Super Bowl Porn

Is it just me, or are you really hung over from Groundhog day too?

So I really didn't celebrate Groundhog day appropriately, but I spent a night at home mostly by myself. I was pretty proud of myself for not eating like a pig for the Super Bowl, but I made up for it last night when I basically ate a pound of Velveeta Cheese/Rotel Dip with chips for dinner. That was a bad choice. I did have some fun last night playing around with my Drum machine/guitar/bass in the basement. We'll see if this leads to me actually playing music more consistently, but it was fun. I had the drum machine hooked up to my big old bass amp and had some ridiculous drum patterns going ( I was too lazy to remember how to create good ones). Then I played bass/guitar along to the beats. I should really invest in some new patch cords or fix the ones I have because they short out about every 5 seconds. Is this story boring you because it is boring me.

I really liked the Wrestler. I like it more every time I think about it. The message is that you should do what you Love even if it costs you everyone/everything that you love. I don't think I'll follow that advice, but I do enjoy depressing films. Oh and Shit-Damn Marisa Tomei is hot.

I enjoyed my first Trivia Night, but I don't think I have a career in it. I just don't want to learn stuff I don't care about just to be good at Trivia. My sister was quite the expert though. It was a good time.

I got to see Jamie & Oscar which was fun. We just hung out all day on a snowy Sunday in Shrewsbury eating various cheesy meals. I wish that she lived closer, but I actually still see her a few times a year. I feel like Jamie is family ( in a good way).

I have a pretty sweet beard going on right now. It is the biggest beard I have ever had. It is not actually that sweet because it is very spotty, but it is kind of fun at the moment. I'll see if I can take some photos tonight.

We got about 8 inches of snow last Monday-Wednesday. It pretty much kept me trapped in the house because I worked from home on Tuesday & Wednesday. The doggies really enjoyed the snow. It came right up to peanut's armpits so she had to hop around the yard. Hilarious. Wicket is an Arctic bear so she never wants to come in and she lays down in the snow. Ninja also came over one day and ran around with my doggies.

I went to the Whole Foods Store partay at the Skatium on Wednesday. It was fun to rollerskate although the rental skates are TERRIBLE. I had a blister within 5 minutes. It still hurts right now. I also was screwing around and fell on my phone that was in my front pocket. I have a phone shaped bruise on my thigh (not pictured).

I don't know why people in Arizona who saw 10 seconds of Hardcore Porn were so upset. Porn is usually expensive. They are lucky that they don't get charged for that premium service. I hope that my blog is not the first thing that comes up when you search for hardcore porn.

Ok so in case I forgot that I was working in a corporate environment here are 2 emails i have gotten recently. The names and places have been hidden for their protection:



Email 1:

Please mark your calendar today to join us at a retirement celebration for Sally Sims on Thursday, February 12th, at 2:00 pm, in the Conference Room.

Our theme is a "hats off" to Sally and we ask everyone to wear your funkiest hat to the party (those of you with a creative flare can make one). The reception is not a surprise to Sally - the theme is.

Mums the word (and would look great on your hat!)


Email 2:

Sally's last day is fast approaching. I hope you have blocked your calendar to join us at her retirement celebration on Thursday, February 12th, at 2:00 pm, in the Conference Room.

As a reminder, our theme is a "hats off" to Sally and we ask everyone to wear your funkiest hat to the party (those of you with a creative flare can make one). The reception is not a surprise to Sally - the theme is, so shhhhh!

This part is NEW!

We have another surprise in store for Sally. We are creating personalized buttons to pin on to the ribbons of Sally's hat! If you would like to send Sally a short farewell message, please email me or stop by my office to pick up a paper circle to write your message on. Circles need to be returned to me by the end of the day on Feb. 9th. Thanks!




This kind of thing makes me want to drive into the Grand Canyon. I must stop typing because I need to go shopping for a super funky hat.

I agree. I hate that crap. I don't know these people, why do I care?
