Political soapbox

Every now and then I climb aboard my political soapbox and spew. And sometimes others spew for me. Watch an interesting TV ad that MoveOn.org is trying to get onto the SuperBowl to encourage our government to prevent the escalation of troops to Iraq. If it doesn't make it, it still makes the e-rounds on email and on blogs. Good luck, MoveOn!

LiveOffice Conferencing

I'm pretty sure this is the coolest phone conferencing feature on the Web:

LiveOffice lets you hold and record conference calls for free. We're looking for a service for our new PodcastNOW! service for PGC.

I'll post again when I know what the quality sounds like... I have a feeling I'll be very happy with it, though.

Some lady jokes

This blog is OVERRUN by pink, so I thought I'd put a bit of girl in the content... I'm not usually one for forwarding the chain letters and such (I delete them halfway through the story of poor Johnny going in for his 4th round of chemo at the age of 5 1/2 and I don't feel all that responsible when I chuck it, even though I'm told I'm going to condemn him to death by doing so). But every now and then my mom sends me some good jokes in the form of non-chain mail letters, which is nice. So here goes:

Some for adults only!!!


She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box.
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton.

"Cash, check or charge?" I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase. As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse. "So, do you always carry your TV remote?" I asked. "No," she replied, "but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally."

I know I'm not going to understand women. I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root, and still be afraid of a spider.

While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication, Tom and his wife Grace listened to the instructor, "It is essential that husbands and wives know each other's likes and dislikes." He addressed the man, "Can you name your wife's favorite flower?" Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, "It's Pillsbury, isn't it?
(That one's just sorta sad...)

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up & down the aisles. The sales girl notices him and asks him if she can help him. He answers that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife. She directs him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later, he deposits a huge bag of cotton balls and a ball of string on the counter. She says, confused, "Sir, I thought you were looking for some tampons for your wife?

He answers, "You see, it's like this, yesterday, I sent my wife to the store to get me a carton of cigarettes, and she came back with a tin of tobacco and some rolling papers; cause it's sooo-ooo--oo-ooo much cheaper. So, I figure if I have to roll my own ... so does she. (I figure this guy is the one on the milk carton!)
(Serves him right for smoking, frankly. Thank you, P, for quitting!)

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?" "Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...

The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time." The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, "You should do it because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee. The husband said, "You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee." Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee." Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me." So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says.......... "HEBREWS"
(Now where does it say that the man actually cleans the coffee machine every day?)

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM."

He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.
The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.


Rabbits calendar

Thanks, B! As dependably usual, my brother Brett gave me the Browntrout Rabbits calendar for Christmas, which came late this year because I just went home last weekend for the ol' Christmas celebration.

The cover pic looks a bit like the agouti bun is thinking of having some fun with the blond babe he's got there, but that's just my own perception. =:-3

The calendar, as dependable as Brett is, is filled with adorable bunnies of all sizes. Was going to say "shapes and sizes," but they're all pretty much the same shape. How about "colors and sizes"? That works... Calendars.com, you rock.

Bloggers are mysterious creatures

So I've been hunting around the blogosphere just now for work (for Paul) and I'm wondering: Why don't bloggers make it easier to email them? A good number of them also don't have profiles. You'd think that professional-type bloggers' would get credibility out of having a bio or a profile of some sort linked from their blog. But some don't even have names. I mean, if someone can enlighten me as to a few good reasons a blogger of business issues wouldn't want their name or email addy on their blog, lemme know. I'm at a loss.

BoingBoing gets it

Today, the top post on BoingBoing.net is one I heard a few months ago -- it appears a deer and a bunny are best friends. There's a few shots of them playing and nuzzling here. My fave is probably the "bath time" picture because it shows the similarity of habits in these diverse species.

Gotta dig the cahones on the bunny's part to even approach the deer in the first place. We all know how skittish bunnies are to "y'all monsters up there."

Daily Candy's Piece of Work

Thanks to my buddy Amy, every now and then I get a gem in my inbox... So, thanks Amy and thanks Daily Candy. These are funnier since I've stopped the nonsense "they" call "going to work." Gotta love self-employment!

The office has a language all its own. Steal a commiserating look at Jim, then communicate using DailyCandy’s latest lexicon.

accounting terror - n. The fear that you will be punished for your inappropriate work expenses. (Suzie tried to expense a bikini wax. She’s in total accounting terror.)

apathy hour - n. What after-work drinks actually feel like.

bluetoothsome - adj. Used to describe someone so attractive that his/her hotness is not diminished by the wearing of a dorky Bluetooth earpiece.

CEOverkill - n. When your boss makes you complete a ridiculous task that takes an insane amount of time and will never be useful to anyone.

conference crawl - n. The incredible, physics-defying manner in which time slows down during a conference call.

golden paratrooper - n. Someone who is constantly failing upward and benefiting outrageously from his/her apparent failures.

missenger - n. A delivery person who inevitably arrives while you’re in the bathroom.

no CC-ums - n. The pesky e-mails that hit everyone and have nothing to do with the assignments, updates, or announcements.

promotion sickness - n. The queasy feeling one gets when someone really stupid gets promoted. (Rob’s such a kiss up. His golden paratrooping gives me promotion sickness.)

reply-arrhea - n. E-mail incontinence; the inability to stop hitting Reply to All.

super casual Friday - n. The act of coming to work on Friday wearing the same outfit as Thursday, minus cardigan and watch, which were mysteriously left somewhere. (When sending a messenger to pick them up, they arrive in a plastic bag sans note.)
