Lagrange Park Holi-date!

Justin: Hello!  Winter is officially here!!!  We woke up Saturday morning to a beautiful yet cold white canvas just outside Nicole's apartment.

Nicole had sent me a link to this Hometown Holiday event in downtown Lagrange from 6 to 9pm where local shops were advertising their merch while giving out free cider and hot cocoa amongst other things.

They also had ice sculptures on the sidewalks and a smore tent complete with bonfire and giant toothpicks haha.

Downtown Lagrange always has these free events for the neighborhood and I can see why they have been voted Best Downtown for however odd number of years.  They really put quite the effort than most suburban downtown areas we've been too.  They even had a petting zoo complete with farm animals and hand sanitizer, haha.

There were a lot of cool things to walk around and take pictures of.  I think some of the highlights for me were the Smore tent and random ice sculptures placed through out the area.  Some shops had deals like 20% off and Nic got some information about "fun runs" heh.  I was glad we went because I felt crappy from all the sleep I took in.  So it was good to get some air and spend some QT together.

Around the time we were "just hanging out" I remember taking Nic to Downtown Lagrange when we were trying to find something to do other then watch movies and TV.  I took her to this area when they had just put their lights up and we drove through it looking at all the lights.  I don't think we got out of the car cause it was too cold and there were also other areas by my house where they had insane amounts of Christmas Decorations..who would've thunk (improper word usage noted) that we'd be back here but as a couple and that she'd be living around there too.  It's like I showed her our future...I'm awesome like that.

Nicole:  You are totally awesome!  I think you found your new profession ;o)

But seriously, I am beginning to love LaGrange more and more as I continue to live there.  There are so many events to attend throughout the year. Mostly free and usually unique things I haven't see anywhere else.  LaGrange Park definitely deserves the award for Best Downtown and I am so happy to be able to experience it!

When I saw that this event was occurring, I knew we had to go.  It sounded like a great time and was a good opportunity to explore some of the shops that I haven't had the chance to visit yet.  With Saturday being our first snow day, it was nice being able to walk around to the different shops and warm up inside with hot chocolate and cider while browsing around and finding things to not only add to my christmas list, but to buy for others as well.  The lights were pretty and there were carolers walking around to spread their good cheer.
My favorite parts of the evening were viewing the nativity scenes from around the world and making smores in the big bonfire area.  They warmed me from the inside and made me want to go camping.  More S'mores!

I'm so glad I got to share this with Justin and hopefully we can make this an annual outing.

an Unstoppable movie

Justin:  As you know every Friday night is Movie Night and yesterday was Nic's choice.  She went with the Denzel Washington Chris Pine runaway train thriller, Unstoppable.  Here's a synopsis from IMDB:

With an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train barreling toward a city, a veteran engineer and a young conductor race against the clock to prevent a catastrophe

Wow, this movie was superb!  A very tense and well written thriller was a nice change of pace for us.  A lot of action movies these days go even beyond the hyper realistic and this movie felt very real to me.  The term "blue collar" comes to mind.  I kept thinking this movie was "Speed" on a train but really it was its own beast, and that's a good thing.  I highly recommend checking this film out it's a great time at the movies.  And one of the best thrillers of the year.

Nicole, thoughts on your choice for the night?

Nicole:  Judging by the fingernail marks I left in Justin's arm, I'd say the movie was pretty intense. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, and I felt that it was a believable movie. I liked it a lot and I'd say this is a movie that I would see again.  That doesn't happen often for me, so I would take that as a good sign.  Go see this movie!

The List

Justin:  I thought this would be fun to share with everyone.  The list takes its cue from one of my all time favorite TV shows, Friends

The idea behind the list is the top 5 celebrities and personalities that our significant other would let us get it on with.  Now I have a hard time with this because I swap out people ALL the time and never really get "set" in my ways.  In other words I haven't pulled a "Ross" and laminated it.  I thought every now and then, Nic and I would share one of the five from our list.  Also I think it will help Nic flesh out the rest of hers cause I think she has 3 or 2 that I know of and it will help me in picking and making my choices final.

