  2. Oh you naughty one you! I hope that person appreciated your quick wit.

  3. Ahhh….so the decision has been made to move on from this Titanic it would seem. (or it has been made for you now, at least.) hee..hee..hee….

    Flee!! Flee!! The Cow-Workers are worse than brain sucking zombies….. they devour your very will to live. At least with zombies you get to come back as one! šŸ˜‰

    Just remember to take the damn sammich toaster with you…oh wait…it still have fleshy bits stuck to it from that guy you shoved in it, doesn’t it? Never mind. I’ll send you a toaster oven as a “happy new job” present when you start your new one! šŸ˜€

    moonbeam: maybe I should come and work with you then šŸ™‚

  8. I’m on leave of absence– that’s why I’m able to laugh. They won’t be able to suck the life out of me until I go back. šŸ™‚

  9. In the spirit of you being my Hero, I had a chance to use your spin on the world. This is from some anonymous ass wipe on Yahoo Messenger trying to communicate with me.
