Forcing my hand

I’m forcing myself to write a blog today.  I’ve had writers block lately, than mixed with the fact that I haven’t really done anything of note lately has made for a lack of post.  Just a warning, this might turn into a “random” blog at any point.  I like for my blogs to be funny and informative, but for some reason I just haven’t felt funny lately.  My Bride would probably say that I’m never funny, but I tend to disagree. 
Something that I’ve learned since getting married, everyone wants to know when you’re having kids.  Seems like an innocent question, but what they’re really asking is, “Are you guys boning with a mission, or still just boning for fun?”  Think about that for a second.  And really why do you want to know what’s happening in my bride and I’s bedroom?  When we’re ready to tell you we’re having a kid, we’ll send you a picture of the kid on a Christmas card. 
On our Honeymoon I finished Dan Brown’s “The Lost Symbol”.  It was a decent enough book, but to me it didn’t come close “Angel’s and Demon’s” or “The DaVanci Code”  I was really excited about this book, especially since so much of it was focused on Washington DC.  Maybe I had just set my expectations too high, I’ve been known to do that.  Has anyone else read these books?  If so, what are your thoughts?

After finishing “The Lost Symbol” I started “Playing for Pizza” by John Grisham.  Now this has been a very enjoyable book.  Being a sports fan I’ve really gotten into it.  The only problem is for some reason I’ve had a hard time finding time to read.  I don’t know what it is with me, but sometimes I’ll just read and read and read with what appears to be endless time, then I’ll get to point where I can’t seem to find a single free second to read a word.  Anyone else go through these ups and downs?  I feel like I’ve only read 5 or 6 books this entire year.  I’ve almost read that many in just one month in years past.  Sometimes I know it’s the book that’s making it so hard for me to read, but I’m really enjoying this book. 

Halloween made me thinking about ghost and ghost hunting.  I really want to be a ghost hunter.  I watch “The Ghost Hunters” on TV and what they do amazes me.  I’ve never had any kind of a run in with a ghost or spirit, so part of me doesn’t believe in such things.  But some of my family members say they've had encounters and you don't think your family is crazy, so you tend to start to believe in such things.  Any of you guys ever had any run ins with ghosts? 
I know this blog wasn’t funny, probably wasn’t entertaining, and posed a lot of questions.  But I thank you guys for reading my forced blog post.  I need to find a blog a day thing.  Maybe I’ll get my google on and see what I find out there in the vast interwebs to keep the posts coming. 


  1. Cas, I love Dan Brown but his DaVinci Code was my favorite one! I couldn't put it down! I agree, Lost Symbol was not as good. John Sanford's newest one is pretty good too.

  2. Hey, Ghostbuster. Are you having a little Casper yet? Hurry up already! ;)
