what’s happening.

someone got added to my shitlist today

first off, they came up to my desk and got right up in my personal fucking space. I don’t know why they didn’t just stick their tongue in my ear when they were talking to me. Then they asked the ubiquitous “Are you busy”, I playfully answered “Always” and they said totally straightfaced “No you’re not.”

Sorry, you don’t even know me. You don’t know who I am, you don’t know what I do, and you’ve never talked to me. Just because you’re some lifelong prole at this company and you hate your job, don’t come over to me and tell me you know what I’m doing, regardless if I’m joking or not. Maybe if they would have at least had said it differently it might not have set something off in my head, but when you say shit and you’re not joking, you can eat some shit.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I’ve been missing. I got sick last week and I missed some days from work and I’m leaving Thursday again for the weekend.

This past weekend, I saw Watchmen on Friday, which I thought was absolutely awesome. I enjoyed it a lot more than “The Dark Knight” – mostly because TDK was 2 1/2 hours long and it just felt like it kept dragging on and on. Watchmen was actually longer, but because I knew the source material, I could roughly gauge where it was in the film, but I wasn’t bored at all. I also saw Slumdog Millionaire on Sunday, and that was also excellent. It wasn’t what I was expecting but I really enjoyed the way the story was told. Danny Boyle continues to do awesome work and he totally deserved his accolades.

I wish I had more original thought to share but I’m lost.

Maybe I’ll just lay here and sleep for a bit.

So, I was watching the Today show this morning when I was getting ready for work.  I usually listen to the radio or engrave images of spirits on rare parchments before work, but today I happened to be watching Today.

They had a this story about “the sleep diet” which I was very intrigued about since if I could lose weight by sleeping, I’m wasting my time getting up early.  Anyhow, some place did some study where they took a group of about 10 women and had them get at least 7.5 hours of sleep so they could see if it had some effect on weight.  They told these women not to change their eating habits or their activity levels so they could see if sleep was the sole reason behind this change.  So, on the show they had someone official that held the study, 3 women from the study, and DR. NANCY SNEIDERMAN M.D.  talking about this study.

They first talked to a woman who lost 15 pounds during this study by only  sleeping at least 7.5 hours a night.  Oh, and she also changed  her eating habits and started working out more.  Ok… if you recall, they weren’t supposed to change eating habits or activity, but this lady did.  “I felt more refreshed and I felt the need to do more excersize!”  Then DR. NANCY SNEIDERMAN M.D. came on and talked about how yeah, when you get more sleep, you feel more refreshed and you have more energy to do stuff.  Then the talked to these other women who had more energy and weren’t eating all the junk they had been eating before hand.  DR. NANCY SNEIDERMAN M.D. came on and said “Yeah well when you’re tired and stressed out, your body craves more carbs”.

Well fucking duh.  So it sounds like DR. NANCY SNEIDERMAN has all the answers… why did they even do the study?  They could have just asked DR. NANCY SNEIDERMAN all about it!  She’s either obviously a sleep expert, or someone there to provide soundbytes about how great “the sleep diet” is.  Science be damned, just do exactly the opposite of what we tell you to do and when you lose more weight than we thought you would, we’ll credit a fake diet!  I’m getting way to fired up about this for no reason, but that’s just fucking stupid, sorry.  I could see if you got more sleep and you had more energy and you wanted to lift a house off of it’s foundation with your own two hands, but this study was explained that it was bassed on whether or not you’d lose weight if you got more sleep, not if it would make you change your other habits.  That part is common sense, really.

In other news, they changed the timing of the traffic lights on the way to work, and this bothers me.  I had it all timed perfectly so that I would only get stopped by one red light, maaaaaybe two.  Now I get stopped by every single friggin light.

Also, my coworker is trying to convince me that someone is trying to clone the Neaderthal man, and how cruel that is, and what a poor guy that neaderthal man is.  All I could do is smile, laugh nervously and think “please leave me alone, I just want to work.  Don’t kill me, I want to live!”

crazies.

Step into the light, until we meet again.

It’s been a busy week.  I’ve been pretty busy most of the day each day.  I haven’t gotten much of a chance to do much besides work of some sort, but Sunday I was able to see the Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Awesome tour 2009.  I had never been to the Royal Oak Music Theater, and it was a pretty good show.  They came out and did skits, and showed clips of the new season that starts on February 8th or 9th.  In between skits and clips, James Quall, David Liebe Hart and Jason (Salame!) performed.  It was a pretty good show, and a fun night out.

Monday through today has been work.  I’m looking forward to the weekend, and I’m taking Monday off as a mental health day.  Plus I think I’m going to use the Super Bowl as an excuse to get totally wasted and make an ass of myself playing rockband.

I want to find a car charger that I can hook up to a microUSB port that I can connect my Blackberry to that will also output the audio.  I don’t think I’m going to find that.

I have enjoyed one thing this week, and that’s Lost.  So far I think this season has been great, and even if they aren’t answering a lot of questions, I feel like I’m finding out more.  It’s a weird feeling to follow a show for 4 seasons and not really know what the hell is going on, and then finally getting some answers in the 5th season – or at least seeing how the pieces of the puzzle are starting to fall into place.

A new philosophy

I’ve developed a new philosophy- “Ask a stupid question, and you get a stupid answer.”

I’m sick of trying to decipher riddles when people ask me questions.  If you want to know the answer to something, ask a direct question.  If you can’t formulate your thoughts into english that I can understand, give me an example.  If you aren’t getting the answer that you’re looking for, maybe you’re asking the wrong question.

I had a dream before I fell asleep last night.  I went to lay down and before I fell asleep, I was somewhere else for a few seconds.  When I opened my eyes, I was back in my bed.  I can’t remember where I went but it wasn’t home.
