Procrastination is fun; crullers are oddly shaped donuts; the weather is cold; sometimes there is a faint smell of natural gas in my room, but my room is too embarrassingly messy for me to ask anyone to come in see if they can smell it, too; a rat took an entire bare chicken breast out of my room the other day and I have no idea how it got the breast out of my room because my door was closed; hot girls are hot; being nocturnal makes for a more intimate day; a drunken chess-playing 50-something-year-old black guy who gets pissed at cocky college aged chess players, yelling at them and telling them to respect people older than them, and randomly tells wise aphorisms that often don't make any sense is awesome; taking the public bus is much more enjoyable than driving; listening to trains pass by at night is relaxing; stray cats somehow manage to survive cold winters; no one reads books any more; people don't talk to strangers any more, which is no fun-- kindergarten is to blame for this; chalk on your fingers makes it hard to snap and makes your skin dry; light bulbs burn out; restaraunts close early; jobs are scarce; running is hard when you are out of shape; and it's hard to know a lot about a lot.

This guy in my hotel was bitching in the lobby about his room being too close to the elevators, as he's a light sleeper. He was worried "all the kids" in this business hotel would be pushing the button to wake him at night. He went on and on, lecturing the hotel staff. I almost went off on him. Did he forget to change his tampon? Seriously, get over yourself, you whiney prick. This is not the fucking Ritz Carlton, it's a Hyatt Place in Plano, TX, for god's sake.

Just sayin'...

Sounds like he needs a course in business travel.

I'll side with the whiney prick.

Anyone with an irrational, generalized hatred of kids is ok in my book...

Oh Tarkus, you and your ambiguous posts...

First week at my new ad sales job. It's cool that it's not an office job, it's outside sales. People aren't there for days, my boss wasn't in yesterday and leaves at like 2. I have been pounding the phones to get appointments. I am meeting with attorneys, chiropractors, auto shops, jewelers, upscale kennels, you name it ... doing very well getting the appointment, now I have to give my sales presentation and make a sale!

I wish, but Google doesn't allow ads involving hard liquor, tobacco, or adult entertainment. So basically all the good stuff...

If these bastards change the channel lineup on my cable one more time I'm going to lose it.

Lose it even more than usual.
