Some commenters yesterday voiced their opinions that we, the members of the Crazy Apple Rumors Site staff, were probably spending the week sitting on our asses, watching reruns of Battlestar Galactica (original version), drinking Hi-C and eating mounds of Fiddle Faddle (or Screaming Yellow Zonkers depending on where the commenter was from).
Nothing could be further from the truth.
In actuality, we’re catching up on a lot of backlog. In case you didn’t realize, there are a whole variety of behind-the-scenes tasks that need to be done to keep this site running.
Like stocking the vending machine.
Well, OK, Mark from United Vendors actually does that, but we have stand there and watch him and call dibs on the mini-donuts. And then for some reason the second Mark leaves the Entity buys all the Baked Lays and spends the rest of the day noisily devouring them in the break room. Then we go without Baked Lays for a week until Mark comes back.
It’s not a very good system.
Anyway, that’s not really the kind of thing I was trying to get at. Most importantly, we’re working on fixing the intermittent database error you’ve probably seen if you’ve been clicking refresh relentlessly in an effort to get the coveted 11th post.
When I say “we” I really mean “Masako.” The rest of us have been standing around watching her work and asking her if she needs anything.
You never know when she could want a beverage.
She’s shit out of luck if she wants any Baked Lays, though.
But rest assured that while we’re not so much covering the Apple rumors this week, we are working.
Except during lunch.
And designated breaks.
And when we’re playin’ the ponies.
And I had to run some errands earlier.
How… how are you?
