The No Fun Zone

Hi. It's been so long since we talked, I felt like I needed a little ice breaker instead of just jumping right in. That's all I've got. Oh yeah, back in the day, I was a hit at The Houndstooth.

I'm not sure how Harry Potter ends, but it must have been devastating to the peeps (I wanted to call them virgins, but I thought that unfair to virgins) in our IS department. Those fun Nazis have blocked access to all sites from our work computers. NO FUN FOR YOU! I can't read any of your stuff, and I can't post any thing from work. What a bunch of kill-joys. Now I can only access my site and all of your sites from home. Like I've got time to do this from the house! Tonight is the exception, though, because Leah had a function of some sort to which guys and kids weren't invited.

I used to work through lunch, but if they're going to be that way about it, I'm going to do like everyone else. That is, leave 5 minutes before lunch officially begins, stay gone for an hour and fifteen minutes, then show up with a sack full of Krystals and sit at my desk and eat for another thirty minutes whilst ignoring all responsibility or sense of duty.

No, I won't do that. I'm too nice.

A wise man once told me, "A job's not worth having if you can't take advantage of it every now and then." No word if he said that before he was fired or after.

Anyhoo. What else?



The best line that I read about them was that he was famous because or her, and she was famous for being somewhat famous.

He's a SOCCER PLAYER (injured) AND SHE, NOTHING MORE THAN A SOCCER PLAYER'S WIFE! Oh, she's friends with Katie Holmes! I hope she's had her crazy shot. Over that.

A couple of weeks ago, before it rained, I was watering our drought stressed Japanese Maple with the garden hose when I took a sip of water out of the garden hose. Well, Jack saw me do it and he HAD to have a drink. The kid LUVS water, and to drink it out of a garden hose was too much for him to resist. So, they're we were...the tree got a sip, Da got a sip, Jack got a sip, and Jack's shirt got a sip. It made for some really cute pictures and we all had a great time. All of us, that is, except Grandma Lolly. Grnadma Lolly was repulsed by this activity.

Two days later, like manna from heaven, Fox News, the Rush Limbaugh Radio Empire or the Sally Struthers Network miraculously ran a story about the dangers of allowing children to drink from garden hoses because of all the bacteria that builds up in the hose. So much for that fun.

But I'm telling you, the kid loves water. During his bath, he has taken to filling up his plastic Elmo cup and DRINKING HIS BATH WATER. Inside, I feel like this is a little more dangerous than drinking from a garden hose, but those that know me know that I'm a "choose my battles" type of guy (actually I'm not, because is it really worth all that?), and my battle is with the garden hose. We're not going to tell Lolly that he drinks his bath water. We'll let that be a surprise the next time she babysits. Should be fun. Pee, poot, drink, repeat.

Did you guys watch Greek last Saturday night? I saw half of it before I fell asleep. Yes, I'm aware that I fell asleep at 8:30.

Kathy Griffin is a funny funny lady.

That's really all that I've seen.

Lastly, to the interest of no one reading this, I ran a grand total of 17 miles last week. Four 3-mile runs and a 5 miler on Saturday. My goal this week, two 3s, two 4s, and a 6. If I did my math right, that's 20 miles even. Get y'all some of that.

I am already so sick of Posh and Becks (mostly Posh). Guess it would help if I wouldn't read so many entertainment sites but love it when they make fun of her.
Hate to hear drinking out of the hose is dangerous but I would have to say no to drinking bath water, too.
Great job on the running!

Drew also a big fan of drinking the bath know it is especially clean after wearing those Crocs all day. Guess will have to work on that. I was letting him do it b/c he is afraid of swimming this year and when he does it he uses nothing so civilized as a cup, but sticks his whole face in and I thought it was good b/c at least he was putting his face in the water.

That is horrifying that you can no longer blog at work. Put Jason down on the list of bath water drinkers. I have mostly stopped him I think, but I have to really watch him while he's getting a bath. Once he was old enough to understand, "that will make you sick", it got better.

Add twins to bath drinkers. And the water has double the pee and funk in it. They, too, put their face in it and suck on their wash cloths.
I actually watched Becks' soccer game to see him play the last 15 minutes. They had a "Beckham Cam". That's what they called it. They showed half of the screen with the game on and the other half with the "Beckham Cam" showing him sitting on the bench. Come on! But I will say he is hot and I think Posh is funny. I watched her show twice. That makes me what?
