My Three Dads

There are somethings in this life that amuses me, and it makes me a pretty sorry person. Like this for instance:
I of course have my real birth father. But at my job at the Japanese Grocery Store and the job I have now. People think I am the son of the owner. I rarely do anything to dissuade them of the notion. It always makes me laugh.
Also, it confuses me at times. My boss at the grocery store is Japanese, and people always I thought I was his son. I am not Japanese. I am pretty much white as can be. Never the less, people came there all of the time asking me were my "Dad" was at. Most people there thought I was half-Japanese half-Caucasian.
At the job I have now. People continually think I am my boss' son here as well. Which, I would think would give me a lot more sympathy than I get. The reason being that I am left to run the office by myself a couple of times a year, and no one finds it odd that my "family" left me all alone again!
You know I am getting all of the shit work from my family.

Blogging Paradox

I always think of something to say or write when I am at work, but can't. When I get home, I can't remember what I wanted to say. I can write about anything I want, and I have all the time in the world, but I can't think of anything. Oh well...

Global Economy

I just don't get how the global economy works. Especially, after reading this story. Why in the world would the price of oil go up, because some English navy men are captured in Iran? I just don't understand why people panic so much over something that happens half a world away. Maybe I should read a book on it sometime...

Comic Strip Websites

I now have 2 comic strip websites that I go to often, and make me laugh hysterically. I don't read many of the strips in the paper any more, because I don't think they are funny. These 2 I think are great.

1. The Argyle Sweater by Scott Hilburn
2. Thanks to Rob for pointing me to: The Perry Bible Fellowship by Nicholas Gurewitch
