Unsolicited commentary and thoughts

I would think it’s a sad time when you find yourself rushing home to post a blog entry so you can say you successfully participated in National Blog Posting Month. But I did it. So suck it.

So I forgot to write an entry before I went to the coffee shop across the street to do my writing for the day. I avoid the wifi as much as I can when I’m writing because I’m horrible with distractions as it is. I’m about 500 words short for the fifth day of NaNoWriMo, and I plan to stay up until I get those 500 words in. Fortunately I’m a little drunk right now so I think the words are just gonna come flowin’ out!

We won our Kickball playoff game. Somehow we managed to tie the game, and apparently the way to settle ties in Kickball is with a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors – best of three. And yep, we won that somehow. Spec-ta-cu-lar.

Afterwards a few of us went to the bar for a drink. Luckily I haven’t eaten anything since 1pm. Funny story about that – one of my coworkers went to Chicago this past weekend and we got to talking about deep dish pizza which made me crave it. We found the closest place with well-reviewed Chicago style deep dish pizza was in Placentia, and somehow we decided to make the twenty minute drive out there for lunch. It was good, but not as good as the pizza in Chicago, and not something I would really drive out for.

So I leave the bar at 11:40, thinking oh yeah, I’ll make it back with plenty of time. They decided at this time to close the offramp I think, so I have to go up the 55 freeway and then come back and finally make it back to my laptop at 11:58pm for my awesome post.

At least now I don’t have to write a blog for today.