There's no rank in the list, just the order that we think of them.  So the first person that comes to mind for me is:

Tina Fey is smart, funny, dorky, and that's sexy to me.  She was the funniest person that was a part of Mean Girls.  When Saturday Night Live wasn't funny, it's Weekend Update with Tina and Jimmy was their saving grace.  After she left, she went on to 30 Rock, one of my favorite shows in the last 4 years.  It's that sort of awkward comfortableness she owns that makes it ok for you to laugh.  And a girl that makes me laugh goes on my list for sure. I want to go to there.

On to Nic's pick!

Mid Ohio Food

Justin:  Hi!  And how was the weekend for all of you?  This past weekend Nic and I attended the Mid Ohio Con in Columbus.  More on that nerdy goodness here.

The reason for the awesome post is: FOOD!

Since we got one of those fancy extended-stay type of hotels, we had a whole kitchen setup.  To save money instead of buying junk and eating crap [wait til we get to Sunday], we decided Saturday night to make dinner.

After the show we went to Kroger and picked up a few things.

We had crab cakes for appetizers and decided on making stuffed shells with spinach and ricotta cheese!

 I think I'll leave it up to Nic to tell you the process...I just stood there and looked pretty. [just kidding...I was sitting]

Nicole: While, we probably spent about the same amount of money buying our food, it was so much fun to make and have a real meal together!  We knew exactly what was in our food, we could adjust flavors to our exact liking and of course, we could make left overs for the next day!

The process was really easy, you cook some shells, make a little spinach and cheese mixture, stuff the shells after they have cooled and top them with sauce and bake in the oven.  Even though we didn't make the crab cakes, they were still very good, and I'm glad we decided to get them.  They were a great appetizer to stave our hunger as we waited for the shells to bake.  We also got a few Mediterranean salads to enjoy.  It was an overall great dinner and I'm glad we had a kitchen at our fingertips.

Justin: Hi again!  So didn't that look awesome?  It tasted awesome, for realsies.

Nic's friend, Melanie, told us about this hot dog joint in Columbus called Dirty Frank's.  Wait, me eat hot dogs?  It gets better, you can get any dog there vegetarian!

So for our "celebration" dinner on Sunday we decided to eat there and holy crap was it good.  I got to eat a chili dog for the first time in like three years.

Granted it wasn't a real hot dog, it was a veggie brat, and it was chili with no meat but damn, it tasted just like one!  I also had the Amy's Boston Dog, which was a hot dog with Boston baked beans, onions, and cheddar cheese.  We also split something called "Tater Tot-chos", which is nachos minus the "na" and replaced with "tots".  YUM!

I really dug the heck out of the place and it has character.  They even poke fun with some of the menu items.

Nicole:  When Melanie told me about Dirty Franks, I almost dismissed it right away because, hellooo, it's hot dogs, Justin can't eat there.  But my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to check out the menu and BOY was I glad I did!  There are soooo many different hot dog options to choose from, you could get almost any of them as a veggie dog and they also had veggie brat and italian sausage options as well.  After checking out the amazing menu, I knew we had to go and luckily, it was only about 5 minutes from the convention site.  It was amazing!  I would definitely love to go back there and try a few of their other dog choices and maybe some of their unique slushies as well.  If you are ever in the downtown Columbus area, I highly recommend this place!

Happy Halloween!!!

Justin: I hope you guys had a Happy Halloween yesterday!  Nic and I were at the Detroit Fanfare convention Halloween weekend so dressing up started a day early for the company we were amongst.  You can read more about my comic exploits here.  Check out these awesome costumes we saw:

On day two of the convention it was Halloween so kids and adults were dressed up and artist were even handing out candy.  Nic and I both got dressed up for the event.  Here's what we went as:

I had a great time this weekend, we even got to visit Nic's cousin in Ann Arbor the night before the Fanfare and had some awesome cupcakes and veggie friendly cuisine.

What was the experience like for her?  Well let's ask Nicole...

Nicole: Well, over all I enjoyed Detroit Fanfare!  It was awesome how many costumes there were and since it was Halloween weekend, I was more inclined to dress up myself.  I didn't feel the pressure to be dressed as a super hero or feel like people were judging me because I was dressed as Spongebob.  I actually got a few good compliments from it!  The Con was great though, it was very busy, the aisles were full, and it was in the hotel.  This proved to be great because since this was a smaller venue and I wasn't sitting at the table with Justin like I normally am, I was able to go up to our room at any time.  I was able to grab a nap during the day and catch up on my sleep.  I had a good time and the convention went so well that they are moving it to a larger location next year!

