i found amusement this morning, lumbering to work on only 4 hours sleep (maybe less). i notice it every morning i'm on time, in fact, it's how i tell if i AM on time.

everyone that works the 6 am shift parks in the designated parking area. they walk across the large parking lot through the gigantos building. there's usually around 10 - 20 people at any given time doing this.

almost NEVER is a word muttered through this "ritual". it does not matter if you're walking next to your bestest friend in the whole wide world. it doesn't matter if you're so close to someone that they can almost feel you breating on their neck. it doesn't matter if you see someone that you had been trying repeatedly to contact over some matter the day before.

it's just a constant... parade... of zombies.

i started giggling heinously on the way across the parking lot today over the ridiculousness and comical view it was. this warranted a dirty look from a lady walking next to me, having thusly ruined her zombie trek. i giggled out what i thought was funny, and the look turned more sour, completed with a muttered "it's too damn early."

so. the daily I.C.E. Gallery March to Arms is quite a spectical to watch. just, um... don't approach the animals.

Poll #52498 guilty pleasures, television

What do you watch on t.v. that you don't want anyone to know about?

Power Rangers, Mighty Morphin, In Space, Lost Galaxy, Whatever. Gimme Blue Ranger!!!
Little House on the Prairie. Mr. Edwards slays me. *sings the old man tucker song*
ER. The drama. The horror. The ludicrous plot lines. The bleeding out.
Reality t.v. I mean, it's SOO like real and all, right? Like totally.
Any sitcom circa before 1965. *wistful sigh* if only life was truly like that, with ma and da in different single beds in the same room.

Also, you may remember me asking you to vote in the Creative Loafing poll a
couple of weeks ago. Well, apparently CL lost all their online ballots and
are asking people to vote again.

So, if you're online, have some free time and, you know, you like me and
all, take a moment to go and cast your vote! IMPORTANT: You'll have to vote
for at least 10 categories on a ballot for your vote to count. The deadline
is Tuesday, August 20.

I'm not trying to tell you how to vote, BUT... if you didn't have other
plans, maybe you might want to cast a vote for me (Paul Melancon) in the
following categories:

Local Vocalist
Local Songwriter

Spread the word if you so desire!

If you're not sure who to vote for in other categories, drop me a line. I
can suggest several extremely good, well-deserving bands!

thanks so much!
