Strawberry Shortcake saves the day

It's always this time of year when I think about T.S. Eliot. I mean, seriously, T.S.-- you think April is the cruelest month? I love April. Let's talk about January and February. Gag. I hate these months. They are cruel and boring and awful.

Um. I've been a little bored lately.

My house is (relatively) clean. My to-do list is entirely in control. And it's too cold to spend any time outside.

I've been looking for random jobs on Craigslist (this is what I do when I'm bored). And there was a posting for hair technicians, but you don't need experience, working on former childcare workers, and you get paid $20/hour. What? Something tells me I would show up for an interview and leave with one less kidney.

Something that always brightens my day, however, is a Netflix description of one of Bria's favorite movies: Strawberry Shortcake: Sky's the Limit. Just read this little gem:

Strawberry Shortcake engages her entrepreneurial spirit and opens a sweet Berry Café to booming business in the heart of Berry Bitty City -- until the town's endangered water supply threatens to dry up her business and devastate the region.

Can't you just imagine some poor, bored soul sitting in a Netflix office, being so bored describing movie after movie that he decides to describe Strawberry Shortcake like some drama or action movie? I love it.


  1. hahaha. that job posting is classic.

  2. I love it. Maybe they're hiring a movie synopsis writer! I could see you spicing all kinds of movie descriptions up.
    Please say you applied for the hair technician position. If for no other reason, just to see... I mean, you never know. Plus, you wouldn't be a'd be a TECHNICIAN. That part alone had me laughing.

  3. Also, I agree about Jan and Feb being the WORST. But you already knew I shared that sentiment.
