its been a while since
many of you have seen
me, so, i thought, i would
put a few pics up so that
you will remember what
i look like. or, if you have
never seen me, you can
now commence with making
snide comments such as,
"wow, that is one ugly dude."
actually, i don't really think i am
ugly at all. i just enjoy self-deprecating
humor. there's nothing like it.
this picture here is from a date i had with j-lo. unfortunately, everything went wrong that night, and it became clear that we just weren't going to work out. she called me once after that, but, thank God for caller i.d. i mean, she is obviously exceptionally hot, but, i just couldn't handle all of the photographers and paparazzi. i like my privacy.
i was thinking about how there are many people that i haven't really seen or talked much to since high school, and i wonder if i am the same person to them. i mean, if they were to hang out with me now, would i seem to be the same? clearly in some ways i would: i am still intense. still a bit annoying. i still like to argue. i still love music.
but there are other ways in which i have changed so much. i have grown up, really. i am professionally at a different point. i am a husband now. and a father. and a new jerseyan. and i am in my dreaded 30's. and i now occasionally wear a cowboy hat.
so, am i the same or different? both, i guess. changed in so many ways. yet, still me somehow. as i continue to share myself through these pages, i will be as honest as i can about who i am right now. who i am becoming? only time will tell. for those of you i haven't heard from in months, or even years, send me a comment. let's reconnect.
random thoughts of the day:
the steelers WILL win this weekend against the raiders. the season is NOT over.
i watched Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring (extended version) last night as i sat next to a warm fire with my wife. am i a nerd? stay tuned for more lotr discussion...
i am going to watch napolean dynamite for the first time tonight. i don't know how i was an active participant in our culture without having seen it. but here goes...

i am currently listening to keane and snow patrol.
i am currently reading through painted deserts by don miller.
i am...still me,
