I would like to pretend the lack of regular posts is because I have been Terribly Busy but actually I have just been Mildly Busy And Terribly Apathetic.Here is what I have been doing instead of blogging: work.
I'm currently in the early stages of putting together an advertising feature for some kind of vegetarian expo thing. Why would you need an expo? I tend to regard vegetarianism in a similar light to homosexuality, i.e. that's cool and I hope you're enjoying it but it's not for me because I love meat.
The 'I love meat' part was just meant to apply to vegetarianism.
Anyway, it turns out that organising vegetarians is like teaching cats to polka i.e. near fucking impossible - I know it sounds like a huge generalisation but these new vegetarian clients have, to a man (or lady, here we keep our discrimination equal-opportunity) been more difficult than any clients ever seen before. Also, there are vegans. I am sorry if you are reading this and you are a vegan.
I'm sure you're very nice.
I went into my boss' office and delivered a huge rant about vegans (I was tired and it seemed appropriate, although in hindsight it probably wasn't.)
Boss: I used to work with a guy who was vegan. Here, actually.
Boss: Yeah... we used to all go out on the town, get him really slaughtered, and then take him to-
Me: Burger King!
Boss: Yes! We would buy him burgers, and take photos of him eating them, and leave them on his desk on Monday morning... "Oh look, what's that a photo of? It's youuuuu, eating meee-eeeat."
Not saying that I condone that kind of behaviour, of course, but man my boss is awesome.
(Speaking of work, you know that reporter I got told off for flirting with a while back? I had a dream that we hooked up, and he was crap. Thanks for nothing, subconscious. Thanks for nothing.)
