random thoughts

i was listening to a podcast today where they talked about living in CA and how they could grow pomegranate trees, avocado trees, lemon, apricot, orange, peach and lime trees... i bet an olive tree would even grow in CA... how amazing would that be... i wonder what i could grow at my potential new house...

i had some time between jobs today so i drove by some houses i'd scoped out online.. hmm... they look great on paper, but maybe it's no coincidence why there are about 7 houses for sale in a couple of blocks. while i appreciate a neighborhood where you could leave your doors unlocked, i think a neighborhood that collectively leaves its doors open is not a good sign. neither is the hoodie, baggie jean wearing high school aged kids milling around its streets.

i'm going to look at 8 or 9 places this weekend.. hopefully i will see something that speaks to me. :)

i've been thinking about my next computer. i bought my current laptop when i was still living with JT and JBP and working with LK at FinancialCampus.. that was a good 6 or so years ago... i don't want to jinx it, but it would be unrealistic to think that it will last forever...

my software was not obtained in the legalist of ways, so i am facing needing to buy all new graphics software for it... and if i am going to have to go that route i think i might switch from PC over to a macbook.. but they cost almost twice what a PC costs... however the "timecapsule" is only a few hundred dollars.. and that thing is pretty sweet. i'm still on the fence.. anyone want to convince me one way or the other?

this weekend JPB is coming to visit... we have some fun times planned! i'm excited.
