Questions, Questions, Questions . . .

For me, it's really hard to be between projects. As my car project comes to an end, I've started to panic that I'll never make anything ever again. These are stupid and whiney thoughts, but there you have it. As I'm starting to look forward, I'm starting to work on a series of conspiracy theories. I've been reading some books about them and getting ideas (for example, the names of suspect people should always be put into parenthesis). So, that's where it stands at 9:33 am, happy daylights savings!

A Special Thanks

Last month our friends Jim and Nat visited us from the UK while on vacation and two days ago we recieved an amazing collection of hand made postcards a-la Nat. We'll have to buy them a pint or two next time we're in London.

Enough already!During the past week and a half I have started to slip with my non-smoking regime. Quitting smoking has been one of the hardest things for me and so today, after buying a pack -> smoking two and then throwing it away . . . I have decided that enough is enough. I just returned from buying the patch (which this time I will see through until the end) and when urges arise, I'll vent them here. A healthy glass of scotch to my pursuit, here goes . . .

Done With The Slackin'

Oh what a horrible blogger I have been!!!
After recieving some hate mail as a result of my lack of posting, I have decided to right this ship and begin again. Truth be told, life's just been rather busy. Above are some photos of a recent trip down to Havana Illinois where Robin and I went to visit her Aunt Wendy, Uncle Bob, Cousin Jorie and Mike. We did it all: went to an apple orchard, visited a brick factory, cooked hotdogs on a stick and went for a walk through a nature preserve. I love getting out of the city and there's no place I'd rather go than Havana, Illinois.

Fierce Beast Meets Festive Balloon

Fun with Food

Food can be really fun. On Saturday night, Brian and I hung out with some fruit at Sarah Bierman's party. Two days later, Jim and his wife were in town from the UK and we met up for drinks and more food. We had been corresponding for a while but had never met and it really a good time.
