I'm At The Dentist Today

Once again I screwed up the date of my dentists appointment. It is today, it was not yesterday. As such you'll need to wait until tomorrow for my potentially drug induced fun at the dentist. For now though I do actually have a few things for you.

First of all, if you're on Facebook, please do go like the Page I made for Tulips (found HERE). If you happen to be away from that vile place, then worry not. I'll find some way to prostitute you yet my good friends.

Other than that the only thing I really have for you I guess is work stories. I actually thought of a pretty decent idea yesterday that I may put in to fruition as early as today. I could be acting it out right now. Well anyway the plan is this; I take my laptop in to work with me, and I write during my lunch break. As you know my job is voluntary and my boss is pretty chill, I'm sure he'd actually let me sit in there for a bit and write even if I wasn't working between writing. It's a relatively distraction free zone thanks to the lack of internet, and power of headphones, and it means I can be super productive. It's just an idea I was bouncing around in my head, and I'm unsure how likely I am to actually do it but I think it's a pretty decent idea.

It's my nephew's birthday today, or so I'm told. I'm not a bad uncle, I'm just terrible with birthdays and ages. The only birthdays I know are my mums and my bosses. That is genuinely it. My mums is five days before mine, and my bosses is the day before mine. I assure you it's bad memory, not bad...uncling? I'm not sure that's a word.

My boss even said he would buy my book, which was quite nice of him. He even said he actually enjoys working with me, and does like me. I have noticed that the few times I've been in work lately I've actually been more sociable than I ever have been before. I make jokes and interact with most of the staff. I don't like all of them, but we don't really have to get along and there's no way I can really get on with pervy old men anyway. Or the guy I suggested should be on medication.

If you ask me, asking someone if they're on medication, and then suggesting they should be, is about as socially inept as you can get. Other than telling people you actually did that I guess. In my defense A) he probably does need to be on medication, and B) I should probably be on medication too. I don't suffer from insanity though, I enjoy every second of it. I do have a busy day ahead of me though, which should be a mixture of fun, painful, and miserable.

Hopefully it's mostly fun.


  1. Gave you the thumbs up on Facebook Mark. I think most bloggers are socially inept and also intelligent-which is why were here.

    Writing on break at work sounds like an excellent idea.

  2. Hope you enjoy the birthday. They can get crazy haha.
    I don't even know how many nephews/nieces I have, let alone their birthdays.

    That's really nice of your boss.

  3. not on facebook, or i would....you boss actually sounds pretty cool...even with your social faux pas...ha....i write on my lunch break, so i think that is a great idea...

  4. that's nice..

    having an interaction with people is one of my weaknesses..

  5. Sounds like you have a great boss! That's always a great thing to have.

    p.s. I tried to add you through your Twitter link but it doesn't appear to work. If you want I have a Twitter link on my page and I can add you that way.

  6. I'm terrible with birthdays and ages too. Even Miss-matic's, and I've been with her 8 years.

    Ages are the worst things to remember. The moment you think you've got them all figured out, another year has gone by and they're all different again! AAAAGH!

  7. Hopefully your nephew has a great birthday Mark, definitely don't feel bad about not remembering, I'm woeful with dates myself. I also like the idea of a Facebook page for your book, I'm going to drop you a like now mate.

  8. Seemingly I liked you and the book!

  9. Don't feel too badly. If it wasn't for Mrs. Penwasser, I'd NEVER remember my nieces and nephews' birthdays.
    The only reason I remember MINE is that I always schedule a physical on my birthday. And, for men my age, that includes getting up close and personal with your doctor.
    And you NEVER forget that.

  10. "I enjoy every second of it"
    Yup, he's gone made.

    Seems like you'll be going to get some writing done. I'm still at the fucking approximate of 200 God damn words for the log touching thing, and there's a little less than two weeks left. Guh guh guh guh.

  11. That's what I've been trying to do at work. During the night when it's dead I whip out my laptop and try and get some work done.

    Though, my boss isn't around to see that though...

  12. I love these happy posts, even though you have a dentist visit looming.
    I am so glad you are enjoying work. It is such a big part of our day, you need to be happy being there
