i don’t really watch or follow basketball much but tonight’s Bulls vs. Celtics game was awesome.
i saw a James Carville lookalike at “Applebee’s” last night.
ha, i bet you nobody’s ever said that before.
dan: whoa, just like in triple X state of the union
i heard of something called “The Lady’s Brunch Burger” today which, as far as i can tell, is the brainchild of a 700 pound white lady bent on creating a superclass of fat people to rule over. basically, it’s a 1.5 pound hamburger patty topped with bacon and a fried egg which has been sandwiched between two “Krispy Kreme” glazed donuts, pretty much the unhealthiest thing you can think of. its creator, Paula Deen, stated that the recommended serving is “once per lifetime” but having looked her up online, i’d wager that she’s indulged at least a couple dozen times.
and she probably dips it in lard between bites.
does anyone else here think that it should be “NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION”?
does anyone out there have USB flash drives (of any capacity) they’re willing to donate my way? if so, drop me a line. thanks! :)
i noticed just now that, besides a really cheap suit that i’ve only worn three times, i have no real formal wear to speak of. and unless ‘business casual’ can include either sandals, tennis shoes or work boots, i don’t think i can pull that off either. surely this morning’s meeting is a statistical anomaly and i won’t have to scrounge around for nice looking clothes again for a very long time.
i don’t need semi-formal clothes, right?
work boots it is.
i suck at video games.
i remember seeing many bulky, boxy, overweight, underpowered cars like this Mercury Monterey convertible during my childhood and, while i would never buy one, i think i can see the appeal of owning one these days. case in point, the first time i passed by this particular Mercury from the ’60s, there was a shiny Toyota Prius parked next to it voraciously sucking all the fun out of the air.
why drive an anonymous econobox when you can be piloting 30 feet of heavy metal? sure, you’ll get terrible fuel economy and will be constantly overtaken by old ladies in motorized wheelchairs but at least you know that you’re driving something interesting, something with character.
something that’ll break down soon.
i wasn’t really planning on it, but i think i’ve been getting better at using Adobe InDesign lately. the annoying thing is that my quasi-perfectionist tendencies tend to prolong my InDesign sessions and stretch the limits of my patience as i strain my eyes to make sure things are exactly as i want them to be. the resulting frustration gives me a renewed appreciation for graphic designers like Beka who can convert a bunch of text and images into something unique and beautiful.
unfortunately, i’ve still got a long way to go before i can call myself a designer.
