That's What I Think About That

Monday, May 31, 2004

When it rains it pours, huh? I've been in the factory since I got back from California just freaking out! I had such a good time out there. I have to thank Tim, Marci, Robbie, Marcella, Colin, Damon, Jill, Sarkis, Steve, and all of my peeps for showing me such a good time. I'm sitting here trying to forget how BAD I want to move out there!! Anyway, I came home to a mountain of bills, some SWEET unexpected ones, just life crap. Then my soon to be wife (2 weeks!!) leaves me right away for her Bachellorette party. I miss her so bad. So I'm broke, lonely, and missing Cal, and come into work and my sander is taxed, done!! When it rains it pours. The bright side is that since I've survived all this LIFE with a grain of salt, I know that the good is coming. I know that half of you reading this are going to print up an order form when you're done, just in time for hurricane season. Then the wedding is going to go absolutely perfect, and we'll have an early hurricane season. Oh man, that made me feel so much better, I'll definitely be buying a scratch off with my tall boy on the way home.
I love you guys.

Well, it's the end of my Cal trip. I'm waiting on Tim to get off and go get some Sushi and Sake bombs with the boys and hit the plane. This has been the best trip ever. I wanted to go to Mex and get rude, but instead we surfed three times a day and passed out early all week, I SWEAR. I've just been so amped to see my friends out here and get some good waves. It's classic when you're at a bar with like 8 people who have St. Aug roots and the bartender at this bar in San Diego is from Palatka! NICE. I have to thank Tim and Marci for letting me crumb their apartment out for the last week. OK, bachelor party is over, back to work.

AAAWWWW MAN!!! I Just woke up, or should i say came to. I'm in San Diego right now for my week long "bachelor party". I thought last night was gonna be all chill so we can wake up early and surf but NO. You knnow how WE DO IT. Right now my breath is like sushi and a@$ and I feel like 50 cent beat me in the Head with a baseball bat. Kids, I don't condone this behavior, not cuz it's bad and all but mostly cuz I'm missing waves right now. Anyway, I woke up with all my clothes on, sweating, in my jeans at like 11 o'clock wit my Docs on and spooning Tim's dog. Didn't even make it to the bed. I'll report back later. Pray for me.

How good is the new music right now? I went like 5 years without buying a new cd and all of a sudden I'm spending 100 bucks on music every month. Go get the Von Bondies!!!!!!!! I grew up on the old garage punk: Dead Kennedy's, Screeching Weasel, Dead Milkmen....and this new stuff is sooo goood! I know it's not "new", just new to me. But I'm so stoked on the White Stripes, Von Bondies, Vines..Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely bumping my Kanye West, and I'll be in line on the 25th for the new Beastie Boys but I can't get over this garage, back to basics Detroit ROCK. It's soooo goooood. Music is so important when I'm shaping. My sander is in today, he has good cd's like Modest Mouse and all hopefully at least one of them will work in my piece of crap cd player. Anyway, that's what I think about that.

I love my Mom!! My parents are seriously the best. When I was like 15 and all my delinquent friends were hanging around the house, they used to say: "dude, your family is like leave it to beaver." My Dad is seriously the best but literally, none of this would be here without Mom. When I started building boards my Mom was there from day one. I'll never forget my Mom cutting out my lams, she could sew so her laminate cut outs were perfect. She even used to help me measure out the epoxy. And I can remember hot coat fumes leaking into the house and pot roasts that tasted suspiciously like resin. Even deeper, Mom is who made me so goal oriented and made sure that college remained just BARELY more important than building boards for 4, I mean 5 years. Still, I never make a business decision without usually calling my most trusted consultant, Mom. She made miracles happen all of my life. And in my faith. My Dad is a Presbyterian minister, as with many others, the seed was definitely planted at home. I listen to my Dad at Church, no one delivers like my Dad, but my Mom is sssooo spiritual. I love it. Whenever I need some prayer, Mom is there. I just wanted to say thanks, Mom. I love you. Have a happy Mother's Day, chill on the Hammock, enjoy the birds, I'll call soon.
