What's the Opposite of Exciting? This Blog!

Oh HIII! You're still coming here and reading? But I haven't posted anything interesting in... ummm, honestly, I don't know if I've ever actually posted anything *interesting*, but I haven't even posted boring crap in forever. I will remedy that now. Please be prepared to be DAZZLED (or bored. Probably bored...)

Here's the lowdown nitty gritty fun facts from my life, in no particular order.

I got to go to a Cleveland Cavaliers playoff game a few weeks ago. It was also the game where LeBron James was awarded the league MVP award, which is a huge deal here in Cleveland. I've never been to a professional basketball game because a) I didn't really like basketball and b) I didn't really like basketball.

Turns out, when LeBron Motherfucking James is on your basketball team, the game is kind of fun to watch! Also, when your dad knows rich people and gets tickets in a loge suite, it's super fun to watch! If you haven't attended a sporting event or concert in a loge suite, I recommend it. It's like a small hotel room without the beds. There's a wet bar, an ice maker, mini fridge stocked with sodas, beer and water, couches, 3 TVs, and really nice, deep seats where you're not sitting on top of other people & you can either watch the action on the court or on the GINORMOUS FLAME-SHOOTING JUMBOTRON right in front of your face. Oooh, plus? They bring you food. It's like having room service. But the BEST part? It has its own bathroom! Since I have the bladder of a small child and pee every 11 minutes (give or take a minute or two), this is like the best thing ever! No waiting in line. No sitting on a wet toilet seat. No walking up & down 50 million stairs to get to the bathroom. It's just right there in the room. Suh-weet. From this experience I have learned a couple of valuable life lessons:

1 - It's much easier to like a sport when your team is winning
2 - I would very much enjoy being super rich one day

I'm going to look into how to do that just as soon as I get done watching the teevee and writing this here breathtaking blog post.

Speaking of blog entries, it's my one-year anniversary of blogging. WHOOPIE!!! Yeah, not really WHOOPIE so much as, wow, time somehow manages to both fly and drag at the same time. I can't believe it's already been a year and yet, I can't believe it's only been a year, ya know? Anyway, the point is, you guys have helped me SO much this past year. Just knowing that you're here and that you care or are really good at pretending you care, has meant a lot to me. Thank you!

Next on today's agenda - Jackie got married last weekend. I was planning to attend the reception with Eric, our Manager of Finance. I asked him to go because he's really funny & we get along well, he knows Jackie and I thought we would have a good time since it wouldn't be a "date". This had been the plan for a month and a half or two months. He sent me a text 20 minutes before I was supposed to leave saying that he was really sorry, but he wasn't going to be able to make it. What the hell is wrong with people? I wouldn't have given a shit if he would have said "no" when I first asked him. I wouldn't have given a shit if he'd canceled the week before. Hell, I probably wouldn't have given a shit if he'd backed out the night before, but don't send me a TEXT 20 minutes before I walk out the door. That's just rude. And pussyish. Luckily, there was a very amusing woman at my table who reminded me of a cross between Tina Fey & Megan Mullally, so I still had a good time even though I didn't know anyone other than Jackie. It's been a week and Eric still hasn't offered an explanation of why he flaked. Dude, are you retarded? Don't piss off HR! That's just common knowledge.

Speaking of the Jackster, she'll be back from her honeymoon this week and then she'll be leaving us. Her last day is Friday and I've been looking over resumes (approximately 300 of them; I'm not even exaggerating) to find a new recruiter. It's exhausting! I'll probably whine about this more next week. YAY for you!!

Alrighty then. I've bored the crap out of myself, so my job here is done. Oh, one last thing - because I've kind of become a bit obsessed with basketball (fine, I'm a bit obsessed with LeBron. Seriously you guys, I want to do dirty things to him) here is the clip I've been watching over and over. Enjoy!

You're alive! I too would like to be very very rich one day.

Lainey said...

I AM alive! Ooh, I have an idea - we should be very very rich one day together!

I swear, I am just the best plan maker EVER!

jM said...

Can I be very rich with you guys, too? I have a feeling that I'd be very good at being very rich. I was once very rich in a very vivid vision and it went very well. VERY.

jM - But of course! The more the VERRIER!

(Don't even try to act like my pun wasn't funny. It was fuckin' HI-larious and you know it.)
