The Dodge

I was in one of my moods the other day where I did not want to have anything to do with my manager. He hadn’t really done anything, but that morning when he called me to tell me he’d be late, he said we would have a meeting later that day: one of our department meetings where we go over the same information. I don’t like meetings, they are boring, redundant and meaningless, not to mention redundant. Did I say redundant?

He has a short term memory of sorts, though, so if I avoid seeing him, and if he comes by to tell me about meeting up and doesn’t see me, he’ll turn around, go back to his office and get preoccupied. Yes, I’m using his flaws for my benefit.

When he goes down one hallway to do something, I’ll go down the other to get to my office. I figure if he catches me sitting down, the jig is up. Until then, though, if I’m up and copying stuff and all, I’ll go to the ends of the earth and around to avoid his office. If he remembers we have to meet, he’ll call my name in the weak way he does that is equivalent to nails scratching down the chalkboard for me. He’s improved throughout the years though. Now he pronounces my name the correct way.

Anyway this dodging-the-manager game is really fun. I recommend it if you really don’t have to face your manager that particular day. You can actually get more work done when he/she doesn’t know that you have snuck back into your office.

Do Something Nice for the Environment Day

Here are some Easy Ways You Can Help The Earth.

This website lists 22 ways, but here are a few examples:

Use both sides of paper. If you have to scribble down directions or make a quick math calculation, don’t just throw the paper away when you’re done! Save it for the next time you need to jot something down quickly. Having a few pages of “scrap” paper around is a good way to keep yourself from wasting new sheets each time.

If you have a leaky faucet, catch the drips. If your faucet is leaking, of course you should get it fixed. But, what about the time before it’s fixed? Put a pan, bowl, or cup underneath to catch the water, and use it for something else like watering a plant, cooking, making Kool-Aid, or drinking! There’s nothing wrong with the water; it came out of the tap just like normal. Be careful! A leaking faucet can fill a coffee cup in 10 minutes, so watch the size of your container and how fast it fills up.

Snip your 6-pack holders. Countless animals and birds die from uncut 6-pack holders and other ringed packages each year. They get caught in the holes and are choked to death. Make it a habit to cut all the rings apart when you throw away a 6-pack holder!

Buy dolphin-safe tuna and other eco-safe products. Every day, dolphins get caught in tuna nets. You can do something about it! Check the label of the tuna you buy to make sure it it dolphin-safe, that is, catching the tuna doesn’t harm dolphins. There will be a special logo on the label to tell you if it is dolphin-safe.

I also learned from “Bill Nye the Science Guy” and “Sesame Street” that you can save water by shutting it off while you are brushing your teeth. I used to keep the water running while I brushed my teeth, not realizing I was wasting water.

House of 1,000 Movie Critics

This weekend I rented “House of 1,000 Corpses” and its sequel called “The Devil’s Rejects”. I didn’t post an actual theatre poster of “House of 1,000 Corpses”, because I’m thinking the majority of my readers don’t want to have the creeps whenever they check out my blog today. Neither of the movies are about shiny happy people. Actually, the only ones who are happy are the beyond homicidal maniacs. A pair of couples embark on a roadtrip through the outskirts of town looking for bizarre things to report. They meet a dirty, obnoxious and freaky clown (no, not Tim Curry from “It”) who, long story short, leads them to meet a completely psychotic family. I fear for the stupid victims throughout the whole thing. It was a movie that actually creeped me out.

Now “The Devil’s Rejects” was the sequel to “House of 1,000 Corpses”. The police raid the home of the psychotic family and the ones who get out are Baby, Captain Spaulding (the obnoxious clown) and Baby’s brother (who has a knack for making…eh…organic…ah..face masks) Otis. They hold a group of people hostage in a skanky motel and a sheriff who is the brother of one of their victims seeks vengeance on them. Mix in some jaw-dropping gore and you’ve got something that I think is much, much more intense than any of the “Saw” movies. The characters aren’t as endearing as “Hannibal Lecter” either.

By the end of “House of 1,000 Corpses”, my nerves were all on edge and I sat there with my hands over my face (not to block the view, just as part of the horrified expression I had every now an then while watching the movie) and when the credits started to role, all I could do was laugh and groan.

Odds are I won’t watch either of these movies again, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t left a mark on me.

Oh! I also watched “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” (very funny stuff), “Chicken Little” (too good) and “Walk the Line” (watched it a few times before, loved it).

April Calendar Suggestion Time!

Okay everybody, I’m calling you out for ideas for April. I have a few ideas from some of you (Nicotine and Alien), but I would like more suggestions. Some of you haven’t had a day designated for you on this blog. I’d like to be able to give you a holiday, so come on out with the ideas. I’m talking about people who have been recently visiting and also some who haven’t suggested anything before (ElFid, come out, come out wherever you are). You know who you are!

I ask for your neverending and inspiring wit and wisdom dearest bloggers! No pressure, though. ;)
