Mini Status Updates

A bunch of mini status updates. Nothing unusual there.

  • I've started using foursquare to track where I go exploring in each city. No, I will not be cross-posting that to Twitter, Facebook, or anywhere else. Anyone is welcome to friend me there, though.
  • I've also started using Latitude, although I'm very selective about who I friend there.
  • I miss my motorcycle. :-(
  • This homeless guy keeps walking back and forth in front of the coffee shop I'm people watching at.
  • I haven't seen or talked to the landlord family downstairs since I got here two evenings ago. Should I be concerned or attempt to socialize with them? Offer to cook food? These are the questions I ponder.
  • Most of the movies I want to see are no longer in theaters. I'd have to make early day trips into unusual parts of town to see them in a theater now.
  • I was going to see the Prince of Persia movie tonight, but it was only 6pm and I was already tired with 6 hours to go until movie; I returned home to relax and get distracted by a dozen other things.
  • When I was in Seattle I heard this poem before the Poetry Slam.
  • My next scheduled event is Sunday afternoon, a BBQ/etc a couple of hours north of here for Memorial Day. Two days of anything I want (and there is quite a bit I want, heh).

Umm, that's enough for now. Either I'll never get this posted or the list will be way too long. I'm getting distracted by so many things.

Current Mood: okay okay
Current Music: "Sweeter Than Beauty" by "DJ Encore" on "Unique"

Heh ... I signed up for both Foursquare and Latitude, and then discovered that I was the only person for hundreds of miles who had. :)

Yeah.

With foursquare I'm not at all concerned about not having anyone else local. Since I'm traveling around it's a good way to keep track of where I've been.

Latitude is for the close friends who want to know where I'm at, like one of my friends back in Las Vegas. Or for a trusted host if we're trying to sync plans. I've also recently used it as a method to meet up with someone without specifying a specific location to meet at.

I've also heard of 'gowalla' which is a competitor of foursquare.

Latitude is fun but I don't have many people at all on it
