The Clean Artist.

I stopped by a local art supply store to inquire about a part-time job and was asked a unique question that no one has ever asked me before, "So, are you an Artist?"  I've done a lot of creative work, for myself, for others, for class assignments, but have never really thought of myself as an Artist; although, the very simplistic definition of the word is one who creates art.  As I have this conversation in my head, I quickly answer, "Yes", with a proud smile.  And the sales associate/artist behind the counter says, "Really?  You look too clean to be an artist..."  Now that's funny!  I've never read the book on appearances of an artist, but ok, I'll take it and reply with, "Well, that's what I am, a clean artist."  Not exactly sure if that will help or hurt my application.

Step One Complete.

I am back everyone, glad to see you all again; this time writing from Atlanta, Georgia.  The wedding was beautiful, the reception was a blast, and the honeymoon was an excellent vacation!  Everything everyone says about weddings and receptions for the bride and groom are correct.  It has been officially verified.  Your own wedding/reception is always your favorite.  It does go by in the blink of an eye.  And the photographs are the most important feature of the ceremony.  Thankfully, I can remember every single moment I took part in.  The honeymoon in Curacao was all I thought it would be.  The ocean was beautiful, underwater life was brilliant, the dutch architecture was breathtaking, the restaurants were tasty, and the happy hour was very nice.  Service at most of the restaurants was slow, that is, in comparison to our American standard of "get them in and get them out."  Finally, we've arrived in Georgia with our cars, and have signed a lease on a new apartment which we'll move into in a couple weeks.  Next is the all important job search.  Lyndsey has already had a great start and I just have lots of ideas in mind.  Tomorrow, I'll introduce myself to many local businesses.  Wish us luck.

Wedding Day.

Luckily the hotel has high-speed internet access, so here I am once more, writing on the big day. It's been a great past few days with nothing but success all around. All my buddies from out of town have made it safely and on time, rehearsal went great, and our BBQ dinner was outstanding. Except for an interesting little song number my mother arranged at the dinner, all was as expected. I can't wait to see everyone at the ceremony and reception tonight. It will be quite a party filled with the sounds of mariachi's during dinner. What more could a guy ask for?

Beautiful friend, The End.

This will probably be my last post for the next few weeks as I get caught up in all things Life, so catch up with the archives if you haven't done so already. To everyone at work who is visiting for the first time, the layout is pretty simple and easy to follow. At the end of each post is a link to leave comments about each entry. Blogger (which is powered by Google) is still refining this section so you either have to be a member or post anonymously, but you could include your name with your comment if you were so inclined.

It's been a great run here and I will miss you guys, I'll miss the luminous tower, the bridge out my window, and Double Dave's. Take care of yourselves, respect each other, and appreciate the world around you because it's such an awesome place. And for everyone who's been asking, we'll be visiting the Dutch Island of Curacao for our honeymoon. It's located here. 3 Weeks till we Go to Georgia!
