First thing I've got to say is WOW. This guy has his shit together. You know what life is about? Life is about finding the things that you love and doing them as much as possible. How do you do all the things you love as much as possible? Well, you combine them together, that's what you do. At least that's what this guy's plan seems to be:

Do I love jogging? Hell yes I do. Do I love doing real estate deals? You bet your fucking ass. 
Do I love iced, non-fat, soy lattes? I love lattes more than I love real estate and jogging combined!

I spotted this little jewel while I was getting coffee before class. I say spotted, but that's not really the truth. The truth is that I heard this guy way before I ever saw him. He was on his bluetooth talking loudly about the details of a purchase agreement for an office building.

So what? He's just trying to nail down the terms of his business transaction while waiting for his coffee. What's the big fuckin' deal? I'll tell you:

This guy is in Starbucks, talking on the phone to his business partner and waiting for his coffee WHILE JOGGING IN PLACE.

In the words of Jack Donaghy, he's got it all figured out*.

This has been Weirdo Watch.

*Jack: (looking through the blinds in Liz's office) Oh, my. There appears to be a gentleman making passionate, angry love to himself.
Liz: Yeah, I know. That's why I closed the blinds in the first place.
Jack: Right in his office. Huh.
(Turns away). Lemon, I like to think of myself as a winner; I like to surround myself with winners. I see potential in you. Let me be your Jack Welch. Let me be your mentor.
Liz: No, thank you.
Jack: That is unfortunate. (Turns around and looks through blinds again) You've, uh, got to admire his persistence and stamina, though. Am I wrong or is he in the middle of a staff meeting?
Liz: Maybe you should be his mentor.
Jack: Obviously he doesn't need one. He's got it all figured out.


  1. Jack Welsh [sic]? Really Brooks? Is he related to Catherine Zeta-Jones? Does he go to business meetings with Warren Muffett?
