I Can’t Handle the Guilt

…of causing my viewers to go blind. Despite my fondness for the retro Nagel-esque male profile that existed in the previous background (which didn’t even last 24 hours), here’s a more tame background.

I must agree with all of you that the brightness was a tad disturbing – and in no way indicative of my dark personality. The subtle tones here are more in line with who I am, I suppose.

Currently, we have an assortment of rather boring backgrounds to choose from. Rumor has it that we’re going to be offered more – possibly (and hopefully) with the ability to customize them. If that ever happens, expect to find that little man return in a lovely muted charcoal and burgundy.

Wel, today’s the big day. At approximately 2PM I leave work, meet up with Mike, pick up our Mini-Cooper and head to the Cape. I’m really looking forward to it despite the rains that are expected late Saturday evening and Sunday. But it appears we’ll have a good stretch of weather until then.

I’ve not been to Ptown in the off-season in years, so this should be fun. I just hope it’s warm enough to enjoy walking along the beach (not laying out, obviously). And I’m hoping that, being a weekend, there will be more shops open with some great off-season sales.

Mike gets to meet my parents this afternoon, too (EEK). Many of you have met them in the past – any advice? Fortunately, my parents are pretty low-key and have liked everybody I’ve introduced them to except for a few ex-girlfriends back in high school. Otherwise, they seem to enjoy when I bring people down with me. Then again, my guest and I usually either take them out to a restaurant or cook them dinner.

HHHMMM – maybe it’s the free food they look forward to and not company?

    As and Ex-Stand-In for many years, I can say your parental units don’t have a bad bone in their bodies.. You have nothing to worry about! Tell them I miss them and send them my love.. (Tell your Dad that I still think about him dancing with me @ the Firemans Ball, remember that?hehe.. what a guy) hey, Make sure you take Mike to the top of the tower.. slacker.. Enjoy!

    What’s scary about your parents??? But then, they love me! (Oh wait. Maybe it’s because I’m NOT one of your exes?) No sweat, just let it happen; you do not need advice. Except perhaps this: Should the dog be sprayed by a skunk, under no circumstances should you two plunk it in the bathtub and massage it with tomato sauce. I daresay that could set a negative tone… bringing someone to Meet The Parents and turning their dog pink during the same visit. Have fun; I mostly remember tooooo much being closed in the off season, but then, it was winter, not spring. See ya!
