(no there aren’t multiples of my fiance. luckily there’s only one and he’s mine :P)
Welcome to my stream of consciousness update. If I keep waiting to write the perfect entry I’ll never blog again.
The iPad. Name sucks. As Leo from Zen Habits said on twitter – “Important: the iPad is for consuming info, not for creating. It’ll help separate the two, which is wonderful for creators.” I don’t know about separating the two, but I don’t need an oversized iPhone when I already have the tiny one. If they get to the point where you can be more creative with it, use a stylus to take advantage of the tablet to sketch/use photoshop, then they’ll be getting somewhere. I’ll want one eventually of course.
State of the Union. Missed first part of it, I started off not very enthusiastic about it… He started promising huge things which made me question his ability to get them done, then he says if he fails it’s because we all failed. Niiiice. He’s the most human side I’ve seen in a president, and I really hope he/we CAN get all those things accomplished. I’ve been horrible about following politics since the election except for what Random tells me he heard on NPR. So I’m not really in a position to judge what’s going on but those are my thoughts on the speech. He really is a great motivational speaker and appealing to the humanity in us rather than party lines will – I hope – go a long way.
Snow. F that shit. I usually love it but today it pissed me off. The roads were horrible, and then Random was too busy at work to tell me he got there safely, so cue panic attack. Didn’t help that around the time the overactive imagination starts, my ears clogged up and hurt and I had no decongestants with me to help.
Health. I need to join a gym, at least until spring when we’re outside more. I HATE GYMS.
Weddings. I’m a bridesmaid in one that may be on TV. SEE ABOVE. (This is how much I love you M…. I would bail if I didn’t.) Ours – planning is coming along fine, just need to spend more time on not-fun stuff instead of playing with graphics for the website redesign and invites. Had another day of dress shopping, and I think I know where I’m going with that but not 100% sure…
Blogs. Gonna move the wedding blog from wordpress.com to hosting on godaddy.com and using wordpress the software. I know they mean well but really, the same name for both things is so farking complicated. But yay on full customization, and maybe I can move this blog there too. Oh yeah – go read the blog to see our awesome logo!
PEX. Doing the volunteer running yet again, and expanded duties to running a database of people who are available before and after for set up and clean up. They wanted it done Tuesday, except for 5 names I’ve emailed everyone twice and called them once. Still lots of no replies. I feel like I’m letting them down because I didn’t get to do much on it over the weekend, but I don’t know if anything would have been done if I wasn’t helping. (Oh yeah. Heartburn. Feb 13. Buy tickets NOW, they will sell out soon.)
Borderlands. Over the worst of my addiction since we completed the game once and the zombie island, still another downloadable content to get and I’m thinking tonight or tomorrow night would rock for that. Random wrote up a review of it.
Stuff. There’s so much going on, people I haven’t spoken to, things I should do…. and I still want to hibernate from it all. I do what needs to be done, mostly, but ugh. I know the pace will get worse and this year is gonna fly by, so I’m trying to just do what I can. I don’t do resolutions on the new year but I like the idea of a word for the year, the only one that came to me so far is PRESENCE. Being present in the moment. Yeah it looks like that’s an excellent focus point as it will be a challenge this year. Speaking of new years, holy fark where did January even go???
Tomorrow. Friday. THANK FARKING GODDESS.
* not as huge a BSG fan as much as I am a fan of the word fark and not actually swearing in public (as much). Especially with ankle biters around. There was that one time I was swearing up a storm in a supposedly empty parking lot only to turn around as a woman walked her three small kids right by me. Oops. And repeatedly saying MILD swears in front of M’s nephew. 😛
