This is what I get paid for?

This is what I did this morning. I made a tree that says bored. Which got me wondering, trees are stuck in one place their entire lives. Do they ever get bored? I then lost my train of thought because I was distracted by a man wearing pink plaid shorts. I have noticed that plaid shorts are the trend this year, but I will not be joining the party.

So back to the tree. And my boredom. I tried incredibly hard to find things to occupy myself with this morning. And this time I'm not kidding, I really did. I cleaned out my hanging-file-folder-filled drawer, (Amy, hyphens, see? I can be taught) printed out the phone logs for the phone at the desk where I work, did some math based on some numbers that are work-related but far, far too boring to explain here...and then I ran out of things to do. Until I struck upon the brilliant idea of making a tree out of the word "bored".

Sadly, even that did not end my boredness. I feel like I have had my eyes glazed over by the same delicious sugary coating that covers Krispy Kreme donuts, but without the same happy, tasty outcome.

Your pen? Drawing? image! is great. I to procrastinate with other life things then I draw/paint/contemplate draw/paint

p.s. totally agree about shorts. Solid works best for me unless they are speckled with other things like paint. need more shorts
