Holy Cow

It seems that proper preparation for tomorrow’s big Carnival of the Mundane (which I’m hosting by the way, just in case I forgot to mention that Monday or perhaps Tuesday or maybe even today) has made it very difficult for me to prepare a full post for tonight. Well, that and the fact that I fell off the hood of my truck while trying to replicate the Bo Duke 'Dukes of Hazzard' hood slide for a coworker. Apparently dress pants and an unwashed hood don’t make for good sliding, just plenty of friction…and a dry cleaning bill.

It’s too bad that I can’t devote the time to share what I was planning on writing about today. Well, I can share a little bit of it. It involved a Philly Cheese Steak, a map I had made for work that cost me $60 bucks (despite the fact that it had 14 errors), my coworker that got hit by a car while he was riding his bike the other day and his tour for us of the crash site during lunch, the theme song to The Fall Guy, Female Coworker’s two-tone hairdo and what happened when I told her it looked better before the big change, Willy Nelson’s ‘Pancho and Lefty’ and the fact that Harry Caray gave me advice in a dream last night. I really think it would have been one spectacular post, especially when it got to the part that involved the female tow truck driver that was trying to hit on me, or as I told everyone – trying to ‘hook’ up with me. Maybe I can revisit what would have been today’s post some other day.

For now however, I need to prepare for hosting tomorrow’s Carnival of the Mundane. The last thing I hosted was a big car show with mayors, celebrities and members of congress present. Hopefully this time around I’ll be a lot better with names and not half delirious because of heat stroke…

See you tomorrow!

Oh...oh oh oh. You told a female coworker that her hair looked better before she changed it?

Dude, you better start checking under your desk for bombs. Bad call on your part. ;)

Phew, I feel like I just went thru 25 posts in fast forward!!!
So about tomorrow..."break a leg"
(not by falling off a car hood!)

Not to be a pain, and I know this is mundane, but doesn't Willie spell his name with a "ie"?
as for heat stroke. I may just add that to my list of reasons why I don't like the beach.

* I am ready for the Carnival* ...

Ian: Yeah, I kinda spaced out towards the end of the day there.

Odat: Thanks, my male coworker broken an ankle when he got hit by the car, so my leg would compliment it very well.

Patti: Did I actually spell Mr. Nelson's name wrong? Thunder shall strike me now in my sleep tonight. I'm sure of it!

Pleas, please do someday get back to your original post idea! It sounds like a great episode of The Dukes Of Hazard meets Married With Children meets Herman's Head!

Ooops. I forgot to submit anything.
