Manic Monday #42

Nothing makes the day go slower than knowing that dinner means bacon wrapped dates and sangria.

I just realized I left something on the printer.  There is a decent chance it will still be there tomorrow, unless the printer gnomes got to it.  If you work in an office with a communal printer, you know what I am talking about.  You could make it to the printer in record time and sometimes your stuff has already disappeared.

Something tells me my office may not be pager friendly.  And that something is that it is not the year 1996.

Nothing shocks my coworkers more than when I take 10 minutes in the morning to straighten my hair, rather than throwing it up in a clip as usual. So remember, the simplest way to shock and awe is minute grooming.

I know geography pretty well and I don't think Chicago is north of the Arctic Circle.  So could someone explain to me why the sun sets at 4:43 p.m. making it seem like the world has been plunged into eternal darkness.

For me, it's not just minute grooming. It's getting a haircut, period.

No lie, I haven't had a hair cut since August - of 2009.

The chick BUTCHERED my hair and it is now back to the length I like.

I begann counting the ceiling tiles in my office once. I stopped at 5500 (about a third of the way).

Perhaps that's why the aliens don't land and introduce themselves.
