Hockey Tonight

As I sit at my desk in jeans, a Magnum PI tshirt, and striped socks that go up to my knees... I can thing of nothing more than getting out of here for the hockey game. I know what you are thinking... how could I have gotten my mind off the smashing outfit that I am wearing? Well, my friends... when you always look as good as me... you don't concern yourself with this sort of drivel.

So back to the point at hand... We are heading to a hockey game in Tampa Bay where I will be watching Tampa Bay and Toronto. I am thrilled as this will be a great way to kick off my reintroduction into hockey. I haven't seen a game since last season and I am stoked that my first game to be seen since my jump back into hockey marketing will be here. Sweet and sweet.

The only downfall is that Rich won't be able to make it... haha... I said downfall. Rich sucks.

Can't Sleep

Apparently not eating meat has caused a slight problem in my Thanksgiving Day ritual. I don't recall the exact events of last years Thanksgiving, but I fear that the lack of tryptophan in my holiday meal is what is keeping me up so late. As the hours tick by and my 5am wake-up call from Kermit creeps nearer, I wonder if I should simply attempt an all nighter and then work my 14 hours tomorrow. While I am fairly certain that this would not make for a pleasant scene... do I really have a choice? I will either fall asleep or I won't. So as I head to bed for the fourth time I ask myself, is this the sad existence that other people who know me are jealous of... if only they knew the truth.

Literary Tragedy

After spending a good hour detailing the excitement that spilled forth from my Thanksgiving holiday with particular attention to detail given to the first hour of my day and the incessant phone calls that roused me from the slumber and ridiculously intense dreams that I was enjoying, my internet connection was lost. The work of literary genius that I had worked so diligently on... vanished.

Wondering if I Have Made a Mistake

Current mood: exhausted

So I can't sleep... and trust me, it's not because I'm not tired. I am exhausted. I spent the weekend in Homestead at the final races of the season. I worked late on Friday due to the rain. Had to be at work way early on Saturday because they moved the truck event to that morning... Then worked all day and again on Sunday. Upon returning home after 11pm I had to spend quality time with my sad, neglected dog. So... yes, I am tired. But more than that... I am emotionally drained. I am tired of relationships, jobs that don't pay enough, and generally all the crap that comes with being an adult... I have a job offer in Texas. I could actually pay my bills without stressing. But is it where I should be? Am I giving up too easily on the job here? Am I giving up too easily on myself? What should I do? Do I go in and quit in the morning? Do I turn down good money in the hope that someone here will want me soon? Do I crawl under the covers and hope that I will sleep through the next six or seven days? All of the above? None of the above? So I liked being 6. I had a lot of fun that year. My mom made all the crucial decisions... Perhaps 1986 will take me back.

Off to Miami. Koda has a sitter... I am a little worried that he's gonna cry a lot. But, who can worry about these things.

So Seriously...

I'm bored. And I kinda just need someone to tell me what to do for a bit. You know, hold my hand and fix things. Like what should I do about the job offers coming from back home? I would like to go home, but I would like to think that I am better than that. And what about the financial crap of having your first real job post graduation? Seriously, they should warn you that not only will you be broke, but you will be broke hardcore. And the self image issues that I'm having... I think I can trace them back to one fateful night in my OSU dorm room... hmm... Heath. Haven't thought about him in ages. He could bump into me in the street and I wouldn't have a clue who he was... straining to remember a face... and no. Nothing. He's gone. Sadly, now that I think about it... a lot of people's faces are gone from my memory. Wiped clean out... like I can see us together doing something (driving ina car, sitting in class, watching a certain movie, blah blah) but I can't fill in the details of people's faces. And then there are those people that I have pictures of... but who the hell are they? They somehow made it into my photo album, but why? How important could they have been if I can't remember who they are six years later. While I am rambling (I figure if you were so bored, you'd stop reading... so basically... your fault if you are miserably reading this)... let's talk about people whose faces you can't forget. Some are great! The kind of people who when you close your eyes you get all happy cause there they are. And then there are the people whose faces are unpleasantly ingrained into your brain and no matter what you try to do to erase them... there they are... asses. What makes some people worth remembering... and others just fade away? If you are thinking "bone structure and fashion" you are so right.

Wow... sorry about the delay in posts

So I haven't written in forever... or since last month at least. Things have been crazy and at the same time, so boring that there really isn't much to write anyway. I have a little crush, but just like junior high, it will never amount to much, so... not worth going on about. The car (yes, the new one) is almost at 600 miles. Killer. Ummm... I am going to Miami this weekend for work. That should so be a good time! I will be at my first big race weekend ever, which is probably good to experience seeing as though I work at a track. I am going down to the event with my boss Kari. I have been super excited because it will give me some time to talk to her about things, but also... I am a little freaked out because what if she realizes she doesn't like me all that much? Well now, that would just suck.

Father Daughter Bonding

So I am getting ready to head to Orlando for what some might refer to as father-daughter bonding... I like to look at it as a man trying to make up for being completly absent for the first 24 years.

So we are going to some sort of family picnic (maybe for his job?). I have the distinct feeling we will be the only "family" that doesn't involve young children and what not. But., I will humor him. I will go. I will put on a pleasant attitude and play silly games. I will eat food that has been sitting on the same plate as BBQ. I will act like we are the best of friends. Afterall, isn't that really all he wants? The semblance of a relationship? That's my guess.
