I'll be on your side forever more. That's what friends are for.

Not many people have seen this picture, and it's been a long time for some since they last saw it, but it's obvious why I feel obligated to post it on the interweb for all to see. Best Family Picture Ever!! Special thanks to Kelli Salter (then Harris) for establishing the perfect fraternal mood and familial poses. This was taken late 2001, my mission in life now is to find some way to verbally express the joy I feel when looking at this picture, until then Dionne Warwick's words will be an adequate substitute.

Saddest Story Ever

So to reward myself for the first round of boards I bought Guitar Hero II and all the other Guitar Heroes. I first played my cousin Abe's at Christmas a few years back and got hooked, ever since then whenever I was at Wal-Mart or Best Buy I would go and play the demo. Well with Sheri gone and boards done I had nothing to do but dedicate 16 hours a day to playing, so because of this and my wannabe a rockstar dreams motivating me, I got to be pretty good. Good enough that I decided to, with my wife, demonstrate my talent at a Stake talent night. So in the midst of "Sweet Child of Mine" as I was getting to wail mode, I pulled too hard on my wired controller and my PS2 took a 4 ft nose dive on the the gym "cultural hall's" wood floor. Sad thing was I didn't even get to perform Slash's solo, even sadder is that my ps2 would be ruined forever. I know it sounds stupid but I felt like a little piece of my heart was stolen from me that night. Food lost its taste and the sun did not shine. I seriously moped for like 3 weeks, it happened 5 days after I got GH3 and a second guitar. I'm totally over it now though. But sometimes, during the tranquil moments of the night as I drift between dreams and reality I feel the weight of my plastic Gibson SG draped over my shoulders, my top hap tipped low, my long curly bangs veiling my eyes and the crowd chanting my name with lighters ablaze.

Here's an idea for a TV show...America's Next Calvin Klein Eternity Perfume Ad that would appear in a 1987 issue of Rolling Stone. This has got to be a runner-up, at least.

Sheri and a 1991 Camaro RS. Yes, that's a Def Leppard Hysteria Shirt

This is Risa's pinewood derby car. It actually is a truck glued to a chunk of pine w/ wheels. There's a little statue of Dora glued to the back of the truck. Risa was so proud, but the thing stunk of last-minute.
