Here Comes the Fun

The freelance style not being nearly as monetarily satisfying as no one would have you believe, I started a new job yesterday. I'm a very low-level (yet overpaid!) lackey at a winkingly unnamed computer giant, where my supervisor sat me down with a packet of very poorly thought-out power-point printouts yesterday, one of which was titled:

German Prank Calls



She is inexplicably and completely convinced that every prank call the department receives comes from Germany. Discussion of time zones and hassle in dialing from Germany had no effect.

This is brilliant.

Needless to say, the piles of money will allow some actual plays to be seen soon, and signals the overcoming by this blog of the horrible pits of moneylessness. In the meantime, anyone seen anything good?

  • Hey! Laura! Congrats on your new job. This morning, I thought to myself...I wonder if Laura did ever post any more reviews on that site...and POOF, there was a new post about your fancy occupation. Valerie says you may be working on the big honkin' musical...?

    Congrats on the new job. And no, haven't seen anything good lately. Example:

  • Everyone blames "zee Germans" for everything. Can't we let that whole Holocaust thing slide and remember that strong beer and robust bratwurst continue to provide citizens with artistic inspiration and a minor amount of gas?
