Big City Living

So I headed to a meeting in Chicago on Wednesday. It was neat to be part of the big city work culture, if just for a few hours. Sometimes I think I would like to get lost in the hustle and bustle of a major metroploitan area.

Ride the train into work, head to my high rise building, and my job at a booming internet business, where I get to wear jeans, and work with a guy called Skeeter. I would eat at any number of hip bistros just a stones throw from my building.

After work, grab a drink at our local "hangout", and then hop the train back home.

It seems like such a different world than good old Stevens Point.

That being said, I enjoy my 10 soon to be 2 minute commute to work. I don't mind the buiness casual atmposphere, and I don't have to worry about my company going out of business. So while I think it may be fun, I know at the end of they day, I prefer it right where I am.

So I was one of those nerds, who watched the countdown on Facebook so I could get the username I wanted. I am now officially,

Is this my 15 minutes of fame?

So I do the Twitter as some of you know. I follow a handful of people, one of which is @paulandstorm they make me smile, so I like to keep up with what they do. Well, yesterday Paul tweeted that he was flying solo on the podcast they do and was looking for some things to talk about. I sent over the question I posed here earlier, if you could watch the films of one actor/actress who would it be.. I had a half day at work, and was cleaning the kitchen, so I decided to see if by any slim chance he actually read my question.

I have to report, not only did he read the question (and mention my name), he gave one hell of an answer, Jimmy Stewart, and then posted the question on their website for all to answer.

Now millions of people are sitting at home, deep in thought, over a question I posed. Bards are writing songs about the complexity of thought I must posses to come up with such a question. Women are waiting to throw themselves at me (sorry ladies, I am taken). Children are are putting plans in motion, so they can grow up and be like me.

Or not.

None the less, it is was a very cool experience. If this is the 15 minutes I get, I can happily except it.

All by myself...

So Mandy is in Milwaukee for work, and I am home alone with the kids. I have found that it makes me more efficient. Got home, did dinner, put Sophia in her PJs, got Trev in the shower. Did a load of laundry, ironed my shirt. Everyone in bed by nine, with the house cleaned.

Not sure how the morning will go, but as long as I can get up and showered before Sophia gets up I think I am going to be fine.

I hope.
