I love it when someone here at work gets stupid, gets himself with an AIM-borne virus that replicates itself across the network.

Communications are rather crippled now, as AIM/Trillian connections were ordered shut down UNODIR (UNless Otherwise DIRected).

If anyone's trying to reach me by AIM, you're currently SOL UFN (Until Further Notice).



That is all.

Apparently, I work with a bunch of vultures...

Not here in the Data group, where I park my carcass day in and day out, but over in the much larger Voice group.

Today there was a potluck. I brought in two plates of cookies from a local megamart, so yes, I paid my admission into it. As did quite a few others.
My guess is that the company threw in the buckets from KFC.

Well, thanks to a brief yet furious outage, we Data folks couldn't get up there quick enough (well, maybe less than a handful did). By the time I had a chance to go snag some food, all that was left of the lunch-type stuff were a few nachos and a spoonful of ziti.
All the KFC was gone, picked over, nothing... not a sausage (literally).

And here I am, without a lunch.
Oh, I have food here, but it's either cans of Pringles or a couple cups of nukable mac-n-cheese. Nothing of any real substance. And I refuse to go out and spend more money on getting me something to eat when I should have been able to get something at the potluck as I spend like $15 on the cookies, yet those who didn't bring anything got their faces filled.


Fucking annoyed by this, and rightly so.
Annoyed, hungry, and not bothering to eat now just on fucking principle.
Appreciation my blanched arse.

Two parties are the target of this rant... followed by an example of what these people are moving away from instead of striving to be...

Now I don't want to get off on a rant here... )

Addendum to a follow-up

Well, I would just like to say that I think that the homophobic morons from Kansas got their comeuppance yesterday.
Yes, they were allowed to gather and protest -- for 30 minutes. After that, they were led away by police a few minutes before the funeral began.
Some passersby, especially one with a large American flag in his arms, voiced their opinion directly to these loving folks. The fact that the police made them move along wasn't a big one.
Another point that I loved -- the mounted police strategically pointed the back ends of their horses at the protesters. One caller into a Boston talk radio show remarked that for them, it must've been like looking in a mirror and seeing a horse's ass.
To help ease tensions, there were police pipers congregated, and when the Baptists started to get loud, they just started playing, drowning them out.
And who said that the bagpipe wasn't a wonderful instrument?

Okay, folks. You've come here, you've said your piece, you were rightfully ignored and shut out.

Now go the fuck back under the rock from whence you came.
And grow the fuck up. Learn what it means to be a true Christian.

Idiots abound yet again...

This one goes out to the members of the Westborough Baptist Church, hailing from somewhere in the Midwest. I'm sorry if I get any information on this group wrong, as I can't find anything in any of the news websites about their activities.

I was planning on penning a nice rant about them a month or so ago when they were planning on coming to our fair state and protesting a public school because a student had won an essay contest by writing about Ellen Degeneres, a publically-known lesbian. Their protest was along the lines of the URL to their website -- God Hates Fags.
Gee, what a lovely Christian concept.
And they're showing their steadfast belief in that concept once again, coming to our area to protest at the memorial services of two local servicemen who have fallen in the line of duty. Not because they were homosecuals, mind you, but because they were defending a country that allows homosexual activities and relationships to exist.
What a slap in the face this is to these two fallen soldiers. They chose to disrespect two men who gave their lives to their nation, defending their rights to protest and cause said disrespect.
An amazing circle, isn't it?

Apparently these jerkoffs have the means and opportunity to travel around the country and stage protests. Okay, I think they have waaaaaay too much time on their hands. These people are willing to waste their vacation times from their jobs to do this, instead of going to the beach, or camping, or whatever. Protesting a military funeral is a vacation to these people? Come on now... you must have a better, more constructive way to pass your free time. Take your kids on a real vacation. Don't teach them to hate. That's real Christian of you. Love thy neighbor, unless he's a man with a better sense of style than you, apparently.
How about a counter-protest? Let's get the population of P-town and Northampton, fly them out to their church, and see how they like a picket line surrounding them.

I'm thoroughly convinced that Heaven has sections for different faiths. Over here, we have the Roman Catholics, with an annex for the Irish. In this corner, we have the Lutherans. Over by the pool are the Baptists (no piddling in the shallow end, please). Behind the door in the Catholic section we have the Episcopalians (Church of England, for those who didn't know). And so on...

You know what the problem with these Baptists is? They don't hold them under long enough.
(No offense to any Baptists who do not subscribe to the same inanities as the above-mentioned group. This is targeted at them, not Baptists in general.)

I would love to see what would happen if one of the jokers in this group suddenly realizes that he is gay. Does he tell anyone? Does he keep it a secret? Does he just disappear into the night? If it got out, it would be like blood in the water at a Great White gathering. (And I'm not talking about the band, either.)

In the end, folks, let me just say this to you: Get the Fuck Over It. Live and let live. You're Christians, by God. You just don't show it.
Thank you for teaching us that your God is the right God. Apparently my God, who loves everyone, is inferior to your God, who is selective about who he loves.
I don't believe in your God.
But you know what?
My God has a bigger dick than your God, so neener.
