March

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: March

It’s that time of month again!”

Oh no! She’s going to ask us about March! Run!”

Scott and Frank leap up and start dashing towards the bedrooms, but Ann blocks their way.

Tough. It won’t hurt that much, I promise.”

That’s what the doctor always says too, before he comes at me with a giant needle!”

At least he puts a Mickey Mouse band-aid on your boo-boo.”

Yeah, that’s true.” Frank sits back down and resumes his game with Sara.

Hey, I’m losing 34-22? You didn’t pause it?!”

Oh, you wanted it to pause it? My mistake.” Sara grins.

You’ll regret that! Prepare for an amazing comeback.”

My birthday’s in March, so that’s cool. This year’s the big Two Seven.”

The big Two Seven? What’s so great about 27?”

Well, It’s prime for one thing.” Sara calls over from the couch.”

No it’s not…nine and three..?”

Oops. Nevermind. So what is so great about 27 then Scott?”

I just wanted to say the big Two Seven. Nothing special.”

I know it’s a little cliché going with a food answers, but I like cornbeef and cabbage as well as Irish soda bread.”

Speaking of that, did you see that Guinness is looking to make St. Patrick’s Day an official holiday?”

Not a bad idea. I love Guinness.”

They got a petition I guess? I’d sign that.”

915,913 signatures to go apparently. That’s a lot in only two weeks. I don’t even like Guinness but I think it’s a good idea.”

They even have a commercial, where they’re interviewing what I guess is a pilgrim, asking him if he’s jealous about the idea.”

On that avenue of thought, I’m going to say green beer is my favorite thing about March.”

Green beer? You know it’s just food coloring right? I could make you some green beer right now.”

Wouldn’t taste the same if it’s not the 17th. Your turn Ann, I know how you like to weasel out of your own questions.”

That’s easy, my favorite thing about this March is that Wednesday marks one whole year of writing the blog. I’m proud of myself.”

A bit modest are we? I’m going to say Easter. It’s neat that it’s early this year. I Looove dying Easter Eggs.”

Yeah, that should be fun. Maybe we should all stick around here this year instead of going home to our families. Last but not least, Sara. No baseball reasons, you always find a way to make it about baseball.”

But.. But..”

No! And I might not let you use it in April either!”

Speaking of days that should be holidays, Opening Day should really be a national holiday so we can all watch our national pasttime.”

I’m with you there. Look on the bright side, I’m my own boss and you are unemployed. We can both watch it at leisure!”

I knew there was a benefit to being home all day! If I can’t have baseball, I’ll go with the ‘In like a lion, out like a lamb’ cliché. I look forward to the warm weather again.”

See, and no one died. If you guys start thinking about your April answers, maybe you won’t find it so grueling.”

And Frank, you suck. Did you just lose to Sara by 27 points?”

Best two out of three?”

Super Bowl Sunday

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Super Bowl Sunday

After spending the day proclaiming myself the premier Giants fan in the apartment, Ann demanded that I write this post after the game. Frank’s a Panther fan, Sara and Billy like the Jets, Ann calls herself a Bills fan, and Tabitha, when I demanded she pick a team, chose the Browns because she thought it was a silly name for a football team.

Action continues at the end of the fourth quarter.

There is still one second left! Get off the field so we can finish this!”

Why bother? Do we really need to go through the process of Eli catching a football to finalize it? He’s not going to drop it and then have the Patriots recover for a touchdown, that’s just stupid.”

League rules though.”

They’ve already hit Coughlin with the Gatorade, that’s good enough for me.”

Some good commercials though.”

Hey, let’s bask in the glory of the Giants championship a little before we discuss mundane advertisements.”

The last time the Mets won the World Series, it was after the Giants won the Super Bowl.”

Aren’t you jinxing it a little bit?”

Nah. Come to think of it, the last time the other local football team won, the Mets won the World Series also.”

Well, maybe the Mets win and then it’s the Jets turn next year?”

That’s definitely a jinx.”

Anything in association with the Jets is a jinx.”

I liked the Thanksgiving balloon commercial with Stewie and Underdog racing for the bottle of coke.”

Oh fine. Let’s discuss the commercials. It was a little surprising to see Charlie Brown of all people prevail though.”

Brown never prevails. He’s like the Jets.”

Stewie is usually foiled too…and Underdog by nature is not favored to win.”

Good point.”

The Garmin ad where the reenacter shamefully hides the electronic device after he uses it to get there was funny. I like the catchy song too, Garmin, Garmiiin.” Sara sings.

Somehow I don’t think it’d find that forest though.”

A Geico caveman commercial comes on, where the cavemen mock the Caveman tv show.

Did the Geico Cavemen just mock the television show?”

They sure did. Even they know it sucked.”

That Doritos commercial was awesome! The one where he baits the trap for the mouse.”

And then the giant mouse leaps out of the wall and beats the crap out of him? Classic.”

The Sales Genie commercials were pretty bad though.”

Yeah, they lose. Worse than the Patriots.”

I kind of enjoyed the Diet Pepsi Max with ginseng commercials. The one where they’re all head-bobbing and falling asleep.”

The best part was seeing Joe Buck falling asleep. I guess he bores even himself.”

No no, the best part is right at the end where the guy yells ‘Stop it!’ at the two girls.”

That was one of the best Super Bowls ever, but now I’m going to hit the hay. Early shift tomorrow.”

Hit the hay? I don’t think anyone actually uses that phrase anymore..unless you are headed out to a barn.”

You should convert your room into a hay loft. That’d be pretty cool.”

Maybe tomorrow. Tonight I’m going to ‘go to sleep’. Better?”

Kind of boring, but I accept it.”

Good, goodnight.”

Is it too early to call in sick so I can attend the parade on Tuesday?”

Not if you’re working tomorrow..I’m sure George will accept that you somehow know you’re going to get sick after your shift tomorrow already.”

You’re right. I’ll wait ’till Tuesday morning, but you better remind me. George always yells at me for forgetting to call in.”

Aren’t you supposed to get someone to cover for you anyway? You could ask at your shift tomorrow..”

Hey, you’re right! I could do that..Bernice owes me a favor anyway. She’ll like this better than the other thing I keep suggesting..”

You know, one of these days your going to get sued for sexual harassment doing stuff like that.”

All I meant was burn me a couple of DVDs from her collection. What were you thinking you sicko?”

I’m sure that’s all you meant.”

Sexual innuendo? Me? Never!”
