I’m bumming right now because the other day I dropped one of my speakers I have hooked up to my laptop. It no longer feels the need to work. Anybody who knows me know that I spend so much of my time listening to music, it annoys me having music out of only one speaker. I guess I can add that product to my wish list. I guess I can’t complain too much since I got them for free anyway, still, bummer!
I’m sitting here, just got out of the shower, I’m waiting to go to Lindsay’s to watch the Blues game. It’s a must win tonight, if they lose, their season is over, something I don’t want to think about. At least they’re at home so that helps their chances greatly, I don’t want them to get swept! I’m not sure when Darin is picking me up, probably about 6:30, we’ll also be dog sitting her dog Max. She has to work till 8:30 so hopefully we keep him alive.
I’ve been twittering a lot lately. I know everybody else in the world is as well, but I haven’t just been posting. I’ve started following some people. Granted, many of them are musicians or actors, John Mayer, Dr. Drew and Mark Hoppus just to name a few. It’s cool to see just regular updates from people that doesn’t involve self promotion. Like you see real posts, not stuff like, hey go buy my album January 12th or something dumb like that. So it’s kind of my new addiction. I like that you can post to it via text, that’s nice as well. I need to find cooler things to post though, I mean, I can’t really top Mark Hoppus talking about a grown man chasing down an ice cream truck.
I also discovered the new tool that is “tinyurl.com.” This website let’s you take a web address that may be super long, and condenses it down dramatically. This has also turned into a great tool for Twitter users because now you can post links to your Twitter within a little message to go with it. It’s very easy too, good times for that.
I started a new audiobook today at work. It’s called “World War Z.” It’s basically about zombies that took over, and how humans had to take back the earth. It’s told on accounts of people who were involved though. It’s set at such a serious level though that sometimes I have to remember it’s fake. It’s really cool, plus Mark Hamill from Star Wars is a voice in it. This is by the same author as “The Zombie Survival Guide”, which is another great book I listened to.
I just thought I’d update a little bit, I’m really trying to get this blog a solid content foundation. I eventually want to start a personal website so I can post blogs, videos and whatever, but that’s another date and time. For now, I’ll just stick to good ol WordPress.
