Random stuff I've been

Oh fine then. Everyone else is doing it. I might as well. I'm sure you're all dying to know this:

7 Things I Have Wanted to Be:

1. Artist
2. Astronaut
3. President
4. Dianne Fossey (before she was shot)
5. Olympic gymnast, figure skater, cyclist, rower (at different points in my life)
6. thin and pretty
7. smarter (normal brain, not Asperger's/face-blind)

7 Things I Have Actually Been

1. Professional cleaner of moldy test-tubes
2. Professional counter of boiled fish larvae
3. Professional rock-shoveller
4. Professional truck-driver
5. Licenced pesticide applicator
6. Substitute teacher
7. Director of Development and Marketing for a professional theatre company

quite the resume, no? And that's less than half my employment history. And I'm not even 30 yet!

What Billy said.

Mr Farty said...

Hey, you made it with rower! Yayyyyyyy!

Chaucer's Bitch said...

Um, not acutally, seeing as how I'm not in the Olympics. Unless you know something i don't???

Lorna said...

Licensed pesticide applicator, eh? I trust that's better than the unlicensed, risky kind...

i think boiled baby fish counter is the most punk-ass, coolest thing that's come up on this meme yet! huzzah!

I think that most women feel a certain amount of sisterhood with Fossey..I mean who among you has not documented the habits of great big hairy bipedal beasts who sit around for 12 hours a day eating and passing gas (in between naps) all the while secretly planning a takeover of the alpha male's harem and territory?

First Nations said...


i like saying that.

I have nothing to add to this post. But Hi yourself! I've been reading your blog for ages, actually, but only recently reared my head. Like the Loch Ness Monster. Rargh!

Chaucer's Bitch said...

wow. sound effects. i managed to inspire a "rargh!" and no less than three "huzzahs!" in one post. well done me.

lorna: not much. the licencing test can be passed by anyone who can spell their name correctly and promise to wear rubber gloves like a good ickle applicator.
