I know, it’s a bit silly because I don’t smoke, but I love the simplicity in design of zippo lighters. My dad gave me a zippo once and I recently found it. I didn’t want to lose it so I thought I would get another and zippo has a customization feature on their website.

My sister visited from Texas. It’s the first time she’s come up from to visit me in Oklahoma since I have come back in 2009. She finally brought my painting she made me years ago, 2006 I think? It was very popular in her studio so I know it was hard for her to part with. It’s a great painting.
Yesterday, I heard the orchestral piece Boléro by Ravel. While whistling it in my head later in the day, it evolved into Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl.
About 3:30am last night, I woke up and had to look online because I wanted to know if the Impressionist music period was the same time and influenced by the impressionist art period and tied together in anyway. Turns out, they were. Thanks Wikipedia.
I watched Squidbillies on TV to fall back asleep.
I know, right?
Back in 2005, my father passed away. It was a difficult time for me, more complicated so as my father and I had not been that close towards the end. I was living in Manhattan at the time and had to catch a last min flight back to Oklahoma to make arrangements for the funeral other things.
Last min road trip to Colorado with Tracy. We climbed the mountain in snow shoes!
Taking Nate to a see the OKC Thunder vs. LA Lakers game tonight. While taking my jacket off I asked the kid to hold my beer a second as he continued to text on like kids do. Looked so casual about it I thought it funny to get a pic of him looking like he’s enjoying his beer. 🙂
So this happened.
My sister had been wanting to get a tattoo for years. She decided that while I was visiting her for the weekend, we would get one together. Then it evolved into getting the same design. I was very hesitant but I told her a design I had been kicking around for years and she loved it.
Today was Family day at work, just before the official ceremony tomorrow of opening the building to the public. We got to tour around the building and I got to show Nate where I work and my office. We went up to look around the resturaunt at the top of the building as well, it’s called Vast.
It was a pretty great day.
I have asthma. Have had it all my life. Something I had to hide when I joined both branches of service.
A few years ago I had a bad bronchial infection and the Dr. put me on Advair disks and they worked great and I breathed a lot better. If I ordered these one disk at a time it was $78. If I ordered online, three at a time, it was $40 for all three. Bargain, right?
Last year I went off all Asthma meds when I started cycling. The idea was make my own adrenaline and replace the fake adrenaline and it worked. It wasn’t always easy to not use the meds but it worked and I was living without the meds for six months. That is, until I went to Seattle, stayed in a crappy hotel and got another chest infection and the Dr put me back on Advair. Except now, they cost $170 for three. As of this month, they are now over $200 for a three month supply.
Just canceled the next order due. It’s not the money, it’s the principle. I’ll find a way to live healthy without the meds if you are going to charge more and more for medicine that allows me to simply fucking breathe.
