im not particularly sure how it started, but it seems that every offseason i end up writing an entry about things i like…im aware this list is really only pertinent to me, but perhaps, it could be a list of things you like too…
a few good reads
the white tiger
a long walk
in a sunburned country
*the notebook (while i may not have actually read this, it was recommended to me quite courteously by a fellow passenger on a post thanksgiving flight)
a handful of great songs
the avett brothers – i and love and you
gomez – see the world
alexi murdoch – the ragged sea
*povertyneck hillbillies – one night in new orleans (same flight, different fellow passenger, she was 8)
a favorite movie(s)
fantastic mr. fox
a tv show in the background
the office (bbc version if you don’t mind)
how it’s made
thanks for all the questions…
be back in a minute…
well, something like that at least…now that ive successfully completed another year of 3 edifice monte (with apartments in florida, st paul, and now charotte)..it’s officially the offseason once again..
and so, to those (two or three) of you who are still checking the blog, despite its 9 month recess, feel free to ask whatever questions you may have…ill get to back to you as quickly as possible (around steelers and penguins games of course)..
it didn’t explode. i just haven’t written in a while. and it isn’t because ive been too busy either. so now that’s cleared up.
was thinking today ( on my 9:30 pm to 4:30 am flight ) of all the
things that i like. mostly to combat the lots of things i didnt like
about being awake, and being on that plane. they werent big things
either. they were smaller things; things that i can recommend to you.
then they can be things you like too.
a well written book
– the elegance of the hedgehog
– city of thieves
– born to run
a new music bit (usually recommended by my older brother)
– alexi murdoch
– ben lee
a good tv show
– arrested development
– the twilight zone
a creative blog
now you have some good things too.
with a nod to dr. theodor seuss geisel, who lived the latter years of
his life right here in la jolla, and was a brilliant imaginarian…
my drive from pittsburgh to san diego spanned 5 cities and covered almost 4000 miles..and if you ever find yourself in the vicinity, these
are (just a few of) the things i suggest you see for your very own
God bless America (american gothic) statue- chicago, ill
a hundred miles of cornfields – lincoln, ne
the rocky mountains – denver, co
sandia peak – albuquerque, nm
grand canyon national park – arizona
la jolla shores beach, ca
so when you get a chance, go ahead and take a picture of your own..
amazingly, it appears that we have made it all the way back to the offseason..and this blog will commence operations accordingly..
as i did last year, i would like to extend an invitation to my main blog reader guy (or girl) to ask questions about whatever he or she would like to know about..and i’ll get to answering them in the most expedient fashion possible..that seems like the best plan for now..further plans will be made at a further date, furtherly.
after arriving in florida last weekend, and spending most of the week unpacking, grocery shopping, and catching up with teammates..it’s time to get started again.
unfortunately, this means the (offseason) blog will be offline for the next nine months or so. don’t worry though, ill be back as soon as the offseason is. thanks for keeping up, and in the meantime, check this blog out….caught in the middle.. it’s written by a good friend of mine from back home in pittsburgh about her travels through europe..and it’s awesome.
