Swedish Fish & Other Anomalies

Despite having heard of them, I had no idea before 3:18pm today what a Swedish Fish was. I am now a fan. This is said whilst I tongue a bit of chewy Swedish Fish goodness from one of my molars. But why is it called a Swedish Fish? It certainly doesn’t taste like fish. So they shaped it like one? We don’t call it a Norwegian Animal Cracker. And why Swedish? Do they only have gummy, cherry flavored fish in Sweden?

I’m sure there is a logical reason, I just don’t know what it is.

We have a secretary here we call Man Hands. Her actual name, she says, is Lady. Yeah, like “Lady and the Tramp”. Lady. Swear to God. She is almost 6’ tall, rather solidly built with very long hair, lots of make up, a deep voice, an adam’s apple and man hands. Ms. Crabapple gave her an award today that is a certificate reading “Best New Secretary”. Okay, we have so much turnover here that practically every one but me is new. And best? Who voted? And for godsakes… “secretary”??? I do believe the term we use now is Legal Assistant, especially if it is a man. Do you honestly expect us to believe your name is Lady? Does that make it more believable for you? If that is the case, I’m changing my name to Thin.

I’m sure there is a logical reason for all this, I just don’t know what it is.

I am a bit … oh Christ… I’m a LOT tired today. I’m kind of foggy. However, I do not usually drink soda. I have (at most) one Diet Coke every other day and have been that way for almost 6 months. However, for some odd reason, I just noticed that there are 5 cans on my desk. One regular Coke, one Diet Barq’s, one Pepsi, a 7Up and a Diet Pepsi. I don’t drink Pepsi products. I haven’t had a regular Coke without rum in God knows how long. There is no rum here. I am not sure where all these cans came from on my desk.

I’m sure there is a logical reason, I just don’t know what it is.

Very funny about the "Lady" thing. You know sometimes I wonder why we are here, what we're supposed to do while we are here and how it is we really got here. Do we have a real purpose toward a greater good or are we just put here to roam the earth aimlessly.
I’m sure there is a logical reason, I just don’t know what it is.

I have two good friends who have a little game they play where they leave garbage (usually in the form of empty water bottles) strewn about each others' work areas. It's actually pretty funny-- and as most jokes like this go, it's escalated. One of them actually mailed a large box full of empty water bottles to the other at their home. The retaliation was to leave water bottles all over the other person's house when she's out of town and he's watching her dog. Fun. Maybe someone's playing with you this way. Or maybe your desk is just a convenient resting place for refuse. Maybe some surveillance is called for...

The "man hands" thing? I'm not touching that one. Not going near it. Lady? Mmmmm. Irony.

I will say this, though: Gummi stuff rules. Gummi=yummi.

Give me a break. I just woke up from a long nap.

Gummi=yummi... for some reason, that made me guffaw.
