the most depressing

Did the most depressing break room in the world  just get more or less depressing with the addition of this ancient exercise bike that no one will ever use?  Yep, these are the luxurious quarters that UC Davis employees can expect.  P.S. the median age of these magazines is 4 years.

Hoo, boy, the roster of shows for the next couple of months is not looking too hot.  And the show I'm most stoked about, Babies, lacks a venue currently.  The Wounded Lion show was really raging but I don't like their new album at all.  They're a better live band.  G. Green sounded really good.  It was nice to go to such a raging show on Dec 30th because my new years eve was pretty mellow (besides the appearance by celebrity spokesman Kokopelli)

Man, I forgot about this article.  I wish this would have gotten into the mag.

When I'm in Davis this semester I will come ride that bike! Perhaps while reading an out of date magazine.

not enough comments!

seriously, though, the gripe of the day is the state of the break room in my building. they should provide a noose tying station and a jukebox exclusively stocked with The Best Of Bread

Last night Becky came home & said "did you hear Hugh Grant & Liz Hurley broke up?".

Some of us don't even have break rooms. Thank god. Awkward eating noises from co-workers are the worse. As I'm typing this I'm pedaling on my new under the desk InStride Cycle system. No jokes, 2012 is the year of ripped legs.
jamattack!

your legs are already ripped enough! what will happen if they get more ripped?

Yeah the glamour of working for government.

My gripe of the day is that when my neighbors are having a screaming match, my dogs bark too loud for me to properly listen.

i like employee break rooms so you can check out the weird shit your co-workers eat. when i was a substitute teacher it was the only thing that got me through the day. one of my favorites was a teacher who said she was really happy that she could now buy everything pre washed and cooked at Trader Joe's and didn't even need to cut her own carrots anymore.

i remember trying to nod along like this was some major coop and thought wow... how hard is it to cut a freakin' carrot? it goes without saying that everything she brought to eat was in an individual preprepared package.

no one uses that breakroom. or if they do, they eat in like 3 minutes because it's so depressing. the picture doesn't reveal the fact that it's as cold as a tomb much of the year.

wait, jed, is that your blog?

the word verification is "chaump" I like that word. it's a perfect combination of "chump" and "champ"

Yeah, Lather Blog is me. Live - when I subbed, it seems like I was always treated to thorough discussions of menopause...

what's menopause like? oh wait, it will be more fun for me and Scott to discover it as we go. Ya know, ol' Guisewhite should have continued Kathy through menopause so I would know what to expect.

A quick online search reveals that most Kathy fans agree the strip went downhill after she married Irving.

It went downhill when fans started calling 'Cathy' 'Kathy.'

whatever. she was no 'Old Doc Yak.'
