You Caught Me On A Down Cycle

Last night we had a release night at work. Matt was working the “A-Shift” as we call it. I had gone to the Sonics and Rockets game, but afterwards I decided to drop by and see how things were going with the release. One hour turned into two and, before I knew it I spent the whole night there with everyone else that was working.

It is easy to get bored sitting around a conference room all night waiting just in case something goes wrong. So of course, Matt and I were exercising our “J Finger” in Google Reader. Matt pulled up a post on Lifehacker about some kind of vertical wall-mounted planter for plants. The following inadvertently funny sequence followed:

Matt: This is cool. I’d love to get one of these. If only I lived in a place that got enough sunlight to keep a plant alive.
Armen: What are you saying man? I have a plant at my place and it’s fine.
Matt: Dude, I’ve seen your plant and it’s not fine.
Armen: Whatever man, you caught it on a down cycle.

Well, he did. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Anyway, I suppose it’s only fair to show a picture of how my plant’s doing right now…


Oh and I’d say it’s about mid cycle right now. 🙂

P.S. Thanks to my Mom who gave the plant to me as a birthday gift a couple years back.

    Um, judging by the dead looking leaf tips, I’d say it needs water.

    But then again, i shouldn’t be one to talk since I managed to kill my ivy plant. 🙂

    Yeah it gets water. You just can’t spoil them you know? Otherwise when they grow up they don’t understand that water doesn’t grow on trees. Um. Yeah 🙂
