Hey! I saw that Jim Dedman popped up in the comments section of Steanso's blog yesterday, and let me once again take a moment to thank Jim for all that he did and attempted to do for the Steans clan. As I said yesterday, it was a bummer that we didn't get to see Superman at the Jefferson Theater, but our trip was made mostly for Roundball to see Jim and Randy, and for me to meet them. They're both really nice guys, and as for Jim, he's the first guy to ever go out of his way to try to accomodate the somewhat bizarre Superman obsession of Ryan "Roundball" Steans in such a large scale fashion. So I still send Jim kudos for making the attempt at organizing a screening. It takes a really good friend to not only tolerate their friends' eccentricities, but to champion them.
Not too much to report. I watched the space shuttle launch this morning (I actually skipped quite a bit of work to watch this, but at this point I don't think that it matters).
The shuttle went up just like it has countless times before, but it was nice to see it launch again after the disaster with the Columbia in 2003. I love the space program. In terms of its spirit of exploration, and more recently the dogged determination of the people at NASA after suffering such a big setback 2 years ago, I think our space program represents a lot of what's best about us as human beings. And it's such an optimistic, hopeful endeavor. I just like it.
Some members of Crack are considering pooling their resources in order to host some scary movie nights in October. Our hope is to show the movies outside via a projector onto a screen, possibly in the Wilson's backyard by their pond. If you have any scary movies that you love which you would like to recommend for a screening, send them to me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or maybe even post them on here and I'll add them to the list. Try to include at least a few non-slashers, because Mandy doesn't care for that sort of thing (and we plan to watch the movies at her house).
What else? Not too much to report. Still looking for a new job. Contact me if you have too much money and not enough employees.
Crack practice is scheduled for this evening. Say a prayer for us, for tonight we rock.
