Memorial Day weekend blues

Alright. I have no life! It’s Memorial Day weekend and I’m at home glued to the tube. No, not Youtube. The old school Sony Trinitron kind. Yep, and since Gene Simmons Family Jewels is a repeat tonight, I just flipped the channel to Iron Chef. And life is suddenly back! Yeah, I’m cheap I get extremely entertained by it! So what? Hey, I actually planned on driving up to South Dakota to check out Mount Rushmore. I’ve never been there. But the stinking gas prices, man… it’s just too much to deal with! I mean, I think twice about even just going to the store to get some grocery items, y’know? It’s pathetic!

But right now, I’m just waiting for Good Eats to come on. It’s one of my favorite food shows. And for what it’s worth, another one that I watch all the time is Anthony Bordain’s No Reservation. But that’s tomorrow night! He he! I love that he goes around the world and never acts like a tourist or a chef. He hangs with the locals, eats with them and goes where the tourists don’t. I hope to one day be able to travel like that. Just bring a back-pack and a camera, and dive into the unknown. I’m eyeing on China and India for starters. Italy, maybe. Only because I love the food. But culture is what I’m looking for. To discover. To learn. To appreciate. To accept. To be! Yeah, I wanna travel. I wanna be a traveler, not a tourist! Oh well… someday. one day. Hopefully.

Speaking of travel… next week, I’m driving up to Jackson Hole. Ha! That should do it for now, I guess. It’s about 7 hours drive from Cheyenne, I think. Not too bad. I look forward to it even though it’s work-related. I’ll be there all week for a conference. Although I doubt if I’d be able to swing by Yellowstone even for a short while. Too bad. I’d be busy as heck during the entire event. The weather should be perfect though. I flew out there in January and it was like… uh, negative 25? Or something like that! It was torturous! And you couldn’t see a thing due to white-out conditions. I was just glad I didn’t drive.

Anyhow, I’m rambling. Okay, I was only suppose to take a bathroom break during the commercials but found myself blogging on my way back to the TV. Weird, I know. But that’s me sometimes. Okay, okay… most of the time! Fine! But Iron Chef is back, I think. And it looks like Bobby Flay is about to clean house… so, I gotta go.

But I’m hoping your Memorial Day weekend is much more eventful than mine.
