Major League Face Washing
Yesterday, we went to dinner (Japanese-style Korean BBQ, yum) and these two guys were sitting at the table next to us and they were hilarious. The first thing I noticed was they kept throwing each others first name into the conversation, like sales people tend to do. "I am a team player, Michael. I want you to know, Michael, I'm IN this project." "I'm telling you, Josh, I walked out of that tasting with a hard-on. I mean, literally JOSH, I had a HARD-ON." (That's just gross, dude. Especially over dinner.)
My favorite part was when Michael illustrated that the food had improved at a restaurant with, "It's like when Microsoft went from Word to Vista." There's just so much wrong with that analogy. That was followed by him saying "That's a no-brainer" 6 times in a row. And his partner triumphantly declaring, "I'm the Ideas Man. I'm the Visionary." Just for context, these were two white guys, one with a REAL bad rug, talking about opening a Japanese restaurant, "or whatever, I don't care what it is. It's all about real estate." Gotta love L.A.
Afterwards, I found a fully-posable Rin Tohsaka action figure. I mean fully.
I should be playing in a game tonight with my co-ed team, but I'm afraid I'll re-injure my leg before the Blue Lady Kings summer season opener tomorrow. I feel like a wuss though. I do have one of those 'not so much a headache, but really nauseated and my eyes hurt' migraine. Last time I played with one of those I threw up in my living room. Good times. I don't think they'll miss me too much anyway, especially since I keep blocking my teammate's shots. I feel like I'm such a non-factor that people forget I'm out there, so it's really poignant when they take shots right into me. I'm supposed to be screening the goalie, not the puck. Oh well. I got better playing with the Lady Kings, so I'll get better with this team. Playing with guys is different, but I'll get used to it. I hope.
