The Happidy Haps (A.K.A. – What Is Happening)

October 9, 2009 Leave a comment

Although I’m fairly certain most anyone reading this knows me personally, unless I become famous over night, or it’s actually months from now and my blog has gained a massive following and someone is going back through the archives to see where it all started… I digress… Although I am fairly certain most anyone reading this knows me personally, I feel like I should put an update on here of my life.  After all isn’t that what a blog is? I believe it is derived from the roots “b” and “log.”  “b” Of course being short for “what be happening” and “log” being a word referring to a written account of something. Thus a “blog” is really a “written account of what be happening.”

And now that I’ve explained all that I’ll write an account of what be happening.

First off some quick blog business: Fitness Friday is going to be pushed to saturday…but only this week.  This is because I am going to do day 2 of my 3 day workout after I’m done typing this, then I’ll do day 3 saturday so I can talk about my first completed week of studliness.  Also if I posted it on Friday it would be like two posts in one day which is madness.

Now on to my life:

I have started working as a District Executive for the Pike’s Peak Council Boy Scouts of America.  Basically I work with volunteers, and recruit kids, and raise funds for the Boy Scouts.  Here are some of the high points and low points of the job:

High Points

  • I get to interact with a lot of different people
  • I get official business cards
  • I get to work with an organization I believe in
  • I get an awesome Boy Scouts uniform
  • I can go in late sometimes
  • I have sweet popcorn hook-ups


  • The hours are a little weird
  • Dave calls me a Brownie

Over all though it seems like it’ll be a great job.  I’ve only been at it for a week but I’ve learned a lot and look forward to learning and doing more.

Also a friend of mine and I are looking at places to live, the future home of Mr. & Mr. Nathan and Joe…we’ll be in separate rooms of course.  It’s been interesting, I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t shed a few tears over the process.  Not a whole lot to tell there, we may be closing in on an option but no one knows for sure…unless you are someone from the future reading the archives then you probably know exactly how the whole situation pans out… If only I knew now what you will know then.

Those are the two biggest developments in my life right now but as an added bonus I’m going to give you a few things to mull over, I’ll call them “things I’m digging.”

Things Nathan Is ‘Digging’ (aka – Things Nathan is Enjoying/ A Fan Of)

  • This Season of How I Met Your Mother
  • The Season Premier and the Wedding Episode of The Office (the 2 episodes in between were let-downs)
  • The New David Crowder *Band CD
  • This Site
  • More specifically, this product on that site:


Seriously I want a pair of these. I wonder if they come in my size.

  • My Gal – this is where you can all say “awwwwwe” and I can earn me some brownie points!
  • Treasure Island, that’s right I’m reading it, I found an old school copy at Goodwill for cheap and it’s awesome

That’s all for tonight I hope you found this “written account of what be happening” interesting.  I trust the many bullet points I used were a good way to disseminate information.

Have a wonderful morning/day/evening (please use whichever is applicable to you in reference to the time you are reading this)
