We were too busy winning a strawberry-shaped welcome mat at drag queen bingo last night to watch Kell on Earth. Thankfully fictional freelancer Betsey Morgenstern was up to some shenanigans of her own.
A Stitch in Time Saves Nine
By Betsey Morgenstern
I am so bored at my internship today. There is no one left to bully now that Big Stephanie quit and there is no one left to openly mock now that Little Andrew left. What is a PR office with only one Stephanie and one Andrew? It's like a third grade classroom with only one Madison. It's just a sad sad shell of a place where we interns get even more work. My boyfriend Tim, the Irish intern, has been so busy that he hasn't even been home to change his tennis-ball-yellow sweater with the grommeted holes in it. Poor, poor Tim. We're all working hard, but it's all tedious reports and emails and faxes and the same old problems day in and day out. There isn't much to report.
Instead of a report, I stole you Big Andrew's schedule for a day. I think you'll find it amusing. Some websites are obsessed with seating charts, but I'm sure all of my readers will be very happy with a little iCal entry for the day. It's all I could muster.
