Questionable content.

Awfuckit, it's Friday.


These are the feet of a court reporter - a court reporter so committed to her craft that her walls match the hair of the People's Court judge.  True dedication.

The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work
Alain de Botton (2009)

Excerpt:  If a Martian came to earth and tried to understand what humans do from reading most literature published today, he would come away with the extraordinary impression that we mostly spend our time falling in love -- and occasionally, murdering one another. But of course, what we really do is go to work – and yet this “work” is unseen, it is literally invisible and it is so in part because it is not represented in art. If it does appear in consciousness, it does so via the business pages of newspapers, it does so as an economic phenomenon, rather than as a broader human phenomenon.


"Beer is living proof that god loves us and wants us to be happy."  - Benjamin Franklin

Shirts - they're overrated.
