Do a little dance...
I love tea! Tea, tea, tea! I love tea! Tea, tea, tea!

Make a little love...
I find it amusing how much my interest level in something rises when there is a good video game to go along with it. Case in point: Hockey. There have been 3 times in my life when I've had interest in hockey:

1) Early to mid 90s, when I was playing the now classic NHL games from EA for Sega Genesis.
2) Turn of the new century, when I was playing the NHL games from EA on the PS2 with my boys from Syracuse.
3) Right now, as I've begun playing NHL 2K6 for the PS2 with Mr. Adam down the street.

This most likely has to do with the fact that in playing the video game, I learn the players in the league, and I am all about knowing the players. That's why I don't care for college sports, because there is such a high turnover in players. In the pros, players may change teams, but the turnover rate of retiring to new guys coming in is much slower.

Get down tonight...
Tonight has been spent with idle activity: TV (both on TV and on the computer), video games, and a bit of study. All of this has been secondary to thoughts of finding balance. My life tends to move in waves. Interest in certain things waxes and wanes. I hang out with certain people a lot for a short time, then new people for a short time, and move back and forth. I play certain games for a while, then lose interest, then gain it back. I listen to certain music in cycles. I get into writing, then fall away again. I decide to teach myself Japanese, then don't stick with it. It all goes around and around and around. I want to find some sort of balance. I want to even things out as much as possible, spread out my time more. I don't want to keep moving in these weird gyres that keep encompasing more and more.

I think that's about all for my brain right now. I've had 10 cups of green tea in the last 5 hours (gotta love the big mug.) From my google research, green tea has a little more caffeine than Coke. This could be a long night. I wonder when my vision is going to start shaking. That hasn't happened in a while.

Anyway, time to get back to the Bluths, and I'll leave you all with some classic Buster:
(Buster received a note from someone at a party, but at the time he wasn't wearing his glasses, so he doesn't know it was from his mother's best friend, who is also named Lucille.)

Lucille - Buster is out of control.
Michael - What do you mean, another panic attack?
Buster - Me? No. She's just wigged out because I have a girlfriend.
Lucille - A waiter hands him a note, suddenly he's Steve McQueen. He doesn't even know what she looks like.
Buster - I know she's a brownish area with points! And I know I love her.
Lucille - I'm calling Dr. Miller. (she leaves)
Buster - Okay, I don't know I love her, but I cannot tell you how liberating it is to be with someone who's not mom. Who's nothing like her.
Michael - Yeah, and you're just... you're just jumping right into this, huh?
Buster - Oh, yes! Yes! That's what you do when life hands you a chance to be with someone special. You just grab that... that brownish area by its points, and you don't let go no matter what your mom says!
