Someone Needs a Job (and someone else needs to actually do work at hers)

So, my sister and I emailed 15 times today. That's not even a record for us. And, she's still at work because it's two hours earlier there... so the number could go up. And I give you... a highly productive (yes, slightly edited) conversation:

Sister: Quick question - I'm confirming with SuperCuts (name changed to protect the innocent), our stylists for the day, and they were wondering if anyone would like to do make-up as well, because they can send a make-up artist as well. It's $40 per person, which is why I was tempted to say no right away, but if anyone would like it, no problem, just let me know by the end of the day.

Me: As much as I would love to have someone do my makeup, my bank account cannot take the vanity :) I'm quite excited about the hairstyling though. T-minus 8 hours until the new Project Runway!!!

Sister: Are you around - did you see that I called?

Me: Yeah, totally forgot you had a new number. Is that your cell phone? What's up? I was in the shower, and now we're going to get some lunch soon.

Sister: No, no, just wanted to rant for 2 minutes about how SuperCuts didn't have my reservation written down, but they scrambled and fixed it, so we're good.

Me: Sugar. I would hate to be on the other end of THAT conversation. Hearing you rip the reception facility people a new a@#$^&* was scary enough!

Sister: Haha, yeah you would have heard the tail end of my rant, had you picked up the phone. Good thing, I guess! P.S. Where's the blog entry today - slacking maybe? Come on, working people need a distraction!

Me: Sigh. I haven't done anything yet today so I have nothing to blog about!!

Me (30 minutes later): Ok Miss high maintenance- the blog is updated. Happy procrastinating.

Sister: Haha, sweet! I've gotten a friend of mine hooked - she said she couldn't stop laughing after reading your weed story.

Me: Yea!!! I'm glad I'm so entertaining. I never realized that people actually thought my writing was funny. Well, enjoy the entry about ice cream - if you aren't hungry for some after reading, I haven't done my job.

Sister: Yum, I want some Ben and Jerry's cookie dough that's in my freezer right NOW. Thanks, for making getting through the work day just THAT much more difficult. ;)

Me: My god there is just no pleasing you ;) Are you getting your makeup done?

Sister: Ick. No. I want the person in all the pictures to look like ME. Which reminds me, I need to call SuperCuts back and let them know that we won't need the make-up artist...

So, 5 hours after the email began... she finally has her answer about the make-up artist :)

Thanks Sis. Now the mother is REALLY going to be on my a** (that's for the Bmore friends reading) about not working at work!

The mother already knows about BOTH of her offspring NOT working at work. Where do you think they learned it?

The adopted child doesn't work at work either. =)

Really, M, we should talk. How much work did we get done with our preps at the same time?

Darn you,! :)
