this blogger has just been feelin' wiped out for weeks now. go figure. in the absence of more energy i suppose this will have to pass for blogging.

out with soccer, in with basketball. Loren showed up and played a good game- i he got plenty of in-bounds touches, but only got near the ball a couple times. some of the other kids that have played before look like they could learn to dish it once in a while. i don't think getting a chance to take ONE shot is too much for a player to ask. still, he got in there and boarded it, ran the floor. his team (the Knights) have practiced a grand total of 3 times. they took the entire week of Thanksgiving off, the second week of the practice schedule. then they practiced twice more, now they're skipping practice on monday. they nearly got soundly beaten in their first game, but they came back hard in the second half to only lose by 7 points. not too shabby for playing a team full of showboaters. i got the impression the other coaches have spent more time with their team, and the impression most of the kids on the other team have more experience than many on Loren's team. i hope Loren enjoys it enough to stick with it because i'm certainly impressed by his skills in the time i've played with him.

christmas shopping is begun. i gotta admit i'm still a little stumped about what to do for people this year. it'll work out, it always does.

there's going to be a Christmas party at work in a couple weeks; people will bring food and booze and there should be a pretty decent jam session. gotta make that ;)

kinda been a little antisocial lately. don't really know why; i'm keeping my suspicions to myself.

more when i've got more steam i guess.
