Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls

November 9, 2010 | By | 1 Comment

I go back and forth on Twitter. I really do. Sometimes, I think it’s great. Other times, I wish it would self-implode. I’m so tired of being advertised to, pithy sayings about success and minor details into the lives of people I don’t even know.  Rather than trying to fight it, I joined in with this recent tweet:

Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to

What does that mean? I have no idea. But, at least I’m doing my part in doling out advice. And, if you don’t like it, remember what happened to Andre Rison’s house. Also, my Twitter friend Wendy wrote back, “There go my plans for tomorrow”.  So, people ARE listening.

With the recent time-change, I’m already feeling depressed.  In addition to darkness, here is what we have to look forward to over the next 5 months:

cold, Cold, COLD.

It’s like the time I was driving to a winter time-share place in January.  We got stuck in the snow and had to stop at a hotel only 45 minutes into a 4:30 hour trip.  We turned on the weather channel and the forecast said this:

Sunday Morning: Snow

Sunday Afternoon: Snow

Sunday Evening: Heavy Snow

So… yeah.  It’s always the darkest before it’s totally black.  There is a slight remedy for the darkness thing, though.  You should pick up some Vitamin D 3.  It will really help with the lack of sunlight.  Did you know that 68% of all Americans are Vitamin D deficient? It’s true and 45% of all statistics are made up.  Vitamin D won’t make you happy, but it may make you less unhappy – and that’s something even if it isn’t much.

Back in September, I posted this on Facebook:

I’m thinking of buying a PS3. I wouldn’t play it much, but like how black & shiny it is. I also like that it has a Blu-Ray player. I wouldn’t use it, but am intrigued by the idea of owning something so fancy. I also wouldn’t have a TV to use it with, but like the idea of TV. I also hear that NBA Jam is being re-released. I like the idea of being able to jump really high in the air & hear announcers say funny things.

Well, I went ahead with the purchase and have had my very own PS3 for about a month now.  So far, it has been really great.  I hardly play it all, but love that it just sitting there waiting to be played.  I also enjoy reading reviews for games – even games I don’t care about or am even repulsed by – like Johnny-shooter-man-in-the-face games.  I’ve done so much research on games I have no interest in purchasing or playing.  It’s really great. However, I could purchase and play one of these games I’m not really interested in at any time.  I like the idea of being able to buy a game I don’t like and will never play.  Somehow, there is comfort in that.

I also have the “Move”, which is Playstation’s new version of the Wii.  It has a stick with a ball that lights up.  Sometimes, the ball is pink.  Other times, the ball is blue.  I saw a picture where the ball was yellow.  I’m still not sure where the yellow ball comes into play, because I’ve never seen it.  Still, I know it’s out there and that right there is pretty exciting.

If you know of any non-Johnny-shooterman games that are really good, please let me know.  Just make sure it has a pretty looking cover for me to admire in case I never open it.

Also, Playstation’s motto is:  “It only does everything.”  Can we really be sure about this? Let’s take a closer look.

Can it give haircuts?

Can it let you jump 1,000 feet into the air and do dunks you never thought possible?

Can it keep you company on dark, cold and lonely nights?

As Meatloaf sang, two out of three ain’t bad.
