Omegle

March 30, 2009

Have you guys heard of Omegle? It’s like what the internet was like back in 1996, when you would go into some America Online chat room and become best friends with someone because their screen name was wicked clever, but the relationship never really went anywhere because you were too afraid of possibly being killed. But you still miss those chats with strangers, right? Because I hope I’m not the only one…

Anyways, these random conversations are blowing my mind, and I’ll most likely be logging on all the time, just so I can have something fun and awesome to post.

Shiba

March 25, 2009

One of my reps recently got a Shiba Inu puppy, named Shiba. He may not have the most innovative name, but he sure is freaking cute.

I gave him that frog when he came to my office for a visit. Which basically means I’m like, his uncle who will take care of him one day if something were to ever happen to his owners [GOD forbid, because that would be horrendously sad…but I would have Shiba to help me get past the pain].

Time Waster Tuesday – Your #1 Song

March 17, 2009

So Time Waster Tuesday has been absent for awhile now. But for reals, you guys, we’re in the midst of a depression. You don’t have the TIME to be wasting if you want to keep that paycheck and job! That is super not responsible, and I don’t want to help you feed that bad habit.

That being said, go spend time on this site. All you do is tell it a month, day and year and you can find out what the #1 song on Billboard was the day you were born! Because of your time wasting disease, you’ll probably be asking everyone you know what their birthdays are so you can let them know how awesome / embarrassing / kick ass their song was the day they were born. Here is mine. I’m not sure what to make of this.

So, you know how this morning you woke up feeling all something is missing in my life, I have a hole in my soul and need to fill it? but nothing, not even a bagel or donut or muffin or even hash brown from McDonald’s, filled it? Even though that hash brown was, for lack of a better descriptor, THE BOMB.

Well, this won’t aptly fill your hole either, but it’s better than nothing!*

 

*I crack myself up.

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Cover

March 16, 2009

I know that this song is about 3 weeks late, which in internet years is about 5 years, but I just had to post it. So if you don’t like it, all I can offer you is a hug and a promise to try to do better next time.

Kay Pettigrew has such a wonderful voice, I find myself just rewinding this video again and again so I can have some sweet as cover music in the background while I do my whole job thing.

Check her out on her myspace page and get to know the gal. Maybe even download her CD!

Saucy Street Walker

March 10, 2009

This past weekend I went up to Stowe for some skiing. On the trip there, a bunch of us stopped in New Haven, CT for some pizza. And can I tell you that I formed so many enemies there? In a matter of 5 minutes in the lobby of a pizzeria, I got hated on.

First, I said that I’d never had New Haven pizza because why would I ever just randomly be there? I’m either in Boston or NYC…never New Haven. And about 8 New Havenians turned around and evil eyed me. Like I told them I took a poop on the statue of the town’s founder or something.

When we were told a party of 10.5 was ahead of us, a lady joked Oh there must be a kid in that group! Then I went on to say that children only count as half a person. In front of about 3 sets of parents and their children. Evil eyes. Again.

So once we were seated, I made a conscious effort to not say anything that would offend or cause riots at the nearby tables. Epic fail, you guys.

This table next to us was comprised of a father and his three kids; two boys, one girl. This man had no control whatsoever over any of his children, and just let them run all bat shit bonkers all over the place. The two boys armed themselves with butter knives and began having sword fights around their table while the dad chatted on the phone. And then there was this.

This man had a depressed, under-aged street walker with a fistful of twenties as a  daughter, sadly walking around the restaurant. Probably pondering if what she just did was worth the cash she just got paid. And it’s not like she’s gonna end up seeing any of that cash, anyways.

All the money probably goes to paying for emergency room visits for her little brothers who have superficial scratches all over their bodies from butter knife fights or whatever. But I guess that builds character. Which is good, because hookers with a heart of gold always end up going for more, leading them to a lavish lifestyle and a Richard Gere related romance. Movies taught me that.

I’m sure it will all work out for them in the end. Slash not. Whatever, New Haven hates me, so I can’t be bothered caring too much.

Freakin’ Cute

andrew

The other day, this little pup was in the lobby of my office building. My co-worker, Terence, bought him for his kids as a surprise.

Guys. Do you want to hear the most ridiculously awesome thing you’ve heard all day?! DO YOU?! Ok. Terence wanted the kids to name the puppy, and when he came in the next day, you know what he told us?

His kids named the puppy Andrew.

HOW ACHINGLY ADORABLE IS THAT?!

Bookmark this page if you ever feel sorry about your life or sad about your existence. Andrew will cheer you right up.

PS Andrew likes to cuddle and you can hold him in one hand. That’s what she said. But seriously, he’s a toy and I want to hug him all day.

Facilities Manager Makes A Funny

March 3, 2009

Greetings,

Taking a cue from the Fedex commercial and our goal to be ever greener,  our office has instituted Nordic Mondays.

Every Monday from now until Spring heat will not be provided at our offices.

Just kidding… We are working on the heating situation.

Heee-larious.
