tongue on poll

Click to enlarge

(click to view the big picture)

Here are my coworkers and myself on this year’s Christmas… er, holiday card. I took all of my coworkers’ photos and a coworker manipulated them to perfection. Yes, my tongue is really that long.

Friday night was the office Christmas party. I had a good ol’ time. I dressed up in my dandiest garb and had a few very dirty martinis. The best part is I didn’t go alone this year, I had a hot date: the stunning Undead Molly (sorry your car got toad).

I'm Sore and It Feels Good

Winter is more or less here. How do I know? Well, today I went snowboarding for the first time this season and it felt great to be out again. I’m a bit sore and tired, but it still feels good.

I woke up early this morning (earlier than I do during the week) and went to Bolton Valley with one of my coworkers. He had never gone before so I offered to give him a lesson. I’m not the best teacher because I taught myself how to snowboard seventeen years ago, I know how to do it, just can’t explain it well. After a couple hours of instruction and watching him fall on his ass, he seemed to be getting the hang of it so I left him alone at the toe rope and hopped on the lift to the top of the mountain. I like going fast, but I took it easy because I didn’t want hurt myself the first day and there were a lot of morons to avoid on the trail.

I bought a season pass to Bolton Valley this year. It’s expensive (even with my discount through work) but it’s worth it: winter is more fun, I get in shape, and it helps prevent cabin fever. I’m trying hard to keep busy; I don’t want to lose my marbles mid-winter like the previous few years.

Found 2-D Haiku Collages

19:33

While digging around for something in my workroom I came… ahem… sorry, I came across a couple projects I did in college for a 2-D design class. I’m guessing the project was to write a haiku, then make a collage inspired by it using a 7×7 grid of one inch squares of paper torn from a magazine. I’m not posting them because they’re good or interesting, I just wanted to post something before I start losing readers.

In case you can’t read the text in the barely legible typeface…

Bright lights and crushed metal spin
My bloddy glass face

I also found my final exam for the same class. I don’t think the professor wrote this comment, it must have been one of my fellow students — everyone thought I was a over-achieving know-it-all.

Happy Merry Joyous Thanksgiving!

Since my biological family is spread out all over the country and meet in an undisclosed location somewhere down south for the holidays, I usually don’t have anywhere to go. For Thanksgiving this year the awesome, gracious gal Undead Molly and her nice parents were ever so kind to invite me over to eat a lot of food and talk about serial killers, Satanism, and other interesting topics. Thank you very much Hodgdons.

I am thankful for many things this year: my friends; Magpie; having a job that is interesting and allows me to afford food, a warm place to live, and all those things that occupy my mind and keep me somewhat sane; my iMac; the Internet; junk and antique stores; and you, my dear readers.

Bed Pan, Hook and Creepy Dolls

Today I spent the afternoon antiquing with Undead Molly. It was the most fun I’ve had in a very long time (I really need to get out more).

One of the places we went to was Five Corners Antiques (11 Maple St., Essex Junction, VT), which is one of the greatest places on earth. They have so many interesting things there. I always walk out with something and this time wasn’t any different, but I’d have just as much fun if I didn’t buy anything.

Antique Bed Pan

I have so many ideas for this bed pan (in addition to using it for what it was made for): make it into a picture frame; sign it with a fictitious name and display it as art like Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain); or use it to hold dip (black bean dip perhaps) at my next house party. The latter is least likely since I don’t know enough people to have house parties.

Antique Hook

I don’t know what I’ll do with this hook, but I’d think twice about breaking into my home while I sleep. I bet I’ll accidently hurt myself within the next few days.

Five Corners Antiques also has a nice collection of creepy dolls.

Crowd on the corner of College and Church Street on election night

After I voted last week I went home and watched the election coverage like everyone else on the planet. After it was announced Obama was the projected winner I went out on my porch to see what was going on. I heard a few people shouting but nothing out of the ordinary. I decided to go for a walk to get some air and see if anything was happening downtown.

I wasn’t far from apartment when I heard what sounded like a large crowd in the distance. As I got closer to Church St. the yelling got louder. When I got to the top of Church St. it was empty except for a few people running towards a large crowd at the intersection of College and Church Street. There were a few hundred people chanting “Obama” and “USA.” It seemed like most of them were college kids from the bars. Everyone was on their cellphone telling others to come down. I tried to take some pictures, but my batteries died right after I took the one above.

A few minutes after I arrived about 10 police cars showed up and surrounded the growing crowd in every direction. The cops looked very confused but managed to get the crowd out of the intersection. As the crowd moved towards Main St., I went home. Walking home, I passed a lot of people running towards the crowd and I could hear it all the way home until I went inside my apartment.

I arrived home just in time to catch Obama’s speech. I was impressed. I sort of feel sorry for him and the mess he’s inheriting.

This is the closest I’ll ever get to having something political on here. There are two topics I avoid like the plague: politics and religion.

The Drunk and The Hypocrite

01:01

While walking down the street this evening I saw an angry drunk guy walk right into a preppy college kid without even trying to avoid him. They both kept walking in opposite directions while exchanging a few words.

Preppy College Kid: “Excuse you.”

Hairy Drunk Guy: “No, excuse you. You’re the hypocrite!”

PCK: “Why am I the hypocrite?”

HDG: “Because you mask your fucking hate!!!”

The preppy college kid laughed, I laughed and the hairy drunk guy most likely had already forgotten what just happened.

No matter how bad I feel, at least I’m not that guy.
