I sit in a Home Depot parking lot, stealing WiFi from a hotel to upload this. Crysta and I drove to Rhinelander, WI to enjoy my family's annual vacation on Lake Thompson -- this is Part 1 of this vacation. There will be at least a part 2, if not a part 3. Enjoy.
Music in this entrly is by, of course, Happy Wednesday. It's a new track that will be on the forthcoming "Beacon of Awesome" album. To explain the song, it's best described as "If Nine Inch Nails, Stabbing Westward, or Late 90's Filter recorded the Hokey Pokey." You can download the MP3 of the song here if you want.
I am dead serious when I say that Crysta and I are currently sitting in a Home Depot parking lot. We're in my parent's new Saturn Vue (as my Van was parked in) using these gleamed moments of the internet to check e-mail, read blogs, and make sure the internets didn't burn down without us. It's actually quite liberating to be disconnected from the world out at the cabin, but sometimes you need to upload a video.
Crysta and I arrived in the Northwoods on Saturday (as you see happening in the video). On Sunday Afternoon my parents arrived, and on Sunday night David and Mary showed up. My sister Jennifer flies in on Tuesday, thus completing the Dorn clan. Crysta and I will only be here until Sunday (as Crysta has to work on Monday and I need to prepare for Kakkoi Con), but it's nice to get a full week.
This is my favorite place in the world.
I'll keep you guys updated as life progresses in this generally forward direction.
