Super Grown Up

It’s been quiet around here lately. That is because I am doing super adult things, like entering into negotiations. And, er, filling out forms. So, so many forms. There are forms for applying for other forms. Forms to email. Forms to sign. Forms to fill out in triplicate. Forms to confirm the filing of other forms. Forms for the formation of new forms. Formless forms.

LOL Forms!

LOL Forms!

Having been an online freelancer almost my entire working life, dealing with these things is weird. I’ve recently had several conversations with people who were wearing a tie. And if not a tie, a tasteful necklace. And that lady clothing that sort of drapes and isn’t jeans. I don’t even know what you call it. There’s been a steady flow of people wearing business attire and giving firm handshakes. This has been both bizarre and unsettling.

haha business

I have responded by wearing t-shirts with cats on them, sleeping a lot, and writing copious amounts of spanking fiction in an attempt to self-soothe. It’s working. I think.

    jajajajajajajj, so glad you self-soothe writing copious amounts of spanking fiction. I approve. And i am wearing a tie, so it means A LOT.

    P.S. Okay, I am not wearing a tie today but i very well could be.

      T’is the cure for all ills and not so ills…

      Happy? Write.
      Sad? Write.
      Stressed? Write.

        T’is the cure if you are Loki Renard. Although even non-writers write. And at the very least, we all fantasize and we all read. Well, not all, but you get it…

        So yes, Doctor, t’is the cure. You are proven right once again. *firm handshake*

    Loki, I’m very proud of you. I knew you could do grown-up things if you tried. πŸ˜‰ (More grown up than me, anyway. I never wear the drapey lady clothing, and rarely wear tasteful necklaces. Like DD, however, I have worn a tie. *bg*)

      Well thank you Alyx. Perhaps one day we will solve the mystery of drapey lady clothing, though on balance there do appear to be more tie wearers here :).

      (And I’ve always tried to impress my maturity upon you, I’m glad you’re coming to see the light.)

    Sit up straight! Try not to wriggle.
    This is serious. Don’t giggle!
    Pay attention to the stuffed shirt
    Listing rules that make your head hurt.
    Sign right here, and there initial,
    Making everything official
    In red tape, so deeply mired,
    Is this crap really required?

    Yes! The banks and lawyers sleazy,
    Clerks and jerks and other cheesy
    Paper pushing mindless autocrats,
    Sycophants and creepy bureaucrats
    All require your attention
    To details whose one intention
    Suspiciously appears to be
    To give them job security.

      Oh I love this! Thank you sparrow πŸ™‚

      (I tried to write some poetry last night, it did not work out nearly as well as this.)
