There was a fire in the neighborhood. My wife said, “That’s all it takes for all the cockroaches to come out of their houses.” She was talking about our neighbors which we almost never see. the biggest news: NEW FREAKIN’ CARPET! SO nice. My ears got clogged with wax. pretty gross. Sucked, too. Also, bought a new camera. So far, I like it.
Went camping twice. One trip was fun, one was horrible. I wore a lot of WFMU t-shirts. That’s what happens when you have about 20 of ’em. I cleaned out the car port which was VERY satisfying. Other than that, work, work, work.
This was a pretty busy month. Spent a week in McCall Idaho. My home computer workstation completely died. Spent two days messing with it. Couldn’t even get Windows to reinstall. It has now been replaced with a new iMac. Wasn’t ready to spend the money but I had to have it. Our dryer broke so we had to replace that as well. Saw a great art installation in the Presidio in San Francisco. Oh, and I got a concussion from messing around with my friends. It lasted a good two weeks.
I’m Back! Rarin’ to go. What happened in May? Hmmmm. That was a long time ago. Can’t really remember too much about it. We did buy a new TV. Exciting, right? Went to AZ to see the folk. Was given a brand new computer at work. (I REALLY needed it.) Got as free hug from a dude in Portland.
Well, I don’t know what to say. It WAS an important month for sure. Life-changing even. If you don’t know about it yet there are a couple of hints in the photos about a big change over at the BPH home office.
Feelin’ a bit fat so I started riding my bike a bit more. Got a bunch of prints I had lying around ready for framing. Hit the snowshoe trails one day. Saw Sloan in Portland. Had a date with a cup in Eugene. (It was very romantic.) Other than that it was work, work work.
Is it, “Twenty-ten”, or “Two-thousand ten”?
Anyway we were in Mexico for a bit. That was great and very much needed. After that it was back to work. I did manage to finish and send out my annual mix CD (a DOUBLE this year!) which was great. Bought a wonderful ukulele from Wildwood Music in Arcata, CA. (Thanks for the great deal, E.P.!) Saw Avatar. The only thing I can say about it is, “Why are the pretty ones so dumb?” The script and story were SO phoned in. Also I began the process of framing the eight pieces of artwork that have been accumulating over the last year. I also sent five business envelope shaped photographs to a random stranger from the Friends of Tom message board. I hope they enjoyed them. (The person who was supposed to send me something never did. Lame.)
Had a COLD beginning to the month. Had a pipe freeze and everything so we were without hot water for a day. At least it didn’t break. Spent a lot of time indoors due to the weather but did get out for a hike on the old birthday. (42 bitches!) And we also went to Mexico for the new year.
