What I did on my (summer) vacation

Surely I'm not the only one who immediately thinks of this when someone mentions summer vacation? (and don't call me Shirley!)
    On the first day of my summer vacation, I woke up.
    Then I went downtown. to. look. for a job.
    Then I hung out in front of the drugstore.

    On the second day of my summer vacation, I woke up.
    Then I went downtown. to. look. for a job.
    Then I hung out in front of the drugstore.

    On the third day of my summer vacation, I woke up.
    Then I went downtown. to. look. for a job.
    Then I got a job keeping people from hanging out in front of the drugstore.

    On the fourth day of my summer vacation ...

If you're not sure what I'm referring to, check out Cheech & Chong's Sister Mary Elephant skit. I swear you'll never say "thank you" the same way ever again! :)

  1. Hey, hi! Malaysia? Most excellent. So what's the deal on the "Answers" blog? What happened? Very nice to see you.

  2. Heyya Thorne :) Glad to 'see' you back in the blogosphere! ... upped and moved to a new domain, and I decided not to follow them. That particular blog was languishing anyway... if ever I gather my scattered thoughts again, I'll re-establish it in blogspot, I guess...
