and it's not like the ones they sell in D.C... this one is real! All day it was horsies, italian sausages, and deep fried everything! i tried a deep fried snickers and man... instant death never tasted so good!

here's sort of what went on all day... this is the "wang-and-balls" view favored by the breeders and not anyone else. eventing is seriously the coolest thing you can do on a horse... seriously. it's not what you're thinking, cause the horse usually spooks with all the yelling and such, but cross country is the closest thing to sex on a horse you can do! it's also just as cool, but more socially acceptable to watch(i was brought up on charges last time i tried to watch people bang'n).

Cross country is sooo cool, i hopped on one of the horses and tried to do it myself.. here's the picture!

it's also been great talking with the sis and cuz... although i learned that Garry drives around OU's campus... so here's your mission! go to his blog and harrass him on his tag board!!!

and call him 'puppet nuts'.

like a cheap shirt at walmart, i'm out.

Kate In Kentucky

This weekend is the Rolex, the biggest and horsieful event in the entire universe. Kate (my wife for those who i despise) went down there for the week to cover it for her job (which is manage'n once again for you losers who can't keep up).

This is how i envision her arrival to look like:

Apparently she broke her leg since last i've seen her... i should send flowers.

But this weekend will be completely awesome cause i get to see my sister and where she's been living for the past year! Check out her blog on the side... and if you can't guess which link is hers, you're no longer allowed to read this site. My COUSIN is also coming. So it'll be completely awesome even though it's supposed to rain and be freeze'n out.

Phavorite Phrase at the moment: " a zombie to a brain."
Random Rants: "We prayed at first base and i wondered... did i just get to first base with God?"

Listening To:

Just Finished:

OH! and apparently my wife also did a photo shoot for UK's hockey team... my only thought is, where does she get the time?

My somehow-related "Aunt", Ann West passed away a few weeks ago. I've been meaning to do this for awhile, but i haven't really understood the impact that her passing had on me.

After her passing, it was like a flood gate opened up. All these people from my past have been showing up in droves... from different blogs that i've found to random people calling me.. to all sorts of stuff.

It has helped me not grieve, but celebrate Annie... it has helped me come to terms with my hometown.

Be honest... the first time.

what everyone needs to move in

a jew, an aryan, and a 4-year-old. (with a sister, bro-in-law and 2-year-old to play hide & seek with tossed in for good measure).

that's really all you need. i pity the people who don't have such great labor at their disposal.

The Homestead

This is our new place that we just closed on today!

It's a 2 bedroom 2 bath, ground level condo. These pix are on our first breeze through back in February. They aren't the best (because the camera battery died) but hopefully will serve some purpose...

last night kate had a dream that we both had crappy kneecaps... and the thing that would fix them only fit my knees.

Arizona Extravaganza

This is our lovely trip to Arizona! complete with captions and everything!

We went on Kate's family's annual trek to the Flying E Ranch in Wickenburg, AZ, last week for 9 tough days of riding horses, eating, lounging by the pool and playing with our nephews... vacation rules!

Friday through Sunday we went to visit Sedona, the Grand Canyon and Montezuma's Castle. Here are our 127 photos of fun.

Kate's family has been going to this ranch for 20+ years, so I guess this makes me official!

It takes $50 to fill up my tank now... granted my company is paying for it.. but damn.. come on now kids, didn't we invade a country so this wouldn't happen?

We have awfully cute nephews!

These MFer's been hold'n out on me

Big U-Ville and Dennison: Xanga Blogs

Here's a massive list of all the Xanga blogs from my hometown. Mostly rednecks, preteens, and wanna-be-goths, but this is FASCINATING! HOLY DEAR GOD! I'm up a whole hour past my bed time to read about people I haven't seen nor heard from in years.

However... that means peeps been holding out on me. any of you out there who have a blog better squelch it up now... or i'll make up other words to mean "hand over your site now".


it's amazing to me that two people can look at the same thing and come away with two completely different views. like ol' veggie Shivo. some look and see death and some look and see life. I see life. In her death she's in the after life which is far better than the limbo technology was keeping her in.

it's also the same way with families. I just spent a week in Arizona (pix to follow) with the in-laws and found that most disagreements in the family are from misunderstanding the arguement. The same with the abortion... people are not argue'n the same point. If you say "we need less abortions" both sides will agree.

Another thing is, when you're mad at someone, tell them; don't tell everyone in the immediate circle and hope it gets back around to them so you can discuss it. Doing that is like taking poison and hoping the other person will suffer for it.

So that's my serious side... TIME FOR HILARITY!
