Next week, I’m off to Kentucky on business! it’s just a day trip, but you know what that means: free breakfast lunch and dinner. Oh baby, you know I’m ordering the prime rib. Heck, I’m getting two.
Not only is SouthBend right near Gary Indiana… there’s a Wells Fargo place just down the street.
if I meet a librarian named Marian, I’m quitting my job, shipping my saxophone to Indiana, and starting a marching band.
So! I have been in Indiana for the past few days, and I have to say. it’s been pretty interesting. The work has been long and hard, and the dinners have been delicious and free.
Tonight we went to a cosino in Gary Indiana, and as we were chowing down at a buffet Milli Vanilli’s (sp?) hit song ‘blame it on the rain’ started playing over the casino’s speakers.
it made me think, what ever happened to Milli Vanilli after the scandal was revealed? Did they ever figure out who the real singers were? If you know, please post a comment.
Hopefully I’ll have other fun Indiana posts in the near future. And, I lost $4.45 cents at the casino.
In anticipation of my upcoming departure to South Bend Indiana, I thought I’d check out the official South Bend website.
Should I be concerned that the #2 headline is: Keeping grass under control?
The second most important thing in their town at the moment is growing grass?
I’m concerned for my sanity.
So my Indiana trip was delayed. The big wigs had me come in on Saturday to work.
The entire purpose of a job is so that you can afford luxurious weekends of living in excess. When those weekends are taken away, it’s a major drag.
On those especially tough days at work, I crack open a kool aid packet, add some water cooler water, and oversaturate my solution with sugar. The end result is a taste sensation that keeps me wired for the duration of the day.
Today’s flavor is: Tropical Punch.
At work today we had a free pizza luncheon in celebration of meeting a deadline that was looming ominously over our heads. As usual, I insisted on stuffing myself with as much free eats as my stomach could hold.
This made me notice that no one else in the room was really cramming the foodstuffs. I think my behavior stems from my college mantra of never knowing when my next meal might come. Like a primitive beast, I would inhale as much as humanly possible in fear that my next decent meal might be days or weeks away.
now that I have a more regular eating schedule, I’m curious how long I will continue with my previous strategy of ‘eat until it hurts’.
well, it’s official: I am going on my first business trip.
“but to where?” the ladies across america ask
No… not California, nor Vegas. not even Washington D.C.
What’s in indiana? Very little. But, I’ll be there from the 2nd through the 13th of August putting together a giant piece of machinery. two weeks!?!? I suspect that this will be very near torture. Don’t get me wrong, there will be all sorts of perks:
1. free food. And believe me, I’m going to eat like a king.
2. free laundry. I’m going to be bringing all of my dirty clothes with me.
3. frequent flyier miles.
4. discover cash back bonus becuase I purchased the tickets myself
then… there are the un-perks
1. late hours of work
2. a weekend… lost (we will be working through the weekend)
3. early mornings
I am a bit excited. But a bit nervous too. Hopefully I’ll have frequent access to internet. sigh.
