A Motivational Monday That is Late, But Hopefully Isn't a Debacle: Justin Gets By With The Help of His ESN.

In the wake of yesterday's debacle involving my highly inaccurate first post, and my poorly received second post, a lot of people have asked me why I don't just give up on life.

I will tell you why.

No matter, how pathetic my efforts are at holding on to my status as one of the top bloggers in the fourth Q. of Cleveland Heights, I realize that I have an Emotional Support Network ® ©

At first it was Me and Henry PLANTagenets against the world. But of late, I have vastly expanded my social network:



These guys are really there for me. Sometimes I feel like I don't deserve them, but then I think about how much I paid for them.

Does it matter if I'm a great author or the destroyer of literary magazines?
Not with my ESN ® ©.

Does it matter if I spend all of my my money on Infomercial products that promise Space-Age Gardening Technology?
Not with my ESN ® ©.

So, let's go back two weeks.

Start goofing around. Achievements are overrated.

And find yourself a ESN ® ©.

Amazon.com,
You just jealous!

But don't worry. I'll hook you up with some fresh Chives.

That looks very nice. I'd get one, but my cat happens to have herbivorous predilections towards any of my houseplants.

She even eats the plastic ones I bought, just to spite me. I know she does this because I find little tooth marks in my fake ivy and little green plastic bits in her poo-box.

Regarding that nice fellow Elvis who wants to construct a giant papier mache penguin, he might want to consult with an Australian. Australians are very good at the design and implementation of oversized flora and fauna, most notably the Giant Worm, the Big Koala, and the Big Pineapple.

If Elvis would like to peruse some of the Big Things that Australians have created he can go to this excellent site: http://www-staff.it.uts.edu.au/~don/big/big.html

As an infomercial connoisseur, are you familiar with the Magic Bullet? It would come in handy when you are named Poet Laureate for your mastery of the art of blogging. You could have a party and make everyone smoothies.

Christina said...

I have a Magic Bullet but it's not used for making smoothies.

Frank said...

Wow. Looks like Henry started a cult.

alecia said...

HAHAHA christina i love you for that comment.

taihae said...

I call mine the pocket rocket, christina. or Fabiola la Voom. tomatoes and to mah toes, i guess.

Justin said...

taihae,
I guess that explains why you never responds to my comments on your blog. j.

Justin said...

adieu,
You are more easily impressed than I previously suspected.

Frank,
Sure they may be viewed as crazy, but on the Day of the Great De-Fertilization, they will be glad they stuck to their beliefs.

Justin said...

Christina,

So. Um. Huh.

j.

Justin said...

miss lippy,

I don't think I will have a party. Ever.

But to reward for your undying faith in my abilities, I will buy you a smoothie when I am named Poet Laurette.

Any size, any flavor.

j.

P.S. But no toppings. Sorry. That stuff adds up. Plus it isn't good for you.

Justin said...

Christina,

Because of the vast scope of your comments I am not going to even attempt a response.

However, I have changed my mind about the CCF incident.

Please arrange my marriage to previously discussed waitress.

maleah,
Don't be too hard on yourself.

Friends are O.K.

They just can't liven up that soup and salad the way herbs can.
