Things I like about being the only one in the office: * I can look at any web page I want providing I remember to clear my history and caches when I leave 🙂 * I can do really stupid chair dances when iTunes is playing techno and nobody can look at me strange. Things I dislike: * The phone rings every 5 minutes, and I usually have to answer with “They’re not here right now” or “I can’t give you a price on that, may I take a message for one of our sales reps?” * I can’t get … Continue reading →
While assembling my new Chobits “Chii” figurine for my monitor top, I realized that the figure can be assembled without her skirt, leaving her standing underneath an umbrella in the rain in just her sailor shirt and panties. With a pleased look on her face, for that matter. With that in mind, here’s a poll: … Continue reading →
I don’t plan to talk much about war today, unless it involves 2″ vinyl figures on click-bases. However, I had to re-post this from frankensteela‘s journal. I mean, really, I had no choice 🙂 —–snip—– Optimus Prime is heading out to the Middle East with his guard unit on Wednesday to provide fire protection for airfields under combat.

This is obviously a con weekend – I am very incoherent this morining. . . . I mean, more so than usual. Smarty pants.

Contact trenn to see if he has duplicates of the last two XXXenophile cards I need for a complete set. Offer trades. Build actual badges for all Badge Wars … Continue reading →

It is 60 degrees outside… and I am stuck inside. There’s got to be something work-related I can do outside… maybe the newspaper racks all need painting, or something. Here’s a belated welcome to our little LJ community for rhaps and shrewlet. Now they’ll discover we have an entirely new way to pester them. Yesterday, I did 21 hours’ worth of work in 13 hours. My head hurts, and my stomach’s upset, but I’m so happy it’s over and that the sun’s shining that I don’t really care. raininva got me the cutest set of Lego Star Wars models last … Continue reading →
I’m typing up a pamphlet on selling strategies for work, and I hit this passage: Client: How soon can you get us the product? Seller: What time schedule would be suit your needs? … and I’m immediately thinking, “Look, it’s the Question Game!” Client: Are you sure you understand my needs?

Seller: What kind of cookie would you like? … and so on, and so on. … Continue reading →
