Woohoo! I just accomplished everything on my to-do list tonight.

Of course, there were only three things on my to-do list. But they were all fairly significant:

  1. Call back a friend of mine. We haven’t talked in a while, and we’d missed each other at a meeting on Saturday, so I was afraid there’d be some bad blood or something. But he was very apologetic, and I had a great time talking.
  2. Write a thank-you note for the bull riding on Saturday. Tom Peters says that, when it comes to building relationships, the best return-on-investment activity is sending thank-you notes. And I so enjoyed watching those cowboys risk their necks that I wanted to thank them. So that was done.
  3. Write more on Giant Armors (my young adult novel). That was really the hard bit; it’s amazing how much Resistance can push back at you when work needs to get done on a project like this. But I muscled through it and wrote another six hundred words or so. I’ve added some nice character texture. So that feels good.

So, I feel good. I set myself a couple of do-able tasks, and I did them.

Wasn’t so hard, now was it?

7:32 p.m.

I may come back and write a nice, long post about something in particular—I have quite a lot to write about, actually—but I just finished reading Saalon‘s post about Buffy. As in, I started reading and just couldn’t stop until I was done. I held my breath, realizing somewhere deep that I was reading something really good, something from the heart.

I want to go watch Buffy now.

Life Is A Highway…

My second viewing of Cars was exactly as enjoyable as the first.

A rare thing, really.


Stephen You didn’t see Buffy? Great show. Erin introduced me to it, actually.
Brent Well, I’ve seen maybe fifteen episodes all the way through, and bits and pieces of others. I certainly haven’t seen a significant percentage.
