Step out of hiding for a minute. It’s an interesting week here. Not dramatic, not bad exactly, ..maybe good in a potentially job-well-done sort of way.
Still, seems a good idea to keep my web presence somewhat active so this place doesn’t turn into a ghost town.
Norm, for a generous offer to listen that I’ll probably take up and something you said which struck me- the gist was: You get out of the process what you put into it. So go ahead and immerse yourself in that.
Creative weebles might want to throw down some Haiku over at Mad’s joint. He’s got a daisy-chain challenge, and all it costs you is 17 syllables.
And- I’d like you all to meet Rao. I’m pretty fearless about dubbing new blog-pals weebles, but I’m not sure he’d let me call him that. Rao is a friend… from long ago… from my high school days! We connected again thanks to the magic of the internet.
It’s hard not to call him by his real name, actually, such is the power of his personality; but- by means of introduction, ‘Rao’ happens to be the person I spent the day with the one and only time I played *real* hooky from highschool. (Senior year it wasn’t uncommon to skip a couple periods at the end of the day, or even the whole afternoon, but I always went to go get my checkmark for attendance in the morning.)
If memory serves me right… we ended up talking about nothing and everything, watching bad t.v. and playing the boardgame ‘LIFE’. And I explained to Rao, who was the only friend I had at that time who would have understood, why I didn’t choose to involve my boyfriend in the whole skipping school scheme…
I kinda needed a little break from that intensity.
Yup. I remember that day really well. Kinda cool that he’s writing now, and he’s writing some great stuff, so go say hello at his site if you get the chance.
I’m thrashed, so that’s all for the time being.
Beat the odds, and enjoy your Tuesday.
