The Wednesday Random [Mar. 11th, 2009|10:01 am]
terribleturnip
I just sent an e-mail to a supplier, who finally gave me their decision on a matter, which means I will get five fewer "can you give me an update" e-mails in my Inbox tomorrow. Which I referenced in my reply to him, and I ended the e-mail "My Inbox thanks you!"

Which now sounds dirty. Is that just me?

It's spring and my mind is not just going there, it's built a condo. I've always found it odd that we blame spring on being the time when "young mens' minds turn to..." or that we're feeling particularly randy this time of year..."well, it's spring!" Since fall, for large mammals like ourselves, is the rutting season. Really, we should all be charging around all fall, jumping on each other, renting porn, barely able to concentrate...after all, spring is when the babies get born, since finally food is plentiful and weather is kind. Is it the birds getting it on, that does it to us? I'd hate to think it was all of those baby bunnies and baby lambs...that's icky.

I'm loving the Honest Tea/Honest Kids line of beverages. I picked some up when the lovely Matilda was a guest a while ago, because I'm a firm believer that just because you're visiting people who don't have kids shouldn't mean you have to drink WATER. But now I have decided that they are a perfect size for an afternoon pickmeup, and unlike an adult sized flavored non-soda beverage, they're only 40 calories. Plus it's a juice pouch. With a straw. And sucking on something at work is just funny.

Speaking of that, we've been working on a private label beverage here at work. We made up a bunch of names, narrowed it down to three in focus groups and then set the trademark lawyers to check out the names. One of the things they do for their omgHefty fee is make sure the name doesn't mean anything bad in another language.

Yeah, you guessed it, we struck comedy gold. It's a bottled beverage and here's what I got to say at a meeting when my boss revealed that our favorite name meant "cow teats or nipples" in some obscure dialect: "Hey, perfect marketing campaign...Suck on this!"

Oh, I'll be funny right up to the day they fire me...

Spring is randy because of all those flowers having sex. Pollen everywhere.
