In honor of our first blog birthday, I'm posting a couple pictures that I like, this first one is a cheap joke, but a good one. Not much to it, but really funny.
Next, here is a picture of the scoring scheme for the fantasy basketball league I'm playing in with a bunch of friends, notice that technical fouls and ejections are worth a lot of negative points, I'm leading the league in those categories.




Here's a witty FedEx ad. (click the pic for a better view)


I really like this one with the penguins. I think everyone in college should talk a class on "cognitive dissonance". Basically that means you are able to see something from someone else's perspective. It is what economists do for a living. I've been really into economics lately and love reading the "Freakonomics" blog. ( I like leavitt more than dubner).


This picture is from an NPR story on the ever - growing size of our homes. I've been thinking how often we spend money just to be spending money and then I got all into these wacky sites like the "small house society" devoted to living resourcefully and reducing our impact on the environment.

And to finish off this post I'd like to tell everybody about how great my friend Adam is. It is my privilege to know him. He's always having a crazy adventure. Here he is with an over 100 year old lobster he caught off the coast of California. I want to live by him so I will always feel alive. Adam, you are the man. (PS - he is a really cool commercial airline pilot)


While I'm sharing my feelings, just wanna make a public shout-out to Melissa. You're the best! I love you so much and can't believe I always get to chillax with you. LOVE!

ps- i like it when you guys post... hint hint adam, jordan. (scott and mark you do a good job)

*edit - Adam, I just saw you "manning up the blog" and I'm really impressed.

*edit 2 - There are a bunch of men around here that need to blog as well, mike b. and todd w. are the only men around San Antonio man enough to blog. and they are doing a good job. I'd like to see posts from quintin, brian, dave, kip, tim, chris b. way up in washington,

Oh what an honor it is to post a comment first on such a great blog. Aaron, I love the pictures, and happy to know the techs and the ejections are rewarding you nicely. Loved the read, my only regret is there was no shout out to the Jazz. So I will do so now. Go Jazz! And a little flashback to the Hornedfrogs of '00.

I love that last picture. When I first saw it before reading the post I thought you had just found it somewhere online! That is so crazy! I work with Dr. Lind and he was just showing us those pictures! What a crazy thing they do!

YOU'RE FREAKING PREGNANT!!!!!! HOW COULD I NOT KNOW THIS????? AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Does this have anything to do with my monsters wrestling at your house? I'm so sorry I hope you'll forgive me. I know, I get it, you're happy right now. But don't come whining to me years later when you get them wet and they start multiplying like little gremlins and you suddenly can't figure out what happened to your sence of humor. Oh my gosh, I have no way to get a hold of you except this. I just got on blogspot this week and I found you through the Babcocks. Look at the underhanded sneaky lengths I have to go to. Hmmm, maybe this is why I didn't know. Why didn't somebody tell me. I tell you, you leave town for a lousy month or two and your completely forgotten! You're going to have to call me. I'm in Alaska 907-746-3695. Our new blog is landinclan.blogspot. I totally miss you. I can't believe you're a mommy now! Wowee. You should have told me sooner, I could have sent you cute little Euro clothes. I've got to go lie down or something, this is too much!
love you,
Kelly

A-dawg,

I will have to let C.B. know a shout out was given to him via your blog. I hope you got our invite and that you will visit regularly. Keep in mind it's mainly a photo blog with zero intersting posts like yours...I guess you could say mine is a bit girlie. I don't want to hear you complain though, afterall, you asked for the invite! Ha!
