Lies, Lies, Lies

It doesn’t take the team from CSI Miami to work out that things have been a bit quiet of late, not only here on DonkeyBlog, but all over the blogosphere. I’m not gonna be apologising for all you other slackers at this time, but for mine, please understand that I have been suitably engaged in a great maelstrom of untruths which have been draining me of all the late-night energy I require in order to release the Demon Donkey of a night time.

Y’see, my time at Saving the World HQ is fast approaching its end, and so I have been engaged in that great pursuit of lies, yarns, slander and hearsay known as job applications, which takes considerably more effort and angst than the usual collection of lies, yarns, slander and hearsay that one commits to the page when developing posts for the Blog.

So, after spending sordid late nights seducing my new, sultry companions, such as Terms of Reference (or “TOR”, as I affectionately call her), Key Responsibilities, Desirable Attributes and Core Qualifications, there’re really no ‘porkies’ left in the bag with which to lay down an appropriate story about how Donkey’s most recent wander through a Delhi subway resulted in him attending a swanky, high-society party in Delhi’s most exclusive suburb at which he was hit upon by Ashley Judd.

So I’m really sorry about that, but next week I’ll be in Pakistan managing peace talks between the US and the Taliban Secret Command, and in the quiet hours, after negotiating for village workers’ rights with the WTO, I’ll see what I can throw together.

The important thing is that I still want you to drop by; perhaps, for the newcomers, browse around and enjoy a bit of Donkey Gold, and for everyone else, please leave your thoughts, insults or discussion topics in the comments box … or at least just have fun.

Perhaps we don't need CSI Miami, but Warrick Brown of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation would definitely be of some help. Really. Then maybe, just maybe, you could introduce him to me :-) Anyway, while I wait for your next entry, don't let Mrs Donkey catch you with Ashley ;-)

Pure Donkey Gold. More! More!

Just that you would take out time from your busy schedule as playboy and world peace negotiator to sit down and write what you have for your fans is remarkable.

Thanks, Donkey. Keep up the good work,man.

Hmmm, a likely story Donks. I think that you’re unemployed and have to sell your computer to a notebook wallah for 3000 rupees on your way to becoming a dancing bear on the streets of Agra. Looking forward to hearing of your adventures and remember, don’t bite the tourists.

Good luck. :)

I was lucky to have been able to give the impression of being a half-wit in any interview situation, "one door closes and another slams in your face!"

It must be a trying time.

Noooooooooo!!!! You have to introduce Warrick Brown to me, if ever!!! Boobs is prcatically a married woman! Heh heh

Anyway all the best in your job hunt Donkey. Will keep you in prayer

Ladies Please! Warrick's his own man, he makes up his own mind. True, he often comes by to consult on "matters of the heart", and I guess I could put in a good word, but, y'know, is it worth my while?

Oh Donkey, I'll make it worth your while for sure. Hay, carrots, apples - you name it, you got it! Oh and maybe I'll introduce you to a couple of she-donkeys too :-)

Donkey you're such a good player! You can create ex-novo a crime scene where there was no crime.
I love butterflies, too!:)
