I was at Target today working, and they were giving me crap. My co-worker thinks one of the other employees was hitting on me (she totally wasn't), and she's been telling people about how funny she thinks it is. Well, anyway, my immediate superior comes up to me, and he's patting me on the back, and he's razzing me, and he says, "C'mon, playa! What's up? I didn't know you had such game." And I respond, (in my most faux-cocky badazz ebonics...which is extremely bad) "Sheeeeeeeeeeeet! I got so much game, they be callin' me Milton Bradley!" Such peals of laughter have never been heard at Target before, and possibly never again! :)

I think I made the situation worse, but I had one of my rare funny moments, and I had to do it!!

I have to get up early! Gotta go. OH! Song of the day...two songs today, because it's a holiday.

1) Black No. 1 by Type O Negative. Such fake goth vampiric metal goodness is most appropriate for Halloween. Plus, I am still scarred from being forced to see the Playgirl pictorial of Peter Steele. :( And, having just now read the Wikipedia entry, good old Peter has converted to Christianity. OK, right there, either the world is soon to end, or Wikipedia is wrong. That's gotta be misinformation!

2) Stutter by Elastica. After having chose my birthday band to enter Rock Block, I found the cd in my collection. Oh my God, I forgot about these lovely ladies! (OK, the drummer's a dude, but he contributes nothing but drums and puke noises) If no one else takes them by next September, they're in! This is an awesome song. I love Elastica. I totally miss them. The Menace was such a bad album. If you want to hear good Elastica, stick with the self-titled first album. Oh! So nice!

Agreed about Elastica's debut. Great stuff.

Yay, a blog!

I've never had a blog (as the people here who know what an absolute technophobe I am will tell you is not surprising), so I guess this is my first step into the wonderful world of blogging. I had food poisoning last night, so my stomach is ready to bust again. Don't eat week old meatloaf is the lesson of the day. Go »

Bonus post: Things I Think I Think

I was replying to Scott's post in Decidedly Undecided, and I started thinking it's nice to be posting again. Even if people were to find my opinions funny or misguided or flat out wrong, if the thought is out there, people can see it, and if I have an error in my thinking, maybe they can help me see things in a different light. I like that. Go »

26-VI-2019 or NUFFLE!!!

Good day. Am I really going to start doing daily mini-blogs just because my co-workers called me out? Apparently. Go »

25-IV-2008(ii) or A Look Inside My Head

I've been obsessing about something I said, and I want to blog about it. Here is what I am now thinking, along with added special what's going on inside my head commentary! All italics are internal monologues/voices in my head, and regular text is the other side of my thinking process. Go »

10-VII-2006 or Thinking too hard

I'm thinking too hard about it. I'm letting my fears get the best of me. I need to relax and just deal with things from a position of confidence, not weakness. Go »

25-IV-2007 or Ze pearl is in ze river

That's a quote from a weird movie I saw back in the day. I think it had Chevy Chase and more vertically challenged people than I can count (including the famous Billy Barty!). The details are sketchy at this point, but I believe there was a secret message to be passed to the person who gave the code phrase, "The pearl is in the river." Go »
