|02:28 pm - "I bet you'd do the same if they was you."|
The AEG and her one-year-old daughter are visiting us at work today. She's incredibly charming and playful, and I wish I could take her home.
Oh, her kid is cute, too.
She's running around and putting stuff in her mouth (the kid, not the AEG). This would normally be endearing, but I just read about another study which found that the average cubicle desk houses more bacteria than the events which inspired Let's Make the Water Turn Black (and here's an MP3 by The Sediments! You have no excuse not to know what I'm talking about!). I very much doubt that the squishy stress-relief balls here are any cleaner than the desks they sit on.
Oh, just FYI, the What TMBG Album Are You? quiz says that I'm Lincoln (big surprise, huh?), the Commonly Confused Words Test says that I'm an "English genius", and the Star Trek Personality Quiz says that I'm an anonymous redshirt destined to be eaten by something the moment we beam down. Apparently I suck, but at least I know the difference between there, their, and they're.

Actually, I just made up a study that shows the average one-year-old carries more bacteria than your cubicle & stress-ball combined! (I'm not certain about AEGs, yet, tho'.) All the better reasons not to have them. (one-year-olds, not stress balls.) Still, you should probably hose-down your office-space with a preferred bleach once the kid is gone.
Incidentally, the Star Trek character thingy I posted the other night that everyone else seems to be doing this week was originally discovered by my Mom. I don't think I'll be sharing the cross-stitch pattern one.
I'm absolutely delighted to be Will Riker. That probably says something about how today is going so far.

I scored "English Genius" as well. It did get tougher as you went on, but some of them were still fairly easy. I was particularly amused by "She has a (flare/flair) for gardening."
It's entirely possible to have a flare for gardening. I keep mine right next to the hoe, and boy howdy does it take care of weeds in a big hurry.

...and everything else, I imagine.
Yeah, I had the same issue. I knew exactly what answers they were looking for, but the surrealist in me usually wanted to click "D) All of the above".

See now, if I'd written the test, I'd make it "She has a (flair/flare) for attracting passing ships," just so the answer to one of the damn questions would have been "All of the above."
Also to cause maximum pain to test-takers.
Their, they're, Colin. It's not that bad. I was kinda inbetween Kirk and "is-to-be-about-to-be dead" redshirt, so either way, I suck, too.
I'm Geordi, and an English genius.
Wow, that test is scary. I had no idea where most of the answers were going, but it says I am "John Henry," which is my favorite album. Weird. Creepy. I also recieved "English Genius" on the English Test. I, as well, am a red shirt. Oh, well.
