I haven’t written on this thing in almost a year, if not longer.
I am not exactly sure why, but I think it’s mostly because I was getting bored with it as I did not feel that I had a whole lot to write about.
The Sharks? This season and postseason were let downs and not very interesting to me so I cannot imagine what it would have been like for the people reading this messy thing I call my blog.
Life? Well, life just isn’t all that interesting. Sure I live in a small town in the Czech Republic, which is, admittedly, a bit of an adventure, but overall my life is pretty mundane. I sleep, I eat, I work, I drink beer, I fool around on the Internet. Sometimes I go on tips. I read. I dabble in writing. Bla bla bla.
So not a whole lot to write about, and not a whole lot of inspiration to find something to write about.
And a good friend of my killed himself last September. I took it hard. Got depressed (like really really depressed, as if this had happened while this was playing as it happened) and didn’t really want to write about that.
I’m not so depressed anymore, but I think I am still trying to process his death. I have a feeling it will be quite a long process, and one which I am not exactly looking forward to.
Umm…let’s see…went to Prague last weekend and hung out with some friends. There was beer and food and walking and general fun all around. I don’t get down there as much as I would like, but that’s where that whole ‘life’ thing comes back around to bite us in the ass and keep us from going where we want when we want. Or maybe it’s ‘we’ who do it to ourselves. Or maybe it’s a combination of the two, or depends on the person. Maybe it doesn’t matter. I’m going with that last one. Oh right, Prague…
I walked around the Troja area by the river and the Zoo. It was beautiful, green and lush and quiet. I asked my friend more than a few times if she was sure we were still in Prague. I was just being a smartass of course, but it seriously did feel as if we had wandered into the forest, kind of like Central Park, a nice green area somewhere in the city.
There is also a Chateau on the trail. We walked around the garden and on the steps but we did not go inside because neither one of us felt like paying, but to be fair we didn’t even go in to see how much it was or if there was an entry fee at all cause that’s how we roll.
There’s also a hedge maze at the palace. We poked our heads in but didn’t delve too far; the wind was kicking up and the rain was on its way. Plus, we were in need of refreshment.
Here is a wikipedia article about the chateau.
And we saw some Cygnets but I didn’t get any pictures of them because I was too lazy.
That’s all for now. I do not know if this post signals a return to blogging for me or not. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
