We Gonna Roll Like Mickey and Mal

Headed north on the 101 right now. The shuttle is conspicuously empty. This means one of a few things
1. that people are bouncing from work earlier because its summer
2. that my normal 9 hour workday (plus shuttle time) is no longer cutting it
3. there is an mba event this evening so the n00bs filling my bus in the morning are not filling it up this evening
I am guessing its number 3.
Work day was fairly legitimate. Still going on really, answering IMs as I shuttle north.
On a somewhat related note, Sara is heading back to the bay area and El Goog in August. I am pretty excited that she is coming back but I am nervous that her leave has made her painfully optimistic and my incessant bitching will be met with responses like "have you thought about that situation from their perspective" or "why don't you just tell that person how you feel, we are all just people here". Good God. Welcome back Sara!
The bus driver is giving me the audio cues that it is about time to hop the shuttle. This driver likes to remind everyone to bring their personal items and enjoy their evenings.
Oh, I will.

see you tomorrow, boss

For the record - I am not Nelson's boss.
Nelson, you get the prize for most open ended comment. Was your intention to warm my heart simply knowing that I would see you tomorrow (today) or was it rather some form of dig against me? Actually, don't answer that. I just want to enjoy the rest of my commute thinking that you were trying to cheer me up. Perhaps that will keep me from picking up the macbook pro sitting in the middle of the shared table, which some fucking intern apparently thinks is his personal space because he got on the bus before me, and smashing it on the ground. Yeah, dude, you are an intern, congrats, oh, you have an iphone, cool, so does everyone else here, ps. you're dumb.

Valerian. Or less GTAIV.

Matthew Lewis said...

Fair enough. Our intern seems nice. This guy was not nice, and he had a butt-hole haircut, and he was picking his nose. Just putting that out there.

I did play GTAIV last night. I played online with some dude who was quite adept at running around dropping grenades at my feet. I jumped as he ran a car into me and he knocked me onto the roof of a building. It was the hardest I had laughed all day.

But can you pick your nose in GTAIV? And if so, do you get points for it? And if so, does it matter how many knuckles you can insert? And if so, is there a record somewhere that is currently being assaulted? And if so, is MRL in the top ten?

Nelson made a comment that I should post pictures of the people on the bus I blog about. I will see how feasible this is. Oh, and it seems like its about time to put some form of disclaimer on my blog as the readership (and comment base) has begun to include a critical amount of people I work with. In fact, I got a comment from Dougherty earlier that he was reading "early warning signs" between the lines of my blog posts. This from a guy who stalked an elderly nude bather.

If not, then I see a niche market for add-ons. Also, as apparently the only non-work-related commentator (on this post anyway) I can safely say that I am not wasting Google's time or money. Though there are some legitimate warning signs that I am disrupting the comment base space/time continuum, since I specifically recall being stalked at the hot springs a few years ago.
