The poll is likely going to be later than usual from now on. Somebody just signed on for a whole new workload.
pooplord -- Does not caring who won the U.S. Open make me a bad person? Also, did you know they do Thai dim sum at Rabieng every weekend? We've been over this and over this. Tennis sucks. I just spent hours going through old polls looking for questions about how much tennis sucks instead of writing today's poll. And no, I didn't know that about Rabieng - thank you. That's a must-go.
eideteker -- What redeeming qualities do the Star Wars prequels have?
Sitting through all three movies was worth that one shot of the Imperial Senate that showed all the different representatives in their pods in that gigantic hall.
The creepy pedo-vibe between Amidala and Annakin in Ep 1 shed a little light on the creepy incest-vibe between Luke & Leia.
Ewan McGregor did such a dead-on-balls Alec Guinness it was silly.
Fortunately, my mind has pushed all memory of those films into the deeper recesses of my brain. Only when I think about them very hard to I start getting glimpses of them back and man, don't do that to me. Now I'm thinking about all that oopsy-daisy shit.
eideteker -- Hayden: Panetierre or Christiansen? According to Google's suggestions, the other choices (not relevant to the primary and secondary Haydens) are:
renob423 -- does this mean there is no 256 character limit?It does. But I'm proud of you for only going into the 270's with all the freedom you've been granted. what is the meanest thing anybody has ever said to you and why is that the meanest thing? what did you do after they said it? what is the best comeback you have ever had when you were arguing with someone, and why was it so grand? what did the person you said it to do after? Jesus, this is pretty specific stuff. Okay, worst type of insults:
Straight to the point.
Backhanded (ala, "your hair looks great! It's nice to see you caring about how you look for a change!")
When it comes to comebacks, I:
Think of them and fire them out right away.
Think of them but chicken out on saying them.
Think of them too long after the insult to say them.
Questions in the comments instead of in the box?
I have recently accepted additional duties at work taking care of some assistant-like tasks for my boss. In a time of layoff threats, a gal's got to do what she can to make herself un-cuttable. In the two days I've been at it, I've lost about 90% of my slack time, and have unfortunately had to move offices. Reduced funtime aside, what's the worst thing about my new office?
My old office was in a back corner with a door awkwardly positioned so only people intending to see me saw me. My new office is between the receptionist desk and the kitchen, facing the lobby. I've seen more people in 2 hours than I'd see in a week.
Not only do I face the lobby, but the wall behind the receptionist and my doorjamb create a perfect frame through which someone can see the sides of my monitor and my face from the main entrance.
Now that I'm all visible and stuff, people keep stopping by not just to chat, but saying stuff like "oh, I thinking about this new project I want to start and now that I see you, I remembered you'd be great for it!"
Since I'm on "Executive Row", in the stretch of offices that includes the CEO and COO, my collage of the dozens of duplicate marketing postcards had to go.
