More home opener stuff
Amy made the comment yesterday (whilst walking back to the office from Target) that she damn-well better not need a jacket for the home opener. Okay, maybe she didn’t swear but in my head it sounded like that. I sure hope it is sunny and 50 degrees outside, and then I would only need my Twins hoodie.
My office has an informal pool started about what the home opener score is. I am still figuring that out in my head but someone guessed 3-2, Twins. Oh, and that Morneausey would hit a home-run.
Baseball to non-baseball segue
Oh, It’s Those Girls have proved yet again that they have awesome taste in music. I remember sharing the love of The Hold Steady, Mika and many other bands over beer/martinis a few months ago. Now I come to find out there’s love for the 22-20’s. Rock on Those Girls, rock on.
Non-baseball (but no less important)
Here is some friendly advice...
Quit while you are ahead
Last week I bought a bag of the World's Best Jelly Beans, "Hawaiian Punch" and had them at my desk. Well, once word got out that I had these pennies from heaven, my cubicle became a highly populated area. Yesterday afternoon my bag dwindled down to about three heaping handfuls. Not wanting to share these last bits I ate them all. Yeah, there is a point when throwing up red jelly beans becomes your worst nightmare. Hence, quit while you’re ahead.
Wisdom from a caffeine addicted, trash talking, slightly judgmental cubicle worker
When sending a work emails do not state your harsh/snotty/mean comment and then end the message with a smiley face. We all know you are just trying to be passive aggressive.
I really wish you could have finished that project for me yesterday but I understand that somethings just get away from you. :)
What you really mean is:
Damn, bitch. Can’t you do anything right?
I am a little ashamed to admit this
I am read the book “Twilight” by Stephanie Meyers and…well, I really liked it. I blame Amy because she had it sitting at her house when I stopped over to take care of her cat. Hey, I can’t just let books lay around, unread. Anyways, so I read the books and I am even a little excited to see the film. However, for the sake of not being jammed in a theater with hundreds of 15 year old girls I will have to wait a while (or go to the ghetto theater downtown that no one goes to.) Huh, Amy, you in?
Music of the Day
“Hallelujah” is a greatly covered song and I love all the versions although the original version by its composer Leonard Cohen holds a special place in my heart.
Here is my favorite cover by Damien Rice
Leonard Cohen – on a television show so it is a little cheesy
Jeff Buckley – a lot of people think this is the original
