where the hell is everyone?? it's like i'm talking to myself. on that note, hey john, let me tell you a story. ok, shoot!

last week when we went to go see sheryl crow we went with my oldest brother (he's 30) who went to ku. he worked at benchwarmers way back in 94, let's see, that'd be his what, 4th year there? around there. anyway, he was the bartender there. well, on march 7, 1994 he was the opening bartender. it was also the first time he had heard of this band. how does he remember it you ask? he had to run out and get fiddle strings for the big black violinist. "they're pretty cool guys" the weasel laments. please, rub it in my face.

neat story though huh? he said there was probably about 30 people in the bar that night. would've been cool to have been there....

jdunn, your TV family is the Simpsons!

Cue the blue skies, white clouds, and heavenly chorus — your family is most like everyone's favorite Springfield residents, The Simpsons! Your clan may not have spiky yellow (or blue) hair or only four fingers per hand, but Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, and even Grandpa are still your family's TV soulmates. Sure, they squabble with the best of them (remember the time Bart burned Lisa's centerpiece? or when Homer ended up living in Bart's tree house after Marge got mad and threw him out?) but they always come through for each other when it counts. Look past the clever one-liners and surreal adventures, and you'll see a family with as much dysfunction — and as much love — as you and your nearest and dearest have in real life. So, to celebrate your Simpsonness, pull up a couch, grab a Duff beer, plop down in front of the TV, veg out, and thank your lucky stars that you don't have the Flanders family living next door!

ah anniversary day. that's right, shayna and i have been together for exactly one year yesterday. i had plans but in order to keep them secret i changed them everyday for the last four. rather than go over the restaurants i pondered i'll just say how the night went-
7:35-i pick up shayna (we're zany role-players like that) and we exchange cards and stuff. as for her flowers, due to the cat's stunts last time, this time i got a standard bouquet and only three gerber daisies. i got the first season of the simpsons on dvd (i was secretly hoping for madden 2003, but after she saw how ffx went i'd be surprised).
7:40-8:20-the drive to dinner. usually this drive is only 30 minutes, i don't know why it took 40. anyway, shayna was clueless(just the way i wanted it). pierpont's at union station. good food, good times.
9:30-9:50-had to book it for the next destination...which to some was a downer. i got tickets to see sweet home alabama only because i knew she wanted to see it and it was chick flick that i'd go see voluntarily. that don't happen too often. so we got there late and the only seats available were the very front row and it was one of those screens that went wall from wall. needless to say we lasted about 5 minutes and left. kinda sucks because now we have to make time to go see it again.
11:00-we stopped at blockbuster, got kate&leopold (again) and some other flick. we came home and went to bed.

all in all a good night i think.
