If I had a million dollars…

June 8, 2010

I’m listening to Radio Free Lunch on Davefm. The theme today is “If money were no object, who would be your ultimate wedding band?” Bare Naked Ladies’ song “If I had a million dollars” is being played which seems doubly fitting. I think they would be very entertaining at a wedding.

I find it hard to write when my mind is consumed by one or two themes – which is has been lately. I think I just find it hard to write in general right now. It concerns me. I’m not sure what the problem is.

The winds of change are blowing, but not in a very strong determined fashion. It’s more the kind of wind that sneaks up out of nowhere and blows your stack of papers all over the place, completely disrupting the current calm in your life, but not actually changing anything.

Today is the first day in a few weeks where I wasn’t working, trying to go somewhere (or come home), hanging out in another state, or sick. I hardly know what to do with myself. I’ll probably spend a lot of time preparing for my next four day trip (long overnight in Toronto!), followed directly by a trip to northern California.

Last week Peter and I drove from San Diego to Las Vegas for his 21st birthday. The drive was beautiful, especially to one person who has never seen “real mountains” and to two people who have never seen a desert. Vegas was overwhelming. We only had one night and part of two days to hang out, and if you’ve ever been there, you know you can spend a week just looking at all the shops and cool architecture. It was hard to divide our time between all the insane people watching, checking the city out, and just having a good time.

We ate a pound cake that I had carried from GA to FL, back to GA, to IL and back, to CA, then to NV. That cake had more miles on it than some people will ever get. Leave it to our wonderful mother to make sure her young son has a good cake for his birthday.

Some of that cake would go great with the coffee I’m having right now…
