Payson, AZ

ETD: 30 mins.

"Headin up the hill" as they say. OK, nobody says that, but it sounds kind of Payson like. This weekend is going to be all about me sitting on my ass doing a whole lot of nothing besides reading and watching movies. Maybe a hike or two. Sound like fun? Yeah, it's good work if you can get it.

No I am not talking about the fat kid in school who make noises when he breathes. Im referring to the band. Who by the way put on a kick ass show at the AZ State Fair last Saturday night. They are very funny and sound great live, too. I give it my highest recommendation which is: What else do you have to do?

I must say that was the best part of the day/night. Earlier in the day, I lost my parents dog, Luigi. He is an Italian Greyhound, about 10 lbs and maybe a foot and a half tall. You can imagine it was difficult to find him. It took about two hours. Not my idea of a good time.

Between that and my girlfriend's car getting towed (lots and lots of walking), I got my cardio in for the week. Note to self: car getting towed not good. Avoid when possible.

It was not her fault. The fair/Phoenix PD put up some temporary no parking signs which we missed as they were hidden and tiny. Just to bring this blog full circle, you best believe I was "weezing" during my eight plus miles of walking.

What's New?

The last week or so has been a blur. Between my colleague at work quitting (me having to pick up the slack) and personal items like having to deal with the DMV and health insurance (pain in the ass!), I've felt like a chicken with my head cut off.

Today is NFL football and my nephew's birthday. I got him a bunch of dinosaur stuff and transformers - he is obsessed with both.

I am also working on some new marketing items all of which I am quite excited about. I mentioned earlier the Arizona Fall League media pass and have been blogging about that on XTRA. I started a new blog... details coming very soon on that - animal lovers will enjoy. I am also writing an article on bachelor parties for a magazine website. My first paid gig!

As you can see I have been busy. Do not hesitate to leave me some comments. I will respond. It is my easiest way to stay in contact with each of you.

Media Credentials

Sometimes it pays to be in showbiz. I scored myself a media pass to the Arizona Fall League. I will be the exclusive writer for XTRA and hopefully get an interview or two for my book. I know Ryne Sandberg is managing one of the teams so my mission is to get an interview from him. If you have a question you'd like me to ask drop me a comment.

This weekend I am checking out First Friday. I know I know. I've been in Phoenix for how long and never been? Then Saturday night I am going to a huge kegger. Not really. I am however going to a really freaking nice house up in Cave Creek and definitely looking forward to it.

I found out who the mysterious commenter was and is. Of course it was not too tough. After I installed google analytics and saw that most of my pageviews were from San Francisco it was pretty obvious. No not Barry Bonds.

No word yet on the bachelor party. I don't know what everyone is waiting for. Let's get this show on the road.
