Jun 10, 2007 : Goodbye, Midland

This weekend our whole family was in Midland for Chloe's high school graduation open house. It was the last time I'll be in Midland in the foreseeable future, since my Mom is joining my Dad in Houston very soon. I'll miss Midland, but not terribly. I'll miss the friends I have who are still there. Not much else to say, but thought I'd write something rather than nothing, at least for posterity's sake.

May 07, 2007 : to be an old man

I've wanted to be an old man for a while. Perhaps it started with the "Michigan State Grandpa" tshirt that I bought (my friend Brian got one too) while visiting a friend at MSU several years ago. Or perhaps when Cherith starting saying to me: "You've got rice in your beard, old man!" The advantages of being an old man are great: you can be weird and looney, or just plain grouchy and people write it off: "he's just an old man". You also get to have a big gray beard. And years of "wisdom" to yell at little'uns by. Now today the internet was out at my apartment for a while so I went for a jog. I haven't done that in a while and now my legs are sore. And weak, especially when trying to stand up from sitting. So I feel like an old man since I have trouble even standing myself up. Also today, I got the results from my MRI on my elbow (I fell on it before winter and it hurts when pushed straight in certain ways) and it turns out nothing is wrong really. Everything is normal; I just have to live with it (which isn't too bad). I forget how it came up when I was talking about it at work, but Drew concluded it makes me like an old man.

Step by step I'm working towards my goal. Pretty soon I'll age past you all!

Feb 01, 2007 : turkey wad

Now that I've thoroughly disgusted some of you.... "turkey wad" is a phrase that my family and I actually use. I think the general meaning is the same as "dork". Has anyone else heard this phrase? Google only reveals a few myspace comments with this meaning. Parents, sisters, any idea where we got this from? My guess is from Mom's side of the family.

Nov 28, 2006 : Tai Chi

Nigh upon a year ago, one of my friends encouraged me to take Tai Chi classes. He was taking one and loved it.

I was looking through the winter Grand Rapids Park & Rec brochure and saw they were offering Tai Chi classes, and at a pretty low cost. So I think I'm going to enroll. There also was a fencing offering (equipment supplied) which was tempting.

Mmm.. chai tea
