A Good Day

  • After 2 1/2 years, decided on a license plate.
  • Got to sleep in a bit after several 2-3 hour nights this week.
  • Kids got new church and "wedding" clothes.
  • Got a soft & fuzzy ewe with lamb.
  • Wife (3w3, BoP33p ?) let me go fishing.
  • Sat next to the Shenandoah River (Thanks Tim!) for several hours with no sounds of "civilization."
  • Never did get to a beverage, but everything can't always be perfect.

All in all, pretty good, don't you think?

On The Outside, Looking Out

I don't know how it appears to others, but here's how I describe most of my life and my personal tastes. For a lot of my life, when I've had to make some decision about a direction to take, something new to try, what music to listen to, it seems that I've consciously chosen the option that I thought would be least popular. Not reprehensible; different. Just trying to come up with a unique combination. I've never felt that I fit in very good anywhere or with any particular group. So I would try to make sure that I couldn't fit in.
I don't know how sad that is; it's hard for me to objectively think about. Was it a desperate attempt by some kid to differentiate himself in a sea of conformity? Was it narcissism taken to an extreme? Have I changed yet? Am I trying to make it seem more important than it ever was? Just how fake am I? How can I ever even answer that one?
