I Now Pronounce You

Is It Christmas Yet?

Posted in Uncategorized by inowpronounceyou on December 12, 2007

I know I know, I’ve been totally AWOL…what can I say? Let’s just skip all the explanations and get to the post…

One week from today I’m heading to Baltimore for a one night stay in a hotel. Why one night? Because I’ve got an early flight up to New England the next morning. That’s right, I’m heading back to Maine to spend Christmas with Kid Brother and the INPY clan. Consequently, I’ve just got to fight through a few more days and POOF! I’m gone like Casper. I’ll be hangin’ with the family and giving out uber cool Xmas gifts. Remote Control Airplanes and Limited Edition Tickle Me Elmos. Oh yeah, that’s how Uncle Inpy rolls.

It’s been all over the place lately…I’ve been working like a mad man, as you know. Long hours, crazy highs and lows that come form getting thiiiiiiis close to a resolution in certain things and then having it yanked away, and cramming to get everything done before ’08. I’ve been trying to expand contracts and replace people that are quitting. I’ve been trying to make that one last push for the end of the year to finish on a high, and dark froces are conspiring against me!!!

Ahh, December.

Oh, and it’s my birthday Saturday. Happy Birthday to me and all that.

I have all kinds of things I want to write about. Mad topics. All kinds of the hot and heavy that usually shows up on these pages. And not just your standard 2007 recap sort of stuff. I mean, I’ve got real issues kickin’ around my cabeza that I need to GET OUT.

08. I promise to be a much better blogger in 08. Just hang in there with me.

Zen and the Art of Government Contracting

Posted in Uncategorized by inowpronounceyou on December 5, 2007

Lately I’ve been 100% in to my work, and very, very little else. See, I am the type that can literally fall in to work everything else just sort of…fades. Of late I’ve been getting in to the office at or before 8 and leaving at…well…8. And then getting home and doing “just a few more things”.

When I’m in this mode it’s like a hitter being in the zone. No matter what comes at me, I can deal with it. If I’m trying to get you onboard for a contract, no matter what your issue with working for me is, I’m going to not only tackle it but I’m going to have you desperate to get in the door. If you’re a PM and something goes wrong, no matter how pissed off you might be at me, I’m going to turn it around and not only make it right, but make you want to expand your contract. There’s nothing I can’t fix, sell, improve, sign or execute when I’m like this.

I dont’ get tired, no matter how many hours I’ve been going at it. Nor do I find myself discouraged, bored, wanting to be somewhere else, or needing a break. In fact, I hate it when something tears me away from what I’ve got going on…like appointments or a personal life. I get off on knowing that I’m making things happen. I love the fact that when my client sees my email saying “Problem Saolved” and notices the time stamp, that he’s hooked. That he knows that I’m the guy he’s gonna call when he needs something else, and that something else is goingto help grow my company.

I love this shit, kids. I really, really do.

So excuse me for not posting as much lately. It’s just that the meters runnin’ and I’ve got miles to go before I sleep.

’07 Season Finale Happy Hour

Posted in Uncategorized by inowpronounceyou on December 2, 2007

An entire season comes down to that one final episode. All of your questions are going to be answered…all the cliffhangers wrapped up with a bow…it is that most holy of the Holy and Revered;

The Season Finale.


There won’t be another Happy Hour for quite awhile. What with the Holidays, then the lull of January, it could well be that the next one we host will be a Cupid themed affair with those little heart candies and their pithy little messages. I mean, there will be other happy hours but, well, not a Blogger Happy Hosted by the now familiar but rather unusual suspects;

Arjewtino, Just Going With It, Kassy K, and Virgle Kent

Of course, as this is the season finale we had to do something really cool…really out there. And rather than take a page out of the neavou school and kill off a main character/host (NOT IT!) we decided to go retro 70’s old school hip and have a super cool guest star…

That’s right, we’re bringing out the most controversial yet uber cool you-love-to-hate-him blogger guest host/star we could think of;


So come to the 4P’s in Cleveland Park and celebrate the last Happy Hour of the year…and say good bye to 2007….and clebrate the birthdays of both Kassy K and I…and meet Roissy…and just generally have a great time with us as we look back on 2007 from our unique standpoint as DC bloggers!

If you’ve been putting off attending, this is the time to stop procrastinating. This is the one that we are going to all look around and say “Damn”…this is the one that we are going to be talking about in 6 months…this is the one that has the cliffhanger and the surprise hook ups and the big reveals and the “NO WAY!!!” moments.

This is the Season Finale.
