On the topic of instruments, I'm really happy with my first guitar. The action is a bit high and the slots in the nut need to be filed out a little more, but the sound is wonderful and I really dig the wider fretboard and neck. It makes it feel more like a classical guitar and is more oaf friendly. Again, it ain't pretty but it does sound good.
Today, Stacky and The Dude are taking me to lunch. I will parade them around the office as proof that I have a family and some folks will be appeased. It's been a bad week at the office. The RIF-fairy visited. Not cool.
My weight is higher than I would like for it to be. I need to get back into a good exercise routine. Cycling in Houston isn't really doing it for me. I loath the idea of going back to the gym so I'm thinking that some free weights are probably my best bet. Not super stoked about it, but I need to get some strength training in. No, I do not want to be 70s big. I'd just like to shape up a bit.
My wife mentioned to me the other day that since we don't really eat meat anymore that I need to pick up a vitamin B complex of some sort. She told me this in between my new found bouts of narcolepsy. She also said something about fatigue, but I didn't hear it all because I was snoring. Never assume that a man is taking a multivitamin just because it is in the cupboard, kay?
Tonight we will likely finish Baldur's Gate II (courtesy of our local blockhead!). We played as a cleric and a necromancer. We focused our feats and took on the "buy a level" quests. As a result, we're way overpowered going into the end of this game. The last two bosses didn't do any damage to us, were killed on the first try, and the total encounter time was under two minutes. We're fucking badasses, yo. The hurt, she will be brought!
I'm reading Dos Passos for the first time. I'm so undereducated in the realm of literature. I've read a lot but there are huge holes. So I'm filling them. In passing, a friend of mine mentioned an iTunesU lecture series by some dude at Yale on Literary Theory. Because my podcasts were all used up I put one on for the sake of being able to say I tried it and so far I'm on the 4th lecture. It's really interesting stuff. I'm a little surprised, I guess. I mean, everyone knows it's fun to say "hermeneutics" but who knew talking about it would be interesting? I would venture to say that no one did.
"Let The Great World Spin" is a wonderful book but is so fucking depressing. It should be required reading but do not serve this book with alcohol. Really.
Easter dinner with the in-laws and my dad and stepmom. At our place. Go team.
Really tired this week. One more week until vacation.
