August 31st

Posted: August 31, 2013 in Uncategorized

It’s about 7PM. I’ve been Googling (I shit you not) Small-Business Strategy, and other buzzword type thingys on the interweb for about an hour.


I think I got a few decent ideas to try out at the Fambiz, so that’s fun.

Like…did you know if you don’t pay taxes you can save like 33% a year? Shout out to commenter DumpsterDick732 for that tip.

I’m so ready for sleep. As I type this I realize that I’ve never publicly stated my distain for people who say “only X more sleeps before I…” as a way to indicate how long until they get to do something fun. Usually, it’s “Only 17 more sleeps before I see my baby punkin David”. Well, I hate to be a spoilsport, but punkin David is down at college, straight up RAILING some tang in between alternating his Facebook status from “Missin my boo” to “goin out with the boyz”

SO…if you are 18-23..stop saying “sleeps” to indicate the passage of time. If you are over 23…


That was harsh ish, here’s a picture of a bunny:


We good?


So I worked today from what…6:45? 7? 6:30? I don’t know…to sometime this afternoon, it all blurs together.



I did get to fit in some time with the friends at a Fantasy Football Draft for a few hours. We did an auction draft instead of a snake draft the main difference beingOHH MY GOD BEN SHUT THE HELL UP.

Not the most interesting thing to talk about, I know.

RAOK! Today was one of those that I don’t want to mention because blah blah blah. You’ll have to trust me that it got done.

I got a phone call from my friend Teresa today letting me know she was in town visiting from Utah. See, a phone call is basically a vocalized text that no one is comfortable using anymore.

Teresa and her boyfriend Shawn swung through and we had a nice convo about all the horrible things I eat, my alcohol tolerance, what it’s like to live in Utah (that was her, not me…I don’t know what it’s like to live in Utah…well I mean NOW I do because she told me…ugh, pay attention)

I surprised Teresa today because I told her I’d never heard of her shoes. I forget what they are now…Keens maybe? If you weren’t surprised that I’d not heard of them Teresa, let me know, and I’ll surprise two people tomorrow.

I give you my fat Thor promise
