It's cold and it's black but it's beating

I feel like I'm never the first one to say "Good morning." or "How are you today?" I'm always having to be like "Not bad" or "Pretty good" or whatever; and then almost as if it didn't occur to me to ask, I'm like "...Oh yeah, and how about you?" This bothers me a bit. Am I that selfish? (Yeah, probably.) I don't think that it's because I'm not interested. It's just that, for whatever reason, I don't think to ask right away. Someone who thinks they are really smart would probably tell me that it's because I'm an introvert or something. Whatever. Anyway, I've been attempting to change this behaviour and beat people to the punch, so to speak. Also, I've been trying really hard to ask my roommate or my girlfriend how their day was before they ask me.

Sometimes when you're walking around downtown..

...with a French man, listening to him talk about The Theater, you can forget where you live; but then you see this and you're like "Oh yeah, that's right."

ps-It says I heart Slug.


Huskies Win!!!

First round victory for Bigfork yesterday. Read about it here and here. Keep on rollin' girls!


not really missing out, but sorta missing out at the same time

Lot's of folks from work are gone to Austin for SXSW. I've only been once before, but I think I got the hang of it: If you're into walking forever, from bar to bar and not being able to get into any of the shows you want, but finding some unexpected jem of a band at a bar not participating in the festival, then you'll think it's a really good time. I'll admit, I'm kinda jealous. If I was there, and I was able to get in, I'd probably go to this...
...and this...
...and go see my boy Dwitt at Flatstock and drink lots of this and hopefully not too much of this and eat BBQ and pizza slices and not sleep at all.

Back In Action

Old Bubblicious was down and out for a bit, but the guys at the Hub hooked me up with the bolt I lost a while back and we are on the road again. Feels good too. This is the bike I will be riding on the tour to raise money for my friends medical bills later this spring. More details to come, as the plan is close to being finalized. Not sure, but I may be the first person to ride a fixie from the TC to Bemidji.

ps-Yes, that is Deja Vu' in the background; and no, I did not go there for the "lunch buffet."


Good Morning

Turn the speakers up, pour a glass and then raise that glass to yourself. Now drink.



My brother-the one I'm jealous of because he gets to ride Mt. Baker whenever he wants-put this little flick together over the weekend.

I'm on board, so keep 'em comin' rbobrien33.

Champions of the North!

Congratulations Huskies! The tradition continues...see you at the state tourney on Thursday!

swing and a.....HIT

Yo, anyone that wants to get me an early/late birthday/holiday present, I'll take the coffee mug. Look here!



When someone says a celebrity looks like you, wouldn't that make you the actual celebrity? Otherwise they would have said you look like the celebrity. Right? I tell ya, it's hard being famous because people are always telling me about regular folks (like this guy) that look like me.

*thanks J-Sho.
