I'm not a swim suit model, damn it! [13 Oct 2006|09:52pm]
Last night I had to go to a dinner/banquet type deal that the Sealy mattress company was putting on for my company. Free drinks, free food, free entertainment, etc, etc. They were schmoozing us. Anywhere there's free food and drinks--I'm there. Luckily, I showed up late and missed the whole presentation, but I got there just in time to have dinner. Plus, its a good opportunity to talk to other people in the region that I haven't seen in a while and meet new ones.

After the meal, the boring people left and the rest of us stayed to drink and be merry. Honestly, though, I didn't drink much: not only did I have a 25 min. drive home down the freeway waiting for me, but I had to work the next day, too. So I'm hanging out at a pool table with my good friend and co-worker, and a guy walks up, introduces himself and started with the small talk. After a bit, he leans in and asks "So, I heard you were a Tampa Bay Buckaneer cheerleader, and you were swim suit model. So what was that like?"

Naturally I'm thinkin' to myself "WTF is he talking about?" My girlfriend winks at me and decides to go a long with this. She starts regaling him about her days as a freakin' pro football cheerleader and I'm stuffin' chips and salsa in my mouth trying to muffle my responses.

And then the next guy.

And the next.

Apparently, someone told them about our "past lives" and every knucklehead in the region is trying to by us drinks because of "what they heard."

Okay, Julie is thinking this shit is hilarious and I'm worrying about how this is going to affect my chances at getting a promotion. Meanwhile, my boss is getting wasted. I told him to layoff the shots because he had to work the next day. He said it'd be fine. Of course when I came in to work this morning, he looked like shit. ^^ Aahhh... I love it.

At any rate, we still haven't figured out who the culprit is. But I think I know. Of course he laughed and denied it.

Sushi [09 Jan 2006|01:15pm]
I made this header image for the LJ layout of my good friend, crystalespers recently. She wanted something cute, pink and Japanese-y. It was a lot of fun to make, and she really likes it, so I'm pleased. As it turns out, she's never had sushi before. (=_=;)

It's Official... [04 Jan 2006|07:27pm]
You Have a Melancholic Temperament

Introspective and reflective, you think about everything and anything.
You are a soft-hearted daydreamer. You long for your ideal life.
You love silence and solitude. Everyday life is usually too chaotic for you.

Given enough time alone, it's easy for you to find inner peace.
You tend to be spiritual, having found your own meaning of life.
Wise and patient, you can help people through difficult times.

At your worst, you brood and sulk. Your negative thoughts can trap you.
You are reserved and withdrawn. This makes it hard to connect to others.
You tend to over think small things, making decisions difficult.

Chuck E. Cheese's: Casino for Kids? [02 Jan 2006|03:53pm]
I know that Chuck E. Cheese's is the place "Where a Kid can be a Kid!" but every time I see a commercial for this place, I think "kid's casino".

When I was little, Chuck E. Cheese wore a red derby, a vest and a bow tie. Now he wears a bike helmet, knee and shoulder pads, and rides around on a skateboard to appeal to the modern market. When you went to Chuck E. Cheese's back in the day, you played Whack-A-Mole, arcade games, jumped around in a pit of plastic balls, and ate pizza while watching giant, animatronic animals in clothes, sing songs and play jug band music. Fun times. -__-

Now kids gamble away tokens, for tickets, for cheap crap. How does this all work? Well basically, the parents buy the tokens. The kids insert the tokens into exciting "games of chance." If they beat the odds and "hit", they'll be rewarded with tickets. They then carry their giant, plastic cup full of tickets over to a little ticket redeming shop. There they can choose junk to take home based on the amount of tickets they are redeming. For example, 25 tokens may get you a whaky-wall-walker; 150 might get you a dazzling, metal band digital watch. Snazy.

The point is, is that kids love it, the same way adults love gambling in casinos. It's set up pretty much the same way: Chuck E. Cheeses is a noisy, busy environment filled with neon lights flashing, bells and whistles chiming, plenty of food and drink, and games of chance to loose money on... Oh, and of course the obligatory stained, red carpeting on the floor. It's exciting, dangerous and provactive. What more could a child or adult want in a money loosing pit?

Now, I'm not trying to say that starting kids off early with gambling is a bad thing. It's simply something interesting to observe.
