    Finished all our work for the rest of the day. Time to get some homework done. Turned off the annoying music that always plays here so I can finally concentrate.

    Coworker just came back in from smoking his electronic cigarettes and now he has the TV on.

    coworkers, there is no reason for you to ever address each other in a sing-song-y voice.  i am not interested in hearing any of you assholes say, "See you sooooon!" or "Have a gooood niiiiiight!"

    Why is he going outside to smoke an e cig? Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of the whole thing?

    I was out of the office the past two days. My mom had surgery and my dad had to travel for work so I hung out there and helped out since she can't move much or lift anything.

    In the office this morning grabbing coffee and a co-worker goes "I see you were out a couple days this week. Must be nice!" Like I'm some fucking slacker and she is here saving the world. I responded "I'm not sure what the fuck that even means" and watched her scurry away in terror.

    Yeah to be safe you really want to use extremely vague language to avoid presuming time away was for relaxation purposes.

    "I hope your period of time away was beneficial or useful to you."


    Hope your mom is doing OK Nick.

    Getting creepy text messages from an email address stevearrambide@msn.com. Started a couple weeks ago with:

    Hi mom it's Matthew.

    I responded Wrong #

    This past weekend he writes: I just won Ortiz MVP Boost copy award. I just own Rookie Award in Topps.

    I responded Wrong # but then he writes What is your name?

    Then last night this fucker tried to FaceTime with me. Kind of want to tell him to fuck off but also don't want to get chopped into tiny pieces.

    People who feel the need to start every sentence with "So...", use the work "literally" wrong, and use air quotes around shit that does not need to be quoted.

    I work with all of these versions of annoying.

    Along similar lines, if my sister uses 'pretentious' to mean 'vaguely artsy thing I disapprove of' one more time I'm putting her up for adoption.

    My new boss does the post-millennial end every sentence with "right?" thing, except she's a middle-aged redneck so it sounds even more ridiculous. She also says "okay" like "uhl-kaaay," slightly less cornball than Mr. Mackey from South Park.

    I've been working tirelessly trying to get all my finals done for the past 72 hours. I spent the day reading and writing in my friend's dorm so that I could avoid distractions in my own place. I didn't finish until 4am and it was pouring rain so I slept on his couch for the night. He has four random roommates and when I woke up this ugly fuck looked at me and told me that "if I was going to move in I needed to start paying rent, just saying." I chuckled but this motherfucker was actually being serious. He is like 5'5", uglier than sin, and spends his whole life playing Minecraft. I'm not an angry person but I am stressed out and it upset me so much.

    Then one of his other roommates came home and bitched out me and my friend because we were partying all night. He said if we did it again tonight he would curse us out and start making loud noises. I was there for 12 hours yesterday and spent the entire time sitting at a table reading Badiou and listening to Mingus and only ever moved to take smoke breaks. We hardly made any sound and I was as courteous as I could possibly be given that everyone is working on finals and I figure we collectively empathize with how stressful that can be.

    But fuck em dude. They crossed the line. Their passive aggressive bullshit just won't stand, man! I wanna fight these dudes. I would neutralize them.

    I know this is overreaction and it doesn't matter and I sound like a toddler. But this has triggered the dormant reactionary impulse in me and I just want to start laying down the rule of law on these fuckers skulls.

    A guy just like you was increasingly overstaying his welcome in a house I shared with three other people. One day I gave him a ride back to his dorm and politely but firmly told him he didn't live with us.

    Even if those guys are being unreasonable dicks, you should probably leave. You don't live there. It's between your friend and his roommates if he doesn't like how they're treating you.

    Especially galling when they then have to load their groceries or whatever into the trunk or hatchback.
    And guess how considerate they are with the shopping carts.

    Meh, this is going to sound really stupid but whatever.

    Yesterday I went to a performance of Beckett's Happy Days that the DePaul Humanities Center sponsored. It was done by three people from Chicago's Y Theater and it was a pretty tiny room of maybe thirty audience members. One actress (who played Winnie) and two dudes standing at a table experimenting with electro-acoustical phenomena, which basically involved a lot of fuzz and random snippets of jazz standards.

    I went with two people, who sat on either side of me, and they both fell asleep during the performance. Sort of understandable but also pretty fucking annoying. Especially since afterwords they both criticized the performance with obnoxious bullshit platitudes.

    I'm always very offended by this kind of thing even though I probably shouldn't be.
