspired writing because of this post

It holds a memory, a moment in time when each person that stepped down that long alley way felt rebellious, adventurous, inspired, or grossed out. Whatever the feeling they had, whatever the action they took, in so many ways, these walls speak.

The brick that lays beneath holds tales from long ago, when the dust from the dirt road and the tumbleweeds blew through. But the only tales the bricks tell today are tales from more recent years, from before it got it's name.

I wonder who was the first? What was the reason? Or perhaps more importantly, who was the second? for that is the person that I think made it what it is today.

I don't know what compels me to be a part of what has happened here, but as I stand in between the two walls, I am sad that I am not chewing gum.

and takin names

Last night kicked so many asses I can't even begin.
Shout to OMB for kicking ass at the recital.
Props to all the ladies keeping me out till 4:00am.
Big time moment for Science, radio play and a live hour long interview, insane show at BF and the gearing up for next friday's huge show at Agate Hall, man they kicked ass all over this f***ing town.
Kicking more ass then anyone though was my girl Jessa. Happy freaking birthday!

I just finished some insane yard work and I'm ready for a break. Do not fret. There will be more from me, I don't shut up easily.

Oh, ya and Shannon, if you're out there, say so!

watch out!

**Happy Birthday to one of the most amazing women I know. You're one of my best friends and I would hate life without you.**

I know, I know, it's been like 600 years since I've posted. What can I say? You know when you're getting ready to write a post and you think, "Geez, what the heck do I have to write about? Life's been slow, boring, lame even, lately."

Ya. Well right now I don't have that problem. There's been so much going on that I have too much to write about. For now though, let me first apologize to all of the bloggers whose comment spaces have been without a word from me for the same 600 years. I really feel like I haven't hung out with my friends in forever, I have no idea what's been going on with you all!

First news. The work blog I mentioned a while back is totally in the works, so to speak. It will be available for you all very soon. I'm super jazzed about it. All 3 of us at Pushplay are contributing and there's going to be some fun behind the scenes stuff going on. Occasionally, if my work life and me life overlap, I may double a post, or link to one on the work site or something, but I am not, NOT giving up my personal blog. That, at least for me, would be tragic.

So. This isn't really a post about any updates or things. It's just a post to get me back on the saddle. Typing and thinking. These past few weeks have been so tremendously busy that I told Andy at one point, "man I'm glad breathing happens naturally, otherwise I think I've been to busy to think about it, I would have stopped and not known it until I was dead."

the daily grind

After the glorious trip to Ikea a few weeks ago, our house was left not in a state of perfection, but rather in a state of cardboard. This morning the last load of boxes was picked up by the recycling people, and this weekend will be the final house, that's the plan.

One area that is slightly more done and makes the feeling of accomplishment reign supreme is the office. I'm off to work...hopefully to do a ton of things I can't tell you about right now, but also to add the finishing touches to the "push this" blog.

I'll leave you with the photo array of the sweet new office space for the man, and a peak at where the bills get paid from a.k.a. my desk.

somethin strange in the neighborhood


We're one month away from being out of debt.

I just sent out our payments for the month and realized that if all goes as planned, next month will be the month of our final credit card payment and this month was our first mortgage payment, crazy how things change.

More on life and such soon. Just thought I'd share, cause we're super excited.
