Oh, and for those interested, we still have shirts available. If you'd like to own one, just drop me an email.
There is one thing I regret about this last ARGUS show. In my haste to get the show lined up, I neglected to ask Newpy if he would be interested in playing. It's one of those things where I thought Newp had no interest in playing, so I didn't even bother him with it. Looking back on the situation, I realize I should've asked. Newp, if you read, I am sorry. Never did I mean to disrespect you. I've been under the impression the last couple of years that you were done with live performances. Regardless, I should've offered you the courtesy and I didn't. I'm sorry.
Speaking of Newp, for the second year in a row he's talked me into a fantasy football league. Last season, the Vegas Hookers finished in dead last. As an owner, I was considering folding the team, but when the moans of the women in the league started drowning out my rational thoughts, I decided to give it another season. Basically I never keep up with it. I should try more often, but I just don't have the desire. Big Red tried to talk me into joining another league as well. Um, no thanks. One is more than enough for me. All of the fellas in the league are good guys. We give each other a lot of shit, and I enjoy that aspect of it. I just don't get as serious as some of them do. I don't make many changes to my team. I don't look for the surprise free agents. Hell, last year I left Jevon Kearse on my starting team for two weeks without knowing he was injured. I suppose what I'm getting at with this is I kinda wish I hadn't signed up again. It's nothing against the people in the league, it's just not something that excites me. Now, instead of scoring my team b/c I enjoy it, I am waiting until the last minute to score my team because I dread it. Maybe I'll change my mind later. Who knows?
I have a phone interview with Vanderbilt later this afternoon. I'm excited. And nervous. Director of Event Operations is the job title. I totally know I can handle anything they need me to do. I just haven't had a phone interview in over a year ... and this would be a great step for me. It is also in a pretty damn cool place. If I don't get it, the world certainly will not end. I have a solid job here at NIU. However, the opportunity to get back to the southeast, and back into the SEC is something I'm very excited about. I'll keep you all posted.
OH, if there is anyone that has written me an email in the past few months and hasn't heard back from me, then you need to drop me another line. In some freak computer accident, I opened my email Friday and my inbox was totally empty. I had emails in there from May that I haven't returned yet. I suppose this is what I get for being such a horrible friend. So if you can find it in yourself to forgive me, drop a note and I promise I'll get back in touch with you.
