March, 2011:


Sometimes you just don’t feel like updating.

I feel anxious about that, but I’m just gonna let it be for a while. No need to push it.

See you in a bit…

List 9: Fave website/blogs

Have to say, it’s not very exciting. Funny thing is that by doing this, it makes me want to look for more to add. Particularly about Paleo Diet stuff and Texas Mtn Biking.

List 8: In the bag

List 8: What’s in my bag?
Okay so yeah, I missed a couple of posts, so sue me. Never mind, I don’t have the money! ha!

Anyways, todays list is about my bag. Funny thing is now these days I carry about TWO bags. One is a gym bag and the other is the work bag. So we’ll discard the gym bag as being in this list.

Actually I did an earlier post about my bag here. Since then I have come to really enjoy and like the bag. It’s grown on me!
So lets get to the contents:

  • 2 USB drives
    a USB multi SD card adapter
    a eyeglasses screw kit/replacement screws
    a Cross® Pen
    a rotting® 600 Newton Rollerball pen
    a rotting® 600 Newton ballpoint pen
    a Moleskin book (small)
    a Field Notes® 48 pg memo book
    extras of my business card
    an original Leatherman® Tool
    3 packages of CD mailers to send out
    1 UBS hard drive (100 gig)
    Esquire® magazine
    The Economist Magazine
    Some old mail
    a leather bound portfolio that i’ve had for years with legal sized paper pad

and that’s it!
Yep I have NO laptop. An iPhone is working pretty well for me on that front. I may eventually get an iPad, and if I do, the Timbuk2 case I got will easily accommodate for that.
I have to admit though, there are days when I just carry the bag around without opening it which makes me wonder, why bring it?
Topic for later…

List 5: Weekend Goals

Oh this one is gonna be easy! I make a huge list and end up not doing it all. At least it’s out of my head. BTW – weekend for me starts after 5pm friday when I get off from work! So here goes the brain dump:

  1. Museum of Fine Arts Impressionists & Post Impressionists exhibit with GF.
  2. Go running?
  3. Meet friends post run for breakfast at new breakfast place – Phil’s Barbque
  4. Laundry
  5. Grocery shop
  6. Meal plan for the week
  7. Wash/clean mountain bike
  8. file papers away
  9. paint doors
  10. foot massage with GF using gift certificate
  11. try out new TriggerPoint Therapy tools, following DVD
  12. Write my blog post
  13. firm up San Antonio trip plans
  14. depending on weather, bike ride at Lake Houston Wilderness Park with friends
  15. Email friend HFIT photo with ex-Mayor
  16. Email photos of Big Bend Ultra to Friends of Big Bend National Park
  17. Review freelance contract/customize for my use.

Whew! I better get started!


List #4 : Play List

Day 4: The Play List

So today is the Play List day, referring to the musical play list. Well this should be an interesting one for me. I’m pretty much always adding new music to my collection daily. Every so often I make playlists, but they are often ideas for something. Like right now I have one going for “The New Girls”. That’s not a band, but rather this idea of woman vocal singers of new music I’ve gotten recently. I have to put a limit on it and say nothing older than 2 years. Another example is a 2010 compilation I created and passed around recently. Basically new stuff, non-techno, that was released in 2010. Lots of chillwave and Indie rock. I’ve been enjoying it immensely, but am beginning to tire of it. That’s when ideas for new lists begin. Much like the newly created “Here Comes 2011”. I’ll put that one down as my list for the day; it’s by no means completed or very full, but it’s started and will fill out nicely soon enough.

Artist Song

  1. Woodsman – Insects
  2. Grouplove – Colours
  3. Ringo Deathstarr – So High
  4. Steve Wynn and the Miracle 3 – Resolution
  5. The New Division – Starfield
  6. The Veils – Bloom
  7. Wild Nothing – Golden Haze
  8. Lykke Li – Get Some
  9. Jessica Lea Mayfield – Our Hearts Are Wrong
  10. Braids – Lemonde
  11. Hayes Carll – KMAG YOYO

As a side note, I want to send a special blessings out to my blog friend Hotpinksox. Her grandmother is nearing the end of her life and it’s a stressful time filled with worry and anxiety and loss. I just wanted to let her know that I have positive thoughts for her in my mind lately. Hang in there girl…
