Living every week like it's Shark Week.

Can it just be Thursday please?

Thursday at 1, and it can't get here soon enough. I've already started
packing. Usually I don't start packing until I come home drunk the night
before I'm supposed to leave, and then when I get up at the crack of dawn
the next day (still drunk) I wind up packing five pairs of jeans, four
pairs of shoes and one shirt. Reeeeal smart, Steezer. Real smart.

But seriously, even though I just went to Seattle 3 months ago, I'm so
ready for a vakay. And the best part is that 13 days after i get back from
Vegas, I'm headed to Austin for 10 days. It's a hectic week at work trying
to get things finished before my boss leaves for a vakay of her own. But
since I'm the master of disaster, I'm not too worried about it.

Tomorrow we're having a departmental quarterly meeting. I wouldnt mention
it accept that last week it was alluded that we may be getting raises.
Then today I get the agenda for the meeting and the last 20 minutes are
devoted to "staff promotions and org chart." Now, i've only been here four
(almost five!) months, so it doesn't seem like I'd be getting promoted
yet. But in the same breath, we have a pretty top heavy department as it
is, so there aren't many people that they could promote that have been
here all that much longer than I have. I'm anxious about it. In my short
time here I have pretty much kicked ass, so take that for what it's worth.

One last note about Vegas...I realized last nite that I have a 5+ layover
in Milwaukee on my way to Sin City. I may try to leave the airport and go
visit "Laverne & Shirley's" apartment...or at least the bldg where they
make the Busch. But what this also means is that I can watch the NBA
draft. I think at this point everyone is resigned to the fact the Greg
Odeargod He's Thirty will go #1. No matter how much the media try and make
it melodramatic, they've seemed to be leaning that way from the get-go,
and nothing has changed much since then. I'm okay with KD going #2. It
doesn't matter where he goes...he'll be a hoss. In the paper today they
ran the list of the past 10 #1 draft picks, and I only recognized half
their names (TIM DUNCAN IN 1997 BABY). Even if Greggers has a successful
pro career, it'll be a short one, since he's due for a heart attack any
day now.

Today, June 21, 2007...


I got our EVP into the Reliable Source on page 3 talking about Tony
Bennett, and got our family festival a few pages over in Style-on-the-Go.
If you don't live in Washington or don't read the Post, you may not
appreciate how awesome I am, but you still best show some respect.

I've had roller coaster week with things not going my way, so this was a
HUGE lift in spirits. So thank you Mr. Tony Bennett. Thank you.

Reason #343 I'm so f-ing big time

Next week in the span of three days I'll get to meet and greet Ben Harper
and Tony Bennett here at work. Word to yo mutha.

I've declared a fatwa on Federal Express. Ninjas be messing with the
delivery of my bridesmaid dress, and I won't be having nunathat. I'll cut
a b*tch.

I'm back

Well sort of.

People been giving me sh*t about the complete lack of posting in recent
weeks. I'm sorry...some of us have a job to do and babies to raise. For

I will warn you that posts will continue to be sporadic until football and
television seasons start. That's all I really know how to talk about
besides drinking. And speaking of that, I read this morning that Miller is
putting out a new beer product called Chill that is light beer flavored
with salt and lime. Sounds delicious doesn't it!? God I want one right

My boss is out of town this week and we've got a film making it's debut at
a festival on Saturday nite. I've been uber stressed out by that. The cool
thing is that I get to hang out with the two directors on Monday when
they're here at headquarters and take them to their various appts. I'm so
VIP. We're also announcing our first original kids tv series, and on
Monday we have Ben Harper coming for a recording session in front of a
small audience of 50 or so. All of this is giving me pains in my side.
Though actually the pain in my side could just be from too much drinky
drink last nite. Yes I think that's highly likely.

Okay, so I promise to do better, and sincere apologies to Mealz and to my
newest fan Brian in Austin who just got married last weekend. As for the
rest of ye, cram it up your cramhole.

Why I love my new job

I'm presently sitting at my desk eating pop rocks. Pop rocks someone
brought in. Pop rocks in a variety of flavors.

The Smithsonian never provided me with free pop rocks. That's all I'm
