Friday Favor

Well, some of you mentioned yesterday that my momma must be pretty smart. First of all, I have to advise you all not to leap to conclusions: those of you who read my blog regularly know that, although I love her soooo much, Momma makes a lot of silly mistakes (she doesn't even get my name right half the time).

I realized that I don't actually know what my momma really does when she leaves me for hours at a time. So I thought I should find out.
"Momma--what is it you actually do?"
"Well, Jimmy Joe, for the most part my job consists of three parts:
1) going to boring, interminable meetings where people try to come up with new things to have boring, interminable meetings about
2) writing long, dry essays that quote lots of dead German philosophers
3) teaching randy 18- and 19-year olds, trying to get them to think about something other than getting into each other's pants for 2 hours out of the day."

Now, quite frankly, I think this sounds like kind of a silly job. So I gave her three suggestions for some better jobs:
1) finally brush the dust off of her Knitting For Dummies book that's been on top of the bookshelf for forever and become a
knitty mouse maker!

2) finally start that catnip farm that we’ve always dreamed about

3) become a kitty masseuse

She said that she wasn't sure that she could buy me enough mousies and Tas-tee t/d kibbles if she just had these jobs. So, I have a favor to ask of you all: what are some things my momma could do?
P.S. Chairman Mao tagged me for the 7 P's meme, so I'm workin' on that...stay tuned...

I have a great idea! She can bake fresh-made Temptations. You could have your very own Temptation factory right in your very own home.

I quite like the sound of her current job myself. FAZ

Catnip farming.
That could be big business! I see a winner there. Plus, we could all help!

I think the catnip farm is a grrreat idea... you could be the quality control snoopervisor.

I really love Daisy's idea!

Hmmm, I like your suggestions for jobs for your mom. I don't have any suggestions myself. I like my mom's job at the moment: she's a distance student, so is home lots to spend time with me. I know when we move back to Canada, though, she'll have to finish up the practical part of her studies, so she won't be at home as much. That makes me sad.

Hiya Jimmy Joe!
I want my Meowmie to be more creative and spend her days drawing pictures of me and my bro. I reckon everyone needs nice meezer pictures i their life! Maybe your Meowmie could knit some Jimmy Joes and sell them...maybe every home needs a woolen Jimmy Joe as well a Meezer Picture!

Your job ideas were much better than your mom's actual job. She should take you up on your offer.

We vote for the Nip farm!! Thanks for sharing your Mom with us.
Your FL furiends,

A nip farm sounds great, but I think your Mom better stick with her present job. She needs lots of green papers to take care of you properly.

Hmm...maybe a catnip co-op?

Oh, that is a hard one Jimmy Joe. Maybe your Mum could write blog posts for Mums that say they are too busy. Yah, I like that one - you could start at my house!

Mickey said...

HI Jimmy Joe,thanks for the welcome and visit.I like the nip farm too,but Mom says you need the green papers(and red & brown& purple & blue ones where we live) to keep life comfy.

hehehe, your momma's job sounds funny to me, too, but my momma thinks it sounds really superduper kool!
