Tee To Tall?
Had a thought this morning: maybe I should rechristen this blog The PR Diaries. But then, I gave the thought up on two counts, primarily: 1/ I'm going to get bored with that after a while, and 2/ I'm liable to be fired if I write some of the really juicy stuff. So, since I value my Rs XXk a month paycheque, I'll stick to snippets here and there.
Like the do last night. A social thingy, organised for jittery clients. (Most of the clients are jittery - otherwise they wouldn't be clients.) And as I was talking about it later on the phone with a friend, the comment I got was: "Your job involves so much of entertainment and partying that it's no wonder your diet is off track! There's just too much fun in your life!"
To this, I retorted, "What entertainment? Where are the exotic dancers then? Just a bunch of stodgy old men around!"
"I can be an exotic dancer for the right price!" came the reply, and I burst out laughing.
But when I thought about it later, some of it made sense. Especially as far as my socialising habits are concerned. This morning, a co-worker asked me how drunk I got at the do last night, and I realised that I never drink more than a glass at these shindigs (an Archie Andrews word!) - at the most, maybe two. That manifests itself even when I go out partying with friends: I would much prefer a great dinner at a great restaurant, rather than go boozing at a hot pub. When another co-worker bemoans the fact that he hasn't had any liquor in two weeks, I don't really identify with his need for booze. It's all ho hum for me, and no longer any hic hic hurrahs!
Yes, and everyone thanks for your appreciation of the new blog skin. I really like this one, even though its soooooooooo orangeeeyyyyy! ;-)
Absolutely love the new blog design...
But could you please increase the font size. These tired old eyes find it tough to read the fine print let alone trying to read between the lines.
The tendency to stay sober when you are out on work dos is something that I can remember from way back when I used to have to take clients for a night out
viraf - ure wish... is my command! ;-)
Oh yeah the skin is nice. Just noticed it. With RSS you dont get to look skins so had to come over to the website to take a look at this one. Very good :)
