Morning Brain Vs. Death Star
Posted by Sam at 10:49 AM

I've officially declared Fridays to be the day of untucked-in shirts at work. So, untuck that shirt everybody! Join me in corporate rebellion!

UPDATE: Hmmm... a coworker just informed me that, contrary to what my brain insists on, today is not Friday. I've got three devices on my person at this very instant that shout (visually) the day, time, and date. You'd think that one of these devices would be able to penetrate the morning-brain force field... but alas, much like the Death Star, its defenses are too strong. "It's defenses are designed around a direct large-scale assault. A small one-man fighter should be able to penetrate the outer defense." For this Death Star/Morning Brain analogy to work, we need to make a few replacements. Let's substitute "a small one-man fighter" with "a cup of coffee." "It's defenses are designed around a direct large-scale assault. A cup of coffee should be able to penetrate the outer defense."

See how relevant this is? Whoever took Star Wars out of basic high school curriculum should be thrown in the garbage mashers on the detention level.

"Listen to them! They're dying, Artoo! Curse my metal body! I wasn't fast enough. It's all my fault!"

Tomorrow, since all of 36 Hamp has the day off, I suggest that we watch at least one of the Star Wars movies and drink Mexican hot chocolate.

Well, hey, I just watched me some Empire Strikes Back last night. We've been watching the newly released wide screen boxed set that I got for pre-Christmas, as my woman hasn't seen them. Therefor...

...I'm disturbed that Sam feels he is like the Death Star, all shielded, but with small, vulnerable openings connected to vent shafts....*shiver*

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
