1. Has anyone ever tried any of the traffic-generating sites? I signed up for Blog Explosion the same week I started this blog, along with a few others. While there are some things about it I don’t like, it has remained a good way to find other bloggers, and is a site full of distractions that also bring people to you.
2. I had no plans at all for the weekend, and yet it turned out to be quite busy. Friday night, grabbed dinner with friends and decided to go have A DRINK. Well one turned into, I don’t know, seven. Next thing I know, I’m getting home at 3:30 AM.
3. I went to Asheville, NC for dinner and a movie Saturday. There’s an awesome movie theatre there that shows artsy sorts of films that are always wonderful but rarely have what it takes to be commercially successful. We saw the Oscar-nominated movie “Milk”, which was easily one of the best I’ve seen in a while. Sean Penn gave the best performance of his career. Go see it if you have a chance.
4. On Sunday, I attended the annual RV and Boat show. It was overwhelming. Who knew there were so many options for boats and campers? I was shocked to see that most of the campers were, to put it nicely, tacky as hell. I thought for $140,000 you’d get something tasteful, but apparently you have to spend several million on a coach built Prevost (what most celebs use as their tour bus). I’ve never seen so much polyester upholstery, and tacky “gimmicks” in my life. (A holographic “fireplace” in one, a peel and stick looking grandfather clock in another!)
I did however, fall in love with a Sea Ray yacht that could be had for the price of the average McMansion (pictured above). I was amazed at how well they use every inch of available space. The boat was full of cozy(or claustrophobic) little “spaces” that seemed perfect for curling up with a good book on the open waters. Ahhh…maybe one day.
