I'm sorry, but I can't go along with this one.

Sheeps are Fast


Props to Ice Scribe for the tip off.

I got "Bobbing Bobcat" the first time. That's not so great. It told me to get some coffee. Although, I did get one of them in .016 of a second. Cheeky sheeps.

Update: I just managed to earn a "Rocketing Rabbit" rating. I think I need to find something else to do before I waste my whole evening.

Office Rumor Mill

You know the asshole who recently left? Well, I just heard that she actually left a list of people in the office who should NOT be considered to take over her responsibilities.

This says more about her than anyone on that list.


To the max.

Happy Chrismahannukwanzikah!

So, I'm slowly getting all of my decorations up for the holiday. I'm planning on having a couple of dinner parties and my family has finally agreed to allow me to host Christmas this year. I'm stoked.

I bought like five CD's of Christmas music. I have two christmas trees (1 9' tree for the living room, 3' one for someplace else, and a 2' tree that now sits on the corner of my desk here at work.) and lots of garland. I also got the ornaments from my mom and brought them up this weekend. So, it's gonna be cool.

BUT! I have to tell you about the thing I love most: the timer that controls my outdoor lights.

This is a genius invention.

My lights come on at 6:30 and they go off at midnight without me messing with them at all!

I'm totally tempted to get some for the lights indoors, but I also fear that I might become addicted. I could put all my lights on timers so that I don't have to bother any more with flipping switches! How great would that be!?!

So, I'm excited. I am just not excited about having to take all this stuff back down again. I'll cross that bridge when I get there... in a month or so.

Holiday Party Conflict

I was going to have a holiday party this year, but it's really turning into something really, really difficult.

All of my Saturdays from now until Christmas are scheduled out with other parties.

Ok. I'm slow child at play. I just thought of a brilliant idea: New Year's Party!

Now, I need to make sure that I get invitations out soon before folks make plans.

Mark your calendars!

Update: Ok. Invitations sent. I've invited 51 people. If 51 people show up and bring a significant other, there will be WAY too many people in my house. Actually, 51 people by themselves is WAY too many people in my house. Obviously, I expect some people have other plans and will decline, but I am a little bit freaked at how not good I planned that.

On the upside, preparing for this will require some real creativity, which is always good fun.

Worst case scenario: I cancel my party.
Best case scenario: The right number of people (whatever that is) show up at my house.

I had no idea I was friendly with so many people.

Update: I am so smart in spite of being so incredibly stupid in wildly destructive spurts as documented herein. I changed my invitation so that it says that my party is tentative so I can see how many people are interested.

This is the best way because then I can see what this looks like and THEN plan a party if it is even possible!

And I think I was able to change it before anyone, but for maybe two (you know who you are) of my would-be guests even saw it!

Genius plan!

On Running for Two-ish Hours

Most people think that anything more than 100 yards is why God invented cars, but if you decide to pay not heed to this tribal wisdom, there are some things you should know, especially if you're going to run for more than about an hour at a stretch.

1) Protect your nipples. I know. I could have started my list with something less likely to inflame your lusts, but it is for that very reason that I feel the need to warn you of this. The regular, plain, white, cotton undershirts I run in tend to rub my nipples raw. It is not uncommon to see people who run full marathons with bloody splotches on the front of their shirts because of the wear. Consider band-aids or shirts of a smoother texture, or just do like me and suffer sore nipples.

2) Protect your knees and ankles. Do not be a "stomper!" When I am out for a run, I often have to clear my throat when approaching others from behind, that's how quiet I am. If you can hear a steady "thud thud thud" as you trot along, you're going to wind up in pain after 2 hours for sure. I'm not saying that having a nice, easy stride won't still give you some aches and pains, but stomping is both annoying and hurtful.

3) Use the restroom in advance. I'm sorry I have to talk about this, but I strongly recommend that you find a way to inspire a bowel movement BEFORE doing a long distance run. The rythmic motion of running is well known to induce bowel movements for you and unless you want to stop during your race or just poo your pants, make sure you're empty in advance. (Hey! That kind of rhymes!) No, I'm serious. Watch a Marathon sometime and I promise you will notice that some have not heeded my advice and have allowed their dignity to suffer at the expense of the race.

4) Do a race where the crowd is rowdy. Atlanta is not that place. It's much more fun and inspiring when the crowd is into the race and cheering for you. My favorite thing is to give kids five when I run by. The Country Music Marathon in Nashville is an awesome event with a great crowd. I have not been impressed by the crowd in any of the three Atlanta races I've run. New Orleans also wasn't very lively.

5) Eat something. I'm not saying that you lack integrity or anything, but if you don't eat something before the race and then eat something after the race, you just might turn to violence after the race. You could turn on your own children. Fortunately, in your weakened state, you don't pose much of a threat and you're certainly not going to chase anyone down.

