Not-so Gracefully Juggling Flaming Chainsaws, Ever-Advancing Towards the Impending Apocalypse

Greetings blogees. If I am a blogger, I assume you to be bloggees. Apologies for the title, I felt the need to fit as many words in there as I could. So. It sure has been a while, and for that I apologize. The internet is terrible in Bahrain, particularly when you plop down an extra 3-5k Americans who need to update their iTunes and Skype their kids and whatnot assorted things we do. Another downfall—and I didn’t know this last time I was there, oops—taking photos is greatly frowned upon. So sadly, no fantastical pictures to report. Perhaps on my next stop I can make up for it. I did, however, get a chance to check out my buddy Joe’s blog, “Letters to my Children,” and I must say he is a dear, sweet, genius. Go read.  


Well, well, well. What else. I picked up a few new albums I aim to review here. Finding time to write—much less listen to music in depth—is always a challenge. However, I did start attending a music theory & appreciation class that started. Once a week a few of us take over a spare room to chat about music and what not. I think it’s going to be pretty awesome. I intended to write about that after the past couple meetings, but for some reason time has been very hard to come by lately. And I’m not even spending all of it in the gym like I used to! There’s so much I wanted to talk about; I’m going to have to get back in the habit of writing more regularly. Or at least, keeping a list to write about. You all know how I love lists…


ADD moment: Did you know, coffee is the second most traded commodity on earth, only behind oil?! If you have never checked out fellow Seattleite The Oatmeal, please do so now. I’ll wait. [toe tapping, whistling]


It's crazy how much stuff there is in life; I mean, there's so much to do and seems like never enough time... I can't prioritize worth shit. I'm working on an "extra credit" math class to get caught up for my next degree, kitty beds for hubs’ mom’s kitties, squares for the super-blanket, upcoming insane scarf for my favorite mermaid, video games [like a billion different ones tugging me in each direction], so many novels to read, music [cant even begin to start on that huge topic!], advancement to study for, qualifications for work, working out [falling behind there], maintaining a working relationship [not to mention keeping in touch with family and friends too, it takes me soooo long to even do something as simple as mail out postcards!] I mean, that's pretty tiring just to type out! I guess humans just by nature end up being good at juggling.
