I have an hour left at work and nothing to do. I just finished another book, a delightfully girly summer read, Such a Pretty Fat. (Is it sad that I’m too lazy to italicize it like good writing dictates?) At first I wasn’t sure if I’d like it, whether she’d be annoying or amusing, but she was neither. Actually she was HILARIOUS. (Not too lazy to caps, points for me!) It’s a memoir by Jen Lancaster chronicling her efforts to lose weight and I knew that I liked her the moment she used the word “asshat.” I seriously thought Ryan was the only person who used that term but I have been proven otherwise. She’s quick and witty and her sense of humor is similar to mine. A moment I loved was one of her responses to the old skinny-bitch insult, You have such a pretty face, it’s a shame you’re fat: “You have such a pretty face it’s a shame you’re such a whore.” XD There’s many more hilarious moments. I checked out her blog which is pretty entertaining as well.
But the point is, I’m done with the book and still have an hour left of work. (I think I’ll read Brideshead Revisited next since they’re making a movie and all.) No one is calling which I have no problem with. I’d sooner watch the minutes pass agonizingly slow like they like to do than get bitched at by angry customers…Ah, just talked to Ryan on the phone and killed 15 minutes and got interrupted by a flurry of phone calls that took up another 15. Approximately 26 minutes til I can leave. 25. I have a lot of financial stuff about school to deal with. Oh, also I got stuck with the 8-meal per week meal plan because I missed the deadline so now I have to cook my other meals since my meal money will probably run out really fast. Or I could hoard food, or not eat 6 servings in one sitting (ahem, Goldfish crackers, my kryptonite).
Also, I’ve recently restarted to contemplate whether or not I’m an interesting person, which is the fastest way to convince yourself you’re about as interesting as nail clippings. I need to cook again, something new to get out this funk. On the bright side I feel like writing again. (Oh god 15 more minutes!) I do have things I can write about, especially my culture, which I should start doing since it’s the theme of this blog. I think my new inspiration to write has been reading a couple of books that were so informal that I figured, Hey, I could do this. And people might read it too. Besides, if I want to get into one of the publications at school I need practice. I’ve got time now, might as well utilize it. 3 minutes til I leave so time to wrap up. Yes!
