bamboo wednesday! part 6! and WEEN!

so there's been some more growth on the bamboo front. it is definitely flourishing in this harsh office environment. essentially all i do is fill it with water every day, ignore it and take a photo of it once a week. i think that's the trick for all of you office people out there killing bamboo plants on a regular basis.

on friday night last week i went to see WEEN in concert at the docks (which is now the Sound Academy). it was one of the best concerts i've seen in ages and from what i've heard, it wasn't one of their best shows. i can only imagine how awesome it would have been had they been in peak form. from what i've been told, they have a reputation for playing for several hours straight - and i thought the 2 1/2+ they did play was pretty badass. i would highly recommend everyone find a copy of their new album and listen to it on repeat. hella good. they have such a unique style and a diverse sound. putting one of their albums on is kind of like listening to a mixed cd of crazy and funny music.

today is also halloween. i had almost forgotten about it because my office has absolutely NO holiday spirit whatsoever. the closest to enthusiastic this place gets is when the secretary (one of few people here with a pleasant personality) decides to try to do something fun and everyone else just smiles and nods. today she went around desk to desk giving out candy. i was the first of about 4 or 5 people who accepted it and thanked her. she goes to such great lengths to make sure people here are happy and everyone else here goes to great lengths to make sure they stay bored.

tomorrow i get the keys to my new place. i'm pretty excited, this couldn't come soon enough. i'm so tired of having to take the elevator down 23 flights with a bunch of assholes every morning in order to get to work. this morning the elevator was full of ghetto trash with music blaring from their cell phones.

yes, more than one of them had the external speakers of their mp3 cell phones cranked with shitty pop-rap music.

and they were listening to different songs.

then one of them started singing out loud with one of the songs.

when i moved into this building it wasn't full of asswipes with their music cranked at 7am trying their hardest to annoy the hell out of other people wanting to go to work.

okay, so i don't really WANT to go to work, it's more of a need to go to work in order to make money and not get fired. but the important part is that i'm moving soon to a house which means no more elevator rides with arseholes, no more people smoking in the hallway and no more building management shutting the water off twice a month. huzzah.

    I hate it when people play music from their cell phones like they're ghetto blasters or something. Especially when they decide that their ring is super awesome too, so they just have that play over and over. Arg. Oh, and then there are the ones whose friends call to play some music and it sounds like something from hell on speaker phone.

    People at my office have a lot of spirit. Most of them dressed like this.
