Science (Teachers) Are Wrong
I had a random flashback of a scene when I was in Junior High School on St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. I had a teacher named Mr. Edwards, a black male teacher. He once told the class that “animals does not break natural laws.” Male animals in any species are not attracted to male animals. There’s no such thing as homosexuality. That is strictly a human choice, and “it’s...
You're Not My Uncle?
Boss’ Son: Why you’re not my uncle?
Me: Because I’m not related.
Boss’ Son: Do you have to be related?
Me: No, but it’ll look weird.
Boss’ Son: But you’re cool.
Me: Why thank you. I appreciate your thoughts.
Boss’ Son: You know, if you’re my uncle, you have to make sure I’m happy.
Me: Yes, I would make sure you’re happy.
Boss’ Son: Good. *pauses* So, can I get your laptop?
Boss’ Son: But you said you’ll make me happy.
Me: Yes… IF I was your Uncle. But I’m your mother’s employee. And she would say “NOW GET!” *points to the door*
Boss’ Son: But I want to call you Uncle!
Me: I ain’t stopping you from calling me Uncle, you’re still NOT touching my laptop, Slick Rick!
Manager: Can you log in and tell me what's wrong?
Me: Sure. *looks into logmein* Let me recall the name...
Me: I got the name. Fawn.
Manager: Fawn? Why do you call my laptop Fawn?
Me: It's a Disney Fairy. Since your laptop is a portable, I called it that.
Manager: That's stupid. Why would you call it Fawn.
Me: Because I once called it "Zazu". In your native lanugage, it's an insult... even thought it suits you, ma'am.
Manager: Do you forget who pays you?
Me: Did you forget who makes sure your business is running so you can pay me? :)
Thought Remixer: Offline
Today, I took my “flagship” blog “Thought Remixer” offline. In it’s current form, I can’t stand to look at it. It looks unfocused and messy. With no updated blog posts (the last one was very popular, however), and posts that seems to belong elsewhere, I decided it’s time to cut off some of the pounds off the site. While I don’t necessarily have to...
Signs of getting old #1
Boss' Son: I need a mouse.
Boss: Can you lend him a mouse?
Me: I can't keep track of all the mice in the house.
Boss: Then lend him one from one of the computers.
Me: That one don't work well... well, okay fine. *grabs mouse and gave it to Boss' Son* Just plug it in, wait a few minutes and-
Boss' Son: I can't wait a few minutes!
Me: It's a figure of speech. Fine. Wait a few seconds and use it. Is that better?
Boss' Son: Okay. *leaves the room* why do I have to wait a few seconds? I can't wait a few seconds!
Me (shouting): You can't wait a few seconds!?!? When I was your age, COMPUTERS DIDN'T EXIST! *to boss* Oh shit, I'm getting old.
"Give You Away"
My son: Don't you like me?
Me: Boy, hush.
My son: If you don't like me, it's up to you to give me away to a different mommy.
Me: Is that what you want??
My son: No, that's not what I want. I want to stay with you.
Me: Baby (hugging him), I would never give you away.
My son: And I would never give you away to another kid. I'll keep you, and that's my point.
Android Orphans: Visualizing a Sad History of... →
understatementblog: The announcement that Nexus One users won’t be getting upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich led some to justifiably question Google’s support of their devices. I look at it a little differently: Nexus One owners are lucky. I’ve been researching the history of OS updates on Android phones… With this being said, I’m a happy owner of a Nexus S 4G because I...
