Oh, you know … this and that

See you later, Charter. That’s what I am going to be saying officially come Sept. 3 and I have DirecTV installed. I updated my Twitter with a status saying something along those lines, and I actually received a message from Charter asking if they could help. Um, wut? It ties into the whole reason why I am leaving them, actually. Which, if you think about it, is kind of funny. I’ll see your addition of the NFL Network (only in standard definition so far, by the way) and raise you NFL Sunday Ticket for free, thank you very much.

Must…keep…writing. I know this is helping the writing process, but it’s tough to just write every day. Maybe if I had a desk other than the one at work. Is that a good enough excuse when I have a kitchen table that’s perfectly capable of hosting my fat ass in a chair and my laptop on a flat surface in front of me so I can type without trying to balance it on my thighs? I know it isn’t. But the most writing I ever did was when i had a desk, so my brain tells me, “You need a desk to write.” Fat chance of that happening any time soon, though.

New Rule: If you’re going to eat at your desk, do it quietly. And do it with food that’s appropriate to eat at the office and not in the comfort of your own home, like, say chicken wings. Also, if you’re going to have a crunchy snack — be it chips or carrots or an apple — for the love of God, keep it down. Always, always, always chew with your mouth closed and never, never, never talk with your mouth full. Seriously, people. This is Eating Around Other People In Public 101, isn’t it? Nothing worse than trying to have a conversation with a colleague while they’re sticking a bone in their mouth to suck off any and all meat on it. **Shudders** Or, when the person takes a bite out of their meal and then starts the conversation with you. For the love of all that is holy, etiquette, people. Etiquette.

That was fun.

Catch you on the flip side.
