Today was the first Sunday in a very, very long time that I went to a local pub for a great brunch and sat there for about 3 hours reading the Sunday NY Times. MAN, I missed doing that! I felt bad at first because I thought I should be reading The Denver Post instead to support my new city’s paper but a local source has told me that their reporting isn’t quite up to snuff so I let go of my guilt and indulged in the superior paper. Being unemployed, I’m trying to watch every penny I spend but decided that the $6 was worth it. Sure, I could read it online but it’s just not the same. I hope printed papers never go away. And I hope that I won’t re-read this blog post in 20 years and smirk to myself about how naive I was back in 2010. Thinking that printed papers would actually last. I also hope I have better things to do with my time in 20 years than re-read this blog post.
There was an interesting article about Greg Mortenson, the author of “Three Cups of Tea” (a book I still need to read), and how he has become an unlikely U.S. military adviser in Afghan tribal areas. Worth a quick read.
Went to trivia night for the second week in a row. Our team placed second for the second week in a row. Enough is enough. Next week the title is OURS.
One more tidbit from the weekend is that I went to a “Dead Weather” concert which is another side project of Jack White’s. Below is a photo of what was looking at me the entire show. A little freaky but the music was good.
