Dave!It's only 9:00, but I'm already in bed. I feel that I've earned it seeing as how I woke up at 3:30am this morning to try and get caught up on work. The only problem is that A) I have a blog entry to write, and B) Somebody in the neighborhood is working on a construction project with hammers and power tools. As if that weren't enough, C) Today was an altogether bizarre day, which means my head is not is a place conducive to sleep.

I can break down the bizarre happenings as follows...

  • I found out that somebody whom I always thought liked me most definitely does not, and I have no idea why. Yes, I know, it is inconceivable that there's people out there that don't like me. But it's true, and you'll just have to learn to accept it as I have... painful though that may be.
  • A project I deperately wanted to work on, but didn't get to work on, was just scuttled and nobody got paid because the company filed for bankruptcy. I guess sometimes bad things happen that end up being good things. The crazy part is that I am still upset that I was passed over for it, even though it turned out to be for the best.
  • In response to an entry I wrote about money fucking up the blogosphere, I received an email from some random stranger telling me that I was "taking food out of their kid's mouth." This prompted me to type "I win!" on Twitter, because destroying children's' lives was the whole reason I got into blogging in the first place. Mission accomplished.
  • This morning as I was getting ready to head into the office, I accidentally toppled a box full of crap that was stacked on my desk. While hurriedly shoveling everything back into the box, I spied a CD. When I took a closer look, I saw that it was Milli Vanilli's Girl You Know It's True. I listened to it most of the morning, and have to admit that even though it was all fake, it's still a pretty good album.
  • I found a ten-dollar bill wadded up in the toe of my shoe. I have no idea how long it's been there, but I'm guessing it's been for a very long time. The only reason I noticed it was that my shoe got soaked, and I had to take out the liner so it would dry faster. Thinking I had a potential windfall, I looked in the other shoe but, alas, it was empty.

And now that hammering has finally stopped, so I guess it's time to try and get some sleep. Tomorrow is another very long day.

  1. “Girl You Know It’s True” was a great album. Someone did a good job on it. It just helps prove that video in fact did kill the radio star.

    • Dave2 says:

      What’s odd is that had this album come out today, I don’t think the backlash would have been nearly as severe. Lip-syncing and electronic manipulation is so commonplace now that it just doesn’t get the same reaction.

  2. Sizzle says:

    But HOW did the ten dollar bill get IN the shoe? I am so intrigued.

    • Dave2 says:

      Honestly? My guess is that when I bought the shoes, I threw my change into the box and the $10 somehow ended up inside my left shoe. I didn’t notice it when I put the shoes on for the first time, and it’s been there ever since.

      Either that or I got drunk one night and shoved my spare cash into my shoe when I went to bed so I wouldn’t lose it. Then didn’t get it all when I put it on the next morning.

      The possibilities are endless!

  3. DutchBitch says:

    OK so who gave me away? I did a pretty good job pretending I like you, though, didn’t I?

  4. Hooray for unexpected cash!! Wonder why you hid it there in the first place??

  5. ADW says:

    I have like 200 pairs of shoes. Disgusting and capitalist of me, but I am culling out the shoe herd over the next few months to streamline my life. Just think if I found 10.00 in half of them.

    But then the bad angel would just make me bet it on weird things like pig racing and combine tractor derbies.

    Still…. it’s a nice dream.

    Oh and by the way, my much older cousin punched me in the stomach when I told him I thought Milli Vanili sucked. After the news came out I just pointed and laughed. His reaction was all I needed.

  6. delmer says:

    Until I cleaned my glasses, I was wondering how you pointing out Monkey fucking up the blogosphere was taking food out of a child’s mouth.

    I fully expect Monkey to fuck things up… I was just surprised he had such a far reach.

  7. It is only now occurring to me, vis a vis the current brouhaha, that for a decent number of bloggers, it IS about the money. After reading your comment on Clay’s post yesterday, I read your old post. It just never occurred to me that for some of the bloggers I read and love, it really is all about pageviews and bounce rates. My innocence is shattered.

    I was in bed a 9:00 too. But I was also in bed at 2:00 pm. I had the flu. And I didn’t find any money in any of my shoes.

  8. Finn says:

    I happen to know for a fact that you only take food out of fat kids’ mouths. It’s a public service, and we’re lucky to have you to take care of such things for us. Parents are very busy playing on their smart phones these days and simply don’t have the time watch everything that Junior puts in his big mouth.

    I hate getting passed over for work. No matter how hard I try, I always take it personally. I’m glad it worked out for the best for you though.

  9. RW says:

    You can make money doing this???

  10. A. Lewis says:

    The $10 was from me….I put it there after we shagged. You know, for services provided….I thought it was the only proper thing to do.

  11. A. Lewis says:

    PS: I probably should mention that you were worth more than the $10. But it’s all I had at the time.

  12. Sybil Law says:

    You should take that $10 and go buy yourself a 6 pack of good beer. You’ve earned it!
    Seriously – who doesn’t like you? They must have some sort of defect. I mean that in all seriousness!

  13. Firstly, why can’t I ever find money in shoes eh? And secondly, good lord, that Milli Vanilli album takes me back. Holy crap, was that really 21 years ago?

  14. I say “Girl you know it’s true” to Daren all the time…so this made me giggle.

    Also, what kind of asshat thinks you’re taking food from her kid’s mouths over a comment on a blog? And she is raising children. Wow. I’m still baffled by the sheer stupidity of the entire thing, really. I swear March Break away from the net (remember, you cried yourself to sleep every night that I was gone) proved that the internet peoples are crazy. Also some of them need to shut it down and go live life.

    Also also, who doesn’t like you? Besides me, of course, Dearest Nemesis.

  15. It was me. I hate your guts. Sorry. I’m just using you for Halloween Dots. 😉

  16. Tug says:

    Am I the only person in the world that never finds cash hidden? dammit.

    Quit eating kids, you’re a vegetarian. Oh wait. My bad…..

  17. I’m sorry you found out that I don’t really like you.

    Apologies for the ruse.


  18. martymankins says:

    The actual music on that Milli Vanilli album wasn’t fake at all. Just the ruse of who was performing it live and the two on the front cover actually performing.
