Some Semblance of Order, and The Winner Is…

24Feb13

Gack, it seems like it has been a constant cycle of sickness around here for the last few weeks and I haven’t had time to get anything done. I was going through some illness with withdrawal from the Lyrica and then got a cold, and then Sean has been sick with a respiratory infection, so it has been one thing after another, leaving no time to do anything at all for anyone. Now that everyone is feeling better and I am trying to get life back on the rails, I hope I can get back to more regular posts again. I just have to be more strict and regimented about what I am doing and when I am doing it and then I think everything will fall back into place.

Meanwhile, there seems to be a lot going on all around the world of politics, religion, sports and media since I last posted. The Pope is resigning, companies are getting hacked by the Chinese military, the government is nearing yet another financial standoff/crisis, gas prices are ridiculously out of control and there seems to be a countless stream of bad weather all over the country. It sounds like another typical couple of weeks the world over.

in the sports world, today is the Daytona 500, which is great for racing fans. I am not a huge fan, though I do follow and watch some of the races with my brother and I do root for one driver, Travis Kvapil. I just like his style, attitude and name, even if he doesn’t win the race. He tries hard and does his best each time out and had some good finishes last year, so let’s hope for the same this year.

It is also the start of spring training in baseball, bringing about my favorite time of year. I watched the Mets first spring training game on television yesterday and I am really looking forward to the season starting. I have a 15 game package this year, so we’ll be going to a lot of games to root them on and hopefully we’ll have some fun at each game. I’ll be doing a post later on about baseball memories and another player if you want to check back and see who it is later.

The other big news for today I guess is that today is the Academy Awards. I love to watch movies, but I have to be honest and say that I rarely actually go to the movies. I prefer to watch them in my home, so I usually wait until something comes on cable or Netflix before I get to see it, so I haven’t seen any of the nominated films yet this year. it takes a lot for me to actually go to see a movie, one because I think the price is really high to see a movie today and two there just aren’t that many movies that I would actually want to see. Michelle and Sean go to the movies a lot so they see much more than I do, but I do watch a lot of movies late at night on cable, so I have seen more movies as far as volume, but nothing quite as recent. So that leads me into a question for today:

What was the last movie you saw in a movie theater?

As I said, I don’t get out to the movies very often. The last one I saw in a theater was the installment of the Saw movies in 2010, so it’s been a while since I have seen one, but I have to admit there are a few I wouldn’t mind going to the movies to check out. Personally, I don’t often see much out there that looks interesting enough to me to go and see, although I am intrigued by “Dark Skies.” So what is the last movie you went to see in the theater? Let me know what it was and we’ll see what people seem to like the most.

Sean and I are getting back to our writing project as well. Here’s the topic from the latest cards that were drawn from The Storymatic:

A person who can’t wait any longer

At last, love

Sean didn’t like the choices, but we promised to stick to it. Personally, I think it will be easy to write about it, so check back and see about that one as well. Feel free to write along and contribute as well if you would like.

That’s it for this post. I have some other posts to work on now, so keep checking back to see what else goes up. Thanks for sticking with me through all the craziness. I’ll be back later. I think I’ll ask some celebrities what the last movie they saw was as well, so we’ll see if any reply. Talk to you later!
