Joe's New Blog

Nothing special, this is just my third effort at writing a blog about my life and what goes on in it: Hobbies, cooking, work, maybe the occasional book or DVD review, and so forth. Nothing really noteworthy, but this is sort of a little subset of my world...

So, I haven't been posting much to the ol' blog lately. "But why?" you might ask yourself. Probably not, but perhaps. In any case, I've mostly been not posting because I just really haven't felt like it. I've had all kinds of interesting things happen over the past couple of months, but I just really haven't had the urge to post anything on the old website. Sad but true.

Lately I've pretty much been feeling like I've been doing some kind of penance for a sin which I've committed somewhere in the past, but I don't really know what the sin was or how long the penance is going to take. The girlfriend has been trying to be supportive of me during this time, but I'm sure that it's taking its toll on her, too. She's missing the happy, sometimes sexy, man that she dragged down here to live with her. Now all she has to deal with is this boring couch potato who doesn't do a damned thing all day except go to work and sit and watch TV. She made a comment a few days, maybe a few weeks, ago, along the lines of, "You need to invent something, because if anyone's going to get us out of here, it's going to be you." Since then, I've been feeling a little buoyed up by the sentiment, but also anchored down by the responsibility.

During that same conversation, I commented that maybe someday someone would pick up one of my songs and I'd make some money that way. Her rather sarcastic response was along the lines of, "Yeah, I can really see that happening." Was it a realistic response? Perhaps. But I really do appreciate the support. Really. I'll be sure to keep it in mind on down the road, when the music thing really does pan out...

Anyway, that's enough bitterness for one day. It's late and I've had too much to drink and I should be going to bed. Despite what I might think about future careers and show-biz and whatnot, there are bills to pay and I need to get to my job tomorrow....
