Good evening everyone. Sorry about my absence last week. I was unexpectedly busy, and as I've said, if it's not Tuesday or Wednesday, you probably won't be seeing posts from me otherwise in the fall. Think football and poker... It's late for me to be posting tonight, but I took a nap, so... :P I'll keep it relatively short anyway. I'm taking great liberty with the post title and the Green Day lyrics since I'm ready to wake up now, and not at the end of September. Cooler temperatures and full blown football are just around the corner.
There is something that I wanted to address last week, when I thought that I would be writing...
After leaving a job interview recently, I decided that I wanted to have my picture taken, since I was wearing a dress shirt and tie. So I headed to a nearby casino bar (because that's what all of the cool kids are doing, right?), and I had a bartender snap this photo. Seventy of my friends on Facebook have 'liked' this gem, bless their hearts. Now let me tell you why I don't like this picture... My tie is really crooked. I wish that the bartender (or someone) would have said something. Oh well... Then I have this red mark that makes it look like a big mosquito bit me right between the eyes. Didn't happen, but nice blotchy look nonetheless... My expression. Of three photos, THIS was the best one. Awful... And then there's the matter of my hair... My hair color has gone from blond to really dark brown over the years. I occasionally lighten it, but this time it appears that I grabbed the "Serial Killer Blond" box from the shelf. Do you remember the end of 'Silence of the Lambs,' where Hannibal has escaped from Memphis???
This was the best photo that I could find, but trust me, if my hair wasn't gelled back, and I had a witty personality, I could be Hannibal Lecter... :) Serial Killer Blond...
Alright, I'm gonna have a midnight snack before I crash, but have a great week and I'll see you soon...
