Dear Blog

I'm not trying to ignore you. I know it feels like I am lately, but I really think about you all the time. The problem is that I just don't feel like anything interesting has happened to me lately. Now don't take that to mean I'm sitting at home watching TV and not leaving the house. It's actually the exact opposite. I've been having a blast. Last weekend I went tubing at Afton Alps, spent the evening at PF Changs and Southdale. In fact I almost ran into a fellow Twitterer at the Apple Store. That had been preceded by a Tweetup at Grumpy's where I met a group of people I knew from the Internet only and who I now know in what some call real life (like it's better than Twitter, ha).

Speaking of Grumpy's, apparently I put that on my MN todo list so that has been crossed off. It was definitely a cool place. Of course since they serve Surley that could have been part of it's charm. Anytime you have a Furious or a Bender in hand your going to be apt to consider your location downright awesome. I wasn't as happy with the mini-tacos as I thought I would be. I guess my tastes have changed since high school.

I also went back to the Herk on Tuesday this week. I didn't eat again as I has just spent the weekend eating out, but the beer was good again. I hung out with Drew and a few of his friends who were playing shuffleboard. I was only in uptown because I was looking at a new apartment. Which brings me to the next thing I have going on, I'm trying to find a new place to live. Though my current living situation is good, it's time to move on. I'm looking for a one bedroom or a large studio, somewhere near uptown or downtown. I've only looked at one place, and I'm going to take my time.

Last night was another great night, I started out at the ACME comedy club, meeting with a new young professionals group that I had developed a website for. I will admit to not being overwhelmed by the presentation that was being given, but as I ended up walking in late due to work and traffic I can't judge it too harshly. I met a few people, but I had the Twestival to get to and I was excited to meet some more of the people I communicate with daily in person. So, after having a beer and chatting for a bit I headed up the road to Moto-i. I had a blast hanging out with fellow Tweeple. It's nice to finally have a face to put to the tweets you read, and it's fun adding people to your list after having a conversation instead of adding them based on their last two 140 character thoughts.

So yeah, I've been busy, but it isn't an excuse to neglect you. I remember chatting with Emily and Bill a bit regarding changing how you write due to getting more readers. At the time I didn't think I would fall into that trap, but as my reader count increased I started to try and be more interesting or funny. But what I need to remember is the reason I started this site wasn't to entertain everyone else, but to give me a place to write whatever I want. I even put it in my About page. So I'm going to try harder to attend to you more frequently that on Wednesdays.

Thanks for putting up with me.
