Nostalgia... 9/28/2008 5:55:00 PM
I finally got around to booting my old AMD machine after it sat alone in my garage and basement for over a year.  It's sorta fun to be on a classic-- only one CPU core (and at a puny 1.2ghz) with less RAM than a high-end graphics card.  But still, it's fun to flip through my old Delphi projects and ponder bringing them into the new millennium.  

I'm reading a fun book called "The Undercover Economist" which is thought-provoking and makes me look at the world in a different (or more informed, at least) way.  I've really got to stop buying books though; I've probably got two dozen to read that have accumulated over the last few years.

Jane and I are watching the Showtime show "Weeds" on DVD after enjoying the Dexter series greatly.  While I wouldn't say that Weeds is as good as Dexter (and it's not much like it either) it's a guilty pleasure. 

Speaking of guilt-- I haven't been making it to the gym nearly as often as I should.  Oversleeping is the usual culprit, since I'm not exactly working hard when I do make it to the gym (watching Prison Break on DVD while I spend an hour on the treadmill).

Anyway... just some random thoughts today.  I can't tell you how often I'm drifting off to sleep or showering and feel like I ought to be putting thoughts to paper (or keyboard, I suppose).  I'm pretty sure that if I was born before the computer age, I'd probably end up a writer of some sort.  I suppose it's fair to say that I am a writer, considering what percentage of my day is spent writing specs or email.

Jason & Erin We love Dexter! What season did you watch? We need to watch Season 2. When did it come out do you know? Check out the show on fx called It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia with Danny Devito.
Eric We have Dexter Season 2 on DVD if you want to borrow it. Season 3 just started on Showtime.
Jason & Erin Thanks for the offer but we have the monthly pass at Blockbuster. We can rent as many movies as we want as long as we bring the movie with us to trade in. We are already on the second dvd of Dexter.
