Loser Confession Time

On the way to work I was listening to the radio and the girl was saying how lame her old roommate was because she would rip out calendar pictures and frame them as art.

Loser Confession Time:

I have a Thomas Kincaide Calendar in my bedroom. (intact, but hanging on the wall in a wooden frame)

I pulled out the kitten pictures from a calendar and hung them on my little girl’s bedroom wall.

My office was so plain when I moved into it at work, that I pulled out all the pictures from a vintage truck calendar and hung them on the walls.

Today, the blessed virus was still attacking my computer at work and I spent several intimate hours with an IT guy. After awhile he asked me which vintage truck from my office wall I had in the garage at home.

Loser Confession Time:

“None, I just like vintage stuff, my office walls were too plain and I haven’t gotten around to painting, so I hung these.” "I do like the blue and yellow truck the best though…"

He then turned on my computer and asked me if the kitchen picture on my desktop was mine.

Loser Confession Time:

“No, that kitchen is not mine, it’s just a picture I like to look at – kind of putting it out there in the universe that I would like that kind of kitchen.”

He then told me that he knows someone selling a vintage fridge.

I told him that I like the ones that are new, but that look old.

He started to sink lower into my desk chair as a way of escaping the crazy office lady.

HAVE I TURNED INTO THAT CRAZY OFFICE LADY?? - Like the lady who decorates everything with cats, or the one who has hand knitted mouse covers???

When he was all set repairing my computer he noticed that my icon was a vintage travel trailer and this time he didn’t really say anything, just kind of looked at me.

 “No, I do not have one, in case you are wondering, but if I did, it would look like that”, I said before he could ask.

He left pretty quickly after that.

I have never felt like such a LOSER. (in the last 8 hours anyway)

I swear my house is NORMAL!

If you consider THIS normal!

Ok I am an expert on this particular subject because not ONLY am I myself in IT but I'm also MARRIED to a proverbial "IT guy". And, in my expert opinion, there is NO WAY that an IT person is an accurate measure of loserhood. That said, if being a loser is wrong, I don't want to be right. ;)

This was awesome...no loser behavior at all. Although I believe we've determined our similarities might make your loser tendencies mine as well. ha ha. Great post! :)

I thought I had already commented on this post. Oops! I absolutely love that you love the pictures so much, you cut them out & hang them. You are not crazy! You are you and that is perfect!
