So, first we went to Wisconsin. We went to the state fair, some weird biodome things, and The Dropkick Murphys concert.




Then we drove back and my cousin came down, since it was her birthday, and we went to the cities. We stopped at Minnesota's Largest Candy Store.


And then we went to VALLEYFAIR!!!


(continued)

Then we drove up to the Mall of America and had supper at Margaritaville.
















Then drove back and hit the farm around one in the morning. Then drove to South Dakota today and worked 11-4. Long, long, looooong week.

Cousin!!

And she definitely is, we're very close. She just has better makeup skills and cuter hair! And more tattoos. And piercings.

...ok, she's like a cooler version of me.

So what's your cousin doing? Is she single? Are you single? Holla at ya boy.

But really it all looks like a fun week!
10 days ago - Saturday 8/12/17 - 9:23:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Haha, she is not single, she's in a pretty serious relationship! But I'll pass on your regards

It was a super fun week, but reeeeeally exhausting. Can't wait to sleep tonight.

You guys have the same glasses.


She does have better hair, though

Her glasses are splotches of blue, mine are solid blue. Get your eyes checked, old man!

WELL SH*T

I love her glasses, though, I want a pair

I dig her septum piercing too...

Is she the same chick in your fb pic?
10 days ago - Saturday 8/12/17 - 11:25:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yup!

She's cute. That nose ring's gotta go, though.
10 days ago - Saturday 8/12/17 - 11:32:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm gonna bedazzle my nose. It's gonna be so shiny that I cause traffic accidents.

I'm still really jealous.

And I'm still waiting for the those videos you promised to send

Make sure to work in some glow in the dark sh*t so you can have fun disco dance party on your face every night

Wiggles, my parents finally posted their videos on facebook! Give me a second and I'll tag you in them. I don't think I got any good pics of Rancid though...

My face is ALWAYS a fun dance party. Except for right after I wake up.

Oh man I always loved their version of Johnny we hardly knew ya. And I would love to visit Minneapolis. The skyways are really interesting to... Non Minnesotans.

Did you finish the story about the demon musicians? Also I found this Chinese folk rock from inner Mongolia... What is that traditional string instrument called you always hear, anyway they mix it with guitar riffs I thought I'd throw it your way.

You got a job in SD?

They played that one live, it was amazing. They also played some stuff from their new album, it was awesome!!!

I did finish the story! Unfortunately, most other people didn't like it as much as I hoped they would. But I still had fun writing it! You can read it here!

Also - I think the stringed instrument you're hearing in that video is an Erhu, which is like a two-stringed Chinese violin kinda. Thanks for the video, I'm digging it!

I am living in SD just for the summer while I wait to start grad school!

Also, I haven't bragged about my embroidery for a while, so I think I'm overdue!

I tried a new embroidery technique, this one is called needle painting. I decided to do a stingray, just a little one, because I wanted to start small and relatively simple.




I'm actually really happy with how this one turned out! I didn't have high hopes because it was my first try, but I love the style and I'm definitely going to practice it some more.

Here's some a progress pic:




And bonus cat picture (he was mad I wouldn't let him eat my embroidery thread)

I'll read it after work. I loooove the stingray though.

Well I thought it was cool. I don't ever read horror in my free time so I"m not really able to give constructive criticism, aside from what you said about the music itself it's all-treble music and the bass is normally barely audible (srsly) so the line about the bassist driving the music was weird, but most people wouldn't know anyway.

What I do like is the ambiguity of your pieces, of the few I've read I notice you always leave them open ended so it kinds of sits in your mind for a while afterwards and stews... I like that. The part about stereotypes was funny too. I think you could extend it into a longer story if you wanted...
