where i was this weekend, and what i'm chewing over today
where was i?
friday night was quiet. i sat around the house most of the night, just reading and playing guitar. eRoommate came home around 9:30 and we went to the neighborhood bar and discovered that our favorite seasonal beer is back. we promptly drank two pitchers.
saturday was again pretty quiet. that evening was jo3's xmas tree decorating party. cool people, xmas music, cheesies and liquor. just what i needed. jo3 and i sat up and played guitar after everyone else had left. Ng came by to be serenaded and then tuck in jo3 before she headed home. i slept in a bean-bag chair under a wool blanket, in a room whose only furnishings were me and the xmsas tree.
sunday we all got up early and headed to the bar to watch the Packer game. it was a lot of fun to be saying goodbye to people at two in the morning, saying "i'll see you at the bar in a few hours". the bar was great. it was the largest collection of Packer fans i've ever seen. $2 miller lites, fried cheese curds, green and gold everywhere. it was a little pocket of Wisconsin airlifted into the heart of Denver. i'm not officially a Packer fan, but i know enough to play one on TV. fun time.
one final thought before i wander off into cyberspace in search of employment. when Joe jumps into the volcanoe, it's a leap of faith. and he gets his miracle; it spits him out, and he lives.
what if he didn't get his miracle?
what with the lava and all, do you think he'd have another chance to take another leap of faith?
what i'm getting at here is that i believe that sometimes you gotta leap. but how many times can you experience the burn before you don't want to leap anymore? before you no longer have the heart to leap, no matter how great the potential rewards?
that's what i'm chewing over today.
