The Laker game last night seemed familiar somehow. Oh yeah, they sucked last night too. Although, it wasn’t as bad as the last game (at least they didn’t loose by 20 points) They still lost. Don’t misunderstand, if a team tries their hardest and gets beat by a better team, I don’t feel cheated. I feel like my team got beat, not necessarily by a better team. By themselves.
In this case, I just don’t get what team was playing against the Pistons. It didn’t look like the Lakers that I’ve seen before. I guess what it comes down to, as I have said before, is great coaching by Larry Brown. Maybe we can get him for next year if Phil Jackson retires?
Ok, enough about the Lakers, that’s just getting old. Here’s an update on “Operation: Timewarp”. I actually heard back from a few people from the past that I sent a shout out to. Hard to believe. And here’s the really amazing part: they were actually glad to hear from me. Can you believe it?
Maybe I wasn’t as much of a jerk when I was younger as I thought? Mmmm. Or, maybe they have some kind of memory loss? I don’t know. Right now, we are at the stage where they have replied to my inquiries but I have not replied to their reply (confused?). I didn’t actually expect to get any response at all, let alone this soon so I am somewhat at a loss as to what to write back. I need to take a minute and try to say something good. (that will be a good trick).
Of late, I have found myself more interested in the past. Maybe its because every day I get older? It is only very recently that I have started to feel like an adult. I always considered myself a big kid at heart and prided myself (mostly privately) on my ability to stay that way this long. However, it seems like time is finally catching up to me, the sneaky bastard.
Over the years I have been able to avoid all the problems and ailments that I have always associated with “getting older”. Now, I have back pain. And, I am starting to go to bed earlier and get up earlier. Lucky me. At least I don’t have to get up three times in the middle of the night to take a piss. Although I know I have that to look forward to in the future. Again, lucky me.
I guess it could be worse. At least I am mostly still healthy and can still walk around and still have most of my mental functions intact (such as they are). So, all in all, I am lucky. Plus, people from my past want to speak to me. Maybe I’m not such a bad guy after all.
