It’s Complicated

Current Mood: Content

All you do makes me feel alive
Like I’m flying through
Starry skies, multiplied over and over again, a million times
You you you yeah yeah yeah
This is turning into the best day that I’ve had

Someone stole my Mountain Dew from the refrigerator at work. It was in my lunch bag (which happens to be a torn plastic Devil-Mart sack) but still, that doesn’t grant the rights to my Mountain Dew to anyone who comes along. For the love of Pete, the cans of Mt. Dew in the vending machine only cost a quarter . . . is it necessary to steal MINE? And the person who stole it is obviously a junk food addict – because they ONLY stole the Mountain Dew. They did not take any yogurt or cheese. Who does this??? To make matters worse, I couldn’t even purchase a new Mountain Dew because the vending machine was SOLD OUT! And it actually was sold out; unlike the vending machine in the main break room that says it’s sold out, when you can clearly see that all 3 rows of Mountain Dew are still full. Why do the Dew gods hate me so???

I want to walk around and find the culprit. Once discovered, they would get a beat down! Rawr!

*deep breathing exercises*

Alright, I am calm now. The anger over the stolen can of soda has dissipated. I am thinking happy thoughts . . . very happy thoughts! Actually, these thoughts are a little too happy for the office. . . I need to tone them down a bit.

So, the Slipknot concert was in town two nights ago. I am not a big Slipknot fan. In fact, I am not even a small Slipknot fan. To be perfectly honest, they scare me – A LOT! What I did not realize is that there are Slipknot fans everywhere, and they don’t all wear scary masks and eat human flesh – though I am sure a large portion of them do. Yesterday, 3 different people mentioned being at the show on Sunday night. It is rather ironic that the show was on the Sabbath. I wonder if that was planned. No matter. The fact is that the show was crazy – someone died (which I believe happens at every Slipknot concert) and everyone I know who went was tired and a little hard of hearing yesterday, even the Concession Stand worker at the movie theatre. I am not sure why the Concession stand worker volunteered that he was at Slipknot he night before – but he was darn proud of the fact.

‘Valkyrie’ is the movie we went to see. (We, as in my date and I, not the concession stand worker and I). In true dorky form, I had already watched the Valkyrie documentary this past weekend on the History Channel, so I knew the whole story in advance. **Spoiler Alert – they don’t kill Hitler in the July 20, 1944 assassination attempt. ** Overall, the movie was good. The story, however, is a GREAT one, and I am excited to read a book on the topic.

I definitely need more sleep.

PERSONAL NOTE TO THE MOUNTAIN DEW THIEF: I will find you. Be afraid, be very afraid.

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: It is far less complicated than the status leads on. Thank you for that.
