Soon I will be able to say TGIF and have it mean something. When you don’t really have stuff to make the days overly meaningful, one day runs right into the next. The holidays came and went and it just wasn’t as much fun as it is when you’re at work and people help you get into the celebratory mood. I love my cats but they suck at holiday festivities.
So, in case you don’t know, I am going back to working full time for a myriad of reasons – boredom is the biggest reason followed by need to stop incessant eating as a result of said boredom, need to feel less isolated and of course, contributing to the household income fund. Clearly that last reason isn’t the main impetus since I’m getting about half what I was getting at the other place of employ. However, I am stepping out of the financial services field and have to take the commensurate income hit. (sigh) Oh well. I will continue to move my healing practice forward. Newsletter comes out this month (thanks to my coach for pushing me)! Email me if you want to take a peek at it.
Here’s something that is sad but true … (From Puffy McMoonface’s press conference):
Reporter: The President’s speech today at the Pentagon as far as terrorism and fighting terrorism is concerned, do you think that Osama bin Laden is still in — is running the al Qaeda business?
MR. McCLELLAN: I’m sorry, who?
Reporter: Osama bin Laden. And where he is now? He is in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq or Iran? Where —
MR. McCLELLAN: Well, if we knew exactly where he was, we would go and bring him to justice. He is someone we continue to pursue. We are making great progress on the war on terrorism.
You can’t make this shit up.
Speaking of Puffy, there’s a guy on Kos by the username of KarateExplosions who posts the most hilarious spoofs of Puffy’s daily press conferences. They are a bit long but totally worth reading. Here’s the latest one: The Scotty Show
He posts them to his blog as well.
A sample (note: reporter comments in italics, Puffy’s retort in bold and real meaning in regular typeface
I didn’t say they did —
Well, your implication is certainly that.
I am through debating you on what you said. Instead, I shall now take issue with what you meant.
In this case, there have been several —
That’s your implication. No, that’s your implication.
I’m sorry, but I feel it is in my best interest at this point to act indignant and interrupt any time you try to complete a sentence. Whenever you complete a sentence, I go to my unhappy place.
You have to read them to really get the gist of it all. This guy is hilarious!
Oh yeah, and this is pretty much accurate, innit?
You Are Likely an Only Child
At your darkest moments, you feel frustrated.
At work and school, you do best when you’re organizing.
When you love someone, you tend to worry about them.
In friendship, you are emotional and sympathetic.
