Stupid plan, but we go with what we have.

So, I've been spacy, out of it, wasting hewge amounts of company time on private e-mail, running home to meet the repairman (of which I am reminded of Monday's conversation of the 7 Primal Porn Plots), and in short being the sort of employee that I would hate to be, even with the mitigating factor of close personal friend dying.

So, here's my plan. I'm proud of this.

I'm declaring today a vacation day.

Check it out! Instead of "Jacob's been spacing out all day, he should go home," it's "What a hard worker, he's doing stuff here on his vacation day." And so many bonus martyr points, too! This is a great plan :)

Laughter tends to come easily under these circumstances, a mixed blessing that I am most grateful for :)

Yay! You can turn in those points for a hair t-shirt later on. :)

No, no, save them up long enough and you'll get a snazzy flail for self-flagellation! I hear if you moan and bitch about how long saving up for it takes, they even throw in the first nail for your cross, too!

Bonus points for whacking yourself in the head while chanting latin.

Ok, please elaborate on "the 7 Primal Porn Plots". Sounds amusing.

Okay, well, there probably aren't seven, most porn plots seem to boil down to "strange person enters mundane person's life, sex occurs." This seems to be the gay porn cornerstone. There might also be the "road trip," where someone decides to go forth and debauch. There are probably others, I'm not a porn afficionado, I'll leave this as an excercise to the audience :)

I receintly dug up the 7 basic plots according to Shakespeare (the Love story, the Revenge Story, Murder Mystery, the History, the Tall Tale, Coming of Age, and Hail & Farewell), so this seemed interesting.

Did you ever see when Trio network showed the three-part Good Clean Porn show? I only caught one, "I dream of Jenna", it was a spoof of "I Dream of Jeanie". With all of the sex editied out, it was no better or worse than any Jeanie episode. Kind of scarey.
