Today was a good day...

After working on a two-day shoot and tallying 26 hours of work (grossing $240!), I decided to pamper myself and take the day off. I slept, napped, took a siesta as well as a snoozer. It's now about 9:30 p.m. and I'm feeling musical. So I wrote a rap to celebrate a much deserved, but financially irresponsible, day off. It's to the tune of "Today was a Good Day" from Ice Cube.

Just waking up on a Wednesday, gotta thank God
I don't know but today seems kinda odd
Dog X let me sleep, not a peep
I think I heard him counting sheep.
Cause I'm a Hollywood Temp, I got no work
No cash, but least I ain't workin' for no jerk.
Polishin' two specs that I'll be pitchin'
Soon 'nuf my homies sayin' "That shows are Bitchin"
I got my breakfast, bran with two scoops
Guess what? Didn't take long til I got the poops.
With my colon now all cleaned out, like a down spout
I looked around and said X, "I gotta shout,
Today it is a good day."

To be honest, the rest of the rap was equally bad, so I'll save you from the pain and me from the embarrassment. Suffice it to say there were phat rhymes busted about NBC not having a show other than Sunday Night Football in the Top 20 (Tip: Not many words rhyme with Nielsen), not thinking about having to make another career switch and doing laundry. It's clear to me that not only can't I rap, but my life is so dull, there's not even anything to rap about. But at least no one asked me to dial the phone for them.

I have to say it was a good day.
