On Second Thought...

...maybe a dog is not a good thing right now. 

Mind you this comes after running outside a good distance chasing after she got loose and then having an argument with Sharon about it.

It dawned on me after realizing how much other things still need to be done before providing the constant attention we have to give a dog.  The thought of having a dog is nice; the implementation seems to be more trouble than it's worth right now.  I think I'll just settle for dogsitting for now

So Far, So Okay

So I slept on the couch so Lily wouldn't get too lonely.  She was whimpering a lot, unless she was literally by my feet.  So I had her by my feet, and then I realized that if I fell asleep, I might kick her or suffocate her (and that's why you don't let your newborns sleep in the same bed from you.  I learn a lot from commercials).

So I put her on the floor.  And then she started whimpering.  On top of that, I think I was scared to go to bed in case she pooed.  Needless to say, I only slept like 3 hours.  And she still ended up pooing on the floor when I woke up.

Whateves...all the joys of having a dog.  I just hope Sharon realizes that

We're Getting A Dog!

Well, dogsitting Lily for the weekend, anyway.  Yay!  (I hope.  See, Janice and Ken just left, and already she's crying.  I hope it'll just take her a while.  For some reason I see her getting used to us...when they come back)

Like/Not So Much

Like:  the look of a freshly shoveled driveway, especially in contrast to neighbour's who have yet to shovel their own.

Not so much:  shoveling

Happy Birthday Mama!

Jolly Ho!

So we just watched Slumdog Millionaire (in true Slumdog fashion...pirated DVD!).

I thought it was good, actually.  My wife, not so much (then again, not that much of a surprise considering she likes Indians about as much as I like Filipinos).

It almost makes me want to take up Bollywood dancing (again, my wife, not so much).

*  *  *

I'm serious with this whole "don't kill myself with work" this year.  For the third consecutive Monday, I called in sick.  Mind you, taking a mental sick leave is just as justifiable as a physical sick leave, especially with all the things happening.

So how do I spend a day off?  That's right, by stressing myself out with another thing; a thing I abhor.  Drywall mudding and taping.  Argh.

Luckily it doesn't have to be absolutely perfect because I will be tiling over it.  But still.

To tell the truth, I've been quite impressed with myself with this bathroom...the pace is just bustling!  So, of course, time for the inevitable slow down

And now, I have grouted.  I can see the end stages of the bathroom!  It's just a far, far, far ways away

The Curious Case Of How Inappropriate I Would Be

So we went on a date tonight.

Nothing but the finest dining:  Mucho Burrito (damn yum)

And then on to the theatre:  Benjamin Button

The movie was alright.  I couldn't help but think, though, that if I were to grow younger, what I would do as I would have already known my exact lifespan.  Like...what could I get away with?  On the flipside, it did make me meditate on my own existence and what lies ahead in the future.  We are told to take one day at a time; that everything in life happens for a reason.  I suppose.  Were Sharon and I fated to be with each other for the rest of her life?

Tile Machine

So far, so mediocre.  I just laid down the tiles in the bathroom (finally!); I suppose it went okay for my devirginizing experience in laying down tiles.  Just have to wait a day or two before I start the grouting.  Then the shower tiles, then counter, then the wall tiles, then the mirror, then the...aight, so I prolly won't be done anytime soon.  My future dog is prolly wondering what the hell is taking me so damn long.

My knees and back hurt...and thus rules out the future prospect of me being a floor installer.  Not that I ever wanted to be one.

Man, I'm getting old

It's The Little Victories That Count

To me, at least.

I was having quite the dilemma on how to cut a cutout in my huge tile.  I was going to bring it to Richard, but he is sick and unavailable.  So I went to Rona and bought a blade for my grinder.  I was thinking that it just won't work, or even if I did cut it out, it wouldn't line up on the floor.

Lo and problem!  This stuff just doesn't happen to me all the time.

However, I am coming up to my next problem:  actually setting down the tiles.  This should be interesting...

I Hate People!

So, what did I learn?  That people, especially and specifically people I work with who do nothing actually involved with work, are stupid, moronic and retarded.

That'll show me to be a trustful, friendly person.

Screw them all (except for, like 4 people)

Wings = Sloggy Mornings

So I went for wings last night, and I guess my body didn't get the message that deep fried foods was a comin', cause it was damn hard to wake up this morning. I noticed this: when I eat bad food, like wings, I wake up the next day feeling all sloggy (and don't get me started on how it affects my basketball game in the morning). I guess getting married to Sharon really helps...have I been eating this healthly? Really?!? I guess it also doesn't help that I went for a night cap of babbles with Argay.

It truly is a sign that we're not young anymore...he'll be a moving to the T-Dot with his "not serious" girlfriend (yes, Sharon, changing your relationship status on Facebook does indicate the truth of your relationships).

I'm kinda jealous in a way; while I love the house we're living in right now, he's doing the whole young, hip urban thing of "moving to the big city" that we completely bypassed. And it will do nothing but help both him and FeliBeli with their commute to their job and their relationship (I hope...don't say I didn't warn them about the, ummm, greatness that comes along with living with someone. Just ask Sharon!)

