Seriously...come on...people suck.

I work with animals.

and I am sick of it.

I haven't mentioned "Innitech" in some time, but this one needs to be talked about. It is not pleasant, but you are used to my horrid writing skills.

Working on the first floor has its stairs. That is about it. Since the building has a larger entrance/atrium as well as the cafeteria, kitchen and mail room there is not of room for desk or work space. Lets say every floor holds 100 people this one hold 50 to give you an idea.

Well what we get is our downstairs bathroom (at least the mens rooms and by some reports the ladies room too) DESTROYED by 10am most days. Every person on another floor feels they can come down to the first floor, use our bathroom because they won't pass that cute guy/gal on the way to/from the bathroom. Heaven forbid Mary in accounting knows you actually use a bathroom!

Today I found myself heading to get a drink when I had the sudden urge to sneeze..and thusly did so (yes I covered etc). I was a few steps from the mens room so I decided I'd go in grab some tissue to blow my nose and then wash my hands.(hey having 2 kids has you do this..a LOT). So I go in. The bathroom has 2 urinals and then 2 stalls. One is smaller and the second is the handicapped stall. The smaller stall was "occupied" and I figured I'd be quick in and out since I just wanted to blow my nose.

So I push the stall door open...and it happens. The bowl violations are like a car look...are grossed out..but want to give it a second look..all the while screaming at yourself.

I quickly tried to roll off some toilet paper..and I noticed..both rolls were EMPTY. (this was 10:40am or so) Stuffed in the area of the holders...was that hard coarse paper towel. Torn in to smaller sheets..but no less a disaster.

Still needing some tissue I thought I'd look towards the sink. Housekeeping often leaves a few rolls on the sink (wrapped etc) but there was none.

I wasn't too far from a sink in another area so I decided I could just leave...but then I worried the guy in the stall would wonder what the heck I was doing. I decided to give my hands a wash. As I was doing that a second person came in to the bathroom...and went right for the stall. Part of me wanted to warn him there was no paper before he sat down and then realized he ONLY option was what I like to call "Prison paper". Even people serving life have more comfortable toilet tissue.

He went in and just had at I guess he is in for a rude surprise.

Thanks for grossing up the LONE bathroom we have on the first floor.

People can be real assholes.

Just some stuff.

So I dorked it up huge earlier this week. I waited outside for the midnight sale of a video game. Yeah crazy I know, but I really liked Modern Warfare 2 and the newest in the line is "Black Ops". I pre-ordered months ago and Monday night at 11pm I left my house and drove to the store. Easily 20 people in the store paying and finalizing the transaction, then 250+ in a line.

It is/was dorky but part of me wonders "What is left that people will wait out for?" People don't (or can't) sleep out for concert tickets. People don't have midnight sales of cds anymore because it appears that nobody wants to buy cds..well at least like that. Movies maybe people wait for..but I think video games is the last place where hard core fans will stand in line, or pre-order etc. Dorky and fun all at once.

Speaking of music and concerts I don't think I have much left I am waiting for cd wise in 2010. Maserati had their cd come out yesterday and other than Phish and Caspian in December I am not sure I'll get to another show.

TV wise has been slow. The wife and I have been watching Mad Men. I started off slow with the show but have grown to like it. We are on season 3 and having a hard time getting time to sit and watch together.

I bit the bullet as they say and bought Showtime for "Dexter". I loved LOVED season four even though I knew how it ended. This season is so far okay..I realize they need to mix things up. Waiting a week between episodes is a drag...but Sundays still rule. I started to watch the Walking Dead as well on AMC. That is pretty good too. After 2 episodes its already signed up for another season. I hope this season doesn't tank! 30 Rock still great, the Office I am really falling out of lust with. It just needs to end, it is time. Saturday Night Live is one thing I DVR each week and this season so far hasn't left many strong skits. I still watch, and will crack a smile, but I feel like they are really due for something.

Still haven't tasted Miles Davis Bitches Brew. My brother got me a bottle but I haven't seen him in a few weeks.

Sports wise, Boston Bruins are doing pretty well..we will take it. Providence Bruins are warming up some. After starting 2-5 they won their last 3 so that is a plus.

Just randomness I know...just felt like posting.

Crickets, ho-hum and feeling sorry for myself....

Wow..i am going weeks at a time without updates. The blog has been on my mind some..but not a ton. Readership is way down (probably due to lack of content) so I need to really decide what to do.

Forgotten Disc Friday is sort of in the same rut too. Not a lot of feed back, but readership stats are pretty good.

Dunno..just dunno.
