I couldn’t believe it, even after it seemed as though it had to be the case. Sometime on Tuesday afternoon, between noon and three o’clock, I opened the door. I subsequently closed the door. And upon further investigation, later that afternoon, it hit me.
My cat had ran out when the door was open.
Lucky for me I was only figuring this out when Ashley came back from her classes, so it wasn’t as though she was going to freak out or anything (riiiiight).
For the next 5 hours or so, a lot of things seemed to happen all at once.
Last weekend Ashley and I went out with a few friends and saw He’s Just Not That Into You. While the movie wasn’t all that bad (I wasn’t expecting much, and it grew on Ashley the farther along it went), the real entertainment was the cardboard promo for the new Friday the 13th with a space for your face. Commence photos, after the jump.
My Ashley turned 21 today (well, technically yesterday) and we were lucky enough to be able to hang out with a big bunch of friends and family. Her parents came to Fort Wayne from Peoria, and we were able to scrunch about 15 or so people into my apartment. Fun, fun!
Honestly, though, probably the most memorable part of the night was when we arrived at Granite City, a cool little brewery/restaurant here in town, and Ashley let us know that she had forgotten her license. Seeing as how a big reason for going out there was for her to enjoy ordering some alcohol, this was a big setback. So the night started a little later than we intended as she ran back home to grab it, but we all had a nice laugh about it.

Every year I have a really tough time managing to write any sort of self reflective post here. I’m not sure if it’s that I don’t like to get too personal here, or that part of me wonders how interesting it all actually is. But here it goes.
My birthday seems to roll into my world carried by an existential fog that compels me to sit back, reflect and compose my thoughts. Basically for my own edification. That’s what silly personal blogs are for, right?
My new apartment is now fully painted and (nearly) fully furnished. I’m approaching everything fairly practically, so I’m only adding furniture when I have a purpose for it. The paint and decor I’ve added in the past couple of weeks really brings out the life of this place, and is really boosting the creativity I experience in my office. I have some pictures to show off (before and after) and some little tips I’ve picked up through the experience.
I wouldn’t call myself a patriotic person by any means. But when your girlfriend comes in for the weekend, and you get to spend the whole day together, it’s a pretty special time. And since she was around, we decided to head over to the Roanoke fireworks with my dad, aunt, and grandma.
Oh, and we captured the whole thing with my new Flip video camera.
