everybody’s hustlin’ just to have a little scene
This wasn’t the winning entry in Project Rooftop’s Superman: Man of Style contest, but it’s my favorite by Kyle Latino. Love the aviator jacket and scarf on a flying hero. Also fun is this entry by Charles R. Rouse-Rodriguez. Superman isn’t exactly a technology/science hero, but his details are flawless, “Why does Superman need a jetpack if he can fly? — Because it’s badass, that’s why!” There are some fun steampunk and silly Superman designs as well. The posts at Project Rooftop aren’t constant, but I always love them.
At the office today I’ve realized that “I’m not here to make friends,” is a good mantra and it’s suiting me well. I’m not mean or nasty, just present. I do my tasks, eat my lunch, surf a little and head home. My good co-worker friends are either in the office very infrequently, or don’t sit near enough to really socialize (which is a good thing since we’re here to work) and that’s fine. I can socialize in my off-hours, which is something else I need to work on, but one thing at a time.
This morning it also really hit me that I really miss league bowling. I left my last league out of support for a friend that said he’d find us another league to bowl in. That never happened and I haven’t really seen that friend in ages anyway, so I wonder if I should look for one that has in-DC carpools available. Why can’t any of the bowling chains find a good spot in DC to build a real alley. To quote an entitled gentrifier, “We really need” a bowling alley! 😛
