Goose Update Your Blog!

September 6th, 2009

So it’s been a while since I’ve updated the ole blog and lots of people have been complaining.  And since there has been at least some traffic still coming to the site I feel they are rather justified for a new post.  I get mixed complaints.  Some people want to know whats been going on in my life.  Others want more funny and angry rants.  I’d love to provide both.

And I would promise some ridiculous promise of how I’m going to give you an update once a week or once a day or whatever.  But we both know it won’t happen and it’ll only make me look like a wanker anyway.  I’m not one of those wankers.  But I can speak French.  In Russian.

Why has it been so hard to put up a simple little post saying “I got a cat!” or “Chicken makes me poo!”?  I have no idea.  I could do that.  But I’ve been playing with the googles, and the facebooks, and the twitters.  And it reminds me of the second greatest line from “He’s Just not that into You.”  Side note:  Who would of thought Drew Barrymore’s character left a memoriable quote?  But any way she says “And now you just have to go around checking all these different portals, just to get rejected by seven different technologies.  It’s exhausting.”

And that’s sort of how I’m feeling at this point.  Behind in keeping up and exhausted.  I am so far behind on my phone calls to people its crazy!  It’s with everything in my life right now, I feel like I’m one step behind at all times and I’m never able to catch up.  Now that generally isn’t a problem for me and my philosophy.  After all, I am the tortoise.

So now that we have all of the “Sorry for not posting, I promise to post more” bullshit we can get into an update about me.  After all that is what you’re here for.  Me.  You know, the important things in your life.  Well I’ve been biking a lot more this summer.  Getting better at it too.  I no longer look like a fat guy willing a bicycle to not move.  I’m really starting to enjoy it and looking to get more serious about.  I’ve started saving for a more road friendly bike.  Hooray!  People say I’m slimming down, but I don’t see it.  I suppose I wouldn’t.  I’d post those picture a day to see how much I’ve changed things, but my boobs are just not flattering.  I won’t lie.  But I’m working on that, and that’s what counts.

I bought my first tv this spring.  Hooray!  It’s interesting, I’m starting to get my own things now instead of just hand me downs and borrowed items, I’m actually getting my very own shinys.  Got a new desktop that’s so very very prettah.  I love it much.  Had some memories issues with it, but hopefully those have been taken care of (Fingers crossed.)  I got a brand new kittah!  His name is Steve the Pirate.  He isn’t shiny, but he’s awesome.  And a pirate.  Win win.

I went to my ten year high school reunion the beginning of the month.  I was really interested to go back and see all these friends I had from high school and blah blah blah.  As I was driving up to the D for it, I started remembering how I hung out with a large majority of people not in my class, and I started worrying.  Fortunately there were quite a few people there I knew, and a good time was had by all.  It was interesting to see how many people were still in the general area.

So I think that’s enough of an update for now.  Hit on the larger items of the last few months plus.  As for what’s coming up?  Football!  I am so pumped about college football this season.  I can not wait.  First big event is tailgating for OSU vs. USC.  Gonna be a sweet time.  Got a couple of new projects I’ve begun working on, as well as an older one I’ve started thinking about again.  Not ready to announce anything yet, still milling things over for them, once I’m more ready for them, I’ll be sure to let people know.  I’ll try to do my best about putting updates here.  No promises, I’m only a soulless asshole after all.  If we’re inbetween posts and you’re itching for a gooseneck update, be sure to pop over to the facebooks or the twitters.  Plenty of completely useless ramblings from me there.

So until next time, take care and funk on.
