The View, because I give up
This morning, just before I gave up on “Accomplishments” and started watching Ellen, I was reading Johnnysxsw’s sxsw blog. Two years ago I had the best sxsw ever. I was thinish and I kept ending up in the same room as Wayne Coyne and I went to bed just before dawn every day and we made up a new phrase for sucky performances (taking a Delpy) and my best friend made out with the dude from The Darkness in a portapotty. Best. Story. Ever.
Last year I worked and it was lame.
BUT, this year I am broke and I am not going to do anything. Instead of going to bed just before dawn, I wake up just before dawn, even though I don’t have to work. My dog hates me because I have to clean up the fissure on her butt twice a day. Instead of fantasizing about bumping into Wayne Coyne and finding out that talking to geniuses makes me a genius too, I fantasize about finding twenty bucks in the gutter. This is not a good time for me.
I fear that Darling Husband and I are settling in bourgeois “affluence.” (That blond on the view just transfixed me. She was telling everyone how to use the cell phone and flush the toilet without tipping off to your interlocutor that you are in a public restroom stall.) Affluence in quotes because we are broke. Do you know why we are broke right now? Because we paid bills. Not because I bought something kickass or because Rhett went nuts at the bar and bought a couple rounds or because we went out to dinner for two weeks strait. We are broke because we met our obligations.
Is there a way to do that without drifting into the ultimate tool lifestyle? Or should I just start paying attention to The View? Did you know that there is hot supermodel who says she is a virgin? The ladies on the view are split about her integrity.
