I am the worst employee...

I turned off my computer so I would not be tempted to read blogs and other such things while I am supposed to be studying. I did. Honest. But I had to turn it back to to share just how MIND-NUMBINGLY BORING this damn manual is! I want to stab my eyes out to relieve the pain of reading this stupid thing.

What am I studying, you ask? Only the Pesticide Applicator Training Manual. You know, the one that spent 26 weeks on the NY Times bestseller list? Come on, it's the book all your friends are talking about! The new must read! Or maybe it's just the stupid thing you are responsible for reading and knowing if you, for instance, want to measure out the naturally occurring fungus (that's everywhere in all soil and isn't in any way harmful to people and I don't know why I have to have an applicator license to use this stuff when I could grow it easily by just holidng a petri plate open for a few minutes outside and then incubating) we apply to our soil to prevent seedling rots , thus avoiding chemical pesticides.

Ugh. I was supposed to take it last month, but I couldn't get through the manual in time. Remember a few days ago when I was talking about how I left science? Yeah. I'm REAL motivated to study.

Your blog made me think of Bill Fitzhugh's "Pest Control". So funny that I have read it a couple times. If you are ever in the mood for a fun read check it out.
