String Something Together

Yeah, it's been a while since I've really had the need/desire/urge to blog something. That usually means good things in the workplace. Lately, I've been sufficiently exhausted creatively, which usually translates into less need to write. That doesn't mean that things haven't happened lately, because, oh my, have they. Here's a few random snippets of what's taking up my time recently, or, some thoughts I've had.

We Close on June 10
First off, yes, I'm getting back into a house and we close on June 10 (as in a little over a week away). This January I finally paid off my credit cards and now I'm looking to sink my finances into something a little more substantial than just a savings account. Ashlee and I will be moving into Hyde Park and the house is nearly 100 years old. It's a bungalow located right across the street from Gillham Park and it came with two surprises — a darkroom and a printing press. Can you say sweetnuts?

Status Updates and Twitter
There was no question that I was a status update whore on Facebook (I even subscribed to the RSS feed so I could read ALL of my friends' updates whenever I wanted to). That addiction turned into a love for Twitter — yes, the site where you can find out who just ate a sandwich. I feel that Twitter is on the verge of becoming something much more than a glorified Facebook-like status aggregator, so I've been utilizing it for a while. We'll see what becomes of it.

Blueberry Yogurt Craze
We've been to the grocery store two times in the past two days, and both times we've witnessed people buying large amounts of blueberry yogurt. Nothing came to mind as to why such quantities were being purchased and a search on Google turned up zero results as well. What gives?

What's that Smell?
I've never experienced this, but does anyone ever get the urge to go number two when they enter a building that has a specific smell? I say it's weird, others disagree.

Sports Flashbacks
The Lakers and the Celtics are in the NBA Finals again after 21 years. The Royals are still sucky. NASCAR is still boring and golf is great napping material.

Mobile Emails
I'm now greatly entrenched into my iPod Phone and have set up an email address (because for whatever reason you can't send photos within text messages on iPhones). You can reach me at iphone [at] sethgunderson.com.

That's all I've got for now. I hope the summer isn't too hot for you, yet, since it's not really even summer. We'll get there. Oh yeah, Bad Movie Night starts up Tuesday!!! I'm hoping to view 10 stinkers this summer.

I still have never found any reason to use Twitter, just seems like one more hassle to have to keep track of. Have you missed out on all of the posts everywhere about the great Twitter meltdown?

Yes, I know all about Twitter's problems. I think this article sums it up best -- we're definitely in the Plan B phase of things.
