The election is finally over. Yeah, it was last week, but whatever. 2 years of campaigning comes to an end. I’m glad McCain didn’t win, but I don’t have the same elated feelings that others have about Obama.
The holidays are upon us. This year is going to be difficult. It’s been about 6 weeks since my mom passed away, but I’m not even close to coming to terms with the whole ordeal. Not sure what this time will bring or what the best course of action is going to be.
I’m really enjoying working at Trader Joe’s. Every time I’m there, I get more excited about the work I’m doing. It’s very physical labor, but at the same time, I am happy when I’m there and time flies. Totally fun and engaging work – isn’t that what we all look for?
Been trying to keep up with Wii Fit. It’s not easy. 15-30 minutes a day is hard to put together oddly. Our days are so packed full of shit that I have difficulty finding 30 minutes to work out. It’s a shame. However, Wii Fit is an incredible game – it makes exercise fun and competitive, which is something all of us can use. The success of The Biggest Loser on NBC should show us that competition is good when it comes to losing weight and being healthy.
Some music I’ve been into lately: Parliament, Metal Fingers (MF Doom), Girl Talk, Black Kids, TV on the Radio, Ike and Tina, Dudley Perkins, Quasimoto, Meiko Kaji, The Cramps, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, The Who and The Velvet Underground.
Going to Ann Arbor tomorrow to see Christopher. Should be fun. Don’t know where we’ll go to eat. Krazy Jim’s? Zingerman’s? Ashley’s? All would be wonderful or maybe we’ll find some place new…
