Back from the unintended blogging hiatus…

Well, hello! For those of you who have been wondering what the heck happened to me, since it’s been so long since my last post, don’t you worry! I’m still here, I’ve just gotten really boring since moving to San Francisco. I guess that happens when you don’t have exciting things like Presidential sightings, and epic blizzards to report about.

Actually, I’ve been spending most of my time over here. This is my second blog. Yes, I have two, because clearly one just wasn’t enough. I decided to take on a challenge back in April. To read 52 books in 52 weeks, and I’ve been blogging my reviews of each book and my progress on the challenge over there. Feel free to go over there and check it out, comment if you want (and disagree with my opinions if you really want to), and grab a few reading ideas if you’ve been feeling a bit out of touch with your bookshelves lately. It’s ok, go on. I’ll wait……
Ok, you’re back now? Great. On with the show. Since my last entry a few notable, and a lot more not so notable things have occurred.

First up, I turned thirty. Yep, it’s true, the big three-OH. This is what turning thirty looks like, or at least what it looked like for me as I was in PORTLAND(!!!!!) with some of my bestest friends in the world who were also celebrating leaving their twenties:
And, this is how we celebrated:
It was lots of fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Second in the notable category is that I got a job. I finally gave in to the realization that even though I say that I don’t like sales, the pressure of it, or the high production expectations involved with it, I’m actually really good at it. So, I am now officially a sales person. And, even though I know absolutely nothing about commercial real estate, I am working for the largest commercial real estate website on the internet. So, if any of you are ever looking to open a business, or buy an apartment complex, or run a hotel…let me know, I can try to help you navigate the 750,000 listings we have on the site. And even though I might not really understand what a CAP rate is, or what’s involved in a 1031 exchange, at least I can pretend well enough to convince you to buy a membership to our site!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Now on to the more exciting, but far less noteworthy category of events.

What’s the biggest thing to have happened in San Francisco since, well, forever? That would be the San Francisco Giants winning the world series. Prior to moving here, I couldn’t have told you who Tim Lincecum was, what “fear the beard” meant, or why in the world I should even care about baseball. That has all changed now folks, I officially have Giants fever. Helped by the fact that my office is directly next door to AT&T park, aka Giants Stadium. Oh My God, I have never seen such a display of team spirit in such a large scale. And oh how it was worth it to watch a team of misfits, the underdogs, come out and railroad their way to the championship. I don’t think this city is ever going to stop talking about it.

And keeping with the sports theme here, lets talk about them DUCKS. Ahem, in case you’ve been living under a rock, or you just refuse to acknowledge that this Pac 10 team really is this good, please refer to the BCS poll which finally caught up to all the other polls and ranked my team #1 for the first time in the school’s history. It appears that it is proving to be practically impossible for them to score less then 50 points in a game. Now, just to put this in perspective, I was super proud of the Ducks back when I was a student at U of O. I thought it was pretty damned cool that the we didn’t loose a home game the entire time that I was there. But this is something else entirely. This is an offense the likes of which we’ve never seen come out of Eugene. They’re unstoppable, and they may just run themselves to a national championship. Oh, please, lets hope so.

And just to prove how extra boring we’ve been, and also that some things never ever change, here is a pic of how Oliver has spent the last three months:

I leave you now with this absolutely hilariously stupid short film that my brother found on YouTube, and the promise not to take another three months to write another post ๐Ÿ™‚
