Busy as One of Those Stupid Insects That Sting You When You Smash its Hive
Yes, I’ve been busy. I’m getting to the point in school where I can see the end approaching fast, well at least for this semester. I finished my Peachtree Accounting class already and I’m working feverishly on getting the Payroll class completed also. I have until May 15th to complete it otherwise I’m fucked, and not in the “I’m wearing AXE body spray” way. Speaking of AXE body spray, who the fuck is really wearing that, and where are the girls that go ape shit over it? I think it’s a clever marketing ploy with no basis in truth. Anyway, back to school, I’m working on my final project for my class and the good news is that I’m not going to take any class during the summer. That’s right, from May 15th until sometime in late August I’ll be free to do other shit that doesn’t require learning. That’ll be grand.
You know, being so busy I haven’t blogged since the 8th. Usually I can blog 15 days apart and there is nothing at all going on except the same old shit. This time in the last 15 days I’ve seen an old radio guy call some basketball players nappy headed hos and lose his job, I saw some kid go crazy and kill 32 people at a college and some astronaut kill someone and himself. Do you see what happens when I leave you people alone for extended periods of time?
The Don Imus thing is weird because I don’t even like the guy, I have flipped through the TV before and found MSNBC and seen him on there and thought, wow, what a crusty old fucker, and flipped through some more channels. The only reason that I knew what he said was because of the media firestorm and public crucifixion that followed it. I surely would have never know what he said if I had to rely solely on his show because I don’t watch or listen to it. Of course back to me because hey, this is my blog, not Imus’ blog. Even if it was, I’d just have to fire his ass too.
What else goes on around here? Not a whole lot, which explains the 15 day lag in blogs.

Happy Easter and All That
Well, any thoughts I had rolling around in my head to write down for an Easter blog have been drowned out by way too much food. I seriously didn’t eat a whole lot, because aside from the ham, there wasn’t too much that appealed to me at the dinner table this year. Of course the rabbit cake did appeal to me so I had a piece of that. Seriously though, it wasn’t made of rabbit, it was just shaped like a rabbit, a very cartoony rabbit now that I think about it. I wonder why we make the bunny our Easter symbol and then we make all of our food to look like it and eat it. Hey, our holiday is going to be represented by this human like rabbit, let’s make chocolate bunnies and cake bunnies and eat them. I guess we do the same thing for Christmas with Santa so I shouldn’t be complaining.
I can’t believe this is already my second Easter that I haven’t been working in retail. That’s right, next Wednesday I will have been at my job for one year already. I started on April 11th last year and that week had Good Friday in it with Easter following.
I’m very close to being done with my classes for this semester and from what I’ve seen of what’s offered over the summer, I might be class free until next September, which will be a nice deserved break if I do say so myself. Since my over-hammed brain cannot think of anything clever to say, I think I’m going to retire for the evening and get some much needed rest.
