Tree Hugger's Lunch  

Saturday, February 19, 2011

I have to say, I love my Cutie Cutlery Rolls. Not only do I love making them I also love that they are environmentally responsible. Why? You use your own cutlery from home, and it won't fall out of your lunch bag. Denise had lost a few of my knives from my last set of flatware that way.

I've yet to see a work lunchroom that isn't depressing. My rolls are so cheery that it is the one bright spot of decor in the whole room. Happy lunch.

Be good, make yourself happy. Hug yourself a tree.

I am Wolverine - Titanium Skeletal Frame, Check  

Friday, February 11, 2011

So I have always had a pet theory that my bones are unusually strong. I've never broken a bone, and I've fallen a lot, times when I think I should have broken something I never have.

Once, in my mom's house, I was in the shower, washing my hair, and I hit the window in the shower with my elbow, and broke the window. I cut my elbow to the bone, nearly passed out when I saw bone. No breaky.

I've fallen out of trees ( lots! ), off monkey bars, on skateboards, off skateboards and jumping off roofs. And some of that when I was a kid too.

A few days ago, I thought of my titanium core when I broke my thimble. And the needle broke through and went into my finger. Thread end first. OWWWWW!

Now I'm looking for an extra strong thimbles. Poor me.

Grizzled Grumpy Cranky Man  

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

Victor Meldrew. Crabby. Grumpy. Awesome.

We love Victor Meldrew. If you've ever seen 'One Foot in the Grave', you know who I'm referring to. He is so very cranky, it is inspiring. It makes you feel better and not like an asshole. Mr. Meldrew is the asshole. Iconic asshole. Very much in the fashion of 'Fawlty Towers'.

Victor and his long suffering wife.

If you've worked with the public in any capacity you know how mind-numbing and disheartening it can be. You may even, on rare occasion, pray for sudden death. If the grim reaper tapped you on the shoulder while dealing with a particularly vivid member of society you just may welcome him/her with open arms.

Then you come home and spend time with Victor. He makes it all ok. He says what you cannot. He is the reflection of your inner asshole hidden from the world. He is one of us, he understands and simply will not take it lying down anymore.

In the privacy of your own home Victor Meldrew and you are one. Assholes. Bask in the knowledge that there are those who understand.

A final word on Victor Meldrew, if you do watch 'Father Ted', there was an episode with him in it. 'Father Ted' is also really funny. See photo.

A scene from the terribly funny 'Father Ted'. Denise will pee her pants when she sees this.
