I, Vagabond

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Well I had a little moment and thought I would do a brief post (not brief) just to catch you, dear reader, up on what’s going on with my life right now. It’s crazy complicated and I’m really tired. I don’t even have my contacts in but I thought I should post something quick anyway. (not quick – 1400 words long! wow!)

First off, let me apologize for falling off the wagon with the blog-a-day challenge. Things got crazy busy with the project I’ve been working on and I just lost focus on the important things in life – such as blogging, of course.

Just Some Ramblings.

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Sorry about my rushed entry last night. I had about 5 minutes to write it. Of course I went back later and added the necessary image… Still digging the heck out of that movie. Can’t wait to get it on DVD…

So this morning, Parker took me to work again. Work is weird. I’m working on this big pitch project and am stressing to meet an upcoming deadline – and yet I technically still don’t have a job! It’s the weirdest thing. But I’ve been working hard and I’m getting really excited to come up with cool ideas and bounce inspiration off my brothers and other genius minds…

Bachelor From Hell!

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

OK, so I JUST ran in the door to blog before midnight! I think I might make it in time! This blog challenge is awesome. Thanks, John!

This morning, Marylynn and the kids went up to the cabin in Twaine Harte for her family’s annual vacation. They’ll be gone for a week. I am sad. I miss them already. However, I must admit that there’s a liiiiitle bit of fun in being a bachelor – at least for a short amount of time.

I worked late today, then went over to the office in Anaheim where I met up with my old friend Sean Jiminez who loaned me a DVD copy of an animated short he did (which is AWESOME by the way) so I can finish the project I’m working on. Long story – running out of time before midnight.

So afterwards, Parker and I went by the $3 movie theatre and just saw “Drag Me To Hell”. It’s a PG-13 Horror / Comedy movie by Sam Raimi (who also did the Spider-Man movies and the Evil Dead movies if ya didn’t know) It was the most fun I’ve had in a theatre in a LOOOONG time. VERY VERY SCARY and also SUPER FUNNY. I highly recommend it. OK, Gotta run!!

Pop Music

So I met the guy that made this video yesterday:

Cool, huh? It’s cool to be surrounded by creative people again. I’m really enjoying creating new stuff, coming up with cool ideas and inspring others who inspire me. Magic Store / Yo Gabba Gabba is a place where magic happens. Believe that!

Somebody Call the WAAAHmbulance!

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

I can’t really talk about the big things that are going on around here at the moment. I’m exhausted and saddened by the crap and turmoil that Parker is going through. Yesterday was a great day if you’re into drama. I’m not, so I won’t elaborate on that.

So instead, I’m going to complain about what’s going on in my own life. Can I complain for a few? Too bad, I’m going to anyway.

Window Markers

Monday, July 20th, 2009

Seeing as I just barely got my post in yesterday at two minutes to midnight (Iron Maiden! Woooooooooaaaahhhh!!), I don’t have all that much new to talk about, so here’s some more pics from yesterday! This time it’s from the BEFORE church. We busted out some window markers on Gramma’s big sliding glass doors and this is what happened:

Quick Visit to Andru

Me and Andru. I guess he likes Bad Credit now! Awesome!

After church today, we had a wonderful dinner provided by Don and Mary and their awesome barbcueing skills. Parker joined us and fun was had by all. While we were rolling around on the floor, trying to digest the delicious meal, he and I decided that it would be a great time to go visit Andru. Now you probably don’t know who he is, so let me fill you in. In 1990, our then-parents (mom and the now ex-step dad guy) adopted a set of newborn twins from Romania. Lara Alexandra (Lara to us, but she now goes by Allee, unless she changed it again…?) and William Alexandru (we call him Andru). They were tiny little preemies that had a really rough time in the primitive hospitals in the recently uncommunist country.

Pictures, You Guys!

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

So I Sarah lent me her battery and charger (lucky we have the same camera!) and I was able to take some pictures at Parker’s little get together yesterday! Now I can take pictures! I’ve really felt super antsy without a working camera on this trip. So many missed opportunities. For reals. But NOT ANY LONGER! woo hoo! So, here’s some pictures from last night!

Happy Birthday Parker!

Hairy Potty

I went to the see Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince with Parker, Christian, Shanna and Popi tonight and it was AWESOME! Really a good movie. Probably the best adaptation yet because they didn’t try to cram in every little detail. Great work, guys!

Then Parker and I stalked Marylynn and Sarah at Albertson’s and shopped with them. It was awesome and a fun time was had by all.

I would have gone into more detail, but I”m almost out of time for my daily blog! and plus, I have to let Sarah use the computer for her own daily entry! meep!
