Random Thoughts For Friday, Dec. 1st And A MEME.

Yeah, so I’m feeling pretty random today. Maybe it’s because the yellow Wiggle is leaving the band because of some rare disease (I hope it’s wasn't because of Dorothy), or maybe because Christmas is a few weeks away.
Randomness on my mind:

I have no idea what this one guy at work does! For the last year I’ve been sitting about 30 feet away from this one guy who nobody knows. He shows up everyday and sits at his computer, never leaves, even for lunch it seems. Every time I walk by, he just kind of stares at me. I’ve even tried talking to him once or twice and he kind of brushes me off. Has anybody seen “Office Space”? I want to put a red stapler on his desk.

What’s that guy planning on doing with that cigar? I have a junk e-mail account that I use to sign up for newsletters or special offers. My wife and I stayed at Luxor – Las Vegas a few years ago and they continue to send me offers with some pretty weird pictures on them. The one I got today was the strangest - it has a caption of “Kiss a stranger.... It’s a long way to midnight and it’s up to you to make every second count” and the guy is showing the camera a cigar he’s hiding in his coat while a woman undresses.

Women talk 3 times more than men!? And then there's me - I talk 3 times more than those women (so my wife tells me.) Did anybody see this study?

Life Meme (thanks to radioactive girl)

1. What time is it? Miller time.
2. What is your full name? Billy Dee Williams (No, not really. I just think it’s a funny name)

You should hold a captioning contest with that pic... results would be quite interesting!

great blog!! found a new one to add to my reader.

Rob Barron said...

Funny, when I looked at the ad, I assumed they we just going out, so the woman is zipping UP her dress and the man is putting the cigar away, to be smoked later (perhaps after a big meal or a big win at the the craps table).

Of course, the idea of them just getting in is funnier.

Funnier still is the caption "WWCD? - What Would Clinton Do? Remember, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

radioactive girl said...

It's about time you did the meme (only kidding).

My husband almost never talks. I think it's because his mom never stops talking so it became part of his personality. I have a friend who's husband never stops talking and she says I have the better deal.

Deb said...

GAH! This is what I get for being bored LOL. I did my thing and MEME's on my site, linked back to you too (frequently actually - you are a read I swear by). Great post today (except for the flippin' MEME dude) LOL.

My husband talks more than I do at home. I talk all day for work - or so it seems - and talk constantly with the children. Poor man feels he has to make up the silence when it gets to be his turn. I try to make it companionable, but I think I usually just come off as frosty...

And dude? The cream cheese won't work on the moon - not enough gravity.

You'll definitely need to reinforce it with cheddar.

Sarah O. said...

I so agree with #24 (Anything on HGTV that involves a "reveal" at the end).

Thank God for TiVo so I can skip through the zany designer banter and get right to the reveal.

In the case of "neat", I zip past the mentally ill tearful banter associated with tossing out the beloved not-worn-since-Middle-School-sweater.

I may steal this meme. And your answer to #24.

InterstellarLass said...

Dude, I'm going to send you a bucket of KFC. You've got the Colonel on the brain.

And speaking of HGTV, when are you and the missus making your national television debut???

creative-type dad said...

InterstellarLass - we've been checking the episode summary's and the one we're on isn't listed yet. I'll definitely let everybody know -
BTW- KFC should always be on the brain...

Sarah O. - Go for it! I must admit, TiVo'ing to the reveal seems a little sinister. I must try it.

Bec of the Ladies Lounge - when's my moon cabin is built. I'll make sure you're the safety inspector. I wouldn't want my house to fall.

Deb - wow! I've never been sworn by. BTW- MANBitch?! lol!

"I have no idea what this one guy at work does!"

My husband had a colleague like this. The guy stayed at a consulting job for about a year, at the rate of upwards of $200.00 an hour billed to the client company. It took the client company a year to find out. Nobody seemed to know what the guy did.

My husband is really chatty. He was yakking at me while I was trying to read your post, as a matter of fact. Sometimes when he travels for business I just hold the phone away from my ear and let him yammer on. and on. and on.

Mrs. Chicky said...

Hi Bubba!

Seriously, what is that man doing with the cigar? And why, from far away, does he look so much like David Beckham but from up close not so much?

Jenifer said...

Ok, maybe she's not getting undressed. Maybe she's getting DRESSED.... and he's going to relish the cigar in the "afterglow"


Ruth Dynamite said...

I don't mean to alarm you, but maybe the Office Spacey guy in your office was hired to keep an eye on YOU? (cue Twilight Zone music)

sunshine scribe said...

Ya that cigar guy is up to something.

And building a cabin on the moon souns so reasonable

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the meme. And the cigar. Woohoo!

Betty said...

Oh my goodness, even before you mentioned "Office Space", I was thinking of the same thing!! Too funny!

Gee, I wouldn't have guessed the KFC at all. D'uh!!

And the guy with the cigar and the woman about to undress? Maybe he's pulling the Clinton-Monica technique. ;-)

creative-type dad said...

Ruth Dynamite - You may be right. Maybe I'll buy him some chicken for Christmas.

Mrs. Chicky - Bubba says
"That doesn't look like Posh Spice to him with David"

junebee - my wife does the same thing to me - except I'm don't have to be on the phone. I could be standing right next to her...
