Good to know that there are more "Thursdays" than there are Jason movies.

In honor of Arnold's campaign - we must be able to create an appropriate drink for the occasion. Any suggestions?

with a side of Richard Pilaf (HA, thought no one would notice didn't you Richard :p )

Good idea.

I just saw a news headline that said "Ah-nold teams up with Buffett". They are referring to Warren. I was hoping it would be Jimmy.

lbaker

Jimmy Buffett as ahhhnold's running mate - what a concept :eek:

After the week I've had I'd love to drink myself stupid .... but for lots of reasons, one of which my problems will still be here waiting for me and I'd still have them to deal with plus a roaring headache besides, I'll stick to my usual cherry vanilla coke. Make it a double please. :eek:

I like the idea of the Fruit Loop...I'll be ready to try one tomorrow :)

I think I need a Fruit Loop to get going this morning - a big glass for me, please! :)

Welcome to Tyah the cutie pie!

I'll do another Idiot of the Week:

Back at work again, the word goes around that all defence personnel must have a flu vaccination last Friday or not leave the base. The whole base was quarantined and no one allowed to leave. More than 2,000 people needed to be injected and we were all told to line up outside the medical centre and have a shot, or sign a disclaimer.

Then we get an e-mail: any personnel with subcutaneous (sp) injection experience please report to the health centre. Oops.

Then another another e-mail: disregard the line-up, the vaccine hasn't arrived. Oops.

Ummm! What do I want?? Decisions, Decisions decision...

All this CA. stuff has my head spinning, and to boot
I got a 5% paycut, because our governor reneged
on our signed contract from 2 years ago.

I think I will keep it simple. How about a nice tall
Glass of Ovaltine or Bosco mixed in milk. : )

Logan
08-13-2003, 08:37 PM
Richard, I'm ready. Whatever the drink of the week is, I'm in (as long as it isn't brown liquor and doesn't have coconut). Can you handle that?

I've actually had a good week this week, but it has been long, already. My boss has been in town until tonight and we have driven many, many miles!!! But I am happy and grateful to be gainfully employed and with a company that wants to help me be productive!!! Heck, I'd even go for some champagne!!!!!!!

Sorry I didn't put my order in yesterday, but I would definitely like to try one of those Fruit Loops.

It has actually been a pretty good week, the boss is out of town on holidays and the office is nice and quiet. Although I did try to work from home yesterday and I found out that Emily will help herself to MY popcorn when I am not in the room (and even when I am in the room :rolleyes: )

:D What a much needed grin this gave me. I can just see us all lined up and Richard leading us in the hokey pokie. I didn't think anyone even remembered this dance(?) any more! Thanks for the grins!!!
Put your back side in... put your back side out... Put your back side in and SHAKE IT ALL ABOUT!!!!:D :D

KYS,
i feel your pain..that proves it only happens to NICE PEOPLE.....

choco milk for you.

LOGAN,
you get the 'quote of the week'award-on the days i feel like NOT going to work i remember when i quit my job and moved furniture for nine months, i earned one third less and worked 100% harder..KYS.....I hate fractions and percentages..

A&M,
lol, yes you did....and that shows maturity...
thank you....want a caramel apple?


Babo,

froot loop for you!

ETS,

froot loop for you...

MOFF,

LB,
we should adopt the Hokey Pokey as foreign policy....:)

Lament of the day.

Do not pick up a white cat while wearing a blue polo shirt.

And do not eat your ham sandwich on the way to work....you'll have to wear your badge over the
mayo spot until you get into the office.


DONE!!!!

lbaker
08-14-2003, 12:46 PM
Richard, serves you right for putting mayo on a ham sandwich, everybody knows you put MUSTARD on a ham sandwich.. would you put mayo on a hotdog for goodness sake :eek: ;) :p
oh I know, goodness has nothing to do with it :o

gini
08-14-2003, 12:51 PM
Laurie, I think Richard was doing a test run on the loopy drinks before he went to work....and he got the mustard and mayo mixed up.

Richard, hope you have a REALLY large badge.

