Sometimes my job wins

Conversation with next desk coworker:

Me: Here are your papers back. You can have the rubber bands, too. I usually end up with four or five on my wrist by the time I get to the train.
Her: You know Sherry? Have you seen her with these up in her hair? (holds up black clip used to hold lots of papers together)
Me: Yeah
Her: I told her ‘Sheri, don’t be ghetto. Don’t be ghetto.’
Me: *laughing* Usually when I can’t find a hair thing, I look for the nearest writing implement to pull my hair up.
Her: Yeah, but at least it’s your hair you’re putting up. You didn’t have to buy it.
Me: Wow *laughing* *golf clap*

Times of Old

I received an anachronistic e-mail this morning from my brother in law reminiscing about the 50's. Every generation thinks the one before was the bees-knees

You want to know the really ironic thing about the ‘reminiscing about the past’ e-mails? You’re sending electronic mail reminiscing about a time when the Internet did not exist.

Eventually. . . .

I know this will strike people as strange, but I do not have a digital camera. I obtained my first cell phone just two years ago. I'm being dragged into current time, but damn it, I'm throwing a tantrum like any other 2 year old.

Anyway (I say 'anyway' a lot), I have a camera on order. I also have some super awesome hauls on their way as well. I'll even go back to my last haul from the nearby cosmetics shop, Windflower Cosmetics. You NEED to see my super awesome. . . .wait for it. . . . .DUCKIE ICE BAG! It's so sweet, you don't even know! I'm looking for things to bump into just so I can use it. Then again, it's me, so I don't really need to look.

I love comics. Juvenile, yes.

Then again, I've always said that there are three things that'll always cheer my day:

1) Balloons

2) Stickers

3) Cookies

I'm easy to please.


I'm sure I'm the only person anywhere who could knows where the title for this blog comes from.

"Ah hello! It's nice to see you all here. As the more perceptive of you have probably realised by now, this is Hell, and I am the Devil, good evening, but you can call me Toby, if you like. We try to keep things informal here, as well as infernal. That's just a little joke of mine. I tell it every time. "
~Rowan Atkinson, Rowan Atkinson Live (The Devil's Welcoming Speech)

It was my ability to recite this entire skit, front to back, from memory that I obtained the nickname of 'Toby' among a select few of my high school friend. Of course, these were also the same friends I used to joust with at 10:00 at night in the isles of the video store in which we all worked. I lived Clerks (to a degree).

Anyway, I've never been into making or reading blogs. . . .they take so much time! However, I've found that as time goes on, I've started finding some cool blogs to keep me amused. Fuzkitty will tell you that I talk (from the two long ass e-mails she's received) and I figured that there's so much stupid trivia in my mind, maybe I'll just start writing it down. This will be a mixed blog, but right now I'm really into skin care, makeup, and all things Asian. I, myself, am not Asian, but it's never stopped me before! I don't know that anyone will bother to read what I have to say but just between me and my 23 personalities, it'll be nice to get some information out of my head. Hopefully, one day, eventually (PLEASE!) I'll know what it's like for my mind to shut the hell up for five minutes!

Oh! Stupid-why-do-you-need-to-know-this trivia for the day: Both Giraffes and human beings have the same number of vertebrae in their necks.
