Why did I choose to do 365 posts?!!

Surely I was either stupid or New Year's Eve drunk when I concocted this foolhardy plan to do 365 posts--one per day mind you--for 2009.

Boy, was THAT a stupid idea.

And still I'll try to soldier on. Its gone pretty well so far in January . . . until Sunday night. Trying to think of something for Monday's delivery has been difficult, mostly because I just want to sit and do nothing. Heck, I don't even want to sit down and try to do some of the work that I brought home with me this weekend. It's the curse of the Long Weekend. I feel the overwhelming desire to moss over and do as little as I can get away with.

Still, I'm going to work tomorrow, in part because there is work to be done and because it's going to be a (further) shortened work week for me anyway. My cataract surgery is coming up on Thursday and I'll be out of the office on Friday for recuperation. I hope I don't miss a day during this time, because it might provide me with something to write about. But that will come later this week.

I DID have another plan for the subject of today's post, but I am hesitant to post it. I'm embarrassed by it really. You see, Facebook has reconnected me with many old college friends and I've had that part of my memory reawakened a bit. So I've been digging through old photo albums and other stuff to remind me of that crazy (not so crazy for me, necessarily, but I did witness some crazy stuff) time. And I've found old essay written for classes.

All of this demands more time and detail that I am willing to give tonight, but I might delve into it at a later point. But whatever comes out of it, I'm sure it will involve me providing embarrassing stuff about me at a younger age. Embarrassing photos, embarrassing choices, embarrassing thoughts. But I was younger then. Must I judge my younger self by what I am now?

Anyway, here is an old video of the kids playing on a weekend. It'll help round out the last of this post.
