My favorite gift
I think the coolest thing I got this year was 3 sessions with a personal trainer. Why? Because I didn't ask for it, I didn't know I wanted it, but it turns out...it's a pretty awesome gift.

That, and my Kanye West CD....fuck a 50-cent. I thought if he lost he was gonna quit the biz? Life would be better without him making "music."
You would think these guys had never seen a girl before...
So they hired a new girl at work. The way the guys around here are acting, you would think she was the only single female on earth. Whispered conversations, plans with ulterior motives, and objectification runs rampant. I remember the last time there was a single cute female who worked here, she couldn't spend five minutes at work with out SOMEONE stopping by on their way to get coffee.

"Oh hey...just gettin' some coffee....soooooooo, what is UP?"
I wonder if that's how this one will go down? More likely, the young lady in question is over qualified and will be moving to a better job soon. That's typically how these things go.
Personally I'm pretty sick of it all. It seems that at every avenue in my life there are people just USING everyone else. Oh and it goes both ways here ladies! You don't get off the hook.
Check this conversation I had the other night.
"Oh hey _______, nice seeing you here"
(Jokingly) "So are you here with Boyfriend number one or Boyfriend number two?"
(Dead serious) "Number one, and keep that shit down, he's around here somewhere! Oh hey, _______, this is Ben"
*shakes hands, and gets the once over from from Boyfriend number one*
*Hey Ben, nice to meet you"
Oh I know that stare too. I used to give it all the time. It's the "are you screwing my GF too?" stare. I didn't need to "Keep that shit down," Boyfriend number one TOTALLY knows whats up.
But I digress, everyone seems to be using everyone else for something these days. It's like Generation-i's culture of me me me is slipping in to my generation, and I for one am trying my hardest to NOT be a part of that.
I am out of socks
I'm out. Like I don't even have the goofy tan ones, or even the nice dress up black ones. They are all in the hamper. I am completely out of socks. So I go and do laundry last night, and as I separate my colors, I feel as if this is not my whole sock collection. Oh, there are socks in there, but only like, 3 pair! So now I'm all paranoid. Are there are little sock stealing elves in the house, or maybe someone helped themselves to my socks, because THEY were out too?

So I gather up the few remaining socks, and take them down stairs...and there, on top of the dryer, are all my socks! I had already DONE a load of laundry, and left them down there! Socks Galore! Mystery Solved. And YOU just wasted 30 seconds of your life.

I hate the two-door Honda
Every day I get into it, and I tell it: "You are a slutty little bitch, and Daddy hates you." Why? Because its not this...

A 2007 Ford Mustang Convertible. Black exterior/interior, power roof, leather seats with seat warmers. Premium Sound system, and the "pony upgrade kit" which as near as I can tell...just makes it sportier with logos, paint jobs, and a rear spoiler.
And it can be mine for the low low price of $27,500.
So now when I get out of the two-door Honda, I just look back at it in disdain and tell it as I walk away "All you are good for is a $6000 trade in." I've also taken to calling her "Scrap metal" or "Scrappy" for short. She knows what's in store for her, and that's the way I like it.

Got some pictures of the other night when we were painting.

They are down at the bottom of the album. Thursday we are working on the hallway, so I can get that ladder out of the house. I'm NOT looking forward to getting up on that ladder, but at least while I'm up there, the rest of it will be getting done by my helpers. You really find out who your friends are when they tell you they WANT to come help you paint your house. :)

Spring Cleaning in December
I deleted a photo album on the photo's page. The Door county one...cause...you know...who needs that? But not before saving one of the images, this one!

Good old Juddville. I thought there was one of me pointing at it, but apparently not.
There's also a new one in "Pictures of Me" from McCormicks this fall. But you have to go look at at it with the link on the right. I don't feel like posting it.
Perks of being a doorman
Not only do you get to take pictures of the ladies when they ask you to, if you play your cards right they fondle your chest and tell you how much more they like you than the other doorman. I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and say that this working out thing is making an impact.

You also get to witness one hottie scolding the second hottie for acting like a "ho." And how hottie number two needs to "class up" and "respect herself more."
And really thats what it comes down to I think. Self respect. I always thought it was about making the other kid happy, but at the expense of your self respect? Is that worth it? I don't think so anymore.
Of course there is a downside to the doorman gig. I woke up at 5 am on Friday...not a good start to my long day. So yeah, I was up from 5am Frday - 3am Saturday. You did the math...thats 22 hours. Then to top it off, I only slept till 8am. Had to get to my Saturday job after all. I MAY finally know what LB feels like. I mean, I'd probably have to do this 5 or 6 days in a row to REALLY feel what she feels, but this is kinda close I think.
Another room down...
And you do NOT want to know what was behind that couch! But Zelda is off the wall, the TV room walls are a nice shade of blue and we have the entire first floor painted now. There is the little matter of the stairway and the upstairs hall. But other than that...its comnin' along like gangbusters. Aaron and Judd have expressed an interest in painting their own rooms, which I think is super cool. It's nice to have people interested in the quality of the space we share, and even better that they are into improving the space they don't share.

Last night was a blast. Flach and Elaine came over, Aaron and I were pretty much ready for them when they showed up. All we had to do was wash the walls and paint em. We had already gotten all the furniture out of there, and the wall plates off.
Beers were drank, cupcakes were consumed, and no one fell off the ladder. There were conversations about tools, and who had the best one...like best paintbrush...jesus, sickos! An interesting fact. Given boobs for a day, its a known fact that we guys would just stare at them, and play with them all day. Given a dick, census says, girls would lock themselves in a room all day and masturbate. All in all a successful gathering.
Oh and fear not my "flaky friends" (you know I love you!), there will be other nights or weekends for you to come help out with. There are lots more rooms to be taken care of :)
It's prohibition baby!
Today is the anniversary of the passing of the 21st Amendment. The 21st Amendment repealed the 18th Amendment. The 18th Amendment instituted prohibition. So in honor of this glorious day, I will be exercising my constitutional right to drink alcohol...in excess.

And with all this snow on the streets, driving home drunk will be EXTRA fun. It will be like the "snow level"...its easy like the first level, but you slide all over the place, and thats the challenge.
Here's the tree, and little squeaker-bell, as she can't let me take a picture with out getting in the frame....that little princess.

Deck the halls
Well...painting extravaganza 2007 went into phase 2 last night. We painted the front room a nice tan color, to match the new green kitchen. Then we got the christmas spirit, and put up some lights and garland, and spruced the place up. A few choice pictures are below, but the whole set is on the photo page. Today we got the christmas tree. 7 years in this house, and every year SOMEONE says "we should get a Christmas tree" Well this year I finally did it. And what do I get as a response?

"I will NOT have the Christmas spirit shoved down my throat"
