So last night just an hour before I got off work I got a notification on my Facebook page of a "live art show" in downtown of my home town going from 5-8 pm. 5:00 pm was when I got off work, so I wasn't able to venture out till about 5:45 after I had gotten home and taken a shower. Luckily I had one of my best friends to go with me, Clemente, and like me he was rather excited. Because both off us are so busy that to be able to have the chance to go to an actual event of some kind just overjoyed us, it helped that it was an art show since we're both professional Graphic Designer's and children of the art world. To add even more, it was an event being held by a good friend of mine I went to design school with. His name is Nathan Guidry, and he is a stellar designer, painter and all around artist, he's also a great guy to be around. But last night was not one of his best moments, at least in my eyes. He created the event just an hour before his display went live, and the only description added was "look for the blue jump suit and the tv." I read this as markers for what would be an actual art show, because he loves putting these things on. Of course it could just be my mistake for getting excited for an art show.
Midnight snacks = midnight blog posts. I'm super excited for tomorrow and I can't sleep. So I'll blog! I'm sittin' here with my bowl of Fried Dumplings and soy sauce getting hit in the head with Speedo's giant fluffy tail. gah! I really need to be in bed, its almost 2am! D: But still...I'm just so excited!
Just a short video of gettin' ready!
So, I'm really excited. I've planned a trip for us to go on tomorrow. He doesn't know where we're going but I've been wanting to go and been planning this trip for about 3 weeks. I'm super excited for it. I'll take my camera and hopefully will remember to actually take videos and pictures! ^^ The big question is I told him to get to Stillwater by 8 to 8:30 so we'll see if that lazy boy can actually get up in time. I'm super excited and I hope he is too.
Today was Independence Day! Minus the alien invasion (dag nab bit). And this is Derrick speaking, thank y'all very much. Today was a day for celebrating America's favorite part of history: the invention of fireworks (and Captain America punching Hitler in the face). I got with my family today, as I was unable to take a trip down to see the fireworks show with Megan in her home town, it was unfortunate but I had fun nonetheless. And we kept in contact the whole time. So my family and I were out shooting fireworks when the funniest thing happened: Cop came up to us, told us there were fires going on in other parts of the town, so we had to stop. Apparently they were stopping everyone. So no more aerials (but the ones closest to the ground were a-okay). The cop saw our hose we had hooked up so he appreciated that we had water at the ready if we started one. We were being careful to keep one from happening. Just after he left though, our box caught fire as we were putting away used fireworks. It was so ironic. We did not go for the hose to put it out though, instead we scrambled to use water bottles. So here's to family, fun and making memories! And tomorrow, I get to see my love! :D
