Random Ramblings: Where Ya Been?

Stuttering: It has been a long time since I last blogged. I think it has been the longest amount of time between blogs since I started blogging over a year ago. I just don't know what to blog about anymore. And if I can't think of a topic to blog about, I just bag it and put it off till the next day. Yeah, we see how well that has turned out.

Angry Blogging: Now I did have a topic that I really wanted to blog about these last couple of days but as you can see I have not yet published it. I have something that I really want to blurt out and fire back at but I don't think it will do any good. Aside from the brief moment of getting revenge I guess. It goes back to my blog a few weeks ago that dealt with backbiting. I want to "bite" back at some mud that was slung at my family. But it won't do any good, it will just feed the flames. If that is what they think and reap, that is what they will sow.

I'll eventually catch up to you!

Reading: I have started the autobiography of President Monson, To The Rescue. So far it has been enjoyable and I am sure I will learn something from it. Now applying what I learn... ...well, that is another story. I will have to crank this hefty book out pretty quick if I want this done by the quarter.

Procrastinating: My cousin Josh updated his blog with how he is doing with his New Year's Resolutions. I know I should do the same thing but I am a bit afraid of what I may find.

Celebrating: Finally!  Mountain Dew Livewire has returned to Cache Valley! Now I don't have to go to Salt Lake anymore to find my favorite Dew!

Listening: I don't know about you but I seem to swing from band to band for months at a time. I would listen to U2 for months and then go somewhere completely different. I am now back to listening to Queen and I feel like I am back with some old friends. 

Hammering: I went and saw Thor yesterday and I have to admit that I was pretty impressed with it. The acting was fantastic. Both Thor and his brother Loki exceeded my expectations. And it was loaded with a ton of geek moments for the hardcore comic book fan. I think my favorite cameo was one of the best Thor artists Walt Simonson. He was sitting at the table with the other Asgardians celebrating near the end of the movie. That must have been such a surreal and fantastic moment for him. I am totally looking forward to the Avengers next year. 
I am not a huge Thor fan and I only have a smattering of comics. But Walt Simonson's run on Thor is one of the all-time greats of ANY comic. Watching the movie made me dig out that run and start over again from scratch.

Rubbing: I have been rubbing my poor legs today and last night. I have not played racquetball for about a week due to me being sick. Yesterday I played for the first time in over a week and I am sore! I am looking forward to defending my belt tomorrow morning in what may be the last time. Both our schedules change and we cannot play so early in the morning anymore. I am going to go out like a winner though!

Wishing: All the Mothers a belated Happy Mother's Day. There are a ton of them out there. Logan made a nice card along with a book of gift certificates that Kristy could use.

  1. In regards to my shout-out ... don't be afraid of what you'll find when you revisit your goals. I bet you'll be surprised at what you've accomplished and will have renewed energy in reaching the other goals knowing you still have 2/3 of the year left!

    And Thor was a VERY GOOD movie. Worth the midnite showing I suffered through for sure! :)
