top 5 tuesday

I am actually doing a top 5 tuesday on tuesday this week

top 5 reasons to leave home for the day/weekend/week/ever

5) you left a mess in the kitchen and don't want to clean it up
4) your room smells a little funky and you are trying to air it out before you suffocate in your sleep one night
3) you are tired of cooking and cleaning for your parents
2) your dad is being sad and it makes you uncomfortable
1) your mother is being an epic bitch...epically

this is why I spend (or try to spend) so little time at home

Do you notice a pattern?

jobs I would not want

Dormitory Janitor

Being a sanitary technician is probably not anyone's absolute top choice for a career, but the horror that is this job would be exponentially increased if your placement were in a college dormitory. Because you'd be in charge of cleaning up drunk kids' puke. Probably among other gross things.

And that's probably as far as we need to go with our imaginations down that path. Yikes.

top 5 tuesday: reasons not to update your blog

5. your good friend is hanging out the night before she moves to Buffalo
4. it's Sunday and you're lazy
3. it's Sunday and there's an SVU marathon on USA
2. after catching up on Facebook and Jez, you got tired of the computer
1. you spent the weekend doing actual fun stuff in LaConner, Washington

So I'm sorry! That's my point. We're bad bloggers, but we're working on it.

top 5 tuesday: TV shows to veg with

I am a little late, sorry, but facebook distracts me to no end
my list is going to be trashier than Brunny's, just a warning

5) Beauty and the Geek
season 3 was killer, putting the geeky guys with a smart and still cute girl created the most adorable awkward tensions!
4) The Real World (including Real World/Road Rules challenges)
3) Rock of Love/I love New York
I KNOW! How awful, I know but seriously what is better than Bret Michaels (balding) and going after hot, trashy, crazy women and one totally insane woman with fake gazongas going after 'gangstas' with her mom at her side screaming the whole time?
2) Greek
which we just bought the 1st season of and it has consumed me, fully, since then
1) Scrubs
I love turk. This show and a certain bel biv de voe song taught me to never trust a big butt and a smile

5. Beauty and the Geek
4. Psych/Monk (more or less similar)
3. The Office
2. Arrested Development

jobs I would not want

Tennis Court/Golf Course Employee

Initially, the unexperienced reader might think that either of these venues would provide plenty of opportunities for active fun and a snazzy work wardrobe, but to conclude that these jobs are all upside would be wrong, to put it mildly.

The primary task an employee would perform in these instances is: picking up balls. Over and over. All day.

Once recently I played tennis with a tennis coach friend of mine, so I spent about two hours flailing around with a racket, missing, and subsequently picking up a shit ton of tennis balls. And let me tell you that after a while, the last thing in the world your mind and body want to do is bend over for that stupid yellow ball. And the next day, your hamstrings don't want to do anything at all, in protest.

And that would be your life. For which you'd probably be compensated poorly.
