a day in the life of me

you're sitting on the couch with your laptop and you realise you need to go to the bathroom but you're too lazy to walk all that way so you ignore it until you really really have to go. of course once you're there you're glad you took the effort.

you catch a glimpse of your face in the mirror and you go awww how cute. then you look closer and realise you now have a moustache. you also discover a strange bump on your face that wasn't there this morning. on your way out you open the storage closet that you have now made your personal shoe alter and you're suddenly very happy. you wish you'd thought of this earlier. [really traditional shoe stands are boring, shoes need to be on display]

you finally get yourself to exit the bathroom but you decide since you're already walking about you might as well find yourself a snack. you scope the kitchen for an exciting mid afternoon snack but you're disappointed to find theres nothing remotely exciting in sight. you dream of eating an alugadde bonda with some spicy chutney. you realise you don't get those where you live. you feel sad for yourself and decide to make some hot chocolate. its this new cadbury hot cocoa you found at the indian store. it says 'made in india' on the cover so it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.

you walk back to the couch and flip through the important channels. you're proud of yourself for having memorized all the numbers in such a short time. you think of the good old days when you had directv. you realise thinking about it will not help you get over it. you proceed to watch lewis black do his stand up routine. he's funny and you laugh at all his jokes even though you've seen this recording many times before. you then go back to reading about strange people's lives on the internet until its time to pee again.



will someone please give me a job?


i'm a fabulous employee. really. i will dress professionally. i will be on time ... most days, fine at least twice a week. i will bring joy and humour to the office. if you ever need someone to do a starbucks run at any time of the day i will volunteer. ask brittany, ask gabby. are you two reading this? do u miss your old co worker? tell them how fabulous i was. tell them!

dont ask me why but I just imagined what would happen if you said the things in the last paragraph to someone like Miranda Priestly (Devil wears Prada fame) - me thinks you won't live to tell the tale.. ;-)

p.s: yep, my mind thinks in strange directions.. maybe it was the mention of Starbucks that did it :-)

Prototype no. 89 said...

Why dont you incorporate 'Adsense' into ur blog and make some money? you will find it on ur dashboard page, when log into blogger and blogging could turn out to be your job. thought the dressing up issue wont be present and being late is never a porblem.
