Bits and Pieces

Once again, I have gone long enough without blogging, and little enough obvious has come up, that I am a bit overwhelmed. So, here are some random bits of babble. Nothing big enough for its own blog post, but little snippets that make their way through my brain...

Lithus has gotten his flight simulator up and running. I cannot wait to try it. :)

I have discovered the joys of time management games. It's the strangest thing; I love them. Not the ones where you have to make the burger or decorate the cakes. Those bore me. These are the ones where you have to complete certain tasks (build the road, collect the gold, save the bunnies, whatever) in a certain amount of time. It doesn't matter if it's an island kingdom or the roads to Rome or an evacuation of Atlantis, I'm hooked. Same game, different backgrounds. It doesn't matter; I love 'em.

A friend of mine from high school and I have gotten back in touch. We are like this ~ we can go literally for years. We always think we have lost the other one. Then, we haven't. And it is as if we talked last week. It's been ... four years?...this time. Doesn't matter.

I realize how often I write that about my friends. That I am back in touch with someone and it feels like yesterday. The FE; my Muppet; London. Now Starbuck. There's a reason I can say this so often: I am truly blessed. Blessed to have met some amazing people who love and value me as much as I love and value them. It isn't because I am nonchalant with the statement "oh, it was like yesterday!" It's because I take it so very seriously when it finds me.

As of this week, I can now do one set of 12 reps of pushups on my toes. They are the wimpiest, wussiest little pushups you have ever seen. My elbows barely bend. But they do bend. And then they straighten back up again. Considering that a year ago I started doing pushups against the wall because I couldn't do a single one, even on my toes, I am thrilled.

And because it's me, here are some lovely, lovely people to look at. Just for fun.

Hm. There should be more smiles up there, because nothing is sexier than a smile. Just look at Don Cheadle... Next time.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.

Did I ever tell you that when Teach was a kid at camp, Don Cheadle was his counsleor? How cool, eh?
