Um... Something

I spent the day packing and sorting. There's a hell of a lot of crap around here... just packing books and cds has me with two huge piles of boxes. And I'm not done with the books... I've still got a bunch upstairs.

This has been getting a bit aggravating. I clean out one room, have everything packed and orderly, and in working on the next room, the "clean" room suffers a bombing. All of the little oddball items end up there, and I've got to go back through and clean it up. I know there's got to be a better way, but this place isn't very big... not much room to work, period.

Anyway, I've spent most of the day jamming on the Spudmonsters, and Stone Sour. Yeah, different styles, but it puts you in a great mood, and you can get a hell of a lot of work done. However, as it got later, I tossed my San Quentin DVD that my favorite sis got me for Christmas. It was supposed to be for background sounds, but I couldn't help but stop and watch.

Damn cool, it was. Video of the concert, and interviews of inmates and staff.

My pa had the original album, and hearing some of those same tunes, I felt like he was sitting there in the room with me, 'specially "Orange Blossom Special." Cash was easily one of his favorites, and has become one of mine, too.

Well, shit... my train of thought derailed somewhere along the line, no pun intended. That's what no sleep do to a foo.

Ah... I'll give you the links, and leave you with this:

Tammi told us to come over here and give you sh!t about your birthday...I can't do that to a man who posts Johnny Cash. It would be almost...communist...

Happy Birthday!

I have a very special birthday post on my site JUST FOR YOU! I hope you like it, I worked extra hard on it to get it just right.

You know, just enough sentiment, but not so much that it's mushy. I think it has great balance to it and says all the "you're great, happy birthday" kind of things, but still manly. Or some crap like that.

Anyways, Happy Birthday T1G! Hope its memorable. (Don't forget your ginko biloba, I hear it helps you people.) ;)

Happy birthday from Bumfuck Texas! I'm sorry I'm not there to raise a glas in person, but maybe we can do that when I get home??

Have a great day, Big Guy. Love ya!

Happy Birfday buddy. You're just like the older (much older) brother that I've always wanted... only drunker, less articulate and with a worse haircut. :)

Glad you liked your present... I still want to borrow it someday... :)

your favorite sis
