Live from the Corner pt. Lunch break

Hey, welcome back to the corner. I know I make this place seem like all work and no fun but even we need a break. so today I think I'm going to do the impossible. I'm going to the movies for lunch. that's right I'm going to walk out of here go see "incredible Hulk" and walk back in here 2 hours later like I just went to the bathroom. This has long been my dream, and today I'm going to make it happen. It's friday nobody should even notice.

In other corner news I have a new Pod mate. he's a cool dude and all but the most amazing thing about him is that his wife packs his lunch everyday. Not only does he get lunch but she packs him snacks too. he pulls out bags of sour patch kids and shyt. This is the best reason I've seen to get married. he doesn't even know what she packed, he just grabs his lunchbox and rolls out. he gets here and it's like opening a gift. honestly I'm jealous. I want a wife to pack my lunch and snacks. This will be in my vows if I ever get married. lol "I dave's wife, do promise to pack his lunch and snacks everyday for work" Only thing is sometimes he has some BS for lunch like frozen burritos and stuff. I can't do that, but she can pack me leftovers and snacks (the snacks are the key). Hell I cook, the least she can do is pack leftovers of something I made. I don't think that's too much to ask.

1 last funny story. one of my co-workers decided to wear white slacks and white gators to work. He almost made it the whole day with no one seeing him but towards the end of the day i hear "what the fuck!" I look and around and see what I thought was a miami vice extra walking past my desk. Dude had on a peach colored shirt to complete the look. This kinda thing may fly in florida or some other warm climate but round here that shyt gets you the nickname "Tubbs". Consensus was that he could have gotten away with the white pants but not with the matching white shoes. Some people need to not take fashion advice from Stacy Adams.

Mr. Anti-Social

ok here's something you might not know about me. I'm really anti-social. I really don't like being around a bunch of people. Even if I know everyone in the room, I just kinda chill in the corner and watch. I'm a really quiet person by nature. I have no problem sitting around not saying anything. Whats wrong with silence? I worry about people who always have to be saying something. I'm reminded of this because my god-sister hit me up and asked if I wanted to go on a couples retreat over labor day weekend. First off I'm not a "couple" so there is the first problem, but second I don't want to be in a house with a bunch of other people. They are going to rent out a huge house and stay there for a couple days. I like my privacy. Ihats why I could never have a room mate, I like MY space, I only share with my daughter and the women i'm involved with. I like throwing parties but I want them people to go home too. I think I mentioned before that I turned my guest room into a closet. The only 2 beds in my house are mine and my daughters. Guests sleep on the couch lol. So needless to say a house full of people I don't know for a couple days is not my idea of fun. I'm not looking to make new friends. btw she really just wants to meet new couples to hang out with, she is trying to make that transition from single friends to married friends.

So anyway I was reminded of my anti-socialness again when one of my former co-workers hit me up to go to cirquedusoleil when it comes to town. he's trying to get the old crew together and hang out for a night. If you have never been to a cirquedusoleil you should really go. I took my mom one year and it rocked. it's kinda artsy and nobody speaks english but trust me you'll like it.

I want to go but i'm sitting her debating whether I want to go with this group or just find a date and go on my own time. I'm leaning towards finding a date, I don't want to be bothered with them. Funny thing is that when we worked together we were like a family, and even when I see them out and about I stop and chat for a minute. It's not that I don't like them I just can't see hanging out with them. I think I'd have more fun doing my own thing.

Finals Wrap-Up

Ok.. so the Lakers lost. Here's some random thoughts on the whole thing:

- Honestly I was ok with them losing but why the hell do you have to lose by 40 points? when does pride kick in and you start playing some defense? I mean damn even Rondo had 20 points.

- Was I the only one screaming at the TV for Rondo to take the wide open 20 foot shot? I mean I wasn't even rooting for the Celtics and that was killing me. How are you an NBA point guard and can't hit a wide open jumper?

