I Have No Title For This Post

I need to take a few days off from blogging.

Work is kicking my ass (my 25 hour-per-week contract has stretched into 35 hours-per-week to prepare for a major work event in two weeks).

School is kicking my ass (quiz tonight, term paper due Monday, A&P final exam on Monday, final presentation on Wednesday).

So I leave you with the below, which I think really captures in a single photo the essence of my Friday evening in Seattle:

All I can say is: It's a stuggle, livin' like a good boy oughta.

That, and: I'm Nobody's Monkey Boy.
Proper, bitches.

If that pig wasn't bolted to the ground, I'd mostly likely have it in my living room by now.

Jidai said...

Haha. I did the same thing with the Snoopy statues around my town. Good luck with all the work and homework!

Jake Titus said...

Good thing you -X'd- out the eyes to protect the identity of all parties involved. From what I hear, mounting a pig is only legal in Arkansas.

So up on your feet. Up on your feet
Somewhere there’s music playing.
Don’t you worry none
We’ll just take it like it comes.

One day at a time, one day at a time.
One day at a time, one day at a time.
One day at a time, one day at a time.
One day at a time, one day at a time.

I need a huge enlargement of this to hang on my bedroom door, like your "Keep Calm & Carry On" poster. LOVE this!

That's right, amigo. When work and school bring your down, turn to the animal kingdom. They don't talk back.

Mr. Shain said...

i don't think there's really anything that can be said about above photo that is snarky enough to do it justice.

what's with this constant reminder that you're nobody's monkey boy? is this a pop culture reference the kids are using these days?

finally, edit much? seriously there were like twenty-five words here, you could have at least read it before you posted.

Boston Bitches! :)

Airam said...

That photo is hot.

I'm Frank said...

Damn, why can't we have statues of cool stuff. All Chicago has is a giant silver bean, a bunch of statues of dead people, and a sculpture of what looks like a woman with a fork in her head...but boars? Nope.

If we don't get the 2016 Olympics, I'll blame it on this.

that picture should be the new banner at the top of this page as that pig is clearly a cherry ride

Uh... you're lots of people's Monkey Boy - especially Recken's.

Julie_Gong said...

seriously... can we hang out soon?

ReckenRoll said...


Deal with it.

Also - love Carolyn's suggestion. That pig is definitely a CherryRide.

JUSTIN said...

Nice shoes...

Mighty Dyckerson said...

35 hours a week, huh?? You poor baby, you must be exhausted.

carolyn says said...

i made change happen! hooray!

House of Jules said...

Not only is the pig in your new header photo a cherry ride, but you could also dub the photo itself as:
Cherry, rides.

Love it.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Spammon:: No way, it would be mine first.

Jidai:: Snoopy, really? Thanks.

Jake:: Yeah, the innocent need to be protected. And technically, I'm not mounting, I'm merely "riding." Oh nevermind.

D:: I think the fact that it is a pig makes it all the more special.

Classy:: Thanks for the "One Day at a Time" inspiration. You're the Schneider to my Ms. Romano.

Dr. Ken:: Definitely let's do it.

HOJ:: Thanks for the support. When are we doing Gospel Brunch??

Canuck:: Wiser words never spoken.

Mr. Shain:: As usual, I have no fucking clue what your point is.

Kate:: "Boston, Bitches" is right!! Great hanging out with you Friday.

Airam:: I'm sure the pig is flattered!

Frank:: Remember all the cows alog Michigan Ave.? I wonder what ever happened to those.

Carolyn:: Awesome idea, thanks.

Niner:: How much is she paying you to say that?

Julie:: Umm, Yeah! Come on over!

Recken:: You are supposed to be looking out for me, not making me dance for the camera!

Justin:: Thanks. Ironically, they're probably the most boring shoes I own.

Dyck:: Eat Me! You try working 35 hours and taking an Anatomy & Physiology class. (Or maybe you already have.)

Carolyn:: Yes, you can take all the credit for it!

HOJ:: Seriously, when are we doing Gospel Brunch??

House of Jules said...

Cherry: Did you get my email(s)? Seriously, I'm borderline stalking you! At least I haven't been sending you hugs or smiles or whatever via facebook like your roommate.
Let me know if they didn't come through for some reason (casajules (at) gmail (dot) com)
