As of this morning, I am officially on vacation for Spring Break. Regularly scheduled life will resume again next Monday morning. In the mean time, I’ve got about a week and a half of good down time to recharge my batteries. Last year at about this time I was getting all geared up to head to Ketchican for a week of snow-packed fun in Alaska. It’d be nice to follow that with an equally or nicer spot for this coming week, but I never got around to making plans, so it’s just going to be doing some odds and ends around DFW, and a lot of hitting the snooze button.

One of the things I’m planning on doing with next week is recording another episode of The Status Bro Show. Episode #5 just went up on iTunes last night, so you can find it there or go to our FeedBurner page for lots of other subscription options. We’re trying to figure out something special to do for our Spring Break episode, so hopefully it should prove to be a truly sensational episode. I don’t mean to toot my own horn (well, maybe I do), but if you haven’t checked the show out yet, we’re getting generally fantastic reviews from our audience. Why don’t you try on The Status Bro Show, I’m sure the fit will be good.

Something else I’m planning on doing is heading out to Dallas later in the week to go and check out the Dallas Auto Show. Me and my pop have had a standing tradition for a number of years now that we go and visit the show every time it’s in town, but for whatever reason weren’t able to make good on that tradition last year. It’ll be nice to spend an afternoon with the papa unit looking at some fine cars.

Speaking of hanging with the Dad, we’re planning on spending one morning hanging out and getting a little tipsy in the socially acceptable way. I will anyways. Golf I believe is what they call it. It always proves to be a fun day, so I’m looking forward to it.

So, I went on that rant last week about, essentially, wearing my heart on my sleeve. If you’ve listened to episode #5 of The Status Bro Show, than you already know that I gave myself an idea under that premise. How long have I been talking about getting a tattoo, but just keep trying to firm up ideas for a design, or just moan about how chicken I am to actually go and get it done myself. Well, I have a new idea, and actually feel like I’m man enough to finally go and get it done next week. My idea:

An 8-bit heart somewhere on my left shoulder…a little tribute to the tribe that I belong to. My tribe of nerds. Also, this way, I’m no longer speaking in metaphor when I tell people that I wear my heart on my sleeve.

I’ve wanted a tattoo for a while. I immensely respect people that feel so strongly about their ideas, musings, and passions that they want to cover themselves in them. I’ve said it before that I find little to be sexier than an inked up angel with piercings and unconventional hair. I’m fascinated, and very into that culture, and excited to join the ranks.

I might have a few other things planned for the coming week, but we’ll see what develops as the week goes on.

I hope everyone out there stays safe and has fun. And as always…

Keep your heads up, your minds sharp, and your hearts open.
