Reminiscing is not just an impossible word to spell, it's also can be a horrible horrible reminder of how much time you have been on this Earth and how little you have accomplished Sure, there are good times, but the more good times you've had...the more TIMES you've had and that can get pretty scary.
Case in point, I recently took to my photo archives for some ill advised reminisc-....remanis-...reflection, and I discovered an evolution that didn't really occur to me until I had seen it all in photo form. I often get kind of freaked out when standard events happen, like the fact that one of my best friends just turned 30, several of them are getting married and it's almost been 20 years since "Jurassic Park" came out. Seriously, what the fuck, time?! Why don't you relax a little bit?
It's gotten to the point that younger siblings of close friends are getting married...and it's weird...and scary...and kinda romantic but mostly the first two.
I don't want to make you use a bunch of your time "reading" things, so I'm just gonna do pictures for the rest of the post. Cool? Cool.
I realized that August 2011 marks the 1 Year Anniversary of the first "Irrational Fear of the Month". Hard to believe that twelve months ago I decided we knew each other well enough for me to open up and share with you some of the stupidest legitimate fears that I have. Much like it's hard to believe that the following "Era's of Bowmania" have come and gone and will never be coming back.
I hope you enjoy this nostalgic look at one of the most pointless existences in modern history...because I take no joy in it. It terrifies me....irrationally.

Many era's that came after the one above were lost to the harsh mistress of time and non digital photographs.Then...a lot of drinking happened and I got progressively less cute as the years went on.
That being the most recent one is a good place to stop. That was taken at a Wedding recently, which as amazing and fun as they can be, are also a harsh lesson that life is flying by, time is passing and you are going to be dead before you know it.
Wow, that actually took a pretty dark turn there. I don't want to go out on that note, so BOOM! PUPPY!
