It’s been wayyyyyyyyyyyy too long. I know. I’m sorry.
Shall we recap the last few months? We’ll start with where I left off…the karaoke contest. Women and men had two separate prize pools. I won first place among the women. Jimmy Thoma was crowned top dude. (As has historically happened quite often in my experience. The Jimmy winning thing, I mean.) Then, the bar had us do a surprise sing-off to win a trip to Vegas. I was a little tipsy by then and attempted to bribe the audience with some free merch and allegedly shouted something into the microphone about being a “legit artist.” (Facepalm.) (I’m still very, very sorry, y’all.) Jimmy attempted to bribe the audience by, well, just being awesome at his performance. Maury, the owner of the Beacon, decided to give us both trips to Vegas, because she is one of the coolest people on the planet.
Life remained relatively uneventful until June, when we crammed a 28′ semi, one Ford Fusion and the back of a Chevy S-10 with everything I owned at the time, and unloaded it into its new home in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
And then, folks, $h!t got real.
I spent the months that followed forehead-deep in cake tasting and vendor interviewing and money spending and general decision-making of a degree that should only be reserved for CEOs and arbitrators.
And, at long last, I’m MAWWIED!
Through all of this, I’ve had the good fortune of being able to keep my job and work from home, which has been a blessing.
I’m hoping soon to post a blog with some actual content, but until that day comes, I’d like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! I will be attempting to cook a dinner for two with enough courses for 12. Time to break out the good China, and be thankful that all of our major life events are over for the year. *Clink* Talk to you all again soon!
