Wedding Pictures

I realized that I hadn't put any pictures online yet, so here you go.

Our first dance together was Iron & Wine's version of "Such Great Heights". Its a beautiful song with great lyrics.
I am thinking it's a sign
That the freckles in our eyes
Are mirror images and
When we kiss they're perfectly aligned
And I have to speculate
That God himself did make us into
Corresponding shapes like puzzles pieces
From the clay

This is where we met. He does the lights and I do the sound / projector for church.

I loved our get away car. Too bad I didn't get to drive it.

The Day the Music Died

♫♪drove my Saturn by the levy, but the levy was dry♫♪

So about 3 weeks ago, I was in my car driving home from work. I was singing along with the top pop station (guilty pleasure) when all of the sudden the radio went quiet. At first I thought, no big deal, someone tripped on a cord at the station. I should switch to one that plays more quality music anyways. I switch. Nothing. I look around to make sure Jericho hasn't really happened, but things look okay. No mushroom clouds. So I put in a CD, and don't make a big deal out of it. Levi says maybe my antenna came loose. This sounds reasonable. Until we get around to fixing that I'll just listen my CDs.

Well Monday morning, I get into my car, all ready to rock out to some Deathcab for Cutie (well as much as you can rock out to DCfC) and all I hear is silence. Nothing. I take the cd out and put in a different one. Yes, I thought maybe the album that worked perfectly yesterday suddenly developed a problem and was no longer functional. I put in someAndrew Peterson, still nothing but that dumb error message.

So now I am totally car musicless. I have an MP3 player though, so I figure if I'm really desperate I can just use that and be all redneck. Well, I forgot to charge it, for two days. Then today I go to see Levi at lunch and its all charged up and ready to go. I was excited! So excited that I left my headphones on my desk.

I'll just have to sing to entertain myself. Other drivers watch out!

Shiver me timbers its that day again. Its time to find that eye patch and dust off that peg leg. Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Meebo celebrates this day by translatin' all your IM conversations into Buccaneer Talk. so if you want t' chat with me... expect t' hear o' Davy Jones' Locker.

On a side note, I met a Pirate-Blacksmith on Saturday. His shop was called t' Black Pearl. I was such a good apprentice that I got promoted from fire-stoker t' striker all in one day. Blacksmithin' runs in me blood. me great grandfather was a blacksmith as was his father(me great great). me great great grandpa tried t' invent a perpetual motion machine, unfortunately he never succeeded. He did however make a tools that be used on fire hydrants. So if you house doesn't burn down its thanks t' him. :)

One Month and Counting

Its our One Month Anniversary!! Its been a good first month of marriage (with the exception of being sick). Home is feeling more like home than just a place where I am staying. I've gotten good at cooking with only 3 pots. (The store was out of the good ones we want to get.) Levi got the garage all in order and the basement. Now all we need to do is decorate. Anyone have any good connections at TLC or Home and Garden Network?

On a different subject. We had a fire drill at work today. It was good weather, so I didn't mind the break. We went back inside and I started working again. About an hour after our fire drill the company sends out an e-mail saying FYI: Emergency Evacuation Drills Scheduled in September for Corporate Buildings. It also included the escape plans for each wing on each floor. Useful? Maybe two hours go. Now? Not so much.

Maybe we can have a redo tomorrow, I hear the weather is supposed to be great.

The New Resume

I stole this from Josh's blog.

The Josh Sorokach Employment Test
1. Describe what has been your favorite job up to this point in your life.
Waitressing at Bob Evans, fun people (most of the time) and the mean / dumb ones give me good material for stories.
2. Describe your ideal fantasy job. I would love to be creative and come up with new ideas, maybe a PR company.
3. Briefly describe a key point on your resume. I have worked at the same place since I was 16. Thats dedication.
4. If you dad stole some bread from your boss because he was starving, would you take a vacation to Hawaii or send your dad a nice silver pen set to sort of say, “Hey I have so much money I drop over one hundred Washington’s on a pen." Neither. What kind of question is that?
6. Please describe your greatest strength and then juxtapose it with your greatest weakness. My greatest strength is that I can make anything sound nice, that means I find the positive side of someone losing a leg.
7. What song would you sing if the office went out for karaoke? I would sing the theme song from "The Office" Da da dadada dum...
8. Remember that scene in Rain Man when Dustin Hoffman counts all of those toothpicks? That was nuts. Anyway do you remember it? Nope, never saw it.
9. Rate the importance of personal fiscal success in relation to the overall financial success of this company. Happy employees do better work (see Google)
10. What are your top three choices for the office to watch on “Movie Monday’s?”
Oceans 11, Catch me if you Can, Grease
11. Honestly are you a good worker. Be honest, hence why I said honestly. Sure, I can accomplish in four hours what takes most people 8.
12. In regards to employment what is the biggest problem facing young people today in this changing social and economic climate. No one wants to give us a job because we don't have enough "experience".
13. If you saw Rick from marketing drop a twenty would you give it back to him? Yeah
14. Rate your skill level in intramural sports. On a scale of 1-10, i would get a 1 or 2.
15. Why should we hire you? I would be a very loyal, hard working employee. Plus, I'd bring in "good coffee."

Personality Test:
1. Favorite TV Show, movie, and non alcoholic beverage. Jericho / The Office, Catch me if you Can, Milk
2. Last concert you attended? Andrew Peterson
3. What did you do last Friday night? I went to the Andrew Peterson Concert.
4. Would you take 300 hundred dollars, St. James Place, a get out of jail free card, and one free ride of your choosing for Park Place? Depends who had boardwalk.
5. Who would win in a fight: A lazy yet slightly angry invisible Lion or an elephant with the sniffles that has a propensity for danger? The lion. Elephants don't have claws.

And finally…if someone wrote a book about you and the publisher absolutely needed it finished today, what would the title be? The Adventures of Tanya
