The Graveyard shift....
Yeap, it's 5:13 AM and I'm at work. I hate my job.

Went out Saturday night for a bit. I forgot to mention the last time I went to this bar (well I mentioned it, but never went into detail) As I was approaching the club (sober at that point) there were two employees standing outside, a barback and the "bouncer". I didn't recognize them, but the bouncer evidently recognized me from a month or so ago (the night I met Mr. Bean) evidently I was pretty intoxicated that night. As I grew nearer to them the barback said something like "who's THAT?" looking right at me. Then the bouncer said (in a lowish voice that I heard loud and clear) "Oh you don't want to go there he's a mess".


Yikes maybe I was that night, that would explain why I gave my number to Mr. Bean.


How he determined I was a "mess" from entering a bar drunk isn't really fair, especially since I only go out maybe once every couple months.


Not that it mattered, because the barback sat next to me and introduced himself later.

He then proceeded to hit on me full force. I thought that was funny.


I showed my son the little video/slideshow I made for his birthday. Naturally the YouTube user name was right there, so I have retooled the video blog so that it has no direct link here. I've even created a new profile. (You can still find it here on my sidebar listed under favorite posts) I also sat him down and explained that if there is ever anything he wants to talk to me about he can, that we don't want a repeat of what happened last time. He understood and agreed.


Spent Saturday with the kids, party for my son at Moms and then a shopping spree with his Birthday money. When checking out at Best Buy he handed the cashier 3 50's (the bill was like $138) and I said to her (not sure why) that it was his birthday and he was spending some of his birthday money(and he still had two more parties to go). She sighed and said that she no longer gets birthday money (she was probably early 20's) and then I said, oh now that you are older you must get just gifts you end up returning (my attempt at humor). She said no, "I don't get anything, money or gifts". I wasn't sure how to reply to that so I didn't say anything. I kind of made me sad tho.


I have a cold or something, sore throat, light headed, never left my condo today. I didn't take my sons today because of it and am at work right now (3rd shift blech) I hope I feel better by tomorrow, since it is technically my day off.

I think the bouncer was mean. That's one of the thinks I don't like about gays.
Nice meme, I'm thinking about doing it myself this week if you don't mind.
Get well soon! *hugs*

Blogger Rian said...
Damn. Do you know these situations when you've already clicked on "publish", and then you see a typo while it gets submitted? ;-)

Blogger Steve said...
Oooooh, blogging at work... my hero! Hope you're feeling better soon.

Blogger Spider said...
I sure wish you were my Dad...

Great meme!

Blogger Jim said...
Feel better soon! Oh, the dinner sounds good too, I'm glad I'm not the only red pepper addict :)

Blogger patti_cake said...
I just dont' get people who don't celebrate birthdays!
Happy Belated Birthday to your son!

Oh and how qualified was a bouncer in a bar to call someone a "mess"!

Blogger Jimmi said...
Seems the bouncer is the one that is "a Mess". That is shitty he passed judgment on you, I mean if you walked in weekly like that, yes but only one night? We are allowed to have fun every now and then. And look, you end up with the barback in the end. I think that shows he can think for himself. Now what happened with that? Any date? You have to redeem yourself on the Mr. Bean thing…

Blogger NeiLDC said...
I hope that everything will be alraight and i just saw the clip of your son's bday. that was totally amazing, especially in the beach.,.....i remember my dad as well. wish he will be ok wherever he is.

Blogger Doug said...
Uh, yeah, a bouncer saying others are a mess. Sounds like you had a blast that night. ;) Pay no attention to the dork in the bouncer outfit.

I like your ringtones. Didn't Ugly Kid Joe also do a song called "I hate everything about you"?

Blogger Mikey said...
Bouncer= idiot
You are a great Father! and I think you should write a poem

Blogger Marko said...
Mr. bean, lol!

Blogger Jeepy said...
oh come on... I bet you own a Britney cd!
Love the picture of the graveyard, Good thing they didnt have shovels and wear black suits with top hats.

Blogger steve'swhirlyworld said...
Cool...I'm going to use your meme. Thanks.

Blogger madamerouge said...
What does "barback" mean in New England?

Blogger . said...
Hey, thanks for the comments, I was to blind to realize that "Kyle" my trouble maker is back and that was his comment using one of my usuals as a name. As for the graveyard shift...I am oVER that thanks gawd. Take care.

Blogger Ur-spo said...
sorry to hear about your cold; get better soon.

Blogger M- Filer said...
You have a captivating presence in front of the camera. Very charming. Keep it up. Hope you feel better.

Blogger Polt said...
(Waving hand) #2 sounds good to me!

Hey, about the bouncer, at least you made an impression. :) I'd rather make a memory, even a bad one, than just be anonymous. :)

HUGS and stuff...

Blogger Stephen said...
I ran across your meme on my friends blog (steve'swhirlyworld), he borrowed it from you and I borrowed it from him. Hope you don't mind. I read some of you blog, hope you're feeling better soon.

Blogger Kalvin said...
That was some interesting information. I think you should write some poetry about your lovelife. It's cool that you got to show your son the youtube video. You must really be into changing things around. I'm surprised you didn't change the user or set up a different account before hand so you didn't have to change all of the links. Well, at least that might have been an option. Dunno, I guess that we are all different. Hopefully, 3rd shift won't take too much out of you. Take care!
