Marni Goldman was a remarkable woman. I just went to her memorial service and was astounded by the incredible things she accomplished despite the hardships she faced all her life. It's funny, in some ways I think I wouldn't ever have gotten to know this side of her had she not passed away. But that was her way, it seems - understated but direct. She was the type of person whose life makes one feel silly for every having complained at all. I suppose the thing to do is to take on the challenge posed by her courage and bravery, and pay it forward.

I gots nuthin'.

Nothing interesting to say today. Well, i suppose it's possible none of this is interesting to others, so I suppose what I mean is, I don't really have anything to say that's interesting to me. Yes, that is what I mean. On the plus side, the weather's nice and sunny these days since returning from Europe. Eh-yep, about time to hit the ole' dusty trail...

getting locked out again

You know, I'm sure everyone goes through a phase of feeling like your mind is starting to go. I think mine definitely is, though - and at the young age of 28. Man, i managed to lock myself out of the house for like third time in as many months. Luckily Janet was still home, but I had to wait for her to get out of the shower before she could hear my calls or doorbell rings. I tells ya, maybe i need more stimulation or something. my brain r falling apart.

A little bit each day or so

It seems to me that I tend to want each entry here to mean something really substantial, or that I think i have to devote a ton of time to creating each one, so that it ends up being quite empty, as I never really have the time/energy to put anything into the blog. This is such a silly and obvious meta-blog-nition, and I'm sure everyone goes through this thought process at some point. Anyhow it's not like anyone's reading this thing anyway.

In other news, just got back from our trip in Europe, where we ended up doing a whole lot o' nuthin', and it was really good. Hung out with old friends, met a couple new ones, and generally just milled around in quaint dutch, belgian, german towns. Ate tons of frites, waffles, and other not-so-healthy stuff. Man, don't think I could eat like that all the time, but it's nice to splurge every once in a while. At least until you get nasty stomach aches the next day. That may have been a bit much. perhaps more on this later.
