Months ago, my then Team Lead at work decided to wish me a happy belated birthday by unraveling 10 rolls of aluminum foil all over every inch of my office. To preface my building frustration, we are processing some of our web projects using the agile methodology. This methodology uses sticky notes to list every task through its fruition, along with unwanted meetings, as a way of communicating to others in the project where we stand - through its completion. I HATE sticky notes, and have no desire to work using this process. So in conjunction with my distaste for sticky notes, along with payback for still finding shreddings of aluminum foil in my office, I stayed after work today on my own dime, and seeked revenge...
I was really lame this year. I missed spring 'ville, and only made one night of the Fall. As much as I've gotten used to getting up at 5AM and working all day, I still haven't completely adjusted my life. I still have problems getting everything done because I haven't adjusted to having to cramming what I used to fit into a day, into a few hours after work each day without becoming exhausted. I should have been there the entire weekend, but I did get to squeeze in a free Blues Traveler show Friday night, a night at the 'ville, and a catch up day to get my life in order, bonus the opening of the year for Michigan.
I'm not one much for the zoo, but my little lovely lady keeps telling me that some of the animals that are there couldn't survive in the wild. Being in a cage might not be so bad if you loook at it that way. But for the others, like to monkeys, it really bums me out. Guess sometimes a little compromise is good for the better of the both of us..
Red Rocks, 2013. Alex, Pete, Erin, and I hopped in Pete's car and made a 2400 mile round trip excursion to the Mountains.
Lots of pic of the band, with that crazy screen behind them. Pete and I hung out with Bart and John over the few nights we were there.
This one featured Govt. Mule, Yonder Mountain, and our lovely host.
Rob and Josh, Irv and his woman, and fun filled evening at Huntington Field
This place was crowded. The band played well, but the venue isn't very accomodating from a patron's point of view.
One of the more fonder memories in my life. Hanging on the Mexican beach with my friends, listeing to four nights of kickin' rock and roll.
My buddies Alex, Sam, Pete, Chris, my cousin Dan, Erin I having a fabulous weekend..
There are a quite a few stage shots here. The light show was nothing short of phenomenal.
Aside from the boys, this 'ville featured Yonder Mountain and Todd Snider.
This was another epic adventure. The sun, sand, tunes, and good times.
This was a three night run at the Ryman. Never go back to that venue. They were militant! Great shows, with good friends.
We finally beat someone in our division, and we went with a few Bengals fans. That was some game!
This was a rainy, mud-soaked weekend, but the boys were the ones bringing the rain down!
Right before the 4th, and we even got fireworks. Somewhat of an interruption durring the show.
Erin and I decided to head up the mountain and find a place to hike. We made it to the top, where we discovered an ice cold lake. Awesome!
Erin and I hanging out with the Good People - Danni, Pat, Sam, Time, Ryan, Kyra, Frankie and Tommy and crew.
Another dose of the Ledges. Lots of pics of Phil and Sarge. Was needing something for the website, so you'll recognize some of these, as they're used throughout schwa.dubba.com
One of the best times of my life! Erin and I went down, met Alex, Brad, and the rest of the crew for a funfilled few days of colorful music in a tropical paradise.
No captions, but take a look at the sculptures. Erin and I went up and made a day of it.
