bits and pieces

26 Aug
  • Last night I dreamt that in a brawl with Mexican gangsters, my arm got cut up like a spiral ham by a poison knife.  I was trying to get David Bowie to patch it up while I was participating in a series of races and obstacles he set up to find a sidekick, but we kept getting interrupted by the mutant Mystique who had also gotten cut by a poison knife.  The poison made her think she was a housewife, and she would kill people if they didn’t let her hug them.  I am trying to connect this dream to something, but all I can come up with is the Little Caesar’s pizza I ate that night.
  • People have been keeping my spirits up at work with a series of excellent texts.  Brittney sends me the lyrics to Flight of the Conchords’ ‘Prince Of Parties’, while Tess updates me about the trials of nannying young boys.  Yesterday’s message: “I’ve come to the conclusion that Pokemon early in the morning is too positive.  It’s like rather than being woken up by an alarm clock, I’m being beaten awake by sportsmanship.”
  • I have discovered the use of Pandora, the internet radio site, while I am at work.  This has changed my day entirely.  It has also introduced me to Lily Allen and Mika, who have both enriched my existence.
  • Yesterday I played Mario Kart for the first time in several months.  It was like applying a gentle salve to an open wound.
  • At work, my office has a window with a beautiful view into a common area for all the building’s businesses.  I get to watch people take their lunch breaks and stare morosely into the distance as they eat their prepackaged sandwiches.  Slightly obscured, behind a concrete pillar, is a statue of a beaver.  Because of the angle of this beaver, it is CONSTANTLY STARING AT ME.  More news on this as it develops.

    You’re so lucky you have Pandora! We used to get Pandora in my office until they revamped the network and my IP address began registering as Canadian. 😦

    you should blindfold the beaver, just for fun, when nobody’s looking, and see how long it takes anyone to notice.

    I suggest an elaborate costume for Mr. Beaver. If you have to stare at him all day, he might as well be attractive. I’m sure that Martin over at Daddy-Likey would have some tips.

      Because I live in Oregon.

      And that’s how we roll.
