Talking Smack

Things are loosening up a bit at work. Spending a day at the boss's cottage drinking his beer and being on his boat will do that I guess. Today I made my first joke at my boss's expense. For those of you that know me, you know that I rip on people all the time. If I were doing standup, I'd be one of those guys that cracks on the audience no holds barred. My jokes come at someone else's expense most of the time. Today I was writing an email to a client and I asked my boss his opinion on the format. He told me that he didn't approve of an alledged run on sentence at the beginning. I replied, "Well then, what do you recommend Professor Tim?" Tim is my boss's name by the way. He actually joked back and said something like, "You still have much to learn Grasshopper." The fact that he didn't get mad and fire me says to me that he needs more of my critisicm. I'm sort of known already as a jokester in the office, but not to the big man. Now it's on...

Nuances

Back to continuously doing stuff out of habit. Why can't I remember not to eat a sandwich with ketchup on it right after I shave? OW!

Work Sucks

There is no way around it, work sucks. Tomorrow I have to go to work at 9:00 (I usually go in at 7:30 by the way). When I get there I have to drive my car 2 hours north to my boss's cabin. 2 hours! Have you seen gas proces lately?! On top of that, my co-workers told me that it was my job to pick up a 12er on my way to work for the pre-game. What... am I made of money?! Then we are going water skiing up at the cabin and we are gonna sit out all day and shoot the shit. I hate my job. At least I'm getting paid for working tomorrow.

Got the Internet Back

Thank God I finally have an internet connection again. You never realize how much you use the internet every day until you find your self with out access to it. I mean not just writing on blogs or checking on sports scores or emails. You use the internet for other things. Like finding out what those red bumps in your crotch are and why they itch so much, looking at pornography or even getting recipes! Three things that I can honestly say that I've done today since I got the internet back... except for the recipe bit...
