Next Post

Well, I wanted to write again Saturday night but I only got to Monday instead. It's looking as if bi-daily posting is the most practical thing for me, though daily is more desirable.

I looked up some interesting facts about Mount Aconcagua today. The most interesting thing about it to me was the fact that it takes no real skill to climb it. That's good news for someone like myself who has absolutely no mountain climbing experience. I'll have to look into what trips include and cost, though I doubt its something I'll be able to do in the foreseeable future. One can still dream I suppose...

Anyway, I didn't see anyone today except my wife. I think that the best holidays are the ones you can spend alone with close family. I don't see much point in spending all your time with aunts and uncles when they don't spend time with their own parents siblings. I think that's just a part of growing up. You have to keep some distance at least.

I gotta go now. Seeyah...

Saturday Morning

Yesterday was just a bunch of the usual, but with some bright spots. Some of my new coworkers seem to be cool people, and my job in general seems to be improving of late. Today I'll be alone for most of the day, which is cool with me, as I've never been one to need or crave the close attention of management. Sounds like everything is going to be alright.

Too bad about the Death of Luther Vandross, but it wasn't at all unexpected after his known health troubles. My wife was really into to him.

The retirement of Justice O'Connor is fascinating. All I've heard as to her motive is that she feels that she's too old and wants to spend time with the family. There's too much at stake politically, for both her and the nation, for those to be the only reasons. I expect to here ore about this in the upcoming months. Expect a fight on capital hill as the administration pushes for an arch-conservative to plug the leak of this semi-reliable, conservative swing vote from the bench. That much is obvious.

Anyway, I've got to go to work now. I'll post again tonight.

Another Long Day

Today I ran around the university writing emails and such, and afterwards I went ahead and watched "Batman Begins". If you haven't watched it yet, don't. It was a big disappointment to say the least. I walked away from it for a little while, came back 20 minutes later, and never had the urge to ask what happened while I was gone. I'm not exactly sure if that was because I was totally uninterested in what was going on, or because the script seemed to be made up as production went along. It was as if what happened in one scene had no bearing on what happened next. I guess that not every movie can be good.

Hopefully tomorrow goes better. Until then, Seeyah! Greg

Busy Days Never End!


I've just spent the past couple of days putting some of my old photos on the web and getting other electronic resources together. This was done amidst my weekly routine and thus largely at the expense of sleep, so this blog has unfortunately been neglected due to the inherent limits of such finances. I guess that qualifies as an apology, doesn't it? I'll let you be the judge.

Anyway, I'm starting to look into getting my own web page through yahoo, but it will take a while for me to develop it the way I want to even if I start this week.

Anyway, I've got some work to do and letters to write. See you later,

There's a place for everyone.

This is my new blog page, which will discuss anything and everything that comes to mind, and a few more things that escape reason and defy all understanding. That's me, myself, but not I on your the right. I am not snapping pictures of myself right now, of course, but writing this entry into this blog.

It is true that one cannot simulteniously read a particular blog and know the exact direction of the blogger thoughts at that moment. In case you weren't paying attention; that is the lamest postulate ever written! Real time blogging, projected directly from the bloggers mind to the screen, is regrettably still somewhat far off in the future. So were automobiles once, however. Are both worth the wait?

I hope that the entries on this site pique your interest just as they have mine. I also hope that you will take the time to respond to them and add any comments you deem relevent. This blog will include both day to day records of my personal activities which are usually tedious, and various records of my thoughts and viewpoints which are not. I assume that you're thoughts aren't tedious either, so please include them as I'd love to read them.

Talk to you later,

Gregory S. Smith
