So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Warehouse quotes o' the day, chronicling the undying hatred of She Who Must Not be Named and The Other Anonymous Co-worker:

"I like to hang my walkie-talkie on there- just in case Satan calls."


"Did she have to radio me to tell me that? 'I'm going to put an order in the box in a second.' That's like saying, 'Hi Mark, I'm going to go to the bathroom sometime today.'"

"She's pretty good around your dad and Rusty, but when they're not here, when Scott's not here, she gets crazy... fire shoots out of her eyes- her head spins around, it's scary."


And the rebuttal:

"This is an easy system. Any moron could use this system- well, not every moron... there's a moron out in the warehouse who is too stupid to understand it..."
< followed by an "unrelated" story about Mark...>

Other quotes:

--I don't know if [Scott's] leg's really broken. I'm going to have to see the cast.
--But didn't you just see that x-ray!
--... that could be anyone's x-ray... I'll have to see the cast... make sure it doesn't have a big zipper on the side...

Smitty (very suspiciously) and Mark

"Sometimes it gets like this- we just get Nobles up the butt!"

-She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named

And the classic: "I ain't never been surfing. You ain't never seen a brother surfing. Brothers don't surf."
-Mark


I saw Troy tonight and came out with the same opinion I had coming in- I'm in love with Hector... hooray for Troy! Odysseus can come and live in Troy, Helen and Paris can be cast from the walls along with Nestor or whoevertf, Achilles can go home and be indignant and sleep with Patroclus, and King Hector can rule the land for all time.
Favorite part: Prince Hector being awesome
Most heroic part: How long I lasted before having to go to the bathroom... call me Paris, but I ducked out about halfway through

mood: good
listening to: the beastie boys just aren't any good, I've tried to like them for long enough
watching: TROY

Touring the facility and picking up slack
Thursday. 5.20.04 8:13 pm

Sooo... first day o' work! Oh how I enjoy reorganizing bins of tires.

Here are some quotes:

"If you're still driving that slow by next week I'm going to stop calling you Laura and start calling you Miss Daisy"

-Mark
and

"I wouldn't go over there if you paid me to go to France."

-da Bossman Walker

Well, I spent most of the day humming to myself and hoping that I had appendicitis, but since that's pretty much what I did all of last summer, it was not particularly novel. I met a UPS guy named Roly ("as in Roly Poly", says he) and Gary gave me a friendly warning about my co-worker,
"Man, oh man, is she going to be a total bitch this week."

I was thinking about tires today... funny coincidence, isn't it, seeing as I was stacking them for 9 hrs in a row...
After you work in a warehouse for a while, you get to know your tires and pigment numbers like they are your old friends. I bet I could even wager a guess as to what part number the tires on your car are, as long as they are a part we carry. So I wonder if suddenly someone said, "Oh no! the 86142s fell on Scott!" if I would then be able to say, "Holy crap! those are some of the heaviest tires we have for their size! They are in bin 010100700!"
I bet my knowledge could save lives.

That would be the kind of thing that would happen to Scott. Poor guy never catches a break. Except for when he's walking through downtown Denver, trips on a parking lot chain, falls into a gutter, and breaks both bones in his lower leg so that his foot is facing the wrong way followed by no one responding to his cries for help, followed by finally getting out his cell phone and dialing 911 himself. Today we get to see if he gets surgery!

First blog (yey for me!)

Wow, Ranor was right, this Nutang is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Even better than George Bush, ya might say. Maybe George Bush and sliced bread have a lot in common... who knows.

Here's something sweet though- I went to Zion National Park and we hiked to the Emerald Pools where there were these tiny frogs that sounded like really loud bleating sheep. mBaAa! mmmbaAAaaA! They were in a pool at the foot of a gigantic U-shaped sheer vertical cliff that surrounded us on three sides. The waterfall above turned into vapor about five feet off the rock and so didn't really make it to the bottom. There were these random deer hanging out there eating grass, and it seemed like one of those enchanted forest gigs that are in B-movies and you're like, "yeah, like that would ever happen in real life." Well, apparently the cure for some skepticism is just to get out a little more. We were thinking it would be good to put that pond in a fantasy novel, and the character would finally reach the top of the hike and there would be this little random magical pond and then just as something magic/suspenseful was about to happen, those noisy-ass frogs would go eerily silent.
Think about it.

Oh yeah, and Callisto arrived alive. :D


Gotta love Juanes. Oh faint.


watching: the gilmore girls are whores!
