Quandry

Mixing business and friendship -- I hate it.

You have to walk that fine line of trying to be their friend while closing out a business transaction. When it crosses that line of having to take a stronger business line than a friendship line is where I get scared. I hope they realize that I'm not trying to jeopardize the friendship but just complete out on what they promised and to do it in a timely manner.

The Green Room


The Green Room


I don't normally get paid when I work on some of the award shows done in NYC since I'm really just volunteer slave labor. However, when I saw that they were just going to throw this sign away and I *really* wanted the sign, all I did was ask if I could have it and they said okay. Let's just say I had more than a few people who wanted to kill me since I got the coveted sign and they got nothing.

I think I'll live.

But I need to get it framed.

Genius

So I read his book last night and giggled myself silly as I read each haiku. I insist on a sequel.

But I guess this is just more proof that I may be gayer than I originally thought I was...I found the page numbering system of spelling out the words rather than just the number to be kinda cool too...I'm into this whole art direction thing now for some reason. Maybe I'm just nuts....

Anyway...get this book...steal it from someone...anything...it's a total treat...

Just a moment here....

To those who have offered their thoughts, suggestions, ideas, et cetera on certain ongoing projects that I have under my managements (both personally and professionally), I only have one thing to tell all of you...

SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!

I am tired of hearing from you. Stop trying to foist your personal agendas on me because I am tired of hearing about it.

Where is Mike?

I have no clue where Mike was when he took this pic...do you know??? He won't say....I think it's just some freak ass Smurf Village...

Okay...who does he look like?

I'm voting Vin Diesel in drag...

The Case of the Returning TV

I was reading his post about his couch (oh and by the way, it was great meeting you this past weekend in NYC...wish I didn't have to leave so soon due to the bus leaving for the rugby tourney at 7am the next day).....anyway, was reading his post and it reminded me of the TV that I threw away...or so I thought....

I had this TV that I brought up with me from Florida when I moved to NYC back in 1998. This TV was ANCIENT. We're talking not cable ready ancient and we'd had it in the family since probably the late 80s if not more. Worked great. No complaints. When I moved from my apartment from Fort Lee, NJ, and into the apartment in Queens, I bought a new TV for the living room and was going to keep that TV in my bedroom.

The thing is...I never used the old TV in my bedroom. It just took up space. Finally, I just got rid of it and knowing how my neighborhood goes (and the neighborhood I live in now), if you want to get rid of something major and you put it on the street, someone will take it. One TV gone. I put it outside around 9pm and sure enough by 1am it was gone. Not that I was watching the window or anything, but I was one of those late night people who had a job that didn't require them to be in until 10am so I could go to bed late. I got a little curious as I was about to shove off to bed and happened to look down onto the street and saw it was gone.

No worries. Time goes by. Ancient TV is soon forgotten.

Almost a year later I'm leaving the apartment to go to work and I see a TV sitting on the sidewalk. It's the ancient TV I thought I had given up for good. Somehow, the magical TV fairies had returned it to in front of my apartment (and quite conveniently on trash day too). When I asked the Psycho landlady who lived downstairs below me about it, she was as clueless as I was about it. She thought that I just put it there that morning or the week before. No...it was MANY MONTHS before.

It's never been explained and all of my calls to NBC's Unsolved Mysteries went unanswered. As for the TV, I left it there for the trash people to collect. At least I think that's who ultimately took it. For all I know, it could be in someone's bedroom right now.

If you play, make sure you look at the title bar for an extra clue or two...

Microsoft Spyware Remover is My Friend

I've just had the office's help desk working on my PC for over an hour.

Using Microsoft's new spyware remover, it found almost 9,000 items on my PC all linked back to a new programs I downloaded to go with my old Pocket PC phone.

NINE THOUSAND.

I'm scared to download it at home and see what happens there....
