high on depauw.

Cinco de DePauw.

Five years ago, we graduated from the great DePauw University in sweet little Greencastle, Indiana. It's just insane that by now, we've known our college friends longer out of school than we spent in school. That's just the way the cookie crumbles, eh?

While Katie and I were driving on scenic 65 last Friday evening, she mentioned how a few of her coworkers couldn't possibly imagine going back to the college reunions. Without skipping a beat, we both acknowledged that was insane and how we actually couldn't imagine not going back.

Alas, the weekend was so much more than I expected - in the best possible way. It was as if nothing had ever changed. Sure - we all had tacked on five years in the real world or years at law school or years bumming around, not quite knowing what was next. One thing was for certain though: we all had grown more appreciation for one another (and I thought it wasn't possible).

From keg stands to 5am bedtimes to early morning convocations to beer tents to tent dances to another late night to reconvening on the 2nd floor of Kappa to laugh about did that really happen? - I sure do miss college.

So thanks to everyone who came back and to those who couldn't make it, see ya at the ten year! (YIKES)

Where DePauwty at? will never get old.

children's books are the best books.

Warning: If you have a problem with cursing, don't watch the below video.

However, if you have a sense of humor and can take things in stride, don't stop reading this post.

Adam Mansbach has written a homerun of a children's book with "Go the F*** To Sleep" and who better than Samuel L. Jackson to narrate it for us?

What would Dr. Seuss say to this?

well, this is just embarrassing.

Three weeks.

That's how long it's been since my last post. I'm a blogger embarrassment. An em-blog-asment. No? Needless to say, things are happening, but instead of a diatribe, I'll be brief.

I've been to Boston to witness baseball history:

Cousin Em lived to tell about her bachelorette party (you're welcome for posting a tame picture):

And my most exciting news, I celebrated retirement from Summit Media Group last Friday and gave "Joe" a beer called "Joe"!

Sorry for the blurriness of the picture, but you get the jist. The rumors are true: I'm no longer employed at Summit. It was a glorious ride of three and a half years, but sometimes you just know when it's time to move on. I'm on day three of the new gig (an online marketing company called LinkShare) and it is unbelievable. It's like an underground world of online marketing that's been in the works for over a decade. I feel so left out! Luckily, I've hit the ground running (business cliche? check!) and am currently on a job high.

Up next this weekend? My five year college reunion at good ol' DePauw University. How it's been five years since graduating, nobody knows. All I know is I haven't been back to Greencastle since 2006 and it is going to be a TRIP. A roadtrip.
