Swimming In My Head…

diving in the deep end…

Ruby Rocks!

Ok…I’m admitting to the world and to the blogosphere that “Ruby” is awesome!  I will admit that I was a complete skeptic about the show since I happen to be in the business of video production.  Initially, I thought it was ‘just another reality’ show.

But then I caught a little bit of an episode that aired last night about the design students that designed a new wardrobe for her.  And do you know what she said?  She said that she hopes that those students will find it with in themselves to consider others in a similar circumstance.

That’s when a single tear fell from my left eye.  I’m not being sarcastic…I’m being totally serious.  It takes a hell of a lot of courage to be on television, in front of those cameras and in front of those students and she did it all with grace and style.

So Ruby…if you ever read this, my hat’s off to ya!  Good luck with your program and I’m rootin’ for ya!

Rockin’ it Florida style…

So it dropped to 27 balmy degrees last night here in Florida.  Our poor palm trees have sheets on them.  I left the northeast to get away from this, but alas global warming is playing an April Fool’s joke early and chillin’ the U.S. like a villain.

What does a Floridian do when it’s that cold here and most of their winter clothes were given to Goodwill in Philadelphia?

Improvise – so, to my friends GBU2 and Sideon…here’s the photos you requested.  If you’d like to use them on the cover of one of your next magazines, just call my agent at the Monte Carlo number (123) 456-7890.

Long johns & cargo shorts - it's the look

Check out – “Margaret and Helen”

I really don’t know how I missed this blog before, Margaret and Helen!

Helen wrote a post about what yesterday meant to her and it is most definitely worth reading: “Yes.  We did.”

I’ve ‘tweeted’ this, now I’ve blogged it and I’m probably going to Facebook it and MySpace it too…but it’s so worth reading and so is the rest of the blog, so check it out.

My new favorite sport

Frozen Tampa

Frozen Tampa

Ok…not so much new, definitely not so much favorite, just couldn’t come up with a good title.

So, I’m writing this post from the frozen tundra that is Tampa, Florida.  And I’m considering renaming this blog “Ice Skating on my Pool” instead of “Swimming in my Head”.

I know that the rest of the country feels little to no sympathy for us Floridians when the temperature dips here, but 36 degrees?  C’mon!  What’s worse?  They’ve said that tonight, we’ll be dropping to well below freezing!

I’ve been productive thus far, and my intent is to maintain that productivity, but my heating system is on overtime because wearing long johns underneath my favorite cargo shorts is not cute as a look to emulate for success in 2009.

I’m just sayin’…

Snow in Tampa?

Of all the ‘tweet’s’ and news feeds and RSS’s and Diggs and Stumbleupons…sorry, I get carried away with all of the information sometimes.

Anyhew, what I was trying to say before my little tangent was that I received a ‘tweet’ this morning that it may possibly snow in Tampa tomorrow.  Why have the last 7 days felt like the first hour of The Day After Tomorrow in this country?

I’m not sure which will be a bigger headline if it happens – the inauguration or the snow.

BTW, to all my ‘blog buddies’ out there that have left recent comments to which I have not replied as of yet, I promise the replies are coming and thank you guys for being the best ‘blog buddies’ a guy can have.
