I've downloaded and burned (thanks to a good friend who was way too sweet and gave me a gift account for my birthday @ AllofMp3 ) both a Damien Rice & David Garza CD for us to listen to (it's about a 2 Hour drive from here) given we are going to see them (and Fiona Apple) on Monday night. I'm not so sure about David Garza, he doesn't click with me yet, maybe after the show.
So I packed both my Video & Digital Cameras for this trip and plan on taking a ton of pics which I will post Sunday night. I love my Digital Camera, which has an automatic zoom and something like 4.5 Mega Pixel resolution. I haven't used it since last years London/Dublin trip except for self pics on occasion, I plan on getting some decent shots. Plus I'd love to get some new pics of the kids, they grow up way too quickly.
my love life (or lack therof)
well, since this last episode (which appears to be over.. no calls or emails since the other day) and after almost 2 months of casual dating I have come to the realization that I just might be ready to deal with the single thing long term. I mean for 3 years now I've been pretty much single, and in the back of my mind I was thinking how much I needed someone significant in my life.
Things change as we get older, recently dating became more of an inconvenience than fun. It's like I had things to do, plans, etc and going out to eat/movies/clubs/hanging out became a bit of a bother. Maybe it's me settling into old age hehe , I dunno. It might possibly also be that I had little interest in my most recent "friend" unless I had been drinking, which is always a bad sign. But I really think it's more of the former, that I have little time (or motivation) to cultivate something. I am just sick and tired of the energy/time involved in "getting to know" someone.
I remember back in 2000 when I met my most recent Ex (we lived together 3 years), I was so much more into it. The whole goosebumps/anticipation/constant calls etc was exiting and getting to know each other an emotional rush. How come it's not anymore? I've dated people the last couple years, I don't ever feel that way anymore, not even close.
What I feel like is that ok, time to screw around with my life and routine to work on something I don't even know if I want. Am I becoming selfish? Anti-Social? Who knows, but the next time I start feeling lonely and sad, I will re-read this post and maybe take a walk instead of hitting Chat or a Club. The grass is greener etc, it always seems like dating would be fun and gratifying until the time arrives and I'm like... I want to go running tonight, I don't have time to meet "so and so" for dinner at 7. Isn't that crazy?
I wonder if my life wasn't so full if this would be different, or maybe I have become a jaded man.
Crank Call Friday
enough depressing talk, I bet all my friends missed my Crank Call Friday clips right? (ok just say yes and humor me). Well last night I made a comedy CD for this kid I work with and was laughing my butt off over some of the clips on my PC I haven't heard in a while...ESPECIALLY this one.
Rosie O'Donnell is having a birthday...her publicist Terrance is looking to arrange something special. You just have to hear this, I love it. It's work safe too!
