Sorry people, I gotta vent. The internet freaked out yesterday when an article was posted about the guy that voiced Arnold from “Hey Arnold”, surfaced. It shows how hot he became. Let me tell you, shiz like this makes me even more happy I’m NOT single! I honestly despise this hipster-lumberjack bullshit that has murdered men’s fashion. So needless to say, that’s a hard pass on “guy that voiced Arnold”.
Here is a PSA to men out there! Fashion beards don’t look good on many men, so you probably shouldn’t bother. I mean, if you had one prior to this hipster takeover, keep it. Please also shave off your molester-mustache while you’re at it, it’s f’ing creepy. Even if you had a molester-mustache prior to it being cool, it’s still creepy. You should also only wear glasses if you actually NEED them. Please stop wearing super skinny jeans, it makes you look like you clipped off your testies in the name of fashion. It ain’t cute. BUT, I guess cutting off your circulation beats the other end of the spectrum. Even worse when men wear pants down to their knees. I should also mention, I live next to hipsterville, USA, so my brain is overloaded with the different guys dressed EXACTLY the same. Thanks in advance for your cooperation. Together we can over throw this mind-numbing hipster regime! Side note, you can ignore this if you’re an actual lumberjack or man of the wilderness.
PS. In other news, they are releasing another Hey Arnold! movie and I’m really excited!
I’m a bit of a phone-o-phobe. I really dislike talking on the phone. I know its unavoidable like getting stuck behind an old lady at the grocery store who can’t decide between various brands of prunes. But I really start to get annoyed if I have to be on the phone more than 5 minutes. With that in mind, I’ve been dodging a phone call for a week because I don’t want to be held hostage to a one-sided phone conversation that will take hours. My guilt has finally reached the level where I must succumb to the call-back. It makes me feel like an asshole really, because you shouldn’t dread calling your friend.
Let me explain, I have a long-distance friend who doesn’t like texting/emailing/social media-ing. But when I call her, I can’t get a word in edgewise. It makes me feel awful, especially now that she has a health issue. So I need to check-in to make sure she is doing fine. But, I also can’t bring myself to be held up on the phone for hours. I try to schedule these calls around something productive. I think I will be calling around my mandatory “Code of Conduct” online seminar. But it’s difficult to cut the conversation short [or even a reasonable length], when there is never a break in her conversation for me to sign off. I’ve tried calling at various times of the day, hoping this will lead to a shortened conversation. But nothing has worked so far. Basically my tactic, make sure I’m working in tandem on something else. This way, my busybody feels like it can accomplish something while being held captive to a phone.
I had a really fun weekend! I’ve been looking forward to our fancy steak dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. I actually like their steaks more than Capital Grille. Our next fancy steak dinner location will probably be Abe & Louie’s. We’ll likely save that for Valentine’s Day or something. Neither of us have tried Abe & Louie’s before, hopefully they won’t disappoint. I really love the location of Ruth’s Chris though. They took over the old city hall building, so each board room/office is a separate dining area, this time we were in a much larger dining room. I liked the larger room more, I felt like it was too quiet in the smaller room we had before.
ANYWAY, Andy and I both ordered the New York Strip Steak. I got a salad and Andy got creamed spinach. Both dishes were excellent! I finished about 80% of my steak, but I just couldn’t finish the rest. Instead of taking it home, Andy scarfed down the remainder. I think next time I’ll stick with the filet, it’s a little smaller.
After dinner, we went out for more drinks at the King St. Tavern. There weren’t many people there (thankfully), so we had a chill evening. All in all, a great night. OH YEAH, I totally woke up at 5AM the following morning pouring sweat. That’s not my norm, unless it’s summer and I forgot to leave the A/C on. The only logical conclusion, I GOT THE MEAT SWEATS!

I met up with Andy and friends at Whiskey‘s last night. I was supposed to take the express bus but it never showed up [like I predicted]. Instead of seeking an alternate route, I just said fuck it and got an Uber. I was starving, and just wanted to get there already!
I ended up getting a delicious smokehouse salad. It had avocado, bacon, steak, and blue cheese. I loved it!
I met a guy named Gray there, who said that was his real name. He also said he is from Nantucket, and lives and works right next to the bar. I couldn’t tell if he was messing with us or not. He said he was 25, but barely looked 21. Not saying that’s BS, because I don’t really look my age either. But then when we mentioned we were heading to Brighton later, he said he lived there. So, wait, you live in Copley square, AND Brighton? Is one your vacation home?! Hmmm…I’m beginning to think your name isn’t really Gray, and you’re still in college there, bro!
As promised from my last post, here is a photo dump from the party I crashed for Andy’s work. The party was almost two weeks ago…oops! It was a lot of fun. The food was excellent and it was open bar. So no complaints from me!
It was kinda funny to be allowed to eat and drink in the middle of a library. It was funny not to whisper! We also danced too. There was even an ice cream bar, how awesome is that?! After the party, we went to a couple of bars in the area, many were filled with annoying college kids. It wasn’t my idea to go to these places, so don’t you worry! I’m not suddenly into the douchey college kids bar scene. I’m too old for that shiz!
They did a great job with the party. I was glad I finally got to attend one of Andy’s work parties. I wasn’t able to go to the last few. Now I will be sure to clear my schedule, to make an effort to go.
When I thought I was done with parties for a while, I went to a really fantastic party last night. It was a work event at the JFK Library, and it was cocktail attire. I forgot to take a picture of my outfit, but you’ll just take my word that was cute. Anyway. it was open bar and also a sit down dinner. They kept the exhibit open for us to walk through prior to the cocktail hour, and I took advantage. I kinda rushed through the exhibit though because I wanted a drink, haha. This was my second time at the JFK Library, and I’d like to go back to go through the exhibits a bit more thoroughly. But aside from that, it was a great time!
Our company prez gave a great speech and then there was a fashion show. Part of the fashion show had dancers, a gymnast, and tap dancer. It was really cool! The food was also fantastic and the tables were very fancy!
It was a company-wide meeting so people from other countries were flown in. I hate to say it, but I saw a lot of people I didn’t know! But it was good to meet new people. Oh yeah, I forgot to post about the cocktail party I went to last weekend for Andy’s work. I’ll try to get around to that this week. Hope everyone had a good weekend!
I feel like I’ve been running around like a headless chicken going to parties basically every weekend. I was very much looking forward to this weekend. Andy and I were planning on laying low. But now I have to go to a mandatory cocktail party. I can’t even really ENJOY said cocktail party because I have to drive there, and drive myself back home. I also have to take my smelly dog to the groomer, and go to the human salon to get my hair color touched up.
To make matters worse, the party is on the other side of the city, so it’s going to take me forever to get there. Not that it’s a long ride mileage wise, but it’s convoluted. Also, also, it would take me almost an hour and a half to get there if I took the train. Not sure if that time also includes the walking part, as the venue isn’t really close to the station. FUN TIMES.
