so far so good

I am blogging before 6.
And I'm blogging right before lunch, so there's no way I can blog for more than 5 minutes.

I have my new iPod set on "Songs that rock" and I'm disturbed by the amount of classic rock in my library. Should that be the case? Is it weird for a 32 year old guy to have a bunch of Marilyn Manson and Justin Timberlake on his iPod (removing for a second the weirdness of either of those bands).

Shit. I dress in "GAP" jeans and banana republic shirts. The edgiest thing about my style is my shoes and my vocabulary. I have even given up on hair product. When they come up with a way to apply it that doesn't involve touching it with your hands, I may switch back. So what's a guy like me going to do with an iPod full of Eminem? Will my kid be horrified? Will my kid be horrified no matter what I do?


Until he can play guitar (or drums) better than me, I'll have that going for me.

I guess as long as he doesn't catch me in line at the courthouse with a Miller Lite tall boy, he'll manage to maintain some respect for me.

I will say "Fuck" less.
I will join the Y.
I will pay down my credit card debt.

It's not Gandhi's resolutions, but we all have to start somewhere.

I'll unofficially add "I will not drink wine that costs less than $8 per bottle."

And "I will order something other than filet mignon oscar-style next time I go to a good steakhouse."

I forgot "I will refrain from blasting my co-workers verbally."

Flossing should be on there. And doing the dishes every night, not just whenever the sink gets clogged with congealed leftovers or the stink gets too bad.

And no more blogging after 6PM on a weeknight.
