When you make a great joke, the person next to you looks at you and says, “You’re looking around for someone to high-five, aren’t you?”
Yes. Yes I am.
Dude, hasn’t life been just wicked awesome lately? So awesome, that I’m finding it a bit tough to think of beefs. Actually, I guess my one beef kind of comes out of this.
See, I’ve been having just a shit tonne of fun lately. And I feel like I have no one to share it with! I’m not really into phone calls, and sometimes texting or facebook doesn’t do a fantastic story justice, especially since I’m one for details. And really, I just don’t see friends in person enough to get it all out, because something wonderful happens every day, and we are all busy.
Wait, what is this beef even about? Uhhhh me not being a phone person? Not living in a 12-person dorm with all of my closest friends? The last one! Not living with all your friends so you can tell them everything all the time. Come on!
Well, I did have a great Good Friday, hence What’s Yo’ Beef being on Saturday this week… But it was one heck of a Monday to Thursday. I have some SERIOUS tax pain guys… Like couldn’t even sit on my couch tax pain. Those commercials aren’t lying, it’s real and there’s not much you can do about it but wait it out. I could keep going on for ages, but taxes man, COME ON!
Well, its been almost 5 months of beef, and although I do have some minor beefs this week (people who don’t shovel their sidewalks… COME ON) it’s the holiday season and I am feeling pretty good. So I thought it’s time for an anti-beef post. What are you happy about today? This week? This year?
My anti-beefs are being done with Christmas prep so I can enjoy the days leading up to Christmas, the fact that I am going to be in one of the most famous cities in the world for New Year’s Eve, and when your fashion choices are confirmed by experts on Cityline. I could go on, but these are the ones that inspired this post.
Well isn’t this just a feel good kind of post. Personally, I’m still totally on board for beefs (when your mittens get a hole in them and you’re just too lazy to sew it up, having a drink be just out of reach so you have to move to get it), but I’ll get on board with this, because afterall, Santa’s watching.
I guess my anti-beef today would be meeting new people. Isn’t it the best? Just connecting with strangers, or with people you don’t know super well, like work acquaintances. The past couple of days I’ve been travelling to Western Canada for work, and I’ve got to hang out with some of our sales guys out here. And man, they are the coolest. I think it’s a great reminder that there are a shit tonne of people in the world, and it’s really fun to meet them all.
Feel incredibly sick all day and subsist on only Premium Plus crackers and water, but force yourself to go to dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory because it’s the last time you’ll see some friends before they pop out another human being.
Have a great time, and of course you’ll have another beer just because everyone else is having one too.
Proceed to feel as insanely huge as your 9 months pregnant friend is. Mission accomplished, fatty.
Well, well, well. It’s our 10th What’s Yo Beef post already! Let’s dig right in, shall we?
My beef is pasta. Man, just pasta. It has everything going for it – it’s versatile, easy to make, quick to make, and just dirt cheap. So why does it have to be so shitty for you? And what the hell else am I supposed to make for lunch at work the next day other than just boiling up some pasta? Get healthy already, pasta! COME ON!
What is the deal with people cancelling plans? Just keep the plans, man. Otherwise, you’ll have people insanely pissed at you because they have to find alternate people to attend your stuff, and it’s a real bitch. It’s a good thing that the event in question, if, of course, I was referring to a specific event, is Octoberfest in Waterloo, and it’s going to be such a blast that nothing could mar this wonderful, wonderful day. COME ON (and let’s go to Octoberfest)!
