Our hero has a dilema!

So I’ve been chatting with Steph all morning, and we made what I affectionately call a “play date”.  That got me thinking… and then getting yelled at by her.  Granted this voicemail was left quite a while ago, it seems like the right one to post.  Talking with Steph today, I realized that it has been all too long since I have posted, and there are people on my facebook (/jacob.sylvia), you know who you are, that want, neigh! DEMAND! Yet another post.

Here I sit, waiting for my blackberry’s OS to update, and I think to myself, self, “How about we let the kind people (person) who read my blog in on another little part of our hero’s life.

Without further adieu:

So it seems that we may have caught our hero at a weak point in her day.  Steph isn’t one to get sloppy often, but this seems to be a time when we have thrown caution to the wind.  One interesting point to note is that she asks for a pep-talk…  Not that she listens anyway!

Hopefully our hero wont get offended if we mention her new interest, with whom each seems to be “smitten” – her words, not mine!  I’m looking for a clever name for our hero’s new sidekick, as his name is Jake… and not me… so that will get confusing.  I think I’m going to call him “Matey”.  I’m also pretty sure that if / when he reads this, I’ll be lowered a notch or two.

To leave you all this fine afternoon, I’m thinking that I might bring our hero on as a guest writer?  Thoughts?

The first installment of “Steph’s Angry Ramblings”

Welcome to the first installment of “Steph’s Angry Ramblings”.

Warning for those who don’t know me or Steph.  This segment will likely be FILLED with some type of profanity.  You’ve been warned.

Eventually a few of these might be passworded to protect the innocent.  I’ve talked with Steph about this, and she is in relative agreement that this is going to be a worthwhile venture for the both of us.

For those of you who don’t know me.  I HATE the phone.  Hate it.  I believe that it is a necessary communication tool.  That being said, I rarely answer mine.  I think this happened because of the job.  As soon as annoying vendors realized that they could get a direct line to my CELL, they completely ignored the desk phone.  This became incredibly annoying.  I would often be sitting at home, sometime around 8ish, and I would get a call from “Friendly Printer Co. Number 7” asking if I wanted any help servicing my printers.  Now, unfortunately, this has led to the total lack of caring when a call comes in, with a few notable exceptions.  You know who you are.

This is what started Steph on her tirades, and thus, the “Fake-Angry Voicemail” was born.

This installment has our hero out on a date.  I believe this is a first date, (way to go Steph).  Steph sometimes feels the need to give me a play-by-play of her life as it happens, real-time.  That is what this message is about.

Sidenote:  These messages are usually much better than this.  Steph…  Kick it up a notch.  Now.
