Man, there were scenes in the original involving Shelly Winters that scarred this boy/man for life.
Annamaria, I hope your GM job is safe (for the time being anyway). Nothing like adding stress to the Holidays, huh?
Smoosh was pretty pleasant. I had a chance to listen before webjay went down, again.

Yeah, I've never actually seen The Poseidon Adventure...but I know it's not a reality show! :)

My job is thusfar secure, since most of the job cuts are from plant closings outside of Michigan. Of course, when I get my layoff notice, the dear readers of BOMT will be the first to know!

Genuine exchange from lunchtime today:

Richard is sitting doing his crossword. Idiot at table offers help.

Idiot: "Stuck on anything?"

Me: (Reticently) "Yeah. Maybe. Erm... do you know an architect, six letters, John somebody... designed a famous hall in New York?"

Idiot: (Deadly serious) "Hmmm. I think it might be Arsenio."

Me: (Thinking he's joking) "Arsenio?"

Idiot: "Yeah. I've definitely heard of a place called Arsenio Hall."

What's worse is, he wouldn't accept that Arsenio Hall is actually a chat show host and not a famous New York landmark...

Oh my god, that makes me laugh so much it's just not right.

I think I would have just turned to the idiot and said "Arsenio is seven letters" and left it at that. Probably would have saved you a lot of frustration!
