It has been such a long time since I've updated! I don't miss the incredibly boring desk job, but I miss keeping up as much with everyone and reading everyone's blog.
Since my last post I've made 6 trips to Los Angeles, 4 trips to Chicago, 2 more trips to Maine, and trips to the Wisconsin University town of Madison, and Columbus, Ohio. It's been fun, and everything has moved really fast. I can't believe it's already the end of 2005.
I hope everyone has a fantastic time over the holidays!
Coldplay has taken me out of the music doldrums and given me a burst of music energy that I haven't had about a new album in a while :) What did you guys think?
I have been so busy lately with this new job that I forgot about updating this page! It has been a million miles an hour.. Since my last post I've been to Atlantic City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and right now I'm in Maine.. It's been lots of work, but has also been a lot of fun. Cool seeing you
in Balitmore last Wednesday!
A guy here in Maine just told me today he could show me a place that still has forty feet of snow, left over from the winter that is still melting! Crazy stuff. Maine is a really cool place. Kennebunkport is awesome, and the Portland Head Light is aweinspiring.
Late Friday afternoon I was told to tag along with one of our salesmen today and tomorrow in Maryland. I had no idea where I was going, just that I needed to take a flight to Baltimore at a certain time. I flew in this morning to Baltimore, and I was thinking how cool it'd be to hang out downtown, eat some crabcrakes, and do whatever cool things there are to do..
Instead, we rent a car and drive an hour and a half northwest to Hagerstown! Crazy. So right now I am in the sixth floor of my hotel staring at a JCPenney that looks like the outside hasn't been updated since 1970. Incredible fun it is :) It's not that bad though, just not what I expected. Maryland is certainly a beautiful state to drive through!
I passed by the Antietam Battlefield on the way to my hotel; maybe I can check it out on my way out.
My job so far is going great though.. I have other trips to Philadelphia, Atlantic City, and Baltimore scheduled in the next few months, so it should be interesting. And I think those are in the downtown areas in convention centers:)
Anyone heard of the band "PowderFinger"? I just started to listen to them, and I think their album may be pretty cool.
Ever thought of making a song out of default Windows sounds? This guy did.
I can't imagine how bored someone would have to be to do this!
Taken from Numbers 12:6-8: (NIV)
... "When a prophet of the Lord is among you,
I reveal myself to him in visions,
I speak to him in dreams.
But this is not true of my servant Moses;
he is faithful in all my house.
With him I speak face to face,
clearly and not in riddles;
he sees the form of the Lord." ....
If I were a preacher I guess this is one of those passages that I could make a half a dozen sermons out of.. But the random thoughts that pop in my head when I read this:
Moses is such an incredible character in the Bible. He talked to God "face to face", he led God's people out of slavery, and was God's spokesman of sorts to all his people. And yet he was noted for his humility. (Numbers 12:3 ... "more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth"). Wow. That to me is astonishing. The only man on the earth that had talked to God "face to face", and he is also the most humble man on the planet. And to think humility in today's world is considered a weakness. Apparently not in God's eyes!
Any thoughts on the passage or anything you'd like to add or correct in my comments?
I have decided to stop my rambling :)
