Pep Rally

I'm going to the Colts' Pep rally today after work. The pep rally is in anticipation of the Colts playoff game against the New York Jets I've never been to Lucas Oil Stadium aka "The Luke", I drive by it everyday on my way home from work, but I've been inside it. I'm kind of curious to see what my raised food/drink taxes have gone. And since the Colts are the "hometown" team, as it were so I'll support them. I have my blue Joseph Addai jersey in my car.

Its going to be a cold and wet walk. I'll leave my car in the IUPUI parking lot and walk the mile or so, maybe its that far, to the stadium. I'm sure it'll be a fun walking with other Colts' fans. When the Colts won Super Bowl XLI I had the opportunity to go to the celebration in the RCA Dome, you can read about that here.

It'll be a good time. I'll take pictures and post them.

a blog of note

I just "rediscovered" a blog written by a friend of mine. Well, its not so much a resdiscovery as a going back and rereading it. But now that I think about it and reread the preceeding sentence I guess it is, in fact, a rediscovery. Never mind. Really, I'm just prattering on. This blank box does that to me. I feel like I need fill the box up with words; words that in reality are don't mean much. Ah, I digress. Can one digress when one hasn't even made an inche of verbal progress? No, probably not. So to use the word digression is in fact a falacy. See what happens when I rediscover the joys of blogging? I become like a little boy, perhaps like Randy from A Christmas Story bouncing around a brightly lit Christmas tree... never mind. I'll stop trying to be cute and witty; I'm neither.

Okay, honestly, though, I'm trying to be like Jeremy. Really, I am. Trying to be bring in cinemagraphic references. Jeremy's blog is the blog of note I am referring to in the above title. He's a learned fellow, steeped in cinema. He knows his stuff. Me? I'm a neophyte. Hardly worth listening to. So, go ahead. Read Jeremy's blog. You'll be glad you did. Honest.

Hi, remember me?

I haven't abandonded this blog, really, I haven't. I will admit to neglecting it. The weeds seem to have sprouted and the hinges to the doors are a bit rusty, and the floorboard creek a bit when I walk around. I haven't forgotten, really, i've just been a neglectful owner. An absent landlord if you will.

Has it really been 2 1/2 months, maybe more, since I last updated this blog? Yes, I guess it has been. Amazing. My girlfriend and I are still going strong and are getting serious, this is a blessing in and of itself. We "celebrated" our third month anniversary recently and we are well into our fourth. Funny, that.

My job search continues. I am employed, but "underemployed" is the term used now-a-days, i think. But, somehow, I'm making it. I am reminded of the scripture that talks about the lillies in the field being clothed and the foxes having places to sleep. I'm concerned, but not worried. Maybe I should be more worried, but worrying has never done me any good, except make me sick and lose sleep. i am optimistic about the future and i'm ready to see what it, the future, has in store.
