Canned Tink

5 Minutes Of Random Thoughts:
Start. As I walked around the office this morning, something sharp kept jabbing me from inside my dress-boot. I just now got the chance to seek privacy and remove it. I figured it was a rock, or a burr, or maybe even a shell. Do you know what I found instead? Hoop's toenail clipping. I think we've reached an all new comfort level. Hoop and my anniversary is in ten days. For those of you who don't know, and probably because I've never told, we will have been together for a year.... Almost as long as I've had this blog. And you all have been here to witness our transitions all along. Kind of makes you feel like you're on the "Truman Show" doesn't it? Much better than being in "Monster," the movie Hoop and I watched last night. It's bad enough my sleep for the last week has been plagued by nightmares, some severe enough to make me shoot out of bed in fear or bawling my eyes out. I think I might sage the house. There's a funky vibe kickin' in our bedroom... Probably induced by the toxic fumes of too many cleaning agents. I swear if this house doesn't sell soon I'm going to start sweating bleach. When I walked into work this morning one of my coworkers met me at the coffee machine. "How'd you handle that Monster yesterday?" My first thought was pretty dirty. "He was great!" But then the confusion set in. HOW did she know what movie I'd watched last night? "How did you know?" I whispered to her in awe. "Huh?" She responded. "Huh?" I said back. "That monster of a project you were working on yesterday. How'd it go?" Holy crap. I need a vacation.End.

Daily Hoop Conversation:
Hoop: What if there was a scale that measured love?
Tink: It would prove I love you more.
Hoop: Oh yeah? My love is so great, it would more than likely break it.
Tink: Mine would probably register as something very little-
Hoop: HA!
Tink: -because it spun around so many times it came back to the beginning.
Hoop: Hmph.
Tink: How about we both love each other more?
Hoop: Is that possible?
Tink: *Shrugs* Who cares?

Around The Water Cooler:
Warehouseman 1: How do you spell "warehouse?"
Tink: W-A-
Warehouseman 2: Aw man!
Warehouseman 1: Pay up.
Tink: What did I miss?
Warehouseman 1: We had a bet going.
Warehouseman 2: I thought it was spelled "W-H-A-R-E-H-O-U-S-E."
Warehouseman 1: And I kept telling him it was "W-A-E-R-H-O-U-S-E."

Daily Hoop Conversation 2:
Hoop: Did you hear about Screech?
Tink: From "Saved By The Bell?"
Hoop: Yeah. He's trying to get someone to market a porn video that he made.
Hoop: Uh huh.
Tink: That is... I'm so...
Hoop: Speechless?
Tink: Grossed out! WHO would buy it?

(Any guesses what the title of Dustin Diamond's video is? Wait for it... "
Saved By The Smell." Bwahahaha! I think I just peed in my pants a little.)

Daily Hoop Conversation 3:
Tink: Where are we going?
Hoop: I don't want to take you back to work. So we're running away.
Tink: Like Thelma and Louise?
Hoop: Yeah! Wait...
Tink: *Starts laughing*
Hoop: More like Dumb and Dumber.
Tink: Can I be Dumb?

Seriously only a year? Really? I thought you two kids had been together WAY longer than that. Shows ya what I know :-)

TOO FUNNY on the water cooler conversation.

Congrats on the almost-one-year-anniversary!

First, let me just say the notion of Dustin Diamond getting laid ever should be a beacon of hope for all us social misfits and eggheads. Then... yeech.

Maybe your warehouse guys were thinking of Weyerhaeuser. [smirk]

So you two have been together for one year and you've had the blog about that long too. Kinda like an online version of "Newlyweds" only your not actually married yet. And you guys are smart. And actually have talent. Ok, so it's not anything like "Newlyweds".

But, it does make us all feel like part of the family.

Frequent reader, first-time commenter here...
Congrats on your milestone in couplesmanshipness. I really do feel like I know you guys, just from your conversations!

