8966 – Friday

A year ago today, I landed in Maryland. Life’s been pretty damn good ever since.

A lot of groundbreaking stuff has happened in the year between then and now.. most of it documented here, some not so much, as I’ve been really spending a lot of time enjoying life more than documenting it.

I’m married, living in a new state, a new job, a new everything, really…. I really officially started on that path a year ago. It’s been a mighty fine journey so far… I can hardly wait for the years ahead.

Moment of Lyric – Jason Falkner “This Will Be Our Year” (Zombies cover)

The warmth of your love
is like the warmth of the sun
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

don’t let go of my hand
now darkness has gone
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

and I won’t forget
the way you held me up when I was down
and I won’t forget the way you said,
“Darling I love you”
You gave me faith to go on

Now we’re there and we’ve only just begun
This will be our year
took a long time to come

The warmth of your smile
smile for me, little one
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

You don’t have to worry
all your worried days are gone
this will be our year
took a long time to come

and I won’t forget
the way you held me up when I was down
and I won’t forget the way you said,
“Darling I love you”
You gave me faith to go on

Now we’re there and we’ve only just begun
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

Yeah we only just begun
yeah this will be our year
took a long time to come


Note to self- check out some local gaming – 8/31-9/3 – http://barkingmad.org/Laurel’s about an hour’s drive… I think that perhaps it’s time to start our own gaming warren in North Beach. Granny at Yucata suggested as much last night. Alternately, the Games Club of Maryland looks promising. (Annapolis meets every other Saturday from 6-11pm, for example.)

I’m a French Toast man myself, but this week’s Photoshop Phriday theme is utter genius: Grindhouse Breakfast Cereals. I would start buying breakfast cereal if the boxes looked like this. My friend Stacey, an immortal bride of Count Chocula, is sure to be disappointed when she clicks the link though.

Friday 5:

1. At the end of today, do you think you’ll feel spent or refreshed?
Probably pretty spent! Work, out with BHK, Tina and the In-laws at cheeburger^2 for dinner, some light shopping, and I’m wiped!

2. Do you like back rubs?
Who the devil doesn’t like a back rub?

3. When did you last mislead someone?
I’m not sure… probably tricking BHK about some aspect of her Birthday party tomorrow.

4. What color are your eyes?
Blue.

5. Friday fill-in:
Lastly, let me know how I’m doing, right or wrong.
