well this wknd i found myself at home for the 4th straight wknd….this time it was man shower time…not mine by any means, it was Jer’s man shower…my first shower experience of any kind…it couldnt just be a shower….no no…thats girly stuff…we had to put emphasis on the MAN part…we played no games or whatever the women do at a shower…we had man food (KRUEZ), man talk (what was said at KRUEZ, stays at KRUEZ), and we gave man presents….although im sure kari would have for sure enjoyed getting tools and water hose roller uppers and mag lights….we had a good time, my cut of shoulder wasnt as good as some others i sat near and wanted to trade pieces of beef….thats not picky, thats just knowing what you like and i like me some shoulder with the most amount of beef….just tryin to get my money’s worth….but the shower went good, we all had a good time….after the shower i went w/nic and jer to what i thought was going to be a viewing of reno 911…turned out after they bought my tix, i found out we would be seeing hannibal rising…not normally my cup of tea, but it was ok….except for the loud, underage kids sitting directly behind us constantly talking and cursing…but i have a great tu-aggie story…
so we enter the lockhart theatre and im kind of hungry due to my lack of a good cut of shoulder (see above) and i decide since one of these great guys bought my ticket, the least i could do would be to buy the snacks…..well i order up a tub of popcorn, my movie theatre norm, and whats the best way to wash all that buttery goodness down? you guessed it, a large DP….and so i order up a large DP and the girl’s hand heads for this extremely burnt cup with all this 2005 natl champs mumbo-jumbo….and im like hold on….this cant be happening…these peeps are 2 yrs removed from winning the natl championship and they still have these cups…now a yr ago i can see that but cmon…..we dont have 2005 NIT co-champs or w/e our b-ball team did a few yrs ago…..so i tell the girl “im not drinking out of that…you dont have any more large cups?” she replies “no thats all we have. i can give you 2 mediums for the large price.” and i think to myself “although that is a heck of a deal bcuz that would be more than the large holds, that would put me in the bathroom a few times” so i decline and tell the guys “i would buy ya’lls drink but i know ya’ll are gonna get those cups so you can get your own drinks.” and i know what your thinking, pettyness at its best…..but the sips gotta learn somehow….but its not their fault…its the theatre’s fault…which is pathetic…now if they were just getting rid of the cups, i can understand that…but i have never seen those there before; not even after they won 2 yrs ago…..so needless to say, i got my medium and protested the theatre by not getting a large and them not getting their $.25 more…so there…..
slow wk this wk….phone hrs today as usual, but no work until the wknd…softball fri afternoon and last mens b-ball game of the yr saturday v. mizzou…should be fun..no tests just a project due at some point….cheers to a great wk
until next time

well my 2nd straight Dnow wknd is done…and i am pooped….although i am tempted to say i enjoyed this wk a bit more, i cannot…both wknds had their ups and downs, both allowed me to hang out with close friends, and both allowed me to be involved in some media capacity…and more importantly, both allowed me to be apart of what God is doing in 2 different churches and their youth groups…i also had the privilege of hearing/meeting a worship leader i’ve heard so much about, mostly from my dad…lindsey kane, who i’ve heard of periodically due to the face that i am on greg carnes email list and see her name pop up often as many major bands opening act as they come through san antone…my dad had the privilege of hearing her at an indie showcase somewhere, and he was most impressed. once again seeing how networking is so important, i also found out nic knew her from previous work he has been involved in. it was a pleasure to work with her, i enjoyed her stuff very much and look forward to hearing her during the Beach Break camp this summer. you can check her out on myspace as well as the rest of the world basically. i have a crazy rest of my wk ahead, work pretty much all day tomorrow with 2 softball games followed an hr later by a women’s basketball game i am supposed to work as well…test fri morning, then headed back home for a wknd of Jeremy’s “Man Shower” at Kruez and hopefully some more hang time with friends and family.
Until next time

