If you want to find Jesus, try to remember where you last saw him. But he's usually stuck down the side of the sofa.

This club is filled with cheesy music and, more importantly, BEAutiful people. Allan is trying to get me drunk. Allan 1, me 0.

Working here is like an old Rhodes re-union. Here's one of my co-workers photographic rituals.

Late night TV, and coffee percs

I wonder: is this a TV ritual? Or a work ritual?

Both, I think. Good.

It's interesting working at a TV station, especially late at night. For example, there are people here all the time (the techs in the satellite-feed room next to us, for example, whom we briefly meet on nicotine runs to the outside). And, consequently, the building is always open.

Even in the nocturnal world of IT, there were at least some nights where the building was locked and the only activity inside was from cron jobs.

In addition, coffee seems to be eternal. What sweet, caffeinated bliss. I've never gone to the machine and found it empty: there's always a backup carafe (I've given up on those dinky little styrofoam cups. I brought my own uber-cup. Cuts down on trips back to the machine.)

Eye candy experience count this evening: 2.

Coffee laps

The upside of consuming an inordinate amount of coffee during the day while at work, is that you have lots of energy to run to the bathroom all the time.

Die Broke

Die Broke
A Radical Four-Part Financial Plan
Stephen M. Pollan and Mark Levine

You are not a corporation - you are a human being. Your money shouldn't outlive you. You should exit life as you came into it: penniless. Your assets are resources to be used, for your own benefit and for the benefit of those you love. Every dollar that's left in your bank account after you die is a dollar you wasted. Use your resources to help people now when you know they need it, when it will do the most good, rather than hoping they'll be helped when you're dead. The last check you write should be to your undertaker… and it should bounce.

Be here now.

Ah, a new year. A chance to just be yourself. To be known. To be outrageous. To be on TV.

Oh, and by the way, the new job started today.
