Procrastination

I’ve spent the last few hours rushing to get my application together for the Illinois Arts Council grants. Deadline: tomorrow. Serves me right for waiting around. Matt was trying to motivate me on this a week or two back, but did I listen? Ugh. I think I’ve got most of what I need. Gotta wake up early tomorrow, and do…

Lunch break

Heading out for a slice of pizza. Left to right, it’s Chris, Justin and Ben. I lagged behind a bit, to take this snapshot. What is it about bikes and talismans?

Rëspëct thë ümläüt

Matt brought in some CD’s today, which Ben and I both were quick to burn and add to our collections. I know I’ve shown you my heavy metal past… but I have yet to show you the airbrushed Queesnrÿche jean jacket that I still have, stored at my home in Indianapolis. One day… one day…

Lots of great photographs and entries dating all the way…

American Bobble

This is a gift Justin got from his parents, a while back. It’s sitting on his desk, and I was killing some time as he was shutting down for the day.

The Cadillac of Bolognas

Let me fill you in on some history. Every morning, I get my coffee at a place called Artisan Cellar. There’s a Starbucks in the building, but I got turned onto this place thanks to Justin and Ben. Over time, we’ve become the regulars here. To the point where we’ve now got tabs that we keep, behind the till. Artisan…

Updates

I’ve got some photos from yesterday still to post (and I’m still backlogged as far as the pics from Alex’s bachelor party). Right now though, I’m just not feeling like doing all that much blog stuff.

Meh

I spent most of the day on the couch. Watching episodes of West Wing (Season 2). What’s slightly disturbing isn’t the fact that I’ve already seen all of Season 2 once already. It’s that I’m wondering if Season 3 is out yet on DVD.
