Sisyphus was a wimp

Sadly, the monkeys and typewriters hypothesis also applies to the crap I have to write for work - a bit of a double-edged sword, if you ask me.  Speaking of which, I found my box-cutter!

  1. for therapy, when writing boring reports, try to work festive phrases into the text. for example “hot monkey love” was one i tried to slip into a report that would be read eventually by congressional staff members.


  2. Oh you poor dear, may I offer you the use of my staple gun, so much more handy than the box cutter [quick re-load and draw for instance …]


  3. of the relative what…??? The suspense, it’s killing me!
    Also, you’ll be kind enough to not go all “please kill me now!” when I’m going to be reading. It’s a very personal taunt of my own current desires to do away with someone.


  4. miss M: Could be, could be. My DNA test was inconclusive.

    daisyfae: Wow. People actually read your reports? Wait, congressional staff can read?

    stef: Don’t you hate it when someone uses your stuff and returns it all fucked up?

    parenthesis: What does your staple gun fire? Rice or maize? (That sounded a lot funnier in my head)

    anne: I’ll send you a copy of the final draft when it’s done. You can bore your flatmate to death with it.

    peas: Ja. I’m experimenting with post-modern chick-lit.


  5. Is see you made it to the final phase of SAS Management Selection – Now that the escape and evasion phase is past, you need to just make it thru the psychological warfare phase.

    Repeat after me:
    My name is Kyk Noord, job title is scapegaot, employee no 679-89…..according the Labour Convention that is all I am obligated to say.


  6. nursemyra: C’mon. As it is, I’m barely hanging on by my fingernails here. I don’t think I’d last a week at Gimcrack.

    revo: If it’s all the same to you, I’d rather repeat “I am a little furry worm, with a furry tummy. I crawl across the marmalade and make my tummy gummy”. Drives everybody nuts.

    shebee: Oh, you poor thing. I’ll send you a photo. That should clear up your condition in no time.


  7. Bet you can’t wait to go over the report with management/client, so that you can “unpack” the issues.
    Here, use my box-cutter.
    I, on the other hand, did some fabulous writing today. The title of the masterpiece: Letter of Resignation.
    Champcola everyone!
