Okay, fun over

I enjoyed blogging about things that only I cared about so I appreciate your patience. The last blog was a sucker punch waiting to happen and no one bit...and you should be glad you didn't because it was a setup that would only result in getting your nads kicked in.

For the past 10 years I've been getting my hair cut pretty regularly. As seen in the unibomber photo on the page I do have a moderate amount of facial hair. So far through this entire Spring I've avoided haircuts and have let my goatee just grow. Why? I have no idea...just feel like it.

I've lost 17 pounds this year. I've been eating more sensibly and the only fluids I consume are water and an occasional adult beverage (St. Peter's English Ale specifically) But the real trick to weight loss has been stomach viruses. I've had 3 this year. Excellent weight loss program that the liberal media won't tell you about.

Last Sunday I went and saw Paul Allen's (co-founder of Microsoft) personal airplane collection which is called the Flying Heritage Collection. The Seattle Aquarium can take a few cues from this exhibit as it does what it promises: Shows you airplanes.

Esther (your fellow blog reader) is now a homeowner and I'm pretty excited for her. Everyone help me think of a housewarming gift to send her.

Another reader asked me if I'm Anglican in an email. No, I'm not. My father and Grandmother were both Anglican and I have two half-sisters who are practicing Episcopalians. I did go to Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria, BC last Fall (Anglican Church of Canada) and had a wonderful time experiencing what I think is the most beautiful liturgy going (since I don't understand Latin) but it was my first time in an Anglican church since I was a kid...and that was for a funeral.

Lastly, I have a series of vacations lined up for this summer and I plan to continue the blog while on vacation though it will not be super active blogging. I'm also unsure of how or if I'll handle photographs. Maybe if I can get an efficient system by then.

Now feel free to comment your brains out.

Esther means Star in Persian. Send her a pound of Persian Star garlic to make her home smell tasty. Or a bouquet of Persian Star Iris, which smell less tasty, but also less pungent.

Then again...there's always the old standby, wine. Everyone loves a bottle of wine. Unless is sucks, or they're an alcoholic or baptist...then they just pretend like they don't love it.

I'm not going to give you any hints on housewarming gifts because I like to be surprised. However, I can't drink wine because I am sensitive to sulfites. I would be interested to see what you come up with simply based on what you know of me from my blog.

Congrats on losing weight.

I've enjoyed all your recent posts, by the way. I just can't think of much to say in response sometimes.
