Why Does It Always Rain On Me

April 1, 2009

This morning I had two choices.

1. Catch that train, and not find my umbrella. (Thought process: It’s raining outside, but it’s sure to stop by the time I get to work. It’s a full city block walk to the work building from where the bus drops me off, but I’m a good person – I deserve to get a break today! Right?)

2. Find the umbrella and miss my train, putting into jeopardy the carefully timed dash to the train, then dash to the bus, then dash to the work building from the other side of the business park. (Thought process: I hate missing the fast train! I don’t want to get the next train, it’s always full of smelly and annoying people and I never get a seat!)

I picked number 1, of course. Then the train was late so I would in fact have caught the fast train anyway if I had stopped to get the umbrella. Then when I got off the bus? It wasn’t just raining cats and dogs, it was hailing taxis. I was so drenched by the time I got to my desk that I wrung water out of my hair and clothes as if I were freshly out of a shower that I’d taken and forgotten to take my clothes off for first. (Thought process: It’s pretty empty in my office area. Surely if I take my pants off to dry nobody would even notice? heh. I restrained myself from doing that.)

Now I’ve worked out why this happened. It is because I am greedy and lustful.

Greed: Very High
Gluttony: High
Wrath: Medium
Sloth: High
Envy: Medium
Lust: Very High
Pride: Medium

I Stole This!

November 20, 2008

I totally stole this idea from Oral Hygiene Queen.

WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (mother’s & father’s middle names)
William. (My mum does not have a middle name. I am suddenly very suspicious of that character in the Black Eyed Peas, and suspect he is really in the Witness Protection Scheme, and he too has a mum with no middle name.)

NASCAR NAME: (first name of your mother’s dad, father’s dad )
Frank Robert (this will involve surgery, no?)

STAR WARS NAME: (the first 2 letters of your last name, first 4 letters of your first name)
Heaman (I always knew I should have been a superhero)

DETECTIVE NAME: (fav color, fav city)
Blue Sydney (These categories are all screwy. Surely this is a good porn name?)

SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, most elegant-sounding city you’ve lived in)
Kathryn Sydney (Blue’s sister – also in entertainment. Hey, I don’t get out much, ok? And Sydney is too elegant. Phhhhft.)

SUPERHERO NAME: (2nd fav color, fav alcoholic drink, add “THE” to
the beginning)
The Green Beer (HA! I think I’ve had one of these on St Patrick’s Day! My Star Wars name worked better.)

GANGSTA NAME: (fav ice cream flavor, fav cookie):
Honey Malt Marbles Macadamia White Chocolate Chip (I would have to be VERY tough to get away with this gangsta name. I’m dead for sure.)

ROCK STAR NAME: (current pet’s name, current street name)
Ned Not-Telling (That totally works even though I cheated!)

PORN NAME: (1st pet, street you grew up on)
Minty Fitzroy (Technically I should have picked a different street but this one was also in my childhood and less… original sounding – thus more anonymous.)
