50: TOO MUCH PEZ

"Oh My God! I'm coming down!!"
- Dr Zoidberg, Futurama

I think I've eaten too much Pez. You know those little candies that come in those hand held dispensers. I have the Spiderman one sitting on my desk at work, along with all the Pez I could want.

I start eating the Pez at the start of my shift, and by 3pm - I'm coming down. This is usually followed by forty five minutes of me with my head in my hands yelling "When will I learn!?!?" Ahh, the remorse of the sugar junkie.

In other news, Mel has given the gift of Wash, bringing completion to my life. Yes that's right folks - now I can happily die. In case you haven't cottoned on, I'm referring to the Serenity comics, the Wash cover for issue 3. So great to have a comic reading, Joss Whedon lovin' chick around. I'm sending you grooves of gratitude Mel. You can expect them in four to six weeks.

My other Serenity acquisitions are providing hours of priceless entertainment in the form of my Jayne and Reaver action figures. Especially the Reaver. So so cool!! Thanks mum!!

Right now I'm peaking. On the Pez. Fast typing, fast talking and listening to Madonna's "Vogue". Makes for an interesting combination.
Had a great night last night at Comfy Chair. Stayed till closing time yet again. Trip, Lollie and Angry Nick came along. Angry Nick was surprisingly placid. I think Lollie is vying for his hard earned status as 'angriest man in the office'. Nick will have to lift his game and bring a gun into work or something.

It's such a sunny day outside and it makes me remember the joy of summer. It just seems so utterly inappropriate to be depressed in summer. Good weather seems to put (mostly) everyone in a good mood. I've been frequently flashback-ing to training, ten months ago. Starting this job, being happy being single, meeting my friends. All by the sunny backdrop of my awesome new job.

Needless to say some of the shiny-ness has worn off since that time. But I'm still relatively content. I've certainly been in worse spots in my life. Like that time when Barbara Streisand stole all my CDs. Yup, that was pretty bad.

I have to go and wash the sunscreen from my arms. Trying to avoid the dreaded 'driver's arm' this year. Wish me luck!

the end.

And you will know My name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee . . .

Most of my figurines have removable clothes and are of porn stars. And they're anatomically correct. *grins*
