The new kitchen


Hell's Bells, Wednesday Weekly, the move-in was a complete 110-degree success. The blistering sun did not deter us from shlepping our stuff across town in a rented truck and carrying it four stories up to the new apartment.

Everything is just about unpacked — aside from a few dozen paperback novels The Librarian owns.

As the dust settled and the two additional roommates became more accustomed to the new digs, I cooked up the first meal in the place: Spaghetti and homemade meatballs. It was a complete success as I only set the smoke alarm off once...

Of course, this is not our first foray into River Market Living. Only this time the building seems a lot more... quiet. I mean... unsettlingly silent at all hours of the day. I am wondering if that will continue or if that is just one off weekend...

The new neighbors are nice.
The new commute is a breeze.
The new view is pretty cool.

Sticking around for another year...

It seems the price for being a world-famous blogger is about $10 a year. At least that is what Google demanded from me this past week when the registration for this dump was about to expire....

I figure I'll pass the cost on to my readers... which really just means my Mom now owes me $10.

Since I had to re-up my membership fees to the Google Overlords, I figured I better post something — anything — to sate your insufferable appetite for things from the WW... and to prove that, no, I have not died yet...

So, on to the good news!

The Temple of Gonzo-KC will be moving its offices back to the River Market this weekend as the Librarian and I join forces in our ongoing missions to bring peace to nations and ending world hunger... or something like that... Somehow Whisky is a part of that mission.

The Waldo neighborhood has served myself and our Resident Deep Thought-ologist well this past year, but it is time we move on from this shanty-town and into the regal and luxury to which we have grown accustomed.

Oh, and we will be welcoming a couple of new roommates into the mix: Hudson and Sawyer

8-bit Cats
That is right, WW.... get ready for some INSANE CAT VIDEOS! Marvel when I transform into EPIC KC CAT PERSON. Indulge in all the cat blogging your skull can handle.

Are you as excited as I am? Probably not, but since when have I cared what any of you think.

Onward and Upward!

Fourth of July

And so we made it through another successful Fourth of July with all of our fingers and toes still intact...

We ate ridiclous amounts of food, drank terrible beer and blew up little paper chickens and tanks all in the name of Ah-mer-a-kuh.

In Independence, fireworks are still legal and continue to be amazing...

STL Summer Vacation

With so much activity going on this summer blogging is about a frequent as a Solar Eclipse.

Work is busy.

Home is busy.

Family is busy.

But we did manage to escape for a weekend in STL with the brothers, moms and girlfriends.

Here is what we did:

Mike and Sarah at the STL Science Museum


Baby giraffe


Sleeping bear




STL Cardinals game

Cardinals Game!

It was a whirlwind weekend with an Epic Game of Cranium and thunderstorms that would make Jesus weep with fear.
