I finally changed my little side window thingy from the default.

I finally changed my little side window thingy from the default.

Apparently I look incredibly stern when I play the piano. Also, is it just because I’m getting old that I think it’s creepy that my friend posted a picture of me on Instagram?

1. What is yr favorite line from a movie?

The first two I thought of are really more whole scenes than lines:

It’s hard to watch them on here, but they’re from The Tree of Life and No Country for Old Men

2. What is yr favorite pre-1999 movie?

The Princess Bride

3. What is yr favorite post-1999 movie?

Take Shelter

4. Do you have a favorite coffee shop?

Avenue is more of a sandwich shop so I’ll go with the Woods across from my old apartment.

5. What’s yr favorite picture you’ve ever taken?

I really like this one:

6. Is there a piece of art that you’d buy if you had unlimited funds?

If I had unlimited funds I would build my dream library, which would have a museum wing with lots of art for everyone to enjoy.

7. Share a lyric you misheard for years and years!

I still think that in “America the Beautiful” it says “oh beautiful forspacious skies.”

8. Are you more attracted to soft spoken gentle people or like blazing bold people? Both?

I’m pretty soft spoken but I tend to be attracted to higher energy people. People who get really excited about things are my favorite people.

9. If you could experience one moment in history, what would it be?

This one right now, but with me having more money.

10. Favorite article of clothing and why?

I’m really loving this new suit that I got:

It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but it’s grey with mini navy stripes, cotton and linen, and it looks fantastic. I look way better in it that this bozo.

11. What is the most overrated thing on the planet?

College degrees

In my continuing efforts to learn how to take a selfie, I somehow added this postage thing and managed to take this picture of myself that also includes a shot of my monitor displaying the Wiki How article “How to Take Good Selfies.”

Taking a mirror selfie with an ipad is a surprisingly challenging operation. Which is why I am frowning instead of smiling by the time I got one that sort of worked. But it was the only camera I had, and I wanted some documentation of how fantastic I look in a tuxedo.

Well it took forever, but I finally fed my Awkwardness enough experience points to reach level 20 and evolve into Awkwardon. Now instead of a useless abstract feeling of uncomfort, I can deploy a gigantic fire-breathing turtle-dragon. My conversations should be much more interesting from now on.

So my manual labor job isn’t the most intellectual thing in the world, but holy shit am I good at it. Today I was loading at an average rate of 623 packages per hour. The highest I’ve ever seen anyone else get is around 470. My boss said he once got over 500, but he has never seen anyone even approach 600.

Sorry for the bragging, but if I can’t take pride in my work I will probably go insane from it.

oops i just deleted this and don't feel like writing it again
