Terminator 2 Blog.....

Today was a good day, for the most part....there were a few problems, but they managed to either be beaten into submission by me....or work themselves out on their own while I was busy beating a different one into submission...so..all in all, most of the smoldering fires of my workplace have been extinguished....the only sucky bit that I could NOT escape from...OR beat into submission....was the "Uniform Photo Shoot"....let me tell ya, friends and neighbors..it sucked ass...

We had to do a demo for a photo shoot...we just stood around...in uniform...in the areas which would eventually be filled by REAL models in a few weeks....just so the photos could be sent off to someone who would say things like..."Nice, but we need more lighting"....or...."Hmm...This photo should be shot with the REALLY tall guy on the left, and the weird looking Redhead on the far right.."....anyway....as usual, I drew the short fucking straw...

..four of the guys from work were chosen...not because we were particularly fun to look at....more likely because we didn't have a visible beer gut, or three days beard growth on our jowls....so...each of us wore a different uniform for the photo shoot....we had a Emergency Medical Technician suit.....one guy in a groovy 3 color desert set of Cammies.....one guy in a SWAT uniform....and then, Me...what did I get to wear?....a damn set of dark navy polyester cop clothes....while my workmates looked like they should be sniping bank robbers...saving the lives of crash victims.....or charging through the sands of Iraq....I looked like the melting-silvery-guy out of Terminator 2....It seriously sucked....and I couldn't dodge it....I couldn't beat it into submission....and I couldn't fix it....I just had to stand there like a complete weenie and take it....

..other than that little episode...I kicked ass at work today....heh....time for a drink...

Comments so far:

A cop isn't bad. You could have been dressed up as a big bunny, or maybe even a carrot. That would really stink.

PLEASE tell me that you guys then burst into a round of The Village People's "YMCA" dressed like that, and I will worship your blog forever.
