It's almost 1 am and I'm sitting at my desk looking at pictures of Shayna and I.  I have one from a birthday party she threw me at the ESPN zone, one from NCC ball, and one from Lurray Caverns.  Looking at them makes me think back to those early times...

It really doesn't seem like 8 years.  The picture from the NCC ball is the same night that we officially started dating. 

One thing that I've always been able to do is make her laugh.  She claims that it isn't easy to make her laugh but I had her on the first date.  I love seeing her smile..

Sorry this post is just random I'm working all I can think about is going to bed and sleeping next to her.

Small World

Whenever I'm on facebook I always look at the "discover people you may know section" to see what friends my friends have added and if I know them.

Anyways, there is this girl who shows up on the list and I have no idea who she is..I look at her profile and she is actually friends with a client, a girl I worked with in college, and a girl I go to church with now.  3 completely different networks all intereact with this person.

I find it interesting how even though there are billions of people in the world, most of us are still within 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon..or even from some random person on facebook.  Maybe after this whole internet thing takes off we won't be seeing how far we are from someone but how many ways we can get to them (I know I have at least 2 ways to get to Mr. Bacon)

Old dog teaching old tricks

While in Florida last week, I got to spend 3 days with my dad and step mother.  It was a wonderful time as we ate, watched movies and played games.  Whenever we would go out, my dad would always open the car door for my step mother.  My dad did this when I was younger and for quite a while I did it with Shayna as well. Then we got a car with the remote lock and the practice faded. 

Tonight Shayna and I went on a date and took Mr. Car and his non remote locks..I opened the car door for Shayna and it felt good to get back to more chivalrous times.  I think I'm going to get rid of my remote lock.

You may not be able to teach an old dog new tricks..but sometimes the old dog can teach the young one some tricks they forgot.


I genreally try and limit football related posts because I think people find it mostly boring.  However, 2 things I found out recently made me want to share.

The first is Rod Smith retiring.  Rod was an undrafted WR for the Broncos and was probably their best ever.  He has team records, and was known for his work ethic.  He was pretty much all that remained from the Super Bowls they won.  It doesn't seem that long ago..but then again..I don't play professional football. 

The second thing that really interested me was a new offensive philosphy making it's way around HS football.  It's called the A-11 which stands for All 11.  In it they don't use offense linemen..they line up a center, 2 offset tightends, 6 wideouts and 2 QBs.  The premise is that any one can be an eligible receiver.  It's an interesting concept, and might be used as a "gadget play" in college / professional football but I don't think it will really take off.  If the DE keep contain it's basically all screen passes.

2 Things

First, a big shoutout to the Rice clan for their new addition Samuel Bartlett.  Congratulations guys!

Second, today we went swimming with the manatees.  Capt Jake from Nature Coast Charter took us out and it was a fantastic time.  The water was a little murky so we would swim and then all of a sudden be face to face with a ginormous manatee.  They were very docile and if you are ever in Florida for a couple of days I highly recommend giving Capt Jake a call.

I'm sure Shayna will have more on the excursion as well as pictures.

Rough times

I'm currently speeding with reckless abandon towards a project deadline which means late nights and early mornings to make sure all questions are answers and QC is done.  I'm not complaining, far from it.  It's just that when I saw this picture it was totally me.

So much like my wife I will post a lol cat.
