Friday Odds and Ends...

Okay, a little bit o' meme-ing, a little bit o' humor, a little bit o' this, and a little bit o' that...

First of all, a sneak peek of some new blooms in my yard...

My Corner , if you'd like to take a look-see.

9AM Back to Work

Engineer: I have this weird beeping signal on my phone. Do I need to dial a 1 when calling this number?
Tech support guy takes the phone and hits redial.
Tech support guy: No. That is a busy signal.

10AM Coffee Break
The day after the company picnic. . .

Female clerk #1: Was that the new guy playing volleyball? You know the one that keeps trying to adjust his hours.
Manager: Maybe he just needs to wear a jock strap all the time.
Female clerk #2: Adjust his hours! His schedule! Everything is code for crotch to you!

10AM Project Meeting

Worker #1: Boy, you look tired...
Project Manager: Yeah, it's been hectic. I need some of that geico balboa stuff.
Worker #1: Uh, ginko bilboa?
Project Manager: That's what I said.
Worker #1: No, you said "geico balboa".
Project Manager: What's the difference?
Worker #1: Well, Geico is an insurance company, and Balboa is Rocky the boxer's--as in the movie--last name.
Project Manager: Ha! I wonder if he gets a hard time for that.
Worker #1: He's not a real person. Besides, I think what you meant was you needed some ginseng. Do you know what ginko bilboa is for?
Worker #2: Okay, seriously, how long is this meeting going to be?

Cat Hair

Cat hair on the bedspread,
Cat hair on the chair.
Cat hair in the casserole,

Cat hair on my best coat,
Even on the mouse!
You live and eat and breathe cat hair,
When cats live in your house.

What?? Is this reeeally necessary?
I'm trying to sleep here!!

I can always count on you for a good laugh! Those "overheards" just kill me! And the cat hair poem...frustratingly accurate!

See Marianne, I told you this was a fun blog and that you always make me smile. Dawn thinks so, too.

Your yard and your flowers are glorious. I have never seen lilacs. They are my best friend's favorite. Thanks for sharing.
