this is actually from: Amy.Dowsek@dig.com - I thought it was an interesting take on an annoying coworker.

I don't even know what I am going to do here at work cause I work next to this girl who is constantly sniffing and clearing her throat and I have never been so annoyed in my life. It's amazing someone can sniff as much as she does. I think it's annoying and I wish she go get her problem taken care of cause it really gets under my skin but I try to ignore it as best I can.

OK it is Drodd again. Hi there. So how is it going. I am monday morninging it right now, trying to pound some coffee and junk and get things rolling. I have been going to a lot of Cubs games and going on the RoBoat a lot. I have not been inspired for a while. It is weird. I can go 2 months and do art and then have 2 months go by and not do any art. I wish my head felt clearer. I want do some art. The only fruit I really eat is fruit flavored candy. My coffee kind of smells like soup today. I wonder if someone put some bouillon in the coffee maker today.


Email Attachment of the Week

Joke of the Week

While working as a radiology technician in a hospital emergency room,
I took X rays of a trauma patient. I brought the films to our radiologist, who
studied the multiple fractures of the femurs and pelvis.
"What happened to this patient?" he asked in astonishment.

"He fell out of a tree," I reported.

The radiologist wanted to know what the patient was doing up a tree.

"I'm not sure, but his paperwork states he works for Asplundh Tree Experts."

Gazing intently at the X rays, the radiologist blinked and said, "Cross out 'Experts.'"
