First of all here are the questions....left by my biggest fan, and perhaps my only reader. If you have any more hey, I'm here and ready to answer.
What do you consider your best personality trait? Your worst? What is your biggest regret?
My best personality trait..... at this time of my life, being passionate.
I think that it has changed over time. Back in the day, high school-ish years etc....I think my best personality was sense of humor. But that was to a fault, because it consumed my life as I found that I really didn't give a crap about anything, except myself.
Now my best personality trait is being passionate. There was a time that the only passion I had was for my sports teams....silly huh? Go Pats, Go Sox. Granted I still have a very strong passion for them, but it has grown. I have a passion for family, friends, and God, and with this combination, I find that life isn't that complicated. "It's already been sung, but it can't be said enough, all you need it love."
My worst personality trait....at this time of my life...hmmm.....let me think....which one???
In the past it was selfishness. I was completely selfish. Highschool, first few years of college. It was all about me, whatever made me happy that is what I did, even if it was at the expense of others.
Sensitvity.......not when I watch movies like The Family Stone and cry, but when I get called out or embarassed.....I get really defensive, and upset. I don't like flaws exposed, and when they are I feel vulnerable, and weak.
Biggest regret....I have a ton, and I will name two.
One, a choice that I helped make one summer.......a micro burst happened that same day in KC...it was strange.
Two, getting in a relationship winter of 2000. Bad timing. I ended up marrying that girl, which let to another regret. Shouldn't have.
Three, just thought of this......treating someone like garbage when I was a soph. in college.
There....answers....have any more questions....you know where to find me.

Let's have it....
The problem with blogs: we all think we are so close, but we really don't know as much as we'd like to think we do about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about: childhood particulars? physical traits? relationship stuff? education? Ask away. Then post this in your blog and find out what people don't know about you.

Eh, what the heck, I'll write.Monday, January 09, 2006
So I decided to give in, I haven't had the chance to write anything in my notebook at home, so I decided to kill the urge, I'll write here.
Last week I was in STL for account manager meetings. The meetings consisted of the following. Sitting in a folding chair for the better part of 8 hours, while trying to maintain your daily work, ie, quotes and other customer relations, and listening to powerpoint presentations that covered everything from what the company did last year and will be doing next year. However I think the most dreadful day came Thursday, where it was all programming, oh Lord. I have never been much of a programmer, and I know enough to get me by, but....whew, that was some presentation over nothing.
For the most part though, I learned a great deal. It was really good for me to go, and meet more of my co-workers etc.
We had an office party, and when you got there you were given a 4x6 sticker with a pen, and you were told to put the sticker on your back, and write on other people's stickers an adjective that describes them. Mine were the following.....(Cornhusker, dreamy, rookie, newby, wide-eyed, obnoxious, very entertaining, and fluffy). I think I may have forgotten a few, but that is the majority. The ones that captured my attention were wide-eyed and fluffy. So I decided to investigate. I have no idea what wide-eyed meant, and still do not as my investigations failed. But fluffy meant that I was "cool" or I heard in some circles "do-able". This I found flattering, but uncalled for.
Watched the bowl games with many of my co-workers at the local watering holes in STL. Local in terms of geographically close to the hotel. There were some great games for once.
Uh, oh yeah, New Years, got drunk, played games, spent it with my best friend, my girl and some of her friends. I showed off my skills of retaining some of the most useless knowledge. However, it is useless untill you play a trivia game, then suddenly everyone wants to be on your team.
Thinking, thinking......oh yeah....going to Boston July 13-17th for my birthday weekend. Gonna catch a game, then see things that I didn't see when I was there before.....The Freedom Trail, Harvard Yard, etc....I am excited. Maybe rent a car, go up to New Hampshire, take in some clean air. Who knows.
The Patriots are still rolling along in the playoffs!!! GO PATS!
Oh yeah, I was flattered again yesterday, while at church, I had a sorta big wig come up to me and ask me if I wanted to be a "floor manager". I asked what it entailed....she said basically directing the service set-up, flow, and giving the announcements at the begining at each service. I chuckled and said.....uh, sure, but why did you think of me, I mean what made you think that people will listen to me. She said because people here like you think you are great, a leader, and you are respected.
Alas, I think I have made it.
Live is going very well, I think that I have really made it. I feel the best that I have in years.

Johnny Cash. I think I have said it before, but run do not walk to your local record shop and pick Live at Folsum Prison. But I have to tell you, this is just a sample. This man put together some seriously good music. Listen to him. I beg and plead with you, amazing stuff. Especially songs with June.

It was a great day, broke out my new Andre Tippett jersey, Mom wore her #1 Mom jersey that I got for her for Mothers Day a few years ago. A good time had by all. We met this one guy in the parking lot. He was from Boston, I am jealous. I need to find his tailor.
