Top 5 list of the week
Given that it’s Thanksgiving week. I’m going to list off the top 5 things I’m thankful for.
Inviting the HR employee home with me for...
Me: Hey bud. I have something very very serious to ask you.
HR employee: Yes?
Me: Will you join my family and me for Thanksgiving dinner?
HR employee: What? I don't know your family.
Me: It'd be a great opportunity to meet them.
HR employee: I can't I'm volunteering. Something you would know nothing about.
Me: I volunteer.
HR employee: BS. You don't. I couldn't see you helping anyone.
Me: I pay my taxes, which volunteers my money towards helping others (be it, driving on better roads, going to school, etc.)
HR employee: You don't volunteer your money towards anything when you pay taxes.
Me: So do you just want to head out after work on Wednesday or leave Thursday morning. It's up to you.
HR employee: Dude, no. That is weird.
Newsweek convo with Jean-Claude Van Damme
Don’t call him washed up—at 48, Jean-Claude Van Damme is back with a new indy film called “JCVD,” about … himself. He’s passionate about it, and about so much else. He spoke to Sarah Ball: What are you doing in Thailand? I’ve been in the cutting room all night, working on a new film I’m directing called “Full Love.” How’s it coming? Good. You...
UNC vs. State
Today’s one of my favorite days of the year. Usually, I sit around and watch highlights on YouTube of Carolina beating the dog shit out of State in some sport for a while. Also, I peruse State’s message board (PackPride) to see what types of hate they are spewing this year. Thank goodness for both my boredom and me there’s a new thread “Why I hate Carolina with every...
I’ve watched this nearly 10 times now and laugh my ass off every single time.
Strange convo my friend overheard at work
So this wasn't in my office, but the convo was overheard by a friend of mine and he just relayed to me over Gchat.
Girl 1: Mine feels soft inside. Does yours feel soft inside?
Girl 2: Noooo. Mine's not soft like that.
I have confirmation as to what they were talking about, but it certainly would take the fun away if I told you.
This is kind of like what happened to the team who told us to turn our music off last night. If you are like me, you watched the entire video hoping for a replay — but being disappointed. One thing to note though — the guy who gets wrecked in the face stands right back in front of the guy tossing the ball in. I.D.I.O.T.
WATCH. THIS. NOW! →
Is Loafers Sans Socks sexist?
The simple answer is NO. Recently, someone told me they thought my blog had turned a corner and become a little bit sexist. I vehemently disagree. While there are pictures that seem a bit ridiculous (e.g. Audrina in a bikini) and screen shots of tags that say, “Give it your wife” in reference to how you should wash your shirt, I can tell you that under no circumstance do I believe...
Top 5 list of the week
With Christmas a mere 5 weeks away, I figured I’d put a list of the “Top 5 Things I Want for Christmas” up. You can view this as a sort of registry. Get whichever you want. And if I receive more than one of any of them I’ll have a drawing to decide which friends get the extras.
Reckner pays a visit via texting
Reckner is my girlfriend's alter ego. Usually Reckner only comes out when Red Bull Vodkas are heavily consumed (as they were last night). Here's my conversation with Reckner via Blackberry messenger last night.
One other thing, I realize that some of her comments are nonsensical. Just try to enjoy.
Reckner: Where R U?
Reckner: Upstairs smoking.
Me: I'm at my house.
Me: Fine what? I told you I was headed home. You were hanging out w your friends. No big deal.
Reckner: It's fine I'm home.
Me: You are already home? You just sent me a message that said you were upstairs at Fosters.
Me: (5 minutes later) ?????
Me: (10 minutes later) Reckner, are you home?
Me: How did you get home?
Reckner: I. Am here
Reckner: Cab duh
Reckner: I dRrrrrrrrereovew
Reckner: I drove
Reckner: Come over
Reckner: I need a spoon
Me: I don't have a car and Tyler just went to sleep. You come here.
Reckner: I can't driiive!
Me: We are in quite a pickle.
Me: I'll just see you tomorrow afternoon
Reckner: U don't love me
Me: What the F?
Reckner: I'm pissed
Reckner: You didn't stay out with me when I asked and now we r apart
Me: You said you were having a girls night. I was just letting you have a good time with your friends. Calm down.
Reckner: Fine w me good night
Reckner: Pure gold just ran a HOT ad
Reckner: Wheeeeeeeeeereerreeee are youuuuuuuuu?
Reckner: Wake uuuuuuup
Lee and Matt’s mom sent me a video she has of them fighting back in the day. But seriously, this is from a movie. Not sure which one, but it’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen.
Quick chat with HR employee about how he takes a...
Me: Hey man. I've missed you. You haven't come by your normal five times to check in.
HR employee: Yeah, well you don't come across the hall. We don't smell. We take baths over there.
Me: You bathe? Not shower? Strange.
HR employee: What's weird about a bath?
Me: Nothing if you are a 6-year-old girl.
HR employee: Whatever, dude.
Me: What did you do this weekend?
HR employee: I worked.
Me: What? You do work on the weekends? Bogus.
HR employee: I have some consulting jobs.
Me: OK, finally. I've always wanted to talk to someone who consults. What do you consult? How do I break into this field? I NEED to know.
HR employee: I help people with interview skills, resumes, that stuff.
Me: People come to you for advice on their resumes? Come on, I don't believe that.
HR employee: What's not to believe.
Me: Everything you just said. Plus, even if you do that, that isn't really consulting. That's just giving people advice. I think actual consultants define their work by other measures.
HR employee: Whatever. I get paiiiiiiid.
Me: That's ridiculous. Tell your 'clients' that I will look over their resumes and teach them some interview skills for half the price you charge. Here's my card. Give it to all of them.
HR employee: You really think I'm going to tell them that?
