Every Thursday night, I play floor hockey with a bunch of guys.
I usually enjoy it, I’m a decent player since I have good hands, but I’m not handicapped by my lackluster skating ability. The other players are pretty good too, and nobody takes it too seriously.
Recently we had a cute girl come and play. Because I like cute girls, I started talking to her. As we talk, I’m starting to think she’s pretty nice, which is always a good combination with cute. And then, she drops a bomb, as we’re talking about other sports she likes:
“Yeah, I hope the volleyball team does good next year. It’ll be my last year at school, so I want to do good.”
I was hitting on a high school girl. I swear, she looked 25.
Random Thing I Enjoyed This Week
Baseball season has started tonight, and as I type this, my Toronto Blue Jays are TROUNCING the Minnesota Twins, leading 10-0 after 5 innings. Both Jose Bautista and Adam Lind just hit MONSTER home runs. Ricky Romero is pitching well. I know it’s only one game, but they’re sure looking good.
Toronto does this every year. They have a fantastic April, a decent May, and then promptly screw everything up once they have to play the Red Sox and Yankees a bunch. Even though this happens, I get pretty excited by about May 15th, thinking that the Jays will finally get over the hump and make the playoffs. And then, every year, I get let down. Now I know what it’s like to be a Leafs fan.
Random Thing That Irritated Me This Week
Today my boss came down to check up on how the stores look, and it pisses me off every time.
I don’t like to spend a whole bunch of time chatting with the store employees. They receive the order, we chat for a minute of so, and then I get to work. If they want to keep chatting (which they usually do, probably because I’m so charismatic- and modest) they’re free to do so, I just take the opportunity to stock the chips while they chat. I work, we get to talk, everyone wins.
My system gets all screwed up whenever the boss comes. She leisurely walks around the store, and feels the need to stop to look at every display. She also spends way too much time talking to the store employees, about all sorts of stuff that only she cares about. It easily adds an hour or two on my day. I really am not a fan of meetings just for the sake of talking. At least I only see her four times a year.
Song I Like And Therefore You Should Too
This is easily the funniest song I’ve heard this week. If your kids are in the room, I’d suggest listening to this one with the headphones.
Keep an eye out for the Jessica Alba cameo. She is more lovely than that time I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror.
Simpsons Quote Of The Week
Homer: Getting out of jury duty is easy. The trick is to say you’re prejudiced against all races.
Sports TV You Should Watch This Week
It’s a pretty solid sports weekend. The Final Four is this weekend. All sorts of baseball games are on. Both the NBA and NHL are entering the crunch time right before the playoffs. But what I’m going to watch is LPGA golf. The ladies are playing their first major this weekend, the Kraft Nabisco Championship. I like LPGA. Don’t judge me.
What’s more interesting about the Kraft Nabisco Championship is it the most popular sporting event of the year for lesbians. All sorts of lesbians show up at the tournament, a lot of which don’t even like golf. I once read that a whole bunch of lesbians will sit on the hill overlooking the 17th green, wearing skirts with no underwear, showing their girl parts to the players as they play. I’m not sure if that’s true, but it’s awesome nonetheless.
Blogging Snack Of The Week
I should almost call this weight loss update of the week. I finally cracked the 230 plateau, getting down to 229.4. It could have been a better week, but there was pizza and McDonalds, neither of which are good for weight loss. McDonalds is much, much more delicious if you only get it about once every 3 months. I especially enjoy the Buffalo Chicken Snack Wrap, that’s some good hot sauce on that thing. And the fries? Say what you want about McDonalds, but they make a delicious french fry.
Babe Loosely Related To Finance
Since I talked about the LPGA earlier, let’s go with one of the hotties that plays on the tour, Michelle Wie.
What was creepy about Michelle is she looked pretty much that hot when she was 14. She’s over 6 feet tall, with a smokin’ hot body, and one crazy Dad. I could deal with a crazy father in law if I got to lay next to that every night.
She’s also one of the richest single ladies in the whole world. I think I’m in love.
Oh Right, Time For Links
Investor Junkie is mad because his friends and family are asking him to do stuff for free. I feel his pain on this one. There is nothing more annoying than people who feel entitled to your time or energy.
New (at least to me) blogger Kayla over at Finance Say What has a good review of her Ipad 2. I’m pretty sure the whole post is subliminally making fun of me because I don’t have one. Also, every time I say her blog name, I say it like this.
