[UPDATE] Blue Sphere Studios version 4 coming soon.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I’ve got a few things on my mind, so this will be another post of randoms, or tidbits, as Dave calls them.
I just spent 5 days in New Mexico visiting old friends and attending a wedding, and a few points stick out:
- Taking a 1 and a half year old on a 20+ hour travel time that mainly involves being on a train is NOT a good idea.
- The disconnect between an average salary and an average price for a home in the Bay Area is even more apparent than ever before. In New Mexico, we can afford a 4 bedroom 3 bath with ACRES of land for less than what we paid for our manufactured home. These would be million dollar homes here in Santa Cruz County!
- San Jose was hotter than Albuquerque, which was a pleasant surprise for us. We were expecting 100 degree desert heat, but it was actually great weather while we were there.
- Why aren’t there more Sonics here in the Bay Area!? $1.50 for a good size Strawberry Cream Slush is a dream come true.
Caleb’s growing up. Chesney wrote about it on her blog, but from the more sentimental, mushy parent, I can’t but have mixed feelings. I’m the proudest dad ever, but there’s a part of me that is sad that I’ll never see the cute, baby Caleb again. …oh well, I guess it must be time to have another kid…
Switchfoot’s new album is out! It’s awesome. What’s with the matching haircuts?
Hurricane Katrina has meant some long hours for non-profits. With CityTeam sending teams to help with various aspects of the relief effort, it’s been a mad scramble for marketing to support those teams from raising the funds online to producing the signs and badges needed. I only saw Caleb 1 hour every day I worked last week, and this week’s not much better…
I’ve been meaning to redesign Blue Sphere Studios, but everytime I start working on it, something else pulls me away, and by the time I come back to it, I don’t like the design anymore and want to start over. This has happened 3 times now over the last year, and I’m looking at my 4th design and I feel like I want to start over. I now am coming to realize that this will never get done unless I get fired from CityTeam.
