I will try to tittle things so you know which is which, but I will be writing everyday things about my life along with some of my thoughts on Philosophy, life, acting, family, and just life in general. Sometimes I will go off about our pop culture and the media. I can't help it when you have the programing we have today.
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy.

An Engagement over "BURN AFTER READING"
Burn After Reading was on TV; and I was probably 15 minutes into the film. I was shifting around trying to get comfortable on the couch with Michelle, 2 glasses of wine, and Roxie (our fantastic K-9, well, K-2 maybe). After not paying attention, we started the movie over.
Wait, shit, stop!
Let me take you back 45 minutes before this. I had planned to pick up a package from Michelle's brother; but guess what? They were not home. They were partaking in a convenient family outing. I needed this package! I actually didn't need it; because the event that I was going to use this package for, was not suppose to be until Thanksgiving. My original place was when I had snuck out of the house alone to pick up a couple bottles of Michelle's favorite wine. During that time, I was going to grab the ring from his house. Now, I am rushing downstairs to take Roxie to pee in the yard while Michelle's brother is dropping it off to me. During this time, Michelle was taking a bath. I get the ring from her brother. The only problem now is that it's in my hand. The one thing I know for sure, "it's suppose to be on her hand". After weighing my options between the kitchen and the living room ... I know it doesn't sound romantic; but to MY Michelle, (like how I said, MY, there:), as long as it was her and I together, it would be a romantic place.
So my luck is Burn After Reading was killing me with some great actors; but it wasn't enough since Michelle had to take a pee break because of the of the wine. Perfect timing. Now what do I do with it? I decided I should try and set the camera on the counter to catch a quick, joyous, occasion before that package I was trying to get goes in to play. I refilled the wine, and had the camera aimed at the fridge. The living room didn't work... Michelle came out; and I was by the cabinet. I told her she needed to put the wine in the fridge while I grabbed snacks from the cabinet. As she walked in front of the fridge, I followed into camera frame that had shrunk to a height of just below Michelle's chin. (Shit! Oh, well... You saw part of the moment :). I asked her to Marry me, and made it down to both knee's. It was like a question in a prayer, I guess?? Anyway, after I pulled a small white box out of "THE PACKAGE", I held a white ring box out to Michelle. She said YES! by the way... Well, a yes followed by a "ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS?" Then, she said yes a few more times. Oh, and I am sure she will tell you that I opened the box upside down. You can't win them all.
But this one, I won...
She is now officially the future Mrs. Michelle West! (From Michelle: "And that makes me the happiest woman in the world!!!!!!)
We will figure out how to get a few pics of the ring soon!
