Holy Crap.

Well, the last post is from 2008... time to get going again? I think so. And I have a few ideas how to recreate this blog. Stay tuned, no one!

28 is GREAT.

I turned 28 yesterday. It was a great day: lunch and Mass with Tonya and Mama and Daddy, followed by Tonya presenting me with the most beautiful basketball shoes of all time. HYPERDUNKS. Yes, it must be written in all caps. HYPERDUNKS. They are the lightest, most comfortable basketball shoes EVER. HYPERDUNKS. Say it. HYPERDUNKS. Of course, these will automatically make me awesome on the court. HYPERDUNKS.

I also got many phone calls, every one of which made me happy. That glow has radiated over into today, lending Monday an excellent quality is usually lacks. Rock. On.

And music, and money, all of which point to the general fact that I am obscenely blessed with family and friends. So thanks, everybody. It was a great day.

I hope everyone is well.

Five takes is the name of a show on the Travel Channel. I have committed cryptomnesia, inadvertent plagiarism based on a breakdown of source memory, or the ability to know from where we heard something. The insidious part is that the familiarity bias, where things we encounter more often seem more positive, made the name seem really good. But it wasn't my idea. And being a psychologist allows me to give a name to my sorrow.

Suggestions for another snappy name for the book?

I hope everyone is well.

Peace, Joe

I can post from my iPhone

Woo-hoo!!! I have been looking for an application to post from my iPhone, and then finally had the "bduh" moment of remembering the phone has a fully functional browser. So I'm doing this normally, just with my iPhone.
