As I sit here in my bedroom, plugged into my laptop, I start to chuckle to myself .
I have, like many of you out there, allowed myself to be swallowed be media. Right now, the clicking of my chiclet keyboard is being drowned out by the beautiful guitar riffs flowing through my firmly snugged ear buds. My digital umbilical cord is jacked into my laptop, streaming Van Halen III from my Zune player, (don’t judge me), and I’m loving every second of it. At the same time, I’m playing my move on ‘Spell It”, a Microsoft “Words With Friends’ clone, on my Windows Phone 7 smartphone, and watching ‘Trading Places’ with Eddie Murphy on At&T’s U-Verse cable slash satellite service. I can’t hear anything from the television, but I’m not worried in the least. It’s at the part where Winthorp, (Dan Akroyd’s character) has been arrested, and the police officer (Frank Oz ; Fozzy Bear, Miss Piggy and Yoda), makes fun of Winthorp’s opera tickets. “It’s an opera”, he says.
I’m not sure where I’m heading with this, but I do know that I can entertain you along the way. Well, I think I can.
Hope. Hope is more accurate of a word.
I know that I have so many facets, that I’m sure I can weave a real interesting tale. Question is, are you willing to come along and participate? It will be a fun ride. I can feel it. The time is right and I have alot of areas I’d love to explore with you. I have untold stories from my childhood, embarrassing moments aplenty and loads of creative “umph”.
Anyhoo, it’s my turn on my ‘Scrabble’ type clone of a clone game.
See you soon.
