the cubbies are coming, the cubbies are coming

So, I thought that I would like living near Wrigley field but that is not the case. Don't get me wrong, the team is great although I haven't really decided between the Cubs and the White Soxs. I just hate a majority of the fans. They have been staying at my hotel the past couple of days and I'm feed up with them. I don't understand the drunk guys that try and hit on me while they are checking in. I'm obviously sober and not interested. Do they think I'm going to fall in love with them when they wreek of beer and sweat and are slurring their words. Honestly!! There are plenty of drunk cubby fan females out. Go hit on them. I wish they could just hear themeselves. Honest to god this is a true quote from last night. "If my friend orders porn on the tv tonight and I get charged I'm tea-bagging him!" I didn't think tea-bagging was something straight guys did to each other. Oh well.

i'm not as young as i used to be

Alright, so maybe I'm not 21 anymore. I don't think I can do the whole staying out till dawn and still get up and go to work the next day. My feet still hurt which is really making me rethink my sentiments about "comfort over fashion". I used to think screw it, live with the pain and it will leave tomorrow. My only consolidation is that my co-workers now don't think I never do anything or that I'm the "librarian" type.

Okay, so I'm really sucked in

So, a couple of weeks ago I just start this blogger thing and now I found out I could be on facebook so I'm doing that too. I have a feeling I am going to be doing a lot more talking about nothing in the next few months. You guys won't know what hit you.
Oh, guess what happened at work today. I literally was asked by a guest if I gave "massages". Let me just say I was a little creeped out. After that John and I figured out that he was a little nuts. He started talking about the government watching us and he said that he gets instructions every morning on what to do that day. And as if that wasn't enough after he went to his room he called down and asked if we had razors at the front desk. I said yes and then he asked if he could come down and get it if he was in his underwear. I calmly told him no and then he proceeded to ask if he could come down in a towel because he didn't know if he had pants! I kept thinking, I hope to god you can find your pants because I certainly don't want to deal with that. He eventually came down fully clothed which I was happy about. Let me just say you see some of the craziest things in a hotel. I can handle the prostitutes and transvestities. I can even handle the extremely religious but those wackos sure do try my patience.

So I was going through my pictures today and I came across this one. The "Amanda & Katie Caserole" from homecoming. Makes me feel like I'm back in college again. Ah, those were the days. Maybe I'll rekindle them in the future. But for now this is enough for me.

the real world sucks

I know it isn't a monumental discovery but yes, the real world does suck. I guess I had high hopes that as soon as I got out of school I would be off doing great things and have lots of stuff to talk to my friends about but sadly that is not the case. I'm living in Chicago and I hardly ever go out on the weekends. It makes me feel so old. I was driving home from work tonight at 11 and was passing lots of bars on Lincoln. I saw all these people waiting in lines to get in and everyone was dressed up for a night on the town and all I could think of was that I wished I was with them. I feel like if I'm living in Chicago and missing out on all the fun. It really makes me miss Stevens Point as crazy as that sounds. But at the same time I'm afraid to go back. I want to go so I can visit people but I feel like I don't have enough good things to say about what I'm doing to merit a visit. I also worry about certain people having the need to avoid me while I'm there and I hate that I cause that reaction. Oh well, I can't make everyone like me.

wouldn't it be nice to know what the end was while your in the middle?

So, for the most part the life I lead is very boring and filled with mundane things but every once in a while a conversation gets started that makes you think. What could have happened if things were different? What is going to happen in the future? I seem to have these thoughts a lot when I think of certain men in my life. If I hadn't moved to Vermont when I was 11 would Jason and I be in a relationship or would we have stayed the way we are now, in a perpetual state of sexual tension? And why the hell am I still thinking about Craig? I wish I could just forget about men completely. Now in case you happened to have watched The Bachelor earlier this week, I don't mean to say that I want to go into a nunnery or that I hate men. I just wish I could stop thinking like I do. Anyway, I hope this will be my last rant on men for awhile. I know how you all must love hearing this from me. Once again, I appoligize for my topic today, I just needed to write out some of my thoughts.

the calm after the storm

So New Years is over and things are getting pretty boring around here. I spend my time at work counting down the minutes until I am out of there and suprisingly I don't get interupted that much in my counting. Today was the day of the crazies. I swear almost every guest I dealt with today had "issues". One lady was litterally talking to herslef (which she hadn't done when I checked her in) and she told me that god was confused and I need to let him know that I think he's doing a good job. Then she proceeded to tell me that she created everyone and everything in the room. WACKO!!! I had to try really hard not to laugh because I couldn't believe what I was dealing with. There were other nuts today but nothing compared to this one lady. So I'm going to try and relax and prepare myself for another day at the nut house.
