Small Pleasures

First of all I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who commented on my previous post. I appreciate it more than you know. I would reply to you all individually but I'm worried that I'll start crying again. That's also why I'm writing another entry today, I'm finding it hard to see Sammy's picture at the top of the page every time I come to my LJ.

Of course now I have to actually come up with something to write about, which is easier said than done.

How about work?

See the thing is I hate my job, I really do, but occasionally there are bright moments that almost make up for the soul-crushingness of it all. Today we put together a Cozy Coupe car for the shop floor:

Cosy Coupe
Car. Children not included.

I wasn't involved in the actual construction of the car, which disappoints me cos I'm a big fan of putting stuff together, but K and I did stand and watch and mock offer helpful suggestions to the people who were putting it together. And that was when we discovered that the plastic screw-in circles that pretend to be lights make really good spinning tops.

And now I am realising just how empty our lives are that this brought us so much pleasure. But still, I'm sure there are people out there who desperately wish they too could play with little pieces of plastic at work but are sadly denied the opportunity that I am blessed with.

Heh. That's awesome. I love putting stuff together. One of my fondest memories of my first school related job is putting together a tent with some... uh, let's say some common-sense-less children. It was awesomesauce.

This too is awesomesauce. You gotta find pleasure in everything you do, even the small pleasures. I enjoy mocking children openly in such a way that they do not realise I'm mocking them until after I've walked away. It's a fine line and takes a lot of practice. I have not yet refined the art, but it is a small pleasure.

Glad to know you're doing a little better. There is further hugging available, and should I survive the Christmazombie tree's attempt on my life, I look forward to seeing you again so I might give you real life hugs. (and build some kind of giant kitty hamster ball with flashing neon lights for Fury.)

That sounds like a very useful and satisfying skill to have. I approve.

Hugging is very much appreciated. We really need to meet up again some time. I miss the old days when we saw each other regularly before we all went and got lives.

I look forward to seeing Fury's reaction to your thoughtful creation...

If I could drive one of those around at work, well, that would just be too amazing for words, really.

Also, in a perfect world, I'd have a matching race car bed.

Just think, you could get up from your race car bed straight into your cozy coupe and drive around in that until it's time to return to your race car bed again! How could life get any better than that?

Also, I have officially booked off the 6th-10th September and currently have no plans for that week. Just so you know. :)
