Circus

By Sam Jarvis

Come one, come all, to the greatest attraction you’ve ever seen! All of the wonder and magic you could possibly imagine, with the greatest talent in the world! Introducing, for the first time on stage, spotlight please, drumroll… The woman who juggles!

In one hand she has her sick mother! She needs constant care and still has a house full of old yearbooks and crap to sort through! They’ve never been close, but now that she’s dying that doesn’t matter and she has to handle everything her mother is leaving behind!

In the other hand is her dream job that took her six years to get! The hours are long but eventually she might be happy! If only her evil boss Ted would cut her some fucking slack once in awhile everything would be good but of course he doesn’t so her dream job is quickly becoming her worst nightmare! Does she even want to work in this profession anymore? Who knows! Life is hard!

And up, way up in the air, is her serious boyfriend who is ready to settle down, boy he’s really flying up there! Even though there is a lot going on in her life he wants to get married and have babies as soon as possible!!

Can she fling her almost dead mother into the air just as her future husband comes crashing down to the hand that holds her dream job? We’ll see! Gather in the center tent, ladies and gentlemen, for the most thrilling show of the season!

Widget Is A Silly Word

When your job is the internet, there are certain words or phrases you hear all the time that are so ridiculous you can’t help but laugh in the middle of a conference call.

“Oh boy, what’s going on over there? Something hilarious and crazy?!” (This is always what they hope is happening, because my office is very fun.) “No, you said widgets.”

Other silly words: virality. clickable. module.

I’m hearing that the Twitter widget (hehe) on the side of this site isn’t working. What a fun thing for me to figure out today!! Can’t wait. Until then, follow me on Twitter here.
