Went to Ram with 8 of my co-workers tonight. Looks like the Chicago team is shaping up pretty nicely. One of these days I'll end up in Sydney, I just know it.

Still not nervous, though. When am I supposed to get nervous?

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it; that does not make sense!

I mean, ya'll can count, why am I counting down for ya? August 18th! It's coming fast. The weather forecast changes by the minute ... yesterday the forecast said it was going to be 97 and sunny. This morning it said 74 and sunny. Now it says 65 and rainy. From what I gather, Italians believe rain on a wedding day is good luck, and Julie and I aren't terribly superstitious so it doesn't matter to us either way. At this rate, though, the forecast will say 20 degrees and snow ... which is still alright because we're not exactly wearing warm-weather clothes that day :)

This countdown thing is getting a bit silly, eh? :)

My aunt and cousin are flying in from Sweden on Wednesday. I'll stop by there to say hello ... maybe I'll bring Julie, I'll see if she wants to come when she calls tonight.

In other news, I borrowed a window A/C unit from my father. That'll make sleeping in the master bedroom much more bearable, since it's ridiculously hot upstairs. I'll have to watch the temperature situation carefully during the winter to see if it's an insulation issue, or just the fact that heat rises.

Still not nervous ... let's see if that changes :)

My silly countdown series continues ...

... so I went out for a bike ride at Bullfrog Lake with a couple of co-workers. It was a fun ride, though the fact that I'm out of shape shows. I'm going to have to whip myself into shape, and return to Bullfrog Lake for another ride, because it's actually fun.

So, 7 days remaining. Julie's significantly more nervous than I am, which is odd because apparently I'm supposed to be the nervous one. We'll see how I get later on this week, but to be honest I don't think I'll get nervous until I get on the plane for St. Lucia, seeing how neither Julie nor I have ever been on a plane without at least one of our parents.

Anyway ... back to making dinner. Interesting, that I have only lived alone for about a month and a half, and in a week I'll go back to living with someone else :)

Yep, just over a week. First guest arrives tomorrow. I'm meeting up with a couple of co-workers to go biking tomorrow, and I honestly hope this sort of thing (with or without co-workers) becomes more common, as I need to get off my ass :)

Still not nervous, though ... told 28 customers today that I'm going to be out from the 17th until September 4th. Good times.
