so this weekend was so chill, it was absolutely smashing. friday started off with me shaving my head to the skin because i finally decided that enough was enough and it was time for change. 2 years of not cutting my hair.. and then i now have nothing on my head. months of not being able to touch some parts of my head had me just feeling the freeness of my scalp all night. friday night was my night to catch up with a very close friend over some great soup and pasta. it was so relaxed and easy... it was a nice time of fellowship.

actually, this is NOT going to turn into a blog that just retraces my steps over the last weekend. here's some meat. sunday after church, tom and i went to go find some suits for bob's wedding. it was cool to hang in a low key situation... no need to worry about stuff... just hang.. it was great. got a nice jacket but no pants.. waiting on the people to call me to see if they can get it for me...

i have to admit... i gave the wrong quote on my page.. so here is the latest WITH the link. i hate SARS, but i'm thinking now that there's not much to fear anymore. it is estimated that if you are healthy then have a good chance of recovering should you contract it. something like over %80... it's a killer for those with weak immune systems. anyways, here's the update.
