Random Ramblings

- I've spent the past two days at a friend's beach cottage catching up on some long-overdue projects. It's been productive and refreshing at the same time.

- For a guilty pleasure last night I rented Shaun of the Dead. Very funny.

- For the first time in my adult life, I feel tempted to not cast a vote in the presidential election. All the bickering and flip-flopping on issues is driving me nuts. I can't see it getting any better over the next 8 months.

- I've been growing fond of the comedy of Demetri Martin. Of course there is the occasional coarse language and sexual humor but far, far less than most comedians.

- Because I've been away, I missed the LOST premiere and am anxious to see it. I started watching in season two and never saw season one which most fans say is crucial.

- Having lunch today with my life-long friend, Chris Schmaltz, who is a youth pastor in the beach community I'm staying in. I don't see him as often as I'd like so I'm looking forward to the time.

I tend to agree with you on the presidential election, Kurt.

I'm a huge fan of Ron Paul, but unfortunately he's not doing so well. If he were to drop out of the race prior to the Pennsylvania primary, I may not vote in that election, either.

Hey Kurt... you definately need to see season1 of LOST. You can watch it online for free at abc.com..

shaun of the dead, very funny... my favorite part is when they are walking through the city, and come across another group that is similar to theirs.

see these movies: "Dan in real life," and "into the wild." And hopefully you have seen the greatest film of all times, "dumb and dumber."
