Well, no Help Desk tonight as it’s Friday and we’re all off next week so the day went something like this:
10:00 AM – Stumble in late. Check email for an hour.
11:00 AM – Decide it’s too late to start anything before lunch, so pull some chairs up to the ol’ SE/30 and play some Shufflepuck Café.
12:00 PM – Lunch. And, OK, there were some beers.
2:00 PM – Return to the office and vow just to finish off that last game of Shufflepuck Café before gettin’ to work.
4:00 PM – Finish Shufflepuck Café Tournament of Death and realize, well, heck, it’s just an hour before quitting time so it doesn’t make any sense to start anything now…
Fortunately, someone in the comments of yesterday’s post wrote something so money that we really needn’t have even gotten out of bed. Frankly, we wish more of you commenters would make yourselves useful around here. You don’t all have to be witty. You could make some coffee or go out for donuts or something.
Setting an example for the rest of you slackers, commenter Rip Ragged came up with some absolutely filthy technology-inspired porn.
….her warm, moist vista engulfed my turgid Zune. “Ubuntu, ubuntu,” she repeated as she climbed from a husky whisper to a shrieking, wildly bucking crescendo, “UBUNTU, UBUNTU.”
I collapsed in her arms and murmured into her ear, “Welcome to the social.”
That’s either our first or second favorite dirty comment of all time. Probably second because it’s technically impossible as the Zune is actually currently incompatible with Vista (or maybe that just makes it dirtier). We won’t tell you what the other comment was but it involved Hello Kitty and the Japanese word for something very naughty.
So, flush with the warm glow of Rip Ragged’s torrid opus, you should be set for the next ten days. Those of you in the states, have a happy Thanksgiving.
For those of you elsewhere…