Friday in Ann Arbor was great!  I was officially the first relative on my side to visit my cousin in Ann Arbor and I would definitely say I would love to go back and visit!  There were so many different food places, along with lots of veggie friendly options and we capped the night off with amazing cupcakes and a few eps of The IT Crowd.  If you have never heard of The IT Crowd, you need to see it, NOW!  It is hilarious british humor and I can't wait to be caught up with all the seasons.

The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz

Justin:  Nicole's a big reader of books and I read comic books and graphic novels.  I thought this would be a fun new segment to discuss with each other and you fellow blog readers to get us to open up and challenge our literary tastes.  That way if she sees a graphic novel I like and posted about she might want to read that and vice versa. I told her once a long time ago that I wanted to read more books as a way to whet my appetite for writing my own stories.  In fact, one of the things we used to do when we were developing those feelings was we would read to each other.  We would each take a chapter or two and usually it would be a funny book or some kind of diary and read it to one another in bed.  IT was a great way to open up conversation and ultimately feel so comfortable with each other.  Also I dig the sound of her voice, especially when she would laugh.

I was never really a fan of Baum's tales of Oz until my favorite artist, Skottie Young was going to adapt it for Marvel Comics.  His take on the characters have been really inspiring and this adaption has made giant leaps forward into the realm of children's comics.

It is also the first graphic novel that Nicole ever read...and thus began her descent into geek-dom.  I thought this was a great way to introduce her to the graphic novel format because of its source material, easy to read panels and wonderful illustrations.

Here is the synopsis from Amazon:

The premiere American fantasy adventure gets the Merry Marvel treatment! Eisner Award-winning writer/artist Eric Shanower (Age of Bronze) teams up with fan-favorite artist Skottie Young (New X-Men) to bring L. Frank Baum's beloved classic to life! When Kansas farm girl Dorothy flies away to the magical Land of Oz, she fatally flattens a Wicked Witch, liberates a living Scarecrow and is hailed by the Munchkin people as a great sorceress...but all she really wants to know is: how does she get home? 

So that's my Read This pick for the month, week, day, what have you.  Hopefully Nic can share some of the books she recently read and we can get kind of our own little Oprah's Book Club going on here.  Happy Reading all!!

Nicole:  I love that Oz the first graphic novel I read, it was really good and made me want to explore other graphic novels and comics.

Justin mentioned that I am a reader of books and he's right.  In fact I am currently reading the whole Oz collection.  I'm about halfway through and I love it! There are so many short stories in the collection and it is really neat how they all intertwine with each other.  I am both excited and sad to finish the collection because I want to know know what happens but I don't want this amazing tale to end.

I look forward to the rest of the Oz graphic novels that are coming out as well :o)

We Like This: The Social Network

Justin:  I figured I'd talk about the weekend since it seems all I ever blog about is the movies we watch.  And Nicole blogs about the important stuff, like how romantic I am haha.

Nicole and I had a busy weekend...separate from each other.  She was playing mom this weekend.  Nic was off taking pictures for her younger sisters homecoming and hanging out with one of her good friends from college while I was stuffing my face and celebrating my sister-in-law's birthday.  Also Nic got a haircut and uhhhhh she looks amazing.  I probably told her that once.....every 5 minutes.

 On Sunday we got together to watch part of the 11th Annual Mustang Stampede at St. Rita High School.  We also ran into some old friends from high school, it was like being in band again.  Oh the..good...times?

In the evening we caught a showing of David Fincher's new film, The Social Network, which we both really dug.  If you live under a rock and don't know what this movie's about, it's the story of the people responsible for the rise of Facebook.   I won't get much more into it because that's the set up.  That's all you really need to know.  It's the facebook movie.  I honestly didn't know what to expect.  It wasn't funny or even dramatic but it was a character study of this unique persona, Mark Zuckerberg.  You don't dislike him, but you don't like him.  Its a very tug of war concept with how you view this character.  We both were pretty engaged in the story and admitted to watching it again.  I think the Oscar race has officially begun.  I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up seeing this at the AMC Best Picture Showcase come winter.  Go see this movie!

The Bank Job

The true story of a heist gone wrong... in all the right ways. 

