I don’t want to go back to work today. I just want to be lazy and stay home.
I haven’t written about my weekend, so here I go with that first off.
Friday. Friday. Friday. Friday. Friday, Raz came over and we watched 2019 After the Fall of New York, which I mentioned in a previous post. It wasn’t as good as I expected. Overall it was average. It was a lot like Escape from New York, except they snuck into New York and then they Escaped out of it. It was also a lot like Children of Men, because they had to rescue the last fertile female in the world, I guess. It wasn’t really explained if anything existed outside of New York, so I’m guessing that New York was the big deal. Afterwards, we played some GTA online and were able to kill a Rockstar employee, so we have our Zombie player models now. I was really looking forward to getting the zombie model, but now it’s not as cool as I hoped it would be.
Saturday, we somewhat celebrated Katie’s birthday because her sister was in town and she wouldn’t be able to join us for her actual birthday. We ended up cooking on the grill at her parents house and we had cake and all that stuff. After that, I watched the debacle that was Elite XC on CBS. That was some bullshit. I can understand that Kimbo Slice is their big fighter, because he’s a “huge internet sensation” and they want to hype him up, but that whole event was just bullshit. It was a really sad way to introduce MMA to the mainstream, because they were all shitty controversial stoppages, except for the Gina Corano fight, which was really good. She’s always really good and entertaining. Anyhow, it was garbage.
Sunday we did some shit that was totally unmemorable, because I can’t remember a thing about it. I think I ended up starting the season of Hell’s Kitchen, because I haven’t watched an episode of it yet, and they’re all on my DVR. I think we pretty much lazed around all day. I was going to call Jason or something to see what was up, but I didn’t… because there was something we were supposed to do, but I’m totally blanking on it.
Extending this into the week… Monday I moved into my temporary office, which was nice. It’s quiet and I have a lot more privacy and an actual door. Since the new manager started he’s kept me pretty busy. I don’t report to him, but he’s having me do a lot of work to get him acquainted with the office and the procedures. Even though he’s from our East office, they still do things a lot differently there. It’s a big change for him I’m sure.
Tuesday was Katie’s birthday, and she was happy with the custom Hello Kitty dunny that I had Jenn do for her. We’re actually gonna try to do some of our own now that I’m a little more familiar with the process. I took the day off and she wanted to go out to the casinos. First we went to the MGM Grand and she won about $100, then we decided to leave while we were ahead and went to the Motor City Casino where I won $20. I’m glad we went to the MGM first, because that was so much nicer than Motor City. Everything was nicer, from the Parking Garage, to the setup, to the tables and machines themselves. Motor City had this blue and orange flame carpet, and all the machines and tables were nasty looking. A lot of the machines were really old, and they just didn’t seem to be updated very well. Near one of the bathrooms I smelled something like gasoline, and as I walked closer to the bathroom it turned into a urinal cake smell. Yum! I almost went stir crazy trying to leave the parking structure, because all the signs were conflicting, telling you to turn left to get to the exit, then the signs would disappear, and then when I turned around it told me to turn right where I had already turned left previously, it was stupid.
Anyhow, after dinner last night and cake again, now it’s today, and I have to get back to work.
Oh, and I picked up American Elf by James Kochalka. Even though the forward is by Moby, it might prove to be a decent book.
