My hometown

I grew up in Cleveland. I always liked it there. I never loved it, but I liked it. I’ve always thought that it has received a pretty bad rap, even as it was coming back to life throughout the ’90s. I am, as hard as it has been for me my entire life, a fan of all Cleveland sports teams. I’ve suffered through heartbreaking seasons, disappointing seasons, and downright abysmal seasons (many of those), but I still count myself among the faithful. I can’t speak for Kristen totally, but I think it’s fair to say that she too is a Cleveland fan… at least as much as a girl from Cortland can be.

With all of this said, I mean no malice by posting these. They are just too funny not to share. The first one is a couple weeks old, and I’ve watched it at least 15 times. I’ve laughed out loud, conservatively, 50% of the time (that’s 7.5 times for those math whizzes out there). The second video was just posted yesterday, and I think is better than the first. Please note that video 1 is NSFW due to vulgarities, but the second video is ok.


Really bad at blogging

So, if you haven’t figured it out by now, we’re really bad at blogging. Mostly, I’m the one that’s really bad at blogging, but since neither of us have posted an update yet this year, I’m not going to take all the blame here.

It’s not like I haven’t wanted to post an update. It’s not even that I haven’t had anything to write about. I’ve had all kinds of ideas I’ve jotted down for the past three months on various sheets of paper I’ve since misplaced or thrown away. (And, yes, it’s been three months since I’ve updated this thing.)  

The problem is that the longer I go without writing, the more pressure I put on myself to say something that’s well written, thoughtful and a REAL update about what’s going on in our lives (and not something like what the Japanese word for watermelon is). I feel bad just posting stuff like this when we never told you about big things like our drive cross-country. And, I’m pretty much writing or editing all day, every day – so the last thing I want to do is write and edit when I get home.  

But, then again, maybe I haven’t updated the blog because I’m pretty lazy after I get home from work, and I tend to procrastinate, which explains why I still haven’t ordered our wedding albums.

In any case, those are my excuses for being out of touch, for what they’re worth.

More updates to come – but probably not for another three months.