busy february 07 wknd part 2 consisted of the yearly Pflugerville DNow, something i’ve been apart of for 3 or 4 years now..and for what i think to be the 2nd yr in a row, we had the same lineup for speaker and band…the speaker being Pat Camarratta (no clue on spelling but you get the idea…good stuff as always with JCB and the boys…always a pleasure to work with a band you like to listen to, get along with, and enjoy hanging out after show…they’re one of the easiest bands to mix for, but thats probably due to the fact i know the material…made some recordings of the sessions and also made a video (down below)…other than that, during the wknd i got to meet my parents for lunch with stanley at mcalister’s deli, and in the words of my father when looking for a place to eat wherever we are; “there’s always mcalister’s deli” haha….so we met them there and stayed for about 3 hours just chatting….alos had a good wknd hanging out with stanley and mrs windy, got to see my little pimp daddy jordan just basically sunday..but the time spent with him was nonetheless fun…i had my first chuy’s experience on saturday night when we all went to eat with the band, i guess i never ventured to chuy’s because there’s not one in south austin…and i had already eaten so i wasnt hungry and didnt get the full effect, but i did have the queso and that was killer…we ate in a room where the whole ceiling and i believe the whole wall was covered in hubcaps…which was interesting..got flbc dnow this wknd so hopefully i will have more to report next wk…got softball all day tomorrow, and in the cold that will not be fun!! so until next time

despite the ridicule of my readers this past wknd, i now have something to blog about….chili bowl wknd/superbowl wknd/big monday….(pic of me working that a guy i work with took)
first things first…i wasnt even supposed to go home last wknd…earlier in the wk i had received my work schedule and i was scheduled all day saturday that 3rd for tennis….not looking forward to that all wk, Friday afternoon about 230 after eating lunch w/clay i checked my work email and found out the tennis match was canceled due to wet conditions the truck couldnt be parked…so then i head home with the intent of making it before 5 to get my nap cut…got that done, had dinner with my parents and some friends…saturday brought chili bowl..my first as an adult…so i figured this would give me a chance to win….and we won…and even though i first thought i would miss playing with the youth, i really didnt….the adult team had one major difference..ok maybe 2….the first of course being soreness (which ashamedly i experienced as well)..the second being the lack of drama….and if you’ve never been on the youth teams side, you might have no clue what i’m talking about…but spend about 10 mins on their side during the game and you will experience what i’m talking about…
super bowl sunday was cool….watched the game at the pittman’s with the youth IN HD!!! and football in HD is amazing, but football in the rain in HD is even more amazing….so it was sweet…
BIG MONDAY….woke up in LOC so obviously skipped class, just really had to do a quiz for history online…and i did well i might add…had lunch w/my pops then left for college station…..crew call was at 5, an hr before what it usually is due to the doors opening for the insane fans…..so my long night began at 5 and immediately i walked into Reed Arena, and even though nobody was in there, you could feel the excitement…maybe because right when i walked in i saw Dickie V. (the most legendary college basketball guru) taping an interview to air on sportscenter….students came pouring in at 6, two hrs before tip-off….they love dickie v so i got to tape a piece with him and some of the students, which apparently showed up on half time highlights thanks to clay….the game was electric, but even more so coming off a huge win against Kansas just 3 days prior…so most of you saw the game know we won, but TU came out firing second half but showed they dont have the depth we do..and Durant is soft on the inside and before he goes to the NBA he needs to put some weight and muscle on…his pants are high waters for cryin out loud bcuz Nike doesnt make stuff that tall and skinny..anywho…but good for Nic, his NC boys squeaked by last nite….anywho….got home at 12 monday night to get up at 7am the next morning…and if you know me, you know that just dont happen…but it did and so that began my week…im home just about every weekend this month, february always being my crazy month….but this yr school and work just about doubles it….look forward to this wknd w/the boys of Justin Cofield Band….should be good times…until next time
