B&W Family Picnic

So the Big B&W Family Shindig Picnic Thingy was last night. Lotsa people came, but not nearly enough to finish all the food we had prepared. Eek. It wasn’t organized completely wondefully, but everything really seemed to go off without a hitch (heh heh).

They started off, basically ...

A Heartbreaking Work

due to visitor complaints, i’m hereby updating my website. here’s something:

Well, he got into some trouble at school,” I tell Deirdre. “What kind of trouble?” “Well, you know how you’re not supposed to bring guns to school?” “Right.” “Well, I had told him not to bring ...

Too Much

Today was remarkably similar to yesterday, except that it seemed to make up for yesterday’s speediness. Today, for the first 8 hours at least, dragged on and on. Scott was out for the day, and I didn’t get all that much accomplished, but work still seemed unusually slow ...

Just About the Best Mediocre Day Ever

What an evening! What a day! I’m slightly embarassed to be so pleased with this rather mediocre day (hmm… the dictionary says “mediocre” literally means “halfway up a mountain” — weird.) but it’s just seemed too good.

Work went really really fast this morning… it was 1:30 before ...

Simpson’s clouds

Hope everyone enjoyed the Simpson’s clouds yesterday afternoon. Beautiful. I was stuck at work and admired them through the blinds. I pray for a weekend just as nice. There’s much to do.

Flex Time

I think I’d better start writing my ramblings during the daytime, while I’m at B&W. I never seem to have the motivation once I get home. I’ve figured it out, actually. It’s totally a subconscious state of priority.

For example. I have to do this ...

Busy at B&W

I’ve kept busy all day today. I’m quite impressed. And here it is… turning the corner of 4 o’clock - I get off at 5, but since I haven’t taken any breaks - and lunch was just 5 or 6 minutes long, I think I’ll leave a ...

Hey Tony!?

Any word on those Guster/Mayer, Ben Folds tickets yet? I wanna order them this week if you can’t get to Grand Emporium by then. I’m worried about sell outs. Give me an email .

New week of work. Lotsa mini-projects on my platter. Can’t think of any ...

bowling shoes

We went bowling tonight. I rolled the two worst games of my life, like an 89 and a 83 or something like that. Typically, I’d be grumpy afterwards for two games like that, but not tonight. Noooo

I wore my Diesel “bowling” shoes, which I’m fairly certain are ...

i landed a job at B&W

There is so much to say. But I haven’t the energy tonight. Well, we’ll see.

First of all, a bit of an update is necessary. I graduated bartending school last Friday (a week ago today) and am now a Certified Mixologist. I’m still undecided whether I’ll ...

bartending school finals

I haven’t been a perfect bookkeeper the past few days. it’s this bartending thing. Late nights, long hours, and physical and mental strain. A lot like football… at least, that’s what we’ve been taught. “If your shirt ain’t dirty, then you ain’t playin’.” I ...

bartending school

Okay… I’m at Tony’s now… for the week. Ryan and I are up here for bartending school — we had our first two sessions earlier today. It’s going to be a long week, though, I can already tell. 8 hours a day of… well… mostly standing, but also ...

strange night… in chanute!?

I really don’t know what to think about tonight. On some level, I should be pissed. Or creeped out. Or intrigued. Or pleased. Or something, but I have no idea what to think. I’m just emotionless and, well, kinda stumped.

Bryan and I started the night in the ...

party promotion

I saw my parents off tonight. They’ll be gone for the next week. I need to have a party. I’ve tried in the past, and they’ve failed miserably (miserable is a NICE word). The problem was a lack of publicity. And that’s still sort-of the ongoing ...

finally home

Alright, so I’ve let this slip a little bit. I had a busyish weekend, and the lack of my computer and a Ethernet connection sorta damper my ability to do this ‘ramblings’ thing so often. I’m working on that though…

I’ve talked to our local Internet guy ...

skybound

I’m so very happy today. Everything is floating upward. Everything is sky-bound : trees, clouds, souls, bicarbonates, dead skin cells.

My final this morning went as well as can be imagined. I was scared to death of this one - mostly because I didn’t study a lick for it - and ...

where are you going?

Well, it’s almost over. Another year down. I feel like a veteran already, but this is only three years. Three years? It’s constantly a mind-trick: should I say two years here at K-State, three years of college, two years of actual college-work? I dunno, it feels like long-enough ...

depreciation of tips

I’m starting to need a haircut again. Geez. It’s always a problem, about this time, because I get my hair done in Kansas City - an awesome place called BJs on Johnson Drive. Last time I was in, Michael, the guy that does my hair had to get there ...
