Theater Of The Absurd

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

We're back together. Our relationship has had its bumps but are now smoothed out. ;)

Cherish the bumps. They sometimes strenghten the relationship and can remind us how important the other is to us.
But don't deliberately create more...though they can at times make life/the relationship interesting.

Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

The last couple of days have been exhausting. I am being pushed to my physical limit.

This construction job is only temporary and ends on Saturday. I have another job interview tomorrow for a full-time salesman position in retail so that I have work all year long after this construction one.

Tuesday I spent all morning unloading semi trucks of construction equipment and spent most of the day driving around with the site manager at lumber yards procuring supplies.

Yesterday I spent most of the day cutting and installing insulation. I got thirty two rooms done at this hotel construction site.

I still have two more floors of this hotel that I still got to do. Second floor has thirty one rooms and the first floor has twenty one.

It's looking like thirty one floors today and twenty one rooms tomorrow.

I'm working about ten hours a day and making a hundred dollars a day where as exhausted that I am can't complain too much. I am looking forward to the end of this job however.

So, are you going to waste your day today or are you going to spend it wisely?

Remember to go outside and make an angel in the snow. Then just lie there for a few minutes enjoying the experience.

I'm going to vegetate on the internet and then catch up on some much needed sleep tonight. :wink:

Snow angels? I get enough of that slipping on ice walking everywhere. :lol:

What vegetable would you compare the internet to? The internet must be pretty tasteless - at least at times it is.
That would make you a figure skater, not a snow angel.

Look up the word and its meaning. Hint: Has nothing to do with vegetables.

Yes, a figure skater.

Ah, I thought you were being serious there for a moment.

The internet as grazing pastures? Nah, that's society all around us. The internet is a place where the cattle or sheep go to escape in not being reminded of just how much of livestock they really are. It's also a place where the wolves go to cut back as well. 8)
