2011 January 29

YOU (Yes, you): Burns and Becky, it was great to see you in Cleveland last night, and I’m especially psyched to hear that you’ll be warrioring it up with us in June in the Appalachian Warrior Dash. Can’t wait to see you in C-town again! Jeannie and Timmy G. (who I doubt reads this), you should sign up if you didn’t already because I’m expecting to see you there. Great to see you last night, Pasta and Allison. Have you heard of this place called Fat Heads? We should check it out. Congratulations to Erin, you work way too hard, and you deserve all of the fun things coming your way. Standard-issue hooray!  Thanks to Pete for sharing “The Tallest Man on Earth,” which might be my new favorite band (see video above). Sara good luck on keeping Jack indoors for a few more weeks, and congrats to Jen and Mark on your new exotic pets and on still referencing Charlie, out of respect, of course. Melissa, I’m so glad to hear that you’re returning to beautiful Ohio next month! Another win for the Buckeye State!

SCHNEIDERS: Congratulations to Kyle on conning someone into letting you go to China AGAIN for free. And, parents, I’m excited to try out the Brew Kettle with you tomorrow night.

TONIGHT: Ryan and I are headed to Night town for some music, drinks, and dinner. It is the perfect cold-weather place.

BELIEVELAND II: I’m not a big sports person (really?), but I am a big fan of sitting in the front row of pretty much any event if it’s only going to cost $12, which is how much it cost Ryan and I to sit right behind the basket at the Cav’s game last night. We got our tickets on Flashseats. And, of course, despite the fact that we were down by 20, the place was mostly full, the crowd was completely into the game, and the players rallied and got within six (or four, don’t trust my stats). For some reason, we love being the underdog. There’s always the potential for winning, but if we don’t, we’re still trying hard. Good enough!

FILM FESTIVAL: The Cleveland International Film festival is coming up in March, and since I’ve randomly run into and met two people who work on it in the last two days (in two separate locations) AND my tap class was used to film the “tap” sounds that will be in a tap water promo video for the festival, I’m guessing this is a sign from the fates that I should go this year. Here are this year’s films.

    Hey — not sure Warrior Dash is gonna happen for me this summer. The only open slots now are 6:00pm and after and no one wants to run that late with me. Def next year though! Also I’m a fan of the tallest man in the world — he’s got a little Bob Dylan in him.

    *on earth…not in the world…I’m sure there’s a taller man somewhere in the universe

    I guess we’ll have to replace our Warrior Adventures with some “Ulysses” reading adventures! Tell Mark, we’re starting the one-book summer book club. Agreed on the Bob Dylan, and, in other fun (maybe)facts, I just read that “The Tallest Man on Earth” is only 5’7″. Not sure if that’s true or not.
