No Bones About It

Thursday, September 29th, 2005

So I’m sitting at home, minding my business on a day off, watching the third episode of “Bones,” when it hits me: oh my god, this show sucks. I think I’ve mentioned before that the show’s really not that great, but I think this episode really sealed it. We have an interesting premise (a forensic […]

The Germs Are Coming! The Germs Are Coming!

Tuesday, September 27th, 2005

I have this annoying thing called a “work ethic.” It caused me to go to work today, despite the fact I wasn’t feeling well. I should have ignored it, because I regretted going. Not only do I feel worse now, but my boss gave me a hard time for coming in. That whole “I had […]

Success and… The Other Kind

Sunday, September 25th, 2005

Steelers lost. I will pay a lot of money for a Tom Brady voodoo doll. On the bright side, I did get my herb plants. I have basil, rosemary, peppermint, and lavender all planted outside in little terra cotta pots. I was impressed that Lowe’s had such a nice selection of herbs, but where are […]

Stuff, and Stuff, and Maybe S’more Stuff Too

I want a rat. I’ve wanted a rat for a long time, but seeing the cutierat at Petsmart sealed it. I know we have four cats in the house, but none of them are really hunter-types. Stanley is a couch potato and a pacifist, Nell would probably just run, Vincent would freak out and hide, […]

Things That Make Me Go ‘Huh?’

Thursday, September 22nd, 2005

It’s my understanding that Al Gore invented the internet to give people something to do while at work. One of the best ways the internet entertains us is through the large number of useful, moronic, insipid, insightful, and laughable “news” articles posted on a daily basis. Here’s my favorite news stories of the day, plucked […]

MPA or Bust

Thursday, September 22nd, 2005

It’s not like I have a lot of time for frivolous pursuits, but here’s another to add to the list. I made a new LiveJournal community for MPA students: MPA Or Bust. I hope it will evolve into a thriving little page full of information and support for Public Administration degree students. And if it […]

Insert Perfunctory Title Here

Monday, September 19th, 2005

So, it’s Monday. And such a happy little Monday it is! The phones are blipping in and out, the boss is searching the internet for a new job, and everyone’s buzzing about recent employee evacuations. It’s fucking skittles and beer over here, lemme tell ya. After all the scuttlebutt over the temp making her hasty […]

Mass Squeeage

Friday, September 16th, 2005

Friday! Or, as I like to call it, Margaritaday! (It used to be Stoliday, then it was Cosmoday, now it’s Margaritaday. I go through stages of drinks. Phases of development, you might say.) Watched “Bones” last night. They are gonna have to do better than that to keep me interested. I liked Kathy Reich’s first […]

Can’t We All Just Get Along??

Thursday, September 15th, 2005

The answer? Hell no. I’ll take Office Politics for $1200, Alex: The temp worker, who had been so abused earlier this week, took an early departure from our company on Wednesday. Apparently she and the station manager were going to have a sit-down chat (which was supposed to be friendly and up-beat, per the temp,) […]

Fear the Bitchzilla. Rawrrrrrr. *stomp on model city* *gnaw on victims* Rawr. Class was alright last night, except this one lady/girl/woman/lass/whatever who sits beside me is almost continually clueless. We did a bunch of in-class exercises last night, which is not my favorite thing in the world, that we are supposed to work on ourselves […]
