      My last day at this job is Friday. I've been here for 4 years. I don't do much. To prove that, they've asked me to make a list of the stuff I do, so the next person with this job knows who to contact for vendors, shipping, supplies, and other crap. I call it:

      The Most Fun You Can Have At The Front Desk While Still Wearing Pants

      It hasn't made it past the boss's desk yet, so I don't know how long the title will stay up there at the top of the 12 page document.

      What's that? You'd like to know what it says? Well my friends, here is a sample:


      KITCHEN ACTION FUN TIME

      So much fun to have in the kitchen!

      Coffee Maker
      There are pre-packaged containers for the coffee maker. One package = one pot of coffee.

      Fill the coffee pot with water somewhere between the 10 and 12 cup indicator lines. Pour the water into the top of the coffee maker in the back-right corner (you’ll see numbers mirroring the cup indicator inside). Place the coffee pack into the bucket. (If you are using loose grounds, you can use either a paper filter or the gold plastic filter, but you don’t have to use both at the same time.) Make sure the lid is on the pot and place it on the burner. Make sure the dial is turned to BREW. Flip the switch to ON, and wait. The coffee brews slowly. It will beep a few times when it’s finished. The burner will turn itself off after 4 hours, and will beep when it shuts off, too.

      You can program the coffee maker to go off at a set time. This will be very handy for early morning shoots. Fill the coffee maker as described above. Turn the dial to PROGRAM. Set the time you want the brewer to turn on. Setting the coffee to turn on about 10 to 15 minutes before your call time will give the slow brewer enough of a running start so that you won’t have to wait too long for it to finish. After setting the time, turn the dial to AUTO ON and flick the switch to ON. The coffee maker will turn on at the programmed time and turn off 4 hours later.

      The pot, lid, gold bucket, and the bucket under the gold bucket are all dishwasher safe.

      Segue:

      Dishwasher

      Load the dishwasher throughout the week. Folks should be putting their dirty stuff in there already, but you’ll find a few strays in the sink from time to time. On Friday at the end of the day do a sweep of the office for any cups, spoons, bowls, etc., that are still in the wild. Load up the machine. Pour the detergent in, close the door, and press NORMAL WASH.

      You can do this as you’re on the way out the door on Friday and leave it to run after you’re gone. Monday morning, open up & unload the dishes.

      Plants

      There are no plants in the kitchen, but the watering bucket is there. There is a grey/white plastic jug under the sink. Fill it up with water and visit the plants in Frank and David’s offices. You can do this once a week, generally on Fridays at the end of the day. Talk to David for more details.


      PRETTY FUCKING EXCITING, ISN'T IT????

      Christ. They made me leave instructions on how to run the dishwasher. I really genuinely enjoy the people I work with. It's the work they make me do that has me running to the hills.

      New job on Monday. More news to follow.

      ugh.

      went out drinking with the boys last night. first was meat at The Pub, a huge Bavarian-style restaurant. all 12 of us had some kind of steak. we probably killed 2 cows.

      next was the Built To Spill concert. Camper Van Beethoven opened. they were boring. Built To Spill was great. go buy the new album, you'll enjoy it.

      at the show, shenannigins happened. there was a dude & a chick dressed like pirates. they both had doo-rags on, he had an eye patch, torn up shirt, comedically oversized moustache & goatee, and a skull & crossbones tattoo on his bicep. she had a black & white stripe shirt on & a tattered skirt. funny, right? at one point we watched the pair walk into the ladies room together. i kept warning ladies as they walked up to the bathroom, "Be careful. There's a pirate in there!" but nobody did much about it. I warned one girl, and she kinda looked at me funny before going into the bathroom. 5 seconds later she runs out and stands next to me looking scared. "I thought you were full of shit, and then I heard some dude say "ARRRR!" victory was mine.

