Random Crap II

It's more random crap:

-It's 8:52, on a Friday morning, which means I should have been sitting at my desk for the last 52 minutes. However, I'm still in my boxers, it's 65 degrees outside and TFD wants to play, so I'm thinking 11:30 AM is more appropriate.

- As I may have mentioned, we have two office weird guys at work. OWG2 likes costumes. When I started, the Dockworker ensemble was his standard fare. Recently, he has been dressing like Indiana Jones, complete with the hat and leather jacket. I wish I knew the psychological significance of this, because I am A-1 on his list when he commences the inevitable workplace shooting spree.

- When the hell did Ohio get so funny? I've been to Cincinnati and Columbus many times and I never found the state even slightly amusing. Okay, maybe I laughed a little at Circleville's Pumpkin Festival, but that's about it. Yet, I keep finding blogs from Ohio that are hilarious: Shop Dungarees, God, people piss me off, and Dr. Zombie's Midnight Theater of Terror . I guess Ohio is the "Fart in a Space Suit" kind of funny, it's much more amusing if you aren't in it.

- I've noticed that some blogs have "members only" areas for selected commenters. I'm the curious kind, so I signed up for two of them. So far, I've been deleted from both. In the first case, I was deleted within 2 minutes of registering, while the second deletion took a few weeks. I imagine it is my Marxist leanings cause me to say that this is a good thing. As Groucho eloquently put it, "I don't want to be part of any club that would have someone like me as a member."

-There seems to be quite a bit of Blog Drama going on these days. The Sweetneys are battling their archrivals, the Cheeses, or something. This has lead to debates on blog policy statements, comment moderation, and what not. I guess I'm not sharp enough to fathom the subleties of proper blog etiquette. The way I see it is that a blog is the sole property of the blogger, who is free to do what they like with it.

I have deleted posts for various reasons, but primarily because they sucked. And I will delete more posts. I am constantly deleting my own comments because I proofread like a drunken immigrant on crack. I haven't deleted anyone else's comments because nobody has told me that I'm a huge prick and when they do they'll be preaching to the choir.

- I have invented a portable sockholder:

I'm really jealous that someone is hooky-ing from work and I can't. Being the receptionist and therefore inherently required to be present every minute of the workday blows. It blows poop.

And I don't even know what that means.

That dog is amazing. What else can he transport?

Ew! He's going to drool in your sock.

I have been to the "Circleville Pumpkin Festival" (I believe they call it the "Pumpkin Show" but I'll let it slide). I am not actually from Ohio - so a lot of red necks in one place makes me nervous. They had a hog calling competition up in that M'fer!

You signed up for my "private area" and you're still on there. Maybe you just forgot your password or something.

TIR-Now that I'm here, I realize that I should have made it the whole day.

broadsheet- Amen.

jen-I've been trying to teach him to transport illegal aliens, but I haven't had much luck with it.

fool-Yes, but it saves me the trouble of doing it myself.

scott-I missed the hogcalling contest in Circleville. I should have stuck around longer.

SC-I'll check it out.

Somebody needs to make a call

You'd fit in in Ohio, TFG. Biting wit and angry sarcasm are survival traits when one has to deal with the other 98% or so red necks that live here.

Besides, they say that more serial killers come from Ohio than anywhere else.

Not that I'm implying anything.

...and sock warmer.

Ah, I think you might want to visit the annual Pumpkin Chunkin over in Delaware-

Some good times, there.

As an almost lifelong DE resident, the punkin chunkin is a GOOD TIME.

And the sockwarmer idea is a good one, you might want to investigate a patent for that badboy there!
