Just A Quick Note...

Just what does it say about me that I actually get enthusiastic about getting my XBox360 replaced? Probably not much, and what it does say isn't very positive. However as that great philosopher Popeye once said, "I yam who I yam".

Actually things have been busy, but not in an insane way. My schedule at work is more human now, and I finally have time to start to do things the right way, as opposed to simply stringing things together in some half-assed way to just get by. I know, that's probably not a nice way to describe it, and if you find yourself overwhelmed, sometimes half-assed is a really good outcome. Anyway, things on the work front are slightly more manageable these days. A sign of the times is the fact that I don't have too many things on my schedule that I look at and think "My God, I hate that...". Now that isn't implying that some of the things I hate are things I don't do well; in fact, I know there are some things I truly hate that I actually do rather well, thank you very much. Regardless, it's tolerable these days.

On a completely different note, the song currently running through my head is Elton John's "Funeral for Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" from the album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. If you are a fan of Sir Elton and you don't have Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, then go out and get it. It's stands up as one of the best album's of it's day and certainly the best work he has ever done. Here's a typical review (and track information).

Well it's time to get to work. My middle daughter Korin, who is learning how to drive, usually takes the wheel for the trip in the morning. She is a good driver for a 16 year old, but I am an extremely bad passenger...not just for her, but for anyone.
