So I stopped being lazy and took some pictures… First up–iSaac my new iPod. …and a Hunts ketchup packet. It came with some food I ordered the other day. By the way, iSaac is showing you movie trailers it’s holding, ’cause he’s good like that.
This is the thing I referred to in an earlier post. It came in a plastic packaged mailed to my house. This thing was sent from the company I work for, for being at the meeting that I really wasn’t. Every “town hall meeting” that occurs, we get stuff. Last time they gave us water bottles, which were actually practical and useful. Before that–another strange weird thingy that’s currently collecting dust and I’ll never use. What it really is, is this beach thing that you lay on. But when I first received it, it looked like a pillow. A rouch pillow made out of straw. I’d take a picture of that, but I don’t remember where I lost it.
After my mother got hers (like 5 minutes later) she told me what it is, and what it’s used for. I thought it was a bag. A strange bag. Well, it’s got pockets. And everything they give us has the company’s name plastered on the side of it. (Obviously I’m showing you the blank side.) I had a co-worker share her view and concern wishing everything didn’t say where she worked. I believe we were talking about the water bottle at the time. That’s when I tried to see if I could scratch off the letters. It didn’t work.
Anyway, this thing is for your butt and/or back. Set this on a rock or disgustingly hard chair, and plat yourself comfortabley there for hours. I don’t need this. So far, the things they gave us aren’t useful to me in the least. Except the water bottle. I have to go on some websites to see how much these things go for. Why? I wanna know how much money they scrimped and scraped to get these for us.
Now this last picture I wasn’t going to include. But I was so proud of my achievements that I had to include it. Tonight I went to my favorite buffet and I always say “I’m gonna bring me a lil baggy to fill me up some food for home!” When I speak out loud, I lose all sense of grammar and how the English language works. Anyway, I snuck a sandwich-sized Ziplock bag hoping to fill it up with the delicious meat they serve. Sadly, I didn’t get to fill it, but I did get something in the bag.
Let me tell you about this buffet… It’s got great food. But it’s technically a Chinese buffet. It looks American because it’s got pizza and mac’n’cheese and other Americana foodies that you can’t order off a take-out menu. The other thing about this buffet, it’s $16 a head for dinner. Lunch or Saturdays are a bit cheaper, but for that amount of money, you want to get your money’s worth. Had I thought of my “slide and drop” method sooner, I would’ve had a bigger score. I rather not describe the slide and drop method, even though there isn’t much to it. But I’m not encouraging stealing either. But this isn’t stealing. I paid. I just eat it later. In any event, I’m proud of my feat. This is what you expect with someone who loves heist movies. I’m going to have a series of buffet jobs, heistly speaking of course. I don’t want to discuss the people who work at those buffets. That’s a story for another time. Again, the picture lies to you. It doesn’t look like much of a score, but there are delicious BBQ pork strips in that bag… for now.
