Coming To A Theater Near You
Remember yesterday when I was moderately funny? Yes? Okay. Good. That's going to have to hold you for the day. Funny has left the stage and been replaced by Big Ball of Stress starring in the musical hit Oh Crap, How Can I Get All This Done. Featuring the acclaimed songs Fuck It All (Let's Run Away To Tahiti), Who Do I Have To Blow To Get More Hours In The Day, and Unrealistic Expectations, The New York Times called it a riotously wicked send-up of office politics and the efforts of one man to bend the space-time continuum. Newsweek hailed its star, Rude Cactus, as thoroughly convincing - I honestly thought he was ripping his hair out in large clumps while going slowly mad sniffing dry-erase markers. That's stage presence! and Bill O'Reilly added that pinko commie liberal was okay. What say you?

I say I must be your understudy because it all sounds eerily familiar. Are you sure it's a musical though? Because, man, nobody wants to hear me sing. Oh. Yeah. I guess it's a good thing you're the star then. Whew. Such a relief. Just don't get sick!
Hmm...this movie must be a sequel, b/c I think I've seen it quite often lately! There is definately NOT enough hours in the day to get the crap the bosses want done! EXAMPLE: "You need to close out all these insurance codes by December 1st!!" ME: "There is a 3" print out of just the Private pay clients! I honestly can't get this done alone." BOSS: "Oh, well, do what you can." WHAT THE F$@&!!!! It's a lose-lose battle. Enjoy the movie people! ;P
Oh Crap, How Can I Get All This Done.
I hear you. I am leaving for France in less than 2 weeks, and I haven't bought the first Christmas gift.
I have a ton of other stuff to do as well.
Panic is setting it.
yeah...but can you sign it?
fuck it all (lets run away to tahiti) is my theme song as of late...
the lyrics: "who needs a thesis, who needs a degree, when all i want to do is drink apple martinis..."
I say, I'm glad I no longer work in cubicle-land... ;)
Who do I have to blow to get tickets? I'll bring more markers for the party afterwards.
Dude. "Fuck It All (Let's Run Away to Tahiti)" is my theme song!
i saw that show, it was excellent-- alarmingly realistic though. the fact that it ran for over 8 hours was quite depressing
Hahaha! I Am always so glad to make this my frist stop in the morning! =)
As for the musical, I have been staring in the offbroadway production for years. Since it's off-broadway, we got to add another song to our production. My big solo in fact - it's called "Would someone please answer that fucking phone (I already have one on hold you lazy bastards!)
Sounds a lot like the show that my husband is in right now! He, likewise, is ripping clumps of hair out trying to meet deadlines and working late nights... You guys should co-star!!
That's a musical? I was sure it was a drama. I must be your nemesis. I plan on running away soon and not coming back for a month. YAYYY!
I've got to get tickets to this musical, it's something I can't afford to miss!
but look, still funny. mostly because it's so true that Bill O'Reilly would call you a pinko commie liberal.
Fuck it all is one of my favorite songs! Watch those dry erase markers...they'll get'cha.
I give you two thumbs up. Good luck. :)
mmmm.... big smelly marking pens.... mmmmm
The Cake song with the lyrics "Shut the Fuck Up" was my theme song at Enron - yes, you read that right, Enron. The resume is scarred for life.
i guess i'll let it slide for ONE day. jeez.
Add me to the group of "haven't bought a single gift yet and would really rather not." I don't even have a job, and I'm stressed.
Two thumbs way up!!!! I thought things usually slowed down in the office around the holidays...not this year. I don't have a single decoration up yet.
Dry markers, oh yes. I have found myself, when doing the business standup thing in front of 40 or 50 people, unconsciously snapping the lid off markers and sniffing them whilst smiling weirdly.
"Damn, I hate it when you're not funny," said Ms. Q as she wipes the tears from her eyes and once again cleans the coffee off of her monitor.
I need the lyrics to those songs, especially "Fuck it All (Let's Run Away to Tahiti)" - I think that may be my new anthem!
Well, I thought that was funny. So I guess you'll be okay, as you seem able to keep your sense of the ridiculous intact.
Rude Cactus receives a Tony nod for best actor in a musical-comedy, especially for his solo tap number to "Spilling the coffee mug on the tower o' crap".
When you figure out who you have to blow to get more hours in the day, let me know and send him over. Geez! Hope you have some good chapstick.
Sounds like the funny didn't quite stop with yesterday, stress or no stress. :)
Still funny. ANd I think my hubby could relate....
You forgot my personal holiday favorite "We wish you a Merry Fuckmas and a Lousy New Year" which plays over the company feed as they keep you till 5pm on Friday, December 23.
Tell me about it, I've been staying late for weeks, and it's going to be like this at least till christmas.. at least you can work from home :)
For your sake, I'm hoping there's no encore.
Nah...this was pretty funny, too. I could definitely be a co-star in this musical you speak of!
i love smelling dry erase markers!
ROFLMAO!! I loved the first song! One of my favorites that seems to be on looped on my stereo sometimes.
And don't forget the incredible classic tune, "You Want Me To Do What (And By WHEN)?"
I feel ya, Chris. Sincerely and truly! Hang in there.
I heard that Salon called Rude Cactus "The voice of a generation."
