[ insert something witty here ]
Nothing really special about today. Was out late so didn’t make the gym. Loafed around most of the morning watching the tube.
Work was another story….Total ignunce!
I do have one rant though. It has to do w/politics. I normally keep that sort of stuff to myself but I get so annoyed at people sometimes. So today, chicky that works w/me is just bitching/whining up a storm about all the things wrong w/this country. So I ask her, “who did you vote for?”. Her classic response, “Oh, I don’t vote, it doesn’t count anyway”. I would have slapped her but I think shit splatters! I mean come on. You have the right to get your ass out and be counted in who gets to run this country. Sure its fucked sometimes but there are not many other places I’d rather live. I don’t care who you vote for, if you open your piehole to complain about it, you better be voting. Way I see it, if you aren’t part of the solution, you are part of the problem. So whats it gonna be? (ok, taking a valium …ahhh better now)
Ya know, my partner and I joke around a lot about what we’d do if we won the lotto. Today, I was thinking what would I really do if I won? The obvious, I’d pay off all my debt, my partners, and most of my closets friends. I’d buy a house or two in key places in the US that I like to visit. Then what? The next obvious…I’d give loads away to charity. (Notice the order that charity comes in) Its my blog so gotta be honest right? The more I thought about it, I seem to come up w/more things I wouldn’t do.
I wouldn’t buy a mansion or a house that would require more than 2 people to clean it. On that same note, I wouldn’t buy a house so big that I’d have to isolate myself from my neighbors. I wouldn’t buy more than 2 cars. I mean, how many cars does one really need? I’d probably settle on a hybrid truck and a nice sports car.
I wouldn’t try to go to every who’s who event in town. I’m just not that type of person. I’m very outgoing, spontaneous, and definitely know how to work a room. That said, I do it for pure interaction not so I can be seen.
I guess the point I’m trying to make is I wouldn’t change my life so much that I no longer connected with the world around me. Our interaction w/others is what teaches us and keeps us human. Call me silly, but thats what I’d do….
