Happy Happy, Joy Joy

Yup, it’s been a while since I posted. I started writing a post yesterday, but it just wasn’t flowing. Today, however, it’s flowing like water... in a pipe... that is hooked up to a sink... and the sink is full, so the water really has to get going – gravity and all. Seeing that my last post was such a downer, I’m bouncing back with things to be happy about.

Thing #1: Bruno Gets Published
For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been a cartoonist off and on since college. I drew a strip for the Arkansas Traveler and then I did my own work-related strip for about a year and a half. While I enjoyed my cartooning, my friend Bruno wipes his butt with comics. If you haven’t read it yet, I seriously encourage you to go read K City.

K City is Bruno’s comic about K’s (the main character) dating adventures in Kansas City. They’re hilarious and spot on. Not only that, but they’re now published. If you have today’s Kansas City Star, check out the extra section (or click on the thumbnail to see the comic). From what I understand, he should have a strip in the Star each Thursday for the rest of the month. Congratulations Bruno, that’s truly awesome.

Thing #2: Wendy Begins New Chapter
Sometimes when love finds you, it’s not a gentle tap on the shoulder... sometimes it grips you. From the moment that Wendy and Henry met, they were gripped. Last weekend they were married in the rooftop gardens of Wendy’s apartment building. Wendy will not only spend her time with Henry, but also his two children from a previous marriage. And as if that wasn’t enough, rumor is there’s a third on the way!

To Hendy (that’s Henry and Wendy mixed into one name), congratulations x2 and I’m excited to see what the years ahead hold for your family.

Thing #3: This World Isn’t Manley Enough
No, that’s not a misspelling... it’s the last name of some of my good friends, who told me yesterday that they’re expecting their third child in the coming year! Their latest edition just turned a year not too long ago, so this was definitely a surprise to me. You guys rock, congratu-freakin-lations! Oh, and encourage Sam to write in her blog again.

Thing #4: Work Still Rawks
I’m still super pumped about working at SHS. In just the past month:

Thing #5: Found Footage
This last January, Todd and I went on our yearly snowboarding expedition. This time while there, since it was just the two of us, we decided to make a ton of movies. Unfortunately, we got burned out on it, but we did make a few and Todd finally found them on his computer at home. Here they are:

So it’s be happy time. When I count to three, I’ll snap my fanguhs and you’ll be happy. 1 — 2 — 3 — BE HAPPY!

I came very close to crapping myself when I saw the "It Sounded Like a Good Idea - Knife Boot" video. Brilliant.

Yay, I've been mentioned. How exciting. And how sweet that you are so excited. Love it, love you.
And I felt guilted enough to post a new entry on the good ol' blog.

Holy Crap! I was watching that wedding from my office window but it never dawned on me that it would have been Wendy's!

Wait, Scoot, you just saw Wendy's wedding, right? Not the conception of the latest Manley? That would be awkward.

No worries Sam... even if he did see you (which I'm assuming is possible, since all he does is sit around his place, and office, and spy on people with his binoculars), he doesn't know what you look like.

Ha! Thanks for linking to Bruno's work - I was unable to stop giggling there for a moment.
