Dear El-Jay,

I log into you less and less. I often find myself wanting to type out little bloggy posts about my thoughts and hopes and fears and sometimes jsut the random "here's what's up", but when I do log in and I stare at the blank page I am filled, mostly, with indifference. The actual acto fputting my thoughts on the page seems like too much work.

So I think this is an "I'll be back"... eventually... maybe... but I'm probably not checking in so much any more.

I had a good weekend, the kind of weekend I've needed for a while. MtG Regionals was large and smooth. Pretty sure we were done with Swiss plus the 1 round of T8 by 9-9:30. WoW realms run at the Den went as well as could be expected. It hit the numbers I expected it to hit. Though def fell short of what the UDE guys thought it’d do. Them – disappointed. Me – satisfied.

But it was a good profitable weekend and better than that. I got to work hard scorekeeping a largish tournament solo on the stage (occasional assists from Lems) and things went smooth. That leaves me feeling very satisfied.

Lindsey spent all day Sat with her cousin and aunt and she found shoes for the wedding.

Then we picked up cedan and went out with Dudda, Brett and some of the Iowegian WoW players. I haven’t hung out with Dudda and Brett in a long time... I find myself missing time with them quite often.

Sunday I rolled out of bed earlier than I wanted to and headed to the den to make sure things got rolling there. Then back to the hotel to pick Lindsey up and go to misty North for some pickup of random stuff to bring back to Madison. We brought back a couple couches from Angelo for Ben and an MFT of random gak from the storeroom up there that I’m going to try and work hard @ ebaying the next few weeks.

After we got all loaded we headed back to the Den to help finish up there and make sure everything was set. Got a few details to follow up with for the event today but overall (outside of a couple issues caused by lack of foresight on dudda’s part and lack of paying attention on the player’s part) it went smoothly and I think everyone had a great time. Got to see brinkman. Always good to see that cat.

The drive home was pretty nice. Lots of talking, stopped for real supper at a green mill (as opposed to drive-thruing it) and turns out we just made happy hour for a $3 glass of wine and half price apps. So we just ordered a few apps for supper and it was pretty damn good. A little construction BS traffic close to Madison slowed us down by a bit. So we were 10:30ish getting home. But it was still a good drive. And a good end to a great weekend.

Thanks to all the folks that came out and set the Northern Regionals record for attendance by a solid 10%. For all the kind words from folks who said how great the event was, and for all the texts/emailed from people who said how they wished I’d been running where they were 

Dear Live journal,

Sorry I've been sucky at giving you attention. I stare at you and am thankful for you telling me what my friends are up to but have a hard time making myself tell you what's going on.. SOO lazy.

so here's a recap... lots of stuff oging on as busy. went to London where I proposed to Lindsey. She accepted. then we went to berlin. oh also I've had lots of sausage over here. it's glorious.

Pictures on Facebook

thanks.

later

Steve

the tiling is finished. finally. tomorrow I tear up the last of the old carpet tack in the basement and start figuring out how to install this enginneerd wood floor we ended up going with. John and I care gonna install it on Saturday while Lindsey runs OPs at YGO. Looking forward to doing something handy with John.

I taught him how to change the oil in his car the other day (again). He's such a good damn kid.

Palin didn't punt the debate like I thought she might... course then again she had about 2 weeks of debate boot camp and she played it smart by avoiding the things she wasn;t comfortable answering she flat out ignored a question and then even said later "I'll answer your questions if I want to" a fairly flippant display that probably gained her a bit on the "tell in the man what to do" crowd.

I'd say neither candidate really ad... but then as I read the posts of my friends and talk with people about it without predisposing my thoughts about it, the people who are likely to vote McCain thought Palin edged it or flat out won it, the people likely to voe for Obama thought Biden won it. What's that mean?

I retook the test with all the test taking going on.... here's teh link to the original test...

http://legion-i-am.livejournal.com/278649.html

When I retook it I came in exactly the same on econmic (66% permissive) but a little more hippyish on the social at 78%. much closer to that "I'm a democrat" line than 2 years ago.

Documenting for posterity...

Steve: Wow you're gonna be gone for like... 4 days. Got plenty of time to have the girlfriend over.

Lindsey: Uh excuse me I'M your girlfriend, that means you can't have a girlfriend until you put a ring on this finger.

Steve: um. so you're saying if I marry you I can get a girlfriend? can I get that in writing?

Not sure i get the logic of it but hey.. if I have permission to get a girlfriend afer we get married.... what do I care?

Just so ya know... Here's a pretty good article explaining MOSTLY why we are where we are right now... says things in pretty easy to understand terms. breaks it down well without losing the basics. There's obv a little more to it but this seems pretty solid. Good read.
