I've wanted to start a blog for some time but was stuck at the very beginning. What to write!? It's easy to get caught up in trying to be original or funny, touching or informative. Should I document fashion trends? Post various photos? Satirize U.S. politics? My search continued until recently...the first Tuesday. A close someone and I found ourselves with a completely free day. We'd planned coffee with computers, a trip to the mall, a meal here and there, a Monty Python movie, and some hot toddies. We're fun as hell! Anyway...from this day, Tuesdays with Jonny arose.

5/31/11- is it Tuesday already?

No, but seriously.  Is it?  You know the old adage time flies when you're having fun?  They're not just whistling dixie!  Jess and I have been (quite literally) walking our feet off all over this great big city, catching all the sights we possibly can, and acting like the dorkiest tourists ever.  As you see above I was able to find some time today to make it to the gym, a crowning achievement compared to the last month of full-on hiding from the gym.  I also had Thai with my mom, Jess and friends.  Showed the girl a revolving dining room on the 44th floor of the Marquis.  And saw Kung Fu Panda 2.  Kick ass Tuesday!!!  

I wonder what you were up to:

Text #1:  "Beer tasting in full effect"

Apparently my talented friend Luann (yes, I am now a follower of hers) not only has a rad blog but also knows how to throw a party.  I thought we were living it up until I saw this plate of cheese and hershey's with a beer flight backdrop!  That's Fatty McHack's wet dream right there!

Text #2:  "Fancy huh?"

Kaeleen does well at finding leisure when she should be working.  I'd like to give a shout out to her groomer there who has lovely manicured man hands.

Text #3:  "Just finished painting my room.  Look familiar?"

I'm not sure Colte's feng shui is correct with the placement of the bed in front of the window, but something about those colors together is oddly reminiscent of an apartment we once shared.  I'll be considering it an homage to me.

Text #4:  "Here's my Tuesday...bringing life back into my garden!"

Monica, I'm not sure it counts as a garden if all of the plants are still in green plastic pots from Home Depot...

Text #5:  (no caption)

Jeremy knows that when surrounded by such serenity a picture is worth a thousand words.  The mountains, the rolling waves, the sand...the Christmas tree...the creepy steam boat. 

Text #6:  "The view from my work.  Use whatever you want."

Out of the 11, that's right 11, photos that Leslie sent I chose this cool pic.  Judging by the proximity I'm assuming she's working air traffic control these days.

Text #7:  "Playing fetch with the cutest dog in the world."

Hear that dog lovers?  Miss Schmidt is saying her dog is cuter than yours.  Do I smell Tuesday's first annual dog off??  Winner gets a milk bone.

Text # 8:  "Kelly went shopping today!  New toy!!

Kelly is speaking in the third person and Kelly should have mentioned that Kelly was in the market for a new camera because  I have a Canon EOS Rebel S from 1995 or so that I would have given Kelly for cheap.

Text #9:  "Dinner at Bangkok House and then we'll be off to see Harry Potter!!  Fun times!! Jonny, hope you are havin' fun too!!"

How to succeed at stealing jobs from trained singers who committed their lives to the study music and the pursuit of a dream.  Bangkok house with Faithie and co. was lovely though  : )

Text #10:  "the perps!"

Jessica, really!  How can such cool kicks (I have a very similar pair in a sensible shade of blue) even be in the lineup?  Sure they gave you a huge, nasty blister.  Sure you've been limping around the city for 2 days.  But...they're awful cozy if you're just sitting.

Final Thoughts

Today was a great day in a long line of great days.  I'm loving seeing my city in a completely new light with someone who delights in discovery and appreciates adventure.  Try to remember this:  you may grow weary of things in your everyday from time to time.  This doesn't necessarily mean they don't have a place anymore.  Allow yourself to take a step back and make sure to look through all the different lenses of your mind's eye.  You may be very surprised at what you see.

Till next time...

Jonny, if I knew you were going to have a hissy fit, I would have taken a picture at a different show.
