Five Weeks of Nothing... And Now This

See, It's June already and I've blown off the blog for a whole month (5 weeks really). I just can't seem to strike a balance between filling daily posts with dronings about my life or blowing the whole thing off waiting for something to happen. For the most part my life is in such a rut that not very many interesting things happen to me personally. I don't race cars. I don't go out drinking and get into bar fights. I'm not an international supermodel that's actually a secret operative for a super secret government intelligence agency. I'm just a guy with a family, a house, a job and 168 hours a week -- like everyone else. Well almost everyone else. I'm doing better than either of my brothers. I'm not going to go into a lengthy rag on them (but boy could I) -- it would server no real purpose and not even make me feel better for venting.

Well a few things have happened that I should have taken the time to chronicle here. The descriptions would probably have been much better.

  1. I'm going to Microsoft's Tech-Ed in Atlanta from June 17th through the 21st. I have my airline and hotel reservations and I'm signed up for the conference. So now I can be one of 30,000 tech cattle hearded through the Microsoft experience. I actually have real business reasons for wanting to go. If I can get certain questions answered I will hopefully spend my small budget more wisely.

  2. After that I'll be going to Texas with the family. We're planning to go to Houston and take Duncan to the Space Flight Center. We'll probably go to the Gulf Coast too but the whole schedule is pretty up in the air at this point.

  3. We bought the IRON CHEF book and have been reading all about the main show we watch on the Food Channel. (That and Tamara like "The Naked Chef".) They just had Three days of new Iron Chef battles including the rematch between the Food Channel's Bobby Flay and Iron Chef Japanese Morimoto. Morimoto won the first battle but Flay complained about several aspects of the match. The rematch featured Japanese Lobster as the secret ingredient. One of the things Flay made for the panel was a fresh corn tamale with slices of boiled lobster. The panel seemed to be puzzed by this and didn't seem to be giving Flay's food as good of comments as they were Morimoto's Neo-Japanese food. But in the end Flay won the battle and recieved the people's ovation. I think Morimoto's downfall was the Tempura Lobster Sushi Roll with Lobster Liver sauce.

  4. Duncan's teeball team has finally formed. He's playing on a six and under team for the YMCA. The team is called "Wild Storm." He's having fun and can really knock that ball of off the tee. So far he likes batting and running the bases better than catching or throwing the ball. He's got a really good coach that works with all the kids and gets the parents involved too. Duncan has a game today at 5:00 pm so I gotta get out of work on time.
