2006.07.11 slow down:

well, since it seems my life just doesn't want to calm down long enough for me to catch my breath, I figured I'd better saunter back here and make another post. good news is, I actually heard from brian briefly last week (or was it two weeks ago…), so at least i know he's still alive and kicking.

there's been so much going on it's hard to keep my head on straight, considering that 3 of my friends have or are getting married this summer (2 down, 1 to go), my wife's birthday just passed, her dad's birthday is coming, their family reunion happened, 6,000 family member's had weddings, and there's been a big job at work looming over my head.

I managed to make time a couple days before the new Superman movie came out to have a few friends over for a (Chris Reeves) Superman Movie Marathon, which turned out to be an awesome thing to have done, with all the overt references to those old movies in the new one. (which I really liked, by the way, regardless of its flaws)

we threw a moderately low-key bachelor party for my buddy nathan, which nevertheless ended up leaving us with a couple good stories. (hint: if hiring an "on-location" stripper, make sure you get to see pictures first, and if they cancel, don't just accept replacements site-unseen… words to the wise…)

finally, nathan's wedding (and a spectacular blow-out it was) was this past weekend, and the wife and I got to hang out with the bride & groom and a few friends in pittsburgh, and enjoy the festivities. I wouldn't say the wedding was "extravagant," but it was certainly fancy (and well-scripted). The ceremony was beautiful, and the reception provided fun, and gobs of food and liquor. We did enjoy antagonizing the wait-staff though, when the bar closed during dinner. "c'mon, what would it take for you to bring me a maker's on the rocks?"

anyway, we enjoyed ourselves almost as much as the bride and groom did… and we enjoyed ourselves a LOT.

so, here's hoping my life starts to chill out a little, and what with finally finishing all four seasons of Lois & Clark (I've been on such a huge superman geek-out for the last 6 or 8 months, it's not even funny), I'm anticipating either starting to get to bed on time more regularly, or actually using my free time to do some of the projects i've been neglecting (like this old girl�bipolar�herself)

we'll see! (wish me luck.)
