Where has the time gone?

Where has the time gone?

They say time is the biggest commodity. Pardon my French, No shit!

Look, last time I looked at this blog was sometime last week. But it did not feel that way, although it is obvious that it is a fact.

Not only that, but June is almost over. Half the year gone!! I do not know about you, but I am pressing the panic button!! Hum, could it be that the globe is rotating faster and making its journey around the sun also a little bit faster? I am not going to use any more deodorant. I am joining the French! The hair mousse is going to the trash can. And tomorrow I am going to look into buying a hybrid car. Not only that, I am planting trees today all over my neighborhood. All the trees that were taken down by Hurricane Wilma last year. See? Thats me taking that picture last October.

So let me evaluate my week to try to feel a little better. Maybe I have not been here to blog, because blogger has been a 'bitch' lately. Is it me, or has everyone been encountering problems loading graphics, and wasting time waiting for blogger to save the work? I can certainly say that kept me away somewhat.

What else happened? OH, my MIAMI HEAT won the NBA Championship under the wonderful play of Dwyane Wade. Former Marquette University star. I was also a star in that university. At least in my own mind. And in case you wanted to know, I did go to see some of the 2006 NBA Finals- games. Something I always wanted to do since a I was a child. I spent a lot of time flaming people on the net, and being flamed also. It was amazing to see how many people were blaming the referees, while we here in were also fed up with the refs. We ended up having a parade here in Miami. And I cannot tell you the amount of money I have spent in buying souvenirs (tshirt, hats,jersey,etc).

I cannot also forget that living in Miami, we can claim that we are the one city in the United States that is directly affected by the 2006 World Cup. That is soccer my dear friends! One thing you learned about World Cup is that if your country is not represented, you root for the teams from your region. While I live in the USA, support the team and wish them well, being a latin boy, and understanding the culture behind the world's most popular sport (and not the US) I root for the underdog latin teams. That does not include Brazil, team that I watch with amazement as they are poetry in motion when it comes to soccer. Funny, this year I think England has the best team. We'll see. David Beckham not only has the best good looking wife (the former Posh Spice) but he also has one of the best shots in soccer. Wondered why they titled the movie "Bend 'em like Beckham"? On a short note, I like English people, but boy do they become rowdy and out of control when it comes to soccer. Its like watching your geeky friend get drunk.

Finally, I started writing what I think is a novel. FINALLY!! Sometimes in your life you just have to let things happen, you do not rush them. Shoot me an email with your email address, and I will send you the first two chapters. I need the feedback, I need to know if you put it down after the first page, or if you want a third chapter. However, it will probably be 2016 when I finish it.

Where does the time go?

Yes, time sure is flying by. Lucky you, to have the first 2 chapters done of your novel. I haven't started mine yet. At the moment, I have notes and drafts.

On the deodorant thing...when I worked in France and took the Metro to work, it was hell. Not only was deodorant in short supply, but I think soap was, too. So, let's not go there.

I don't know if you've seen that cartoon in action, but if not, here's how I had it on my blog.

As for the reading, I'm in the middle of reading three textbooks, so I have my hands full. But, if you want to know about the Renaissance, I'd be happy to elaborate.

Go Heat!
