What do you mean, where the hell have I been?? I asked you first!! PLUS, don't think I didn't notice that not a damn one of you chipped in and wrote this blog while I was out making the world safe for democracy (or watching all the TV I missed the entire year I was in Sudan...either way...) NONE of you bothered to help me out!
Helpful hint: Do you see what I did there?? I began with an accusation. You see...I find that if you just walk in and start yelling and throwing out random accusations, people forget to ask me to explain myself. Honestly, there's usually no explanation. Trust me. It's just better this way.
So, it seems it is now July. July 4th to be exact. There is something about that date that I was supposed to remember...it's killing me. Sounds sooo familiar. Nevermind. I'm sure it will come to me.
Anyway, I've started back to work after my vacation and I am actively making sure that freedom rings in this Kick-ass country....America, in case you were confused and thought maybe I liked your particular country that is not America. I don't. Your country honks. Don't ask me to explain. If you don't know...I am certainly not going to tell you...
How do I do this you ask?? What is my contribution??
Apparently, I ensure that the precise gift that would be given by our fearless leaders to other (but likely more fearful) world leaders is PERFECT. I continue to bolster the foundations of democracy so that it remains strong, apparently by ensuring that the appropriate gift wrap is used (Presidents don't like flowers or kittens) and that (**gasp**) no damn tape is showing. (Obviously, the feds have never sent anyone to inspect the shit under my Christmas tree -- because I'm SERIOUSLY not qualified for that!) Since I have returned, the focus of my life seems to be ensuring that random members of the world's monarchy are given a gift that is meaningful, but with no tacky scotch tape showing. (Nothing says third world trailer park like tape just slapped on the outside of a present...)
Ridiculous, right?? EXACTLY! That is what I thought too...however, apparently the State Department does not appreciate my opinions.
I guess I have also done some other things since I returned. But I forget them now.
And, they totally make me pretend to work here for the entire day too! Which, frankly, is shocking! For some reason, I had this vision of living in the USA as a utopia, where people don't actually care if I come to work, but would just pay me and be happy that I was back home.
WTF America?? Land of the free my ass! Since I've been back, I've been charged for EVERYTHING. In fact, that foreign lady in the cafeteria charged me 10 cents for a stupid cup of ice. (I officially hate that lady and her ice-nazi ways!)
The real issue here is obvious though. Josh won't let me be me...and the only way I can really be me, is if I didn't have to go to work and pretend to be that other me, the one who lied on her resume to get the job in the first place -- I mean seriously, I don't have any hobbies or outside interests!!! Why the hell would anyone believe I was a "soccer" and/or "martial arts" enthusiast?!? If they fell for that, they're just dumb.
Suckahs!!! I'm a federal "worker." Clearly, God is teaching them a lesson right now...
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
