I was never a huge fan of the whining and weeping, though I have enjoyed some of her songs; and then there's the fact that she took Ryan Reynolds off the market, for which I'm not quite sure I can forgive her.
But then I found this video on YouTube, and my entire opinion of her has been revolutionized. To me, the greatest personality trait anybody can have is a sense of humor about him- or herself; and the following clip is not only a wonderful spoof of the song it covers, but a spoof on the usual dark gravity of Ms. Morissette's genre.
Not entirely safe for work, but by far the most brilliant thing I've seen in I-don't-know-how-long.
Could you just die?!
So anyway, the new job is going amazingly well... everybody is sooo nice, each and every one of them seems genuinely happy to be there, and the work isn't at all difficult but is complex enough to keep my interest, and the coffee machine (a Flavia system) is the coolest thing ever! I keep waiting for something bad to happen to balance out the unspeakable joy of my workday.
But I'm tired! All this exaltation takes it out of a girl!
