I went down to Atlanta this past weekend to celebrate Lauren's upcoming birthday. It was a very welcome break from reality and recent events, as we had a great time hitting up our favorite haunts (Decatur CD, Bab's, Taqueria del Sol, etc.). I had a lot of time to think today, between taking MARTA (itSMARTA!), chilling at Java Monkey, and waiting at the airport.
I've realized that when I have time to think, I find myself with a lot to say. Or in this case, write. There is a ever-growing list of topics I'd like to blog about, but don't find the time to share. That may be surprising because I'm a fairly quiet guy. I'm guessing the creative/analytical/imaginative side of my brain shuts down when I open my mouth. Go figure.
Anyway, I think I'm going to start a routine "If I were a [blank], I would do [this]" posting to capture my random ideas. Think of them as sort of mad-scientist journal entries. That way when a similar idea is actually acted upon and is part of our society I'll look back and say my favorite phrase in the English language: "I shoulda". It will be very therapeutic I'm sure.
