Ahhh, it is so damn pretty outside; I want to be out in the sun and the fifty-degree weather rather than stuck in here in my office. But hey, I just had a good lunch and am now writing to you peoples for the remainder of my lunch hour. I would go outside and do this but unfortunately my battery blows and doesn’t hold even ten minutes charge anymore. This quickly kills the sit in the sun and write blog posts idea.
It is okay though, I just open the blinds of my 18 foot window and bask in the glory that shines through. Ohh yes, it is warm, and ohh yes it hurts the shit out of my eyes. I have always been a little sensitive to light. I hate having lights shinning in my eys, it hurts like a mo-fo! If I forget to take sunglasses with me on a trip, I can guarantee I will find a pair and buy them because I can’t take the light like that. The reason I am telling you this is because I was thinking about going to the eye-doc and getting new glasses. I can apparently pick up a prescription here at our PPO and go to Costco and get two pairs for like sixty bucks. How freaking sweet would that be?
I was thinking though, that I would see if I can get a regular pair, and then a pair of sunglasses, but still for a reasonable price for my poor-ass. I wish that they listed some prices and frame designs on their webpage though. I would really like to be able to know what I want to get before I get down there. But it does not appear to be an option for me.
That is how us guys are though, we don’t like to go to the store not knowing what exactly we are going to buy. I think that Shannon Hamilton (played by Ben Affleck) said it best in Mallrats, “I have no respect for people with no shopping agenda.” I think this is how guys usually shop for things. They know what the agenda is, they know that there are certain things that they must pick up and they are going to get just those things (unless the chips/beer aisles tempt them too much). I don’t know about the rest of you, but going to the store stresses me out. I hate to go grocery shopping, there are always loud people toddling around like idiots. I know I bitch a lot about the store, but damn it, every time I go there I just get so angry and it lasts for days. Then of course, during those days I run out of some important food-item and have to go back to the store to begin the cycle again. It is a self-fulfilling fuck-up-fest!
I have no idea where I was going with that, or really why I went there in the first place. I could go back and reread it to see why, but who wants to live in the past, we’re going to plow on and look at the future. Oh yes, the future, where we all will eventually live. I guess though it is not really an eventual thing seeing as the future becomes the present at an alarming rate, this leaves no reason to want for the future as you will be getting the future at every moment.
Ohh that sun is still tempting me through the window. It looks so dang inviting. I can see a lot of good stuff through my window, you know. Right now I am watching a guy sit on a picnic bench smoking a sigarette. I can also see a guy walking down the walk on his cellphone. I have also seen some guys walking and as soon as they saw a group of girls they stopped talking and then after they had passed they all turned and checked the girls out a little bit. It is quite fun to watch people’s actions when they don’t think others are watching. I know that I have said this before, but I just can’t get enough of it!
I was looking at Craigslist a moment ago, I got a little tired of writing for a second and wanted to break it up with a little something else. I saw that yesterday there was a posting made titled “Nice Sofa”; I know that this posting wont be up for a long time, but for those of you that read my blog right now, you get the privilege to see this “nice sofa”. Please click HERE to see the sofa.
So, what do you all think? I think it was probably very nice around 1968. Now, I’m sure they are talking about the condition when they say “nice” but damn! That thing is at the very least, twenty years old. They haven’t used that styling or that pattern for quite a long time. What is really sad though, is I have had couches like that before in my house(s). When I was a kid, I distinctly remember a couch that was that ugly.
What I find very fascinating is that it is selling for seventy dollars! I’m sorry, that is the couch style you put in the yard during your yard sale and sell for about twenty-five bucks to the old lady in the stained sweat-pants and her husband with his dirty ripped Merl Haggard t-shirt tucked his sweat-pants that are hiked up over his beer-gut, monster truck baseball cap and his hiking boots untied, driving the eighty-five Oldsmobile boat-of-a-car packed with three overweight kids covered in dirt and eating McDonalds fries in the back seat…or perhaps I’m an asshole and this is a nice sofa.
I think that the asshole option may be the one really…ohh well, I’m okay with who I am. I am quite surprised that my morning has not been busier, I was expecting to see a lot of students roaming the halls, but I have not seen all that many. Today is Vandal Friday (number one) at UI. It used to be that there was only one VF, now there are four or something. I’m not sure why they decided there should be four, but you know what, it is probably a good idea. This way we may be able to promote more and have higher enrollment rates. That is the only way for a university to make money, enrollment and retention, get those two stats up there and you’re set. Our president has set an initiative to raise those rates pretty damn high in the next five years. I think if UI pulls it off, it is going to be crazy-busy around here with students.
Again, don’t know how I got off on that tangent. But yeah, not too busy around here and everything is pretty good today. Tonight, it is cleaning and relaxing, I can’t freaking wait. Goodbye for now everyone, I am off to start the rest of my day. I will post this thing when I get out of work tonight!
