overheard in the office so far this week...  
"I just rub the butter right on the bagel. I'm pretending it's someone I know."


Of Mt. Rainier, visible through the windows:
- "If it blows, we'll be the first to know."
- "And the first among the dead."
- "Ah, but will we know we're dead, though?"


- "He's so disingenuous."
- "Is that a word?"


My manager: "That's about as much fun as getting shot in the head."


"I'll be home around six. Don't let the dog eat that."


ETA: Oh, by the way, joy: I am no longer sitting by Annoying Cubicle Woman, *and* I am also out of hearing range of the senior manager's barking-dog clock. The one with a different dog bark for every hour. The one where, at noon, the Labrador Retriever barks twelve times.

Knock on wood for both of these.

ETA2: "Hey, I'm not a trained monkey. Not any more."

Is it a word?

*pokes you*

dis (to disrespect) + inge (From old Germanic Ingwaz, "he who is foremost"; Ing was a Norse and Germanic fertility god) + nuous or "nous" ('nüs, 'nausm, a: MIND, REASON: an intelligent purposive principle of the world, b: the divine reason which in Neoplatonism is known as the first emanation of God)

disingenuous = to disrespect the divine Neo (i.e., Keanu Reeves); also, to disrespect the fertile emanations of God (if you know what I mean), or of the God of Neoplatonism

English major?

I've just never heard of that word before, and am now feeling extreamly blonde.

Me: Oh yes, very English major. *grin*

You: But an attractive shade of blonde!

Just highlighted this morning and everything. Also, former cheerleader.

Fear my blondeness.
