Fallen Trees and Bacon

This is how my morning started.
Owning the best photo booth company in the world has it’s perks but it also has it’s shortcomings. One of them is not getting a lot of sleep. I just got back to our Louisville office a couple days ago but I have been working super long hours which doesn’t help me adjust back to east coast time. Last night I left the office in the wee hours of the morning with the hopes of sleeping till about 9 or 10am. Then it happened.
Boom! I was abruptly woken up after only a couple hours of sleep by the loudest rumbling crash boom bang (anyone catch the early 90′s Roxette album reference?) that I have ever experienced. I thought the house was going to collapse down on top of me. Instantly I was wide awake and I started to survey the damage. A massive tree from the neighbors yard had fallen directly on top of where I sleep. Amazingly the roof held but most of the gutters and some windows did not. My depleted and sleep deprived mind and body initially fueled by the rush of shock adrenaline started to slowly drain until I finally realized that I had been standing out in the rain for 20 minutes just staring at the falling tree. I crawled back through the window to get back into my apartment and realizing that I would probably not be able to fall back asleep I decided that a cold shower would probably be my best bet of surviving the long day that lies ahead. Luckily the the landlord gets to handle the insurance battle with the neighbor over who gets to pay for all the damage.
Now the day is half over and I decided to share this story on our blog. Why not. To make it somewhat relevant to the world of Magbooth, here are some pics from the last week or so.
When traveling – always stay at a hotel that has a photo booth in the lobby and don’t forget toothpaste and delicious Toffifay.
My cute ass nephew. He just turned 2 last week and is already planning to take over the family photo booth business some day.
This weekend I went to the Bacon Ball and tried way to many things that probably shouldn’t have bacon in them.
