'putin' my life in order

Well, I just had a horrendous commute home. I was walking to the up-escalator at the Columbia Heights metro. My right foot slipped out, but I was able to dexterously shift my weight to save myself. Just as I was thinking to myself, "Wow, that was a close one. Good save," I bit it...hard. Zoinks! Don't worry, I'm OK, save for what might become a rather large bruise on my left knee. (PS -- What the f*ck do they grease the metro's floors with?!)

It's days like this that I am thankful for my creative (freakish) imagination and my coworkers, who not only are willing to indulge my ridiculousness, but even encourage it. We decorated the office for the holidays today and, I'll let you guess how I chose to contribute.

Did you guess it?

Yes, yes it is. It's Russian President Vladimir Putin adorned with Flock of Seagulls hair! 'Tis the season!

This is brilliant. Where can I get one of those Putin head templates to print out and adorn my work area with?

Putin with Flock of Seagull's hair really is one of the few (possibly very few) truly brilliant moves I've made. Please, copy and paste to decorate your own Putin.

Getting your hands on the Flock of Seagull's hair is a bit more difficult. It involved some photograph enlargement, careful cutting and a few strips of tape.

I think Putin would also look good with a Kid'n'Play-style flat-top, nyet?
