Amanda Bynes I Am Dead Jealous

Greetings all,

I read with an increasing green tinge of envy, that Amanda Bynes* GETS TO RETIRE AT 24. She doesn't like her job anymore so she's decided to retire.

That is soooooooo NOT FAIR.

I want to retire at 24 .... well OK I'm 20 years past that........... but still I wanna retire.

My loyal readers will recall I am currently suffering from a busted foot. Unfortunately I've only managed to scam convince my doctor of the need for a week and a half off work. Consequently I am schlepping myself into work everyday after dropping my little angel at school, with a big brace on my foot that seems to weigh 20kgs by the end of the day.

I had this 'occupational therapist' assessment last week to make sure that I could 'return to work' in a timely and safe manner and stay there until I'm fully recovered. I am quite happy to recover at home, but that's not how it works with a government job unfortunately.

Anyway she recommended a leg rest to elevate my leg under my workstation, and OMG you would not believe how difficult it has been to get this $60 item. Today the guy that is finally getting on to it (finally after a week already) tells me he can do something for me next Thursday. I tell him sheeeeeeeeeesh my foot will be better by then Mate! Talk about red tape.

I tell ya the minute I win lotto I am OUTTA THERE.

Now it's not that I don't like my job, I do, actually. But I just really need more time to catch up on blogs, post comments and generally slack off educate myself on the ways of life.

Anyways enough of my whining...............

    Ah yes - retiring early due to excessive amounts of cash in the bank - lovely. I personally have guaranteed everyone I know that if I ever win the Lotto I will change completely. I will disappear faster than lightning and buy myself some new friends.
    I was pleased to find that they all clubbed together to buy me some lucky dips after that!

  2. Katie Says:

    Just because you are SOOOOO sweet and say all kinds of super nice things about me, WHEN I win the lottery, I will share my winnings with you. I will even deliver it myself.
    I pinky promise.
    You rock so hard! be paid to blog. THAT would be awesome. Or to do the dishes.
    That would make my life about perfect.
