Good to know that you're not a fan of being tagged. I'll note that for the future.

I love that you listed "peacemaker" under fictional jobs. You are such a cynic!

I also took it that the foods were ones we currently don't eat...eggs and coffee were on my list because I think if I ate them I'd fit in to society better.

One of my jobs was working in the back office of a gynecology clinic.. you better be more specific about "Boob inspector", Chris... because I can tell you from experience they aren't all pretty and young.

Flannery- It's not that I don't like them. Actually, I think they're kind of fun. I was just being a dick, trying to look hip by pretending I was too cool to be tagged.

Amy: Part of my job description would be my discretion to inspect only the boobs I wanted to.

Jen: Based on your performance in the Seinfeld quiz and the fact that you understand that reference, I have a feeling we are pop culture soulmates.

Dear Chris,

I think I worked at that Brookstone just after you quit, if I remember correctly. And, yes, it was a very sucky job. After a couple months I just stopped going in.

Sincerely,
Grant Miller, Esq.

Grant- Frank worked there before you and I. He and I have worked at three of the same places: Dick's Phillips, Brookstone, and TCBY. Brookstone had cool shit to play with, but the management pushed the "hard sell" - not my style. They didn't approve of my laissez-faire attitude. Plus, retail just isn't my bag.

Ok, if you had a really hot naked woman in your bedroom, on your rustic bed, in front of a roaring fireplace, why the teleportation machine?
I know this was a while ago, but I just "happened upon your blog" today.

Chris said...

Amylynn- Welcome! I just noticed yuor comment. You make a good point. Maybe the teleportation machine is in case me and said naked woman wanted to zap down to South America or something. I think it just creates limitless options.
