This was an odd day. It was full of little snippets of things. Since they're all kind of interesting, this entry it going to resemble potpourri. Please bear with me.
First off, I read this quote by Scott Storch. He's producing Paris Hilton's upcoming CD and had this to say about whether or not she could hold a note:
"If people are given the right circumstances and the right track and the right melody, it's about the conviction. It's not necessarily about being a God-given virtuoso."
Umm. Yeah. That says it all right there. Conviction is what Paris Hilton is all about.
I also got e-mail this morning from my friend J. saying that he bought the house. He also sent a long more than a few pictures. I came down with a serious case of house envy. I showed the pics to Mrs. Geek and she groaned when she saw them. It's pretty much everything we are looking for in our dream home. *sigh* The only consolation is that the house J. and his wife bought is not well-located for our needs. Mrs. Geek and need to find its twin, about 40 miles away.
Finally, I had a rather interesting conversation at the gym this morning. I ran into a co-worker named S. She and I have been going to the gym at about the same time off and on for the last couple years. S. wants to become a personal trainer in addition to being a Company O. employee. She is, therefore, fit... very fit. Somehow we got to talking about holiday pounds and she commented that she's trying to gain weight. She's a work-a-holic, you see, and she evidently lives on a diet of high protein Atkins diet bars, nuts, and the odd bit of salad. She'd love to be able to eat a little better and gain a couple pounds. Though thin, S. isn't Calista Flockhart/Lara Flynn Boyle emaciated. She just looks very lean. I could only tell her that other women literally try to kill themselves to get themselves into that position.
That's pretty much it for today. The roads were quiet, and traffic light. I always try to take small blessings like that when I can get them.
