Inflation Shock

What is happening around here?? I feel like we're stuck in a downward spiral these days. Everyone at work is nervous - business has began to slow down, and there's a general feeling of unease in the air. Many of our competitors and even some of our clients have began laying people off. Some days I feel as if the axe could fall on me too!

I guess the one good thing is that we don't have much to lose. We are not too heavily invested in the stock market, and our fortunes aren't directly tied to the financial industry - like much of Charlotte is. But indirectly, we certainly are. Anyway, you know what they say about one door closing and another one opening?




Thanks Matt for reminding me how cool this band was (especially the Hash Pipe song from a while back). I haven't really heard too much from them prior to this latest record. I have been cranking up their first album a lot this week around the house - much to Jennifer's chagrin. Quaid digs them though.

Kung Fu Panda

This movie was great. I'm not usually into these assembly-line animated flicks that Hollywood figured out were cash cows a while back, and now churns out with increasing regularity. This was an awesome one, though. Go see it.



Here is where Jen will be this weekend. Obviously, this should be on her blog, but I haven't posted anything in a while, so here it is. She's taking McKenna - I'll be home with Quaid and Aydan - going to see Kung Fu Panda.
