Entry: Today Friday, July 18, 2003

  Another work day is finally over.  Naturally I left work early.  That's gotten to be a bad habit with me.  Can't hardly remember working a 40 hour week in almost a year.  I've got to stop doing that but I hate to stand around and not do much.  Even worse is stand around and watch other people not do much.  Today was different though.  Things went rather smooth.  Especially for a Friday.  It's just not the job it use to be though.  Progress sucks when it takes your job away.  Oh I still have my job, I just don't have to actually do it.  Some people dream of being paid for doing nothing.  I can't stand it!!! 
  I did get some information out of Troy about his car wreck.  He flipped his sisters car a few days ago.  Naturally he was drunk.  Not even suppose to drive any car but his own because of some alcohol intervention system he had to have installed about a year ago.  (Some people never learn)  Anyway.....the car got reported stolen.  Go figure.  I'm sure his sister is happy.  She now has his Mustang.  I give him another month or so and he won't be so lucky.  I figure he's either going to get caught drinking again or hurt himself or someone else and really be in deep shit.
  Speaking of drinking     :-)         I've been toying with the idea of going out for a beer or two tonight.  Why not?  I deserve it.  I haven't been out in a while.  The last time I had a drink was the day my best friend died.  I'm not a heavy drinker anyway.  I can go out and have one or two and come back home before it's too late.  Kinda hard to get up at 3am if I don't stop then.  I could use the atmosphere anyway.  With a little luck I'll even meet the next love of my life.  Ahhhh who am I kidding?  I'm not exactly the bold and brazen type.  I lost that drive a long time ago.  I'm just the type of person that can take women or leave them.  Hell.  I'm 37 years old and have actually only asked out 2 women in my whole life.  I made the mistake of marrying one of those.   Honestly, all the other dates I've had, they did the initial asking.   It's good to be pursued    lol
  I've been sitting here listening to Glenn Miller.   Man I love swing.  Sure wish I still played in a band but those days are gone, at least for now.  It's been so long since I've played seriously it would take me months to get back anywhere near the level I once was.  Ya know.....I think I'll just stop here and go play the piano for a while.   No swing though.  I'm more of a ballad person on the piano.  Lionel Ritchie wrote some good stuff.  Maybe I'll work on some of my own old ones.  They aren't near as good but they are mine.

K, I'm not an 'adult' or whatever so you might not even care but I'll tell you anyway. I'm in a jazz band(school jazz...pretty corny) but yeah, I play the trumpet.
"Stairway to the stars" and "Fools rush in" and the other one...what was it? Never mind, I'll think of it later. I like those songs. My Gramma used to play him all the time.
