Welcome to the Soupbone
There's Treasure Everywhere

2009. Welcome new year... better not speed by like 2008 or suck, because I will be pissed.

In retrospect, 2008 had its pitfalls, sure... but dude, I got hired by this very website (so now I'm an asshole nationwide!) and landed an amazing & beautiful girlfriend. Not all that bad, right? Oh and yeah, I met some nice people at school, got a cat named Toby (and lost my beloved Maddie) and got on the bad side of Tom Higgenson.

My only resolution is to become a better individual, on all sides of the coin. I want to be able to look at myself and be happy with who I am & who I will be. Hopefully, you'll notice some changes in my attitude here in the blog, on the forums, in my work ethic, etc. If I become worse, you slap me into place AP Faithful. That is your God-given duty.

Penn State lost the Rose Bowl today. I'm pretty upset, but glad they stuck it out and came within 14 despite some rather large & costly mistakes. Sad to see Butler, Williams and Norwood have to go out like that... and hopefully they can have JoePa back one more season & give him the opportunity to leave on top.

With that said, I changed my avatar to a winter-themed still of my favorite comic strip, Calvin & Hobbes. Been reading a lot more of this recently, since I grabbed all my old books over Christmas. Not only are they great books to read in the bathroom, but they're just great wherever!

I can't believe I read that as a kid -- I never understood half the jokes, so you treasure it a little more when you're old enough to understand. Isn't it funny how that strip ended in 1995, yet many of the issues Calvin discusses (politically, socially, economically) are still prevalent today?

Snowing again here. Pretty hard, too. Grr. I'm sick of this shit, to be frank. I never thought snow would become such a burden -- it's beautiful & mesmerizing... until it gets in your way.

Changed my avatar to support one of my favorite baseball teams, the Cubbies.

Hoping this will be the year ... as do many other Cubs fans, obviously, so I'm gonna show my support and cheer 'em on since ya know, my team bit it hard yet again this season.

I love Lou (since he dug the M's out of the dirt so many years ago), I love Zambrano, and Ronny Cedano has my favorite ballplayer's name.

Decided to put my Butch Walker avatar to rest for a while. I'm sure by the time my birthday rolls around, I'll feel more inclined to throw it back up.

For now, I'll be having this brighter avatar and another musical hero lighting up below my name.

Joey Cape. If you don't know what the man's done, by all means, read this to educate yourself. He's awesome.

Beautiful day here in Eastern Washington. Hovering around 80 degrees, and I have to head to the library to finish up finals. How awesome!
