Reruns and Retries

Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple streudels. Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles. Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings ... Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes. Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes.

(So it was a good dream alright?)

Alarm goes off

Miss M: Seriously? You have got to be kidding me?! I only just went to sleep!

So that was the moment I realised that I didn't really have to go to work - who would want a showless co-ordinator with a snotty nose and horrid cough wandering around the building?

I didn't know who to tell I wasn't coming in though since I don't really have an official boss so I emailed 2 people on my floor and my line manager. I'm hoping that none of them mind.

Basically I'm chilling out at home watching reruns and music videos. Hey has anyone noticed how many old school boy bands are making comebacks these days? I got the whole Take That phenomenon (sort of) but I just saw Wet Wet Wet! I thought they'd died or something ... "J" from F1ve was attemping a comeback via The Show not to mention the fact that I'm hearing some rumour about New Kids on the Block reuniting?!

Who actually liked them the first time round?!

Isn't it good that I can spend my day worrying about the things that really matter?

Oh dear! Some boy bands need to stay undercover.

Only legend type boy bands can make a successful come back. Take That were the most poular boy band in the world during the 90s. Their songs are classic cheese now.

They came back, adapted their style and grew up.

Five is a mistake. You can see that failing in a big way. New Kids? Way too old to make a decent come back.

Wet Wet Wet? I thought the lead singer died!

Enjoy your day off Miss M. Pity the rest of us that are working.

Okay... Pretending to work!

@elise - I so thought that Wet Wet Wet were dead too! Is this some sort of conspiracy?!?!?

Next frikken Boyzone, Boyz 2 Men or *shudders* NSync will be making a come back!

Or do I speak too late?

@sweets - Oh I am, I am ;)

I HATE you so much right now! your chilling at home while i have to battle through work while feeling like shit and having to deal with evil senior designers stress levels again !!


Since you like the sound of my job how about we swop jobs for awhile??



The Divine Miss M said...

@Gem - do not be fooled. This is rather taxing. I have to decide what program I am going to watch and whether or not I can actually finish eating all then chips left in the packet or if I am going to hurl ;)

BTW I do actually have a cold ... and a really nasty post nasal drip.

Lucky you get to stay home! :) Boy Bands should stay retired! Should they even be called Boy Bands anymore? They're not exactly ... boys... More like the Dancing Old Mens Band :)

@pdx - I LOVE THAT! Dancing Old Men Bands - so what Take That should be called. Well they don't do much dancing now do they? Do you think they're worried about breaking something in their old age?

@nick - I thought so too :)

@haley - GO FOR IT! Sick days are brilliant and we have to use them up somehow don't we?
