Mostly because I've been making a dedicated effort to be a real-live grown-up, and to my surprise, grown-ups are boring.
Not so much to my surprise, I'm not very good at trying to be a grown-up.
I try to do grown up things like buy ONE little cute, office-appropriate Halloween figurine for my desk. Grown-ups can be fun too, I tell myself, grown ups can have this cute little ceramic Daisy Duck dressed in a purple witch outfit on their desk and it's totally okay but still festive. I don't NEED to pull out my cotton spider webs and light up spiders and over do it this year.
But she looked so lonely...
(mostly people got startled and terrified and I really like it)
And then before I knew it I had a blinking light up mini jack-o-lantern, witch-themed window clings, and a giant hanging jack-o-lantern totem pole.
But it was so festive!
Make-up every day. That's something grown-ups do. I will do THAT!
Stuff no one's doing at work that we should probably be doing? I will do those. I will do ALL OF THOSE!!
Especially the facebook and the twitter.
And the browsing around the internets a lot to "look at sample websites" to update ours.
I will clean ALL of the apartment before I have people over. And then I will KEEP it that way!
I'll probably never be a grown-up.
I'm gonna go dig the gold-lame turkey plushy out of my filing cabinet and put it on the chair in my office
