|04:55 pm - Move over, valium! The Killer Klowns are a komin'!|
My God, they're playing the theme from Forrest Gump over the Muzak system at work.
My God, I recognize the theme from Forrest Gump.
Uh, anyway, I've run out (almost) of stuff to do at work this afternoon. This is awful; I got plenty of sleep last night so I've been uncharacteristically wide awake and aware all day long. No, I didn't go to bed right after I posted that entry (and wow, I suck at writing journal entries when I'm tired). No, instead of going to bed I watched a really bad movie. Then I went to bed, fell asleep more quickly than usual, and didn't wake up once during the night. I certainly don't recommend using Killer Klowns from Outer Space as a sedative, but it worked for me.
As I mentioned a little while back, ThinkGeek sells a dorky Classic Computers calendar that I wanted. It was delivered yesterday, ensuring at least a year's worth of funny looks and perceived social ambivalence. January features the Commodore Pet 2001. Ever see one of those? Me either. This is way better than the UPS calendar I got from that hot redhead last year. Of course, these days there's a different hot redhead in my life, and she doesn't have to win my affection with UPS calendars.
I bought the calendar with a $25 Visa giftcard I'd gotten for Christmas, and in order to get as much of the $25 out of it as possible, I looked at ThinkGeek's other offerings to see what I might add to my order. Once shipping was figured in there wasn't much that would keep me below my limit, so I settled on lightspeed delivery and a plush mono virus.
For some reason I thought that paying to get "kissing disease" would be more fun. Oh, well.
Current Mood: anxious
Current Music: The theme from Forrest Gump on the Muzak at work.
Forrest Gump has a theme song?
Well a hello and a howdy
I'm so very glad to see you.
And I'm getting kinda rowdy
And I've got a lot to say
And I'm gonna to try and do my very best to entertain you
And I hope you'll be delighted by the time you go away
And I am called by name, Forrest Gump
And I'm here just to entertain you
Make you laugh and maybe offend you
But I hope that you, will be happier than when you came because
It is more fun. So relax, prepare to come undone.
Madness in large portions I'll serve you
Second helpings come with mashed potatoes.
Wahdee, weedee, wahdee waydee
I am called Forrest Gump
Not Woods or Trees or Orchard or by any other name
And I'll punch you in the gizzard if you dare to call me Jungle
'Cause my name is Forrest Gump
And it's simply not the same.
No it's simply not the same
Yes, I'm named Forrest Gump
And it's simply not the same.
Back when I was in a department that was crazy enough to not turn off their muzak, they were playing some regular music mixed in with the muzak. Guess what I got to hear a few times each day? "I want it that way" or some shit by that one group I don't like. Heh, I had to think about it for a minute. All I could think of at first was the title "Backdoor Lover".
oh dear god... i have heard that song far too many times... every where I go... although I can force myself to hear the weird al parody lyrics now.