6) Drink something. This should go without saying. Don't be a dumbass like Pheidippides.

7) Walk it off. Stretch, too. I know you won't feel like it, but walk around a bit. Stretch. Your feet and legs will thank you. If you can, find someone to give your legs a massage.

I'm sure there are some other things I could say, but that's all I have right now.

Happy running!

Record Breaking and Working Holidays

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Well, first the easy-to-write good news: I beat the two hour mark on my half marathon this morning! Yay! My running buddy and I came in around 1 hour 57, which is five or six minute faster than our previous best. So, I'm pretty proud of that.

The temperature was perfect this morning. We started out in the upper 40's, which sounds bad, but if you're running, it's not. It was the low 60's when we finished, so it was perfect. And unlike last year, there was no rain. The only complaint I have, if you could complain about anything on such a beautiful day, is that the sun was too bright. My eyeballs do not like staring right into our solar system's own little ball of fusion. They're nuts like that.

There were tons of super-cute guys in the race. I ran with one of them for a good eight miles before I realized I had left my running buddy WAY behind me and had to stop. No, I didn't get the digits. He and I only got to the point where we realized we were checking either out before I had to slow down. *sigh*

At this point, I've gone on about the race longer than I had intended when I started, so I'll stop by saying that I was surprised about our starting pace: my running buddy is generally a good pace-setter, but this morning we were cooking along at about a 8:20 mile for the first four miles. Then, she eased up. I kept trucking, of course, because I haven't good sense about these things and I don't pay close enough attention when there's a hot guy trotting along in front of me in tight shorts that perfectly accentuate his... wait. Um.

I forgot what I was saying.

Anyway, I'm at the office now more or less working.

I'll put in my eight hours as usual.

Contrary to the impression you may have about this, my working today is actually a good thing. Due to the meandering plans that plague most of my family gatherings when anyone other than my mom or myself attempts to plan, we're doing Thanksgiving tomorrow.

I managed to arrange with my boss to basically swap the holiday. So, I'm taking tomorrow off instead of today without having to use any of my time off.

If she had not allowed me to do this, there's a good chance I wouldn't have visited with my family today because that would mean that I would have had to drive four hours immediately after my race, eat dinner with them, and hop back in the car and drive back four hours so that I could be here tomorrow.

(I am trying not to use any more time off than I need right now because if I can't keep my job once I start school, the remaining time off I have saved up with turn into dollars.)

So, anyway, I'll probably get lots more done without meetings or phone calls to interrupt me. (Actually, in the past 20 minutes I've already been lots more productive.) And I'll get to spend more time with my family.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This Weekend

Things I want to get done this weekend:

- Begin putting up Christmas decorations
- Watch Harry Potter
- Do the laundry
- Do some work at the office (in progress now)
- Clean up the house a bit
- Homework?
- Catch up on sleep

So, we'll see.

I just ran 10 miles at a smidge over a 9 minute mile pace and I'm a little loopy right now. We'll see how things turn out.

Party guests are moving the couch to make more room.

Hostess: Don't be scared if you see a roach under there. I'm so embarrassed to have to say that.

Flibby: Roaches aren't you're fault. They're the fault of people who invent inadequate nuclear weapons.

Worst Advertising Slogan

I was listening to the radio this morning on my way to work and a commercial for a Chevy dealership came on and the guys said, "Buy American. Not because you ought to but because there's no reason not to."

Ok. So I understand this to mean, "I have no good reason to buy American but at the same time I have no good reason not to buy American."

hmm... Are there any worthwhile products anywhere?

If it weren't for all the fabulous goods and services I've purchased with origins all over the planet, I might seriously start to question the virtue of shopping altogether.

ANTM: Tyra Banks is Out of her Mind

Ok. Did you watch America's Next Top Model tonight?

Are you not just shocked? SHOCKED!?

I will admit that Lisa is not my favorite person. Actually, I hate her. I think she's obnoxious. But you know what? She puts it out there. She is all BAM! BAM! BAM! She's the Emril Lagossi (spelling?) of America's Next Top Model. She knows how to work it. She pushes hard. She isn't that cute on video but she took some crazy good photos.

Meanwhile, Nicole looks like just another Michelle Trachtenberg or Summer Glau but minus their dynamism.

And Jayla. What the hell? Can't she smile? Pout? Lick her lips? SOMETHING with her mouth? Every photo I've seen of her has her and her ginormous eyes and ears (I really shouldn't talk) looking like the love child of a cupie-doll and one of those aliens that are always probing people.

And Nik. Beyonce called and she said that you should 1) find your own look and 2) if you're going to rip someone's look don't take the one from 3 years ago.

Bre. Love you.

Kim, you're hot but you really have to bring it up a notch if you think you're going to win.

