PS - My job is safe :) We beat our earings estimates by 5 cents per share. That was a surprise--even for us.  10:26:04 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

I've got a great story about a jackass at work that I'd love to tell you, but I can't. Non disclosure agreements are fun stuff, you know. If I could tell you, however, you'd realise I work with the devil. That's right, the devil.  9:23:30 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

sensible erection v2: "quote [ A man in the produce section of a supermarket asked the clerk if he could purchase just a half a head of lettuce. The clerk said they only sold lettuce by the head, but the man insisted that he ask his manager about it. Walking into the stock room, the clerk said to his manager, "Some asshole wants to buy a half a head of lettuce." As he finished his sentence, he realized the man was standing right behind him, so he added, "and this gentleman kindly offered to buy the other half." The manager approved the deal and the man took his half a head of lettuce and left. The manager told the clerk, "I liked the way you handled that situation. Where are you from?" "Canada, sir," replied the clerk. "Really? I hear that's a great place. Why did you leave there to move here?" he asked. The clerk replied, "Oh, there's nothing in Canada but whores and hockey players!" "Oh, really?" said the manager. "I'll have you know my wife is from Canada!" The boy replied, "No kidding! What position does she play?" ] "  6:37:09 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

Voltaire. "I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it." [Quotes of the Day]  6:08:57 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

Q Daily News: "Wow, what a cool story, and one that I never knew anything about: in 1976, the owners of the American Basketball Association team the Spirits of St. Louis made a deal with the rest of the ABA to forego merging with the NBA, and instead, to collect one-seventh of the annual television revenues of the other ABA teams -- forever. They've made over $100 million from the NBA to date; with the new NBA television contract, they stand to make that much again in just over four years. Stunning, and awesome."  12:11:31 AM  permalink   Add a comment
