From Birthdays to Bombers

Today was the first day this week I’ve spent my lunch break in front of the computer; I’m actually lamenting that fact. And due to a combination of really advanced planning and my obsessive need to know RIGHT NOW, I spent my lunch hour (or so) doing a cost-comparison of ways to celebrate Mia’s birthday. Specifically, ways to celebrate that involve a theme park and/or a water park. Maybe even a birthday “party” tacked on at the end. It’ll be a long weekend, to say the least. But, hey, you only turn four once, right? (Okay, maybe not if you’re CW . . . always striving for adolescence.)

I’ve been spending more time around my coworkers than I’d ideally like, and it’s really a shame I can’t write about them more. Because my office is quite the collection of interesting characters. Like our business/bookingkeeping/office manager/whatever-the-fuck who was a cheerleader at this high school; there is, likely quite literally, no subject that is sacred to her.

In the world beyond the walls of my office, we’re gearing up to celebrate our independence from a nation that, quite frankly, is probably glad to be rid of us. I’m actually gonna kick off the weekend by watching our former rulers whoop some Portuguese ass at the World Cup (or, else, I’ll be out five bucks).

  2. your little one already four years old?  I think when I first started reading your blog, she was a newborn.  How time flies.  We go way back, don’t we, Scott-san?

  4. SJ: My friend Patricia had been offering to host me for quite a while. I haven’t gotten around to actually purchasing the KL domain. I probably should, though.

    THB: Yes, although when she’s whiny and/or having a tantrum, time really slows down.

    Marsh: I think I need England to win the whole thing. Preferably by beating Argentina. Might not be good, though, for me to win my own pool.

  5. I’m pretty sure allen’s determined not to get a FT job until the World Cup is over.  Maybe that’s been his plan all along....

  7. Erin: In regards to the concept of “advance planning,” Mia’s birthday is in August.  LATE August.

  8. Yeah, your wife already helped me work that out. At least my heart was in the right place.
