This Makes For A Great Weekend

I spent last weekend in Hayward, Wisconsin. My folks, my sister and I ran a 5K together. Some people experience something called a "Runner's High" . Apparently, at some point in the course of one's running, one experiences the sensation of being able to run forever and it feels super great.

I have never experienced that. I sort of correlate jogging with dying.

It's Growing

A Gardener Of A Man

My roommate Lana took this picture of me clearing out a small patch for a garden. It's my first garden ever. I cheated on it too. Well, maybe it's not cheating, I'm not quite sure how garden etiquette works, but I bought the plants after they had already grown a bit.

Whatever the case may be, I'm pretty sure short shorts are totally acceptable, if not recommended in garden etiquette.

Right Now

First Band Ever

I just remembered that I have the t-shirt of my first band ever. I played drums. We were a rap-core band called Code Se7en. That's right, a 7 instead of a "v". Pure rock. Awesome. Also, the shirt is signed by professional skateboarders. Adolescence rules.

Cutting It Close

I cut my own hair. There's not much to cut so it's real easy to buzz it off. I thought I was buzzing it the way I usually do, the clipper thingy looked the same as it always does, but when I moved from my beard to my sideburns, onto the side of my head, I realized that it was definitely not the same as it always is.

my roommates and i are watching the gilmore girls. Sometimes I can't believe that this happens...or has happened...more than once. What's her name and What's his name just got engaged. Awesome.

Here's a picture of a couple of my roommates. They're so nice.

89 years!

Tomorrow is my Grandpa's 89th birthday. He's quite an incredible guy.
My Grandma read a paper that my aunt wrote about grandpa when she was in eighth grade. Of course, Grandpa can't hear her. That motion, the hand cupped around the ear, is the most common motion at their apartment complex.

An Excellent Combination

I'm really interested to see how differently I understand this movie now that I am not 5 years old.

"Hey, Wanna Hang Out Sometime?" "No Bro, I Have A Prior ENGAGEMENT"

It's official. My brother and Helen are engaged to be married. This is so awesome/not super surprising. She already feels like fam damily.

"Like...Oh My God...Whatever"

You will find really great tunes here.

I consider myself something of a night owl. I am also a early bird as well. For as long as I can remember this has not been a problem at all. Getting 5 hours of sleep a night was totally fine.

Since I turned 25 something weird switched. It gets to be 8:30 and my brain-mind starts shutting off. I can't think, I can barely speak english, and I lose all feeling in my left hand. Just kidding. I just get real tired.

Anywho, the summer has just started and i already have it all planned out. Lots of work! But it's all to get ready for something big and exciting.

Here are some more show pictures and a poster for a show we're playing tomorrow at the Red Stag Supper Club.

Commit This To Memory

Here are some phrases that one would be smart to remember. Who knows when you could a phrase like this;

-"If I bought a new Cadillac and you were sittin' on a feather, we'd both be tickled"

-"I'm sweatin' more than a pregnant fox in a forest fire!"

-"I used to try my hand at the ol' licorice stick (clarinet). And the ol' slush pump (trombone).

An old volunteer I work with uses phrases like this all day and it makes me laugh my guts out. Then, when I don't know what the phrases mean (like the first one), he says, "Petey, where'd you grow up? Under a rock?"
