Hello void.

I suppose this is like a message in a bottle thrown into the cold waters of the internet from the lifeless shores of the isle of LJ. I'm not sure if anyone will ever read it.

A lot has changed in my life since I was last active on this thing.

I got married. What was once so very unthinkable to me a short time before became a reality in October of 2008. Wedded bliss has been pretty blissful. It's nice to have some waiting for me to come home at night. Even at the worst, our fights devolve into hysterical laughing.

Sit And Spin closed. It's been almost a year and I still don't know how I feel about this. For nearly a decade of my life, like it or not, it was a large part of my personal identity. Even as I have to deal with the redefinition of myself, I also have to deal with what feels like a death to me. I'm near the end of the grief process and I'm pretty used to once again being rather unremarkable.

Well... except to this guy :

My wife and I had our first child on April 8th of 2009. His name is Foster and I know I might be a little biased, but I think he's the cutest kid in the history of the world. After 9 months you think you have your mind wrapped pretty well around the idea of being a father. Then when they place your child in your arms you realize you hadn't even come close to doing so. Every day he is an adventure.

And that's what I've been up to.
