At last

Wouldn’t it be hilarious if I called in sick to my old job right now?


So, here I am. Day one of being unemployed. If anyone DOES send me work today, I won’t get it until at least 11:00, because that’s 8:00 in Los Angeles. So, sigh.


The first thing that happened was I heard Marvin getting ready, which usually means my alarm will go off any second, but today I burrowed further into the blankets and Tallulah flapped her lips across my calf a little more and we both went, “Hmmmmmmmmmmm.”


Then I slept in…till 7:30! I know, right!?


After I got up from that long sleep, I shot off a terse email to ITT Tech. First of all, how much do you want to bet that one of the Ts in ITT already stands for “tech”? It’s probably the Institute of Technological Technology Tech, right? But that is not why I wrote them. I WROTE them because I saw a commercial this weekend where one of their graduates says “theirselves.”


Theirselves!


They are an EDUCATIONAL institution and they have someone saying THEIRSELVES in their ad?


You can imagine how this set me off.


You know I never hear from any of these companies that I email. They just see a bitter old school marm somewhere alone with 17 cats. In other words, they totally picture me. And they do not take me seriously. I DID hear from the Vermont Country Store when I wrote them because they said they were open “everyday.”


Yes, I did tell them “I wear my everyday clothes every day.” When DON’T I say that?


Anyway, they wrote me back and for that I will be forever grateful. They have not changed that “everyday,” however.


My other big plan for today is to do something with our new shelf in the bathroom. It is called an etagere, and do Marvin and I go to great lengths to mispronounce it at all? The “ate a girl,” the “Etta James,” the “Edmund Fitzgerald.” Who needs a hobby? Is it Marvin and me?


Anyway, here is what Marvin did to the shelf so far.


Etta 
Yeah, hi. When they call it the library, they don’t really mean it, Marvin. Plus, are we going to plant geraniums?


Shelf Fortunately, I have this ridiculous shelf of stuff that I can transfer to the edamame shelf. I was thinking I could just put pretty things in the shelf. Like that attractive bottle of eyeglass cleaner.


The Polydent is to clean my sexy night guard. I know someone’s gonna stare at all this stuff and ask. I remember when I showed you my fridge.


Anyway, that’s what I’ve got planned for today. Yoga is on FitTV at 8:30, so namaste.

  2. Tiffaney,
    As you know, Target.com carries more items on line than we carry in the store. Sometimes, the exact item you were looking for (as it is a conspiracy) will be discontinued in the store, but will continue to be available on line. Therefore, we clearance it out in the store to get rid of it and make room for whatever exciting new item is taking its place.
    The other possible explanation, is that somebody effffed up.

  3. Marvin decorating reminds me of the time I came home from shopping and my shelf I had left empty in my living room was decorated with soup cans. My husband couldn’t stand that I had left it empty for a few days while I was redecorating.

  4. Good Lord people, you all are so utterly obsessed with June’s stuff. What is the deal? Atleast with the doggie cam there were living, breathing things to stare at all day. But WHO CARES about June’s crap, and the “pink thingies” on top of her eatachair? They are CANDLES! Geez Louise.

  5. Thanks, Steve, for the explanation as well as the great tip that Goodwill receives all the final clearance items.
    May the force be with you on Black Friday!

  7. Goodwill? Memphis is under the gun tonight because City employee uniforms showed up there. Wait for it—turned in by the City of Memphis! So, June, you could fake being a city employee if you can find the right Goodwill and make extra cash. I doubt they do that crap at Tarjay.

  10. We had an etagere (french for “over the terlet”) in out bathroom when I was growing up. Yours is much nicer and also classier as there is no visable enema bag. Hmm, it’s not on the shelf either. You must store yours somewhere else….

  11. June, as I’m sure you must be aware given your crazed-fan-information-pipeline, but Barry Gibb will be on Dancing with the Stars this evening. If I had your phone number I would have called immediately last night when they announced it, but alas, you have stalkers 🙂

  12. Now that you’ve quit your job, I guess you’re going to sleep in every morning and skip the early blog post. I read your blog every morning and this morning I go there and what do I find? Yesterday’s blog! What’s up with that? JK, of course. It’s a freak of nature that I’m up this early – I usually read you about 10:00 am. Sleep in and enjoy!

  13. I am not into that FitTV yoga – yoga should not be interrupted every 10 minutes so I can be sold Special K cereal or whatever.
    Anyway, what else was I going say… damn in…
