The Evil Eye... "Balushka!!!" LOL!
Yesterday, I'm looking at the picture of Rice and saying to cwd that it looks like the little sand dudes in Star Wars... and we both set about trying to remember what they were called. After a few minutes we give up and I calmly say... in voice just above the standard "office cube" volume "Any star wars geeks out there?" And it was only a moment or two before dude shows up from several cubes away... "Jawa...they're called Jawa" and he walks away with our thanks chasing him. There really is something weird and wonderful about working in a geek zone... although, every now and then you see a few minutes of "Office Space" and you get depressed all over again. :)
The Sun is doing the whole "spring has sprung" thing out there.... back up to double digit warm. Of course, the weather-nuts are calling for it to cloud over and ... snow. But, as my children remind me every day... the "weatherman is an idiot" so I'll wait and see. :)

The radio was talking again this morning... it does that...
They were blathering something about the Juno awards... that's Canada's Music Awards show. They were all over issues to do with indie labels versus the big records and some other crap... The issue for me was how they introduced the segment ... with a comment on how the Canadian Music Industry is suffering. Now, if they'd just stop comparing it to the US Music Industry every fricking time they open their "industry pundit" mouths... they might realize that the music industry is alive and well in Canada. Stop expecting the canadian version of anything to reach the same levels of mass hysteria that shit rises to in the land of guns and make believe freedom and people would realize that things are going very well in Canada, thank you very much.
A co-worker just bought an equinox... it's one of those "I wish I was an SUV" vehicles but it has no four wheel drive and essentially rests a SUV like chassis on a car frame. It's not the roll-over king that an expedition is or the gas maniac that an escalade is... However... it's still part of the problem. And I struggle to bite my tongue.
Have you been paying attention to the people George Bush is appointing to international organizations lately...
That guy he put in at the World Bank..."Paul Wolfowitz", architect of the Iraq War... and he's gonna head the world bank????
What do you bet Tom Delay gets appointed to be the Head of the Treasury or something... hahahahaha... geezus guys... that world bank thing is seriously fucked up.
K... time to go and be worker boy
(who loves ya!!!!)
