Mumble mumble tired mumble.

I have been lax in my duties boring people with my boring boringness. Unfortunately, I’ve been jerked around a lot lately and that’s taken a lot of my time. It’s just the way it goes. Today was another day taking out the old lath and plaster in a room. This time it was the laundry room. If I had any sense I would have started on it early because I can’t do any laundry until it’s over but I went to the gym and then out to get some lunch before I started. That just meant I didn’t finish until after 8PM. Now I’m even more tired. Hooray. And with … Continue reading

This is a World Destruction

I’ve mentioned before that I get phrases stuck in my head. Unlike religious people who may get sacred texts stuck in their heads, I get bits and pieces of songs and movie scripts. Looks like I’m getting the opportunity to destroy another room this weekend. We’ll see how that goes. Went out to dinner with the boys where we sat around speaking about our feelings. Our feelings about strip clubs is more like it, though we did spend an inordinate amount of time talking about how we’d cook with blueberries. I knew I had more work to do so I had more than one beer. Imran even bought ice cream. … Continue reading

My new fitness goal.

There’s all this talk about fitness goals and i got caught up in it earlier this year when I thought I wanted to get fit enough to be invited to work out at Gym Jones. I really thought this was a good idea for about a week until I realized that it would require me to be a level of meathead that I am unaccustomed to interacting with, much less being. At some point my “FU” reflexes would probably kick in and things would degenerate into an ass-whooping that I would be on the wrong end of. Better to avoid situations like that. So my new fitness goals are much … Continue reading

I was going to post something.

I had this grand plan where I was going to say something but it’s time to move my sister’s blog to different software. All I have to say was that I BEGGED HER TIME AND TIME AGAIN TO QUIT PUTTING SPACES IN HER FILE NAMES and she NEVER LISTENS. So now I have THREE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED LINKS to look through on her blog because of this which is going to take FOREVER. And I thought work was bad. Oh, I just remembered I have two important emails to send out. So much for sleep.

Yeah, I’ve been going on blind dates.

OK, so not really blind dates, but dates with people met on online dating sites. Usually this doesn’t work for me, but somehow after being on OKCupid for three years, I’ve gone out with three people. I never talk about it because what if it works out? HAH. I’m no longer deluding myself. But really, the important thing is WHAT I ATE on my last two blind dates. Both were messy, both were cheeseburgers. A couple of weeks ago I went to Bridgeport Brewery where they cooked my cheeseburger as rare as I wanted (as rare as they could get it) and I think it’s a solid pub burger. But … Continue reading

Well, I’m in a better mood now.

Who knew that Lululemon athletic shirts were so expensive. I’m guessing the answer is JUST ABOUT EVERYONE EXCEPT ME. I’m used to getting free t-shirts (as ugly as hey might be). If you just get enough of them then some of them turn out to look OK. My sister (much more of a shopper than I am) told me that athletic wear was just plain expensive and I should just suck it up. I’m sure I’m going to enjoy wearing the shirts. Someone asked if I looked good in them and my answer, however was, “Who is going to care?” I was in a bad mood when I got home, … Continue reading

Yes, life is still kicking my ass.

It’s just a lot of work at work which is good because that means I probably get to keep my job. Other than that, I got nothing.

What is wrong with me?

A co-worker and I were walking down the hallways today and we both felt like the week had beaten us senseless already. And it was only noon on Tuesday. I think it may be a long week. But of course I’m still up. Does that mean I don’t have the sense that god gave a newt? Well, first I’d have to agree about the concept of “god” and how I probably don’t think of “god” in any sense other than an abstract representation of the universe as a whole and second I’d have to ask what the question was again because right now I’m thinking that the most attractive woman … Continue reading

Demolition man.

I should have said something about finishing my destruction yesterday, but I was too tired to remember. I spent most of the weekend tearing out the lath and plaster in my bathroom because, well, if the contractor does it he has to put in positive pressure airflow and suit up like a spaceman, etc. I haven’t heard of a good reason for it besides the lead paint. The way I figure it is that I’m only going to do this once or twice in my life, not for a living. And now I can say I don’t ever want to do it again, though I probably will. So Sean and … Continue reading

My fingers hurt.

I got stood up at the “Beer n Burgers” thing today but that wasn’t the worst thing that happened to me today. I mean, I got to eat five sliders and taste at least a half-dozen beers today so wandering around by myself wasn’t all that bad. Or all that uncommon so whatever. I didn’t really need to drink any more after going out for Tiff’s birthday and having several beers last night but at least I wasn’t hung over. Not real sure how Tiff ended the night, because people kept buying her shots all night long. Ah to be 26 again. The “Beer n Burgers” thing did take me … Continue reading

BIG PLANS FOR THE WEEKEND.

I’ve just been told that my blog has been a bit of a bummer lately. BIG SURPRISE, but really LATELY? I guess someone just started reading all this crap and didn’t go back very far. My usual plans for the weekend are on hold (and the usual plan was probably to learn more iPhone programming) and I get to assist with the demolition of the bathroom so the contractor can get on with the renovation. Nothing exciting in the downstairs bathroom, just new cabinets and fixtures, but we have to tear out the old tub and the walls to get things going. The shame is that the demolition revealed tile … Continue reading

Best burgers?

One of the local “alternative newspapers” Willamette Week rated the burgers in town and I almost agree with them. Their #1 burger is like my #2. My #1 wasn’t on their list, and some of the things on their top 10 were suspicious (Foster Burger is definitely up and down). In any case, I’m going to list my top three “fancy” burgers and my top three “pub” burgers. For some reason I make a distinction. In the fancy category, my top burger is from Laurelhurst Market. Every time I take the first bite of that burger I remember why I like it so much. The burger on the menu isn’t … Continue reading
