Question of immediate import

By santeewelding ·
Moments ago, I saw a cockroach on the wall. It scurried downward, behind the monitor, too late for me to act.

Momentarily, it showed up with antennae twitching above the keyboard. I whacked it with my TR-recommended swatter. Not hard enough, or I missed. Scurried away, it did.

Absentmindedly, while reading some member dismissing us for talking about talking too much, I put the tumbler to my lips for another sip of sherry.


It had fallen in. It struggled against my upper lip.


Do we talk about talking too much?

Actually Loss of Sanity

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Loss of sanity

Always seems to happen long before retirement. When you work with Computers at the Hardware Level it's already happened.

Working as a Help Desk Tech just means that you never had any Sanity to begin with.

What happens after retirement isn't a loss of something you have already lost it's just a far more noticeable deterioration of the existing complaint.

Or so I've been told by Medical Professionals. :0

Wait a second...

You've started a successful thread about our long-winded threads complaining that we're talking too much about nothing in our threads?

Isn't that having a discussion about the value of a discussion that you hold without value?

Do you not see the irony in this, Santee? If our discussions are the insane asylum, this is the Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

you're the roach in the sherry, eh?

I fancy myself...

by dcolbert Contributor In reply to I see

as more of a Cheshire Cat. Friendly with a hint of malice, right Alice? (And frequently fading in and out of reality as convenient - that is not lost on me).

Whereas Santee would surely be perched on a Mushroom blowing pychedelic smoke-rings from a hookah and uttering riddles.

I'll be a hatter any day.
With a head this big, every hat is stylish.

I'm sure if we try hard enough...

by dcolbert Contributor In reply to Right...

We can find a fit for every party involved so far...

Although it seems as if Santee might contest my self-appointment as the Cheshire Cat, and instead suggest that there is a better role more perfectly suited to Chad and I.

(Just to be clear, I do not intend to imply Alice and the Jabberwock, though I doubt anyone would make that mistake).
