Miscellany crapola

Or a bunch of stuff that really doesn't correlate with any of the words that you will see on the screen. Hey, I gave my A game yesterday with some solid advice. Yeah, that was my A game. That is what I got.

I didn't bother with Summerfest last night. Nothing of interest to me. Pearl Jam? Overrated. Just my opinion. Bodeans? Yeah, not bad, but that place must have been packed. Blue Oyster Cult? More cowbell!

I am heading out there after work today. Hopefully the power won't go out. Yep, big power outage yesterday that killed the music for a couple of hours. But the beer still flowed. Just without any sound to enjoy in the background. Now I better not hear any complaints from people that may claim the beer got warm towards the end of the outage. There are alternatives. They do sell bottled beer that is on ice so you still had cold beer available to you. People, you must know your alternatives!

Saw a commercial yesterday that irritated me but got me to thinking about how the white man can be continually be joked on but cannot joke back. The commercial was for either Sirius or XMFM. It should 3 white businessmen driving listening to rap, and of course, lip synching along while making the facial gestures like a rap star. It reminded me of the creepy Nextel commercial and the other white guys (with on Asian). There is another commercial showing totally white guy trying to be hip and rap as well. Why must we be stereotyped? Furthermore, why don't they show black people, all gangsta'd up, singing Motley Crue's Shout at the Devil or Anthrax's Indians in a commercial? Shouldn't it go both ways? I want to see some dude with mouth grills, big afros with picks, and basketball jerseys air guitaring, singing, and head banging.

I will have little work to do today. I am thinking of doing the unthinkable. Calling my boss to see if there is anything for me to do. I did it the other day and was told there wasn't. Yeah, you think I am crazy for doing this but I cannot sit here all day doing nothing. I am some things to get done but nothing that will take the entire day. If she says to do nothing, so be it. I score points by trying to find something. If she gives me work, hell, I am on vacation for the next 10 days, so I don't have to worry about getting stuff done. Works out well for me.

Plus, I am leaving early today.

Thinking about what I will see tonight. Toss up between the Harley riders and rednecks watching Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the freaky pierce-every-part-of-my-body and metal boys crowd at Everclear.

Have a great weekend. Drink all that you can handle. And rock on with your bad self.

I am also off for the next 10 days, but unlike you I am not going to Vegas. How else could I take 3 days of vacation and have 10 days off.
In agreement on your "white man" comments. Maybe we can get Eugene to do a piece on that one.

Go to Lynyrd Skynyrd, it will be like being in my part of the world.

I hate to tell you, but I am sitting in a bar right now working on my fourth drink. The only thing that sucks is the music that is playing, it consists of the Bee Gees, Jim Croce, and Creedance. With enough alcohol it should be tolerable.

Damn AWE. Jealousy factor rising.
