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.”
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.
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.
