Reagan Had It Right...

You know, striking General Motors United Auto Worker member(s), if you aren't satisfied with your job, FIND ANOTHER FUCKING ONE!!!! From my perspective, all the unions do is put other people out and stir up shit -- by providing the pot to stir it in. Selfish, selfish, selfish. While I am sure they have done something good for someone, I have personally never seen a single positive thing come from unions -- only bitching, moaning, and trouble. How nice to be able to call your own shots, huh?

I wish they could fire them the way Reagan fired all the air traffic controllers who went on strike back in 1981. Fuck 'em!!! And we're worried about immigrants taking the jobs we apparently aren't even willing to do ourselves (well, some of us)? Pitiful.

(Pardon me if I seem a bit bitter... It's not completely obvious that I work at a GM dealership and that this strike is putting a major strain on us, is it? Oh, it is obvious? Well...)

recent voicemails from meredith...

  • "Oh my God, do you just NEVER answer your phone after working hours???"
  • "I don't even know why you bothered to buy an iPhone, you never answer the damn thing!"
  • "Are you kidding me? Seriously, are you fucking kidding me!?" [upon reaching my voicemail yet again]

such a prick... (but an entertaining one, at least)

Life... It's All So Exhausting.

Work, eat, sleep, go, go, go... oh, life, you ask so much of me!!!

Been falling behind on my updates again, haven't I? You would think that is a sign of being too busy, and I guess that is partially the case.... but mostly it's that pesky laziness of mine! I think about updating a lot more than I actually do any updating. Story of my life, right?

Anyway... I'm getting by today by listening to live streaming music from various stations around the country/world. Earlier is was Triple J in Australia (until they started playing speed metal, which is not very conducive to background music in an office, you know?) and now it's KEXP in Seattle (though they just played Kanye West. Ugh... But I guess since they followed it up with Violent Femmes, there is a little bit of redemption there)...

On a totally different note, have I mentioned that I loooove this time of year? Cooler weather (maybe it will actually be cooler than 75 degrees this Christmas?) and FOOTBALL!!! And speaking of football, mine & Meredith's fantasy team tied this week -- which was pretty lucky because we really had some major underachievers (Olindo Mare, I would say I'm talking to you, but you were f-ing dropped today for sucking...). Better step up the game, boys! ;) Also, went to watch the pee-wee football team who Jon and his brother are coaching play this past Saturday (7-9 year olds) -- check out Coach Pollard giving his defense some hell (they love it):
Okay, gotta run -- time to go get some semblance of work done... Just one more picture, though... This little beauty was discovered peeking through my fence one morning (actually, there are tons of them). Being the anti-morning person that I am, it's a miracle that I ever even discovered that I have morning glories in my yard since we don't exactly keep the same hours!!! Notice the little ant trying to escape the big, burly human taking its picture:Later taters...

Birthday Hijinks...

Oh, the things that can happen when you're drunk & stupid on your birthday. Proof that 33 years IS too old to play football. While drunk. In the wee hours of the morning.

Well, not if you count straight-to-DL status.

Week 1

My computer at work CRASHED again (yes, again) on the Friday before Labor Day, and I was without it for nearly the entire week. You know, that first of the month? My busiest time at work? Yeah, real fucking convenient. But anyway, the motherboard was finally replaced and, if I can ever get through with all of the Windows updates, I'll be good to go... But that would explain my lack of blogging lately... In other news, and perhaps more importantly, The Royal Bitches (i.e. Meredith & I) won our Week 1 match-up this week in the Wednesday Nighters fantasy football league by beating mmmBallssss (i.e. Matt) 91-67. Nice start to the season! Woo-hoo!!!

Once again, I have to give thanks for the iPhone, for it allowed me to follow along with the scores throughout the day without ever having to leave the couch... except when I was out of beer (but maybe they will come out with an update for that soon?). I don't care if they did drop the price, I still love that damn thing.
