13-year old Talent

I was going through some of my old stuff from middle school to make myself more grateful about how I never have to go through that time in my life again. And I found these old cartoon blocks that I made in seventh-grade on our home computer using window's paint. I used to really want to be a cartoonist until I learned that the majority of them end up homeless, so I took up art instead, go figure -I don't know. More artist are homeless than cartoonists, if they are even different categories. Anyway- having used Windows Paint recently after being used to the Adobe Suite, I have to say- I'm impressed with my 13-year old talent to manipulate that mouse!

Top 10 Things I do on a Slow Work Day

10) Switch back and forth between work email and personal email, desperately hoping for a message of any kind and getting more and more depressed when nothing shows up.
9) Instant-Messaging Rachel with short repeated words at rapid-fire speed so that she will eventually hear her computer beeping as if its about to blow up and answer me.
8) Page the part-timer's office and then hang up on them after they answer, repeatedly.
7) Check every type of account I possibly have online (bank account, phone account, facebook account, rocky mountain power account, etc. etc. etc.)
6) Eat candy out of the bowl that sits directly in front of me, constantly brimming with every kind of candy bar.
5) Check my cell phone for any calls/texts and when there isn't anything, scroll down my list of contacts trying to find anyone I can possibly come up with an excuse to text a message to so that they'll return one to me. Then eat some more candy.
4) Go to the bathroom and take an extra long time washing my hands and fixing my hair and then slowly pulling out sheets of paper towels and letting my hands drip dry over them.
3) Sit in the part-timer's office and ask them how its going but don't respond when they answer so that they'll feel the need to keep explaining themselves.
2) Windex the desk, sanitize the phone and keyboard and mouse while eating more candy.
1) Make a blog post.

The Gallery

Wow, 4 posts in a week! I'm on a serious roll! This is where I work, but someone told me I can't put the name of it because then I'll get all of these crazy stalkers and get murdered or something. Anyway, I love my job! There are 6 of us: 2 owners, me, 2 part-timers, and an intern. I'm supposed to supervise the pt-ers and the intern but in all reality it's a team effort to supervise the owners.

This is a shot of one of the famous dog parties that they have once a month here. My boss love his dogs. Rory got promptly kicked out when she tried to join because she's a mud-blood and "made the others nervous."
