the state of the shit



right now, sentimental somethings is well into its peak season. i currently have more than three score voice mails begging for attention, a stack of faxes on my desk that is rivaled only by the stack that has yet to be removed from the machine and i get the sneaking suspicion that my relative inability to perform magic is frustrating sales reps and slow to pay customers alike.

in years past, such a scenario would: encourage a marathon viewing of falling down, result in a heavily damaged keyboard and force me to seek solace in a cigarette or two during my morning and afternoon breaks.

however, i am happy to report that right now i am completely unfazed by the incessant and often absurd demands of customers, the whiff of smoke is not on my fingers and i frankly do not give a (insert one of george w. bush's favorite words here: ______) about operational issues i cannot change or sales issues that cannot be solved in due course.

so that’s the state of the shit at present. pimpin'.

That's funny, I had my own "Falling Down" post a few days ago.

As for one of Bush's favorite words....how does one convey dumb silence in words?

hey did you get a hair cut or something? maybe the tie just makes you look younger.

thanks mike and agent b. sentimental somethings decided to run a picture of me on their promotional materials, so i had to dress up a bit.

i hate ties though. i only own two and only break them out for weddings and funerals.

...and they are in the permanent loop, right? So you can just slip them on and off, rather than have to tie them from scratch.

but of course!

Dude, and i've seen them too. They are not only in the permanent loop position, but they've crusted into a fixed formation.

Eew..my father taught me how to tie a tie because, as he said, "Most guys don't know how to tie a tie, so you should know for them." Yay, Dad!
