Its funny, over the last week I had so many little things come up that I thought I should blog about, but now that I am sitting here, none are comming to mind and unfortunetly it isn't like the buddist with the quiet mind, this is like the writer block with the quiet mind.. there is a big difference. I suppose I should fill in with events in the last week and maybe that will bring it out.. Last Sunday I went RollerSkating, I thoroughly enjoyed myself, when I walked in, I wasn't sure what to expect, although I don't beleive I have ever skated there, it still felt so familiar like a part of my childhood, I vivedly remember events in that rink, but I think my memories are from somewhere else.. I went there for Irish-girls Birthday which I thought it was a great idea to have the party there, I wonder how much a roller rink rents for for an evening, might be fun to do some sort of private event there.. anyway, it was really interesting, I didn't know many of the people invited and being the introvert that I am, at first, I was feeling very awkward not sure if I should skate or sit.. and then as the evening got going, I started talking to people (and I appologize because I can't remember anybodys names) and feeling more at home.. I love it when you get together with friends of friends and discover that the things you enjoy about your friends company expands to their circle of friends and family like you really do fit somehow and aren't just the odd one out. This weekend I managed to do some relaxing and some socializing, tonight I went and saw the Last Samari with Tom Cruise, I really enjoyed the movie, It really was an epic.. I watched some of the State of the Union Address, I think its funny when the president gives a speach have you ever noticed that he smirks before each paragraph, as if he is thinking one of 2 thoughts 1) they are going to love this next part, I'm going to win the crowd with this one. Or 2) I can't beleive that the American people are actually buying this crap. personally I believe the latter. I do not understand why that man hasn't bean impeached, it was such an outrage for our president to lie about an infidility, but its alright to lie about war.. I just don't understand our society.
Well, with all that said, I suppose I wrote something afterall, it isn't any of the earth shaking comments that I think i was thinking about as the thoughts were passing, but it was still something none the less.
Food Eaten: this last week I made Chili, Pasta, Shepards Pie, and Cheese Fondu
Music Listened to: Praga Kahn, Cherrie Blue, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, Love and Rockets, and Fischerspooner
Moral of the day (week) : there is nothing you can do to change the passage of time, but you can time the change of the passages.
Wow, can you beleive it, I certainly can't, 2 entries in like a week I'm not sure, but I think the world is freezing over, I know the east coast is, while we wallow in unseasonably warm weather and no snow.. The thing with the global warming that creaps me out is that like a billion years ago give or take a day (don't quote me on that) 90% of the species on earth were wiped out and it wasn't a big climate change.. it was 10˚ C and that was all it took, the really creapy thing is, archeologists were trying to figure out how the temperature changed so much, and they discovered that there is all this frozen methane on the bottom of the oceans, and when the oceans warmed just a couple of degrees this methane came exploding to the surface, and caused a huge change in climate.. I fear every day that that methane is going to thaw and then we are doomed.. Ok, enough with the light conversation on To the Heavy stuff,
On Sunday I went to Target center and saw David Bowie, He was awsomely Amazing. I thought it was funny, I read the Star Tribune review and they started off talking about how every other tour has bean such a huge production and all, all I can comment on is seeing him Sunday and seeing him back in 1997, Neither show was a huge production and the show last sunday was by far a much bigger production.. That aside, I hope I look that good when I am 60, I know he's only 57 but still thats almost 60.. either way, I know that won't happen, I don't think I look that good now... anyway, back to the music, Macy Gray opened the concert and put on what I thought was a solid performance, I was a little dis-interested, but enjoyed her set, I thought it was interesting how she blended so many things together into one song/medly sort of thing, That she really didn't play any of her songs, but sort of hinted at them was what I thought made it most interesting, and I couldn't help but stare at her Giant Hair. After that, David Bowie took the stage. He opened with Rebel Rebel and played a wonderful mix of old and new and Eclectic and popular, It looked like he was truely enjoying himself on stage and it was obvious that that band and he have a good repore, the way they were able to shake things up and when David Bowie decided to add a song at the last minute they were able to just jump in and play it was wonderful, he had some fun banter with the crowd pointing out a person wearing a furry winter hat in the front row and a woman in a short mini skirt way up in the back row of the side bleachers.. my only dissapointment was the crowd around where I was sitting were so not into it, I knew I was doomed when the woman in front of me that came in with the fur coat and very banker looking husband and friends, then the kids next to me that their parents brought obviously to give them a cultural expierence and they really dind't want to be there either, at least that was what I took from it..too bad, at some point they will realize how cool it was that they saw bowie.. thats how I felt
Anyway, I'm writing a Jack length entry so I will stop there.
Food Eaten: Funky Asian stir fried noodles with Asparagus and bean sprouts
Music Listened to: David Bowie (something about a live performance that brings out a different enjoyment of music) Love and Rockets, The Cure
Moral of the Day: Patiently Waiting does not necessarily bring Waiters Patiently.
well, I guess I am getting down to monthly entries.. my new years resolution should be to try to write in here more, I mean I do have a website, I might as well use it, although I have posted pictures for family and friends so that must account for something, I have also bean getting quite a kick out of reading what some people have bean writing on my site. I am finding it really interesting (mostly) to go and see what of my old posts have bean hit and commented on, A big thanks goes to those who think its cool to try to link my site to adult sites, you know, if you are going to use my site for marketing, pay me for it.. which leads me to my thought on preventing spam, all business that advertise should be forced to use in the subject line a code work so if you are selling encyclopedias via the internet your company would be forced to use something like book as the first word in the subject or adult or travel or some code like that, something fairly broad, and yet narrow, then it would be very easy for a user to have a spam filter that works, if you were to send out spam without this tag, then legal action could be taken, then the spammers freedom of speach is protected and my right to not have offers stating that my manhood is too small is also protected, everybody wins, you could then go in and choose users that you will accept mail from so if I want to recieve mails from the church of innie bellybuttons (code word religion ip address 22.214.171.124) I could while yet still filter out spam from the Church of the Holy pocket (also code word religion)
anyway, I have ranted plenty good, and here I bet you were expecting to hear about my holidays which were wonderful, spending Christmas with my whole famly including my Grandmother was fantabulous, I fear that this may have bean the last one, her health isn't doing very well but what a wonderful memory, I truely do feel blessed about that.. New Years who can ask for better then time with friends and having some of my best friends make me breakfast and treat me to what has bean one of the most relaxing days I have had in years... Thank you all..

Moral of the Day: Beware the ides of march are slipping and appear to be in Feburary
