every time I sit down to blog like an adult..

Something like this happens.

Ok. It was a little crazy there for a minute. But I'm ok. I'm back. All I've been doing is working, sleeping and ordering pizzas. And avoiding everything else. That is, everything else outside of the work-sleep-pizza dynamic (er.. tribunal..). That's why I incorporated a triangle into the design of my business card. Not (as many of my classmates thought) because the triangle is soundest shape for construction bla bla nonsense. No. The triangle is there to represent work-sleep-pizza. That's all. It's a subliminal message about my attitude that I was hoping to get across to potential clients. It sounds terrible, right, I know.. But think about it (God knows I have.. ), at the end of the day, who do you want working for you? Work-Sleep-Pizza? Or Work-going-to-Hawaii-going shopping-have-a-hair-a-appointment-I-need-some-space-it's-not-you-it's-me-reservations-at-the-Plaza-redoing-the-kitchen-I'll-have-to-check-my-palm-pilot-chocolate-martinis-caviar-and-later-eight-hot-pockets-I-stole-this-scarf-from-Hermes-last-year-and-my-lawyer-cut-a-deal-with-the-judge-which-explains-this-tracking-device-around-my-ankle-so-now-I-can't-wear-boots-all-winter-(or-skirts)-can-I-put-you-on-hold-a-tylenol-two-valium-and-a-part-of-a-doughnut (a loaf of bread a carton of milk and a stick of butter* )? (the above loosely based on my downstairs neightbor. I don't really know her. It's just a vibe..) I mean that isn't even a shape. That can't even be translated into a shape unless it had like a thousand points (very prickly!) or was more of some kind of amorphous blob. How are you going to put that on a business card? No. Work-Sleep-Pizza ROCKS, and not just as a lifestyle..

  7. A loaf of bread....A carton of milk.... and a stick of butter......Then, as our hero keeps repeating these lines, he gets sidetracked on his way to the store. Instead of repeating a loaf of bread...etc... to himself, he begins to say things like...'a baseball game, a baseball game, I've got to remember a baseball game...' then he gets to the store and can't remember what he went there for... but, alas, our hero pulls it together and gets that loaf of bread, and that container of milk and that stick of butter. Yes, I remember that well. In fact, I often find myself saying those lines to myself, the same way people might get songs stuck in their head. What a weird ear worm to have stuck inside my brain these past 30-some years. At least now I know I'm not alone. God Bless Sesame Street. - Otis

  8. You might also remember the man who misplaced his letter J ..it was under his hat the whole time. It was a capitol J, and it was purple.
    I could go on and on..
