I obviously ain't livin' right...

It seems that here lately, I've gotten into a streak of sheer "absent-mindedness" of near epic proportions. Little things that are not part of my daily routine are just getting left by the wayside. It's all stuff that's in my personal life, so that's good (can't be getting all forgetful when on the job, now can I?), but it's freakin' irritating. I'm still driving on tags that expired last month, I've been to the store three times and didn't get any lightbulbs, I didn't buy any beer on the way home tonight so I'm almost out, I've only got two packs of cigarettes left, and letting the blog slide. Nothing life-threatening or anything, but just a pain in my butt.

Here's the worst one though. I was sitting on the couch just a few minutes ago (watching DVR'd episodes of Cold Case Files) and it hit me that I'd forgotten something. Hmmnn...what could it be...? I started mentally running down the things that I'd told myself I needed to do in the near future (listed above) and then it hit me like a bolt out of the blue...Shit, I was supposed to make a meeting of the Eagle Glen Social Club this evening. Boy do I feel like an idiot.

Here's me... Only an hour away from one of the friendliest, most entertaining, sharpest, and verbose people who've ever extended me thier hospitality, and my excuse for not heading down there...I forgot. Lame to the N'th degree, but there it is. For what it's worth Eric, I apologize. If it makes you feel any better, I just checked and saw that I've gotten my first comment spam in a long while. Nothing like a little Karmic Retribution to help one back on the path. Ah well. Here's looking forward to next week.

Oh no! It's no good to forget the *fun* stuff!

Wait... you passed up a chance to have fun and drink? Did you hit your head?

Maybe that WAS you that got hit by the elevator :-)

Great! Now I feel even worse. Sigh...Stupid Alzhiemer's.

Okay, the family and I am heading to Tennessee this summer for a tour of the holy land, er Jack Daniels distellery... purely research as it's a dry county.

There are some people that have been talking about a drinking contest between us. I'm not saying we should do that, but if I'm down there and you say you'll be there... and forget to show. I'm dropping an elevator on you.

Contest? Nah, too combative. A "Tasting" would be much more appropriate I think.

A couple of suggestions:
- Replace your phone with a Treo 600/650/670. It has a calendar / PDA feature to remind you of shit.

- Use Yahoo!'s calendar function. Every time you log into check e-mail, you can see if you have something that needs to be done.

- Stop watching recorded shows that add nothing to your life. Get a hobby that improves your life or someone else's. Limit your TV time to a "reward" for other things you accomplished. Like many other things, it can be addicting. It's entertainment - not a lifestyle.
