Just finished – Just a Geek




Do not let the book title fool you. It's beyond being 'just a geek'. It's
a collection of his blog entries. Wil Wheaton is a
brilliant writer and FUNNY too. I literally could not put this book down.

Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That!



This is one of the gifts Chad gave me for my birthday {kisses}. And I LOVE IT! The opening sequence is so cool. One of the many hand-held cameras they gave to the fans to film, to my surprise - Jeff Tweedy from Wilco.
Yeah, awe-some.

Hey, Dimes!

Hola!

Long time, no see, or hear from the Cookster..... been kind of
busy.
I want to pass along the word of a local band, The Dimes. Jay,
Chad, & I saw them open for Linus Pauling Quartet at Rudyards a while back,
as Jay mentions here about the show. They've just released an EP on August
8th, says David A. Cobb, writer for Houston Calling website. I sure would
like to get my hands on that EP, but I can't figure out how to order it or
if it is even available to purchase. Their next show is at Walters on
Washington
opening for The French Kiss on Sept. 22nd.

Solcookie joins Alice in Wonderland – My 35th!

I had an intimate birthday party hosted by Chad & Rebecca Saturday night.
The theme was Alice in Wonderland.






Rebecca made this homemade spectacular cake (on her own) and it was sooooo delicious. Very detailed too. She did a wonderful job and I'm honored she baked it for me.

another annoying geico commerical!?!

But not this one...

Summer Vacation 2006 **overdue post**

We went to Denver to visit Amy and Corey who moved from Houston earlier this year. We had such an AWESOME time. During our stay we managed to go to Pearl Street in Boulder, camp at Rocky Mountain Park, play TX hold em at Colorado Casino Station in Black Hawk, and attend the WEEN/Flaming Lips show at Red Rocks. Whew!! Yeah, it was difficult to say good bye.


I'd like to send a big thanks to Amy and Corey for their gracious hospitality during our stay in Denver. Barkley too...WOOF!
