Jr High Drop Out

Me, as described by a friend

In preparation for meeting me for the first time, a friend decided to prepare his girlfriend for the experience by hitting the highlights of who I am as a person. My opinion? Nailed it.

I'm thankful for all the great people in my life

Rarely does a day go by that I'm not reminded in some way how smart, kind, and capable the people are that surround me. From intelligent conversations, to friendly jokes, to well-crafted debates, I have managed to cocoon myself with people that rock way harder than me. Score! I win.

Because Halloweeen Always!

I spent last night carving a pumpkin and making homemade pumpkin pie and pumpkin cookies with the family and two good friends. Fun night.

UFC 119

As is the norm lately, I headed out to the bar with friends to watch UFC.  Tonights fights weren't that great, but Matt made it out, and Christine was back from Florida.  That was good.

LOL at my own joke

I just told Shep that Bryan couldn't sleep on his stomach because he's afraid of heights.

UFC without Me

My wife, Katie, Christine, and Denise (not my Denise) are all enjoying a night of UFC tonight.

I got sent a pic as tangible proof of the fun they are having.  I'm jealous…but Gen Con is fun too.  :)

Feeling Thankful

I have managed to gather a good group of friends around me, despite being a pedantic jerk. That's kinda cool.

Successful cookouts and amicable hostage exchanges

A bunch of my friends came over for a cookout today. Shep was in town and showed up. Brent came with his family. Bryan (He Who Shall Die By My Hand) came over. Will showed...well actually Rebecca showed in his place. Much fun was had. There was chicken, derisive joking, beef, fire, corn, and vitriol. All was good in the land of Caudron.

As a side-note, I exchanged one item for one item with Bryan. He received his Mystic China book back in exchange for a Conan: Tower of the Elephant graphic novel. The exchange took place in a semi-lit hallway with nervous glances and distrustful scowls.

You, too, should read the new Conan: Tower of the Elephant:

If you prefer the old school Conan comic, get the original:

A Halloween Followup

As you may know, I get the occasional comment about my blog from the provided "Make a Comment" links. The door is always open should someone really want their comment made public. This is the case today with Shep. He's requested that I include his addendum to my Origin of Halloween post. So, without editing or censoring, I present tonight's guest blog entry from Shep:

My favorite part of Holloween is when teenage kids unsuspectinly bite into an apple with razor blades stuck in it. Then they turn to you with eyes wide and a razor blade stuck between their two front teeth, like some kind of demonic dental floss. They mumble something like "Help me!" but you can't understand them because it comes out like, "Helphmpfp Muuhhh" Hahahaha! Good times.

So, now you know. If you reply to an entry of mine and want your comment known (as long as it's not just "Tom is the g@y sux0r!" or something like that) just make it known in your reply that you want it posted. As you can see, I'll post just about anything.

So Shep, now that you're famous, you'll be beating the womenfolk off with a stick! Look forward to your riches and glory.

The Case of the Haunted Hayride

I, Denise, Cadence, Brent, Kyoko, Hanna, Chris Susko, and Chris Susko's woman all went to the Hunt Club Halloween thingy last night.

Firstly, regardless of what lies others might spread in the wake of this event, I carried myself with dignity and respect.

Secondly, much fun was had by all. There were long lines and stupid, lying pizza men, but once you get past that, the night was brisk but not cold and the events were well done. Those that didn't go are worse for having abstained.

Denise and Kyoko and the children (Hanna and Cadence) spent most of their time in the main barn area with the music and dancing and *GASP* karaoke! You haven't lived til you've seen a drunk dude in a poor wolfman costume singing along to Warren Zevon's Werewolves of London. It hurt my ears and soul in ways unspeakable.

Memorial Day weekend

All went well. I visited Dr. and Mrs. Kessler (who mentioned that they'd seen my blog!), finished upgrading Meghan's computer to Ubuntu Linux, played some D&D, and took Delaney to breakfast. I also chilled out a great deal.

The Cornfield...OF EVIL!

It's that time of the year again, when the guys all go to the Hunt Club's Halloween Festival. We are going tonight. I dig it. You should too.
