Who’s Got the Hooch? Baby
23 Dec 2005 09:03 am
Anyone remember the song “Who’s got the Hooch?”. For some reason I have that song in my head, but can’t remember any lyrics but what I’ve already quoted. And something aboug Freshy, freshy.
It’s the last day of work before Christmas. I’ve determined that I’ve worked everyday this month except for one. So Christmas day will be the second day I’ve had off. Amy’s disappointed that she hasn’t gotten me much for Christmas, but the money just isn’t there. And I keep telling her that I’ve worked so hard this month, just to see the smiles on my families faces. And it’s true. It’s sappy but true. I guess that’s the plight of a father.
Last night we had a very small turnout for what was the first in a series of two game nights that we’re hosting at our house. We only had one other couple show up. And only one game was played, between me and Mike. The ladies talked, and the children played. I had a good time. I did get to play my new Christmas present last night. A card game called Blue Moon. Thanks for learning Mike! Thanks for the game sweety!
Oh yeah, I’m bored. I have to stay until our Treasury dept goes home, and unfortunately for me today is a full trading day. I’ll be here until four. The internet is so slow and no one is here.
So I’ll blog. And I’m done.

Yep. I’m procrastinitating again….
Can’t get going.

Check this out. I’m procrastinating so much today that I’m going to take the time to blog. I just can’t get motivated. My managers manager is in today, and even that’s not motivating me. I need to get with it. I hate when work becomes like this. I hate to complain about work to Amy, cause she’s had such a rough time lately with her job, and I hate to hear her complain, so I know that she’s got to feel the same way.
Randomness, I’ve been selling christmas trees this season. My first day at the lot was the 3rd. It’s been alright, it’s mostly easy work and christmas carols are played the entire time, and people are mostly festive. That is until this weekend. It seems the sad, lonely, poor folks wait until the last minute to get their trees. I saw more arguments, more grouchiness this weekend than I had the entire stint. I can kind of understand. But in general, I’ve been in a very festive mood. I’m sure the trees and music help. We got my first pay from the tree stand, besides tips, this past Friday, and despite the sick kids, and being on the edge of sick ourselves we got to spend some time shopping. It was so much fun. I love my wife, and love to get out with her. Kids change us so much.
I’m a big slacker, I want to get my MCSE by this time next year. It’s a lofty goal. I also need to spend some one-on-one time with God. And some one-on-one time with my wife. All these things just go by the wayside, especially when I’m busy, and when I’m home I just want to lay around, or surf the net, and do stuff that doesn’t stretch my mind, even though most of what keeps me busy is mindless. So if my friends are reading this, IM me, encourage me, knock me around, etc… I think we’re going to cancel DirecTV, we’ll be able to finish up what’s on Tivo, even without it. We’ll have more time to do the stuff that matters. I think the only thing we’ll miss is Battlestar Galactica, but I’m fairly certain we can find that online somewhere.

So I’m updating this with the OPML editor.

Well, since I didn’t get to post the news myself, I guess I’ll go ahead and rebutt on my site.Â So I’ve shaved my goat, and now only have a ‘tache. The reasoning goes like this. The goat was getting unwieldy, and since I don’t have a beard trimmer, and only have hair clippers (which I’ve lost all the guards for) it’s fairly difficult to trim up.Â Not terribly difficult, just more difficult than say, shaving it to the skin.Â Keeping the ‘tache, now that’s the fun part. I always like to throw people for a loop. Keep ‘em guessing, is what I always say.Â So that’s the deal. It does look funny. But I’m ok with that. Amy. Not so much. But she’s gotten used to me looking funny.Â And I’m fairly certain that it’s not funny looking so much as simply different, or,Â not me.Â That’s why I didn’t want to do it, than shave it off right away. I wanted to give it a chance to, wait for it….. grow on me. Â And it has. And last night Amy admitted that it wasn’t so bad. Not so bad is a far cry formÂ throw me down on the couch and make love to me, handsome, but I’m not missing out anyway.
Stagg Chili and Christmas Trees at the Aquarium
02 Dec 2005 12:40 pm
Oh, I always try to come up with some catchy title, that is somehow relevant, and in this post, I intend to explain such.
Several weeks ago Amy bought me a couple of boxes of chili. Yes, that’s right- boxes. Of chili. Stagg Chili to be exact. And today, because my sandwich that was in the common refrigerator, was thrown out last night when they cleaned it, I’m enjoying the second box. It really doesn’t look very good. It doesn’t smell very good. Why after those indicators do I still choose to put it in my mouth? Well, hunger mostly. But in spite of the smell, and appearance, it tastes surprisingly good. Consider this my recommendation for stagg Chili.
Tomorrow night, I start job #3. In fact, between now and tomorrow night I will have worked all of my jobs, except for the volunteering I’ve been doing for Kel. I’ve not written much about Job #2, hell, I haven’t written much at all. Job#2 is for an event company, that does lights, sound, video, etc… for large parties and events. I’ll get to that in a second, for now I want to write about Job#3. Job #3, while I’m not quite sure what my duties will be, I’m sure of it’s location and main task. I’ll be trying to convince folks that the tree that they’re currently looking at is the one that will look best in their living room, decorated with lights and tinsel and random bits of nostalgia from years gone by. I’ve never done this before, but this month I have the opportunity to make a bit of extra Christmas Cash. Christmas Cash, especially extra Christmas Cash is always a good thing. So that’s Job#2 - Selling Christmas trees. I’ll get at least 40 hours in before Christmas.
Job#3, while is really the most exciting of my jobs (besides volunteering at Theater Project), but it’s also the most strenuous. I haven’t really had the opportunity to do much at since I got back from Mississippi. Mostly cause I hurt my back carrying the center pole for the tent that we erected, on the first day there. Anyway, Job#3 is going to have me working 12+hours setting up lights and stuff for the opening ceremony for the new wing of the Aquarium. I’m honestly psyched about this. I love this kind of stuff, and can’t wait to do it. However I’m concerned about my back. From the email it seems like we’ll mostly be setting up lighting rigs, which is much easier on my back than running feeder cable, which can easily weight 150lbs. And this time we’re also sub-contractors, so that’s cool that the whole thing is not on us.
Anyway, that’s that. I summed up my title, and my plight in life, well not really life, but more like December.
