Life, one sentence at a time

“…I want to live on the side of a square…” July 20, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — emletterman @ 3:01 pm

It’s Wednesday blog time.

As I logged in today, I realized I have 3 e’s in my name.
That is a lot of the letter e.

I’m working on an in depth piece this week about DWI.
I rather enjoy it.
I like the eduction beat.
But damn I’m tired of writing about education.
It’s inane and takes little skill.

Our AE is leaving for two weeks.
That’s a long time.
I’m not sure why she is leaving for that long.
I’m not worried about doing the work.
That I can handle.
I’m worried about the sass.
I can’t take care of things and worry about others disgruntled-ness at the same time.

I need to start running again.
I see FB status posts about other people running.
I have no idea how.
I will melt.

Google+ now has a native iPhone app.
The dark days are over.

I LOVE my white-rubber watch.
It’s hard to type with it on.
Not good when you’re a reporter.

This day is dragging on.

Went to Cashew Inn for lunch today.
Sometimes I miss that place.
Worked hard there, felt good.
It’s hard to believe I left there 4 years ago.

I have been out of college for 4 years.
Top that off with my 10-year high school reunion is in 2 years.
Old person typing.

I’m trying to drink less pop.
I love Dr. Pepper.
It’s not going to be easy.

Pork chops for dinner tonight.
We were supposed to have them last night.
But rather than my Food Network Magazine approved yummy recipie, Adam requested chili dogs.
They were turkey dogs.
But still, damn.

Our intern is gone.
He was weird, but in a way I miss him.
He was funny.
And if nothing else made for good tweets.
He reminded me of a reporter who used to work here, but with less social skills.

I’m still addicted to words with friends.
I have acquired two new opponents since my last post.
@adchicky is doing quite well for herself. :)

Mmm refreshing water.
(I want some coffee.)

I’m tired of being poor.

It’s super HOT.
Will be all week.
I feel sorry for people like my Dad out there working.
I’m an air conditioned baby.
Going from the office to my car is painful.

The hubs and I are stuffing directories for his mom’s office this weekend.
We sit on the couch.
Watch TV.
Label envelopes.
And get paid $75.

I need some birthday plans.
Adam keeps asking me what I want to do.
I don’t really know.
I’m very bad about coming up with my own birthday plans.
I’m pretty sure pastries should be involved however.

We went to KC this weekend and had a blast with friends.
Saw HP7.2 at the AMC Cinema Suites.
A recliner, a waitress, free refills, full dinner menu, alcohol, a hot towel and a mint.
Shut the front door.
I can never see another movie in a theater like a hobo again.

We are going to see Captain America this weekend.
Adam is geeked out already.
He has been geeked out for months.
I bet he will wear his shirt.

KW5 was in KC this weekend as well.
Did we see him.
Because it’s a big city you say?
Because he doesn’t check his FB messages.
KW6 would have.

Millions of episodes of Bones are recording today.
I think I am almost caught up.
Parish the thought.
What will I watch then?

It’s time for some pug lovin’.

I imagine Danny would have looked something like this at the movies.
