WALTER CRONKITE IS DEAD.

Okay, another week is upon us!

The heat is tremendous, and I usually am able to tolerate it at home with just a fan, but had to put that AC to work its wonders last night. WHEW! It's summer, so this is only normal right? I watched this movie by Bernardo Bertolucci called The Dreamers, and it had really beautiful cinematography, but the film was quite pornographic at times--I mean, the soundtrack and film clips were cool and all, but some of those hardcore sex scenes were kind of bizarre and out of place for me, but whatever, I enjoyed the film in a sense because it takes place in Paris, and lots of French is spoken so voilà--it has its moments and is worth viewing at least once I suppose, even though it's just a bunch of protesting 18 year-olds with nothing to do all day but hang out, discuss politics/film, and smoke/drink/and f*ck. Hey, I want this life for myself now! LOL! And the original Quarantine movie was made in Spain, and it's called REC and it was pretty good, a bit gory/disturbing/creepy, but very interesting and well-made--seems most people prefer the Spanish original over the mediocre American remake, and I am glad I got to see the one that takes place in Barcelona first.

I have come to realize that there are quite a few people at work I truly appreciate and do enjoy talking to, despite the bitches in authority that I have to answer to. They entertain me, constantly come by my cubicle to visit me, talk to me about all kinds of interesting issues, ask me how I'm doing, and generally seem to enjoy my amazing good looks and neverending sense of humour! LOLOLOL! Okay, now call me an idiot, but does this mean I am an interesting cool guy to talk to/hang out with? I am amazed at how many people gravitate towards my cubicle on a daily basis, and I often wonder why?! I'm a bit of celebrity I suppose? I'm kind of honoured really! And I genuinely do love most of them as my co-workers/people. Wow, I can't believe I'm finding something positive about my job to talk about! LMAO! I guess it helps to have this support group to pass the time and hang out with, because it sure makes life at the office much more tolerable and meaningful to me. Let's face it, with all those hours spent at work, these people basically become family, and it's hard not to form attachments, even though I do have a personal life outside of work mind you. Yeah, work isn't my life, but it is a part of it, and I am grateful I have my other fellow working stiffs to chat it up with while I push paper.

One of my favorite movie scenes of all time. Hysterical:

See how lucky you are! People come by my cubicle only to see if I'm there because they use my computer when I'm not. They're always disappointed to see me and wander off to find a free computer.

I used to have a cubicle to work in to have people come by and say "hello". But it went away along with my JOB!

Somehow, I get the feeling that at some point in your life, you've "translated" like that before, haven't you? Don't lie...

I'd come to your cubicle and say hi too. Well, it'd be a ploy to get more than a chat out of you...but I'd do it, nonetheless.

The Goonies were the best!!! I've seen that movie at least a dozen times - always funny.

You are fascinating, my friend. In fact, you and Linda were the only reason Publications was a good memory. We talked about everything under the sun, and it made the boring work, and intolerable supervisors a little easier to stomach.

It's that twisted sense of humor that makes you so fun. And you also happen to be a kind and good human being. Those qualities attract others to you, which means they obviously have good taste....

i have a feeling that if you and i shared adjacent cubicles, the workday would go by three times faster not only for us, but for everybody else within a ten-cubicle radius--and wouldn't that be a gift to effin' humanity.

[i'm shitfaced and listening to madonna's "spanish eyes" while writing this--that's not wrong, is it?]
