So tonight, Sarah, Chris and I went to see Itzhak Perlman perform with the DM Symphony. We sat through the pretty enjoyable first half, waiting for his performance the second half (guest soloists usually play one concerto, not throughout the rest of the concert) I had forgotten that he drags his […]

Chris, his parents, and I took a 3-day weekend and went to Branson…’twas quite fun except that Branson is far enough away (8 hours) that you really need more than 3 days. 2 of our 3 days was spent driving, but we had a full day Saturday and some of Friday night. Didn’t […]

My how quickly things change.
Over the past couple weeks I’ve gone from having no roommates (when Sarah is in Florida) to having two roommates. One girl will live with us as Sarah is in Florida (or at least for some of the time while Sarah is gone). We’re starting to look at […]

Some people just make you feel better about what you do with your time Funny how he’s accomplishing something…but not really.

I plugged my iPod into speakers by our community lab computer and put it on shuffle so we have a nice mix to listen to while lab-ing. Usually when a song comes on that I don’t think is appropriate, I’ll walk over and skip it…although I found out this morning that plan may not […]

Now this I’d like to see
I wonder if they’ll have to poke and prod her onto it like I have to do to myself…then will she be a sprinter? Long-distance runner? Will she keep a steady pace or really push it to get her heart rate up? And finally…will she wear sweatbands […]

For most of my life I’ve had a hard time forming a passionate opinion when it comes to social policy/politics, etc. Maybe it’s because I can be wishy-washy or, according to a book I flipped through, a mediator, but I can always “see both sides” Maybe I haven’t felt firmly enough about what’s […]
