The Mundane Details of a Few Days in My Life

By , January 19, 2003

I suppose I’m overdue for an entry in this journal. I’ve been doing my research, namely reading other friends’ blogs and talking about the concept with them. A surprising (to me, at least) number of my friends have one of these online journals. I learned all kinds of neat stuff from them! For example, I’m supposed to be clever and have code-names for everyone; keeps things anonymous and all. If friends of friends read this, I don’t want to get said friends into trouble if I accidentally reveal some wicked deed. So, henceforth, only cute and clever code names will be used. So instead of “last night Nick cheated on Randy with Tom” I’ll have to come up with a less decipherable way to reveal that sordid affair to the world.

Now then, on to the events of my life since my first post. Because I’m sure people reallllly care. Let’s see… Friday was the card game my girlfriend and I set up via www.mixermixer.com. That’s a new social networking website some friends of mine have created. The card game turned out well. Elgiff came, whom we’ve only known from the site, so we all met her for the first time. She brought baked goods! Pessimista made pot roast, again, and Boy with Lisa Simpson Hair gave her a hard time about it. Sexy Singer was a no-show. My darling girlfriend Fizzy was there, of course, as it was at her and Pessi’s place. Who am I forgetting? Oh, umm…these darn codenames. How about A and K? That’s not terribly clever, but will suffice for now. They were there as well. They’re an awfully cute couple. Anyway, the mixer mixed well, except hardly any cards were played. We mostly talked, but it was fun.

Saturday– we dashed out of our apartment at noon and headed to dance lessons. Fizzy and I are taking a social dance class. We’re going to be really cool soon! Soon the day will come when we can go to clubs and waltz, cha cha, swing and rhumba, and by golly then people are going to like us, and we’ll make lots of new friends. But for now, we’re only learning.

After the lesson, Fizzy tagged along for my event that night. For those that care, it was a fiscal year end party for a corporate client. The party went really well– I was booked until 11:00, but they kept dancing until the hotel had to shut down at 12:30. In all, it was a 6-hour stint of DJing, which is kinda a lot, but the overtime money is a nice thing. :)

So that brings me pretty much up-to-date. I see that a couple people added comments to my journal. I imagine at this point few people read this. I think I’m going to need to come up with a better schtick than “what I did today” if I am to increase my readership.

    You have some really creative nicknames, how did you get yours and how do they get passed out? I think I was objective to the point of nicknames, because I originally created my Xanga to keep in touch with people I went to camp with…. and well they call call me by my name…. not that I write anything really private about other people, the focus is usually on me. (how shallow!!)

    Surprisingly I almost go along with all you’ve stated. I suppose it’s good to re-look at the way you think since you also enter lots of habits inside the head.
