I went to work, grocery shopping, came home and watched a crap-ton of 30 Rock. And honestly, with general readership down and the following/fanpage being all stagnant-y, it's hard to be motivated. Which of course is a vicious cycle in and of itself because if I write tiny, lazy posts then of course my numbers are going to go nowhere. But when have I ever bothered with proper logic?!
(The answer is never)
So two weird things happened at work today, which is slightly disappointing in comparison to yesterday's like, seven weird things. Today, when we put an old Thomas the Train video on to make this one little boy stop screaming, I learned the wacky old narrator of the train's adventures was GEORGE CARLIN.
Ok, that is the Carlin we know and love. Now hang on to your hats if you happen to be wearing any...
AGH! It's like some kind of elaborate joke! I kept waiting the whole time the video was on for him to bust some "cocksucker motherfucker etc. etc." it was like some kind of weird torture! So is this common knowledge? Am I the last one to learn this? My mind, she is blown.
Also, during my afternoon shift at the front desk, when members come in to work out, you scan their membership card and all their info pops up on the computer. So I scan this one guy, average looking, maybe thirty. He goes through the door and I go to clear his info off the screen and froze. His name was Jared(unimportant) S. Morgenstern. For those of you currently not having a geektastic seizure, you had a horribly deprived childhood:
(aside: this is the first time I ever coded a video to start at a specific time. Big deal for a normal person? No. For spazzy me? Yes!)
And really that's it. But isn't it enough? ...Maybe? ...Possibly?