Justin:  We are on a bit of a cops and robbers kick as last week was, The Town and last night's movie was The Bank Job.

Here's a synopsis from IMDB:  Martine offers Terry a lead on a foolproof bank hit on London's Baker Street. She targets a roomful of safe deposit boxes worth millions in cash and jewelry. But Terry and his crew don't realize the boxes also contain a treasure trove of dirty secrets - secrets that will thrust them into a deadly web of corruption and illicit scandal.

I think Nicole enjoyed the film and when I saw this in theaters I thought it was such a well done movie.  Some times interweaving plot lines and character arcs get messy and complicated but this movie tells the story from all angles but manages to keep it together and not fold under itself.  I highly recommend this movie.  Another thing I loved about this movie was the film's poster.  It's sets the tone and look that the film was going for, tense and polished.

So Fresh for SoFly

Nicole:  So I started a new job this week and I have to say it's so different from my old job, in a very good way.  It has actually been kind of weird because I am so used to the crazy chaotic mess of the old job and this is very calm and relaxed, its so so different.

I know this is my first week but I feel like I have a good handle on what I have learned so far.  They will slowly be adding tasks for me and I will be taking on more work and I'd have to say I'm pretty darn excited about it!  Everyone is friendly, my boss is great, and I don't feel stressed which was a major issue with the old job because it was making me grumpy and not fun.

The best part about this new job though happened on the very first day.  Actually, I was on my way to work when it happened so it made the rest of the day that much better.  I was headed out to my car, opened the door and saw these!

 with a very sweet card from Justin :o)


It was Awesome!  A great way to start my day, he's always so thoughtful.
And I am truly blessed  :o)

Justin:  THIS JUST-IN:  I'm awesome!  I'm blessed too!!!!  I'm very proud of Nicole for finding a new job.  Something she's wanted for a while.  I've always told her she's capable of anything and getting this slick new job just proves how amazing she is.  Good job love!

A Night in The Town

Justin:  Like I previously mentioned in another post, we really wanted to see Ben Affleck's new film, The Town.  Here's the imdb synopsis:
Welcome to the bank robbery capital of America. 
As he plans his next job, a longtime thief tries to balance his feelings for a bank manager connected to one of his earlier heists, as well as the FBI agent looking to bring him and his crew down
We both really dug the movie.  I think I liked it more than Nic though, as I'm down for multiple viewings and she's more of a one time viewer.  It's good to see Affleck grow as a director and I'm looking forward to his future efforts.  It had a good balance of action and drama and was really well paced.  Jeremy Renner was the shit.  The "Nun Mask" heist was really fun to watch.  Any thoughts Nic?

Nicole: Like you said, I'm generally a one time viewer.  I am really glad I saw it, but probably wont watch it again.  I don't really think the trailer portrayed it for what it was though.

I'm not really the best movie reviewer as I don't watch that many movies, as Justin has pointed out, but I did enjoy the action.
 Good times at the movies.  We'll see ya next week!

Wanna watch a movie?

Justin:  I had previously stated how important watching movies have been to us.  Other than being awesome, "going to see a movie" was my move.  I didn't have much luck with the ladies all throughout high school and college.  I think it was because, at that time, my interests in anything social we're lacking.  Clubs, parties, club-parties, were all non-enjoyable to me and movies were fun because it didn't bother with all that awkward socializing.

With Nicole it was different.  However, the first thing we did together was tour Downtown Chicago, which I never did and she was an expert at.  At the time I had yet seen the Cloud Gate a.k.a The Bean and well I felt like doing some picture taking and when Facebook became available to the public I found myself reconnecting with old high school people on the world wide web.

After that first day, which maybe Nic can elaborate for you more.

Nicole:  Call me lame, but just reading Justin's post about the movie nights makes me smile.  The sweetness, funniness and lameness.  It all made me smile.  K, no more mush.

Soo our first hang out day since high school.  We like to call it Sunday in the City.

Facebook was getting all popular and people were reconnecting and being friends with everyone and their mother that they had met for 2 seconds or had known but were'nt really friends with.

I talked to Justin in high school and was friendly with him but I wouldn't say we were exactly friends, he was pretty quiet and kinda goofy.  I mean, the only two things I really remember about him from high school were us making fun of my cheesy smile and him telling me that my armpits and my crotch were the two warmest parts of my body.

