the rent’s due and green olives

Tonight, Mare reheated a calzone she brought home from work almost two weeks ago. It still tasted delicious. She also brought home a spinach artichoke dip and some bread which topped me off. I have yet to enjoy an ice cream sandwich I got from the grocery store on Sunday.

I also had a craving for pitted green olives stuffed with pimento which I also picked up at the store. The jar is already more than half-empty, and I blame the unique saltiness of this prepared fruit. I’m sure my sodium level is through the roof.

I am currently listening to Mineral, which I have to say, IMHO, was one of the best Austin bands to ever exist. Sure, they sound a bit like Sunny Day Real Estate, but they still rock. I guess you could say I’m a fan of heartfelt lyrics backed with screaming guitars. I’m gonna call out a few tracks you should get from Soulse… ahem.. somewhere and enjoy. You might dig them. Check out: Love Letter Typewriter, The Last Word Is Rejoice, Five, Eight and Ten, July and Parking Lot. Those are off the top of my head, but if you do end up really liking them, their two full-length releases are The Power of Failing and endserenading.

The rent is due on Wednesday, but they seem to be behind on mailing out the water/trash bill. This annoys me, because I’d rather just give it to them in one big check than have to make the effort of dropping off two.


Are the office desks and the rest of the furniture at your business looking old? Keeping the look of your company modern can help keep you in business. A smart company stays current both in a business sense and an image sense. The identity of your business not only relies on what’s presented on paper but also how the establishment is kept up.
