It's Awful Bright Out There
7 August 2001
12:38 PM: Woo hoo! PJ Harvey! Coming to town!
Huh. I guess I didn't go to any concerts last night. Leaves me without a lot to say. They're going to get rid of Snack!® and give us free sodas instead. Then they'll get rid of the free sodas. I know how this works. On the other hand, the stock is just rocketing upwards! It's only one-third of my option price now. Can I contain my excitement.
Well, better get ready for work now. Yep. Got that whole glory of life stretching out ahead of me here. Hah - I was about to say something specific about some ways in which it could be worse. I'm learning, as usual, verrrrrrrrry slowly.
You know, I don't mean to be such a jerk. It's just a God-given natural talent.
3:11 PM: Lesson for Today: Anti-anxiety drugs do not do you any good if you leave them in the non-anxiety-causing bathroom at home and don't bring them with you out into the extremely-anxiety-causing world.
5:37 PM: Oh! I remember now. It's quite hot in here. Nice change from air-conditioned Winter. Now that the sun is going down and the fog is coming in, of course, the air conditioning is starting up.
New CDs! A gazillion of em! Absurdistan by Laika & The Cosmonauts. Foreign Words by boy crazy, man, I don't even remember what this one is. Oh, I think it's the song "Bad Things". Let's Go, an EP from Apples in Stereo. Uh-Oh!, by Tipsy. And oh, more. I wish everyone would go home so I could listen to them without worrying about Offending Someone. I wish everyone would go home anyway. I wish I was home. I wish I wish I was a fish.
8:25 PM: And Laptop! Featuring the heart-warming song, "I'm So Happy You Failed" ("The Japanese are happy! North America's very happy! And of course the Germans are happy...")
Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.
All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