So back to Sunday in the City.  We started chatting because of facebook and I had found out he had never been downtown to the Bean and I worked literally across the street at the time.  It was a must, we were going, whether he liked it or not. 

So we were going to take the El downtown and since I lived close by we were meeting at my house.  He shows up on that 60 degree rainy day in shorts.  Shorts! and a tshirt, minus a jacket of any sort, or an umbrella. I look at him skeptically, make fun of him a little (ok, a lot) and we are on our way. 

So we get downtown and start walking around.  Justin's freezing but wont really admit it and we go around taking pictures and catching up.  He was so excited that I volunteered to be in pictures and was patient while he got artsy.

After a fun day of pictures and freezing we decided to go to corner bakery and warm up with some hot cocoa.  Justin bought mine and as we are sitting there chatting and answering questions from each other about our lives I remember thinking how I hoped he wasn't interested in me in more than a friendly way.

Well we head home and as we are chatting we realize that Justin's cousin and my sister are roommates in college and good friends.  I knew from that moment on we were destined to be in each others lives in some way.
Justin:  These were clearly ingredients for a solid friendship stewing.

So when we would hang out, most times we'd go to the movies.  It was what I was good at.  We'd talk a little on the way there and then talk about how awesome or bad the movie was at dinner or on the drive back.  It was, to me, genius set up.

As the friendship grew and the feelings began to surface, we moved the movie watching to the downstairs of my parents' house.  My dad had a projector and we would watch movies projected on the wall while chillin' on the couch.  So it was like being in the theater but we were the only audience.  The best part about that was: No arm rests...(BLOG POST FIVE!)

Ok now some nights, through no fault of my own, the dvd player downstairs would flip out and skip the disc.  I would suggest finishing the movie in my room....and at this time I still had a bed.  I would emphasize that in hopes that she wouldn't think I was trying to get her into my bed and I scratched the crap out of the disc before she got there.

One particular night, we were watching the Michael J. Fox classic, The Frighteners, which she would on occasion forget the name and call it The Firefighters.  (She's cute like that)  The disc had started skipping downstairs and I suggested finishing the movie in my room.  There we were laying in my bed. I kept a safe distance because I was nervous I might do or say something out of sheer awkwardness to send her screaming out the door.  BUT I never had any intentions like "Oh man, I'm going to score" because I'm not that kind of guy and I didn't think she liked me like that.

What happens next?  She falls asleep during the last 20 minutes of the movie!  I was like, uhhhhh what?  How could you fall asleep during The Frighteners?!  I wasn't outraged at all really because she kind of fell asleep on me...and well that was awesome!  I didn't know what to do so I just let her sleep til she woke up. And when she woke up she apologized for missing the movie and went right back to sleep.  Now I remember turning off the T.V. and just letting her sleep and I just kind of laid there and seriously thought how AWESOME this was but not to make any sudden self-celebration gestures so I didn't wake her up.  I think it was like 2 or 3am when she woke up and just kind of hugged goodbye and that was it.  It was a general stepping stone.  It gave me the notion that this friendship COULD go somewhere.  I didn't want to push it so I just let it be and took it for what it was.  I didn't want to amp myself up but it got me thinking about her and that was never a bad thing.  I was liking this girl more and more.

One of the other memorable movie nights we had was when we watched Superbad...but I think I'll leave that story for another time. Because this was just the beginning of it all and I again emphasize movies being very important to the forming of our relationship, til next time!

Actin' like Grown Ups

NicoleSo we had a pretty awesome weekend I'd say.  We both got to take Friday off for a wedding.  And taking off a day of work from either of our jobs is awesome on it's own.  The reception was great, it was pretty, the food was really freaking good and I got to dance with an awesome dance partner, and Justin's a pretty good dancer too, haha, just kidding.  He dances just as crazy and goofy as I do so I know I look crazy, but I'm not doing it alone.

And on to the important stuff....Movie Review!

JustinI originally wrote this long intro into what Movie Nights meant for us and how important they were to the beginnings of our relationship.  I decided to ditch it and give it it's own separate post for  another time.  For our movie nights, we usually watch the movies from our collection...which is really my collection. Nicole hasn't really seen a lot of the films I own.  Its a plus too, because we're not dropping 20 bucks to catch some 3D piece of crap (I'm talking to you Avatar) and we can do a little bit of saving on our part.  Also, when we became "official" we started doing more couple-ly things and movie nights at home got lost in the shuffle a bit.  Which isn't bad but we both feel we kind of miss those days of staying in and cozying up to the warmth of each other.

