senoritafish: (cfo no clue)
Me: (raising an eyebrow) You're playing Othello against a cotton candy eating Tyrannosaurus named Marvin?

Him: Yup. And losing. Badly.
senoritafish: (data laugh)
"Mom, what do you look like if you're tow-headed?"

"Well, it means you have really light-blond hair. If your friend Connor's hair got a little longer and he got it really bleached out in the sun this summer, he's probably look tow-headed."

(Silence - thinking a bit)

"Oh."

"What?"

"I thought it meant your head looked like a toe."

  • How those "stepometers" from McDonalds work and what you could measure with them.
    "Yes, Pete, I suppose you could use it for that, but where would you put it?"

  • The two definitions of prairie-dogging (this occurred shortly after the earthquake the other day).
    PH: (thinking of the first definition) Were you prairie-dogging?
    DP: (thinking of the second definition - eyes very big, and slightly indignant) No, I wasn't! Why are you asking me that?!

  • Naked bungie jumping:
    Me: I could not do that! Parts of me would get left at the bottom unless they were secured by clothing.
    PH: Well, there's really not a big jerk at the bottom...
    Me: No, not unless you're standing down there.

    Zing! I don't get to do that very often. XD I think he actually blushed.

  • Following some talk about the recent cicada hatching back east, PH left the lunchroom with:
    "Aaah, damn bugs! You know they're part of that terrorist network - Al Cicada!"
    Darn it, now I'm never going to remember the real name.

He: So those market research people called back..
She: yeah? What did they ask about?
He: Mostly what new programs we watch.
She: And you told them.....?
He: Good Day L.A. on Fox. Then they asked why.
She: Well, they're funny...
He: No, I told them it was for Jillian Barbieri's boobies.
She: What?! You didn't!
He: Then they asked what sports channel I watch. I told them Fox Sports for the NFL show on Sundays.
She: (Wincing and knowing what's coming) Why?
He: Because Jillian does the weather for the football games. Then they asked what would get me to tune in to the news if they advertised it.
She: Let me guess...
He: Jillian Barbieri.
She: (groans) Was this a guy or girl asking questions?
He: A guy - I think he was laughing.
She: Well I think I know what that got filed under.

He does it just to bug me. If he hadn't been driving, I'd've monkey-knuckle punched him in the arm.

At the office yesterday, T. was giving V. a hard time for leaving her pen by the fax machine; he had picked it up and was using it to get people to sign a petition for some union thing and she demanded it back. He said something about putting TEN on all of his stuff so it didn't get lost. I started to say "Is that your intials?" - I was going to make some asanine comment about them spelling a word, and to my horror, my tongue tripped and I heard my mouth saying "Is that your NIPPLE?"

There was complete silence for about 2 seconds while I attempted to sink though the floor and my ears nearly caught fire, then all the cubicles around me just erupted. "Can we quote you on that?" yelled S. Honestly, I have no idea where that came from. I did use my breastpump just before lunch, but transferring my own to T.'s is a bit of a jump.

My tang got tongueled up.

What started it:

The Big Boss quoted:
"We aim to please." .........Charlton Heston, NRA

I said:
P.S. Rick is quoting the president of the NRA? - use a pun, go to jail.

D:
Yeah, I'm sure Rick knows ol' Chuck Heston is one of my heros. I think (my old boss) made me take his likeness off my wall in the office, though...

Me:
If someone in Stats can have that guy from the "The Practice" plastered all over her office, I don't see how Charleton Heston could be offensive - though I suppose it could be seen as a political thing. I personally have Buttercup from the Powerpuff Girls and various Dragonball Z
characters liberally sprinkled over my desk and walls.

D:
Office decor has not been an issue in the post-Doyle days, but they did tell us at training that offices are not considered 'public spaces'. Although if I were going for the cartoons, I'd have to go with Spongebob Squarepants and his starfish pal Patrick, since Beavis and Butthead were
cancelled.

Me:
Spongebob is pretty darn righteous!

"If nautical nonsense be something you wish,
then drop on the deck and flop like a fish!"

I mentioned I watched Spongebob at lunch the other day and K. said I could be excused because I had small children. "Oh no, I watch it when the kids aren't around," I said. From the look she gave me, I think she was thinking of a therapist she could refer me to.

D:
I've had my share of people look at me kinda odd when I have brought up a cartoon anecdote. I guess I'm not fully in sync with my cohort.

V:
I'm thinking that K. doesn't have the same odd sense of humor as the rest of the lunch crew. I've made a few jokes to her too, and I've gotten that "huh" look before.

Me:
Not all of us are slightly insane.


I guess I am waaayyy out of sync! Hoo-rah for being the cohort outliers!

Why is it that some people think if you're past a certain age, you should no longer have fun watching cartoons? I think they tend to be the same people who are skinny because they just "forget to eat."
