Whaddya mean it's Sunday already?

It's Sunday already? Where did the time go?

Today I watched / saw glimpses of the following on TV in a desperate attempt to avoid doing chores:
  • The King and I, "getting to know you, getting to know every thing about you, rummage through your dustbins, creeping 'round your house at night ..."
  • A straight-to-TV film about genius babies, if babies really are such geniuses why can't they exercise bowel control?
  • Little Nicky, although Reese Whitherspoon was funny as an angel, "I so had to save his life back there"
  • The Politics Show, which has the comfort of a facade of intellectualism, but anyone with any intelligence would avoid politics
  • Ten minutes of Stargate, only ten, no chore is really that bad
Also released some code for some system, got it wrong, monitoring went ballistic and paged my manager fifty times. Is there no end to my competence?

In these moods I sob to myself "no-one will notice when I die", which always perks me up since I consider an anonymous death a good thing. When Hitler died plenty of people noticed. I could be noticed fairly easily if I so wanted: I could walk down a street in a giant pink squirrel costume, but would that be a good thing? Presumably not (although that scenario is complicated by the fact the costume would act as a disguise ... now I think of it there's something quite attractive about having anonymous pink squirrel man as my secret identity, Gotham had batman but given the troubles the city had it needed him, for this place pink squirrel man is probably something of an overstretch ... now, where's the close parenthesis key?) Given the arguments, an anonymous death surely beats national newspaper obituries of that-pink-squirrel-guy.

So I end my day, tired but happy having avoided gaining the infamy of being pink squirrel man.

LOL, too funny. Kind of makes me think of a documentary my cousin made of himself pretending to be a sasquatch. It was kind of blair witch meets really weird guy in a gorilla suit. Needless to say it never even made it to tv, which is probably best for everyone.

That just screams "web-comic."

I can just see it now, "The Adventures of Pink Squirrel Suit Man."

Have it be all about him continually attempting to take his own life and screwing it up, but have no explanation for the suit at all...none.

Brilliant!
