The other day I gave a little presentation at work. It was like show and tell for adults. I'm really amazed at how little human beings actually advance from grade school. I know many teens and twentysomethings who are much more mature than most of my middle aged coworkers.

So let's put the corporate world in perspective:

IT guys = chess club
Management = honor...

The only problem with that analogy is that (at least every place I've worked) the IT guys actually have everyone else at their mercy, whereas the chess club has no power at all in grade school. OTOH, management probably has no clue how fucked they would be if IT got the idea to screw them, so maybe it is accurate. tongue

Well, I guess we're all going to have to let this country break itself in order to fix it.

I still don't understand why most people voted for Bush in this election.

I don't think I'll ever understand these people.

I totally have a new crush on a girl at work. I think it is only a matter of a few days before I lose it and ask her out.

I promise to report back here with whatever line she uses to shoot me down.

Wish me luck, I'm goin in!

I couldn't do that. I had a knot in my shoulder. All I could do was pop muscle relaxers and grin. wink

I've been trying to conserve my meager pay for the last few weeks. I've come to the understanding that Everyone in the Universe wants my money. Department stores, restaurants, movie theaters, and bars all eye me as I pass by like kids at a fat camp recently put on a diet. They lick their lips as I walk past with my legal tender.

I knew MMW had a new album coming out but I haven't gotten a chance to get it it yet. these last few storms here have really fucked up my pay so my account is starting to thin a little bit.
As for the storms, i don't know, I just moved here a year ago. i didn't do anything to piss god off. well nothing that big.

This weekend I attended a friend's 25th birthday party. We barhopped through Philly in a rented limo, hitting the Bleu Martini, the Continental and Tiki Bob's. We ended up at Pat's Steaks. Right before we left Tiki Bob's one of our party, who I'd just met earlier that evening, projectile vomited on me.
It's funny, if he'd been...

I will spend the weekend at a pig roast with a bunch of old college friends on a farm. Envy me, dammit!

Had my first date with the South African Hottie Saturday night. It went okay, kinda iffy. On the plus side I got invited back to her apartment "so I won't get lost next time..". The negative was that I was ushered out pretty quickly with a peck goodnight.

I think we don't have much in common. She needs my brains for help with...

Life is odd.

Still working too much and not focusing on the important things in life, like girls and having fun. If I could just convince my landlord and maybe the utility companies to ease up on me for a month or two, I'm sure I could revive my social life. Right now it's on life support.

I'll stop back with some...

I have an incredibly attractive young woman calling me now and again. I've been helping her out with some of her schoolwork. And I think we might be going out on a date next weekend. I'll probably screw it up in a humiliating fashion which I promise to describe in vivid detail here.

She's from South Africa and has the cutest accent...

Hmm... I can't add much to what K_O said, other than that in my (admittedly limited) experience traveling outside the U.S., it gets old REAL fast to have people trying to guess your accent, asking where you're from, etc. So as far as that goes, I recommend taking HER lead, i.e. don't even mention her race, origins and background unless she brings it up first. She may actually be homesick and WANT to talk about how much better the Chinese food is in Johannesburg (well, probably not that particular example), in which case it's fine to play compare-and-contrast... but if she doesn't bring it up, don't you either. Later on you may be able to joke about it... like "The first time I met you I started thinking about what you'd sound like in bed with that cute accent"... but don't get ahead of yourself.

Good luck, buddy! I'm holding you to that promise of a full report.

hahahha of course the willard preacher is there.

what would penn state be without free speech and the willard preacher?

good luck on your date!

I'd like to stick around, post on the boards and be social. But right now it just seems like such a better idea to play video games and blow shit up.

I'll pop back in after I'm done chain smoking and screaming obscenities at my monitor.

See ya.
alpo:

Why can't you post on the boards, chain-smoke, and scream obscenities at the monitor?

That's what I do.

Thats an easy one! Because my friend who created it is an amazingly talented artist with a unique style and a great eye for composition. tongue wink

My nose is whistling.

just thought I'd share.


It's April 15th. Thousands of people will be sending in 3000-3500 dollar checks thru Fedex to my place of work, looking to make their last contribution to their 2003 IRAs.

I will be working non-stop for the next 72 hours. Chow. blackeyed
k_o:

A whistling nose is somewhat of a talent ... if you send all those checks to me ... we'll work out something real nice ...
