Why not punch out a post using my BlackBerry as I wait for the much anticipated 3.0 software release from Apple. It seems like the right thing to do. My iPod touch needs pampering.
How are you people? What is up? Is life treating you well these days? I have lost touch with some of you. I won’t make excuses about why. I will simply ask you to provide an honest update to your life. Don’t even think about bullshitting me because I will call your bluff. Are you good, bad, indifferent? Fretting about relationships, money, jobs, upgrading phones, or some cute capri pants. I want to hear it all.
Moi? I am fine, thanks for asking. Life remains busy, but is manageable… or so I tell myself. I’m happy to be working in the yard again. I’m amazed we haven’t had measurable rain in Seattle for 29 consecutive days. That means it hasn’t rained since before we left for Chicago last month. Quite remarkable. I say this because I’m watering more than one should in my city this time of year.
My brother and his two boys arrive in town next week. I haven’t seen him and the boys in five years or so. It will be fantastic for the cousins to meet. On another family note, my niece who seemed to be born a short while ago during a snowstorn (1990) graduated from high school. She will be the first of her siblings to go to a four year college. I’m proud of her since it hasn’t been an easy path for her. It sure does bring back intruing memories to watch someone graduate from college. I remember thinking how weird it was to be officially free from school. For a few months at least until college started and thus a new reality.
Finally, buy a Kindle. Well, only if your credit card can afford it. I got one for Mrs. Lessinges’ birthday and she digs the iPod of books. Granted it isn’t the most romantic gift, but it has been well received. Heck, I borrowed it and even read some articles “in” the newspaper about technology. This paragraph doesn’t fit the spirit of the post, however I felt compelled to brag about the Kindle. It’s very nifty and only cost slightly more than one payment towards college.
I’m alright. That’s what I’d say. I’m surviving, but not knocking them out of the park. Oh, my download is now complete. Adios!
