Well, my poking worked b/c we’re at about 80% rsvps received. Now I’m hoping the weather cooperates! We knew we were taking a gamble with the weather by getting married in March, but see, the girls’ state tournament is the weekend AFTER the wedding, so we should be safe For […]

Was last night - I had a lot of fun! Amy and Emily ended up not coming up from KC (good decision considering the weather we had dumped on us!) So it was Andrea, Kristy, Shannon, Brooke, Renee, and Lindsey - a pretty good turnout considering the crappy weather conditions. I still […]

So I have a link to the Quote of the Day site, but I never click on it! I did just now and I like this one:

Work has been extremely stressful for me this past week/last week. I won’t go into details on here since this is a public site and all. It’s just been a combo of being really busy, trying to meet timelines/deadlines, also being at the cusp of a giant project that will keep us busy […]

So I’ve decided there’s too many good movie quotes not to post. I’ll try to do one daily, or at least however often I write, but we’ll see
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
“I do have a test today, that wasn’t bullshit. It’s on European socialism. I mean, really. What’s the point? I’m not […]

How profound

Posted: Monday, February 19th, 2007 @ 8:52 am in Daily | No Comments »

So I had a very deep, profound thought the other day and I thought I should share:
There’s a lot of people who drive vintage/restored cars from the 50s and 60s (I would do the same if I could, I don’t know the first thing about old cars, but I’ve often thought that if I had […]
