At A Loss

Today started very early for me and Andy.

3:30AM early.

College orientation day in Dubuque, Iowa. Home of Loras College - The Duhawks!

While we were there, Andy registered for his classes, got his laptop (pretty cool, eh?) and met some of his fellow freshmen. Myself, I sat through bad jokes told by professors that feel way more comfortable in front of 18 - 22 year olds, than the 40-50 year olds that they were talking to.

Goes to show, that just because you have all your fancy degrees, doesn't mean that you can necessarily relate to real people that are not students. I know this sounds like I'm being cynical again (surprise!), but seriously, I have a lot of life behind me and I can see right through you all.

Andy bought the pitch though, so I guess he's gonna be a Duhawk now, which means that we are a family of Duhawks!! I wonder if this baby ends up going to Loras, as well as his older brothers and sisters, will we get a group discount?

No, the baby hasn't decided to vacate his current locale.

Yes, I am tired and a bit cranky.

Happy 700th post to me!

I am also bummed out by the fact that two icons from my youth passed today. So, Rest In Peace Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson.

Good night and see you at 701!
