Nobody Get's Out of Life Alive

Wow, look, a post! Because of an observation that I had to share.

I came from a corporate culture. Time is money and money is everything sort of place. A place where my boss was reprimanded because he had an unopened bottle of wine in his office that he received as a Christmas present.

Now I work for a non-profit, Catholic University. I have accepted that it's perfectly okay (if not encouraged) to drink alcohol at University functions (as long as they're after 4pm). Yesterday, we had a going away party for a co-worker and the department bought a lot of beer. Cases of beer. There's quite a bit left over, which is now sitting in our company fridge. Yep, right next to my little sack lunch is a case of Bud and several bottle of Corona. Yep, nothing goes better with a turkey sandwich than an ice cold one.

Too bad Homer Simpson doesn't work here.

While visiting my local coffee shop, on their blackboard it read "All you need is 20oz of love". If the 20oz would be love, what would 16oz bring me? "We just want to be friends"? What about the 12oz? "Please don't call me again"?

If I ever owned a coffee shop, what would my drink sizes be called? Because at Starscmucks, they have odd names for their cups. (As an aside, in Italian, Vente is "20" and Grande is "large" and Tall means nothing, they just want you to feel good about buying a small cup of coffee.) Perhaps I would name my cups after local mountains? But Mt Massive would be my medium.

What would you call your coffee sizes? Or what would you call your drink of the day?

Sorry, it's been forever since I've updated. My life has been pretty dull (with one exception), basically work and school and home, then repeat. But there is one exciting thing going on. Read about it behind the cut.

At the university I work for, we have this annual literary magazine. (And when I say magazine, I mean badly Xeroxed pages stapled into a booklet and given away for free.) And I'm thinking about taking a couple of the 200 or so drabbles I've written, polish them up (aka change the names from Wesley and Gunn to...ah...Wesley and Charles) and submit them to this magazine. Is this horribly wrong?

Should I submit already written drabbles to the literary magazine?

How many have your name?



According to this quiz, there are 3,017,684 people in the U.S. with my maiden name. Ah, I loved my old name. Everyone knew how to say it, how to spell it. It was beautiful, bland anonymity.

Yep, bought on by a bout of boredom and inspired by this week's challenge (insomnia), at open_on_sunday, I wrote a story which ended up being longer than 100 words. Woot!

I'm surprised by how many of you guys are saying that you have a long weekend. Until this job (working at a Catholic University) I never heard of people having Good Friday off. Hell, I use to work on Easter. So I'm just curious, how many of you people are lucky like me?

I can't help but notice this poll is a little bias.

I'm thinking about creating a journal for my real life. I'm not looking for a place where I can air out all of my drama, because I have none (thank god!). But a place where I can post my believes, my studies, my...I dunno, stuff. Real life, non-fanish stuff.

Whaddya think?
