Fumbling my way through the week

Stupid Vikings. They got this fair-weather fan on the bandwagon at the beginning of the season and now I'm mourning with my fellow Minnesotans. Yesterday, most conversations I had went like this...Me: "Hey, how are you?" Everybody else: "Well...you know." And yes. We all knew. The game was a heartbreaker.

Not even last night's episode of The Bachelor and all its awkward craptastic-ness could pull me out of the funk. It's not that I care that much about the Vikings. It's more that I can't believe I spent nearly 4 hours of my weekend completely stressing out—high blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, lots of yelling at the TV—for nothing.

Today I received an e-mail invite to our office's annual Super Bowl Potluck and the invite from the Fun Committee used this photo:
See, not even the FUN Committee could be excited about it. But the world will go on. I'll cheer the Colts to victory. And after all is said and done, I still have the Winter Olympics and a few more months of hockey to look forward to.

So this was my really long way of saying I just don’t feel like writing a thoughtful blog post today. It’s not just the Vikings. It’s January weather. It’s being sick of staring at my computer. And it’s that I have no words to respond to John Travolta flying Scientology ministers to Haiti to “re-establish communication within the body by touching people through their clothes...” Ummmm, yeah. Goodnight.


  1. Fun Committee? Is this similier to the Party Planning Committee on The Office? Sounds just about as competent.

  2. Ha! Yeah, same general idea. Except that our committee is a little more creative and efffective. And there is no crazy Angela running the show!

  3. Ha! Tim, that's exactly what I had thought! Next NFL season is soooo far away!
