Wow. Just. Wow.

I took another

I took another step into adulthood yesterday. I bought a suit. I have a formal dinner/dance thing with my work on Friday and I didn't own a suit, had never bought one, and didn't know the first thing about buying one. Thankfully, the nice man at Men's...

here and here.

So I got

So I got home last night and immediately started vegetating while watching some Forensic Files or whatever show I could find when I heard a knock on the door. It was Jen and Ben, just stopping by because they were in the area and wanted to see what I've...

So Sunday I

So, Sunday I went to pick up Mullens' birthday present, then headed out to Anna's grandparent's farm for a little barbeque, fireworks, and presents. I left early so we'd have time for the weekly bike ride on Rock Island Trail, which ended up being 16...

It's been a

It's been a crazy busy weekend so far, with a bit more craziness to go before it's done. Friday I got off work and headed to Mullens' mom's restaurant for lunch with him, Angie, and John. Then we ran some various errands where I picked up all new...

Dear August Are

Dear August, Are you having some sort of odd identity crisis? You are not October, so please, stop trying to be October. You're a good month, and it's time you stopped impersonating other months and were just your own month. Mid-August in Central...

So the Taste

So the Taste of Peoria was last night. I headed down with Mullens and Anna and was promised that we'd meet other people down there. We didn't. It was just me being the third wheel the whole time. It was fun though. The highlights being the 2 crazy drunk...

Polk came over

Polk came over last night to watch the next-to-last episode of Last Comic Standing. Everyone did really well, but I still think John is gonna win it all. Maybe Gary. It'll be close. I was glad Gary told more jokes involving cookies. That's important. I did...

Friday was Kouri's

Friday was Kouri's with Polk and, briefly, Christine (or was it Christina... whichever). It reminded me of old times when Polk and I first started the tradition without any other willing participants. After dropping Polk off at Circuit City, I headed over...

While I'm updating

While I'm updating wirelessly and all, let me also comment on Taco Bell and how much I love the chicken quesadilla. However, the new commercial in which it is featured makes me never want to buy it again. The commercial features a guy with a Subway...

So I heard

So I heard a conversation earlier between 2 40ish types. Both looked in reasonable shape for their age. Then they mentioned how they started "exercising", by taking a walk. Let me interject something for a second. I think walking is great, and I wouldn't...

I must say

I must say, The Bourne Supremacy was better than the first. Although I hate it when movies are completely confusing, but then like an hour in, they explain the whole thing. I don't mind it when a movie ends all confusing, because then you try and sort it...

Not a bad

Not a bad weekend, considering. Friday night was Jaimee's last night with the gang, and we went to Kouri's, as per usual. I wasn't feeling up to the Richard's trip later that night, so I went to bed early. Saturday morning was the day. Jaimee left. It was...

It's been a

It's been a strange few days. Jaimee was out of town, so I got my first taste of what it will be like to come home to an empty house, sleep in an empty bed, and not get dinner made for me. It will be okay. I exchanged my free 20" TV for a 27" TV of the...

I'm really having

I'm really having trouble resisting the urge to get a sweet ass T-Mobile phone. Just minutes ago I even filled out my information on a site selling T-Mobile phones for cheap. I was a split second away from hitting that submit button. The weird thing is...

I left work

I left work a little early on Friday after a disturbing email from Jaimee about a broken water softener and pools of water in the basement. The problem was pretty much solved by the time I got home, so I did a bit of mopping, then headed to Dynasty Buffet...

So I stopped

So I stopped by the hardware store to pick up some rat poison to clear out the garage on my way home from work last night. I also spent a few hours cleaning out said garage, getting rid of some garbage and whatnot. Here's something that fascinates me about...

After a trip

After a trip to Sam's with Jaimee, I took a bike ride with Angie. It was supposed to be a short one, but we got completely lost in a cemetery and turned around without a clue as to where we were going. It was pretty neat. We popped out right by the bridge...

So the secret

So, the secret (if we could ever call it that) is out. Jaimee and I are splitsville. It was a decision made reluctantly but mutually, so all is good in that camp. I'm still organizing my thoughts about the whole thing, and will post them once they're...
