Catching up

Where the hell does the time go?

I swear to God, I’ve written about 5 blogs in my mind recently, and just never had the time to sit down and actually type something out. Anymore, it’s like I get home, kick off my shoes, drop trow, turn on the TV, and I’m out cold in my LovSac within minutes.

But, for those of you who like to keep track of my life, here’s the lowdown:

Work: Basically, all the folks who took the voluntary buyouts are now gone. This has left my department as the very definition of “bare bones.” So, that means work has basically turned into a sprintfest, which is generally the last thing you want someone in my position to do. And you know what the really sad thing is? My boss has the gall to yell at people to be more productive, but he still sits in his office and does crossword puzzles to keep awake.

Cali: Things are all good in the neighborhood here. I recently met one of her good friends from LA, she met a couple of my friends the other night. No bad reports on either side. And as an added bonus, she still hasn’t tried to stab me in the face. It’s still unnerving that I really don’t have to sleep with one eye open in case she would try and smother me, but I’m getting used to it.

Retribution: My readers from my old myspace blog will remember my days of defiance by signing in to work under assumed names. Well, for a long time, the security guy hadn’t been making us sign in. But a new guy arrived, and he wants us to sign in. He still doesn’t check our IDs though. So, on Saturday, I was back to Fidel Castro. Today, I was Bob Eubanks. Next week will be Bob Barker and/or Alex Trebek. I’m now wondering what genre to tackle next.

Mountain biking: After not riding for the past 3-4 years, getting back into it is tough. My body knows exactly what it wants to do, and how much effort it should be putting into things. However, it’s just not quite capable of it. Frustrating.

Warcraft: Yeah, I started playing WoW again. Not nearly as hardcore as I was, but I do have my warrior up to 77. And I started a Death Knight, but haven’t played beyond the opening zone. But I actually go days without playing, unlike the hardcore days in which if I were home, I was online.

Le Bad Cinema: I was in the mood for some bad movies the other day, and switched to Comcast’s “Free Movie” selection in the “On Demand” section. I found “Gator,” starring Burt Reynolds and Jerry Reed. Dear God, it’s beyond awful. It made me actually question whether the ’70s transpired or not, because these movies just simply couldn’t have been made in my lifetime. If you have the opportunity to watch it, you really need to. Of course, that’s like me farting and asking you to come over and smell it.

And, that’s about it. There will be some rants/parodies coming out … as soon as I’m able to catch a breather. Where does the time go?

And here’s a little Motorhead on The Young Ones, just to show I still care.

    Oooh! Can you do Gene Rayburn one day? Pretty pleeeease?? For meeeee?

    I have no idea why that would amuse me, but it would. You like to amuse your readers, don’t you, Three?

    Do you really have a LoveSac? I know there must be some sort of demand for them, because that store has been open at South Hills Village for a long time, and every time I sit in one there, I think “This is niiiiiice.” But I can’t seem to free up $600 in my bean bag budget, ya know?

    Ken Shabby
    Richard M. Nixon
    Phil McCrackin
    Frank Burst
    Doggy Whimpher,
