I’ve been scurrying around to get my things together for this weekend’s campout when I realized “Oh shit, I’ve still not written today’s blog!” Allow me to rectify this…
Actually I shouldn’t even be home now. If not for some aggravating work circumstances which made it impossible for me to get to see my accountant yesterday I’d already be on the road. Instead, I am hanging ITP in order to see my accountant as I make my way out of town later this morning.

Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
The criticism that hurts the most is the one that echoes my own self-condemnation.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
The Office Is Back And I Am Out Of In The Office
Yeppers, it’s a “Paulie-Free Friday” for all of those with whom I work. Lucky for them, even luckier for me.
I was surprised that no one reminded me that last night was the post-writers-strike relaunch of The Office. Wow did I ever feel uncomfortably watching that episode unfold. It was eerily reminiscent of the dreary turn that the second season of the BBC’s original “The Office” took.
All throughout the episode I kept thinking to myself “This may have been where the writers intended to take us before the strike, but holy crap could they not come back with something a little more upbeat?” I’ve got enough bother and strife in my life, I don’t need to see it played out on tv as well.
Oh The Weather Outside Is Not As Frightful
This weekend’s trip is up to the far northeast corner of Georgia to Black Rock Mountain State Park.
I have been looking forward to this trip for months and dreading the weather forecast since I first looked at it on Monday. Here is what is called for as of this morning.
It’s not as bad as I feared, but not nearly as good as I hoped either.
That May Have Been The Most Amusing Survivor Episode Ever
Oh man did I enjoy last night’s episode of “Are You Smarter Than A Fifth-Grade Survivor?” The only thing that would have made it better for me is if it was Cirie getting booted for using a false Immunity Idol instead of Eliza. Don’t get me wrong, I was more than happy to see how things played out when Eliza opened the wrapping around the “Immunity Idol” only to find a poorly carved stick. Her quick march to the beach in order to confront Jason with “What are you trying to pull?!” (how’s that for gratitude?) made me laugh from the deepest depths of my soul. While it may have seemed obvious to all that Ozzy was the idol-swapping prankster I was somewhat surprised that he admitted to it so quickly. After all it’s not beyond belief to believe CBS would hide a fake Immunity Idol out there, and somewhat implausible, there were others who went out to Exile Island.
Not only did we get to see a little Tomfoolery occur to the players, we also got to see Miss Montana’s (aka Amanda) claws come out on more than one occasion. Normally deceitfully sweet she opened up a can of personal vendetta against Alexis for making some time with the Puppet Master. Then, Amanda admitted to her disgust with Parvati for screwing with her strategy; I can’t blame her for being mad for this, but I found it rather amusing.
With the exception of seeing cocky Jason get his comeuppance something tells me that the remainder of this season is going to be rather ho-hum. What says you?
