Trying again.

Going to try to start posting about a variety of things here. First up:

Me and Brittany's little boy, Levon, is nearly 8 months old! He can pull himself up to his feet with a support and say 'hi' among other things. We are so proud of him and look forward to many more milestones ahead.

My new goal for this blog is to have a sort of indexed dumping ground fort brain. I tend to have a lot of ideas throughout the day and typically most of them get shelved or slip through the cracks. Hopefully having a place to let those ideas flesh out and develop (or wither and die) will aid in productivity. Also I need a place to post pics of and brag infinitely about my super awesome genius son, Levon.

Topics (other than my wife and son) that may be covered include technology news and "how-to" articles, music opinion, my own creative projects, and most anything else that may pop into my head.

Up next, who knows, probably a technology article.

Stop Barking you Furry Jackass

So I can't go into our bedroom right now or Happy will start barking her little head off at the CMP guy outside switching our meters over. I guess they are switching them out to the new digital kind or something.

I drank exactly one pint of whiskey last night and found myself on the couch this morning. Generally, waking up on the couch means that i got kicked out of the bedroom for some reason. This time i think i may have just not made it to bed and my wifey left me there. As always though, I could be wrong. We'll see when Brit wakes up and tells me the whole story.

Anyway, i felt absolutely fine after finishing my beverages last night and then all of a sudden my memory of the evening drops out completely. I guess it WAS my intention to catch a nice buzz, but I didn't think a blackout would ensue.

In any case, now I'm just waiting for Brit to wake up and fill me in on what kind of an ass I made of myself.

Mission Improbable

First blog posts are a pain.

At best they offer immediate insight and understanding of one subject's experience.

At their worst (and most often), they come off as poorly worded, excruciatingly vague mission statements like the ones posted on bronze plaques in your high school guidance counselor's office.

So I'll get on with it.

I'm Patrick.

I have been married to my best friend for just over a year who just so happened to prod me into blogging again. Her name is Brittany and just this week she delivered a beautiful baby boy named Levon into our lives. So we are bushwacking through the wilderness of first time parenthood.

I am in the first week of my 3 week paternity leave from work. Me and Brit have been taking it easy with the new little guy in tow. Brit has been awake most nights feeding and changing Levon every so often. We have been homebodies, playing with the animals and sitting out on our porch. I have had the pleasure of getting to do most of the cooking lately which is a nice change.

We also have 2 dogs, Gaucho and Happy, plus 2 cats Aja and Ruby.

So back to that lame mission statement...

I will most likely be blogging about our day to day lives with our baby as well as other topics of interest to me. Including but not limited to: music production, obscure electronica and rock, computer science, technology, gadgetry, new fangled mechanations, cooking, and possibly Ronald Reagan and the band Yes.
So there was the terrible mission statement, far worse than even I had expected honestly. But you can;t uncrap a turd, you just have to flush or polish it.