And, I heard Dustin Diamond on the MJ radio show yesterday morning (I'm in Jax, close to you - it's on 97.9 every morning) and he was on a phone interview about it. Apparently he's NOT trying to market it, as much as someone ELSE is trying to market it much to his chagrin. Either that, or I'm really naive in the business of Porn Marketing, and acting surprised and ignorant as to who it could be is really the way to gain publicity. that I think of it, I'm TOTALLY unsure of the motives... Anyway, supposedly it's him and TWO (not ONE BUT TWO!!!) ladies. I know, gross....

Um...are we all part of the family or just sick voyeurs? Sigh...just when I was starting to feel good about myself...

I never would have known you guys are celebrating a year. I would have thought you'd been together much longer considering how close you are and how good you are for each other.

At 28 September, 2006, Blogger Arabella said...

Awwww.....happy upcoming anniversary! I, too, would have thought that you had been together a really long time.

Screech doing a Dirty Sanchez on film--I think I've heard everything now.

Only a year? It sounded like you two had been together forever!

LMAO at the warehouse warehousemen around the water cooler! Us technical writer types totally appreciate spelling jokes!

Congrats on one year. I haven't been here the whole time, but I've been enjoying the ride so far - very much!

And to Emily above - Ladies?? Ladies?? Um hummmm....

Newt/TB/Arabella/MrsPao: We've known each other for almost two years. But it took him a year to finally ask me out. That was a very loooong year too. Where as the second one seemed to zip by. Funny how that goes. :)

Foo: Hoop wants to buy it just to say we have it. Although neither of us would actually WATCH it.
That's just much too creepy. LOL.

Jay: You ARE part of the family.

Emily: Welcome! :)

And here Hoop and I thought he was just trying to jump on the Paris Hilton bandwagon. Having porn videos "leaked" seems to be the new trend.

Susan: Well... Since IM the one putting it out there, and I know you're watching (LOL That sounded sick huh?) I don't think you could be considered a "voyeur." How about I adopt you too? You could be Jay's sister. hehe

Sassybead: You may not have been along for ALL of it... But you were here for most of the good stuff. ;) My posts in the beginning were PATHETIC. hehe

ALL: I never mentioned how long Hoop and I had been together because I didn't want the knee-jerk reaction to be, "Oh, well it's new. You haven't been together long enough- You shouldn't have moved in together so soon-." I didn't want anyone to question our love for each other.

At 28 September, 2006, Blogger graymama said...

Anyone who would question your love for each other is an idiot!

Your relationship with Hoop is inspiring :-)

Happy 1 year! Here's to many more to come!!!

Is it wrong for me to vote every time I drop by?

Congrats on the year! I'm sure it is only the first of many, many, many years.

The whole dirty sanchez thing re: screech makes me want to vomit.

At 28 September, 2006, Blogger Freakazojd said...

Congrats on your anniversary! you should both ware something nice and go out!
(Snicker snicker)

Congratulations! A whole year is way cool. Warehousemen are scary.

At 28 September, 2006, Blogger gawilli said...

I hate those conversations when you thing you are both on the same page (monster project), come to find out that you were really in an entirely different book. Happy Anniversary soon.

At 29 September, 2006, Blogger DebbieDoesLife said...

You and Hoop make me get all misty-eyed.

Love the Tinkatude one! And the new look overall!

Dude, Dave is the biggest Saved By the Bell fan I've ever met...he just sent me an article from the NY Times about the Screech videotape. The TIMES is reporting about this, LMAO! The article said all sorts of crazy things happened...there was mention of Dirty Sanchez...

DUDE. I'll never look at Screech the same way again.

Congratulations on your anniversary and love! Don't ever lost that!

I hope you have a great day!

At 30 September, 2006, Blogger Chris said...

You've only been together a year?! Damn - you just seem like you've been together a lot longer than that.

At 05 October, 2006, Blogger FA said...

Congrats on your 1 year anniversary!

The warehouse guys remind me of some of the programmers I used to work with. They spoke in code or was it Klingon?

"Saved by the Smell"? OMG! How gross!