      my friend Chris likes to drink, and he likes to smoke. problem is, you can't smoke inside at the club we were at for the concert. but he smoked anyway. the bartenders caught him & told him to put it out. he got surley and 10 minutes later they caught him again. and they threw him out. for smoking. so i turn to the bartender and say, "Look, I'm not looking to start any shit 'cause the guy you are throwing out is my friend, but you're kicking him out for smoking and there is a dude dressed like a pirate in the ladies room for the past 15 minutes and you're not doing anything about it."
      bartender: "There's a guy in the ladies' bathroom?"
      me: "There's a dude dressed like a pirate in the ladies' bathroom!"

      so they scramble and 2 bartenders go into the bathroom and kick the pirate out, telling him if they catch him in the bathroom again they'll kick him out of the show. then the bartender asks me if i needed anything, but i said no, i'm still finishing a beer. then he hands me a beer for free as thanks for ratting out the pirate. victory is mine again!

      we left the show & met up with a friend at a dirty bar across town called Tattoo Moms. good times. $3 tallboys of PBR was the cheapest thing in the house. i should have stuck with Yeungling. PBR fights back too hard.

      after last call, we left Philly & came back to NJ. one of our boys is a DJ at a local gentleman's club, so we went there for some after-hours alcohol. no ladies were dancing, which was fine. who needs that kind of distraction when there is drinking to do? the next 2 hours of drinking was totally free. i think i would have been fine if i didn't have those 2 gin & tonics after all the beer. dude at the bar basically gave me a gin & ice, very little tonic. i got home around 4:30 this morning and had a long conversation with my trash can. i passed out on the couch, all of my earlier victories long forgotton.

      i got up around 3 this afternoon. i've managed to take a shower & drink some water. i don't think i'll be able to do anything else for the rest of the day. at some point i'll have to ride my bike over to the train station to pick up my car. but that can wait. in the mean time, i'm gonna sit on my ass and maybe play some X-Men Legends 2 to get excited for the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance game. you can play as Karnac the Inhuman, Corsair, Ghost Rider, Dr. Strange, and a whole shitload of others. how cool is that???

      (the answer is: very cool.)

      I spent 2 hours after work cleaning my desk area, and I still have more to do next week. I'm quite the pack rat. I found many wonderful things in my desk, including pants and a polo shirt. My best guess: I helped paint the video studio a few years back. I probably changed into painting clothes & stuffed the nice pants & shirt into the desk for safe keeping, then went home in the painting clothes. Fast forward to now, and you have Surprise Pants!!


      ----------

      On November 11 I will be in Toronto for the World Rock Paper Scissors Championships. If you care to join me, details can be found here: WorldRPS.com

      But before that, on October 14 I will be attending the 2006 Pabst Blue Ribbon Rock Paper Scissors Keystone Classic in sunny Philadelphia, the final officially sanctioned event before the World Championships. More details under that link, or at RPSCityLeague.com.

      My team is named David Bowie's Package. My name in the ring is PJ Rhymeswithsausage. Won't you be my neighbor?

      I have a lot of catching up to do. Big changes have happened for me. I shaved off the moustache so that I can eat vanilla ice cream without looking like I just earned $20. I finally got a new job. I start on Oct. 16. I'll be working at a CD & DVD replication plant, the kind of place you go to make 500 copies of your own CD. And there was another change, but I'm having internet issues at work right now, so hopefully tonight after LOST I'll be able to post pics and explain.

      Hello again, Internets. How have you been?

      I will not be at RVBTO, sad to say. I'm too broke for a road trip. Instead, I will be drinking & playing video games all weekend at a bachelor party. (Apparently, Pat & I got married.) So if you see my gamertag online (Lost Focus) this weekend, I'll be utterly smashed. Feel free to drop into the game. Drunken Halo is soooooo much fun!

      for those wondering this is the Alphabet Of Manliness. For more information, you can ask this guy, for there is none more manly than he.

      yes. nothing beats 12 word updates.

      Portland was a hoot & a half. I'll post pics soon. I've been home since 7/28 and just uploades the pics from my computer last night. One might say I'm slow...

      I bought The Alphabet of Manliness for my good friend. He had not heard of it before. STUNNED & AMAZED is a good way to describe his reaction.

      I'll be in & out of here over the next 3 weeks. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much shit to do. I'll try to keep up with y'all when I can.

