What the hell is he doing here?

My name is Wes and I'm just the guy that does the thing. A mid-30s accountant who has reached his mid-life crisis early. Instead of buying a new car, I started a blog. I like beer, action movies, farmer's markets, going to bed early, getting up early, my wife, and my kid. This blog started as a tool to keep me on track in my goal to shed a few pounds. It has morphed into a place for me to write a bunch of nonsense.

Green Bean Conspiracy: What is that?

The name Green Bean Conspiracy was one of many fake band names I created in 2008. My friends and I went to see a band play at a local bar. The band, which I will not name (Lima Bean Riot), had a hilarious name and I kept trying to come up with other legume-related names. Green Bean Conspiracy was my favorite.

Getting by with a little help from my friends

From time to time, a friend of mine will take the risk of adding their name to a blog on this site. I couldn't do this without them. Thanks to everyone that has given a little bit of time and effort to allow the blog to grow.
