Things here are going well. The move happened without any major incident and now that I’ve settled in a bit and got my bearings again its time to start blogging more frequently. Mike has found work and gotten two jobs. They are both exactly what he is looking for. I have been interviewing and talking with folks about work and I’m looking at a couple of different prospects. I’m just waiting on the job offer(s) now. I couldn’t have picked a better home. Despite some initial hesitation about the location. I am very please. Everything is within walking distance and the traffic is really not as bad as it was made out to be. There are a few Meet-ups that I’m interested in. I’ll have to wait and see how those go. One of the goals in coming back here was to expand my circle of friends and hangout buddies. I’ve dropped almost 11 pounds since moving here. The almost daily walk or bo-flex workout has been helpful I’m sure. Today was a 5K hike. The route took me along Franklin Ave almost to Western and then down to Hollywood back to Franklin/Highland. I don’t think I’ll do the Hollywood Blvd. part again. It is a little seedy/dicey down around Western/Hollywood. Heading west is the preferred option. The neighborhoods are nicer and there is Runyan Canyon, which I usual do when I walk. Anyone in the Hollywood/LA area that reads this if your interested, I’m always open to walking with others. This morning I have a meeting in West L.A. and then an interview at 1p.m. The time between jobs has been well spent. A lot of organizing and rearranging, particularly after the move. Well I hear the microwave beeping so my breakfast is ready.

the limits of blogging

I haven’t written a real entry in awhile here anyway. I post to twitter or face book or my space but almost never to all of the above AND to live-journal. I think that my life is really just as ordinary as most everyone else’s so there isn’t a whole lot of need to keep you in the loop on my eating, sleeping habits or emotional state of being. My thoughts are not all that interesting to anyone but myself. I started blogging because it is a way to keep family and friends who live far away in the loop. It became a tool for self-examination and to share the occasional interesting idea or funny idea that I either came across or had myself. For example of late I’ve been thinking that if I were 20 years younger but had my “years of living smarts” under my belt I would so do the whole porn/escort thing for a living. In truth at 44 and 30-40 pounds heavier than I like to be I could still do it but of course the Market would be different. I looked at pictures of myself when I was in my early twenties and had just moved here to L.A. and I weighed around 175 was 6′ and fit in fairly well body-wise with most of what I see walking around weho these days. It was the 80’s so my fashion choices are very definitely 80’s weho queen which in retrospect was a bit frightening. I blame it on the Republicans its always there fault anyway, everything is there fault which is why we can’t let the old war veteran and that crazy mean spirited moose hunting bitch get into office. Ok I’ve gone off on a tangent once again so I will go get a coffee and just post this thing.
