Seriously, are there no interior designers in hell? [Aug. 4th, 2011|04:48 pm]

Because I expected more than beige cubicles and putty furniture...

Oh, wait, no, I'm still at work! Which explains the appalling lack of heavy red drapery. It just FEELS like one of the outer circles of Hell. Because on top of everything else, we have no air conditioning today. And I'm on the sixth floor. The SUNNY SIDE.

Concentration is tenuous at best. I don't mind being hot and sweaty when I'm DOING something...but to just sit here in the stifling miasma of the veal cubes...blech. You know it's bad when you look at the clock and think O, just another hour until air conditioning!

So, to get through the day, I've been allowing myself a little surf every time I knock something off the to-do list.

I don't know if you are aware of the whole Comic Sans furor -- and while I don't go so far as to think it should be banned...yes, it IS a low-rent kind of font, and it's alarming to see how often it pops up in professional presentations. Although, this is America, and we took Cheese, cow's gift to mankind and...FIDDLED with it...until it tastes like cheese the way cherry cough syrup tastes like cherries. But by gum, it MELTS well and it's CHEAP as dirt. So, we DESERVE Comic Sans, really. And this just made me laugh. Boo-yah, Comic Sans:

And I learned something about myself today as well, other than I don't do well without air circulation: The phrase "auto cucumber" followed by "god donut" completely cracks me up. I have read text #6 half a dozen times, and it STILL makes me laugh out loud.

Ha, STILL funny. And makes me feel better for turning on auto-correct ONCE, thinking "why the hell would anyone USE this, it's completely bloody useless?" and promptly disabling it. Forever. Although now, I secretly want to turn it back on and start sending messages to see if I can come up with something better than auto cucumber.
