So, it's been a few days, and I have a good excuse...so be patient. I am in Cali Baby! the Two cuties above are Patrick and Adam, Tim and Karen's boys. Aren't they cute! Thanks to Tim and Karen for letting me stay with them.
Not too much time to write now (right now), the photo below is evidence of why I can't write a blog today. I have to Drive back to Tucson now. May the force be with you.

Ok, I'm in the middle of my first day of school, and I really shouldn't be blogging. But one thing has been brought to my attention, so I want to give credit where criedit is due. The fine photo posted with my first blog was taken by my brother Joel at the Bucktown Pub in Bucktown, Chicago last Saturday night. Good Times! Above is a not so great photo that I took of him. Apparently I had more to drink that night!
So about school, good to be back, and to have a purpose again...but now I have to get my rear in gear, and stop surfing music sites and doing sudoku puzzles and watching netflix. Back to practicing a on regular basis and studying Italian. The drama in my life is now limited to figuring out what I need to do for my directing minor. Today I phoned in my resignation to Opera Southwest, and I will no longer be singing Madame Butterly with them in February. This is a huge relief for me, I sure I wouldn't have been able to balance my school schedule with that performance.
nugget of the day: From Slate.com a report on podcasts and what is even worth hearing (I have already discovered that big names like CNN and CBS Sports just recycle crap and distribute it as a podcast!) Read the list here.

Ok, wow. My first blog entry (not that anyone is going to read this). I almost feel some sort of pressure, like I'm not going to be cool, or witty, or, yikes! popular. But I march on....
I am back in Tucson, and thank God for the sun. He had removed it from Chicago, punishing the city and its people. But here in the desert, we are blessed with it in the winter and cursed with it in the summer (not that I have every really been in Tucson in the summer!)
Ok, Movie season is coming up...so lots of exciting hours spent indoors. My goal (as well as yours) is to see every nominated movie before the awards shows...come on, the movie needs your support. You've seen the ads on DVDS regarding the cost of pirating to the industry! Step up and be a supporter!
Speaking of Support, check out singer Marie Frank. I saw her last night at Plush in Tucson. I was impressed, and she was so sweet and beautiful. Not to mention her music. Turns out she wasn't even on tour, she was visiting friends in the Tucson Band Giant Sand, and she just happen to get a show. Check her out.
