So this happened

(Note the third finger on the left hand, aka "the ring finger")

I like to do things a little differently, so I'm thinking first marriage around the time most people are on their third is a good way to go.

Remarkably, and naively, I thought this would put an end to all the questions from friends, family, etc. But it only seemed to spur additional questions.

People sure are weird.

On the road again

Back to the airport today, after just getting back on Friday. Heading to the client for a few days on-site.

I can't really complain too much about being on a plane every week for 6 or 8 weeks since a lot of people spend nearly every weekday in the air. I couldn't imagine that.

Especially in the summer where, literally, every other flight (or more) is delayed or even canceled. And where you're flying regularly in out of the worst airport in the country -- Dulles.

But it will all be worth it. This time next week I'll be getting on another plane -- only this one will be taking me away to vacation.

Seven days ...

Farmer Ted

Outstanding in my field

I've been on a minor roll, acting-wise. Two commercials in two weeks, both principal roles.

Could have had an industrial next week as well, but the price was a little low, given the time and location.

It's been a busy time overall, with lots of travel (for me, at least), going back and forth to DC for client work, up to Minnesota for a commercial shoot, the burbs for meetings. Lots of different work projects hitting all at once, along with ongoing book promotion.

So yeah, all that.

Strangely, I was really looking forward to this commercial shoot four hours downstate. Even though it was ridiculously hot in that cornfield and the bugs were like I'd never seen before, it was mercifully short. And I got to see a part of the state I'd never seen before.

It's pretty down there! Hills, trees, lakes. And lots and lots of windmills. It's crazy -- I just love seeing new stuff.
