Mind drifts.

I work at a well known grocery store and sometimes during my mundane days of stacking produce, my mind drifts to the things around me.

I present you with my work thoughts:

When I’m unloading a box of apples onto a display about 97% of every box is composed of properly shaped and coloured apples.  When I come upon a spotted, imperfect apple and have to throw it out, I feel bad like I am ostracizing the kid with bad acne in high school.

When I unload a broccoli crown box and set it on the counter, all the top green tree-like parts are sticking up and I feel like I’m looming over a forest like a giant.  Also, I feel that if I were to pick up a broccoli and up root a tree I could see the magical beasts that dwell in the forest as they run around and frolic.

It has come to my attention that several authors on this blog (and James Cameron) have entrusted me with a transformers name of Craigator2000. Although this name is wonderful, it reminds be a lot of the word alligator. Now an alligator is the fiercest animal in the animal kingdom. Ensnaring is prey in its DEATH GRIP JAWS OF DEATH the alligator rolls its victims until death ensues. Although I have tried to take down several elephants and giraffes in swamps, never have I been successful. So I pose to you the name CRAIGTIMUS PRIME. A name with James Cameron conceived himself. He appeared to me in a puff of titanic smoke and terminator blue lightning and exclaimed to me, “BY THE POWER INVESTED IN MY EQUITY I HAVE ENVISIONED THE NAME CRAIGTIMUS PRIME FOR YOU. EITHER THAT OR CRAIG-O-BOT 2000!” Indeed he is a powerful man.

The Alligator shows no mercy

King James Cameron’s Proclaimation

We have decided that we are going to refer to Craig as Craig2000.  Actually, you know what, it’s going to be Craigator2000!  This is an official proclaimation from the King James Cameron, for he has been the only one to obtain unobtainium… the hardtogetium… the elusivinium… the boardwalkium… the charizardpokemoncardium. Well, you know it.

Lets us explain to you why the King James Cameron has decided to proclaim Craig to be Craigator2000.

It was a calm Sunday afternoon.  The sun was bright but there were some folks inside an apartment looking at computers.

“Join our blog,” said Joe to Craig.

“Sure,” said Craig back to Joe.

So it was settled that Craig would become apart of the team.

The next day Joe set up Craig an account on WordPress.  It was a time of celebration.

Shortly, three or four days later, Craig finally registered his account.  It was another time of celebration.  For you see, our wolf pack had grown by one.

Deep into the night Craig toiled and feverishly crafted his first blog posts.  Little did he know he did not tag nor categorize his post.

“Bah!” he said to such things and with a click of his finger he posted.

Now the story turns down a bleak path.

“You know Craig, we didn’t discuss this earlier, but you need a transformer name to really be a part of the blog.  This will be your final step to obtain the elightenment,” said Joe to Craig.

“Oh,” said Craig.

“Yes. Elekon and I were thinking that you should be Craig2000, you know because you like 2000 so much,” said Joe.

“Oh,” said Craig.

“Yeah, it sounds cool,” said Joe.

“Well you see, I was thinking for along the lines of Craig-tron,” said Craig.

This was the end of that conversation.

The next day Joe attended a Royal Feast with King James Cameron.  They dined on ale and swine.

King James Cameron has a mightly god voice this causes him to whisper into Joe’s ear.

“Yes sire!” exclaimed Joe.

And the meal ended.

And that is how Craig got the name Craigator2000.

People like that don’t die!

As the whole world knows, this past summer has been the summer of the death a tonnes of big celebrities (may they all rest in peace).  And, as the numbers get higher, the more likely it is that these people who died I have known about for a while.  And while it’s been sad and what not, nothing has shocked me more than when Avenged Sevenfold’s drummer The Rev (Jimmy Sullivan) died.

I haven’t listened to them in a long while as they sort of fell short of what I liked, expected, and grew into.  But I spent my preteen angsty years listening to them. Just like I spend my childhood (6-9ish) listening to the Backstreet Boys.  When I outgrew these bands they simply fell to the wayside in my mind and forever that was how they would be.

This destroyed my reality.  Past celebrities do not die. This is exactly how I felt when Billy Mays died.  Who makes a big deal about the death of OxyClean spokeman?! Our generation.

This also dates me, people I grew up listening too from my generation have died.  I am old enough to witness my generations celebrites die.

In short: this is like a Backstreet Boy dying, no one cares anymore about them, but there are childhood fondness that will bubble up if one croaks.

As for Brittany Murphy, may she RIP. Drop Dead Gorgeous and Clueless would have been nothing without you.

On a side note: when I spawn children they are not getting raised by the TV so that they get attached to such things.
