This has been a relatively promising week, especially when compared to last week. I had a phone interview on Monday, and I made the first cut! I will have another interview tomorrow. Yay! I was able to skip work all afternoon on Wednesday to volunteer for our company. I egg washed tons of chicken! It was fun, and it was great to help out Project Open Hand. I may think about doing meal delivery one weekend. Then yesterday I made this amazing breakfast for my friends:
The only little twinge of annoyance I feel today, other than the fact 3:00 just can’t get here soon enough, stems from my company blogging. I have been writing articles like the one I did this week about Denim on the runway and how to get the look through the power of arts and crafts for a long time. Guess who gets her own blog about fashion and glamor and all that is fabulous and Rarity? Not me. The high-school girl who models for Pur and got an internship with the company because she’s buddy-buddy with the VP of marketing did. Ugh. I guess I should have been born just under six feet tall with a twenty inch waist, but at least I make fashion fun!!
I actually wrote this week’s song a few weeks ago, but I wanted a Joie Brown illustration very badly. She also wanted to do it very badly, so I postponed this song until she could finish a piece for me. Here it is. Bask in the glory that is a Prentice and Joie production! We need a celebrity combo name, like Prowie or Joientice or Jrentiwie.
Spick & Span
To the song “Popular” from the musical Wicked
Prentice: Fridgie, now that we’re friends, I’ve decided to make you my new project.
Fridgie: You really don’t have to do that –
Prentice: I know! That’s what makes me so nice!
Whenever I see someone less fortunate than I,
and let’s face it! Who isn’t less fortunate than I?
My tender heart tends to start to bleed,
and when some fridge needs a makeover,
I’ve simply got to take over!
I know! I know exactly what it needs,
and even in your case…though it’s the toughest case I’ve yet to face,
don’t worry! I’m determined to succeed! Follow my lead,
and yes indeed…you…will…be…
Spick & Span! You’re gonna be spick & span!
I’ll throw out that old bok choy and some chick’s La Croix,
other foods left by our staff. Ooh!
You’ll look like a billionaire once I take those pears,
and everything that really counts to be
spick & span! I’ll help you be spick & span!
We’ll deport sour milk by quarts,
with some chocolate tortes ,
and destroy the overflow,
so let’s start, ‘cause you’ve got an awfully long way to go!
Don’t be offended by my frank analysis,
think of it as rationality dialysis.
Now that I’ve chosen to become a
pal, a receptionist,
none else is wisest,
not when it comes to spick & span!
I know about spick and span,
and with an assist from me,
to be what you’ll be,
instead of yucky who you were – oh! – are!
There’s nothing that can stop you from becoming Spick and Span! Ha!
La! Laaaa! La! La!
You’ll be spick & span,
but not quite as spick & span
