Ok, so the other night I hear sirens outside my apartment building. Going out to the lobby to see, I met a woman coming in. She starts talking about what was going on outside (a fire in another building FWIW). Anyhow, intros and a little small talk were made, and as she went to her apt she says ‘knock on my door whenever’ or something to that effect.
Now, I’m the kind of guy who thinks “An attractive woman is interested in me, what’s wrong with her?” So I mulled and mulled for a few minutes and decided, what the heck. So I go to her door and knocked, but no answer. So I’m thinking maybe I got the number wrong. Rather than knock on every other door, I decided to write a note to her and tape it to the front door of the lobby. Here’s what I wrote:
“Hey xxxx, sorry if this is a little weird, I thought you said your apt. was ***. I knocked on the door but no one answered. Maybe I misheard you? Anyhow, I thought maybe we could go out sometime, get to know each other. Just slip this under #*** and let me know. Hope to see you again, xxxx”
The next morning, under my door was her reply:
“Hi Sexy It’s not weird. I’d love to see you again too… but for $100 an hour. Sorry but I’m worth it. Hope to see you soon. Slip this under my door XO”

|Thank you LJ
Can someone at LJ let me know when someone adds me as a friend so I can do so in kind and not find out accidentally so they don't think I'm sorry ignoring them?
Sorry Sapphire, for not reciprocating earlier. I just found out today you friended me when I went to friend you and said, "Oh gee look, she already did, I wonder when that happened?"
|Hello, I'm nobody.
I wish just once someone would tell me my feelings matter instead of making me feel like everyone has carte blanche to treat me however they like and never have to answer for it.

|My life's a joke, how's yours?
Nothing like having people you think care about you or are your friends totally ignore you. That was my week and weekend in a nutshell.

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a memory of me. It can be anything you want, either good or bad. When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people remember about you.

|I don't care what you believe in, just believe in it- Shepherd Book, "Serenity"
Some of you know I work for a local supermarket co., and we are union. This Sunday our contract comes up for renewal, and it doesn't look good. The company wants to take over our health insurance, take away seniority for Sunday so they can just put the inexpensive employees on, take away Sunday being time and a half, take away our pensions, take away some of the minor holidays, etc.
Because the non-union markets don't have all the extra benefits we do, they can afford to make their prices lower. My company wants to put themselves on that level, cut down on the overhead to raise their profit margin. If we reject the contract, then we vote to strike.
Now, logic says that the company won't let it get that far. My company is the largest food retailer in New England. If we go on strike, it will be front page news all over the area. We also may make national news, especially what happened with Kroger's a few years ago. There are simply not enough non-union workers to make the stores run. That, and almost all the drivers who make deliveries are teamsters, so they won't cross the picket line.
So what does this have to do with Serenity?
I know most of you have seen the movie. (If you haven't, watch it, damn fine movie.)
Consider the Operative. He believes in a world so much, he's willing to do anything, including murder of innocents, to achieve it. Now the irony is, his actions deem he not be part of that world. And he harbors no illusions about it. He believes in it so much, that he's willing to sacrifice his place in it to make it happen.
"So here is us, on the raggedy edge." We, the union workers, wanting a fair contract so we can make a decent living, are willing to sacrifice that living to make it happen. So, I ask this of you:
What do you believe in?
What are you willing to do to make it happen?
What are you willing to sacrifice for it?

|Life has lost all meaning.
WB has taken Joss Whedon off the Wonder Woman movie as writer and director. Joss Whedon. He who gave us Buffy and Firefly. This sucks.

|So I like 'em green, you have a problem with that?
Went to go see Wicked last night. Wonderful show, but that's not the point. I was quite taken with the lead, Victoria matlock, green makeup and all. Her bio has a site listed, www.victoriamatlock.com , so I checked it out. And I thought huh, she looks better with the makeup on.
