Neglect

I'm an asshole.  I guess that's not really news because I'm always an asshole.  It's just that today I feel like an asshole.  I haven't posted anything here in over a month and I feel bad about it.  Yes, that's why I feel like an asshole.  Not because I kicked some old lady or didn't hold the door for a dog or whatever.  I suppose that not feeling bad about the times when I was actually an asshole makes me more of an asshole, but I don't really care because I'm an asshole.
 
Anyway, I've been busy (that's no excuse - everyone is busy) and here are some things that have happened to me since my last post:
 
-I went home for Thanksgiving to visit my family.  I got to see almost all of my extended family, including my uncle who is an astronaut.
 
-I went to a wedding that same Thanksgiving weekend in Indiana (only about an hour from my hometown).  My girlfriend's brother got married.  The reception was at the same time of the ND-USC game.  I guess it was good because I didn't have to watch the Irish blow another big game, but it sucked that I simply had to survive on text messages from my friends Chris and Bob (thanks, guys!).
 
-At the rehearsal dinner for the wedding, we each got cookies shaped like the Purdue 'P' logo (both bride and groom went to Purdue).  When the groom asked me how the cookies tasted I said, "Tastes like losing."
 
-I bought an all-in-one printer/copier/fax for our home office.  Send me a fax, won't you?
 
-I watched the Colts lose twice.
 
-I saw The Pillowman at the Steppenwolf Theater.  It was fantastic.  Dark and violent and not for everyone, but I loved it and found it hilarious and twisted.
 
-I got my hair cut.

-I finally finished my first big project for work.  Hopefully, recognition will come in the form of a hefty Christmas bonus.

-I "bought" my first ever batch of temporary tattoos.

-I read a book about boxing written by one of my best high school friends.  I enjoyed it quite a bit.  It's called Facing Tyson: Fifteen Fighters, Fifteen Stories. Check it out.

-I put up a really chintzy Christmas tree in my new home.  It's fiber optic.  It was also free.  We'll have a new one next year.

-I pooped.  Multiple times.
