At the end of the day, blogging is about writing. Deep down inside some of us enjoy writing; the chance to vent, to share, to hear what one thinks is a gift. The flip is that a few days off can seem an eternity. I used to lament at the difficulty of keeping content fresh (stagnant content will kill the internet) but now I feel like there is no limit to my freshness.
Back in Michigan it has been a few days of misc. fun stuff. Mostly. Sunday night we watched some hoops and made great spaghetti. Monday saw quite a bit of car repair to the Taurus then a return to Ann Arbor, swimming in the pool, some frisbee, and Wes Anderson's "The Life Aquatic." Yesterday I had meetings and some work, then we tinkered with bikes and rode into Ann Arbor to eat at Krazy Jim's Blimpy Burger, who has (no exxageration necessary) the very finest burgers ever. Seriously people, Fatburger is all well and good but I'd bet the Big House on the shack at Packard and Division having a superior meat sandwich. After dodging the rain and a coronary on the way home, more swimming and frisbee and the excellent "Spanglish."
This morning I made my way to the dentist, a hair cut, and the office for a Michigan Mentoring meeting. I signed up to mentor - loan eight hours to - a youngster from a local school district in the ways of NA/ME. Even though I think I did what I could (often only after my parents' encouragement) to help myself, it's nice to think that somebody not that different from me will have a better view of what they are getting into. Plus, mentoring pays cash money. I find this kind of weird, but mentors have to eat, too.
