Some people have been getting on me about my lack of posting lately.

What I have to say to you is this:

Back off!

I have other blog commitments (and you can read them at, plus book deals, etc. In other words, I am kind of a big deal. People know me.

I was in Payson last weekend, the weather up there is amazing. Starting to cool off, breezy, etc. If you have the time, I highly reccomend it. Even though I was put to work.

Coming up in my world although I am not sure when is a bachelor party for my buddy Josh, congrats to him. I am super excited about the party. Ready to hit the streets of Vegas, Tahoe, San Diego or whever it takes us.

I started reading Harry Potter - Amy's obsession - and it's actually pretty good. Better than the movies I have seen. She is a very talented writer. Like myself. And modest.

I woke up this morning and something strange happened. Amy was still sleeping and would continue sleeping for the next 3 hours (nothing new there). I went to Starbucks and read the newspaper (normal weekend routine). I checked my fantasy sports teams (a daily occurrence). And then I started reading Men's Health. There was an article about Gerrard Butler - the star of the bad ass movie 300 - in which he discusses quitting his job as a lawyer and deciding to become an actor. He had no acting experience, but that is what he wanted to do... so he did it.

It has motivated me to truly go after my dreams. In my case it is writing. Maybe for you it is photography, starting your own business or traveling. The point is - no matter what your dreams are, no matter what your passion is, you will not be truly happy until you work on achieving them. I have been discouraged and struggling lately with creativity - not anymore.

I know what I have to do. Go after my dreams. There are no excuses, there is only effort. So go get 'em and enjoy this day.

Weekends in Phx

There is something to be said for sitting around and enjoying your weekends. In Phoenix, you have no choice really. It is so FREAKING hot that it is literally all you can do. I have friends in San Francisco and DC... they are soaking up the rays, living it up in the 75 and breezy afternoons. Jealous. The good news is it gives me an excuse to sit around and watch football all Sunday. One more month... then October hits and this place starts to cool off! Thank god!

Plus, October means MLB playoffs, the Arizona Fall League and the NBA around the corner...

Speaking of the MLB playoffs, it seems more and more unlikely that the Arizona Diamondbacks will be a part of them...

Is anyone as excited about Halloween as me? I didn't think so. I've already got my decorations up. I even beat the grocery stores. Amy is trying to make me go as Harry Potter, but he is such a dork I am putting my foot down on this one....

Besides that, not a damn thing going on. I have not been feeling too creative lately, really slacking on the book writing... I think they call that writer's block.

Phoenix Cooks

Finally over! I can now relax and get back to business. I just got a massage today and released all that stress and tension from my neck and shoulders. You know the feeling.

The event went well... scored some free Hoegaarden (that's beer for those of you who did not know) and Stella Artois. Money. Took the Hoegaarden back to my condo where I was holding a Fantasy Football Draft party. My first pick? The man, the myth, the legend... Tom Brady. I would have paid an extra dollar if Giselle came with him. No such luck.

Finally got some of the pictures back from the photo shoot I mentioned earlier, some are good, some not so good. It's funny, the ones where I told the photographer (Amy) what to take - those suck! Then the ones where I just let her do her thing, well those are good. Strange how that works....

So I am getting back to writing, blogging and working on the website. More info to come.
