My gf bought me a Transformer this weekend…his job today is to stop Final Cut from FRIGGING CRASHING IN THE MIDDLE OF THINGS GGRRRRRRAHAAAAHAHAHSJNFMFBFJDJBDBDHDBDHDJDBDJDJDB
Just in case I haven’t blogged this yet…this is the coffee mug I use at work. It holds like 18oz…AND IT’S A PENGUIN!!!!! Wheeeeeeee!
Because it’s bitch session day apparently… Would someone like to tell me where the fucking logic is in stopping me from performing a task the right way to begin with in favor of a process that adds an additional step, and requires me to put a halt to all productivity to achieve the SAME EXACT RESUSLTS?????!!!
Ok…seriously, it’s 2013, a full 65 years since its invention. No one has any excuse for ineptitude on basic operation of a television!!!!!!!!!!
An interesting development has occured recently. My amazing gf referred me to an old friend of hers who happens to be a documentarian…long story short, I am going to NYC this weekend for a shoot and when’s all said and done I’ll be in the editing room working on an honest to god independent documentary!
Going to hold sone details for now just in case. But I will keep people abreast of the status pf said film.
Wish me luck that this is just one of many freelance gigs to come.
…ok, so it’s not El Nino but it’s a big fricken storm.
I’m trying to be as prepared as I can this time around. You know, hand cranked flash light, candles, book light, full tank of gas, cash…blah blah blah.
Ugh, this is really not what I needed. I was so nearly free. Tomorrow marks the end of “crazy ass sonofabitch Brando working his poor, sexy ass off” with the Gala event that has been the source of nearly all my large amounts of overtime lately.
Could I enjoy that?
Noooooooooooooo. Big ole bitch Sandy has to come waltzing her way up the coast.
Oh well, at least the past few days have been quite enjoyable. Yesterday was Birdemic with B. Billy B. and some work peeps, and then tonight I hung with D-Rock and saw an amazing little film called Cabin in the Woods.
I’m hoping to spend the next month kicking back and indulging myself a little more. Spend more evenings stargazing, a trip to Boston, cigars on the deck, movies, game nights, perhaps continue my attempts to woo a healthy human female…you know, the good life.
But then again, next month, Netflix Instant Watch get’s a looooooooooot of good sh*t…so there’s that.
Just need to survive through Wednesday…hopefully with power, although I’m not even remotely optimistic on that front. Where I’m at, it’s not a matter of “if” I lose power, but rather “for how long,” which is why I’m making and bagging ice in my freezer like a frigging madman. I will NOT lose my delicious pork roast dammit!!
You hear me Sandy???? YOU WILL NOT HAVE MY PORK ROAST!!!!!!
Tomorrow I leave for another business trip…seriously, it seems like that’s all I’ve been doing this year is business trips.
I’ve had the trip to Maryland…
A trip to NYC…
A trip to Maine…
An upcoming trip to Martha’s Vineyard…
This time I’m going to Maine again, which is fine, because I effing love Maine. But still, business trips are always rough to get going. You have to make plans, you have to line up house sitters, you have to make sure you have everything packed, you have to make sure you have toll money or airline regulation toothpaste tubes…it’s a giant pain in the ass.
Right now I sit with my laptop, 3 hours of working from home under my belt with, I’m sure, about two more to go before I’m actually ready to pack away the computer and flash drive. Downstairs in the basement I can hear the hum of the dryer as the only clean pair of jeans I own are currently covering my fanny, and on the stove sits a 1.5 pounds of beef stewing in its own juices so that my house sitter is greeted with a dutch oven full of hearty stew.
In the driveway, my car awaits the 6 hour drive, with new break pads and struts to make the journey. And on the coffee table, my travel companion Kraang stands poised next to an empty water glass holding dual lazer pistols at the ready. The only real question mark left is what shall be my traveling soundtrack?
I should have enough funds for two albums from Amazon…but what to buy? I was thinking of an Apocalyptica, Glitch Mob combo…but I’m open to changes. Currently Megadeth is an acceptable substitution, as is Eisbrecher. We’ll see what my mood is like when I actually go to make the purchase.
For now, it’s time for a dinner break before I hit the books (or in this case, keyboard) once again. Maybe I’ll have good news in the form of some college buddies letting me know they will be able to meet up in Portland Mall. Especially since I bought Stew’s little munchkin a birthday gift and would rather not go through the hassle of mailing it, especially if I’m going to be in the area anyways.
We shall see.
Work is…odd today. A strange mix of praise and continued internal politics that should have ended when the union was so gloriously demolished months ago.
I don’t know what to think…everything that’s going on today has me on edge, building up my stress level needlessly. It’s almost October for godssake…I should be starting to relax finally.
Maybe I should just learn to sit back and give absolutely no f*cks. After all, there’s really nothing I can do about it right? So why worry? Just think about that sweet apple pie you’re getting tonight and perhaps form a gameplan on asking out the girl from work…
And if that doesn’t work, I still have plenty of mojito fixings in the fridge!
I will say this…my workplace is dern pretty after hours
