my rant for the day

Recommended Posts

i'm at work right now and i'm surrounded by guys who shoot the shit about sports whenever it's breaktime, and then come around lunchtime...it's all about playing halo, and then after the game, they have to talk about it...this is everyday...and then the girls at my work - i just can't relate to them.

 

this shit drives me nuts. it sucks even more when my ipod isn't charged. i hate sports!

 

come on ladies (or guys), back me up on this.

 

your rant for the day...

^^ haha.

 

I’d fit right into that workplace. I can talk about sports all day all night. My buddy is getting Halo 2, which is supposed to drop in February. He’ll be taking some days off work, and I’ll be right there to join him.

what is the hype about this game anyway? they try to get me to play, but i'd rather get on 12oz or browse the internet or you know...socialize, go out to lunch with co-workers and actually talk?

 

i'm old-fashioned.

Excellent graphics, fluid controls/gameplay. No doubt that if that’s all they do, they are geeks, but hey, geeks can be cool. It’s the nerds that aren’t.

 

Have you seen that commercial for NHL Centre Ice? It’s a set of channels that plays every nhl game on tv for the season. In the commercial, this dude is in the office kitchen, and the boss comes in. He fails to start a conversation with him. Then a co-worker comes into the picture and starts talking to the boss about the game last night. The boss starts having a good conversation with the co-worker and the original dude gets all pissed.

I hope you’re wrong. That’s what my friend was saying, though.

i'm okay with sports, especially college and pro bball..

 

but i don't even know what "halo" is..

 

 

luckily i have some really cool coworkers.

all of them are foreign (greece, new zealand, uruguay, and germany) except one american girl besides myself.

 

our conversations are usually pretty fucking interesting...and all over the place in terms of opinions, info and ideas.

 

my old job, sheesh, it was almost entirely women.

being a delinquent graf writer, i couldn't relate to those bitches at all.

 

and my jobs previous to that? most were behind the line in the kitchens of my ghetto ass city.

i fit in ok with the ex-cons.

The other day in lab class, this guy in my group saw me doodling on the repair manual and started saying all this shit about graffiti. Telling me shit like “How would you like it if someone painted a naked woman on the back of your house?” This guy lives in extreme suburbia.

i wouldn't mind if someone painted a naked woman on my house,

but then i don't have a house.

 

it's like asking me why do i do graffiti - you can't explain why - you just do it bcuz you enjoy it

 

just like you guys enjoy sports, and halo.

 

i suck at dig dug.

I went to the Chinese mall yesterday looking for the seven seasons of Robotech on dvd (burnt). I couldn’t find it, so I’m gonna have to look even harder. I saw it at an EB Games, but it was going for like 650 dollars Canadian. I think I mentioned it on here last year. I still haven’t run that smash and grab mission.

my rant for today: i'm not at home. :(

 

i have no complaints about my co workers.

 

1. gay guy who gave me sedatives and pain killers. so flamboyant. owns the office dog named frayja. i can call him shaniqua.

 

2. the girl that works with me on the main floor, cool as hell. we quote old school all the time and she's funny as hell to. sarcastic like me. and always calls people "bitches." i dont get a long with girls much but if you are sarcastic and somewhat of a bitch, then you are more than okay with me.

 

3. cute guy who is married to this hot filipino girl. he gives me free stuff and he's nice.

 

4. old guy that we call "uncle jim". likes the fact that i can almost out drink him.

 

5. old guy that loves my fiance.

 

6. boss is cool. gave us two weeks off for christmas.

robotech is the shit!

 

last year was the first time i really paid attention to it b/c in the 80's i was too young to understand,

and let me tell you - i got sucked into the drama.

 

made me sad when Roy Fokker died.

Slave, I brought it up because you mentioned it in the cartoon women thread.

 

Captain Fokker dying was a tough pill to swallow when I was five years old. I read all the books when I was 12 or so, and they were actually pretty good. 23 in the series, I think. The only thing I have now is Macross Plus that I taped off tv. That’s the one with the singing computer that goes all psycho at the end. I really want to get these dvds. I didn’t even realize there were seven seasons to the English version.

How did you manage to come across it last year, slaveone? I haven’t seen any of the shows since I was maybe six or seven.

weapon x: my man scooped up the 1st box set about a year ago from this video place called suncoast, and then we had to hunt for the other box sets...there's a total of 3.

 

i have yet to play battlecry. i just can't get into games, unless they're from the 80's.

aw baseball's dope!! summer time, night games, garlic french fries, yelling at the umpire, the sun, expensive beer (but beers never expensive to me...its beer!), hot dogs.......

 

i cant wait.

 

football is okay. i get the game and i like watching it, but it doesnt really appeal to me. basketball died when i moved out here. and that was in 97 after the bulls won everything.
