Man I've been for real slacking on my blog lately! What's up with that? I mean I've been keeping kind of busy at work, sure, but I should still make time to update. I think I'll try to do better about that. I think I also want to stop doing as many 'diary' entries as I've been doing lately. You know what I mean - those entries where I just talk about my weekend and shit like that. I kind of like writing them but I don't think they really say much. I think I could probably do better to put some actual content on here. That's my plan, anyway. We'll see how well it plays out.

I do have to tell you that I went back to Birmingham this weekend and saw my nephew who is effin' tiny and adorable. I also don't think I'll be seeing Date Girl again after this past weekend. I will likely expound upon that in a later post. I also drank like a fish.

I still haven't seen The Watchmen yet. I know, right! What's my deal? I'm going to try to go tonight or sometime later this week. Speaking of later this week I'm going to be having dinner with Ari and Heather Rose and I'm totally stoked about it. We'll be having German food at Ol' Heidelberg. Tasty!

Bob Dylan is one of my favorite musicians. Lyrically he just can't be beat. I've talked about him before on here. He has a show on XM Radio called "Theme Time Radio Hour". Each episode has a different theme and Bob Dylan picks songs pertinent to the theme. Bob Dylan makes the playlist! When I heard about this show I considered subscribing to XM Radio. Just for that show. Seriously. Anyhow I do have Sirius Radio in my car and now that they've merged I could hear his show if I decided to go driving around every time it was on. I imagine that might get expensive. All that to say this: I found an online mp3 archive of all of the shows! How cool is that? It's all I've been listening to since I found it. Here's the link. Love on 'em a bit.

Lastly I'll say that this has been on my mind a lot lately. It's an article about why renting can be better than buying a house. I told myself when I moved here that I would rent for a year and then buy a house but, honestly, I don't think I want to. Not just because of this article, either. I don't like the idea of being tied to a property for 3 or 4 years before you can get out without a loss. How do you homeowners out there feel about this?

I've been slacking too. Just because I've been so darn busy.

Sorry about Date Girl.

You have to, man! It's almost perfect! And I'm still wondering what I'll be able to eat at this German joint. :P

Bob Dylan rocks! Watchmen has my favorite Bob Dylan song in it by the way. ^__^

I like owning rather than renting because: a) I'm an artist. I must have the freedom to paint whatever whenever, and bang holes in the walls if I wish. b) My gypsy family moved me around WAY TOO MUCH growing up. I want to stay put. So, for us-homeownership is good.

If you call the restaurant I bet they'd fax you a menu.

As for moving I can only say that I've moved ten times in the last ten years and I still don't know if I'd like to be stuck somewhere.
