Post Weekend Update

Here we are again on a monday morning. The weekend halloween party turned out pretty good. My friend Roger's costume party was a lot of fun. My "death" costume left many people guessing until i removed my mask. haha The party probobly had a turnout of around 30 people. Even the cops showed up to tell us to close the windows and keep it down. I guess thats what Roger gets for moving into suburbia.
This past weekends football was one of those good-bad sundays. My chicago bears, are sucking. Losing their 5th in a row!! But on the upside, the Dallas cowgirls also lost and the Greenbay Packers won (i think).
That is all my thoughts for this time. Please tune in again.

Its friday, and Im getting my stuff together for a costume party saturday night at my buddy Rogers' house. And its a very good costume, i must say. I can mention it on here yet because he comes to my site and will figure it out. I wouldnt tell him when he asked earlier. You know, surprise. At a past halloween party, this costume won me Best Costume. hehe Not much happening on this friday night. Just chillin at the crib and watching tv. I'll probably post some pics from the costume party by early next week. Check back in!

Im back from Germany, recovered from my jet-lag and ready to get back to american life. Germany was a very interesting experience. I got to explore an 800 year old castle, drive on the autoban and mingle with many people who had no idea what I was really trying to say. Starting the trip, Jenna and I landed in Frankfurt. We spent about two days there. For those who have never been, Frankfurt is a busy, crowded city with NO parking what-so-ever. Our hotel only had two parking spots for its customers use, so we ended up parking at a train station (hauptbanhoft) about 5 blocks away and walking back. And during this walk back, we got lost and had to catch a cab to find our hotel. By the second day we were ready to get out of the concrete maze called Frankfurt. We packed everything into our Mercedes A-140 and drive an hour south to Hiedelburg. This was a much more interesting place. The Hiedelburg Castel overlooks the city. And it was a much easier place to navigate. Soon I will be posting pictures on my Adventure page from this city, and the rest of my trip. My flight back was a painfully long 11 hours. At least airplane food is getting better. I ate better than I do at home! haha Check the site later this week for my best pics from this big adventure!

Its finally here, Friday! Just 2 days left until I leave for Germany. I have so much to do, its going to be a busy 2 days. My camera is ready and I cant wait to return with mucho cool pictures to add to my site. Not much in the way of exciting today. Work is very slow. The final 45 minutes are going to just crawl. All I can think is, "I am 45 minutes away from a weeks vacation". COME ON CLOCK!!! MOVE!! More to come soon. Stay tuned.

Yes Sir! May I have another?

Today my um... place of employment put on what they called an "employment appreciation day" picnic. Even though I brought my lunch, im not one to pass up all you can eat free food. So, my friend Craig and I hopped in my car and headed towards the picnic grounds. The lunch offered, chilli dogs and frito pie. I was a starvin marvin so I had the lady load me up with 3 chilli dogs and a frito pie. Now, I dont even really like frito pies, but it was free and I'll be darned if im going to pass on free food even if i dont like it. I quickly downed everything on my plate and thought, I bet I could eat one more chilli dog! Oh... mistake. 30 minutes later I can barely breathe Im so full. But still smiling, as I felt I got the best of my foolish office for offering me free food! Ha! As I return to my desk, I could quickly feel the sleep monster come calling. This will be a tough afternoon.

Last night my indoor soccer team won our league championship match! It was a close one though, final score 7-6. Funny thing was we were winning 5-0 at halftime. We scored the winning 7th goal in the final 20 seconds of the game. Whew! Too close for comfort. You'd think for winning a championship game the team would get like a big trophy or something. Nope. A white t-shirt with the name of the soccer place and the word Champion on the front. Very rewarding i tell ya.
My buddy Dan fly's back to L.A. today. Yes, I will miss that boy. He always has interesting stories of his life in the really big city. I only got to hang with him for 2 of the days he was here. We had a blast as usual. He mentioned to me that his buddies back at Honda HQ have been taking a peek at my site now and then. In that case, let me take a moment to give a big shout out to John M., Jason D. and anyone else I forgotten that slaves daily under the rule of corperate Honda. Thanks for checking up guys!

Pre-weekend thinking

Today is thursday and my bud Dan from LA fly's back into dallas tonight. His plane comes in at 11pm! Of course he'll be on LA time so to him it will be 9pm. Im sure he'll want to do something. I am predicting a tired Thorpe come work on Friday morning. Its worth it though. To see his face when i greet him at the airport pretending to be his long lost gay lover, estatic to see him. Yeah, its pretty funny. He tries to act like he doesnt know me and to keep walking. But you can only run so far from a screaming maniac who wants a hug. hahahahaha Boy i hope he reads this. Why does today feel like friday?
