Finger Paint is going to Rock!

Things have been a little busy lately and I apologize for the time that I have spent away from the blog but hopefully the advent of something so special as Rock Band. Will make up for our time apart.

XBox360 has developed a game in which an entire band can assemble: guitar, bass, drums and vocals. And then you rock! This game has revolutionized our lives. Every time we play its awesome. We play into the wee hours in the morning.

We had Battle of the Bands when there were close to 15 people hanging at the studio (aka Rohrs home) and I am proud to say that my merry band of players won! Here is my buddy Jig trying to keep the beat!

Damn this game is awesome!

Home Ownership

I bought a house. Let me tell you that buying the house was the easy part. I sat at a conference table in a room designed by Mr. 1975 with 6 people I didn't know, my parents and signed. It took about 20 minutes. My hand didn't cramp as some may have expected and all the important papers were nicely tucked into a hot pink non-flame resistant, non-water resistant folder held closed by velcro. The cute little old man that lived in the house for 41 years gleefully gave the me the keys and we all skipped along our merry way like a deleted scene from Billy Madison.

The tough part was the painting (edging sucks), carpet removal (freaking staples), cabinet removal (damn old paint) and acquiring furniture. It's still sinking in that I own a house. A whole house.

A little update here and I hope that soon I will have the time to elaborate on one or more of these fine events, plus add pictures. But in the meantime this is my life for the last couple of weeks or so in forty words or less.

Soccer season. Fall play. Halloween bash. Bought house and waiting to close. Good friend got engaged (shout out to Shelly and Mike Irish!). Art festivals. Bilmar which equals beer. Craigslist surfing for furniture. Tired. Little sleep. Good times.
