I am, however, ridiculously boring.
You see, the last couple of weeks in which I have been conspicuously silent I’ve been in crunch mode at work. For those of you who mercifully aren’t aware of this term, it basically means that I work a helluva lot, and not a lot else. As you might be able to guess, this doesn’t exactly make for invigorating blog reading. Allow me to give you a sample:
I woke up this morning and it was dark.
And cold. But mainly dark. I walk out the door at 7:30am. I get to work at 9 and begin my work for the day. At midday I had lunch but the rain meant I had to have nearby subway. I go back to work until 8pm. I get home at 9:30. I eat, watch some TV, and then go to sleep.
Repeat this with slight variations for the last 2-3 weeks. I can’t really complain too much since in the industry I’m in this really comes with the territory, but adding the travel and the fact it’s getting cold on top of that it gets a bit tiresome. I can hack it for the couple of months left on my contract though I reckon.
On a lighter note, do any of you remember back to when Cal and I were in Thailand and we had a code for all the gross men with young Thai women? Well Cal and I have another code which she may not have shared with you out there in internet land yet. The code is “Phil stayed home and played xbox”. At first glance you could take this to mean that while Cal was out I stayed at home and played computer games. BUT NO! You are mistaken! Thank god youï¿½re not involved in the justice system! “Phil stayed home and played xbox” actually means “Phil accompanied me on this fine excursion and we had a wonderful time! If I don’t mention him again it’s because he was so awesome nothing could possibly compare.” Please try and keep this in mind if it is ever used again.
So, rather than once again reciting the exciting escapades that Cal and I have been up to, I thought I’d share something that has been weighing on my mind a lot recently. Does anyone else think that these raccoons look like they’re recreating the landing on Iwa Jima? It truly is a question for the ages.
I’m rac-ing my brains to think of a good pun to go here
And the original
And finally, while I’m here, big ups to my Grandma who Iï¿½m told isn’t feeling too well back home. I hope you feel better soon – and if you don’t you’ll have to deal with me. (I know I can’t really back this up with anything seeing as weï¿½re on opposite sides of the planet at all, but I’m damned if it doesn’t make me feel cool ordering my grandma around). Get well soon Nan. <3
