Planning the fantasy; living the dream

I really must say that things all in all are pretty dang good. I’m flat broke, I’m about two shakes from leaving my job and finding something else, and school starts in about a month. Life is going well, really it is. I’m stressed, but not so much now, things are just floating along again, and that’s how I think I like them.
I spoke to Matt today, good things. Heh. He’s doing well and should be home for his R&R in about 7 weeks. I’m excited to see him and catch up on some “garage time”. He’s been talking to Ali a lot lately, so I think that’s keeping him sane. It’s good.
Erin and I had a great weekend really, for having a bad day, it went pretty well really. Friday we just chilled out, made a Papa Murphy’s pizza and just watched movies. Good things. Papa Murphy’s has great pizza, if there is one near you be sure to check it out.  On Saturday we started out going to the Butterfly Gardens in Indy at the Zoo. That didn’t happen, it looked like rain and I just don’t think that either one of us were really in the mood. We went to Broad Ripple and then over to the Fashion Mall, good things. The only thing I bought was a new shirt for church that night, since I had something on mine from lunch/breakfast/the day before. We got back to her house and crashed for a bit, then off to church. I’m kind of starting to like her church, but the sheer size of it is still a bit intimidating for me really. I’ll get used to it.
After that we headed to Street Dance. Quite possibly the coolest thing I’ve seen done in a smallish city in a long time. Kokomo has Ribfest, but I think this is better. We had fun, did a little dancing, ate a ton of food. Good things.
Yesterday was the first day of my boss being gone for 3-4 months at a contract site, this means that basically everything falls on me now. I’m the main point of contact for just about everything, it’s cool I guess to have the responsibility but I don’t’ know if I really want to have the stress and whatnot. We’ll see how it goes.
Tonight it’s off to the circus in Peru… Jake has a gig on the courthouse steps; Erin and I are heading up to see him and just chill for a bit… I gotta get back in my workout routine…
Anyways, time for lunch… catch you all later

Getting ready to leave…

It’s almost time to head to Indy but I felt like doing something so I’m in the library doing this blogging thing again. I went to my night class at 1130 this morning so I don’t’ have to go and now me and Kyle are going out to see Jeremy Hotz at Crackers in Broad Ripple. I saw this guy on Comedy Central once, truly a great comedian. Ehh… its one last hurrah before next week and Florida! We’re leaving in like 31 hours now. Going through Cincy this time cause it actually is about an hour shorter… cool with me.
That reminds me of something funny I heard once about people telling each other how far away stuff is. Some places like New York, tell you how many miles/blocks it is to someplace, not here in Indiana though, it’s hour many minutes/hours it is. Everyone knows it’s about 20 minutes to Kokomo from Peru; it’s about an hour to Indy, its 3 hours to Bloomington, etc. I have no idea how many miles it is to Bloomington but I do know if I leave at 9am I’ll get there pretty close to noon, depending on traffic. Traffic in Indiana is a bit of a different thing too, most people worry about traffic jams on interstates, we don’t’ have that, we have a combine driving down the middle of a narrow country road at 20mph. The only interstate to worry about in Indiana is 465, it’s like the Indy 500 all the time there, old ladies even flip you off for driving less than 10mph over the speed limit. Anyways I should go… later all…


Do you ever get in one of those moods where song lyrics really really speak to you? I’m in one of those moods right now. Here’s what I’ve got on my list lately, check them out for yourself, I don’t feel like posting them all here and filling this thing up.

  • Tool – The Patient
  • Evanescence – My Immortal
  • George Strait – Check Yes or No
  • Linkin Park – Numb

It’s nothing really exciting I guess, but I’ve heard these songs today and I must say that they all reached me in some way.
Anyways though, I’ve got some studying left to do and I need to get to bed, long day tomorrow, going to see Jeremy Hotz in Broad Ripple…
2 Days!
