Carissa and I went to Mormon Church this weekend for her sister’s baby blessing. It reminded me more of court than mass. I enjoyed it. A speaker mentioned that by following God, two brothers traveled through fertile land. When faith was lost; they fell into the desert. My work has placed me into a spot of no cultural or spiritual wealth. Everyday feels more like a battle for...

Tomorrow, I have to fly all night. For tonight, I’ll be staying awake until 5am with Wilfred, Louie, Dr. Who, and The Hour. Today has been weird. I’m taking tonight as off as I can.
The thing with the plane in the air and the big spinning fan thing happened today. Thank God.
Me: Have you heard the word?
J: No. What is it?

Liberally placing smilies in most of your emails is a good way to appear unprofessional and unable to effectively communicate. We need new people, we need to train our people…

I’m watching the Lucy marathon while Carissa knits. We astound me.
All day, I’ve been stuck in first gear. It’s been very unproductive in the sense I did not accomplish the one thing I wanted to. It’s over now. Yesterday was massive. I’ll ride off of that until tomorrow morning and enjoy the evening instead of forcing something that’s apparently not meant to be.

The Good Life
I’m sitting on the floor of my den listening to the sounds of thunder and rain while watching Revenge Of The Pink Panther with my fiancé and nieces while we play Killer Bunnies. My work days have gotten exceedingly long and times like these remind me more than ever to prioritize things.
