The last few weeks have been (Interesting –> More often then not, “interesting” means bad. E.g. That’s an “interesting” answer/outfit/haircut/smell. Occasionally, interesting can mean entertaining or weird. E.g. Playing tennis with Robb was “interesting“.) It started few weeks ago when I got a mild cold that quickly changed into a really painful earache. Remember the beginning of Wrath of Khan when they had those ear bugs that went into people’s [e.g. Chekhov] ear, and make them go insane? I’m assuming it was just like that… So it hurt.. a . I took a bunch of pills, which is something new, because I hate pills (except vicodin and codeine) because they do nothing… and as expected, the pills did nothing. So after a couple of rather miserable days of that, I suddenly lost all energy. It was around last weekend, and for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, I didn’t venture much past my bed, and the couch in the living room… and my exercise bike, because I’m a gamer. [This just in: Cubs win! Cubs win!] So by Monday, I was feeling as close to death as you can get while still being alive.. and so I took some different pills when I got to work, and they made me kinda forget what was going on for a while.. not just with the sickness, but with pretty much everything. And by Tuesday evening, I was feeling a good deal better. [This just in: Tiger Woods is very good at golf.]. So that was the sickness portion of the last few weeks. Next was work, which was frustrating.. Lot’s of little frustrating things that kept cropping up, so I could never get to the things I had to get done, in order to work on the other things I needed to get done, so that I could finally work on the things I wanted to get done. In other words, I have a job.
Wednesday was the final time to show up for the Softball meeting. The softball meeting is where we sign up to play softball, learn all the new (read: exact same) rules, etc. Background: I’d been having some problems with my car, where the tires were going flat. So a few days ago I filled the front tire a bit, and since then the car has been wobbling/shaking a bit at higher speeds, and it really annoyed me, so when I got out to go to the softball meeting, I checked the tires, and the driver side rear tire was quite low/flat. So I drove across the street to the gas station, and began to fill it. I filled it a little bit, and then it started to make a really odd noise. So I stopped filling it, and looked at it for a while. it still looked fairly flat… but it was still making the noise. It was like running your hand along an inflated balloon. Anyway, so I sat there, my head maybe a foot away from this tire, listening to it make that strange noise.. thinking “Hrm.. that doesn’t seem like the kind o
!*#! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM !#*!
I just sort of stood there for a while, trying to determine if I was deaf. I couldn’t hear anything.. and then I realized that there was nothing going on. No movement, no wind, no anything. After about 30 seconds of me standing there.. finally a person walked by, and I heard her footsteps… and I thought “Oh, good. I’m not deaf.” Well, I didn’t make it to the softball meeting, but I’m told I’m still on the team so that’s good. Swac showed up (he was going to drive me to the meeting, until I was told I didn’t have to come.) and we changed the tire to the spare… and the next day Mark V.A. got me all set with 2 new tires (The driver’s side front was showing some problems as well. Story over!
Flava Flav, what in the world do you see in Brigitte Nielsen? I mean, you’re not exactly normal, but she… She’s insane.
Played some more basketball withJplant, his brother, Eric, and Swac. That was very fun, and no knee-related problems.
TAG body spray: Your commercials are awful. It takes skill to make AXE body spray commercials seems mildly classy. In short, you should be ashamed of yourself, and I hope you go out of business.
I’m going to try to read a book!!! I have 3 that I ought to have read by now (Franny and Zooey, Harry Potter 5, and The Bourne Identity), but knowing me, I’ll read the Hitchhikers Guide series again instead.
