Okay, I can’t even tell you the title of this blog, because if I did, the next time your supervisor got a memo from her boss telling him to make some cuts, he’d talk to the IT guy, who would point out that you had visited a site that had a vulgar word in the URL. And then your career would be in ruins, and no one would hire you in your career field because your former supervisor would use code words to signal to the recruiter that you are Not To Be Trusted with a desktop computer. You would have to take a job steaming milk at some corporate coffee joint, and your oh-so-PC friends would sneer at you, and mutter about burnt-tasting coffee. Then, to show that you haven’t totally sold out, you’d get piercings in peculiar places, and dye your newly spiky hair, and the corporate coffee place would quietly cut your hours, because you make the people who do have actual, productive jobs nervous.
Sooner, rather than later, you would be dumpster diving for wilted, soggy produce in the dumpster outside the organic food coop. And what’s worse, you would be proud, and smug, bragging to one and all that you managed to find all the ingredients for a chicken ceasar salad, except for the dressing. Your former friends would have quietly deleted your URL from their blogroll, “accidentally” forgotten your Twitter tag, and claimed the cell phone company failed to transfer your number over when they got the new Blackberry. But that’s okay, because you have a whole new set of friends like Angst and Harper, who are the shiz when it comes to RPG gaming, even if they only shower at the solstices.
I won’t have all that on my conscience. I’ll only tell you that there are pictures of cute animals. Click the link at home.
