The only thing that could have made it worse would have been a loaf of bread (my kryptonite) and a pair of socks


I started my internship on Thursday. I have my own desk. I've never had my own desk before, I was starting to feel all grown up with my own computer and my own chair and my own little cubicle, and then I looked to my right and there it was. I was face to face with it. It stared at me and I, well, I cowered in my shoesies. My nemesis: the phone.

So, I am still on the dating site, Mr. Slurpee and I aren't exclusive, and the real fear is I'd lose my nerve and never go on again if I signed off. The newest guy who has been talking to me used this line when he found out I wanted to be a science writer: "So, what would you write about the chemistry between us?" It's hard not to be both a little disturbed and also amused by that line.

Happy weekend...What are your plans? Can I live vicariously through you? Please?

'cause I'll be here, writing an essay.


  1. Hahaha... I felt exactly the same way on my first internship day.
    And guess what? I got the angriest person ever on the phone that day. Lucky me!

    I have no idea what I'm going to do this weekend.

    Have a nice weekend!

  2. You brave woman. I'll have to use the phone on Monday. No one is going to enjoy it. Well, have a good one (weekend that is).

  3. HAHAHAHA! This had me cracking UP! I work for a call CENTER. All I do is talk on phones all day. Too funny, D.

    (As you can tell, my comments are going backwards in time, almost like a time warp, really. A bloggy walkman in reverse, if you will. Enjoy! (or not))

  4. Oh, Burn, I *always* enjoy your comments! You're a brave man with the phone. seriously, there a voice at the other end which may (or may not) have a body attached, how do you manage it?
