Hai(ku)! My Name is (What?)…My Name is (Who?)… My Name is… Cousin Brandon: The Week in Twitter Haiku

Memorial Day weekend, and it’s hot as balls. I just don’t get what’s up with the weather anymore. We essentially have two seasons: winter and summer. Okay, I guess we have spring, too, which equates to a straight month of rain. Regardless, of tired of this shit. In other news, I have a job interview on Wednesday. Over the course of the past four months, this is only my third — third — interview. Considering the number of jobs I’ve applied for, my statistical average is god-fucking-awful. I’d ask the rest of you to wish me luck, but don’t waste your time. I’ll cross my fingers and see what happens. And let’s face it: if I get the job, I’ll just complain about that, too.

This two-week installment of haiku, from Monday, May 16, 2011 through Sunday, May 29, 2011, covers kid movies, the English language, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Mother Nature, Noah, the rapture, Trivial Pursuit, unemployment, ars poetica, golf, John Rich, Celebrity Apprentice, old age and BBQs. As always, you can find this collection here every Monday, or go on over and subscribe to my Twitter feed. It’s Memorial Day. Celebrate this great American holiday weekend by reading all of my bullshit.
