Didn’t I move to Dallas just a few weeks ago?Didn’t I start working for Nortel the day after that?
Didn’t I just buy my house?!
Then what the heck is this email saying that I’m getting a gift for my 5 years of employment?!!!

Hopefully, that doesn’t mean that I’m getting old.  Because that would probably require me settling down, getting married, having little rugrats, and being “responsible.”  I’ve successfully avoided all of that so far, and I plan on continuing to do so.

I plan on having a small taste of this whole, “family” thing coming soon as my house will soon have it’s “maximum family stability factor” tested when Melissa stays here for a few days before heading back to Maryland, and my mom and dad come to visit and bring my two nephews, Charles and Evan.  Yes, I will be good to see all of them; however, I’m not sure how high my “family tolerance” meter goes to.  I bet that it’ll be pushed to 11.

The Utah Swing Exchange is getting more and more on my mind as the time nears.  Yea!  I used to think that I would get some of my best new pics at Utah, but I’m starting to think that the prize winners can be the expressions I get when I tell them that I’m going to Utah to dance. 

“You’re going to Utah…to dance?!  They have music over there?””You mean, you don’t know these people and you’re going to stay with them?”

I should have my pics from my second trip to the Scar. Renaissance Faire up soon.  Word to the wise:  Don’t go when raining.  Blah.

So, I’ve realized that I haven’t posted here in a while, and I think that’s because I usually spend a lot of time working on getting all sorts of links in with my stories, which takes a considerable amount of time.  However, since I want this to be more of an online journal and less of a online link-fest, I’m now resolving myself to posting more often but less links.  Except for really cool ones.

As I’m sure most of you know two weekends ago was the Dallas Lindy Exchange.  I was one of the team leads and had a freggin’ blast.  It wasn’t until the Saturday night dance that I finally got my groove on, but once I did, I was ready to jet.  Lots, and lots of pictures and even three different albums!  (Thanks Greg and Jerry!)

Every year, Waxahachie (sp?) is blessed with two special events.  One of which is the Hallowween Fright show, and the other is Scarborough Faire.  This is a grand Renaisance Festival from April 12th to June 1st.  I went once and I’m determined to make it to every one from now on.  Gene, Becky and I herded on over there at the bright hour of 9AM.  (yeah, I know it’s not early, but for me, that’s harsh on a Sunday)  Mine eyes did feast upon many beautiful costumes and I also had a slight revelation:  Not all breasts look good squashed together in very tight costumes.  I did end up running into a number of people like the security guard for my building at Nortel, an old friend from Landmark of 4 years ago, and Erin Finn and Teel Flemming.  (You might remember these two from a Mardi Gras, and Food and Spirits Party from a while back.  They’re cool peeps.  Just trust me.)

Now, the pictures are uploaded and I’m ready to crash.Good night everybody!  (Good night Tommy!)