In my opinion, Jayla should have been cut tonight, not Lisa.

Lisa pretty much dominated most of the previous photo competitions. And this week's stupid papparazzi theme was totally lame. I think Tyra Banks is overestimating the fame that comes with being "America's Next Top Model."

Of course, I was shocked when they cut Kyle who was super-duper hot. Yeah, maybe Kyle was a little too Maxim-magazine, but still. So hot.

Seriously, the ANTM judges have lost their mind. I know it's not Nigel or Twiggy making these stupid decisions, so it has to be Tyra, Miss Jay, and the guest person each week who do these things.


Completely. In. Sane.

I Feel the Need for Speed

Well, I'm just a few days more than a week away from the Atlanta Half Marathon. I'm hoping to break the 2 hour mark on this one.

After that, I'm giving serious thought to backing away from running a bit to focus on weight training.

This is an item of conflict for me because I love running. For me, it's far easier and more pleasurable than lifting weights. Actually, I hate lifting weights, so sometimes I almost think I'd rather have a sharp stick in the eye than lift weights.

But all for beauty, right?

So, I think I might restrict my running to once or twice a week and doing speed training instead of distance training. My running buddy probably won't like that; she prefers the distance stuff -- even though I can't seem to convince her to do a full marathon yet.

So, I could ease up from running until about mid-February and then start distance training for the Country Music Half in April. On the downside, I was really giving serious thought to doing the full marathon in April with or without my running buddy. If I ease up on distance and wait that long to begin training, I don't see how I would be ready in time.

We'll see. I have a little more than a week to make up my mind.

Dropping Like Flies

Another manager put in notice at the end of last week. I'm not very sad to see this manager go, really. She was very close to Director Dan. In fact, most of Director Dan's brainwashing came directly from her.

Director Dan was often a complete moron and didn't realize when he was being fed a line and this manager was particularly adept at bending Director Dan's malleable ears. In fact, this manager is the one who told Director Dan about my reporting him to Human Resources. And she is the manager who subsequently blatantly misrepresented some of my actions to Director Dan several times which lead to me being put on probation again.

She was also extraordinarily difficult to work with.

So, I'm not really all that sad to see her go.

Tellingly, she was hired by Director Dan at his new company. They both hate Director Dan's boss at Micromega Corp., so I'm not surprised at this move.

Anyway, sort of good news.

The downside to it is the question of whether or not anyone at Micromega Corp is going to realize how much this department is abused. Maybe I'm wrong. I'm told that our attrition rate is lower than that of most departments. Maybe it doesn't really suck to work here.

I don't know how this will turn out in the long run, but I'm glad to see her go.

November 09, 2005


I'm having a dinner party Friday night and I am uncharacteristically unprepared at this point.

1) The guestlist has swollen to about five guests above what I was originally planning. This isn't a bad thing at all, but it's throwing me off of my game here.

2) Is it Wednesday already?

I do not have a menu planned, let alone have I done any shopping.

It's a special challenge here because it's actually planned around a television show, so I can't do anything SUPER complicated. Really, it should be buffet-style, but I've never done that before for an actual meal, so it's somewhat worrisome to me.

Also, I have a mixed crowd. Mixed meaning there are vegetarians coming.

Fortunately, some people are bringing some food and drink, but of course I don't trust them, so I will be making way more food than can be reasonably consumed at this event.

I was talking to a friend of a similar mentality and we agree that this is definitely good stress to have.

It's going to be great but how I get to "great" from here is still a bit mysterious.

I will try to remember to let you all know how it turns out.

Lunch lady: Well, I'm banking on the fact that not many people will be able to come in here and know what your order was, but if you want to give me your name, you can.

Flibby: Well, I DO like the idea of living life on the edge there with you, but I'm going to give you my name just in case. It's Flibby.

Lunch lady: Ok. See you soon.

Flibby: Thanks!

Cracks Me Up

Anyone who knows me well at all knows that I love cartoons.

Well, there's this relatively new cartoon, Madam Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, that is on the Cartoon Network, like, all the time.

It took me a while to get to a point where I could sit through it because I think it's targeting a younger crowd (I think it's for 5 - 8 year olds and I tend to like the 8 and up ones because they can be a little more serious.) and it's also somewhat ugly.

I do not like ugly cartoons. This is the primary reason I can't stand that horrible Ed, Edd, and Eddie show because it's so hideous.

Madam Foster's isn't poorly rendered like that Ed show, but the world is very chaotic and jumbled, so it's confusing and, to me, upsetting.

Well, it's been on several times while I'm working on other things and I've gotten to where I can sort of watch it as long as I can switch my attention to something else while it's on.

Anyway, I said all this to say that it really cracked me up just now because a character showed up with the name Dancey Pantalones.



Dancey Pantlones.

And he challenged one of the other characters to a dance-off.
