There are certain episodes of Seinfeld that make me laugh because it is just too hard to fathom that the events depicted can actually happen. And then there are others that are not just funny, but very true. George Costanza has an episode where he talks about his worlds colliding, and the dangers of that. George doesn't want to bring his girlfriend around his regular friends, because he is scared that he'll lose his sense of individuality if the worlds collide. This past weekend I had a series of worlds collide, and it was uncomfortable.

First I attended a going away dinner for a co-worker/friend of mine, but I brought my lady friend with me, and for various reasons there was tension. Not only was there tension, but there was unspoken tension, which is the worse kind. I managed to salvage a good time, but there was enough tension to make me feel like my worlds had collided. Then, at more then a few points this weekend, there was tension between my ladyfriend and I, and there was also the first official argument, which wasn't so bad, but it wasn't good either. We tried to push thru that, and for the most part I believe we did. And finally, my ex girlfriend was in town this weekend, and her presence collided with my current friend. I suppose I should go into explicit detail and explain each of these examples of world collision, but I really don't feel like it. In all three examples, I think I could have used much better judgment to avoid these situations. But swift changes will be made. I didn't even mention my bout with financial irresponsibility this weekend too. But all these things will be rectified. I'm not necessarily a control freak, but I do like for my life to have some kind of order, and I shall get it by any means necessary.

But the MOST important event to take place this weekend was the start of the football season. I watched two and a half games this weekend, and I purposely avoided all of the pre game hype that went with it. My boy told me I should write about what a buffoon Michael Irvin is, and one day I will. But most of these pregame NFL shoes are ex-football players trying to one up one another. I'd much rather watch the games and draw my own conclusion. And beloved Philadelphia Eagles are 1-0. And Mcnabb looked damn good. There are two more games tonight, and as much as I complained about the Monday Night Football format in a previous blog entry, I am glad there are two games tonight.

I'm lazy today man..I could type out about 3 more pages worth of thoughts, fears, and all that but it just isn't in me. Not today.

No, Maestro . . .don't talk about it . . .those of us who know, already understand . . .all the way up here, and even "I" heard about the tension . . .and I haven't even talked to you. Anyway, as for "by any means necessary," where do you get those photos? They are awesome. See, these are the times when I wish we could sit down and have a really good talk!
