Spawnie's Life as a Retail Slut

I've been thinking more about this essay I have to write for work. I'm going to either do it one of two ways.
First way : I'm going to bribe my neighbors kid, she's 5, and have her write it for me. She'll write it on that paper that little kids use, with the really big lines, and the dotted lines in the middle, so they can make their letters the right size. Some of the letters might be backwards, and words might be mis-spelled, but that's ok, because she is not grading us on grammar or spelling. This one would be fun, but my boss would probably not like it, because she would think I wasn't being serious.
Second Way : Write it like a college essay. I'm thinking about writing a 30 page essay, on why I should be the employee of the month. I'll include a title page, and I'll cite all my sources. It will have proper grammar, and spelling. She said she wanted quality, not quantity, so that's why it'll only be 30 pages, instead of 50. Now I don't think she'll see that as being a joke, and me not taking it seriously, but who knows.
Let me know what you think I should do.

Hello loyal readers.
It has once again, been forever since I last blogged, so I figured I should probably do so, before I lose the few readers that I do have.
Last weekend, for my day job, I got to work at an auto show. "The Autorama". I guess it has been going on for 52 years. It was really lame. It was supposed to be a classic car show. Who know, that a '00 mustang was a classic car, I didn't. There were about 100 cars there, that shouldn't have been there. Blah. There were quite a few women there, that were half nekkidd. There were a lot of kids there, I thought they would have imposed some kind of dress code.
Spongebob, and Dora were there, so there were a lot of kids there.
I had to go to court last week, for a problem that happened at the gas station. The guy was on parole when he came in and committed the crime, so of course he's trying to fight it. Never mind the fact, that he's on tape, and there were 3 people in line behind him that saw him do it. He has a public defender, who, for some strange reason, has decided to fight the charges. It was the preliminary hearing, to decide if there was enough evidence to take the case to court. I got to testify.
It was my first time testifying, I had to take an oath, and sit in that little box. So the DA does her thing, and I answer all of her questions. Then the public defender starts his long, overdrawn questioning. He tried to get me to confuse myself, or change my story, it didn't work. If they had asked any questions about my past, they would have found out that I was a college student, whose major was criminal justice. Some of my course work required me to sit in court during trials. After the trials, we would go over them in class, and discuss what the DA, or the defense did wrong. So in other words, I made the public defender look like a moron.
The gas station is starting to do an employee of the month thing. Our manager wants us to write an essay, on why we think that we should be the employee of the month. Yay, who thought I wouldn't need writing skills for my job. The boss said that anyone who doesn't participate, will get written up. So now, on my day off, I have to write an essay, on why I'm better then everyone else. Next month, she is going to have the customers vote, on who should be the employee of the month.
More later, I'm bored, and this blog is boring.
