Mr. and Mrs. Alex Ellis

07.31.2005 · Posted in Friends

Alex and Missy got married last night. It was a beautiful ceremony at the St. Paul Hotel. Beautiful day, a little warm, but sunny with a slight breeze. The ceremony itself was nice and short. Leah, Missy’s sister, was the maid of honor. Alex’s best friend, Ezra, the best man. Other close friends filled out ...

High School bartime

07.30.2005 · Posted in Friends

I feel lucky to still keep in touch with a few friends from high school. A handfull go as far back as kindergarden. How awesome is it to have friends for 20 years? Even though I see them only rarely, these folks are the people who you’ll always think back to a time in your ...

A very important message

07.30.2005 · Posted in Absurdity

I received a very important voicemail this week! At least it sounds important. In fact, I’ve been getting an awful lot of these lately. I’m beginning to think somebody’s been writing my phone number in bathroom stalls. ...

The Dark Side of The Force

Tom seems to have left the public spotlight for the time being, but I ran across this made-for-the-internet video clip that I felt was only appropriate that it be shared. On the image above, right-click and select ‘save target as’ or ‘save link as’ – depending on your browser. ...

An afternoon at the Rodeo

After some very long hours at work this week, we shut down at 2:00 in the afternoon on Thursday for our company “summer picnic.” This year’s picnic was themed The Rodeo – Keep Yer Ass in the Saddle. The company brought in some sort of vendor that puts on Rodeos and we had a blast! ...

Ode to Michelle

07.16.2005 · Posted in Friends

Rarely would I spend the time to dedicate an entire post to an individual, but I just got the Saturday paper and found my friend Michelle plastered all over the Variety section. She deserves the A section, but I guess you can’t always have it all. Michelle and I used to work together at a ...

The latest

07.15.2005 · Posted in Autobiographical

Thursday brought an end to an insane week. Insanity seems to surround me, but that’s what keeps me going I guess – trying to manage it all. Sometimes the challenge is fun, and sometimes it’s not. I was happy the week was over. From work, I headed over to Dinkytown for a dinner at the ...

Pink Panty Poker

Sounds dirty, doesn’t it? That’s the point. Crispin Porter & Bogusky has launched another really fucking cool site for one of their kickass clients, Victoria Secret. Go check out Pink Panty Poker. ...

Movie mania weekend

07.11.2005 · Posted in Entertainment

Been recovering from a cold bug that’s been plaguing me for a couple of weeks, so I haven’t posted lately. This weekend was spent at Spyhouse, IKEA, meetings, friends’ houses, and on the couch – watching movies. I love watching a good movie, and I’m disappointed if a movie doesn’t turn out well – though ...