Although, I am pretty sure he is going to miss his Mummy and food being ready when he goes home. But whateves, I'm excited because now I have a new, very convenient excuse to go to Orginal's for wings cause he will literally live right across from it. (oh wait...isn't the whole point of the first part of this post being how wings made me not feel right? Oh to live an ironic life...)

Stress Leave?

You bet, especially with all the crap that's happening.

On a brighter note, our new front door is being installed as we speak.  On a not-so-bright note, it's friggin' freezing in my house right now.  Yay gas bills!

Who To Trust?

Apparently I trust the wrong people at work.  I now know who not to tell anything to.

I personally can't really believe this stuff at work is happening to me.  If they think they are going to fuck with me (that's right, I'm so mad I just swore), they have another thing coming.  Unfortunately, I just don't know exactly what that is yet.  I'll figure it out...

Mood:  frustrated, upset, angry, disbelief, sad.  All at once.  I'm not in a good place right now

You Don't Need To Know Where You're Going... just have to keep moving forward.

Yay ER

Well Then

This is a first in my career.  I thought it was over, my Supervisor and Manager thought it was over, but of course, it's not.

I think I'm dealing with a mentally unstable person, and as a result my name is basically being dragged through the mud.

"Verbal Harassment"

Are you kidding me?!?

Seriously, this is one f-ed up situation.  Let's see what happens as a result of this...

Go To Detention!

So I had that meeting with the Principle and Vice-Principle today (aka. manager and supervisor).  And it was exactly the way I thought it would go.  In other words: it was gay. 

With one exception (pointed out to me by Kathie):  why isn't the person who made the complaint about me getting reprimanded for not doing any work for the past 6 months?  I'm sure I'll mention that sooner or later

Degrassi High!

So apparently I'm in the middle of some "high school drama" at work, and I'm being cast as the evil bully.  And as a result, I have a meeting with management tomorrow.  I can't wait!

(I hope I don't get fired)

(Actually, screw that, I shouldn't hope for that considering I should really have nothing to worry about.  It's not like I don't work or anything...errrr....)

And That's Why I Wear A Mouthguard

Not because I'm some poser, but because of incidences like yesterday. It was the start of my basketball season (we actually that's what it feels like to win in basketball) and I got whacked in the mouth by another players head. I didn't end up bleeding (which I would've been if I wasn't wearing the mouthguard), but it still was quite a shot to the teef.
In fact, I went to the Dentist today to get some x-rays, and she said what I thought she would say: from this point, it's either going to heal on it's own, but if it gets infected I should call them again. In the meantime, everything I bite will hurt and on top of that, I think I burnt my tongue.
(and thus the reason I, ummm...called in sick to work today)

"I May Be The Best Man, But You Got The Best...Man"

Out of all the lines of my corny speech, I think I like that one the
Congrats goes out to Team Orleanne (or Jenando). Great time at the wedding today and good food all around. And my own wife looked stunning.
Orlando is in for a treat. I didn't know that Jeanne and Sharon were that much alike. And by treat, I mean "heckuva time" (not necessarily a bad thing)

Dawn Of A New Era

I finally cracked open the seal of the Mac,'s great so far.  In fact, it's, ummm...somewhat the same as a regular computer?  Not that I was expecting a night and day difference.  I do, however, feel smug now that I'm a MacMan.  Screw you PCers!

It'll just get a little getting used to.  I hope Sharon gets used to it (she won't have a choice pretty soon when we decommission the old computer)

The Mac Is...

...actually, I don't know. I still haven't gotten around to opening it. I don't know why I'm not more excited about it.
* * *
Tomorrow marks #3 as a Best Man, as I was chosen as one (probably by default). Jeanne and Orlando are getting hitched at a fancy-schmancy place (The Doctor's House), and it should be an interesting time. I should prolly start on that speech.
Oh who am I kidding, I'm just going to be cutting and pasting one they haven't heard yet...

Return Of The Mac (User)

So we bought a Mac back on Boxing Day, and I will finally open it up today. Let's see how this turns out...

I Went Craptors!

Good first game of the season to go to with Argay, Alan and Nads...they actually beat a team that is good!
The recurring theme? "Oh man, I forgot what it's like to hang out with guys".
Then we went to Mountain Equipment Co-op and I boughts myself a new bag for work. I'm still in the "deal-seeking mode" because my work gave me an allowance of $150 for a new bag every three years, and yet my bag only cost $50. I felt like I should've bought the most expensive bag I could afford. Filipino-alert! But whatever, I always enjoy getting new bags (seriously, I'm not a girl...I don't think)
Then we went to Federick's and ate all sorts of oily food. So far 2009 hasn't gotten off to a good start (health-wise). Okay,

Imagine If All Work Weeks Were Like This?

First day back at work, and now two days off.
That would be the sweetness if it were like this all the time.
Within the span of a week, Sharon and I watched Season 8 of CSI and Season 6 of CSI: Miami, albeit shortened seasons, what with the writers strike and all. But still, to go through 44 episodes over a week? That be some major couchpotatoeing!
