2 Years & Some 400 + Posts Later...

Wow. This weekend MSCL celebrates it's 2ND birthday. The terrible two's. In honor of this auspicious occasion I'm NOT going to write about the Yankees and how much they suck right now. Instead, I give you... Sweet Baby James.

There is a young cowboy he lives on the range
His horse and his cattle are his only companions
He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyons
Waiting for summer, his pastures to change

And as the moon rises he sits by his fire
Thinking about women and glasses of beer
And closing his eyes as the doggies retire
He sings out a song which is soft but its clear
As if maybe someone could hear

Goodnight you moonlight ladies
Rockabye sweet baby James
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose
Wont you let me go down in my dreams
And rockabye sweet baby James

Now the first of December was covered with snow
And so was the turnpike from stockbridge to boston
Lord, the Berkshires seemed dream-like on account of that frosting
With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go

There's a song that they sing when they take to the highway
A song that they sing when they take to the sea
A song that they sing of their home in the sky
Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep
But singing works just fine for me

Free Bird It Ain't

Out of all the song lyrics in the world why the hell is this floating around in my head?

Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette je te plumerai
Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette je te plumerai
Je te plumerai la tête
Je te plumerai la tête
Et la tête, et la tête
Alouette, Alouette
Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette je te plumerai

NYC Haiku

Lilacs are in bloom
homeless men urinating
springtime in new york

The sun is shining
girls in their flip flops are out
get out of my way

Man Oh Man

For the past 8 years I've worked in a office dominated by men. Oh sure there was always 1 or 2 women besides me but my office was definitely a man's world. And I liked it. I liked it because I've always thought that I think like a man (but with more common sense). I liked it because they are predictable, easy-going and do not care less what brand of jeans you are wearing.

Now, it's totally the other way around. 90% of the staff is female and man, women are fucking BITCHES. CATTY FUCKING BITCHES. And judging by the ladies room, fucking pigs too.

If I Were In Charge

Things That Would Be Banned From Midtown Manhattan At Rush Hour

Dog walking (especially if the dogs look at me with Cujo-like eyes)
People with those stupid wheelie bags (especially if they're on the phone & not paying attention to where they're going - I mean you asshole on 34th & Madison)
Out-of-town drivers
Out-of-town pedestrians
Those goddamned sidewalk-hogging double-wide strollers

So True, So True

There are many versions of this song out there; my favorite is the Allman Brothers Band (Fillmore East version). Gregg Allman has one of the sexiest voices. Ever. and totally nails this song.

Stormy Monday (T-Bone Walker)

They call it stormy monday
But Tuesday's just as bad.
They call it stormy Monday
But Tuesday's just as bad.
Lord, and Wednesday's worse
And Thursday's all so sad.

The eagle flies on Friday,
Saturday I go out to play.
The eagle flies on Friday,
Saturday I go out to play.
Sunday I go to church,
Gonna kneel down and pray.

Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy on me.
Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy on me.
Though I'm tryin and tryin to find my baby,
Won't someone please send her home to me.

Playing Catch (Up)

Just because 3 out of 5 of the Yankees starting rotation is on the DL is no reason to be worried. Or so I keep telling myself. Fucking Cry Baby Pavano. And what the hell is going on with all the errors? They look like Team Butterfingers out there.

Had a good birthday -- went to Shea with J and froze our rear ends off. But the Mets lost so I was happy! And MM was also at the game so we got to hang out for a couple of innings.

My birthday present to myself this year was I finally got TiVo -- hello 21st century. Maybe now I won't get "The World According to Jim" when I really wanted "Lost." Maybe.

Went to see the niece & nephew yesterday which was really nice until the nephew got into a car accident. Thankfully he was ok, and he didn't kill anyone.

And today? Today I'm enjoying not having to step outside into this wet, wet, wet day. It has been pouring (as in the cats & dogs variety) nonstop for hours. I'm happy to be inside where I'm warm and dry.

Yesterday's News

Yanks win 10-7 on A-Rod's walk-off grand slam

Yesterday was my first game of the season and also Justin's first Yankee game.

I would love to share the pictures that I took but for some reason the pictures are not transfering. While that sucks, the Yanks did not. Well, at the beginning of the game they did but then they made it worth freezing our butts off.

Another Reason Why I Hate My Job

This was a note circulated to the staff today:

Please note that when we go for our company-wide celebratory luncheon on the 19th of April, we will be stopping for a moment to have a group photo taken for publication in TCTPMS newsletter. To create the best possible image, please give a little thought to your attire for that day. After discussion with [redacted] and [redacted], the advice on this seems to run to solid, muted colors; avoid loud prints and overmuch black. No jeans.

Dinner @ Mama Lia's House

It took me 2 buses & 3 trains to get there but it was worth it!

The food and the company were both outstanding.
