As you may or may not know (depending on how many f#&@s you happen to give about what I do with myself…which I realize is likely closer to 0 than any other number), I’m roughly 15,000 words and 6-8 chapters away from finishing the first draft of the novel bearing the codename “Project Macaroni”. As I said before, I really really really want to finish it before this weekend because, HELLO! Holiday here in the good ole US of A.
But, no matter how much I want to ignore everything besides basic human functions like breathing and, well, breathing, I hate hate hate the idea of going a week without posting anything new to Puddintopia. Just seems like basic blog abandonment, and even if it’s only temporary, that feels like a slippery slope.
SO! Rather than pretending that the internet doesn’t exist at all this week, I’m instead going to make silly, quick filler posts just so you know I haven’t forgotten that I do, theoretically, manage a blog. Of course, before you go nominating me for a Nobel prize or whatever, keep in mind that most of said filler posts are likely to consist almost exclusively of random pictures taken with my phone at some point the last two years.
Case in point, today’s thrilling installment, a picture of The Attitude wearing a mini fedora and a skull and cross-bones robe.
Seeing this picture today, though, it occurred to me that I’ve never really had a good image to bring to mind whenever someone happened to use the expression “like a boss” (which, clearly, is ubiquitous among us internet dependent). I mean, it could mean lots of things:
- A video game dinosaur at the end of a level with rocket-launching backpack and laser eyes.
- An anvil-jawed mobster nicknamed “Joey Bananas” whose favorite persuasion tools include a crowbar and a bunch of banana peels
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer (because, duh)
- Wonder Woman (plus also, duh)
As of this moment, however, that issue is officially put to rest. Henceforth, when I think of anything being even remotely boss-like, I will immediately draw this image from my mental media library.
Because if the kid isn’t rocking it like a boss there, then I don’t even know what life is supposed to be about anymore.
Feel free to discuss and even offer your own “like a boss” mental image suggestions.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go finish that novel…like a Boss!
