To my LJ friends: I hope this finds you well. Things continue apace here; my life is stable. I wouldn't call it boring, but not much happens differentlyon a daily basis. All of the mercurial drama from earlier in my life is gone, replaced now by a bedrock of solidity and routine. I've gotten old without really realizing it.
Life:
I'm not dead. Life continues at a frenetic pace- as I noted last time, I don't really take the time any more to post long musings. I've instead become quite happy with the bite-sized bits on Facebook. If you want to look for me there, I shouldn't be too hard to find. Guess what my handle is? Probably not, I'm using my real name. If you have a facebook account and want to friend me, go right ahead- I'm under Brett Murphy.
Today, someone said something about Michael Jackson being dead a year already. I was surprised; it seems like just yesterday everyone had lost their mind. Me, I never knew the man, and he wasn't any great influence in my life.
I nearly broke my ankle at Issequena Falls in SC while I was on vacation. I'm having to wear one of those ankle supports and I've been gimping around for almost a week now, but it is getting better. It's put a real damper on many of my plans though.
Richard moved out on earlier this month. I've had him as a roomate in some capacity forever, but it was time. He's passed his NCLEX and ais new job starts in a couple of weeks. I'm terribly happy for him.

cars:
I've got my RX-7 running again, mostly. I've had the car for over 10 years and I've driven this particular one maybe 10000 miles, at most. It's a beast now, though. All the hard work paid off, it's a pretty good street machine for a 23 year old car.
I'm also building a BMW 321ix for rallycross. I ran my first rallyX a while ago and had a blast. I ran it in my daily driver, though, so I couldn't go quite as all-out as I wanted to, since I was terrified of crashing. I won't have that problem in the BMW.

Kids:
My kids are great, but man... they test my patience.

Hey Amho, it is good to hear from you!
There's something to be said for stability You can always rock your own boat, and it's often more fun than when someone else is doing it? :)

I too was surprised at how long it had been since Mr. Jackson died. But then, they kept it in the news for a very long time, so I think that kept it fresh in our minds.

We still have our RX-8, which is in pretty good condition except for a ding in the front wheel-cover 'hood', which was the result of me and an underground parking lot pillar having a disagreement about its existence. (It won.)

Here, as well. And you know what I've found? I like it so much more.
