FUCK!

Will I sleep tonight? Can I sleep tonight? Morning is coming… If I set my alarm for 9am and fall asleep within the next 15 mins I can get at least 5 hours of sleep before I have to go to work tomorrow.  Ok lay down on pillow hold other pillow off to my side. Morning is coming… God why cant I fall asleep?  God please can you let me get alittle rest tonight? Just for a few hours I cant keep doing this. Morning is coming… Well if I set my alarm to 9:30 and fall asleep in the next 30 mins or so I can get at least 3 hours of sleep. I wont have time for a shower but I really need at least that many hours or I swear I will straight out murder the next truck stop ugly that walks into the store tomorrow. Morning is coming… Please God just let me get Just a few hours of sleep. Morning is coming… DAMNIT they need to make a pillow that I don’t have to flip over and over to keep to the side of my face from getting hot. Its like I spent 7 dollars on a nightly reminder that I can never keep the things that make me happiest. Morning is coming… It is hot I am hot it is fuckin 7am and why the fuck can I not fall asleep? Hey look, the sun… I have turned my pillow over 37 and one half times I have gotten up to drink a glass of water 7 times and due to that I have gotten up another 4 times to take a piss. I look in the mirror every time I go to the bathroom and it is like I can actually see myself falling apart. 3 hours until I have to be at work… I think I might have fallen asleep for a moment at around 5 am or so I cant be sure but one second I was lying there on the fresh cold side of the pillow and the next  moment my pillow was hot and my arm was asleep. 7:53am… UGH… 8:37am SHIT, I better get up If I somehow did manage to fall asleep right now I am absolutely positive that my alarm could not wake me. 1 hour until work… Where the hell is my other sock, this is freakin bullshit every last one of my socks is dirty minus one? Where the fuck is your other half sock? Don’t make me yell at you and scare the dog! I have to say the dog does look abit concerned about my actions at this very moment… Alright I gave up I am now wearing one clean sock one dirty sock jeans no t-shirt just a hooded sweater. I have decided that today will be a no t-shirt day. A decision I soon regret its kinda warm today. Mother Nature must be on the rag im thinking… Did I brush my teeth, no fuck that, I smile and greet new customers with horrid breath and a very unkempt appearance and just zone the fuck out. Excuse me sir can I try this on. I point at the dressing room and don’t even look up. I might not murder anyone today but the customers I assure you are on edge. They come into the store and they can tell it isn’t a good day to purchase their size 40DDD bras. That’s a lot of fabric and quite frankly I aint folding no boulder holders today… Please God can I just sleep.

So here is what is cool about my new job.

Even though I have to work a ton, and there is a lot of work to do. The atmosphere of the place is so much different. For example, my daughter was sick this week and had to stay home from school on Monday. So I brought her to work with me, and everyone is cool with that.

Another kid comes into the office all the time (a kid of one of my co-workers). It is rad, she tries to sneak by my desk every day.  Very ninja like actually, observe picture.

Sneak

So what is so great about the sneaking kiddo.  Well, at the old job if you made the mistake of bringing in you kid, they would be surrounded by a bunch of adoring fans who instantly want to spoil the child.  Because it is the only thing that has happened in their day, that is different than every day that has happened to them in the last 25 years on the job.

I was only there for three years and I was starting to already succumb to that  insanity, and I was going home to my own kids everyday.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it isn’t cool to be excited about kids coming into work.  I’m excited when I see the kids, and people that come up to our office everyday.  It is just that no day is so mundane that I’m incapable of functioning the instant something a little different happens (like sneaking ninja kids).  It is nice to know that I can just enjoy my days here, and that things will never be so boring that the instant I see a child I go ape shit.

So…

Since I’m not constantly bored at work anymore, I find myself not posting as much.  The strange part about it, is that I keep thinking about things that I would like to post about, then get back into work and totally forget.

But I did remember this.  So today, I rode the bus to work for the second time.  And it is pretty cool.  Even though it was freezing cold out thismorning, I just had that nice feeling of doing something good, for the enviroment, and just doing something good in general because I’m not wasting gas from my car, or any of that stuff.  If you don’t really have access to mass transit (as I didn’t for a long time) I will just let you know now, for all the inconveniance (having to wait for the bus to come, and wierd people on the bus).  It is totally worth it.

Just a quick thought.

Hour Six

there is a dumb team building thing that the whole team is supposed to go to.  Normally this would irritate me, but today it is cool because it chews up some of this over long day.

**Edit**

On the way down someone stoped us to tell us it was canceled.  That is pretty normal around these parts, you know corporate communication.

Hour Five

Had one of my exite interviews, it was nice words but seeme dso cold and distant.

 “Good Luck, come see us sometime, laters.”  It was over in five minuets.  I’m finding that it is a lot nicer when people come to my desk to say bye.  They are the people that want to say bye, as opposed to the people that have to say bye.  Savvy?

Hour Four

Technically it is now.  Just doing crap work that doesn’t cause errors to keep myself busy.

Hour Three

Just had a lunch with my whole team.  As much as I dilike a lot of things about my job I know that the one thing I will miss is a lot of the cool people that I work with.

Hour Two

So I went on a walk with my friend David, good times, one of the things that I will miss about working here is the close proximity to David and Jarrod.  Fortunately since most of my communication with them at work is via e-mail, shouldn’t be to hard to still talk to them.

We did talk about Tesla a bit, and I dug into his Wiki again.  That dude was amazing, to bad the band named after him is shite.

