Shake Up

I cleaned my bedroom today, which is not an extraordinary event worth writing about for most people. Only for me it happens bi annually at best, and never at worst. It's not that I'm too busy or anything, in fact for the most part I have absolutely nothing going on in my life. But for some reason I choose to live in filth for six months at a time. I am always amazed at the sheer amount of crap that I can accumulate in such a short span of time. It consists mostly of empty coke cans, and receipts for crap I didn't need to buy in the first place. But also I usually find a stack of notes that I write to myself in the middle of the night. For some reason I get most of greatest ideas while I'm asleep. Or at least what I think are great ideas at four in the morning. These notes usually turn out to be not so legible at best, and just doodles of what appears to be two stick figures having sex at a German carnival at the worst. These notes cover my night stand, and spill out on to the floor. They only contain stupid little things that in my sleeping state I think are critical to have down on paper. Whether it be jokes that I think are funny, or song lyrics, or ideas for a blog. Tonight, I found a note haphazardly written on the back of an old photograph that simply read: "Red headed lesbian goat farmer in Bogota, New Jersey" Apparently I believed at one time that this was relevant information.

So I guess that good news is that I can finally make my way to my bed without tripping over nineteen books in my way. The other thing I want to talk about is what I mentioned earlier that I have absolutely nothing going on in my life right now. I like to have a project, I like to have something to do at all times. I like to keep going, going, going when possible. I am my happiest when I'm busy, when there are people to see, and places to go. I can't understand why my appointment book is not filled to it's fullest extent. It makes no sense to me, I am amazing to be around. In fact I'd go as far to say that I'm the most amazing person I've ever met. And if I was another person and happened to meet myself I would do everything in my power to spend as much time with me as possible. I guess I'm just upset that I haven't been able to do anything productive as of late. In fact I'd go as far to say as the only productive thing I've done in the past month is to take a dump. And that's not even so much productive as it is filling up the sewers and polluting the ground water of Louisiana.

I guess what I'm saying is I need to meet that red headed lesbian goat farmer. I need to meet anyone, and everyone that brings some fun back to my life. I need a shake up. Yes I do.

I know exactly know you feel, Jordan. Not about the lesbian goat farmer but about the shaking up thing. :)

I'm no redheaded lesbian goat farmer, but I'll be in town Saturday if you want to go see Twilight again. And expand on the game -- I think we should include the words "blood," "want" and "is."

Kelli, you are almost as good as red headed lesbian goat farmer named Twizzler. Almost. And also we do need to do something while you're in town. Also firefly, I think everyone needs a big shake up once in a while. It's good for life.

I know just how you feel. Most of us need either a great of self-imposed discipline or a routine imposed by their jobs, wives or parents. Without it, one is apt to feel lost.

One thing I always tried to do is spend as much time as possible at a university library, just wandering through ideas that happened to interest me. It's like traveling for the mind!

Of course, real traveling is pretty cool too. A form of self-development when done properly. You already sound like a fairly cool guy with a few brain cells between the ears. Don't starve those poor critters!

It is so true the phrase, "Garbage in, garbage out." You don't eat garbage from the dumpsters I hope, but still so many people feed their brains a lot of trashy stuff. Being a snob isn't the worst thing a person can say about you. Not by a long shot.

You young whippersnapper! It is time for you to have some adventures!!
