A couple of recent observations:
1) Facebook is like school when the teacher steps out of the classroom for a moment - yeah, you can get some work done, but often times the obnoxious kids in the back of the room ruin it for everyone. I don't use it much at all because I hate all the junk that people send out - invitations to stupid things. Yeah, it was funny the first time, but seriously - be discriminate about who you invite to be on your "let's make the biggest tinfoil ball" group. Don't randomly hit "reply-all" to e-mails and don't invite all of your "friends" to join you in whatever new gadget you found on facebook.
2) Just when you think you've got something figured out...God throws you a curve ball. Bridgette remains "with child" - and if his movements last night as we lay in bed were any indication, she'll remain that way for a little while yet. Brennan came 3 and a half weeks early - Aidan is taking his sweet time. Which means our house has got to be Mr. Cleaned every night - good ol' nesting kickin' in!
3) Police are people like you & I... with badges. As I drove into the office today I was passed by a female Ohio State trooper (does it matter she was female? I dunno, but she was) - she was talking... on her cell phone! Now, unless you're in Brooklyn, Ohio, there's no laws here about driving under the influence of a telephone, but as a police officer? What happens if you see a felony in progress? Better yet, what happens when you miss seeing a felony in progress because you're distracted?
4) Sometimes you've just got to do it. And this goes for nearly everything in life, including, but not limited to blogging. Just throw crap up there to get the juices flowing. So, that's partly what this is about. That, and I didn't feel like digging deeply yet into the things I've been pondering lately - but I will, rest assured, I will...
