Nursing a mid-morning donut hangover

It’s birthday day here at Hell, Inc. The only thing better than a birthday day is Chili-Cookoff day (and that was Tuesday, give it up for me, Miss Best Non-Beef Chili 2006). Since we’ve got three birthdays (KG, Snoop Doug, and Al, the cutest girl on earth™) we really over did it with donuts, cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit and flowers everywhere. Later there are plans for fresh baked cookies using Softwareman’s toaster oven.

Good times in Corporate America.

Today’s a Rainman day. I’ve been listening to Jeff Tweedy’s “The Thanks I Get” and The Ramones’ “Gabba Gabba Hey” for the past hour. The thing is I can only get about halfway through The Ramones’ song before I have to go back to “The Thanks I Get.” I think it has to a lot to do with the way my heart knocks funny at the way Jeff Tweedy sings “You say you wanna know, where I go when I go” 33 seconds into the song. It’s either that or my mom shook me a lot as a baby.

    My birthday is next week, and I’m planning to work from home to avoid the obligatory office celebration. I’m not anti-social, I just hate being the center of attention.

    Gotta agree with the ‘non-beef chili’ trepidation, though the toaster oven cookies sound wonderful.

    Also, I thought about you this morning. When I drove to work, I put my 5000+ song iPod on ‘shuffle,’ which I rarely do, and got, at various times, ‘Mats (Bastards of Young), Westerberg (Gun Shy), and Tweedy (Pieholden Suite)…

    I hate to digress, but have you heard about the Hurricane on Saturn?

    http://articles.news.aol.com/news/_a/colossal-hurricane-like-storm-found-on/20061109173309990026?ncid=NWS00010000000001

    The new Senate and House have drafted a joint censure of Bush blaming this hurricane on his gross handling of environmental concerns.

    Al Gore is organizing a benefit concert, SaturnAid.

    Kanye West is slated to appear and blast Bush because he “don’t care about Saturn people.”
