Memorial Day Weekend...

Lots of fun times, and three day weekends. I'm proud that this is my THIRD memorial day weekend where I don't have to work at a movie theater, but I must say I do kind of miss it. The good working at the movie theater, when I was a projectionist. Not the bad days, when I worked floor staff. That SUCKED! Except the one year at the 3-plex, when we were supposed to get The Lost World, but didn't, so nobody came to our theater. It was very quiet. I also believe that weekend had one of the best days of work ever, when all the managers left, leaving me and my friends Jose and Bill in charge of the entire theater. Man, nothing got done.

Well, that's not entirely true. Jose and I got the keys to the NBA Jam video game, and gave ourselves four quarters in which to reenact the NBA finals that year, and I'm proud to say that for once, the Chicago domination was stopped dead in it's tracks by the LA Lakers. (It would have been better if I weren't Chicago, but it's the metaphor that matters more).

So, in honor of Jose, Bill, Tony, Brian, Ernesto, Lee, Liza, Serietta, Tom, Laura, Lakeya, Damon, Miguel, T-Bone and Brady and anyone else I'm probably leaving out (I bet Mike Shannon gets a kick out of this), I offer this:

Have a great weekend. I'm gonna be a UGE* dork and try to get into the Star Wars convention. Just so I can call someone a Nerd Herder.

Wait a minute, the actual term is Nerf Herder, right? Literally, that means there's not just one, but a group of shepherds who specialize solely in moving Nerf products?

Blast-a-ball kicked ass, too.
