Manic Monday #2

I have decided to see how long I can go without voluntarily consuming sugar. Not for any medical or dietary reason but because I feel the need to spice up my life with a series of pointless self induce dares.

These new pens I bought are just the thing I needed to finish my screenplay. Well that and a plausible third act.

Am I a party popper because I refused to go and sing “Happy Birthday” to a co-worker?
Absolutely I am.

4345798 – The number of times I have heard the phrase “swine flu” used today. I expect it to become a major excuse anytime a co-worker wanted to take a day off this spring.

I never think to order Jimmy John’s myself but if someone around here mentions it I start flinging money at them while screaming “Get me a #7” at volume 20.

Every foreign office of ours seems to be off this Friday but that doesn’t bother me because I already took that day off.

Today is Samuel Morse’s birthday. Have a slice of cake in honor of the man who turned the bored drumming of fingers into a whole language.

Honestly, I cannot get past the first sentence to read the rest of the blog.
OMG, I could never imagine! :-o

Me again, are you suffering the effects of the Swine Flu to consider such a thing?????

No, I am saving the swine Flu excuse for something really good, like I forgot to do laundry and have no clean clothes to wear to the office.

I love Jimmy John's. Turkey Tom on wheat bread w/ BBQ chips! And I must agree with Scrappy Doo...NO SUGAR?!

Oh, and I just wrote a post on the whole swine flu freak out :)

My Fifth grader made a bet with his Teen brother: I'll give up candy and you give up energy drinks. It lasted one day. Wimps, both of them.
