new year!

I hope everyone has a great year year! I can't believe it is the end of a decade. WOW!

In the words of Dan Wilson...

What a year for a new year

We need it like we needed life I guess

Last one left us lying in a mess

What a year for a new year

What a night for a sunrise

And we thought the dark would never end

Reaching out to try to find a friend

What a night for a sunrise


What a day for new day

And our star shines like a miracle

And our world is almost beautiful again

What a day for a new day

New day

What a year for a new year

What a night for a sunrise

And we thought the dark would never end

Reaching out to try to find a friend

What a night for a sunrise


Soon we’ll be lying in our beds

And new dreams will fill our heads

And the old ones will be ended

Hope we’ll forget about this place

Let it go without a trace

Wipe the teardrops from our faces

Oh! What a year for a new year

good to know

Monday I went to the dermatologist. I mentioned that I need a good lotion for my face...he said that most of the doc use Aveeno. This is not the first time I have hear that people use this...I have asked a couple women with amazing skin what they use and they all have said Aveeno.

So I giving it a try and I will let you know how it goes.

is it just me?

So lately I have been having chipolte for lunch on mondays after my workout. I could tell that it just hasn't been the same but I couldn't put my finger on why it just didn't taste the same. Well the company fired a ton of mexican employees around the cities. Today they are going to protest at the downtown store today.

I hope they fix this problem or else I just quick and heathy place to eat in the cities.

Yesterday on the view they kept talking about how awesome the Prince concert was in NYC. Just a quick story. I have see Prince 3 times in my life. 2 times in Chicago and 1 time in minneapolis. Every time I have seen him it was been a different show. One of the times in Chicago all he did was just jam on the guitar no singing.

The time in Minneapolis was with Joe - I basically had to drag him kicking and screaming to the concert at the xcel center. At the end of the concert on the way home to quote him "that was a really good concert". This was from someone that didn't know any prince songs and really didn't like him.

I just think no matter where the concert is Prince is just a great entertainer and everyone should see him once.

This past summer my friend and I thought we might get tickets to the Vikings vs. Bears game. However it was a monday night game and they would have to take 2 day off of work. Well in some strange way I kind of would like to be at the game tonight at least for a quarter. I'm not looking forward to more snow though...

Friday I met a new friend and we went and took photos around the Basillica and Loring Park. It was a quick shoot considering I need my mittens off to take photos. Over the next few days I will share my photos.

Last night I had a quick dinner with one of my friends that I met from my support group. We discussed all the crazy dates we have had. At least she said my adventures were the funniest. We thought should we be dating guys way older than cause she took care of her husband for 10 years and didn't want to have to take care of anyone again. SO we decided back to our original plan way younger guys. They are not screwed up that much year and don't have kids. (they throw a kink in dating)

The other thing she said that made a ton of least now we are feeling something. Meaning that for so long we were in shock, empty, numb and now we are on a roller coaster of emotions going up and down.

Last night I went to my "date a nerd" night. I have been doing this since Aug. every other month. Basically it is like a speed dating thing. 3 guys and 3 girls sit at a table and play board games for a 30 - 45 mins then the guys rotate to a different table.
It is actually fun - the guys are really nerds and scared to death of girls so it is kind of like going out to a gay bar. You can just go out and have fun with out any worries.

Last night this new girl came and was surprised that me and a couple other guys have been going for months...why you ask to quote her she said "this must not work if you come back" Both of us reply we are here just to play games and have fun.

The strange thing is the first time I went in Aug, I won a prize and picked this skull. I didn't notice it say "LA County Corners Office" on the back of it. I figured it was Joe's way of saying "hi honey"

So it has been 3 weeks and 8 first dates and I'm done dating again for a while.
