Well I guess its time for me to start this thing. Ive talked about starting a blog for a while now and I have no idea what will come of it. It could be a huge success where 15 people read it and like it. Or a more realistic scenario would be only Miguel reads it and tells me its stupid. The last thing I actually wrote was a 20 page paper that shrunk to 14 pages on Abbott and Costello before graduating college, and that was over a year ago. I do know that I will have at least two groups of people who actually read this thing: my parents and the FBI after I accidentally googled “underwear bomb.” Jihad aside, I know what I’m writing about first. I spend a lot of time watching basketball and with the NBA Lockout now in its 5th month I have some time on my hands. I still have college basketball to follow, but I decided to take advantage of the situation and make a list of things to do during the Lockout. It was originally going to be a list of 10 but I’m lazy enough that 5 will keep my busy for a while.
Start a blog
This one’s pretty obvious, especially if you’re reading this right now. This is my blog, welcome. I was supposed to do this a long time ago, but better late than never is a saying that fits here. Who knows what I’ll be writing about later. Should I go do something and blog about or just write whatever come into my mind? Lets just see what happens. One thing that I have learned so far is that I have terrible grammar and I miss spell a ton of words, but together we can get through this.
Read a book
This one sounds like a pretty significant step in my life, but I really have started reading books, and by choice I might add. Its true what they say, you never forget your first, and my first was Marley and Me. I bought it in the airport and had no idea what it was about, but there was a dog on the cover so I thought I couldn’t go wrong. It turned out to be a great book, better than the movie (yes I’m one of those people now). Most of the other books I’ve read involved basketball, so if my next book can involve a dog and basketball that would be the best of both worlds. Is there an Air Bud book?
Go to the zoo
Ive lived in Vegas my whole life and I cant remember going to the zoo once. Its really a great zoo. That’s something you would hear a person from San Diego say about their own zoo. The Las Vegas zoo sucks, and that’s why I want to go. I remember the San Diego zoo and how cool it was to go on a safari and see the animals, but I have no idea what to even expect from the Las Vegas one. I imagine it will look like an occupy wall street protest, except with animals. Dirty, smelly and security guards on power trips. The animals at this zoo are the 99 percenters, the difference is they are about to die so they don’t care. And I couldn’t be more excited.
Ive talked about wanting to go and play cards with old people at an old folks home, so I might as well try it now. Old people are hilarious and they always have good stories, at least the ones on TV always do. People are always calling me and old man cause I get tired easily, I don’t like loud noises, I’m a fan of sweaters and early dinner sounds kinda appealing, so basically these are my people. But I do not drive with my blinker on, there’s a line that I haven’t crossed people.
Go to the gym
And I’m not talking about like in high school, where I would sit on the exercise bike and watch TV until it was time to leave. I’m going to give it a real shot, mainly because I found a cookies and cream protein shake that I really like. But also to get bigger. I’m about the size of a jockey, so working out couldn’t hurt. Hopefully I can do it to a point where I look like a slightly larger jockey, I’m not expecting much. The embarrassing part is I will be going to golds gym, which is like the prison yard of working out where only the strong survive. See you in 3 to 5 years.
