#4297 – of mice and test men


a mouse has been spotted in our department; one of the supervisors at work pinned this wanted poster to the outside of his cubicle, and an email warning people not to keep food at their desk was sent out yesterday. i had an email conversation with my ol’ coworker ben about it while i was at headquarters and he was at his store…

me:i will hug him and squeeze him and pet him and love him and name him ‘george’…

me: “…and now i have the mickey mouse club theme stuck in my head.”

ben: “ha-ha! M! I! C! K! E! Y!   M! O! U! S! E!”

me: “who’s the leader of the club that deploys the COLTs and COW?

can you hear me?

can you hear me?

can you hear me now?”

of course, yesterday we also got an email about how blackberry service was down nationwide due to a problem that research in motion was having, and we had a similar email conversation…

me: “sounds like people will have to go without their crackberries for a while… obi-wan kenobi: ‘i felt a great disturbance in the force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced… i fear something terrible has happened.’ bahaha…”


me: “bahahahahahahahaha”

ben: “luke fruswapper?” (ben is a technician)

me:jabra the hutt…?”

me: “chewbacca the a-key?”

me: “milennin-network falcon?”

ben: “netace windu?” (netace is our point-of-sale system)
