Short on time

This is my new hellish Wednesday routine, gotta split before 6:15. Get home at 7:30 tonight. I know some people thrive on that kind of schedule, I'm more of a resenter when I have to deal with crowded public transportation at such an ungodly hour. This contract goes to mid June. Two months off after that. Two. Months.

Must hoard as much moolah now, so fun can be had.

Let's see, when I'm short on time, I at least owe a pithy comment.

Cheese is just carefully rotted milk.

What? You already knew that? Okay, how about this one?

Skyscrapers are just prisons with great views.

I'm out of here, goodday everyone.

Oh God, now I'm depressed. I love CHEESE. And I work in a skyscraper. Sort of. No, wait, it's just a prison.

I should just go back to bed.

Work. They could at least give it a better sounding name.

I'm a morning person, but your new schedule is insane. Hang in there and think of those two months off.

Kevin said...

FYI - I met someone the other night from Montreal. Looked like you, but a few years older than you in your pic. I would have thought you were related but he is actually from Montreal (i.e. French-Canadian).

I just thought it was amusing.

Now that I type it out ... not so much I guess.

Have a great day! Unless you don't wanna get "judged" by people in authourity, don't stop to help the helpless or comfort the broken. See my blog for details.

Holly said...

damnit, no sharp white cheddar for me today.

you seriously messed up my cracker snack.

St. Dickeybird said...

Wow. That's a long day. But 2 months off sounds worth it. Just remind yourself that it's an investment into your summer.

I'm a night owl

Knock, knock!

Who's there?

Dr

Dr Who!

How old is that un? ;>)

GayProf said...

I am not a morning person, so that sounds painful. Still, two months off sounds great!

Patricia said...

come june i'm thinking i'll truly resent you. i know myself well.

yours is really the best scenario. like eating your least favorite vegetables, knowing that a decadent dessert is in your future.

all i see in my future is lima beans.

In my dungeon of a building - we don't even have windows. Kind of like casinos . You never notice the passing of time.

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

Profound. I never thought of skyscrapers that way.

madamerouge said...

Vomit and some types of cheese (Parmesan, for example) smell the same because they both contain the same chemical: butyric acid. So when you're eating Parmesan, it's like eating puke.

toobusyliving said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again MR, .......you'll eat-out an asshole, but god forbid a caesar salad should pass your lips. OK.

Spider said...

And dogs are just wolves that don't crap in the house... and toobusyliving - I will eat an ass ANY DAY - and refuse to eat a salad - I want lettuce, I will go face down in the front yard with a bottle of salad dressing - same taste!

madamerouge said...

salad: it's what food eats

TBL: stop judging gay sexual love!

madamerouge said...

caesar salad: raw eggs and parmesan cheese. Thanks, but I'll take my chances with a gay guy* anyday.

*one with good personal hygiene, that is

Freak Magnet said...

You've forever changed the way I look at cheese.

*sniff* Thanks a lot.

*sniff* Bastard. I really liked cheese.

toobusyliving said...

Madamerouge does enjoy a slice of American Cheese, from time to time.

madamerouge said...

Sorry freak. btw - love Billy Squier! rock on!

tornwordo said...

Em mentioned to me today that cheese is actually the result of milk digested by organisms, sometimes called putrefaction or rot. This description I found even more vile. Though in all honesty, I'll eat any cheese.

I dare you to try nato! (Rotting soybeans, available at fine Japanese restaurants. The smell is unforgettable.)

Colleen said...

Nato! Have never tried it but you reminded me of The Sneeze's series, "Steve, Don't Eat It!" - hilarious!!

This posting was unsatisfying.
I want my money back.
Especially after reading madamerouge's
puke/parmesan cheese comparison.
I guess I should've stopped
when I saw the RED ALERT pic.

David in KC said...

I remember rotting bean curd well. I grew up in Taiwan - there it was called "cho tofu" - stinky bean curd. The smell was beyond description.

Two questions:

1. When visiting Montreal two years ago, I noticed that French speakers replied "no problem" when I asked for something. When talking to other French speakers, do they say "pas de probleme"?

2. Why are there so many beggars in Montreal? For some reason I assumed that the Canadian social safety net would take care of them. Maybe they're just being entrepreneurial.

madamerouge said...

Torn, I'm gonna veto the natto. And btw, you'll be the start of my Thursday post.

Colleen: I cannot stop laughing after visiting that guy's site. Thanks!

t: sorry dude

freak magnet; everyone else: come on over to my house. We'll have some brie, camembert, havarti, MILD cheddar, and a few bottles of wine. We will not invite the stinky cheese (or people).

The Wisdom of Wislon said...

all this talk of whiffy foods is gonna make me hurl ;>)

So what do we have in store for your Thursday pic sensation????

t said...

Wislon, lets see...
we're talking about vomit, tornwordo has a new cellphone that does video and he's understandably cranky due to giving up cigarettes.

What will he have in store for his Thursday pic?

I fear the worst.....

Jason said...

2 months off for the summer sounds amazing. I am totally jealous.

toobusyliving said...

Jimmy had two months off last summer, so he shouldn't bee too jealous.

Tell me what ya think:

New Blog Theme Day

My idea - Childhood Trauma Tuesday. Everyone can participate, and, unlike that night in grade 5 with the poorly chosen babysitter, you get to keep all of your clothes on. Spread the word and let me know.
