Dad always said that I was his favorite son. Maybe that's why he always forced me to wear the special shirt he had made for me that said, "Daddy's Fat Little Princess."

I don't recommend buying perfume for your wife at Wal-Mart--especially one called, "Truck Stop Bathroom."

There aren't very many ways to sneak a spider monkey past the tight security in my building. So far I've come up with six but only if the spider monkey is very, very small.

Todat at 1:00 I stood up and shouted out "SWITCH!". So everyone moved over one cubicle and tried to do that person's job for half an hour. While I hadn't planned on doing finance work it was certainly much better than Arnold who had to switch places with the "secretary" of one of the executives.

There's nothing like a three day weekend to bring your spirits up a bit--that and the big bag of money I just lifted from the ATM machine.

I have the idea for the next great TV Reality Show. With the craze for instant, viewer determined super-stardom (Fox's American Idol, NBC's Last Comic Standing and many others) and the current physical condition of the Pope...you guessed it: "NBC presents, Who Wants to be the Pope?. This hour-long weekly reality series will put the world's most aspiring Pontif wannabe's against each other as they battle it out for the big hat and the keys to the all-knew TRICKED OUT POPE-MOBILE, courtesy of the Discovery Channel's own, American Chopper.

I visited the Lincoln Museum yesterday and was surprised to find that ol' Abe was quite the innovator! Not only is he the only American President to hold a patent (it had something to do with beaches flatboats or milking game show hosts) but he also pioneered the modern tour bus. Of course gasoline engines weren't invented then so it was powered by slaves.

I realize that the above entry may have gone over the line and will surely offend all two of our regular readers. However I should point out that TDJ does not discriminate in any way among game show hosts, believing them to be at least equal with reality show contestants.

I'll be switching employers soon, a daring move. Of course I'll miss the people here and the copious hallways you can hide in to take a quick nap. But more than anything, I'll miss the Tuesday afternoon gravy bar.

The only problem I have with co-workers hanging sides of beef in their cubicles is that these are the same people who complained with I tried to organize a leiderhosen parade.

The best thing about the word "mature" is that it rhymes with "manure."

Septemberber 15, 2004
At the end of this week I'll be leaving an employer I've been with for nearly twelve years. The weirdest thing is talking to people I've had casual conversations with for years and know that it is the last, that I'll probably never speak to them again. At least I'll never speak to them again with my pockets bulging with pilfered office supplies.

I can't go into much detail on my super-secret life as a triple agent but I will tell you that Crispy Cremes are NOT made with extra riboflavin..

Yeah, I admit that I took the easy way out on that last entry. "Whenever stumped," so they say, "go for the riboflavin." And so I did just last week in a discussion with my manager.
BOSS: "Ya know, I think you spend too much time on the internet."
Me: "Well, yeah... RIBOFLAVIN!

Yesterday was my dad's birthday. What better gift than to dedicate an entry to a man who will never read it? Oh, wait... he finally has a PC and an internet connection. Which means he could possibly read that entry last April where I confessed to that "chicken house" incident when I was sixteen. Which means that I could be toast. Melba toast. Burnt Melba toast. With bacon. And a small glass of orange juice.

I had that recurring dream again last night, the one where David Hasselhoff and the Taco Bell dog appear to me, rambling on about politics, the environment, and the importance of eating a healthy breakfast. If anyone can explain this one to me, please email us.

We have used just over half of our storage space here on Tripod/Lycos, which means that somewhere around November of 2009, we are going to run out of room. But luckily, computers will have been replaced by tiny chips implanted directly onto our frontal lobe. And the world will be run by a renegade sect of Amish squirrel monkeys.

What with all of the career changes going on among the Daily Journal staff, I'm beginning to think perhaps we spend too much time at our jobs perusing the Internet.

Things are confusing as they are to be expected two days into a new job, learning about servers and processes and which anal probe NOT to recommend to clients. But pieces are starting to fit together (e.g. Lithuanians should try probe model BFB42-D).

As a Hoosier, I'm mighty proud of our collective ability to consider ourselves superior to those who live in Kentucky, Ohio, and most Washington politicians.
