Can't Put A Good Book Down

I sit alone everyday you know, sitting on the stairwell eating my lunch, reading a book. What about you?

Just for the hell of it note: I crushing on a certain Russian skater. Not 100% sure why, but the legs could have something to do with it.

I Didn't Do Shit This Weekend...

You know how I know this? About 5 minutes ago I was trying to think of what I did this weekend, and all I could remember was washing dishes and doing my laundry. Sad. I can't even remember if I left the house.

Want Excitement??? I Watched the Grammys then Went to Sleep.

Pathetic. I coulda/woulda/shoulda done ANYTHING else. Not that the Grammys were bad, but criminey, how old am I?!?!

To top it all off, I just read that Barry Manilow has the #1 album in the country. That's 29 years between #1 records. And he outsold Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx, and Eminem.

That's almost as impressive as Kelly Clarkson beating Paul McCartney, Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow, and Gwen Stefani for Best Pop Vocal Album.

While I'm Shooting Random Tidbits...

Round 2:

Today is Normal Rockwell's birthday (according to my HPB calendar). Ever wish you were back in Norman's times? When life was simpler, moved slower, and things rarely changed. Sometimes I do. Sometimes. Then I think how sexually repressed they were and wipe that thought out of my head ASAP.

I started a new painting last night. I want it to be an abstract. I thought I had an idea of where I wanted it to go, then I made a sharp left turn. Right now, it's floating in limbo. It's almost done, but I can't figure out what's missing. It needs something else. Any thoughts? (it's abstract, therefore your thoughts are as good as mine)

I need a haircut. I'll probably do that tomorrow. Just don't know what kind of cut to get. I'm looking pretty ratty these days. Any suggestions? I was thinking short and spiky, but I'm not so sure about that. Considering just getting a trim and waiting for the long-haired pony tail thing to grow in. Which leads me to my next point....

I've been feeling very bohemian lately. Painting, acoustic music, dabbling with a beard (which btw was a HUGE mistake that I remedied this morning), etc. Feeling very earthy these days. Whole Foods shopping - check. Candles/incense - check. I think I'm just trying to find myself (again). Hell, even the celibacy qualifies here. (although that's the part that I'm not so sure about)

And last but not least, the Super Bowl. Should be a good game. Good Lord, I hope it's a good game. I'm betting on Pittsburgh, but Seattle could pull one out. Really I don't care who wins. I just hope it stays close.

That's all folks. I must get back to the grind.

Just 'Cause My Eyes Are Crossing From Work...

I'm not going to give you any interesting news here. I just needed a break.

I'll title this section "Things in My Head":

I have no idea about the groundhog. It's in the damn 70's this week so if he's predicting more winter, my question is "Does that mean it's gonna get here???"

I'm listening to Uncle Tupelo's cover of Waylon Jennings' "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way?" I'm stuck in a UT rut. Not that it's a bad place to be. It's just a rut. If I start an alt-country band, will y'all come out to see me?

I love this movie quote: "I was born when she kissed me. I died when she left me. I lived a few weeks while she loved me." If you know the movie (w/o cheating), I think I love you.

Today is James Joyce's birthday (according to my HPB calendar). I think everyone should read "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" at least once. For no other reason than it's a fantastic read.

That's all. Maybe more nuggets later.
