take these broken wings

I've made it through to another weekend, and fortunately I am not working at my part-time Saturday or Sunday. I am, however, still planning to run around an awful lot till Saturday evening. Tonight, I'm heading into my beautiful hometown, Chattanooga. But I'm technically "working," though, as I'm helping my friend Josh set up a new website and transition into using a new server. Then, tomorrow, I may have a little Chill Time in the morning, and I'm going to stop by and pay a visit to my little friend Quentin to celebrate his first birthday and show his mommy some logo ideas. Then, oh finally, then... the world will stop spinning, and we'll trek out into the woods for camping.

I've only been camping once before, so I am by no means a seasoned enthusiast, but I am very enthusiastic, nonetheless. When I am in the woods with the crackling fire, the twinkling stars, the leaves rustling in the cold wind, everything stops. Fifteen minutes feels like an hour, an hour feels like a whole night, and the whole night feels like a week. I can unwind, and I will unwind this Saturday night. And all this hurrying around this past week, tonight, and tomorrow morning will make it just that much sweeter to sit in the dark and relax with my family and friends.

If I don't return to Blogger, check Michael's weblog to find out if I went completely insane, stripped off all my clothes, and ran off naked through the woods, yelling, "Look at me! I am the wind! I AM THE WIND!" It's a strong possibility right now, and if that happens, there's really no coming back.

I think I'd make a nice Crazy Mountain Girl, myself.

I am SO not an outdoors person. I am at home with my technology and creature comforts. I'm going camping because I love my wife and she wants me to go. This should be interesting...

I too have only been camping once before, but I totally loved it, despite the fact that I expected to hate it. I'm looking forward to going again sometime soon. Have fun "wind"! Make sure that you let Michael bring his iPod!

She told me not to bring it, but you know what? She's not home and I'm leaving this afternoon. Therefore, I'm bringing it. It goes everywhere with me now.

Have you ever encountered a wild mountain girl? They are very dangerous... They get lonely and hungry out there so they rape and feed upon anyone they encounter.

Well, since you said your an indoorsmen, my guess is she raided your house for food and indoor plumbing.
