1 day until Return of the King. Tomorrow’s the day! Yay! I’m trying to keep the excitement in check, I’d not to be able to accomplish anything else because I’m obsessing over a movie.
Work at DMNS was great yesterday. While my boss was gone, I got to know the 2nd in command, Rich. I learned a lot, and I catalogued my first artifact. While my drawing of it sucked, I was at least descriptive. I also helped to move a 200 lb rock. Things will be slow in our dept. until after the holidays, but I may try to clock some more hours.
I’m pretty excited about our trip to the frozen tundra known as Canada. Well, as excited as I can be leaving my kitty, and going where it’s colder. 🙂 I hope it will be relaxing, and I’ll bring some books to read. I grabbed a few from the library yesterday, The Beloved Disciple (Beth Moore), & The Gospel Reloaded: Exploring Spirituality And Faith In The Matrix (Chris Seay & Greg Garrett). I may attempt to bake today. It’s not my strong suit, but I thought it would be a nice gesture to give cookies to our neighbors in the spirit of Christmas. Pray for me. 🙂
Everything else is good I guess. I have to work on the spare bedroom a little more to make way for the bed that is coming. Looking at the room, it’s hard to imagine a bed fitting in here.
That’s all from here. I’m out of control adding things to my Amazon wishlist. But season 1 & 2 of Newsradio comes to DVD in February! How could not add that? I’ll include some quotes so you get how awesome it is.
[Talking about his vacation in Japan]
Matthew: You would’ve loved it, David. A week in a foreign country, strange people, strange customs…
Dave: Oh, I know what you mean. I’ve been to Canada.
Dave: Bill, haven’t you ever heard the expression, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade?”
Bill: Dave, haven’t you ever heard the expression, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, and then throw it in the face of the person who gave you the lemons until they give you the oranges you originally asked for?”
[Reading cards from the complaint box.]
Dave: “You suck.” “You suck.” “Howard Stern rules.” “If you can read this you are a dork.” “Coupon for one free kiss from Joe if you are a girl.” “We need more complaint cards.” “Coupon for one free kiss from Joe if you are a guy.”
Dave: [pulling out a fortune cookie slip] “You will go on a journey, happy long time.” “Matthew is a moron.” “No I’m not.” “Yes you are.” “No I’m not infinity.” “Yes you are infinity plus one.” And this one, “I have doobie in my funk,” which I assume is some sort of reference to the Parliament Funkadelic song, “Chocolate City.” Uh, “You got peanut butter in my chocolate. You got chocolate in my peanut butter. Together they taste like crap.” “Matthew has been staring at me all day… and I like it.” I don’t think I get this one, it says, “I try to be good hard-worker-man, but refrigemater so messy, so so messy.”
Lisa: I think that one’s probably from Milos, the janitor.
Dave: Oh. Refrigem—oh, then that one’s legitimate.
[continues reading the complaint cards]
Dave: Uh, “Who’s the black private dick who’s the sex machine with all the chicks.”
Bill, Beth, Lisa, Matthew, Joe: SHAFT!
Bill: I thought we’d all enjoy that.
Dave: [reading one last card] And, “Help, I’m being held prisoner in a complaint box,” which is actually kinda funny.
