Random Thoughts This Week

  1. I’ve almost reached a milestone on my Flickr site – almost 500 photos loaded.
  2. The last two weeks I’ve been slowly connecting with a few of my friends from high school and college. Like me almost all of them are fatter. Unlike me, almost all of them have kids; as many as four. Four kids!
  3. Found out this week that I didn’t get a call back for a second interview from a large PR agency here in town because, according to my headhunter, they found my experience “too specific” for their needs. Apparently experience with hi-tech, corporate affairs and consumer accounts is too specialized. Bite me.
  4. My friend Tom told me it took him 10 months to find a job he liked here. 10 months! Do I need to start applying to Starbucks??
  5. My dad confessed to me that in the early seventies he had an afro. So big, in fact, that his fro stuck out from his fireman’s helmet. I’m not sure how I feel about this revelation, but I am praying for photographic evidence.
  6. Portland isn’t that big of a town, yet three of my friends from there now live here in Chicago, and I think that’s a little weird.
  7. I had a dream last night where all the jars and cans in the kitchen cupboards were upside down, so I had to take everything out and restock them right-side up. What does that mean?

It means you recognize there is no order in your life and you want to put everything back in place.

I had a dream last night that my brother was wearing my new shirt. It didn't fit him and he was stretching it out but when I told him to take it off, he said no. He knew it didn't fit, he just liked to piss me off by wearing it.

What do you suppose that means?

Maybe I shouldn't share so much.
