While getting dressed this morning, I thought of about 4 or 5 excuses I could come up as reasons why I wasn't going to make it in for work. I've missed more days than usual here recently between me travelling and doing other personal things, so I couldn't just do the normal "I'm sick" routine. I thought of saying that my power had gone out, since it is so windy out but then I feared that my power really would go out as payback. So I decided to bring my sleepy ass into work this morning. It really should be a mandatory rule, that if you are out of town the entire weekend, Monday is yours to take off for recovery time. If i were president, I'd pass that law, and bribe everyone, so that they would expedite the process.

One thing I neglected to mention about my weekend. There was a point on Saturday night at my brother's house, when the Bad Boys of Comedy came on TV. This show was built in the same mold as the old Def Comedy Jam, except its not nearly as funny, but it is every bit of raunchy. I was talking to someone and listening to this at the same time, it simply was not funny. No one was building and setting up jokes the way good comedians normally do, it was just all about unfunny one liners and playing to the same stereotypes(black vs white people, growing up poor, and dating). My point here is that there were many, many offensive things uttered during some of these routines, and it was tough to listen to given all the discussions that were had last week. Good comedians can play on stereotypes in a way that makes you think, but clearly these high caliber comedians were not on HBO on this particular night. I even looked at my brother one time and mentioned this to him, and he was already thinking it. Sports should have on tv anyway, but that's what happens when the remote is out of my sight.

That is all for now, again i am tired, and incredibly cranky.

um i am SO with you...i scheduled myself a day off today, and tonight as i sit at the computer and type out this longwinded response...i am contemplating calling out tomorrow. I am not ready to go back and be with those people yet. I'm getting surly thinking about it. Not to mention(and yet I do)this weather is killing all my reserves of energy and patience. Oh wait according to the local 10 O'clock news and its supposed to be in the 70s by next week...
