please don't...

it's really annoying when people at work schedule meetings for 9am. no one is here at 9am. and when i do get here at 9.05am i just want to eat my soy yogurt with ginger granola and finish my coffee in peace while i catch up on internet happenings- no questions, no fresh-squeezed corpricana chatter... just the usual website visits followed by the now customary blog post du jour.

unless there's a 9am meeting. in which case i have to drop my bag, hold off on food and go roll my eyes in the conference room with an exploding bladder for an hour.

so now it's nearly noon and i'm just getting around to starting my day (aka starting my romp around the internet until lunch)

signing into hotmail today i noticed a link to this article on msn about how to look rich while living cheaply- i'm more of the look tired and disheveled while living poor but overall happy and eating well crowd, but hey... i couldn't resist the urge to give it a quick read in the hopes i'd find something bloggable hidden away-

while it was predictably pathetic, i must say (insert sarcasm HERE) thank god john and i are taking tomorrow off so we can address handy hint number 5: Purge the Poverty from Our Lives... maybe i'm just spending way too much time at school picking all kinds of things apart at the moment, but that phrase really jumped out at me. whatever pseudorichbitch wrote the article considers a carpet stain or a squeaky door to be ways we've allowed poverty to creep into our homes (no joke- it's in the article). i simply had no idea we were living in a guadalajara open sewer all this time- the filth, the flies... thank you thank you thank you so much msn!- i can't wait to go home tomorrow and bust out the poverty-be-gone spray and spritz our house into the veritable immaculate conception it's meant to be.

purge the poverty? not sure i like those two words used together- something just doesn't sit right.

i dunno- maybe i'm crazy. see how a 9am meeting totally fucks with my day?

i scanned this msn article you speak of... and i got down to the point where my eyes caught on the words "hobnob" and "liza minelli". whose nob? and what about liza minelli?

g said...

she speaks! :)

hobnobs- aren't they a little something edible created by that fine temptress of b-grade baked goods little debbie?

ok so i decided to go back and read this entire article-big mistake. the last paragraph REALLY pissed me off. what a fuckin bitch. i cannot believe that one of her helpful hints was not to have kids and the way it was worded was completely tasteless and what a dumbbitch. i hope to hell that someone has removed her ovaries.

ovaries do make nice stocking stuffers...
