Jarad's Birthday was last Thursday. We celebrated on Friday night at his favorite bar, Einsteins. Jarad had way too much fun and at the end of the night had some very entertaining convo topics. We talked about Oprah and her role in "purple nurple." I became appointed the Governor of State Parks but was tricked because Jarad was going to be my boss. He became boss because he did Ann Richards, which I had to regretfully inform him that she passed away last year. We also talked about Pres O. among many other topics. Oh the stories you have from ridiculously drunken nights (I remember it all because I wasn't drunk. Someone had to be the responsible one and get the birthday boy home safe.) All in all I think Jarad had a good birthday, who can complain when they got Cracker Barrel for breakfast day of your birthday and then go to your favorite bar the night afterwards. He's already gearing up for his "Dirty Thirty" party. I can hardly wait (insert sarcasm).
We watch The Bachelor and the people in the show have a video montage of the beginning of their relationships. At Christmas, you get cards with newsletters inserted. They tell you what has happened in the last year and what they have planned for the upcoming year. We have MySpace and/or Facebook and people put their lives on there. People enjoy scrapbooking to make a snapshot of the major events in their lives. People take time to write in diaries. I at different times have tried all those mediums, well except the Bachelor although I did apply one time :-) and this Blog is an effort to combine all those outlets so that I have some place to document, share, understand, remember, etc. all the silly mundane things that happen, the monumental things, my thoughts and so on. It won't be scrutinized terribly for grammatical errors but simply a flow of writing. It won't be shared with everyone that I know but those that I feel will appreciate it. It may at times be very personal, ok maybe not because that's not me but it will be more than a post of pictures. It will tell a story not only of my life but those around me.
I have been wanting to put my thoughts and experiences in writing. So here is my effort and hopefully a whole hearted one.
