Happy New Year

Damn.Can't believe 2007 is almost in the books. Survived another one. Looking forward to 2008. Some changes are in store. Some big only to me(the new bike!!!!)and some that definitely affect others. The biggest one is that finally I'm going to try and get some help wrestling with the demons in my head. Don't really know how that's gonna go and, to be honest, I'm really not looking forward to it. The one thing I do know's gotta help. Anyway, I'm not sure why I'm writying about this, I guess just to make myself more accountable by letting people know about it.

Anyway,enough downer crap. Hope everybody has a rocking New Year!!!! There's my 80's hair metal upbringing coming out. ;-). Happy New Year Folks!!!!!!!!!

Oh other good news. Picked up my tickets for 2 of my fave performers that are coming to Asheville soon. Henry Rollins is doing his spoken word thing on February 22nd and the mighty Drive By Truckers will be rocking the Orange Peel on March 29th. I can't wait.

happy, happy, joy,joy part 2

I've been informed that I'll be getting a digital cam for Xmas from my pops. He also told me that he'd whup my ass(yes..I'm 39 and my father still threatens to whup my ass..he's 62 and his father says the same to's a southern thing i guess..that or a dysfuctional family thing)if I bought one before then. of the new baby are coming..soon..I promise.

As far as the new hhjj....while nowhere near as hhjj causing as the's still big to me...I have finally found a store that carries Burn. No more having to stock up when in other cities. Also this way..I won't buy a ton at a time. This leads to a fridge full and I end up drinking them way to much. I really don't need 2 a day. Hell..i don't need 2 a week. They are awesome to have at the halfway point of a long ride though.

Other than all's been a slow time around here. Working a lot, picking up heavy stuff and moving it nowhere, trying to avoid the constant cookies and candies that magically appear this time of year and playing with the dog. X-mas shopping is done(Thank God) so I'm avoiding the 7th circle of hell(the mall) I'm rambling. Hope everybody had a great weekend. Later folks.

I went for the Phantom Silver color. Of course that means that I'll be using as many black parts as I can get my hands on. Soon. Soon. I keep telling myself this.

it's coming,it's coming

Somehow it seems much more tanble now that I have a tracking number from FedEx. Hopefully only a few more days til I have phantom silvery goodness in my grubby mitts. Oh boy,oh boy,oh boy. I should've had it a few weeks ago but a few minor puppy emergencies put it on the back burner for a bit. Oh happens. Anyway..I can't wait. This is what my neices must feel like waiting for Christmas. It's been so long I've forgotten.

Hope everybody has a great day and weekend. Later yall.
