I am a trend setter

In the middle of the night, this past Monday, I got up to go to the bathroom. On my way back to bed I tripped over my sneakers that were sitting next to my side of the bed. I fell back to sleep pretty quickly but ended up having very weird dreams about me standing on a runway at an airport with blinking lights flashing. I tossed and turned but the flashing lights in my dreams would not go away. I finally sat up to shake the dreams off. The flashing did not stop.

I looked over the side of the bed and noticed that my left sneaker, which I posted about here and here, would not stop flashing. The left light-up sneaker is finally working, but, now it won't stop.

Over the past few days people at work have noticed my light up sneakers. I told them all I am a trend setter which has kind of been validated by this article that appeared on MSN.

This reminds me a quote, I read somewhere, and now I will paraphrase it for you. "An Artist is never ahead of his time, it's just that everybody else is far behind."

I remember in Los Angeles, when I was younger, the sneakers with flashing lights in the soles had just come out, and some guy robbed a house and the cops were after him and it was nighttime and he was running through some wooded area and all the cops had to do was follow the blinking lights...note to self...when running from the cops, don't wear blinking lit up shoes. You are a trend setter...I thought these came out in the 80s!??

Gardener shoots teenage boy who raided his perfect lawn

Washington (dpa) - An avid gardener who shot dead a young boy that tread on his newly mowed lawn was sentenced to life in prison in the US state of Ohio, US media reported Thursday.

The 67-year-old pensioner admitted to firing two shotgun rounds at the 15-year-old intruder. He told the court in Batavia, Ohio, that his entire life had revolved around his home and garden work since retiring.

Judge William Walker said during the Wednesday sentencing that he saw no remorse in the retiree.

I don't remember if I've posted here, but I've been enjoying reading your blog for a few months.

I've tagged you for a fun little meme at my blog.