Hour One

I am on my last day at work, and I’m doing shit all.  I think I will post every hour, just to keep track of time as it goes by.  Hopefully the next one will be a little more interesting.

New job.

I got a new job and I couldn’t be happier, not only will I no longer work for an evil corporate entitiy, that hasn’t given me a raise in 2 years.  I will now be working with people that are my friends, that I know and that I respect.  This is going to be awesome.  And it will probably afford me more time for things that I like to do in my spare time.

This is what is wrong with the “boomer” generation.

So I work at an insurance company, and as such I’m constantly having to hear about insurance, and retirement, and financial services, and the like.  No big deal.  It has taught me a lot about how I should be saving money, and ways to make my money work for me.  Which in turn has led to me investing in some stocks, and having a 401(K), and some savings (meager though they be).  All of which is good.

Here is the problem.  Boomers don’t want to throw in the towel, as the near retirement they are going through a kind of second midlife crisis.  A lot of them are trying to “embrace technology,” and trying to still be hip as they near retirement age, and a lot of them are getting back in the club and drinking scene, and all that other shit.

What peeves me the most, is that my work as a consequence is going through the same kind of growing pains.  That all came to a head when I heard a speaker talking about retirement, and he actually said that Second Life could be a good tool to use, to determine how you want to spend your retirement.  WTF?  Second Life, where you get around the world that people make up by flying, where you can create things from nothing, where you can be eight feet tall and purple with wings, sounds exactly like how I want to spend retirement.  I guess it makes sense when youc onsider the ammount of LSD a lot of boomers did, but past that, I call a bullshit on that one.  That was a plug that the guy was paid to make, period.  Stop trying to convince me that you are cool, you are not, and the fact that you are a Second Lifer proves it.

Snow

It is snowing pretty bad today, and as a consequence the rumor mill at my cubicle job is going insane.  “I hear they are going to let us off early.”  Yeah right.  I work for a huge corporation, and by the time the wheels get rolling on letting us go home an hour early, it will be a half hour till it is time to go anyways, so who cares. 

So instead of dwelling on it, I’m going to go to lunch in a few and try to think about my cheesy fries and how good they are, instead of how much I could be getting done, if I was at home today.

Sounds like somebody has a case of the Mondays.

You ever have one of those days where you wake up late, and everything falls to shit from there.

I’m totally having that day today.

I normally wake up some time between 5:45 and 6:00 in the morning.  Today I literally slept in until 7.  Got up skipped my shower ran back to the house, and started to get the kids ready.  My mother-in-law calls and tells me that she needs a ride to work.  I look at the clock and realize that I need to be at her house five minuets ago to get her to work, the kids to daycare, then me to work on time. 

I get her to work, the kids to day care, then realize that I needed to go back to my room and get my badge to get into work.  That put me behind an hour.  Since then, the day has just been an irritation.  I wish to God it were over already.  Ugh.

Just for you Steve, I need to watch: 

Falling Down

First God Damn Podcast

All right here it is. This is the first podcast. This was the goal, and hopefully we will be pulling this off every wednesday.

We started off with asking what is up with what is going on this week, but the topic this time was really movies. We get into I Am Legend the book, and the movie (and a point of clarification there are in fact 3 other movie adaptions of I Am Legend, there is a new one from Asylum called I Am Omega, Doyle you are right). That moved into a discussion on vampire movies in general, specifically the difference in tone between I Am Legend the novel and the current trend in vampire movies, to just have vampires kicking ass, then a bit of comparison with the other two adaptions of the book. It also brought up Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, Harry Potter, our waitress Kristen (if she has a myspace I’ll post it next time), and The Mist (which leads into Doyle being an asshole for having not seen The Shawshank Redemption).

There was a long discussion about one scene in Hitman, that didn’t really convince me to see it. There is a good chance that Bobby will be buying a syringe of “knock out juice” as soon as possible. That of course led into a bit of a discussion about xXx. The consensus it that Vin Deisel blows.

We talked a bit about Sweeney Todd. It has now been dubbed The Count of Monte Scissorhands. We also plug Rotten Tomatoes. Gabe clearley states his opinion on Roger Ebert, because of his opinion on Memphis Belle.

We also talked pretty extensively about Starship Troopers the book, and the movie. Bobby really wanted there to be Power Suits in the movie, Doyle and Gabe could just enjoy it for Doogie.

We also had a discussion about some of our favorite movies (or our children as Bobby Likes to think of them). It ranged from Shawshank Redemption, Metropolis, Blade Runner, Memento, Star Wars, American History X, Predator, Rear Window, Pulp Fiction to A good time was had by all. And George Lucas, fuck you.

And we chat a bit about some new movies, Narnia: Prince Caspian, and Rambo.

We also talk about a few of our friends, Steve, Scott, David you missed the chance to defend yourselves.

Watch out there is a bit of racial sluring, and we deffinitly bring up Dog the Bounty Hunter.

MENU:

Bobby: Hot Wings, 1 Blue Moon

Doyle: Cheese Fries, 2 Budweiser

Gabe: Some Cheese Fries, One Hot Wing, 2 Guinness.

We sat at Cables. And the plan is to just do it every Wednesday. We’ll see! It was fun as hell.

There are somethings that you hope to never hear again.

If I never hear about someone having an “Ah Ha Moment,” ever again, I will be satisfied with my life.  Somedays I really hate my job.
