Free Velocity

Today at work, I spent an hour on the phone with an elderly woman who wanted me to give her the sizing specifications on no less than ten articles of clothing and then launched into a thirty-minute story of how well her five dogs get along, interspersed with the current condition of her gall bladder.
I think I said a total of two or three sentences during the course of the conversation, mostly being, “Oh no!,” “Right on!,” and “That’s great!” She called to buy a skort for her trip to Mexico, and an hour later she was thanking me for having such a ‘wonderful’ conversation with her (and she truly meant it).
That’s right, you heard it… I’m a wonderful conversationalist.

A Curse Upon Gateway…

This is actually the second time that I have written this posting. The first time I was interrupted by my laptop rebooting on it’s own. There was a time when I would have thrown all things aside and done nothing but try to remedy the problem. I can’t seem to get into that computer geek mode anymore. So, a curse upon Gateway for selling such shitty and shoddy ass products, and a swift kick in my own ass for not being more upset about it.

I’ve spent the majority of my weekend working on my film class paper that is due tomorrow night. Yes, I have had over a month to get it together, but I’ve been preoccupied. Other things. Other things. And, I’m crushing hard on the girl that controls the LiteShow,… does that sound like something out of Oz or lyrics from a Pink Floyd song?
