Comments on: You Must Choose: The Take Your Tabby to Work Edition A beauty blog blooming with fresh makeup reviews, swatches and beauty tips from your friendly neighborhood beauty addict Sun, 11 Dec 2016 01:59:47 +0000 hourly 1 By: Karen Fri, 20 Jun 2014 16:29:38 +0000 Aww, Alison! Tabs will be your virtual kitty. Despite his reputation he’s actually really sweet and loving. 🙂

Hell, yeah, I’d take it! I have the most insane determination and if it was my dream job along with all those perks, you’d bet I’d commute two hours there and back just to do it. If I loved it enough I’d just find a way to spend the two hour commute on my laptop doing something or find a way to make it manageable. If it was a job I loved and was passionate about, yes, I would take it.

2. The child, definitely. That doesn’t sound far off the way most of my airplane trips go.

3. 5 years with a cat who loved me. Unfortunately, my cat was a combination of “actively despises me” (scratches, bites, ignoring me completely) and she departed over the rainbow bridge within five years. I think five years spent with a loving companion is worth it. You never know how long your pet is going to live. Actually, if I had a cat who loved me that would just be amazing.

1. I would not take the job. I don’t drive (yet) but even if I did, I wouldn’t like to spend four hours total of my life each weekday in a vehicle. Podcasts and music or not, it’d be a drain. I also don’t have pets and don’t want children, so pet and child care wouldn’t appeal to me. I also really like my current job.

2. Despite my not being fond of children, I’d take the plane seat in front of the screaming child. Better one unruly human being than a potential many. I think I could purchase booze or in-flight headphones from the flight to better cope with the noise. At least the bathrooms would be clean and I’d have food and in-flight entertainment. Maybe the child could enjoy documentaries about cannibalism with me (actual film shown during a flight I was on).

3. I’m a more bird person and will think about this in terms of avians since some of them do live for 25 years or more. I’d choose the pet who’d live for five years. It’d be really sad when my companion animal left, but I’d know he or she would be happy in the years with me. For the more… cold companion, I’d always wonder if he or she was happy and if they liked me or was highly annoyed and only tolerated my presence.

I can’t imagine spending 4 hours of my life commuting every day- in my mind, commuting is part of the job (after all, you’re doing it because you work there). Too much car time, too much wasted time, no way!
2. The filthy party plane. I can definitely zone out in the presence of a rave scene, but as much as I love kids, 8 hours of relentless, up-close screaming would drive me to murder. I was on a flight like that once (only 6 hrs though) and it. was. the. worst.
3. The aloof 25-year cat! I love pets/animals but get annoyed by the overly affectionate ones. A long-living, independent kitty would be perfect for me!

2. I’ll take the party plane. Screeching kids = heart attack for Chelsea. (my resting heart rate is really high, it’s a weird condition. My normal heart rate is what a normal person would be if they were up and walking. So anything that raises your heart rate… mine’s even higher!)

3. My initial instinct is the 5 year cat. Quality vs. Quantity. In reality, being a cat lady, I’ll take all of ’em.
