Too Fucking Hot to Work

Last night I had to work late. I didn’t expect it, but it was a minor crisis and I don’t mind pitching in. A bunch of us had to stay late and go through tons of papers and old files. I don’t want to say why, but let’s just say that it was really important to find those files.

So the boss ordered pizza for everyone so we didn’t have to leave the building and go get something to eat. That was nice – I don’t eat much pizza but I was hungry and getting fucking tired and wanted to get it done so we could go the fuck home.

So here we are after 8:00 and we are still humping out way through all these boxes of papers and it starts getting hot in the office. I mean, it is summer and all, but we are in a high rise office building with air conditioning. Its not supposed to get hot in there.

So, we all started noticing how hot it was getting and then someone realized that the A/C was not working. So, who are you going to call at 8:00 at night about the A/c? Not our landlord, that’s for damn sure. We flipped switches on and off and adjusted the thermostat by poking a coat hanger wire through the plastic cage they have the A/C control locked up behind. But still nothing. So after a half hour of that bull shit I was getting sweaty and gave up.

I left and the boss was a little mad but I can’t be all sweaty and staying to work until midnight or anything – I was just being nice and helping out. It’s not like I get paid overtime money or anything because I’m on salary and it wasn’t even my job to deal with these papers. I just hope the fucking air conditioning is working today.

I Plead the Fifth!

bead guilt

Yes, I do have beads. Real beads from partying in New Orleans. No, I’m not going to tell you what I did to get them. You are going to have to guess. It might help if you have a dirty mind.

April Fun

The first of April is celebrated in America as April Fool’s Day. I have no idea what the history is for this holiday. I think it is just one more good reason for a party and having some fun.

I like the idea of playing harmless jokes on people. It is fun to get people out of their comfort zone for a few moments. There have been some really creative practical jokes concocted over the years.

If anyone has ever played a joke on you on April Fools Day, please write a comment on my post and share the story. I’d love to hear it!

Shamrocks and 4 Leaf Clovers

4-leaf-clover

Everyone is wearing green today and they risk getting pinched. That is half the fun of having St. Patrick’s Day celebrated in America. There’s no really good reason for us to be celebrating something that happened in Ireland, other than it’s a good excuse for people with any Irish in their bloodline to go have a party. And that is good enough for me!

An Extra Day!

Happy Leap Year Day! I think it is very cool to have a special, extra day every four years. Why don’t we make a bigger deal of this and celebrate it more widely? I think we should throw parties and have parades and use the day to relax and enjoy some silliness. After all, we celebrate even stranger reasons than this!
