The Rent Is Too Damn High

I was going to blog about the nightmare I had about my 14 year old cousin behind the wheel of car, but I had to shove that aside to make way for this awesomeness that I caught on the news last night.

Mr. Jimmy McMillan and his "The Rent Is Too Damn High" Party. And yes, this is a legitimate party recognized by the State of New York. So legitimate that the man is running for Governor of NY. This is such an awesome piece of news that I'm not even going to take any more of your time by having you actually read the post. Just head on over here and watch for yourself...

Transformers 3

Yesterday on my way home from work, I saw 2 DC Police cruisers and HUGE Chevy Suburban Police Trucks speed down the street. What was unusual about the convoy were the extra pimped out Chevy trucks. The wheels on those monsters had to be about at least 32 inches.

This morning while dropping my cousin off at the bus station, some random men refused to let me enter the lot. Turns out Transformers 3 is being filmed in town and they happen to be storing their goodies on the lot. Below are a few pics I managed to snap:

These are the 2 pimped out "Police Trucks" that came flying down the street yesterday.

I also heard on the news yesterday that Bumble Bee ran into a real DC Police cruiser :(

Columbus Day Punishment?

Note to self: Get a Federal Government job asap.

Because if I had a government job, I would be sleeping along with all those federal employees who don’t have to go to work today because it’s a recognized holiday. But I don’t, I work for an employer which doesn’t recognize Columbus Day as a holiday. So instead, I woke up [an hour late- not by choice, I just couldn't wake up; actually I woke up about 2 minutes before my alarm was scheduled to go off to TURN IT OFF so I could sleep for 5 more minutes which turned into an hour] dragged myself out the bed and got ready for work. As I got to work, a volunteer at the welcome desk questioned me as to whether or not I was an employee. WHAT??!!! No, I’m not an employee, I just like to show up to random workplaces on holidays because I don’t have anything better to do with my life and besides it makes me look cool.

Anyway, I got to the office and found my lovely blue box sitting on my desk. What is a blue box you ask? Well, a blue box is a very special blue box that is sent out to existing customers by the lovely folks over at 4imprint Inc. which contains free promotional item samples. This time, I received a travel mug, a pen/highlighter combo and hand sanitizer. I've also received several other samples in past blue boxes- numerous tote bags, pens, mouse pads, pencils, pocket mirrors, calculators, koozies, lunch boxes, calendars, sport bottles, mini tape measure, some very random stuff, etc etc.

Some free stuff I've received in the past.

Two thumbs up for freebies, yay!

What is worse...

Than women who refuse to stop gossiping?

There is a difference between having a conversation and speaking in a soft voice because you don’t want disturb other working people and whispering because you are gossiping and you don't want other people to hear you! Guess what? I CAN STILL HEAR YOU and it's quite distracting. Take that tomfoolery out the door.
