: "Movies? Heck, they made jewelry about it."
Originally, I had most cloud information in Google Docs. Then I spread a certain chunk of it into text files in Dropbox for ease of accessing on my then phone. Now I can use either with equal ease, so that isn't driver but I have this third player in the mix. I do more of my work note taking in Evernote, so I don't know if that is the partition.
Like I said, I just have to sit down and really think through my needs and desires and use cases.
Fill out the card, put down some interests. Think through answers to any reasonable question they might ask. If you get invited on stage, do not hesitate to answer anything you might be asked. They don't know the truth of your favorite movie or outdoor activity. Just have an answer ready to go. Be bubbly, smile a lot, clap for everyone, say things as interestingly as you can, be friendly to all the other people on stage and generally behave like the family friendly, bland American that you see every night on the Wheel machine.
DO NOT do what 75% of the people do, which is to fumfarah around, not have a good answer to their favorite soups or best variety of apple. If you say you like to sing, don't spend 3 minutes dithering about whether or not you will sing (I watched this, I knew in 10 seconds he was out but it dragged on FOREVER) but belt the hell out of any song you can come within a mile of the tune. Don't act disappointed when you go bankrupt, don't make any skunk faces, or do anything but be supportive to everyone else playing the game. Don't fail to clap and congratulate the other players when they succeed. You have seen the show, right?
This statement was made on the April 6th Penn's Sunday School. I'm going to dispute that. The very first CD I ever purchased was Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band which was a big deal because it was newly available in the format at that time. The Beatles were very late to CD because of rights issues (no surprise there) and I was very excited to get it.
But here's the thing. I have not listened to that album for pleasure in at least 20 years. It might be 25 years. I don't think at this point it can be listened for pleasure by anyone my age or younger. It requires a nostalgia trip for that, some sort of remembrance of where you were in July 1967. In my case, that was in the womb so I don't have any fond memories of that time.
The songs just plain don't hold up. They sound forced, artificial and nothing I will ever lose myself in again. Not "A Day in the Life", not the title track. There are three songs on there I can still stand: "A Little Help From My Friends", "Good Morning" and what has always been my favorite song on there, "Lovely Rita." I can go to my grave never hearing "Within You, Without You", "Mr. Kite" or "She's Leaving Home" again and be quite happy.
Whenever I see one of those lists that has Sgt Pepper's as the greatest album of all time it is easily dismissed. It's at best the 4th best Beatles album and I personally wouldn't rate it that high.
We're traveling to grampa's house for the holiday weekend and that's always a challenge. I'll try to keep the carb consumption in hand which isn't easy with easter candy everywhere and a punkin dying to cook waffles in the hotel breakfast nook. If I go back up a few pounds, so be it. There is business travel the week after that, but at least I have control over my diet that way and can opt for high protein/ low carb options wherever possible.
