My god those bunnies are aliens!

Who am I kidding - at times (and by that I mean most no all of the time) my job can be the equivalent of Haemorrhoids. (I don't know what Haemorrhoids are but they sound pretty painful)

I quote from a brief sent over by a client

"We want to promote disco dancing at the centre. Something along the lines of 'if you like to boogie come and strut your stuff at Disco Dancers - the funkiest dance class around. Bop like your favourite pop star...' you get the idea."

Sigh. And to make matters worse I've been asked to start working on Christmas 2006. It's not even Easter yet you consumerist pagans! For a client by the way that won't let us shoot with Volkswagens because (please read in a Manchester accent. Think Daphne from Frasier) 'OOh not Volkswagens. I knew a girl who had one once and I didn't like her very much.'

Hard to argue with logic like that eh?

So how does one stay sane in such situations?

I present to you Angry Alien. And will say nothing more!

P.s Suggestions on how one can top "Park the Herald Angel sings? will be most welcome!

I can never finish reading your post without laughing and wanting to comment for the first sentence itself. I couldn't go past the first para, this time as well. don't know what Haemorrhoids are but they sound pretty painful my God. you are a piece of work.
Let me finish the rest and come back. (that word verification thingy is a pain, real pain now, it is second time I am trying)

Your line can go like this
"Come to where Prabhudeva learned his steps"

Falstaff said...

Shoe-fiend: thank you. Thank you. That was brilliant. I particularly love the soundtracks - there's something about hearing the Star Wars theme as sung by bunnies that it is strangely moving.

Tell me about it. I'd break out on my own but for the morons one gets as clients.

God I don't know which I hate more - your blog or your new look. Is that slouched out chick meant to be you???

Gee anonymous! I'm so sorry... I feel so terrible...what should we do? I know!! How about you don't read my blog anymore?

Terri said...


I hope nasty, uncalled-for, anonymous comments don't send you into a writing slump.

I am reminded of a story. Many mooons ago when native Indians were not so peripatetic as they are these days, a good friend of mine decided to visit the lights of Paris.
Some one asked him " Yenna Mani (Mani being his name) Frenchellam Theriyuma?"
Manis Response "Theriyadu than. Avanellam Tamizh kattundutta Indiakku varan?"
So it is time they found out about Prabhu Deva, Shilpa Shetty, Mumtaz (The tamil one) and Ragasiya!
