Polk's theme is

Polk's theme is music lyrics. I don't think I'm a big enough music fan to quote applicable or interesting lyrics, so I'm opting to quote either my joke text messages or Maxim tip text messages. Maxim tip: When playing poker, fold often in early hands. The...

The New Year

The New Year party turned out pretty well. It was just a laid back and uneventful night, which are always fun. I totally dominated in Texas Hold 'em, as per usual. Winning at everything makes my night way more fun. Of course, all this New Years talk is...

Wow with the

Wow, with the last entry creating such a stir, I guess I should always end on a strange and undecipherable note to make sure all my loyal readers are staying on their toes. Anyone reading this, this is your official notice that you're invited to my New...

The picture below

The picture below is a picture I took while sitting in the parking lot of my office building, waiting for my boss so I could follow her to a bar and drink beers. It serves a double purpose to show how I can drive a stick, which of course means I'm a real...

Well the holidays

Well, the holidays are over now, and I'm back at work. I do have a New Year's Eve party to plan and clean for, but other than that, I find myself not doing a whole lot much of the time. It's great now, for a bit of down time from too much stuff during the...

Fabish took me

Fabish took me out to dinner tonight. I assumed an innocent dinner until he told me he had an announcement. I guessed it pretty quickly, but let him break the news. He's going to be a daddy. [I remember when he got married][1], and how bizarre it was to...

As promised below

As promised, below are 4 photos to make up for the entries without them. On Christmas night, Wolfie was the only one who called interested in keeping up with the Hoops tradition, now 3 years strong. We called it a night early so he could go see The Life...

Merry Christmas all.

Merry Christmas, all. Mine was excellent. Last night was Christmas at Angie's family's joint, which was huge and fun. The best part was the gift exchange, where everyone brought various gifts, drew numbers, then took a gift randomly or from a previous gift...

The picture below

The picture below is my nephew Jack while my parents and I were at my aunt's house. He's trying to show that the green candy he ate turned his mouth green. I'm not sure how well that comes across in the picture. And while on the subject of my nephews, my...

For those wanting

For those wanting a cheap, last minute Christmas present, here's something I stumbled on: [$10 DVD player][1] Note the 1 per customer deal. I tried ordering 5 and it wouldn't let me. Such is life. [1]: http://shop4.outpost.com/product/4195983

I am a

I am a hot commodity this Christmas season, I tell you what. Everyone wants me to go to their Christmas gatherings. Of course I'm almost always invited to my own family's get togethers, but on Friday I'm hanging out with Angie's family, and just tonight my...

For a couple

For a couple days now, my nephew Peter has been getting progressively sicker. Finally it was bothersome enough that my sister took him to his doctor, who promptly admitted him into the hospital in the intensive care unit with a bad case of pneumonia. He's...

All sorts

![][1] All sorts of fun this weekend. I kicked it off on Friday with a short nap to prepare me for a long night out at Big Al's. I showed up fashionably late as to not be the first creepy guy to show up and sit alone, only to see that everyone else had the...

Well kids since

[][1]Well kids, since I haven't seen nearly enough LJ posts for today, I've decided its time for a bit of a lesson. Some serious geekery is contained below. I hope you all appreciate it. First up, an ultra-important link is [here][2]. That's LJs new photo...

Below is a

Below is a completely random picture of Bryan J. So, yesterday the pain in my belly hit the "constant and unignorable" type of pain, prompting a trip to the doctor's office. He basically pushed on my belly in a few painful areas, then told me I had a torn...

So for the

So, for the past few days I've had a pretty nasty pain in my abdomen and left side. I assumed I pulled something while working out a few days ago, but ever since the pain has gotten worse instead of better. I used the internet to self-diagnose, which I...

Yesterday sure was

Yesterday sure was exciting. I took the day off so I could take Angie into surgery and be the "responsible party" for her. It involved signing some papers, driving, and a whole lot of waiting. I took my portraits in and worked on them during the waiting...

So on Thursday

So on Thursday Angie and I had our office Christmas parties, but made plans to call each other around 8:00 for an excuse to leave and meet up for drinks. I left my party around 8:15 or so and went home. Around 9:30 I'd given up hope that she would call and...

The photo to

[][1]The photo to the right was taken on my exciting trip to the throbbing metropolis of Heywood, Illinois. I had a meeting with a photographer down there dealing with a bunch of web-related nonsense. Whoda thunk that my full time job would land me so much...
