Dream is Destiny

105.7 FM had the gall to refer to Fine Young Cannibals as a “one-hit wonder”. How dare they! Yes, they are best known for “She Drives Me Crazy”, but have they not heard of “Good Thing”?

That having been said… my stay-at-home vacation has come to an end. I am well-rested, sun-tanned and generally at peace with the world. Serene to the point where I will probably tolerate work for a week or two before wanting to use more vacation time. But I still have about two week’s worth of PTO to my name, with more on the way this summer, so a few more weeklong furloughs could be had while the weather’s nice.

Biked for 2 hours this afternoon. Brought my vacation’s total mileage to about 115 miles.

Upcoming events: Mia’s daughter is expected in the next week or so. Damfest XIII is scheduled for June 18th. Sturgis Falls June 24-26. Katya returns from China June 28-ish. Dayna turns 12 on July 10 — another year and she’ll be a teenager. Matt & Kelly are planning to visit CF sometime in July, if Matt can get the time away from work. Andrea and Robert’s wedding is September 4th, though I have yet to receive my official invite in the mail.

Movies seen since 5/27: “Mister Roberts”, the 1928 version of “Fall of the House of Usher”, “Detroit Rock City”, “Sideways”, “United 93”, “No Country for Old Men”, “There Will Be Blood”, “Win Win”, “Little Miss Sunshine”, the 2011 version of “The Mechanic” and currently “Waking Life”.
