Sometimes I think I'm blessed not through grace, but because I'm so freaking awesome. How else could one possibly explain this? I know that Texans are proud, but damn can you blame us? LOOK HOW COOL THIS IS? They say Texas is God's country. This is surely such a sign, because I really don't deserve it, yet here we are, and I've been waiting one-hundred and one years for this moment:



Since my boy was being a butthead, I invited his friends over to spend the night and stay up play video games with me. We had a blast, yes, even my son. Loaded the `Asian Dynasty` expansion for Age of Empires III which was just great, immeasurable fun (my boy and I were disappointed they omitted Korea though), the kids had a double-length pre-testing class for taekwondo belt-testing this coming Saturday. This evening he and I watched The Forbidden Kingdom. 30-seconds into it he quips, "So this is where you got that music." THAAAAAT'S my boy...

And giving credit where credit is due, I used scottchurch's photo tip (NSFW) which helped me take my beer photo. Thanks!

heh - kidlets. Yeah, I had a blast. We're going to have a busy week that's for sure, and a busy weekend too, but I'm going to try my damnedest to fit more in!

*nods* busy isn't always terrible. it's at least seldom boring. How long will the belt test and ceremony be? *hugs you and him*

i've probably said this before but it is SO cool that you spend so much time with your kids

Ha! They probably don't think so! But seriously, I just want to try to get them to experience as much as possible, as I was taught by my father before me. They've had to memorize the tenants of taekwondo (courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, indomitable spirit) and it always THRILLS me (me more than them) to be able to provide real-world examples of how we can apply them in our own lives ;)

I drank one last night, and wept. Tears of joy & happiness overwhelmed me. I seek ways to incorporate it into my life.

Hey! You know what just dawned on me? Maybe you ought to come over late on Saturday night and help me spank those boys? Have you played Age of Empires III? When you get here I'll load you up with the "Asian Dynasties" expansion. Maybe allocate 90-minutes to watch The Forbidden Kingdom with me?

w00t indeed, sir!

As awesome as that sounds, I don't think I will be able to do it this Saturday :( We have my nephews birthday party Saturday afternoon in Ft Worth and then I plan on taking Glodowg out on a date that evening to the Dallas Symphony!

Maybe next time though??? Raincheck???

RAINDROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY HEAD

Oh absolutely - I've just penciled you in for "some future Saturday." What concert are you going to see? I love a symphony orchestra!

Re: RAINDROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY HEAD

It is the Super-pops Bugs Bunny on Broadway, should be an interesting time!

Got the tickets free from our boss at work!

"Maybe you ought to come over late on Saturday night and help me spank those boys?"

Are you becoming a corrupt Catholic Priest,Baptist Minister or Scout Master? Your words could REALLY be taken out of context.

Edit, Baptist Minister, Methodist, same thing right.
