It has been an interesting month to say the least. I have been reluctant to post to the site since it actually still exists in two different locations, but I can’t hold it in any longer.
In the home front, I have someone residing on my couch for the first time since Susie crashed back in the mid-90’s. So far things are going well, and it is a temporary thing for the summer and then we can decide to get a place together or if he decides to move on. So far things have been going smoothly since we have different schedules and also we get along well. Check in again later this summer and see if things are still going well.
Last week I went to my first concert in several years. I had wanted to go see the Madonna tour when tickets went on sale, but I just couldn’t get over the hump. The week before the concert I really started to hear good things about it and decided to go. The only problem was that I didn’t want to go by myself, so I actively recruited people to go with me. I finally ended up convincing Daniel and Tyger to go and we all had a blast. The show was great – only two songs that I didn’t care for and the rest were all amazing.
I was particularly impressed with was the quality of the video screens used in the show. I can’t believe how hi-res the images were. We’ve come a long way since the first Jumbotron. I also love the fact that Madonna sings her heart out and that it isn’t always perfect. The Forum was a smaller arena than Staples Center and it added more intimacy to the setting (if one can have an intimate setting with 16,000 screaming fans). All in all a great show!
Also many people have been asking, but yes I will be commanding a fleet sometime next year and I am very excitedly looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead in the next 12 months. Not that I don’t want to live in the moment, but my brain is already thinking about my future beyond the next year and I am trying to figure out what I want to do and where I want to go. I just keep reminding myself to stay focused on the task at hand and then everything will work itself out.
That’s about it for me. I did see some movies recently so I will post a few reviews.
