last night, today

[written last night]
I’m watching The Pink Panther (the cartoon). I didn’t remember that there was a laugh track. How odd. PP is working at a Chinese restaurant called Gung Ho. Whenever someone orders, he hits a gong – each item on the menu is related to a certain number of gongs. They just showed one menu item that was called the Big Bong. Nice. I always really liked Pink Panther (though Bugs Bunny was my fave), but the only thing I remember about the cartoons is the moment the PP eats reality. Like, he would grab the edge of the TV screen and fold it over and over until he had a small square, apply salt and pepper and eat it. Then he’d expand to the size of the screen. Heavy.

I’m working from home today. They’re moving me from one office to another, so my work computer is out of commission. Since I spend most of the work day in front of a computer anyway, what’s the diff, right? The diff is, instead of shooting the shit with coworkers, I did some laundry. I’ve spent most of the day not wearing a bra (had to put one on to run a quick errand). I’m sitting on the couch with a rat dog curled up next to me and my computer on my lap, shrinking my reproductive organs. I have music playing and don’t have to worry about it being too loud. I can dig this working from home thing, but I need to make a deal with the house that I’m going to ignore it during work hours. Otherwise I’ll just end up repainting the living room and remodeling the second bedroom…
