I am overwhelmed at work today. I am behind on some projects because I had to pick up the balls dropped by others and run with them. I was in one conference only to return to a screen full of unread emails and an inquiry as to my lack of immediate response. Because I am unwilling to become a speed freak, my artificial aid to help me crank out work in the afternoon is to listen to Green Day's American Idiot cd, including this song, Jesus of Suburbia. Thanks to Billy Joe and the boys, and I hope my head doesn't explode before I leave the office.

On a similar note, all the male checkers and box boys at my local Ralphs grocery store dress and sport hair like the lead singer of Green Day, so whenever I have a question I just call out: "Hey, Billy Joe - where can I find shelled sunflower seeds?"

Yeah, but do they smash your eggs in the bottom of the bag when you ask them to sing When I Come Around?

It's been a little crazy over here, too. Using Green Day to power through it sounds great!!

Do the bag boys wear mascara and liner too? I always think that looks dorky but Billy Joe is so damn cute he can get away with it.

Green Day does make you move faster and with great vigor. One time I was eating this huge chicken parmigiana hero while the song Letterbomb was playing and it wss only when it ended that I noticed I had eaten the entire sandwich and most of my palm.
