The missing week

Oh no, I didn’t write any LJ posts at all last week! Here are the high points:

1. I registered for Reddit.com. Reddit is a site where people post stories, links, and images and then other users give feedback on them. The popular posts float to the top, so it’s kind of like crowdsourcing interesting stuff in the world. I don’t know what to do with yet, really; I’m still working things out, but I’ve read and seen some cool stuff so far. I haven’t posted anything myself yet. Here’s my Reddit user page, but there isn’t anything to see there yet. Anyone out there using Reddit? Lemme know.

2. I broke a tire on my car. Hit a curb yesterday on the way to shopping. The “accident” was due to my focusing on a hot dog while driving (note: not a euphemism), so it was actually pretty ignominious. I changed it and put on the spare “donut” in a parking lot, which at least gave me some “adult points” back. I had to buy a new tire today before I went to my sister’s, which is a 45 mile drive one-way and the donut isn’t really suitable for that.

3. Played jjfmi‘s relatively new open mic at Claddagh Irish Pub in Livonia on Wednesday. The place is huge (and not cheap, especially if you want dinner too). It was fun, though I have to admit that I struggled a bit, probably because of being out of practice.

4. Work was work, all four days of it (Monday was the Memorial Day holiday), gym was gym, and I slept a lot in between.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

    I’ve never signed up for Reddit, but it’s definitely all sorts of fun to browse over there. (As you might guess, I check out the Subaru channel over there once in a while. 🙂

      The benefit for me at the moment is, I selected a few folders (subreddits) to follow, so those show up on my front page instead of some I don’t care much for. I’d like to contribute material at some point, assuming that I find anything before other users do. It is pretty fun just to read, though.
