You’ve Responded!

posted by on December 13 at 15:02 PM

Thank you to everyone that sent in assignments. These are all the assignments I’ve received so far:

Teasing someone’s cat with yarn, helping behind the scenes at the Northwest Film Forum holiday party, helping behind the scenes at the Gay Men’s Chorus Holiday Show, installing an ice sculpture designed by Alex Schweder, babysitting a six-year-old who likes to go to Petco and stare at animals, babysitting for someone who told me I could watch their porno after the baby fell asleep, painting a hallway at a gay law firm, slathering wax on some women’s dread locks, gold farming with a World of Warcraft addict, raking the leaves in front of City Hall, building a sex fort in someone’s bedroom, painting an overwhelmed mother’s master bedroom, expressing someone’s anal glands (not feasible), raising 250,000 dollars for the Seattle LGBT Center (also not feasible), opening presents with someone else’s family on Christmas day…..

The couple that sent Dan’s favorite email (which involved driving drunk folks from holiday party to holiday party) just cancelled on me.

- World of Warcraft addict (hilarious)
- Painting overwhelmed mother's bedroom (actually helpful)
- Opening presents with someone else's family (hilarious)

Well, I think two good choices are:

gold farming with a World of Warcraft addict (gotta build up those job skills for the US eventual third-world status); and

raking the leaves in front of City Hall.

I say paint that mother's bedroom. She will probably be disproportionately grateful, plus painting is pretty fun.

Sex fort! Build the sex fort!

Help host the birthday party for 20 four-year olds, I tell you!

You might even be able to put the Community Theatre Camp training to use, if I can find a good bunny costume.

I'm sensing a poll in the offing...

What the hell is a sex fort?

Posted by PA Native | December 13, 2007 3:59 PM

I dunno. I figure someone wants him to help them pitch a tent.

So what, cleaning out my gutters and scrapping the moss of my roof wasn't good enough for you?

....or washing my windows?

find me a lawyer?

I suppose that would mean he'd have to bring his own pole...

Posted by COMTE | December 13, 2007 4:51 PM

I think we can assume from the comment about body hair during the Greenpeace activity that his pole would come with it's own undergrowth.

i saw the public intern catching a train to portland...he's kinda short huh?

Posted by Jiberish | December 13, 2007 5:12 PM

Nothing wrnog with short guys.

Posted by Malcolm in Sydney | December 13, 2007 5:26 PM

Besides making less money, being evolutionarily less attractive, being weaker, inherent inferiority complexes, etc

Sure there's nothing wrong with short guys.

Posted by Tall One | December 13, 2007 5:42 PM

I'm for the sex fort or the opening of presents. Preferably both.

Hey, you could wrangle my cats and clip their claws. And clean my fish tank! Neither has been done for ages, and they'd all appreciate it after the fact. I swear.

Too bad I've already broken up with my boyfriend. Otherwise you could do that too. (Heartless!)

Posted by Rose Red | December 13, 2007 7:08 PM

Rose Red, it's just as well you're already split up. You should neither text message break up nor public intern break up.

I've met the public intern. He's groovy and indomitable. I can't wait to find out about his next assignment.

You can drive me and my drunk friends around. Saturday. The Sorrento, followed by the McLeod Residence, followed by god knows what.

Posted by M | December 13, 2007 7:54 PM

Geez, I guess finding me a new bank wasn't SEXY enough of an assignment... go figure...

Posted by Kate | December 13, 2007 10:43 PM

Oops. I'm sorry to everyone who's assignment I didn't include. It was an error, not a personal vendetta against your assignment. I regret it.

@11 try making some calls to Seattle U or UW law schools, the clinics or profs might be interested in helping you out

Posted by vooodooo84 | December 13, 2007 11:22 PM

FYI: It's the Seattle Men's Chorus, not the Gay Men's Chorus. We do actually have some straight members within our ranks, and a lot of straight people who help out behind the scenes. ;)
