The Next Big Adventure

Ok. Big step here. I quit my job! And I moved back to my home town of Madison, WI. I've lived in the Twin Cities for 12 years now and was ready for a change. I left behind everything that has defined my life for the last 7 years in order to seek out that change, in the hopes I'd be able to settle down some day with a satisfied mind.

How many times have you heard someone say

"If I had his money, I could do things my way?"

Little they know that it's so hard to find

One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.

Nice Ride

Just making myself a respectable meal is always an "adventure". Meaning it doesn't happen all the time ; ) But here it is...

That would fuel my epic bike ride to bring you this shot...

It's a beautiful city I live in.

Just chillin...

Auf Deutsch, Bitte!

Has it really been two months since I posted last? It has. Do I still use too many words to convey my thoughts? I do.

But, inspired by the monolithic blog of a Bonaroo going friend of mine, I attempted to remember my login to this site. The fourth attempt worked! Nothing like cracking your own password.

So, about this adventure thing. I need one. Working 5 days a week makes it hard. I'm almost out of vacation time! Too many days off during the winter, trying to escape to warmer (life giving) climates.

I need to get creative...

I need to go to Deutschland!

Die Tryin'

Ok, so about those adventures I alluded to in the last post. After all, this is ADVENTURES of Fuzzy!

Here they are in rapid succession:

Austin, TX
Maui, HI
Lawrence, KS
Station 4 Gig
Madison, WI

Went to Austin to explore a new city alone and to rendevous with great friends. And check out the music scene

Went to Maui with my mom to catch some rays and a ride a few waves. And to watch the whales while drinking coffee from our lanai. And watching the sunrise from 10,000 feet.

Went to Lawrence to see one of my best friends from college get married to his Turkish bride.

Went to Madison to see Jay from Philly and Chad before he moves to Pittsburgh. And to win $30 at Ho-Chunk. My biggest take ever.

Went to Station 4 to rock like we have never rocked before. I could get used to that. Thanks to Hue and Smirsch for driving four hours to see me. Truest friends you'll ever meet.

Now that spring is here, every day continues to be an adventure.

My new motto, adapted from 50 Cent is:

"Have fun or die trying."


Unfrozen Cave Man


I have had so many adventures lately I haven't had any time to write about them! (A good problem to have...)

This winter just about killed me. Thank God it is over. Imagine an ant in a freezer walking in slow motion up the stick of a popsicle he's been dreaming of reaching for days. Except that the cold has made it nearly impossible for him to move his tiny legs. He's nearly dying due to lack of what really moves him along. That's what the winter in Minnesota does to me.

But now it's over.

Now I feel alert and industrious. Alive and thankful. Visually and aurally stimulated. It's time to make something happen...

800 miles is a drive

This weekend was great. I saw a long time friend from college get married in his home town of Lawrence, KS. I went there with our mutual friend, who also happens to be my closest friend of the last six years. The three of us had lived together in St. Paul for 9 months before he moved back to Lawrence, and we've rarely seen him since. Every time we do it's a gift.

This friend is the most top-notch kind of guy you'd ever hope to meet. Knows how to have a good time and is totally honest with you. A true friend.

Friday we had dinner and met a bunch of his friends and relatives at his parents' house. They're all good people. Went home and crashed early - it had been a long week after getting back from Hawaii the weekend before. The next day was awesome. I left all the clothes I had packed for the wedding behind, so the day of I had to shop like a mad man to get a new outfit. Luckily I had Leah's help. We got it done in record time so that we could enjoy the beautiful spring day in Lawrence. Drove to Mass. St. where the good times are found. Went to a Jordanian restaurant and had hummus, iced tea, Turkish Coffee and sheesha. It was so chill - just what I needed. I've been wanting to try Turkish Coffee since getting to know a guy from Turkey named Volkan. I kept asking him to make it for me, but he's moved back to Turkey now.

(ok, I got 4 hours of sleep last night and I'm about to pass out. I'll finish this entry soon...)


Oh, no, where are you tonight?


Ok, I'm back! It's a couple weeks later now, but that's okay. The wedding was awesome. The three of us got to catch up and hang out like back in the day. I hate when friends move away, but I love visting them in their own towns. After the wedding we got invited to hang out with Matt's Lawrence friends. A cool, fun bunch of people, we had a great time till 2:00. Would've been fun to go downstairs, but we had to drive the next day.

And drive we did. Right past Senior Tereeblay's and Deez Mo-eenay's, straight to the Eagan Panera, of all places. Great lemonade. Great weekend. Congratulations Matt & Canan!
