Blonde Joke

I urgently needed a few days off work, but I knew the Boss would not allow me to take leave . I thought that maybe if I acted “CRAZY” then he would tell me to take a few days off.

So I hung upside down on the ceiling and made funny noises. My co-worker (who’s blond) asked me what I was doing. I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb so that the Boss would think I was “CRAZY” and give me a few days off.

A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked “What are you doing?” I told him I was a light bulb.

He said, “You are clearly stressed out. Go home and recuperate for a couple of days.” I jumped down and walked out of the office.

When my co-worker (the blonde) followed me, the Boss asked her “…And where do you think you’re going?”

(You’re gonna love this…..)

She said, “I’m going home too, I can’t work in the dark.”

Bug

I am not a chick flick person. Though I like the odd romantic comedy, it is definitely not the isle in the video shop where I like to browse most, neither will the comedy previews in the cinema intrigue me much. I love mysteries though, suspense thriller, and … horror films.

Have you seen the exorcist yet? Well, the producers thereof are bringing out another movie – Bug (Bug movie). Have you heard of it yet? Up till now I have not, but the posters seem promising. I know that doesn’t say much always, but I am really excited about it! Every now and again a movie like this hits the big screen, and I just have to watch it. It doesn’t happen very often though, so I really hope that this one is worth it!

If you do not trust the posters, have a look at the preview on You-tube! Its only 1:18min, and well worth the watch!! If you really feel like snooping, check out their website


Its said to be launching on the 25th of May, 2007, but I suppose it will still take a while longer to arrive in South Africa – we are always behind on movies :(

If you see it before me, please let me know what you think, else I will let you know what I think of it :)

What Do Keep In Your Drawer?

Today someone mentioned the fact that all of us buy some sort of junk. Not always things that we can’t use. Just things that we don’t use. Those things that you think look interesting, and in the 5 minutes you spend looking at it on the shelf you’re convinced that you cannot live without this item for another day. Its really weird how we lie to ourselves like that! In a desperate attempt to quiet our conscience about the money we’re about the spend.Shopping Fetish!

When you get home (or sometimes even in the car), you open this newly found treasure. You sniff it, try it on, and love it to bits for those first few minutes, and sometimes even days! But there comes a time when you wonder to yourself, “what the hell was I thinking when I bought this?”.

For me those things that go in a drawer is any cosmetic thing. Whether it be a new sort of loofah, sponge, cute make up brushes, make up remover, facial scrub, mousse foundation – you name it – I buy it. I love new fragrances and texture, and feeling what it does to my skin.

The person I mentioned previously collects gadgets like that. Anything which sounds as if it could save you time. Whether it be juicers, popcorn makers, and heaven alone know what else.

It was then that I realized that most of us has a “fetish” like that. The inconsolable urge to buy something we don’t really need. What is it that you buy and end up putting away in a drawer, cupboard, or even the garage?

Yeah, I know, dumb title, but who cares? :P
Its time for bed, and I’m fussing with all kinds of things. First I got an app on my phone to do VOIP. I then got Twitter to work from my phone, just had to figure it out though. And now I’m posting to WordPress from my phone! Cool hey? I’m now fully mobile!!

I really need to go to bed now. Can’t stop yawning. Night for now
