Me 3

Chris Walsh Does Nothing

I'm amused that right now on Facebook, good wrestler/good writer/good guy Mick Foley is doing what he calls "Mick Foley Does Nothing." He tours a lot, not only for his continued wrestling jobs but also because he's branched out over the years into writing (novels, two autobiographies so far, and now comic books) and also into spoken word/comedy. He said, after he'd done the overwhelming San Diego Comic Con -- I've been there, I know it's overwhelming -- that between then and when he'd start doing appearances again, he'd do nothing. Concertedly.

Of course, "nothing" includes family time, because family doesn't stop and he likes being with his family. He's gone with his family to amusement parks. He's friendly enough to say "Hi" to fans if they see him in person, because he doesn't stop being Mick Foley, someone who people have seen on television many, many times. But he's enjoying a break from most of the professional obligations of being Mick Foley.

I should follow that.

I mean follow that for different reasons. Not because I'm not doing anything, but because I'M NOT DOING ANYTHING WORTH BLOGGING ABOUT. And a lot of my thoughts lately that start out as "I should blog about that" thoughts have evolved into "...no, I should wait until I've done something about that other than blogging about that" thoughts.

So! Doing nothing for a bit. I'll update you.

CHRIS WALSH DIDN'T DO NOTHING

I just had a pretty good day. I guess I should note that. *grins*

Today involved getting to eat well (company-sponsored special lunch), having some fun I don't usually have at work (frisbee in a park!) and getting funds. One reason: a gift card. No, two reasons: two gift cards, one I won in a raffle at lunch and one I got as a thank-you for at least a few months (so far) of perfect attendance. And I'll actually get paid a little more fore today than I'd normally get. Scheduling hiccup; would be boring to explain. AND NOT ALL BORING THINGS CAN BE MADE INTERESTING. (I know. That makes me a bad blogger.)

Not quite Ice Cube "it was a good day" levels of "good day," but I'll take this.
