I feel like I haven't blogged for a week, but it's really only been a few days. So here is a rare life post.
On Friday night my wife and I went to Barbacoa, prior to its opening, my wife refused to step near TexMex. But this place is something special, has always had high quality, and always has some surprises. Plus, it's just down the street from our place (well, one neighborhood away).
On Saturday I woke up and tried to write a post on Agile blogging - using last week (and now this week)'s Microsoft Windows Vista release and Scoble's subsequent blogging cat fight. It ended up being 33% inspired writing and I ended up roundfiling it.
Then I went and test drove some cars and bought some hardware for the closet that will never be f***g finished. Went home, found out it was the wrong stuff and cleaned the house.
Then David Anderson swung by to continue his slow, patient and inexorable quest to make me Scottish. So we went and ate sushi and then stood stage-side to watch Belle and Sabastian, an interesting Scottish group that manages rather successfully to combine britpop, country, 80s disco, new wave and a few other influences into a coherent sound. The only unsettling thing was their bass player looked like David Spade.
After the evening, I was 1.7% more Scottish than when I started.
While I was doing this, my friend John in LA was hanging out with an outlaw billionaire and Kato Kailin - which he called and told me at 1 in the morning.
Sunday was (not) clothes shopping with my wife at Nordstrom. As per usual, we went and bought nothing ... well, she did. I also stopped off and picked up the right hardware for the closet.
We arrived home in the early evening where I tried to blog a longer book review of the most recent Banana Yoshimoto book. Again, inspiration was not a majority player. Sigh.
