adam evers


This here is my good friend, Adam.  He is one of the hardest working, smartest, most brutally honest people I know.  I foresee a lifetime of friendship with him and on regular occasions, deep conversation and brainstorming businesses.  One of the parts I admire most about him is his unbelievably ridiculous understanding of what a deep friendship is.  I have yet to be able to love and support someone as much as Adam is willing to.  He is one of those lifers.  Someone to count on when you’re facing a rough patch, the person with which to grab a six-pack – head to an abandoned building – climb to the roof and scream at the world.  Completely without judgment.

He sweats friendship.

And I cherish ours.

Did I mention he’s single?

Find him on Twitter – he’s well worth the tweets.

Cheers to a lifetime of happy hours, laughter, and telling each other the truth,


P.S. I’ve started another book: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.  I’m fairly certain it will go down in history as one of my favorites.  I laugh with every turn of the page.  Once, I peed my pants a little as a result.  Deal with it.  You can thank my itty-bitty squirrel bladder.

Adding to my wishlist.

my very own Barbie

I have this good friend that lives in LA.  He’s humorous, contemplative, and always up for an adventure.  Jeyk moved across the nation last year, but we keep in touch – so it’s all gravy!  He’s the kind of person you can count on to take you to the doctor when you’re on your deathbed, to chase down an LA food truck because you’ve never done it before, the kind of guy to layer up on a chilly summer day and walk along Santa Monica Beach talking about business, future, friendship… appreciate this guy muchos.

Anyway, today I was going about my business (read: work, working out, thinking [a lot]) and the doorbell rings.

There on my front step, lies a box from Amazon with my name on it.  I don’t recall ordering anything, so I secretly hope a box of Green and Black’s 85% Organic Dark Chocolate was shipped to the wrong person – which is really the right person because I love me some über dark organic chocolate.  Ka-pow!
I sliced open the box, took out the packaging and found a wrapped present.  The note read:

Immediately I laughed, because this is one heck of a thoughtful little gift.  And it really couldn’t have come on a better weekend.

Months back, Jeyk emailed me a picture of this Barbie and said it should be named the Emily Barbie.  Dark brown hair, long braid… somewhat sporty outfit.  The bow and arrow are yet to be mastered, but it’s a character from The Hunger Games, which I think the world of.  This is Katniss Everdeen… the feisty game-changer from the series.  If you haven’t watched it yet, stop reading this blog post and get your arse to Redbox.  Better yet, get the book and read that – there are so many more details in it.

I’m setting up this little doll on my bookshelf.
As a reminder of feisty characters, a reminder of Jeyk, and a reminder that once in a while, guys will surprise you and do something unexpected.
So thank you Jeyk, for making my day brighter.
Tonight I’m thankful for communication and relationships both near and far.
