Intelligence

About as busy as I've ever been, just moved again, having a baby in four months right after both of my siblings will be getting married, but I would feel terrible if I didn't pass this along.

When I think about the fact that my reunion is less than 3 years away, I get a bit weirded out. I definitely identify with you there. Being a dad is great, but your life is going to change big time. The first 3 months...no sleep...ever. And you have to be constructive with your wife time. I would like to talk. That would be quite fun. Derek Webb just put out a new album. Good stuff.

The best part: "If sports fans were like certain movie fans, they would hate sports writers, commentators and sports talk hosts for always discussing fine points, quoting statistics and bringing up games and players of the past. If all you want to do is drink beer in the sunshine and watch a ball game, why should some elitist play-by-play announcer bore you with his knowledge? Yet sports fans are proud of their baseball knowledge, and respect commentators who know their stuff."

Ok, one more. People seem to have forgotten that the very definition of entertainment entails you engaging some type of content. If you don't critically consider what is on the screen, then you aren't "doing" entertainment. You're just drooling at a screen, and your brain has checked out.

If I entertain a guest...I don't sit there and drool as I stare at them. I engage them in conversation. Entertainment is ALWAYS two-sided.

It is very weird. I have this whole spiel about why I may possibly not go that I need to run by you to make sure I'm not crazy.
I loved that sports fan comparison.
If you find someone who loves Transformers II, please do what you describe in the third comment and tell me how it goes. This may be what these people want.