      On Saturday I'm leaving for a week in Portland, OR. I'll be visiting my sister & my other sister in NJ is coming too. Fun With Siblings! So I'll be off for a while, again. I'm going to try real hard to clear my list before I leave, but I fully expect certain of you bastards to over-fill it while I'm gone.
      -----------------------------------------------------

      My weekend was pretty active. Mostly Sunday: I tried to get some Glamour Shots taken in the mall because the sign said there was a sale- a $30 session was on sale for $7. But it was a bait & switch tactic- the $7 only covered hair, make-up & wardrobe. It did not cover the photography session or the pictures/prints. This was not explained on the sign. Also, the girl I first approached did not explain it to me, either. When I told her I wanted some pictures taken, she just looked at me, backed away, and looked sheepishly at her buff tough-guy manager. She didn't say a word. I wonder why she was so flustered? The manager dude told me that sessions run from $45 to in excess of $300. I told him that the sign is very misleading and that it should be accompanied by a better explination of the sale. I think he was just trying to talk me out of the session. Especially after I told him I wanted something simple & conservative- me in a leather jacket, head tilted, holding a rose. You know, classic Glamour Shots.

      As I left the mall & pulled out onto the highway, I saw my friend Kevin drive past. This was an amazing feat of timing because Kevin had been in Virginia all weekend and was just now on his way back home. Luckily, my friend Andy was in the car with me. And even though the 2 fellows don't know each other very well, Andy was willing to moon Kevin as I sped past him at 80 miles per hour. Because everyone loves pressed ham at 80 mph.

      Then I went to see Pirates 2: Electric Boogaloo. It is long. The entire movie is just a set-up for the 3rd movie. It's a mindless popcorn flick. It's fun & funny at times, sure. But you miss nothing by waiting to rent it. They just want your monies. Also: Keira Knightly's character is a smelly pirate hooker.

      Then I went to see The Flaming Lips. They were playing a free show in Philly, so how could I miss that? Earlier in the day, De La Soul and Bob Mould (the dude from Husker Du and Sugar) also played. But white indie kids don't know what to do at a hip-hop show, and Bob Mould hasn't made a good song in 10 years, so I went late and arrived just in time for the Flaming Lips to take the stage.

      Ho-Lee-Crap. Have you ever seen an explosion of joy? Here it was. Complete with folks dressed as Santa Clause, sexy gals dressed as Sexxy Aliens, gigantic white balloons bouncing in the audience (ranging from 2 feet wide to 6 feet wide), huge-ass confetti cannons, big purple smoke machines, and a 20-foot video screen projecting visions of awesomeness and half-naked ladies. I swear to you, The Flaming Lips is a band you must see live. Sensory Overload doesn't even begin to describe it. Plus- they do great cover songs. The 2nd song in, they played Bohemian Rhapsody. They closed the set with War Pigs. FUCKING WAR PIGS!!! That is some good shit right there, my friends. This show will make you happy. And happy is good.

      Now, I'm off to read up on all of your wacky fantastic lives! I sure do hope the picture thing gets fixed! I sure do hope 40 fucking Alsace journals is going to be worth it!

      did you like, strip down naked, and both stand in front of a mirror? then take notes on who had hair where the other one didn't?
      man. i so missed out on fun in a.c didn't i? i hate you both. in that loving kind of way.

    • amber

      right. so the only difference is tattoos.
      but see at the same time, you COULD have a bajillion tattoos, they're just all covered by hair.
      i'm not saying you're excessively hirsute, i'm just saying you're fucking hairy.
      that's not a bad thing though...at least i don't think so...

      no photos of the tattoo yet...because there is no tattoo, yet.
      waiting for the dude to get back to me. we've decided on a design.
      he just has to draw it up. apparently he loves this type of tattoo, so that's good.
      and i'm pretty sure i've figured out where i want it. just doing a bit of research on the area.
      oh where could it be?! i'll just leave it up to your imagination.

      My only word of advice- never hesitate to do something silly/fun like ask the nurse out. just go for it.

      Yeah i think i've come to that conclusion myself. I've decided that I'm not going to let thing like that slip by any more if I can. I plan on trying not too anyways.
