castles burning

Boy I haven't posted in a while.
I guess I feel like a post is a way of getting attention, and I don't want any attention latley

I can only write about pretty average boring shit, but I guess thats similar to the bulk of blog material out there.

Work is fucking work. Some days I hate work. Some days work is fun.
I do notice though that not fucking caring can turn a bad day into an OK one.

It seems like we have a lot of meetings at work, but I'm sure most people can relate to that. Mostly the meetings are drawn out and take more time than they should be worth.
One day we had a meeting that actually was a good one, we got some shit straight that wouldn't have happened otherwise.
So I said that we had just 'popped a wheelie.' Everyone liked that and now its like a phrase.

If someone does something good, we just go 'wheelie!'
But the plant manager hasn't been exposed to the phrase that much, and he isn't used to it.
So I declared a 'wheelie' today in a meeting, but he said that wasn't appropriate in a business environment.

I told him his mom wasn't appropriate in a business environment.

OK so that isn't entirely accurate but at least its representative of the situation.

(2) vignettes

(A) A squirel chewed a hole in one of the screens in my kitchen and ate some hamburger buns and a loaf of bread. I was freaked at first because I didn't see the animal, and thought it was a rat that had got in and eaten stuff up.
Then later that day I caught the squirel back in my kitchen. I told him to get the hell out and he did pretty fast.
Squirells don't react to profanity as fast as say, librarians do.

(B) Last night we were hanging around my truck and at least a few people threw empty beer cans in the back. I got up this morning and went to take them out but someone had allready beaten me to the task, as there were none in the back. Someone had already yanked them.
Sometimes I get woken up by people going through our garbage to get bottles/cans becuase its right outside my bedroom window.

mea culpa OR give kookcity advice

I need advice

Some of my college friends recently got married.
Long story short, I overdrew my bank account at dude's bachelor party (strippers, 'cleanup' fee on limo, etc) and did not buy them a wedding present.

I feel bad about it, becuase it was a damn low thing to do.
And I know they know, that they knew when I shook his hand and hugged her at the reception.

Now I want to make sure everything is on the up and up, but I'm not sure what an appropriate gift/action is.

Any ideas? I saw a really cool motorbike with a sidecar for sale the other day down by Klienhan's.

That probably would make the situation worse though.

Thesis topic: Teaches of Peaches

Toronto was fun.
Metric was good.

Today I mostly ate popsicles.

I was reading my prior post(#30) and it struck me as funny because there was no Plutonium in the 1920's. (Plutonium is pretty much manmade)

Maybe there was some geological rarities, but whatever Plutonium there may have been, it sure as hell wasn't connected to a buttton, or an ego for that matter.

today is my day to go into work early

Sometimes I hate that but sometimes I get enormous clarity of vision being up early.

So I"ll skip out of work early as well, come home, short nap, and go play rock/roll for a few hours.

I think its still a full moon and as you come up over the skyway, the reflection on the lake is somethin else.

PS: it just occurred to me that we live in really crazy times. Like the roaring 20's, only with half the whimsy and twice the plutonium.

missed ted leo

we missed ted leo

Just as I walked into the pavilion they ended

But BSS and B&S were awesome

I feel like I got beat up from sleeping on the ground, and from rafting in some river in Maryland.

I bit a hole in someones raft. (vodka)

Thats as much as I can write. I'm tired and tired of listening to myself talk/think

Ultra fun weekend

human dashboard?

If you had to have a dashboard, like status lights, on your forehead, what lights would you pick?

I 'm going to call it right here: someday body piercings <; status lights < tattoos < orange juice.

I think the first light I'd want is a Bullshit Light.
The Bullshit Light would just start to glow when you catch a whiff of bullshit, like when someone tries to explain how the lottery is a good investment.
Then the Bullshit Light turns on solid when you realize that someone actually believes their bullshit.

The bullshit light starts flashing and melts into a puddle when my boss tries to explain to me why I should work on July 4th.
