ok well mikey buddy was blogging about bands covering songs, and of course wyatt always posts amateurs doing covers. so anyway, this is a cover that I have on a cd and really like, it's just funny how it's all laid back, and I like hearing it come up on my itunes when it's shuffling through. check it.

happy Halloween....

change change change....fall

excellent weekend going along here. I got two calls yesterday. one from this guy I mentioned before 6'3 guy that I met a while back, he works at a school near me here in town. mid 20's, needing a place to live for a while....I'm considering today...may work out for the better for me financially, on the other hand I'm pretty used to living alone and there'll be lots of cleanup in the extra room before anyone could move in. ha
the other phone call....well, way back a few years ago when I was teaching English at a night school, I mentioned this guy, DQ, who had this t-shirt on that said in Spanish "in case of fire, pull hose" with an arrow pointing down to his crotch. oh man that was sexy. the guy was beefy muscular latin blue collar guy, and he and I could talk for hours. his eyes. well anyway, he called me up out of the blue saying he's looking for work, been considering going to college, and he's 29, and he's been divorced for about a year etc.. talked for an hour and a half... am glad to be back in touch with that guy.
well tonight's the last night of working the haunted house. it's been some good extra cash to have, for one thing I had to write a check for $200 yesterday to pay for the appraisal on getting my house refinanced. going from 7.25 to 5.7, going to save a lot of money and when I'm back working full time, I can pay extra towards principal etc.....get this house PAID for so I can spend my money on TRAVEL!!! ahh yeah. speaking of......
--someone comment on any new musicals I should see while in NYC. also any sites shops clubs etc if you're willing to mention....
bring on NOV and DEC, ready here

fun with a buddy

dance with somebody

Percy Shelley

Poets are the hierophants of an unapprehended inspiration; the mirrors of the gigantic shadows which futurity casts upon the present; the words which express what they understand not; the trumpets which sing to battle, and feel not what they inspire; the influence which is moved not, but moves. Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world.

back to it

I hate it, getting back to the gym, that first week of soreness cause you've taken more than a week off. ugh... prolly 3 weeks since legs, cardio doesn't really count for legs...
I've been most consistently working chest and back once a week. but now that I've planned the dec NYC trip. it is full on back to gym 4-5 days a week, and hitting all the areas. which means getting my arm day and shoulder back in the mix.....I'm going to swim in the mornings again as soon as I get some swimwear I ordered cheap online to arrive.
talked to some chunky hunky muscle dude at the gym today. he was wearing those vibram feet shoes, like I posted when I went to san antonio river last summer. I asked about why he was working out in them etc.. blah blah, anyway, I may consider mine next time I work leg day.
I'm feeling pretty good this week, it will be my last weekend coming up where I'm super busy working the haunted house and then my weekends will free up for more rest and relax and social time. I've had a few calls from this one "buddy" of mine in town wanting to come by, and he's recently broken up yadda yadda, but I' haven't been in the mood so I"m not answering any of his calls. I already told him I"d be in the mood after november/shave the beard.
I am really looking forward to NYC and already thinking about which one jacket and one coat and clothes in one carryon I want to bring.
also I'll be going up to Kansas here in a couple weeks to help a friend pick up some Amish furniture he had hand made for him to bring back to ARkansas. this is my best friend married guy who really loves me and counts on my friendship although its difficult having his best friend live in another city and all. he's got his wife and 2 kids, but they are both socially shy and not good making couple friends. He and I are really looking forward to staying over in Kansas city one night and having a boys weekend away. just friends now, no funny business. even though I'm sure he's aware of my leaning since I made a few moves back in college, which is what i love about his friendship he doesn't bring it up and loves me just the same. also he and I are both very, what he calls "metrosexual" which means love shopping together and just hanging out and seeing sites etc....
BTW, anything going on first weekend of Decmeber in NYC, let me know.
