Spendy lately

Current music: Ben Folds - Whatever and Ever, Amen

It seems like all I have been doing lately is shelling out cash and this trend isn't slowing. I had to put doors on a bedroom in my house (which used to be an office) because my sister moved in there this week. My laptop died on Wednesday morning so I have to get a new one. There is a light fixture which is screwed up in my dining room. I have tried to fix it, but I am now over my head and I have an electrician coming on Tuesday.

All fun stuff eh? The joys of owning a (really old) home.

At least I will end up with a new computer. I am getting a mid-grade MacBook and upgrading it to 2 GB of RAM.

a little processing

Current music: Sigur Ros - ()

Tonight after work I have just been working around the house. Getting ready for Stacia to move in was more work than I thought it would be. Shampooed the carpets and crap like that in her room. I think everything is ready except the doors. They will be put on tomorrow.

I also did a little editing of that photo from last night. Not because it is a great shot, but because I don't have a better one at the moment...

Current music: Songs Ohia: Axxess & Ace

This weekend was mostly spent looking after my house. I made some good progress. Cleaned the basement (mostly), cleaned the garage, installed some bamboo looking window film in the bathroom, and did some other general cleaning. Stacia moves in on Tuesday and the doors to her room should be installed the same day!

It has been a weekend of parties...
Friday: Karla's birthday
Saturday: Danielle's going away party, Inslee's birthday, Justin's birthday/housewarming
Today: just some sweet trivia at Sputnik.

I headed to Wash Park around sunset this evening to get some photos and play with my camera a bit. I need to do that more. This is the best shot I got, and I am not all that thrilled. I could probably lighten it up a little, but this was the base shot:

so much, just so much

Current music: Jeremy Enigk - The Missing Link

So... I am not sure where to start. Just so much stuff going on lately. Last weekend a bunch of DKBC kickballers and I went to Vail to play in the annual Evans Chaffee Kickball Classic. We really didn't know what to expect, but we thought we would kick some ass. So, we all started off by drinking a lot all night then trying to play the next day hungover (or still drunk). Turned out well (3rd place of 13), but we got our asses kicked in the last game, 22-1.

Here are some things thrown together...

Sputnik Photobooth

Moving right along... we got out DKBC trading cards!

So, other things besides kickball... Tammy and Margi moved to Brooklyn. This sucks for all people in Denver. I hope they come back and visit soon. Stacia is moving in on Tuesday. The doors for her room were meant to be installed today, but the vendor shipped the wrong size to me. Now it is going to be about 2 more weeks. Stacia will deal, but it sucks.

no champ here

Current music: Joanna Newsom - Ys

Us Drinkin' 40s ended up losing the championship game this past weekend to the mighty Shit Kickers. I would have to say they played an excellent game. We did too, but just couldn't manage to bring runs home. We had runners on 2nd and 3rd twice during the game, but were shutout 4-0.

Thank you DKBC for a great season and all the new friends.

Kiwi Week

Current music: My beautiful air conditioning

Ben and his brother Adam showed up at my house on Thursday. Since then we have just been rockin' it. Thursday night we hit up Benny's for some good mexican and margs then went to Sputnik for a few more drinks. They didn't tell me that they were sick. The next day with the hangover on top of being sick the two of them were useless. Did the mall thing so they could buy cheap American clothes.

BirthStock (which ended up at my house after the cops broke it up at Bosch's place because of noise)
was amazing. Pictures of my backyard being overtaken by BirthStockers:

Yesterday Ben and Adam slept in to try to fight their sickness then we headed up to Estes Park for a drive on Old Fall River Road and Trail Ridge Road. More pictures:

Current music: Jets to Brazil - Perfecting Loneliness

So I was digging out Vail photos today to show to people at work and I came across this jem... Hulsey boardsliding a rail in the backyard of my old condo:

This kinda makes me want to move back to Vail. However, I am heading up to Keystone this weekend for the Beer and Bluegrass festival after Brooke and Chad's pool party. Should be a good time.

Koura has been big chillin' lately

Current music: The Mars Volta - Frances the Mute

With all the heat lately, my little (or not so little) dog has been panting up a storm:

Current music: Songs: Ohia - The Magnolia Electric Company (limited edition demo)

Why is Songs: Ohia so incredible? Jason's voice haunts me. I relish in the haunting.
