I sometimes have to wonder about people's fascination with my relationship.

My parents "harass" me about the when's of a) am I getting married and b) having children.

A former acquaintance said to me today, "I am amazed you've been sticking with the same penis for so long." (And that is pretty much verbatim.)

And my friend's drunken Polish father last night at a holiday dinner, having just met us both pretty much, "When are you two going to stop just fucking around and get married?"

I didn't know the intricacies of it all could be so compelling and interesting to so many people.

Next Year's Predictions!

CANCER (June 21–July 22): I nominate you to be the zodiac's most successful complainer in 2007. According to my analysis of the omens, you could excel at formulating brisk critiques and constructive dissent. You may even have a genius for bringing the bracing intelligence of the heart to bear on situations that are paralyzed by mind games. If you manage to fulfill the potential I'm prophesying, you'll set in motion far-reaching ripples of benevolent change. More power to you, Cancerian! May your grumbles and squawks and protests be imbued with lyrical persuasiveness.

I have ABSOLUTELY no problem with this.

Glass Ceiling

"Shatter the glass ceiling that holds you back."

I know this is typically meant for the corporate world, due to men getting promoted more quickly than women, etc, etc... But I think it should apply to any situation where you're feeling trampled upon, held down, used up or taken for granted. There is nothing more depressing and self-defeating that letting others form your opinion of yourself by the way they treat you. I guess my lesson today is that I need to demand better treatment and not stand for less than what I give.

Why have people seemingly forgotten the golden rule?

Today's Feelings

If you ever want to leave I'll be ok
As long as I have the memories of today
I'll be sad but if you're happy then I'll smile
Cuz I had the love of you for awhile

The Essence of Verdun

I truly belong in the neighborhood where I live. I am sitting here drinking a Labatt Blue and eating hot dogs and I think it's the happiest moment of my day... if not my life.

Now if only the Habs were on tv...

Work XMas Party

A work Christmas party is always a touchy affair. There's always the people who get too drunk, too early, the ones who dance, the ones who think they can dance and the ones who hook up with each other. So much food for work gossip. My work party was last Thursday. I detest work parties pretty much but the pressure was on to attend and since I want to make a good impression, I agreed to go.

We had to pay, first of all, which I think is just CHEAP on behalf of my extremely profitable company, but oh well, at least I got a couple drinks out of it. They were watered down and small and did nothing for someone with the alcoholic habits of a priest in seminary, but I digress.

I arrived there and it was HELLA cold out. But the venue was something I wanted to check out and if only for that reason, I am glad I did. I spent the better part of an hour perusing the crowd for people I knew. I recognized a few people from the office, but was basically shunned and quickly became irate at the whole ordeal. Because it was definitely becoming an ordeal.

There were the people trying too hard - BALLGOWNS at a Christmas party??? and then the rude self-important people who categorically refused to move when you tried to get by and excused yourself.

My one moment of sanity was that my friend was dj-ing and when he went on break for the shows and band, who incidentally sang songs such as "It's Raining Men" and badly, well we hung out. We made fun of the whole thing, I ate about $100 worth of passable sushi and then I called it a night when the boy called me and my friend was going back to dj to a crowd of dolts.

I came, I saw, I left.

Today's Rambling Thoughts

Biting can be fun AND profitable!

And in this day and age, with such technology, medical advancements and general stylish people in abundance, there is absolutely no valid excuse for having a unibrow.

No wonder they get up to so much "monkey business." ba-dum-dump!
