My two favorite blogs are now 1. completely dead and 2. rarely updated. Bleh. Seems I am posting less these days as well. It used to be I would get home from work, do homework, socialize if the day called for it and then sit down and write. Now, the only thing on my plate is work. Being as I took the semester off, I seem to also be writing less for kicks. (Yes, blogging IS a kick, duh.)
The good thing is, I am DOING more. My current obsession is spending an hour and the Y a few time a week and flexing these huge guns in front of the mirrors they seem to feel the need to place EVERYWHERE. Honestly, my favorite part about working out is setting my iPod on random and hoping an excellent play list is formed by the gods of running.
Also, finding a house. Not necessarily for buying, If it has a yard and a washing machine, I will rent whatever. Funny story…I went to my banks website, clicked on the link for pre-approved home loans and filled in the blanks. I received a splendid message about how they would be in touch with me…
…two days later.
I get a call on the phone…from an old friend…who works for this major national bank and was randomly assigned to ME. When I say old friend, I mean someone who I knew (cheered for the boy when he played basketball) and no longer know, though is still in the same social circle of people I do know and there is no way I am going to call back and say, “Hey! Yes…I was looking to buy a house. Can you finance me for the cheapest foreclosure you can find!?” Why I have pride about this matter, I do not know. Also, he may not have recognized my name when he picked up my file off the top of the pile, it has been awhile…except my name is fairly unique. I could drag out the old yearbook and post a picture of him, tell him he’ famous and maybe he’d cut me a deal. Y’know…being on The Pilver and all, that can really boost your career.
Finally ladies and gentelmen: tomorrow U2’s new CD will be on the shelves. They are on Letterman every night this week. I am excited. Very rarely do I get jazzed about new releases in music. When I do, I feel the need to sit in solitude and listen to them while analyzing their entirety. And before all you hipsters spout off about how you lost interest in U2 when Bono looked in the mirror and saw Jesus, remember, they made some outstanding music.