- Why did every person I know make it a point to call me and ask if i was watching the game? Ya'll mofo's didn't call when the Celtics lost.

- Was does every woman I know hate the Lakers? they try and sell this "we gotta stick with the east coast team" BS but I think they really just don't want to see me happy.

- I can't lie I was kinda happy to see KG smiling, I got so used to him screaming at invisible people that it was nice to see him happy.

- Was I the only one who thought Ray Allen looked real awkward celebrating with the other celtics? Like he was an old guy trying to fit in. He's still Jesus Shuttlesworth to me.

- WTF was up with dumping gatorade on Doc Rivers? This is not the NFL, there is no grass to absorb that shyt. Someone has to clean that up. Now the whole floor is going to be sticky and shyt.

Sports are dead to me until the Fall when my beloved NFL comes back. GO CHARGERS!!!! Hell I might even root for the REDSKINS this year. Just to piss off Eb and the rest of ya'll dallas fans.

I run Slow....

Ms. behaving decided to Tag me. Ya'll know the drill, here are the rules:

# Post the rules before the pictures/descriptions.

# Take a few shots of what's hiding in your fridge..freezer...pantry...cupboards. The more the better.

# You can either simply just include the pictures or even better give some description of what's in there...your favorites...where you shop..how (or how not) it's organized...and/or whatever else you want to include. The more info the better...

# NO tidying up! If you want to turn around things so you can see the labels thats fine...but no re-arranging or cleaning things up. The whole point is to see things the way they actually are...naturally. If there is nothing in your fridge show that... Just keep it real!

# Keep the tag going. Pick 7 other bloggers to join in on the fun and tag them by including their names after your post and by leaving a comment on their blog letting them know they have been tagged. I think it would also be great if you would let the person who tagged you know once you have posted your pictures.

Did I ever mention I hate being tagged? this one is a lil different so i'll participate.



What can i say about this.... i got some milk, some lemonade, some juice boxes for the baby. I bowl of watermelon, you know because I'm black... lol there's some cantaloupe hiding behind the eggs. I got some baked beans in a bowl and next to that is some rice. Some smoked turkey wings on the bottom shelf that were supposed to go with that bag of collard greens on the other side of the shelf. Them greens have been there since memorial day, you think they still good? maybe I should throw them out. Anyway I got some chicken defrosting at the bottom and that random green object in the bottom drawer is fresh broccoli. Oh almost forgot, that container with the red lid are my daughters cherries, she loves cherries and grapes.




Here's the door for the fridge. Most this stuff is really old, alot of condiments and such. Some beer and soda at the bottom. I'm not much of a soda or beer person so those have been sitting there for a minute. Please take note of my beautiful hardwood floors at the bottom of the pic. I love them, they are my second child.



Here's the freezer. Some egg waffles for the baby and some frozen veggies and fruit in the back. I make the best smoothies in the world. i'm not joking, they rock! anyway I got some bubba burgers that didn't make it to the grill on memorial day. I'm not a big beef eater so I was worried about making my own burgers. I made turkey burgers though. On the left there is a bot of popcicles that has got to be 8 months old. and at the bottom some frozen chicken and ground turkey. See that lil plastic freezer bag in the back? that's the last piece for my rockfish that I caught a while back.





And here is the freezer door. Really boring right? some ice cream and a random plastic cup. whats's in the cup you ask? well it's hail from they vicious storm that knocked out my power the other week. It's like golf ball sized. I don't know what i'm keeping it, but I'm sure it will be there for a year or so. Oh wait see those really small things on the right? those are ice packs for my lunch, they are shaped like footballs.


Looking at these pics it looks like I eat really healthy huh? That's only because fast food doesn't store very well.

I refuse to tag anyone else. This insanity has to stop.

Oh yeah Thanks to everyone for the Fathers Day wishes. I got a grand total of 0 gifts but alot of people showed me love so being a daddy isn't so much of a thankless job.
