Blogging at Work

2 min read

So, I’m sitting here at work, wondering if they blocked me from using my xanga… like they’ve blocked access to personal email and stuff.

I think I shall test it.

The Scheme: I type all I need to say into this Notepad window, including html for the table, then a quickly as possible, using my amazingly fast, shinobi-like computing speed, I sign into xanga, open my entry editor, paste the code, and exit before anyone realizes why I’m clicking so fast. None will be the wise-oh.

In other news, I won a $50 gift certificate to Target from work yesterday.  Tarzhay? Tarje’t? I think I’m gonna go get a new lightsaber.

Statement:Also… I’ve become a corporate stooge once again.  Apparently, I can only find work with monstrous, multi-national corporations.
Sarcastic quip:My self-esteem is at an all-time high.

I celebrate today by wearing my 2nd favorite symbol of accepted foreign subjugation: the hawaiian shirt.

So, I’ll soon be a quarter century old. And altough I realize that 25 is quite young by today’s standards, I can’t help but think, “by golly, what have I accomplished as of yet?”  …nothing world-changing, wide-sweeping, unadulteratingly amazing.  Well, nothing you’d say, “WOW.” to anyway.  I mean… Galileo published his universal law of gravitation at 24. Orson welles had made his mark on TV, Films, and radio. Enoch Powell was a professor of Greek by 25. Alexander the Great conquered most of the known world by that age.  I… I haven’t even been out of the country.

But…I guess I could say that I’ve done other things.  I’ve been in 6 PCNs, co-wrote and directed one, wrote 1 passable song, performed in 20 UV concerts, been in 2 improv troupes, fell in love once, slept on a balcony in catalina, walked blindfolded through uci..twice, dislocated 1 joint, staffed spop twice, went ice-blocking thrice, had 4 different jobs in the last 2 years, took a month off from my last job cuz I was “sick”, read hundreds of books, bought 1 guitar, rode and elephant, played tackle football in the rain, “enlightened” myself at disneyland on more than 1 occaision, seen 4 musicals, ran into 4 celebrities, ran away from janet jackson when I was 4, misspelled the word “Occaision (sp?)”,and consumed at least 50 carne asada burritos over the last 10 years.

I’m quite sure Alexander the Great never had a single carne asada burrito.  Take that, world conqueror.

I’m also sure that no other man as ever run away from janet jackson.

I’ll content myself with the fact that I’ve done a bunch of really cool little things… even if they’re only cool to me.

Um… I guess I want to close this out by saying, whatever you think my opinions are on something… or what my values are… you may be wrong.  Why I bring this up now…who knows? I sure don’t.

  1. You forgot to mention that you only graduated from the best university in the world before the age of 25. Commendable I must say. The bigger issue at hand is the work that you will be doing for the next 25 years. If you do the same thing that you’ve been doing, you’ll have 50 years of work experience when you turn 50.
