Sometimes I Can't Believe What A Snob I Am

  • What I'm Watching/Listening To/Reading:
    • I really liked this letter that was printed on The Daily Dish.
    • I had to drive up to Baltimore this afternoon. Why 105.7 airs Ed Norris instead of Mike O'Meara, I can't guess.
  • Random Thoughts/Links:
    • At the bar to which I went tonight, every female looked like Jessica Sierra. If you know what I mean by that, you know what I'm saying.
    • I wrote so much crap last night that I forgot a few things.
    • Had BBQ chicken last night using Gates BBQ sauce. Gates is a famous restaurant in Kansas City and I visited it when I was in town to see a Royals game a few years ago. I'm not prepared to say without a doubt that their sauce is the best-tasting thing in the world, but it is definitely in the conversation.
    • This article made me laugh out loud. I thought of some other jokes to go with this, but I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I wrote them down for perpetuity.
  • Daily Rant:
    • I went back for a party with some ex-coworkers, people I hadn't seen in over three years. I love my job now for a number of reasons and absolutely hated working in the old place for the last few years I was there. Yes, years of misery. They eventually laid me off and it kicked my ass into finding out what I really wanted to do. It's the best thing that ever happened to me professionally; it's why I truly believe that one door closing is a great opportunity to find a new, open one. The people at the party talked about how things are so much worse than they were when I was there. I can't for the life of me imagine why people would put up with that kind of crap for so long. I guess Isaac Newton would say that inertia is just a really powerful force. Being back in Baltimore and talking to random people made me realize that among other things, I take for granted what an intellectual atmosphere I work in now compared to then. Upon hearing my musing on that, my wife simply responded with, "Well, you work with a lot more Jews now." Touche.

Umm, your "Touche." makes it sound like either your wife wasn't joking, you didn't think it was a joke or both. If that's the case, I might have used a different word than "snob" in the title of the post.

It was a joke. Jews are stereotypically more intellectual, so we were joking about that. She was joking and I was joking with my touche. A little edgy, I know. Actually Washingtonians are stereotypically more intellectual than people from Baltimore, so we could have gone that route too.

I imagine a lot of the girls at the bar were conversely thinking that all the guys looked like the less attractive contestants on Beauty and the Geek. If you know what I'm saying...
