I told myself I wouldn't do it.

I bought my glasses and my corduoroy blazer at about the same time. I told myself I wouldn't emo myself out, but I find myself wearing both at the same time, with a t-shirt no less. I've become that guy that wears black framed glasses, a black corduoroy jacket and a t-shirt under a blazer. Damnit all to hell, but I like it. The blazer I boughy to wear to work mostly. I just started wearing it more often because it has great pockets and it's warm enough in the cold. The glasses I bought and wear out of neccesity. The clincher to all of this is wearing the jacket with a t-shirt. I don't mind wearing the jacket with a dress shirt or sweater, but with a t-shirt it looks like I'm trying to be too stylish. Damnit! I'm not trying to, these things have just wormed their way into my everyday wardrobe. Oh well. Guys, just don't let me grow my hair out and sweep it all to one side or start wearing my sister's jeans or start putting band pins on my bag. If it comes to that, slap me to my senses!

Is the Daily Show doing Harm?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwDlTkWtJZ4

There are comments of outrage and disbelief but what strikes me as interesting is that there are people who say it's obviously satirical and that they are joking. IT'S CNN people! It's not the Daily Show. CNN's job is to be serious! I'm not saying that the Daily Show is influencing CNN (It probably does) I'm saying that the Daily Show is affecting people that don't normally don't watch the news and when they do see something like this they think nothing of it, assuming that they are making a lame attempt at humor. Do you see my point?

Thoughts while getting rid of more of Chuck's Junk

As many of you know one of my tenants died two months ago. He had lived here for 40+ years. When I say 40+ years you may say "40 YEARS!!!" He used to own the building and was the apartment manager before me, so it's pretty understandable to live in the same place for forty years. Anyways, the amount of junk that he had stored in three or four different areas is astounding! I've had this company called Junk Boys out three or four times now to clear most of this stuff out and there is still plenty left.
Most of this junk is just that, junk. Worthless junk. He had forty or so coffee cans, old magazines, wood scraps, the drapes that used to be in the building 10-20 years ago, broken pieces of glass, old stereos, old receipts...you get the picture. This got me thinking, most of this stuff he kept thinking that he would fix it or would use it in some way. He couldn't bare to throw away something that could somehow someway be used. He was 84 when he died. He grew up during the depression (or right after, not sure), that probably had a lot to do with it. I wonder when our parents pass (apologies to those who parents have passed) what kind of junk will there be? My guess is that most of it will be consumer crap. Baby boomers grew up in a time of prosperity and bought a bunch of crap.

Sorry this could have been summed up in "I wonder what the difference between the junk that depression era and baby boomer people will have after they die."

I'm going to pull a Noelle

So I posted that last article here (livejournal) and on MySpace. I'm not desperate for attention or anything, but it was nice to see that 6 people have looked at my blog since I posted it twenty minutes ago. Also, most if not all of you are on Myspace. (Toby, get with the program!) I have 22 friends on Livejournal, but I have 111 on Myspace and I don't know how many I have in real life....7 or 8? Actually that's one of my requirements for friendship on Myspace, I must know you in real life. I know that I don't actually know Walter Sobcheck or Pearl Jam, but get over it. Back to the lecture at hand (perfection is perfected so I'm gonna let 'em understand :)) I feel I will get in touch with more peeps through Myspace than through Livejournal. For a while I will post on both and see how it goes. That is all.

Good Day

I played golf today at Washington National. I'm driving the ball and putting the best that I can ever remember. I'm hitting big draws. I aim down the right side of a fairway and know it will draw back to the middle. I found myself aiming at trouble knowing my ball would be turning away from it. I've never felt more confident on the course.

We started at 11:30 and it was 42 degrees! I had a long sleeve tee on underneath my polo and a polar fleece sweater with a beanie.

I may be starting work December 1st back at Entercom (with quite a bit more pay).....more on that later. I'm going on unemployment tomorrow.

I talked to my Grandma on the way home today, that was nice.

bad news: One of my tenant's apartments was broken into. The basement apartment. I think it may have been the construction workers that were working on the pipe in between a couple of the building here last week. The worst part is he didn't have renter's insurance and his 37 inch plasma was stolen. I don't think it's anything to worry about though. Their unit is street level and easily accessible.

Off to sleep, after reading more of Boys of Summer. Then it's off to Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, I never read those as a kid. But I just added that clay-mation Mark Twain cartoon (http://www.netflix.com/MovieDisplay?movieid=70044479&trkid=90529) from the 80s. Did anyone else ever watch that. It was Mark Twain on an intergalactic steamboat...do I sound crazy?

I Shot A 78!

I played Trophy Lake today and I shot a 78! Six over par! I hit 6 of 7 fairways and 7 greens on the front 9 and shot a 37. One over. I was five over on the back nine, which is pretty good. But I definitely left some shots out there on the course. Man!

After golf it was off to Rikki-Rikki in Kirkland for my going away dinner. And then back here to pull out the carpet for the hardwood guys tommorow in the apartment.

Man! I shot a 78! It was like 50 degrees and the wind was blowing. Man, I don't think I've ever been in such a zone like I was on the front nine.

We had hot chocolate and Bailey's at the turn....one word....DELICIOUS!
