Riding a bike

Wow, how do you do this again? I really should be writing in here more often, for starters I have a damn permanent account, so I should be taking advantage of it. There's also a lot of stuff going on that I'd probably enjoy looking back on. Serafina being born, Bella being born, Rex starting preschool, all of these milestones and more. I really need to get a video camera as well, time's flying by, everyone will be grown up before I know it. "Smalls" is already going to be eleven weeks old tomorrow, I'm telling you...

Let's see, school's been going okay, but it's going to take me longer than I'd like. It's like Melissa says though, it's not like I'm doing anything else. I just feel like it's going to suck to be in my mid-thirties and starting a new career. I don't know. Maybe I'll win the lottery before then. (Fat chance of that happening since I don't even play.) That's something I could be writing about as well, Northeastern and my experiences there, eh, what are you going to do? The truth is I'm hella busy most of the time anyway. Homework, Serafina, life keeps on going.

I'm kind of bummed out that I'm missing Local H tonight. I've already missed them plenty of times this year, if my math is correct I think I've only since them once this year, and it blows. I'm pretty sure I've been to every new record release since Pack Up the Cats. Life goes on. I know a lot of people don't go anymore, I remember running into everyone at the shows, but it seems people have other priorities now. It's sad, you can't have it or do it all, and I'm happy with my life at the moment, but it's just a little bittersweet. It's impossible but I wish I could have it all. The family life and the single life. Sweet moments with my daughter and wife, and fun times getting trashed at the bar. I forgot what we were watching a few nights ago but people were smashed and I couldn't remember the last time I got stupid drunk. You know one of those nights were you tell everyone you love them, heh.

Truth is, you should have to be drunk to tell people you love them, it just makes it easier I guess.

Goddamnit, SNL is a rerun and it's umm...Katy Perry...school girl outfit...I'll be right back. LOL, whatever, I can't believe she's with that unfunny Get Him to the Greek British dude, I forget his name.

Okay, where was I? Ugh, damn upstairs neighbor has got her music cranked up. I guess as long as she doesn't wake Serafina, she's actually been quiet as of late, anyway. I guess that's about it. Everything's fine and good, can't really complain. Hope you're all doing well.

One,

Gil

Read this one a while back, but we've been over this a few times. When we were younger, we weren't ever going to slow down and were going to rock it hard forever, and then you find an older you that has other things in mind. The hussle of life is still there, so you can't call it "slowing down" but younger you would say so.

We're getting older and life's changing, and it's just a battle of selves. Older you is happier with things that younger you wouldn't want, and younger you keeps creeping in and calling you a hypocrite. I know I'm not as "awesome" as I used to be, but I'm a hell of a lot more content. I know I'm not as interesting of a character these days, either, but I can deal with that too.

I don't go out with my friends and get blazed, but as we get older we sit around with a beer or two and actually talk about shit. Sure we still come up with all these hair-brained business ideas like starting a WW2 themed restaurant where one side is Axis Powers with German, Japanese, and Italian fare (and drink) and the other is U.S., Russia, and U.K. fare (and drink). Then you get into arguments of whether you only go for the big three on each side or not. Should we should include a small section on each side with a limited menu from countries that weren't in the big 3? Does Indian and Australian fare fall under the British and fit into the big 3, because they're "Crown Colonies" or is it separate? Do you put a neutral strip in the middle? Will people eat something on the menu if it has Hitler in the name? What side do you seat Prince Harry if he shows up?

Life's good and younger us didn't know crap about anything. We do still need to get in a Soldier Field trip though. You, Jeff, and I (and one more Lions fan just to even things). We'd have to plan it in advance, though. I'm not paying secondary market rates on that. I'm sure it's tough enough grabbing them when they go on sale, but pretty sure it's not as expensive. I knew this year was out of the question with you having the baby coming and all, but it still must be done.
