Quit Your Job, today.

Ok. So we pretty much quit our jobs 2 years ago – if you didn’t know. Mainly because we were sick of working for other people and not doing what we loved. We felt like we were wasting our lives away. We didn’t want to be 50 and hating our lives and work. Oh we also wanted to be around for our child(ren) when they came. And they did!

Coincidentally a lot of our close friends have been going through the same thought process. Great minds, right? It’s pretty weird. But it’s also kind of reassuring we’re all doing the right thing.

So let’s begin the list, in no particular order:
Annette and Billy
Tolya and Otto
-Bill and Maria

Congrats to everyone. Yay!

Water For Chocolate

Did I mention how much I love being a quasi stay-at-home-dad?

Today Lily and I walked down the block to Water For Chocolate, hung out with the owners and came back to eat a wonderfully awesome meal with homemade brownies!

I [heart] city life.

Sharing Is Caring A La Jane

I don’t know why, but I feel like sharing, like Jane.

  • Sometimes I don’t like sleep as much as most people do. I feel like I could be getting stuff done during that time. If given the opportunity to eat a pill that would take the place of sleep (with out any side effects, of course) I would take the pharmaceutical company up on their offer.
  • I like a lot of pop music: Justin Timberlake (or J.T. as we say around the house), Shakira, Letters to Cleo, Avril Lavigne, The Cardigans, Lisa Loeb, Jellyfish and the Posies.
  • When I worked in radio, I looked forward to every day, even though I got paid 1/2 of the industry standard for my craft.
  • I saw Pearl Jam last weekend at the Verizon Center and it rekindled a flame for them that I never had. I never really got in to them, but for some reason they are speaking to me now.
  • If I could eat anything all day, it would be Amy’s soy cheese pizza, Whole Food’s Chocolate Soy Milk (not the new organic kind, just the normal kind) and Mom’s mandle bread with chocolate chips.
  • Emily and I talked about being famous and rich last night. We felt I could handle the fame as Emily said I was “grounded.” I guess I agree with that statement, but I am not sure I would want the attention. I go back and forth depending on the circumstances.
  • My first concert was Poison. I went with my father and I am proud of it as I was rarely ever embarrassed by my parents.
  • I lock my car door at least 2 times. Sometimes 3. And I check the Studio’s front door at least twice before leaving.
  • Two weeks ago I had over 11,000 emails in my inbox. Today I have 9. I finally let go.
  • I used to think I was going to become a serious drug addict and was going to die in the gutter. The Basketball Diaries really messed me up in High School.
  • Sometimes I like animals more than I like people.
