Too Busy To Work

Holy Shit, I've been slammed over the last few days.
You ask: Can you even be slammed when you're out of work?
Well, over the last week I've applied for a passport (after a 3 day hunt for a copy of my birth certificate - see: following item), re-organized my office and weeded through over 100 stuffed file folders, installed and set-up my new HDTV (via Woot), planted a tree, switched out my old CD burner for one that works, patched a ceiling leak in the basement, ripped out the mildew-infested shower doors from the upstairs bathroom and re-finished the whole shebang (caulkin' galore), replaced the old terlet lid with a fancy wood one, transferred a load of my old VHS tapes to DVD, and read a 300 page document on telecommunications law (in anticipation of the new job). That doesn't even take into account all of my cooking, cleaning, shoveling, and yard work (or the unending trips to Home Depot, Ikea, Target, Staples, etc.).
Shit, I hope that the new job starts soon - This unemployment nonsense is fucking exhausting.

You're doing this all wrong! You're supposed to be unshaven, drunk and on the sofa in your boxers watching a COPS! marathon!

Or be drunk, unshaven, in your boxers, and featured on a Cops marathon.

Wait, wait, wait...

...planted a tree?

What are you, DC Appleseed now?

DC Liar said...

Long story short = Rats borrowed into the rosebushes in front of our house.

On one of the 60 degree days (between snowstorms) I razed the lair, flooded the soil, laid down some topsoil, planted a tree to fill the space, and threw down some grass seed to top it all off.
The Girl helped by fetching items throughout the procedure - Drinky Joe helped by sleeping all day and staying the hell out of my way.

I don't see anything about disinfecting the sofa on that list.

DC Liar said...

At this point, the only thing that would disinfect the sofa is fire (and lots of it).

Fuck edp. You beat me to it….

The first thing I thought when reading that was…

Planted a tree? What the hell! First he taking pictures of fucking posies and now he’s gone all hippie and planting fucking trees.

Everything else made sense. You might as well have thrown in toss a dwarf. That would have made more sense. Or at least I could picture…..

Tossing the dego and maybe you can just say you just tossed a dwarf and disinfected the sofa.

Chris B. said...

Is "tossed the dwarf" code for something? Wait -- I don't want to know.

Meat Head said...

No I am just going to hell and laugh at little people.
