In like a lion?

April is getting off to quite an active start.  Lots of stuff has happened this week--some of which people might think were April Fools jokes from me if they had all happened on Sunday.

Speaking of April Fools Day, Brandon and I had a pretty small prank for IndyDDR.com this year.  We threw around a few different ideas and eventually whittled them down to whatever would require the least amount of effort to actually implement.  What we ended up with was randomized avatars.  The avatars for each poster on any given page would be shuffled around.  A user might end up with his/her own avatar or anyone else's on that page.  Silly.  I think it gave people a few cheap laughs.

We went out to Terre Haute to visit lissarenee's grandmother for lunch on Sunday.  It's always nice to see her.  When we got home, we emptied out our living room and dining room in preparation of getting new carpeting.

Meanwhile, Lissa took Gadget for her first annual exam.  It's hard to believe she's been here a year already.  She's healthy...maybe too healthy!  She's doubled her 6 lb. weight of last year ringing in at 11.9 lbs.  So, like Widget, now she's on a diet, too. :)

Moving on to Wednesday...here's one of those things that you might think was an April Fools joke, but I swear it's true!

I auditioned for a production of Jesus Christ Superstar.  When I told my dad I was going to audition he said, "I didn't know you sang."  My reply was, "Neither did I."

Thursday brought something else that some might think was an April Fools joke.  Lissa and I welcomed a dog into our home.

She's a terrier mix about a year and a half old.  She's been at the Hamilton County Humane Society for the past couple months since her owner passed away.  Her name is Belle.

I had a haircut scheduled for Friday after work.  I decided to go back to basics...

After a couple years away, I have returned to basic black.  I enjoyed my tour across the spectrum, but I like being back in black. :)
