Black MacBook

I bought a new Black MacBook yesterday. I had Apple transfer over the data from my old laptop to my new baby. I just got it back this afternoon. I can not wait to get it home and fondle it.

Adventures in working with Douchy People

Just now I got an urgent call. One of the gentlemen asshats I work with could not find his driver. Mr. Asshat's flight was 45 minutes late, thus the driver was forced to relocate to another spot at the airport where he could idle. Now I'm no world traveler, but I assumed the driver was idling in a lot when I got this most urgent call. Mr. Asshat was furious that his driver was not in baggage claim waiting to take his bags from him and escort him to the car. I calmly suggested he call the car service and ask to be connected to the driver and the driver could then locate Mr. Asshat and all would be right with the world. This logical solution was not acceptable. So I called the driver, got his location- 2nd island near departures- and passed the information along. I was then informed that "the airport is not a beach and I needed to get landmarks and exact locations" and then I was hung up on. Well fuck you Mr. Asshat. That will be the first, last and only time I ever so much as lift a finger beyond my exact job description to help you.

Espresso

Remember like 5 days ago when I was all hearts over the espresso machine in my office. Well I should have thought back to 1996 when I had (and I quote) "the stomach of a 50 yr old man who had drank and smoked his whole life" from too much coffee.

I started drinking like 5 espresso shots a day and boy was that a bad idea. It was free and I was mesmorized by the shiny new toy in our office kitchen.

Lesson to be taken away from this:
Just because it's all you can drink espresso, it doesn't mean you literally have to drink all you can.

Zubaz are back

Remember those awesome horrific pants from the early 90's? Well they are back. Just in case you missed them or your red/white/blue Bills tribute Zuba's are so worn out from wear you need new ones.

Jessica update

So a few things:

1. We got a new Lavazza Espresso machine in out office. I'm currently on espresso number 5. 3 first thing in the morning and 2 right now. I'm guessing probably not the best idea for my ulcer prone stomach, but I'm throwing caution to the wind. I'm also really hyper.

2. I'm doing really well on my new health kick. Seeing people in my family with health problems as they age really makes me re-think my lifestyle.

3. I can not watch Almost Famous or Shop Girl. Both of these movies make me sad and think about Tom. All I can think about is the line when Kate Hudson says "Why doesn't he love me?". It's been almost 1.5 yrs since I last saw Tom and it still makes me sad.

4. My family now exchanges Valentine's Day gifts. My sister sent me a dozen roses and my mom sent me money for gym clothes. I didn't get them anything because I wasn't aware that this was a family gift holiday.

5. Has anyone seen the Gene Simmons sex tape? It's gross, but if you're interested it can be found on fleshbot.com. Don't say I didn't warn you.

effing dudes

Issue #1 with dudes:
So last night it snowed for the first time all winter. It was actually kinda nice. Since it was a wet heavy snow I knew (from my many Buffalo winters dealing with various types of snow) that if I didn't shovel it as it came down it would freeze and be a huge pain to shovel later on. So after work I run some errands, thinking that surely my landlord would shovel by the time I got home at 8pm. Nope. Keep in mind:

1. My landlord is a guy
2. He owns a shovel
3. I rent
4. It's in my lease that he is responsible for ALL snow removal
5. I live/share a sidewalk with TWO guys.

Figuring if I only have to shovel once a year I'd suck it up and do it. I go to shovel and both of my male neighbors watch me out their windows. My landlord lets me borrow his shovel w/o so much as a "thanks for doing the job I'm suppossed to be doing". He actually walks by me with his dogs as I'm shoveling the walk way he uses and doesn't say a thing.

Issue #2 with dudes:
Today some guy looses his phone in a car. Somehow I get pulled into finding it. He tells me the car company is "coach". So I track down the car company "Boston Coach". I find someone to help me and track down the driver with phone. The driver wants to know when to drop off the phone. I interrupt the meeting to give a phone update, as I was asked to do. The guy who lost the phone actually wants me to go wait outside in the pouring rain for an unspecified amount of time for the driver who could be anywhere in Manhattan for this phone. Are you kidding me?!

Moral of my rant: I'm so effing sick of doing shit for dudes who should be doing these things for themselves.

Michael Brown Part II

Ok it gets even better. I did a little bit o research on him and I can not believe the job he now has. Ok, let's just all remember that he basically was responsible for the largest fuck up of disaster recovery in the history of America. So with that on his resume this company decided to hire him and put him in charge of (prepare yourself) MORE DISASTER RECOVERY. Holy shit. Really? Read below (prepare to sit in amazement):

Cotton was acquired by Charys in December 2006. Cotton is a group of disaster recovery firms specializing in fire and water restoration services ranging from initial project assessment and planning, through catastrophe management reconstruction, restoration and environmental remediation. The corporate headquarters are located in Houston, TX.

Wow, just wow.

Celebrity Interaction

Ok so I was going to label this post celebrity sighting, but it's more of a celebrity interaction situation. And by celebrity I mean dude who basically f'd everyone after Hurrican Katrina. Michael Brown is in our office. I had no idea it was actually him until I was in our copy room and someone was like "ooo Michael Brown is flirting with you girls".

So yeah that about the most exciting thing thats happened to me this week.
