because wasting time is so much fun

I got sucked into Pioneer Woman's blog again (it's soooo incredibly easy to get sucked in, that place is like a shop-vac kind of vortex). She linked to despair.com and they have a nifty DIY feature. So I played with pictures I had on my hard drive and uploaded one, and made this poster. I'm a tad impressed with myself and my snarky bent, and just narcissistic enough to share it with you.

Then I thought more on it, and came up with this one, which is even more demotivating than the first

Love Demotivators! I've followed them since I was an office drone (years ago); my boss used to get pissed when she'd see the DM screensaver on my PC. So sad to see someone w/ a gaping void where their humor center ought to be... (though I was always amused enough for both of us).

Lol... this evening I got an e-newsletter for ThinkGeek advertising their 2009 Despair, Inc. calendar. The months' themes are:

January - Government. If you think the problems we create are bad, just wait until you see our solutions.

February- Propaganda. What lies behind us and lies before us are small matters compared to what lies right to our faces.

March - Blogging. Never before have so many people with so little to say said so much to so few.

April - Customer Disservice. Because we're not satisfied until you're not satisfied.

May - Tradition. Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.

June - Procrastination. Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now.

July - Opportunity. I am Dr. Adewole Aremu- a director with the Union Bank of Nigeria in Lagos - and I wish to speak to you most urgently about a matter regarding the sum of $39,000,000 US Dollars...

August - Hope. May not be warranted at this point.

September - Sanity. Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can borrow mine.

October - Give up. At some point, hanging in there just makes you look like an even bigger loser.

November - Meetings. None of us is as dumb as all of us.

December - Corruption. I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

Love it!!

No, Mrs Soersdal, they're slightly different, click on the picture to read the captions.

Mountain woman, I love those, but have limited wall space for calendars. So I end up getting the big FLYlady calendar for the kitchen (command central) and use the freebie church calendar for my den by the desk.*sigh* if I worked in one of those office place thingys, I'd probably have a despair calendar in my workspace.
