THE CELEB-AQUARIUM!

Photobucket
The day before this picture was taken, it was 65 degrees. Obviously, this was below freezing. Today is somewhere in between. Oh March...

Photobucket
Baby Back Rib chips. How can I love and hate something so much at the same time?

Photobucket
I'm sure there's an interesting story to go along with this. What? I don't know...

Photobucket
St. Josaphat doing some "people watching" near my work. It's a nice perch. Apparently, he was a martyr. But, he became a saint because his body didn't rot.

Photobucket
Apparently, the worst thing you can put in the office at a children's hospital is a mechanical dancing chicken. My poor co-workers, they only wanted it to feel more like Spring...

Photobucket
Originally, Megan was the one that was called "difficult" by the jewelers. She had specific styles in mind, baby fingers, desired and exotic looks, and so on. I, on the other hand, wanted plain, simple, and affordable. Megan got her ring months and months ago and I finally got mine. Simply put, for every one men's ring in a store, there are at least 25 women's rings. Done and done...

I'd Believe That Milkshake Could Do That...

Photobucket
Oh, St. Patty's Day

Photobucket
I believe this falls under the category of "ironic."

Photobucket
Half good advertising; half too-true to be funny...

Photobucket
Megan and I's 4th anniversary DMV shot

Photobucket
We went Sabatino's for dinner, which was really, really, good! REALLY!

Photobucket
It's been really beautiful in Chicago the last few days. Pretty much since Monday. And, it won't be good again this weekend apparently. Oh well...

Photobucket
I use to think the other side of this building was hideous. Was there a discount on all building supplies as Home Depot and the architect just had to use everything?

Photobucket
When did public art turn into "meaningless crap." Let's see... Not the Egyptians...
Not the Greeks... Not the Romans... It wasn't the Renaissance... Not the
Enlightenment... It wasn't during Colonialism... Not around the Civil War... Still
decent during WWI. Great stuff by the WPA during the Great Depression... Ah,
here we go, since WWII. Post war America, what were you thinking? The the war
shock the aesthetics out of you? When will you recover?

Photobucket
My grandpa had this cookie jar. I can tell you, he didn't pay $375 for it.

Photobucket
AMAZING

Photobucket
That's all...

The Procrastination Ends Tonight...

Photobucket
Megan got me a new toy. It's a stick to put my camera on and take pics with. See how excited she is. Why don't know why she gets me toys to torture her with.

Photobucket
Went to the Oriental to watch the Addams Family play. It was alright. Never been to the theater before and that was really impressive.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Went to Cole's and watch Nathan's band, The Pear Traps, play. They're pretty good. http://www.myspace.com/thepeartraps

Photobucket
Went to a Bulls/Timberwolves game to see how NOT to play basketball. It was easily the worst game I've ever seen. But, it was free. So, I got what I paid for. Still fun.

Photobucket

Photobucket
The running of the Bulls

Photobucket
Snowball event at Navy Pier. It was fun, but really insane.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Another fundraiser. This was First Look For Charity at McCormick Place during the Auto Show, which is always fun.

Photobucket
My handy work at my office potluck party. Our wedding will look like this, but just a little bit nicer.

Photobucket
Megan and I took a trip down to Kankakee River State Park. First thing I saw when I stepped out of the car was a bald eagle. After that, I pretty much walked around staring at the sky. It was awesome.

My Valentine's gift from Megan. The most awful thing that could be sold at a liquor store. It's a few shots of Bailey's or something. And, of course, it's from Germany... Weird Germans...

Photobucket
Megan and Rose at The Couch last night having tons of wings!

Photobucket
Mike and I having wings at the Couch. Now, imagine us in tuxes. Again, it will be just like my upcoming wedding.

Photobucket
AWESOME THING OF THE DAY. One of my co-workers came up to me and said, "Congrats, you received a gift from the Random Acts of Kindness Committee." I had no idea such a committee existed. How do I join such a secretive committee and just give out gift cards and jelly belly's? Completely made going to work worth it today!

As Some of You Might Know, No One Uses MySpace Anymore...

Welcome to my new blog. Since MySpace has been relegated to the land of Prodigy, AOL,
Livejournal, and other dinosaurs, I've decided to start this up in it's place. Hopefully, I will
post more frequently once again. Enjoy!

Photobucket
Megan enjoying her Thanksgiving Indian (Indian Indian; not Native American) food up on
Devon Ave.

Photobucket
One of dozens of houses in a neighborhood of Spring Lake, Michigan that was orchestrated
to music and timed as well...

Photobucket
Megan and I's first compromise Christmas tree

Photobucket
My co-worker, Mauricio, got us frosting with a cupcake

Photobucket
These must be old because this was from the first snowfall of 2009 and we are about to have
the last days of winter around here.

An "award" I got at one of my 4 work x-mas parties. I hope it interesting like "Wow!
That guy is really interesting. I'd like to know him better" and not "Whoa. That guy
is... um... interesting" and no one likes him. Either way, it came with a Trader Joe's
gift card.

Photobucket
SANTA TRAIN!

Photobucket
Noah and his demon cats from Ghostbusters

Photobucket
For the xmas season at work, we each took turns bringing in treats themed to 12 days of xmas. This was 6 geese a laying and it's on an egg mcmuffin.

Photobucket
Megan and Sarah waiting to watch It's A Wonderful Life on the big screen in Buffalo, NY.
They take this movie very seriously and don't take kindly to making fun of Zuzu...

Photobucket
I don't think I've ever seen the Bills win. Here, they lost to the Patriots. I think Brady only
threw one pass the entire game and it was a TD to Moss. Go figure...

Stever's candy in Rochester

Photobucket
High Falls in Rochester. If you aren't from Rochester, you probably
wouldn't know there was a giant 100ft waterfall in their downtown.
If you did, you probably wouldn't have an easy time finding it.
With a little work, this could be a huge asset to Rochester.

Photobucket
High Falls Brewing has the prime real estate on the High Falls.

A castle in Highland Park in Rochester. This is one place Megan and I will have our wedding
photos taken

There should be less snow here in June...

Megan's xmas socks

Photobucket
I'll let Megan tell you about this

Photobucket
My new favorite shirt. THANKS NICK!

That's about it and look for more postings in the near future. I probably have a few hundred
photos on my camera from the car show, new years, and all sorts of other nonsense...
