Where is the horse today?

Posted by Mick on February 5, 2010 – 8:27 pm

I never liked Christopher Reeve.  It’s been years since I’ve felt comfortable saying that.  Once he fell off that horse, it wasn’t cool to say anything bad about Christopher Reeve.  How can you not like Christopher Reeve?  He’s so courageous. And you couldn’t push it, or you looked like some type of jackass for making fun of the quadriplegic.  It doesn’t matter if you thought he sucked before, once he fell from the horse everyone loved him and if you didn’t, you could just shut your damn mouth, buddy boy.

I’ve always wondered if his horse was trying to take him out.  Maybe his horse knew something we didn’t.  That’s not important right now, though.

I was reminded of my dislike of the courageous Mister Reeve when I came home from work and caught a few minutes of Somewhere In Time on one of the Encore channels.  Has there ever been a sillier time travel movie?  All you need to do go back in time is to surround yourself with old stuff, think real hard, and just believe?  No DeLorean?  No computer banks?  No chamber full of white liquid?  Just Believe.

But hey, maybe you like the movie.  That’s ok.  You are well within your rights to enjoy a bad movie.  I myself have several bad movies that I watch over and over again because, as bad as they are, I still enjoy them.  I didn’t come here to talk smack about Somewhere In Time.

I never liked Christopher Reeve.  Except as Superman.  I actually liked him as Superman.  Because I don’t like Superman.  Never have, never will.  He’s a holier-than-thou douchebag.

This has been a hard week.  Work is really getting me down.  It’s probably more honest of me to say that I’m letting work get me down.  It’s been 10 years, and I’m ready for a change.  It is time for a change.

It’s like I have an inner timer, and every 10 years or so I need a major change.  I spent 11 years in the Mental Health field, and then it was time for a change.  That led me to Austin, and IT. And I’ll stand by that move.  It’s the best thing that ever happened to me.  Austin is where I needed to be.  The computer field is what got me here, and it’s where I met the friends who helped shape my life towards the path I’m on.  And my job is where I met my soul mate.  The job has been good to me.

I’ve been good to the job, as well.  I’m very good at what I do, and I’ve been celebrated two years in a row as one of the best Technical Trainers in the world.  That’s part of the problem.  I’ve peaked.  I’ve reached the top, and now it’s just a struggle to stay there.  There’s no fun in that.  It’s time to move.

Stick around.  Things are going to change.  I can feel it.

And now I’m off to see The Holy Deuce.  See you tomorrow.
