17 has turned 35

Well, 34 for now, but whatever.

When I was in college eons ago, one year every Friday was tomato soup and grilled cheese day in the cafeteria. Lacking money and homecooked meals on cold days, I looked forward to this event all week. Also, I didn't have any classes after lunch. Enjoying some tomato soup just now, I realized that it has indeed turned very cool outside and I'm also still lacking money and homecooked meals most days. See how the world's all one big circle. Stupid world.

Other than that, well, a lot...but not much. I've been busy at work for the first time in ages. After running from every sort of responsibility you can imagine for the past forever, I'm now officially a Boss. Wheee! It's no different other than now when I'm loud and opinionated, some people have to listen to me. Awesome. But, it gives me something to focus on at work other than which 90s alt. band is my favourite or which songs from the 80s that I absolutely could not live without or what I'm going to make for dinner and will it involve drinking some beer or should dinner time be pushed back to accomodate said drinking or "I can't believe it's only damn Tuesday"....Well, you get the idea.

I prepped my house for the cold weather yesterday, which basically means I just shut the storm windows. Now, I need to buy 2 heaters for the living room. I was planning this 3 weeks ago, but it was warm and they still had fans out in the store. So, being the Super Genius that I am, I forgot about it. Until it was 29 this morning. I guess I thought that if in the middle of October it's 85 degrees then naturally winter just isn't coming.

We were tailgating at a football game the other week and rode in my friend's SUV. He has a kid so naturally his car has a DVD player in the back. I wanted to watch a movie but all he had was "James and the Giant Pickle" which despite its pornish name is a kid's movie. As we're pulling out of the parking lot saying our goodbyes to all our tailgating BFFs, I may or may not have leaned out of the back window to offer this girl a ride along with the chance for her to see J (me) and the Giant Pickle. I'm not sure why she didn't get in with us....She must be gay.

Well, that's it from my corner of the cube...I'm sure somewhere here there's someone that needs to be told what to do.

With the exception of poverty, there's never anything wrong with me that grilled cheese and tomato soup can't fix.

Grilled cheese sandwiches and soup are an awesome combo!

Congratulations on becoming “the man”...have fun keeping everyone down.

Dunno what was wrong with that female sounded like a great pick-up line to me...maybe she was too bookish to get the movie reference.

I'm so glad that "giant pickle" tickled you as well. Maturity will never get either one of us!

MMmmmm. Grilled cheese and tomato soup. Think I just figured out whats for dinner.

And... I may be going out on a limb here, but I remember reading James and the Giant Peach when I was a kid... which may have led to the lesbian's confusion in mistakenly thinking you were a perv?

29!? Where the hell you living, Siberia? Screw that noise.

I swear man, it's like women can't even appreciate a good sexual harassment line anymore. Prudes.
