Damn! I just typed some stuff here and then accidently closed my browser and lost the whole thing. I am dumb.

We ordered pizza for lunch so I decided to take my break at my desk and do some blogging. Now, what to blog about?

I had a headache last night and really didn't feel like working out, but I did and it made me feel much better. Also, while working out I got to a really good part of Last Call by Tim Powers. It had some really cool ideas and I love the number of different things he throws into the mix. It's funny, because I've like the book a lot so far, but at about page 120 it suddnely kicked up the number of cool things per page and I really got interested. I'll definitely have to check out more of his stuff.

Anyway for another reason and due to the book I realized that I've really forgotten how to think. I mean, I know how to think, but I really haven't spent anytime over the last, say, five years really contemplating anything. In a lot of ways it makes me feel like I'm behind the curve on "life realizations." You know, those things you only think of when you have time to really delve into your thoughts on a subject without someone else piping up to counter your position. Maybe just talking smack, but last night ideas starting coming fast and furious and I realized I hadn't done that in a long time. I wasn't bothering to think about working out, going to the store, going to bed, eating dinner, meeting people -- I was just thinking -- about anything that came to mind. About why I do what I do. Why I don't do what I don't do. Why I feel the way I do about certain things. How thoughts have power, but aren't action. A lot of differnt things that would take far too long to write about here. It was...neat to be able to do that again.

Maybe I'm just learning how to be alone again.
