The Cult of Personality

I want to take this time, at 4:30 in the morning, to recognize that I have gained a new follower of the Cult of grrouchie!
Everyone, welcome nailedontheriver to our little family and make him feel warm and welcome.

Today I finally get television added back into my life in the form of Direct TV.
I recall someone asking me why Direct TV over the others and it's simple - the NFL Package.  I have had Cox cable try and sell me on their "redzone" package where I can get updates and gobble de gook or whatever, but dammit I just want to watch the games and only Direct TV allows you to do that.
They also have the network that revived the show Damages and I really love that show.

For my internet services I have stuck with Cox Cable because that has been the only reliable cock in my life since moving to Vegas (don't type when you're tired, you'll make weird sexual jokes about yourself and people will be left to wonder).  I'm just not willing to switch to satellite or DSL because cable has been very good and reliable to me over the years.

Yesterday was my first day at the new job and everything went well other than this whole waking up before dog does shit.  I have never been able to adjust to having to be to work at 5:30 in the morning and I doubt it's going to happen anytime soon.  This week is all early and then next week I have two early, two late and one mid.  Well, that's what it says on paper anyways.  Next week I'll probably end up working one overnight  for a reset that is going on even though I know that does not sound nearly as appealing as I'd like it.
I volunteered to do the overnight to show that I'm a team player and because I wanted to hang out with friends that night which would be impossible when closing.  Whatever.

While not updating every single day, I have found a way to keep track of the liquids that go into my body that will probably let me sum up a few days to a week at a time.  Excitement huh?  Next I'll keep track of the liquid that comes out of my body for all of you.....
ok, maybe not on that last one.... eewwwwww

Now that Vacation is over I'm also back to salads during lunch, didn't realize I actually missed them while on vacation.

I've started reading another book - Bubba and the Dead Woman.
It's been on my "to read" list for a while now and my goal is to read a chapter per day while on lunch.  I think this will help me to get through my goal of 2 books in October.  I also happened to play about an hour of Video Games with the kid last night.  

Life is good - except waking up at 4 in the morning
grrouch out


  1. Yeah, I saw the first two seasons of Damages and thought it was really good. No clue what's going on with the show these days. What season is it in? Five? Maybe I'll catch up with it when I finish watching Homeland S1.

    1. I think season 5 is the last season.
      I saw 3 and 4 on DVD and am waitinformation for a sale to pick them up

  2. I can't imagine having to wake up at 4 a.m. every day. I guess you can't just stay up all night and show up for work at 5:30, huh? I would try it at least once--they might not notice if you're drunk.

      Not so much anymore.
