We had our very first Gridiron rehearsal tonight. It's an annual show I've done for the past ten years. The three shows we do raise money for journalism scholarships and several people I work with have been on the receiving end of that $.
The shows are April 23, 24, and 25 and tickets can be bought here (shameless plug, I know).

Today's nasty weather gave me the perfect excuse to make a pot o' chili. I made it using ground chicken and an ounce of bittersweet chocolate (sounds crazy, but it adds a really nice depth).
I spent most of the day snuggling with my computer working on a video of my Cherokee Maiden friends. Check it out.

Sister Stella got all dogged-up and performed with the Cherokee Maidens and Sycamore Swing at the Murdock Theatre (well, she sat on stage with them for a few songs and cuddled with them backstage). She looks pretty darn good with fringe, don't ya think?
I'm pretty excited because I also shot some HD video with my new Canon 5D Mark II.

Shot engagement photos of our friends Troy and Gloria at the beautiful Bartlett Arboretum. Pat, sorry to tease you with all of these Spring photos. Winter will end in Michigan soon.
Troy and Carter have been friends since they were kids. In fact, Troy still calls him Robert (that's what the R in CRG stands for). Carter started going by Carter when his professor read the roll call his first day at the University of Chicago. The guy sitting next to him said, "Hey Carter, nice to meet you." He's been Carter ever since. (He also goes by Bobby, Orville, Brother and Honey.)
Speaking of Robert/Carter/Orville/Brother/Honey, check him out here as a crazed reflector man. I think the gold reflection was getting to him.

Robin and Jen rode with me to Hutchinson where I covered the Wichita Collegiate School/Medicine Lodge basketball game. Robin teaches at WCS and Jen is a former WCS student.
I put Robin to work and had her shlep some of my shtuff. I offered to buy ice cream on the way home, but I was the only one who took myself up on my offer.

Nick raps during a Smuggling YoYos show at the Shadow. A surprise 30th birthday bash was thrown for Lori. She was surprised by the party and the plans that her husband had made to drag Lori onstage and sing a duet with her. Here is a video of their awesome performance.
