Just checking in to let my three readers know that no, in spite of the silence, I ain't dead quite yet. So what has been going on in the world of Briliant donkey? A lot. And yet nothing at the same time. As you may(or may not) have heard Florida is in another 'Fire' year where half the state at some point or another seems to be on fire. Knock on wood, I have been fairly lucky as of yet. Other than a lot of smoke, and an occassional detour or evacuation(close to me but not affecting me), it has been more of an inconvenience than a danger. We DID finally get a good storm one night about a week ago. The picture above is of a rather large tree right beside my house that fell as a result. Again, no real harm. It destroyed the little shed/canopy and is laying directly across the tip of a boat trailer which was underneath the canopy. There won't be any fishing anytime soon but again it was actually pretty lucky. Had it fallen literally ANY other direction it would have taken out one of three houses. Instead, it fell directly between me and my neighbor and stopped just shy of another neighbors front porch. Like I said, inconvenient, but no danger.
I have finally taken a small step into the present. I actually gave in and finally bought me an Ipod. That new toy has taken up a fair amount of my time of late as well. I hadn't been much into music at all for the last several years(opting mostly to listen to AM sports talk radio) when I am in the car which is the only time I listen to the radio for the most part. I honestly don't recall the last CD I listened to much less actually bought(have almost never burned one) but I would be willing to bet it has been 3 years or more. Anyways, it has been neat uploading all my cd's to this thing and more or less re-discovering music. I had forgotten how awesome the likes of Pink floyd, The Steve miller band, Queensryche, Hank Jr and countless others are.
Other than that, I am just pretty much up to the same ole same ole(save for posting). Working, looking for a new place to live closer to Biffy, and sleeping have taken up most of my time. However, I am not dead. Then again, I may prefer that option to the thought of packing up all my shit and actually MOVING. Anyways, sorry for the lack of posting as of late. I WOULD say that I will get back into the habit of posting at some point, but see no need to threaten you all like that.
Till next time take it easy,
