Well, this certainly sucks.
By this I mean sitting at my desk on a Monday morning staring blankly out into the fog loitering outside my downtown office window. As the office coffee bitch, I’ve dutifully brewed a pot and I’m anxiously awaiting the 57 people who will come into the office (i.e. the break room/library) to get coffee and ask me about my weekend since the coffee pot is situated right here to my left . See, here it is. It stays next to the microwave and together they mock me for my poor life decisions which they attribute to my working in a break room for a City agency. I’m also fairly certain that the microwave is giving me cancer and making me sterile about three years too late to be a positive thing.
Ok, so 57 people is maybe a stretch, and I do actually like the people who will come get some coffee , so it’s not that bad really. Sometimes I even enjoy the company. Still, my weekend is generally wrapped up with a Monday blog, so don’t ask me how it was until you’ve read the blog people!
So anyway, we did manage to escape this weekend without anyone tossing my wallet out the car window which is something that you really take for granted until it happens. If you didn’t have your wallet tossed out onto an interstate this weekend, be thankful. Trust me.
We did have to endure 32 soccer games between Ace and Cool though. Well, Cool had one and Ace had four so I guess that’s five and not really 32. I exaggerate sometimes. Sadly, Ace’s team lost all four of their games, two of which required us to drive about 80 miles to and from the fields to play. That sort of sucks. Ace could really give two shits about winning or losing a soccer game, so it’s more frustrating for me than her by a long shot. I think she’s getting to the point where she’d rather make starburst bracelets than play soccer and that makes me sad. I have no clue what a starburst bracelet is, but she spends a lot of time with some loom device and her youtube tutorials learning how to make these things. As long as she’s happy and still getting her straight A’s, whatever.
Cool and his gang, or teammates I guess, managed to win their little preschool level soccer game pretty handily. I’m not saying it’s due to excellent coaching, but their coach is excellent, and very handsome. It doesn’t hurt that one little boy is particularly adept at dribbling and may have scored seven of the ten goals the team scored. I feel bad that we were trouncing the other team, because we were trounced last week and it’s no fun. Still, I guess these kids need to learn to lose at some point in their lives, right? I can’t take the really good kid off the field just because he’s so good. He’s the same age and his parents paid the same money for him to play, so why punish him for being a good little player? The others will catch up in due time, they always do.
Speaking of that handsome coach, here he is pondering something important.
He’s probably pondering what to have for lunch or whether or not he should drink beers the night before he has to run 10 miles on a Saturday. Do you notice that he finally broke down and bought himself some reading glasses? This is the first ever picture of him with glasses on! He doesn’t know for sure if he needs them, but they seem to help sometimes. Oh, and I ended up having a huge steak for lunch and yes, did drink beers the night before my run on Saturday. It was a terrible idea (the beer, not the steak).
Here’s the only proof I can offer as to the fact that I really did run ten miles on Saturday. Apparently, it’s hard for people to believe that my fat ass can do such a thing. I have a bunch of cynical fucktards for friends (and family), obviously. I didn’t run it fast by any stretch and it sucked balls, but at least I ate that entire large pizza by myself Saturday night guilt free!
So anyway, the point of this post was to point my fellow bloggers interested in the Blogger-Idol contest to this link so that you can play along, if you’d like. I submitted my first post and can’t decide if it will get me kicked out right away or not. I won’t be surprised to be out by Friday or win this thing, that’s how confused I am by the whole ordeal. It has been fun for me though. The other 12 playas, as well as the hostess, are all really fun, so that helps.
Here’s a link to the first “assignment” should you wish to give it a go. I recommend it! Write something that you wouldn’t otherwise write and get a little blog exposure at the same time. Win win.
