Let’s get caught up, shall we?

October 3, 2008

Forgive me father for I have sinned.  It has been over 2 months since my last blogpost.

But really, that’s water under the bridge at this point.  Let’s get everyone up to speed with what’s happened in the last couple months:

  • Still working at Citigroup.  I am now a full functioning member of the team.  I have a security badge, login, and now VPN access which means I work from home Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.  W00t.
  • I’m really going to try and get my SharePoint blog up and running.  I’ve had a few false starts on it, but I have recently felt this new feeling in my gut.  I think it’s called ‘motivation’.  We’ll see if it’s a chronic condition or a 24 hour bug.
  • Had a great trip to NY to visit the crew.  Kimi blogged about it here, although she wants everyone to know she has a new blog called “Love Is All You Knit“.  LOL.  My pics can be found here and it’s a good thing I took pics, because I probably wouldn’t remember most of my time there.  Unfortunately, I do remember puking on the floor of the East River Bar. . . twice.  C’est la vie.
  • Britton has moved back to Dallas and conveniently rented out my extra room in my house.  He has recently found gainful employment and is experiencing the joys of steady work.

I think that’s about it.  Hopefully everyone out there in cyberspace is doing well.  I will now bid you adieu with a photo of some moose at the Museum of Natural History:



I mean really, what are the odds?

July 28, 2008

In my infinite wisdom, I have chosen September 11, 2008 as my date of arrival in New York City to visit the McClellans and Eric. Some may question my logic for trying to fly on a day where mandatory anal exams will probably be administered at every security checkpoint. I say, if we avoid travelling on 9/11, then the terrorists have already won.


Wiped Out

Just got back from the Brooks ranch.  So sunburned.  So tired.  So wiped out.


Enjoy the pictures.




Let’s get caught up. . .

Let’s see . . . things that have happened recently. . .

Went to Big Bend yet again:

Leaving God's Country

Had a few Rock Band partays:

I'm like Phil Collins, or Don Henley

Also, you may notice (although I’m sure you don’t) that I’ve added my buddy Mitch’s blog on the blogroll to the right. Lymphomaniacs

Mitch was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in July 2006 and has blogged about the whole ordeal. Thankfully, news has been good on this front and all recent tests have showed him cancer-free. Go Mitch!

Oh, and I grew a boss mustache:

Mustache Rides - $1


Update. . .

August 27, 2007

Well, I made it the entire 102 mile ride.  It took me 8 hrs 9 min.  A little slower than I hoped, but still acceptable.

I’d like to thank all my fans and supporters at the finish line (thanks mom!).  I’d also like to thank the hilbillies that run that Free Beer and Brats stop 3 miles from the finish.

Oh, and Jesus.  Gotta thank Jesus. . . and Jeebus


H – E – double hockey sticks

August 24, 2007

So, tomorrow’s the big day. It’s time for The Hotter ‘N Hell 100 in Wichita Falls, TX. This is a pretty huge goal that I’ve had ever since I started riding a few years ago. It’ll be the longest one-day ride I’ve ever completed. That is, if I finish. I really haven’t had a whole lot of time to train for this one, so who knows how I’ll do. According to, tomorrow’s forcast is as follows:

Partly cloudy. High 98F. Winds S at 10 to 15 mph.

Great, not only is it going to be a scorcher, but there’s a nice headwind for the last quarter of the ride. Wonderful.

Yet again I’m flying solo on this one. Mainly because all my cycling friends are huge vaginas. Even though there are 10,000 people riding with you, it’s still a lot harder if you don’t have anyone riding with you.

Wish me luck.  I’ll need every bit of it.


blogging on the go.
