Yes, yes…it’s been a long time my friends. Many things have happened since my last post: Obama was re-elected, LeBron finally got his ring and a reboot of the movie “Leprechaun” has been green lit (HECK YES!). My family is doing well, left my job of 7 years and am now working at my favorite neighborhood bar…that is just that, a bar. No chicken dingers, shrimp ploopers or Santa Fe basil thai wang-danglers…just a bar. It’s been a truly refreshing change of pace getting back to my roots.
Now that I am primarily working nights, that leaves me with lots of time during the day. So I’ll be spending my time writing for my lovely wife’s blog and relaunching Rick On The Rocks. I’ll be taking a little bit of a different direction…I’m just going to be writing about (Drumroll)…stuff! Lifestyle, travel, entertainment, being a Dad and whatever strikes me as cool. I figure it’s better than keeping creativity in a box…you can paint a larger picture if you have a larger canvas (some hipster kid told me that the other day as he was furiously trying to get his handle bar mustache just right). So, I hope everyone is ready! Rick On The Rocks will be making stops in New Orleans, Spain, France, Italy and Croatia (I hear tell there is lemon shandy there to die for).
I’ll try to keep this summer exciting for everyone involved. Some of you original readers remember my close, personal friend…Tom Cruise. I promised Tom that I would keep our personal stories out of the new incarnation of R.O.T.R. (Ours is a special love…you understand). So, I will respect his wishes. He’s probably to busy filming his next blockbuster to really care…”Jack Reacher 2: Jack’s Reacharound”. Coming soon to a theater near you!!
