Still I'm On the Dark Side of the Moon

Hey, I guess Blogger doesn't want to let me put any photos on here today. So, you'll have to just close your eyes and think of Iowa instead.

Today was kind of blah. I still have my cold. I woke up at 5:30 this morning with a migraine and it took 2 pills and until 3 this afternoon to make it go away. I was stupid and punchy most of the day. For some reason, my pain brings out the goofball in my co-worker John. His last name ends in M-A-N. So, I always change it up and call him John Loserman or John Freakerman or my own personal favorite, John Quittalkingaboutyourpenisbecauseitmakesyouseempatheticallyinsecureman. All I wanted while I was so miserable with my sick headache, was for John to do his Forrest Gump impersonation and say, "I got shot in the butTOCKS". I even asked him nicely to see if he'd do it for me, but he couldn't stop laughing long enough to say it.

I finally got pissed-off and after my boss left for lunch I sang as loudly as possible, "Heeeeyyy, Macarena!" John hates that song almost more than life itself.

Hey sang back, "Heeeeyyyy, shut your mouth!" to the same tune, and he never once did he say, "I got shot in the butTOCKS," like Forrest Gump.

See what I mean? Today was so not one of my better days.

Gee, It sounds like you and John are really into each other. ;)

"shut your eyes and think of Iowa."


yeah, what's the deal with John? Besides him being from work and all and how awkward that would be blah blah blah...

The students at the school I work at are usually good sources of amusement. But then the funniest ones graduate and never come back, so a new batch has to impress me. One student made me a sign for my computer that reads "THE COMPUTER OF MORDOR: This computer responds to the one and only dark lord keeper of the one ring!" I've had it up for almost five years now. Can't bear to part with the sign.

If all I wanted today was for someone to say "I got shot in the butTOCKS" - life would be good

fringes said...

We all deserve our cranky days. Hey, maybe you can shoot Loserman in the buttocks yourself.

I miss having coworkers.

Only as freinds. He is much older than I am and happily married. The other thing I do, is write fake emails to his wife telling on him for eating the wrong foods or saying stupid things.


See what I wrote to Rel. He's just a good person for me to work with because he's 12 years old in his head too.


I've had some really fun students too. I kind of miss not training them anymore, but I don't miss all that extra work for no more money.


See? I don't think I was asking that much.


Nooooo. Niether one of us are into the other. We are just both nerds and goofballs. I think if either of us really liked the other, we wouldn't feel free to act like such total dorks.


You're only saying that, because you haven't heard me sing or act like a total dork yet. You would be singing a totally different tune if you had.


That would be hilarious.


I would love to not have to work and still be able to eat. We're probably both grass is greenering right now, huh?

I can't decide which is worse being stuck in my head now, Macarena or Forest Gump quotes.

Ouch! Now Forest Gump is singing Macarena!

Out out with your witchery!

dmarks said...

Sounds pretty....tense... there. Glad you two are not working in the post office, or it might make national news!

God, I got quick-onset-mystery sickness yesterday and have now ruined two otherwise perfectly good days. I am the single biggest pussy compared to you. If John can't step up and take care of his fellow man, what the hell. (I know that didn't make any sense, but I meant it anyway.)

laura b. said...

Wow, too bad I wasn't there. I do a great Forest Gump! I bet my Forest could totally kick John's Forest's butTOCKS!

Churlita said...


Forrest Gump singing the Macarena is one of the best things I've heard in a long time.


I'm not gonna lie. A lot of rubber bands get shot-off.

Booda Baby,

I know you can be earnestly nonsensical and I love that about you. Hell, I'm the same way.


Damn. I wish you had been too. I would love to hear your Forrest Gump.

Neil said...

I agree with Remiman... in the movie version, you and John fall for each other.

Churlita said...


I beg to differ. I think we're both happier the way things are.

In the movie version, could I please meet a really hot, funny, smart guy who isn't abusive or emotionally unavailable or have a drug or alcohol addiction but does have a job? Please?

I clicked over from Illiterati and OMG I think we may share a brain--I just did a post called "There is no dark side of the moon really, matter of fact it's all dark." Hahahahaaaa!
