Now Playing Tracks

running myself into the ground

This fall has been busy.  Too busy.  I guess I did it to myself…which means I am a jerk.  To myself.

September: joined a gym, gained a roommate, went to a wedding, went to 2 birthday parties in one night, mom visited, interviewed for a second job, went to a baby shower

October: started second job (2x/week), enrolled in a class, had a date w/ SP and TK, went to a bat mitvah, went to a conference in Chicago

November: still working 2nd job 2x/week, went to something called Cirque of the Dead, family visits, conference in Boston, lost my wallet, went to a fancy schmancy wine tasting event, spoke on a panel, had dates with JW and TK

Plus a bunch of super late dinners or half dinners.  About to do that again.  Happy Thanksgiving.

Bat Kid Cancer Patient Will Make Your Cold Black Heart Grow 3 Sizes

#sfbatkid is the best thing ever.  EVER

the best thing I’ve done at work so far

I have apparently not only impressed the president of my company by the quality of my work but also with my latest endeavor—poetry.  We have this thing called “the honor bar” at work.  It’s an unmanned basket of fruit and snacks accompanied by a piggy bank.  When you take a snack, you put a dollar in the piggy bank (affectionately named Fred).  Visitors were just taking things, and others were getting lazy and not putting money in.  So I wrote a limerick to introduce Fred and suggest that folks pay for their goods.  Here goes:

There once was a piglet named Fred
While guarding the Honor Bar said,
"When you take a snack,
put a buck in my back
so Fred’s friends can always be fed!”

I am now a hero.  It’s sheer poetry!

Wolfram Alpha made a word cloud of my facebook!  VERY COOL! 

My observations:

I use the word “effing” too much. 

"want chris happy," "much work here," "need think time"…this is like stream of consciousness pidgin, no?
