Hey Good Lookin'

Dating Advice: A Top 7 List
  1. As a rule of thumb, homemade cards are far superior to store bought. I can't think of many store bought cards I've saved, but I've got a whole folder full of homemade ones.
  2. Guys: If you invite a girl to a study group that consists of only you and her, and she just so happens to bring homemade cookies, eat the stinking cookies. In fact, if a woman ever cooks or bakes for you, for any reason, eat it and like it.
  3. Girls: Don't go to a study group that consists only of you and a guy.
  4. For my Campbellsville friends: going up the road and then hanging out with your current object of affection does not a good time make.
  5. Early on, find out what kind of baggage the other is carrying. You may only be toting a knapsack, but if you're still not strong enough to help carry the other's load, shut it down. You will thank yourself later on down the road, and will also look wise beyond your years.
  6. Dinner and a movie is a great first date for a number of reasons. Look for the subtleties: does he chew weird? does she have poor taste in movies? If the answer to either of those is yes, well... maybe they aren't Mr./Mrs. Right.
  7. People watch together. You'll learn a lot about how the other sees his/her surroundings, and if you are on the same page.
All right friends, what would you add to the list? Comment. Go.

500th Post!

I just noticed that this will be my 500th post.

What better way to make good use of a post than to brag on Dusty a little bit?

He took these really incredible pictures of stuff around our "neighborhood" if you can call it that. You have a house next to you, we have a barn hanging tobacco.

Click here to see his Flickr album. You'll be happy. And here's an enticing little preview:


There is a church that I pass on my way to work everyday that is beginning to live in infamy, in my mind anyway, for having terrible church signs.

Check out this jewel I saw last week:

I love looking at the Boston Big Picture's photo essays. I just looked at one of their recent ones about Hindu festivities and it's amazing!

Yet Another Baby Video

I can't help it! I'm just so enamored by Gabby. She's growing, crawling, pulling, learning, moving, and, if you can't tell from this video, becoming quite the comedian. Believe me when I tell you that this is just as cute as the duck and peek a boo. A little tip: make sure your volume is up. Enjoy!

Happy Birthblog!

Today is my friend Adam T's b-day.

Adam and I have been friends for a long time, solidified by the fact our parents were/are friends and we all almost sunk a boat together.

Regrettably, most of my incriminating pictures of Adam from high school are back in Missouri. I did however dig a few out of the archives and scanned them to the ole lappy. Enjoy!

(Adam, at prom as a sophomore... in college. His main job that night was "designated camera holder" if I do so recall.)

(Adam, Six Flags St. Louis. Exciting times.)

(Adam, no caption necessary.)

SO, Adam T, I hope you read this today! Have a Happy Birthday! Sorry I can't be your backup anymore.

Blogging Whilst High On Allergy Meds

My nose is so stuffed up right now it feels like it has detached itself from my face. Perhaps it has. Damn allergies.

My friend Randi posted this on the FB today and it's a pretty amazing tribute to one of my favorite childhood. Feast your eyes:

Speaking of childhood, my dad became pretty famous in our little family for his catchphrase, "I don't want to go fast people, I just want to go the speed limit!" This would mainly make its emergence during family vacations (which, I'm afraid, is a whole 'nutther blog post; we've had some doozies in our day) and was met with much waving of the hands and honking of the horn.

That said, I am beginning to understand my father's angst. I would like to give a shout out to old man, old lady, any person driving farm machinery, out of state 15 passenger vans, and my all time favorite the red 2000-recent mustang convertible doing 30 in a 55. You all suck and should be "safely and without harm driven off the road." (Yes, that's another Don Hamlin phrase.)

My Two Current Favorite Commercials:

Today I discovered that my crap-puter at work has less than 1G of RAM. To be exact it has .99. Couldn't they have just splurged for the extra .01? Really?

Seasonal allergies, over and out.
