Extreme Sloth and Technicolor Snot
Progress at the New Digs is at a standstill. Today I realized that I haven't picked up a paintbrush in weeks. I have to say I don't miss it. I do miss the buzz from the Kilz Primer a little. Blowing technicolor snot for days after using the spray gun, I would just as soon forget. Basically, I have been sitting around like the big old Buffy Butterballbutt that I am, waiting for the spirit to move me. So far the spirit has not moved me past the freezer where the Ben and Jerry's is stored.
My office, the office that was one of the major reasons I chose the New Digs as the new T.E.A. World Headquarters, is still a blank canvas. I managed to install the "Frames" wallpaper (Which was a sight to behold) but that's it. Reality TV called and I answered. Who needs a home office anyway? I don't like to work. Work takes effort. Ice cream does not require effort. You don't even have to chew.
This is the only room that is done. Not done well, but done for now. Good enough. The best I could do considering my bad attitude and apparent vitamin deficiency.
I have decided that starting tomorrow I will stock up on Geritol. I will change my attitude. I will climb back on the ladder with a paintbrush in my hand. There may be a pint of Chunky Monkey in the other but, hey, change takes time. When the dust settles, when the technicolor snot is just a faded memory, the executive office at T.E.A World headquarters will be transformed.
With any luck it will bear some resemblance to any or all of these photos of fabulous spaces. (Which I think came from Domino but I am not sure-Sorry, Sorry, Sorry)
All of this talk about work is exhausting. I am taking an ice cream break while I watch Project Runway. On the off chance that I get off my ass and actually do something. If perhaps I can tear myself away from the television long enough to go to the Home Depot. When (If ever) there is progress. I will report back. All I need now is a little good luck and no brain freezes.