THAT being said, if we're feelin' a bit crafty, will hit up the show for something we both REALLY want to see (The Town), or we'll take in a show at the cheap theater.  Since we had a good weekend, we decided to treat ourselves to a showing of Grown Ups.

Here's a quick synopsis from IMDB: After their high school basketball coach passes away, five good friends and former teammates reunite for a Fourth of July holiday weekend.

There's something about Adam Sandler movies that when viewed at the right time,  are really funny.  I think this hit the right spot on our funny bones that night because we were coming off a nice weekend.  That being said, the film's just ok.  I think it's not as funny as some of his other films and you'd think with a stellar comedy cast you'd play to their strengths, but in that department the film came up short.  They made good use of Scheinder and Spade...I don't know if that's good or bad.  You be the judge.

Editor's note - We'll keep these reviews short as to not drag on and on and on, but basically we liked it. Haha

Shrek The Musical, the date!

Justin:  So the way this'll go is that some days you'll get a post from just Nicole or you'll get a post just from me.  And if we feel like it, which will probably be all the time, we'll both chime in on a post that the other one has done. (did you get lost? haha)


When we first started dating, we thought it would be cute if we "named" our most epic of dates as if it were a sitcom.  (more on that as we take a look back and forward through the course of filling this blog up with our silliness)

So on this date, it was my first time seeing a big broad way production and what better way then with a musical based on the hit animated film, Shrek.

I think we both agreed it was a blast and I found myself laughing loudly throughout, which you wouldn't think to do at stage theater BUT it was also a kid friendly show and there were tons of kids laughing along with us.  There's something to be said about songs that can work fart and burp jokes into the lyrics.

So if the show is playing somewhere by you, go out and check out Shrek The Musical!  It's good times.

This is the Start of Something Good

Nicole:  Don't you agree?

In case you didn't get the reference, it's a Gavin DeGraw song lyric. Ohh do I love that music.


Hi!  We are Nicole and Justin and welcome to our blog.  We hope to have all sorts of things on here.  Not just random goings on in our lives, but podcasts, adventures, maybe a web comic.  Basically whatever we find interesting and entertaining.  We just hope you enjoy it too or at least get a laugh out of it!

Ok, well as you can see, I don't really know how to start this thing without sounding lame.  Maybe there is no way, but either way, here we go!

Justin:  Great intro girlfriend!  And I don't mean that in a *snaps fingers and *shakes neck kind of way.  I literally mean girlfriend.  Nicole is my girlfriend and it's awesome!  And she's awesom(er) for wanting to start a blog with me which is basically a love letter to each other....for you all to read! 

We want to talk about places we've been, thing's we done, people we've met, the things we love.  And since we love each other very much, we'll talk about that too.

Not to worry now, we won't get too romantic and sappy on here but we're not going to WILL happen and since you are reading our first post, we might as get some of that romantic sappy crap out of the way.

So why is the blog titled So Fresh and So Fly?  WELLLL before Nic and I started our "relationship" relationship, we had more of an email relationship and we would email each other at work talkin' all lovey dovey.  Most importantly we were at the point of falling in love and on email we felt we could be ourselves and express our emotions in a way we both found difficult to do in person.  So amongst one of 300 + (and counting) emails we wrote to each other.  I laid down this bit of geeky charm on her:

I'm picking up Zack And Miri Make A Porno tuesday and also Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist...that movie's really awesome.  You should come over Tuesday so we can watch them. Anyways I'll talk to you tonight. If we were a hip hop group..I'd be SoFresh and you of course my dear would be SoFly.  SoFresh n' SoFly! TTYL

How awesomely lame and sweet is that?!  A hip hop group...that was my go-to move to swoon her.  And it was so random and silly too.  But it was I right people? (*crickets crickets)  From then on, that SoFresh SoFly thing has stuck with us and when we decided to put a blog together it was the one name we both thought of that I guess, represented what we wanted this blog to be about.

So stick around and as my lovely other half stated, here we go!