Is there a non-alcoholic Fruit Loop? I'll have one of those:

Maybe Orange Juice and Cranberry Juice and Pineapple juice, a bit of Ginger Ale with fresh peach slices on the rim and a maraschino cherry on top? :)

The nuts'd have to be on the side ...

;)

catland
08-14-2003, 12:57 PM

I'll dance the hokey-pokey to that:D

Yes, but you have to admit, it sure beats real life sometimes, doesn't it? I never used to look forward to Thursdays before, but I do now.

Umm, how nice, Karen will join us this week!

Been off PT because of work related stuff. I've been working at a remote site trying to get the computers going. Some of them got hit with the latest virus.....I have a techie guy in here today so maybe won't post too much and will read all the posts in this thread later.....

Give me a fruity thing please......

hi,

well, it works this way....
you ask for a drink, tell stories that will make people laugh, you laugh, we laugh, you order more drinks, laugh some more, tell some more stories and laugh some more-but you have to really laugh...amd then it's time to go home, if you are at work.....

the FROOT LOOP is the drink of the day (described at the beginning of the thread.) You can ask for something different or even suggest a DOTD!

a froot loop for slick....
p.s.ditch the technie;)


so my funky chicken is about the same as the hokey pokey....

DONE!

robinh
08-14-2003, 04:14 PM
Just give me a plain pepsi. Would love to drink, but not worth getting sick for. Of course in a cyber bar, I wouldn't get sick - OK give me a fruit loop. Munchies too.....wow, this IS the place to be today.

Don't have any funny stories today. Just another long day at the nasty old office. Waiting for the weekend (that can't come soon enough for me).

Well, we're open every Thursday (and since its Thurdsay in Australia while its still Wednesday here - we're sneaky and open a day early).

The only requirement is that you have fun. We usually make up a DOTD (drink of the day) - but you are welcome to order anything you want. Richard, our bartender, can be very creative if you just want to give him an idea of what sounds good.:D

So pull up a chair and have fun:) This week we seem to be making fun of the California governor's recall election while at the same time dancing the hokey-pokey.

This recall election is VERY serious out here. I mean, just look who is running aside from Arnold........134 other people including LARRY FLYNT. HOW could you ever make fun of Larry Flynt?

Just think what he could do for our beautiful state.
[oh, I can't even think about it!)



:D :D :D just in case you thought for a moment I was serious!

RICHARD

Mickey and nachos.....
glad your name is not Bill G.?

RH,

one froot loop....
when you finish come back for #2....offices will make you drink.....


Cat and Gini,
refills?


the hokey pokey can make you thirsty...

and the Official Dance of the State of California is......:cool:... the hokey pokey...


lol, the election is serious, but you cannot help but laugh.....it is our Circus and we plan to make the most of it.....

I KNEW we were good for something!!! ;)

It works just as well for me on Fridays. The bar is still open because it's only Thursday in the USA :) Another fruit loop if they're still DOTD!

I've already done Idiot of the Week, but here's this morning's Odd Spot from the paper:
- - - - - - -

A German man of Polish origin lost his driver's licence after failing an alcohol test but his dog passed with flying colours, Koblenz police said. The 47-year-old drunk failed to perform any of the required actions, but his West Highland white terrier executed them all perfectly.

Oh, btw...here in the San Fernando Valley you'll drive down the street and see a 'movie production ' being filmed.......the funniest thing is to see that it's NO ACTORS you have ever seen and the gals seem very well endowed.....hmmmmmmmmmmm

Yeah, are we talented or what? We can do two things at once!

Richard, I'm ready for the refil of my cherry vanilla coke now. I see NY and Canada are having major power outages. Seems odd to me that that worm hit the other day and now this.

Anyway, I want to drink a toast wishing all those without power are reconnected fast!

Frooty thing OK but too sweet. Work still not going well, so as the song goes

Ariana Huffington paid only $732 (approx figure, not to the penny) in income taxes. Well of course, she had book writing research and expenses.

But what does this have to do with Thursdays? Let's all bring our income taxes over to Richard and compare notes............
