Don’t ever have children: it’s just too damn hard to let them go.
On the other hand, if you get carried away and one thing leads to another and what were you thinking when you drank all that champagne nineteen years ago, you still have your friends. Most of them already went away to college, so now they can stick around with you instead. These people will accept your leftover piles of compulsively-baked cookies, as well as your grief-crazed emails re: Love, Abandonment, and Divorcing God Forever. Instead of calling the mental health professionals they quietly nod and hand over the kleenex.
Like a little Xanax would be such a terrible thing?
And there are crazy-fun blogger friends, too. Laurie over at Punk Rock HR invited me to join her Human Resources Bloggers Network today. Though I nearly broke out in hives at the thought of submitting an application to something, given my pretty much -perfect -record of total rejection, they actually let me in.
Then when I found this video Laurie made and posted there a couple days ago, it totally clinched the deal.
Three cheers as well for David Rendall, who has kicked up the pace at The Freak Factor. I thoroughly approve, even though he clearly stole his entire blog from my own subconscious one night when I was asleep and unable to defend myself. I think we’ve established that I love him too much to sue, however.
Finally, I enjoyed wonderful Marilee Jones flashbacks when I read this recent article in CNN.com about the amazing lies people tell on their resumes. That rascally Marilee Jones! She remains my freaky hero. What ever happened to her after MIT fired her, anyway?
