Just a thought to share...

I have a folder on my computer called "I_Am_NOT_A_Geek". It is filled with pics of people's work areas and spherical treehouses and instructions on how to watercool (or mineral oil cool-yeah!) overclocked CPU's.

So, I went over to a friend's house the other day. Resisted the temptation to order her to "Open the iris" when she asked who it was at the door...

I was doing the hard sell on why she needs to finish watching the first season of Stargate Atlantis so she can catch up on the second season before July. (Well, and so she knows who Ronan is...)

..and I got to thinking to myself "Self, you really need a folder called "I_AM_a_Geek."

...and it dawned on me. I DO have one. It is called c:\

My friend, bless her heart simply said, "Honey, it is OK, we love you anyway."

LOL. That made me chuckle, Cassy. Of course, I'm horribly sleep-deprived. Gotta love working for a company with printing deadlines! [Razz]

Mine is called 127.0.0.1. Add to that a few sizable bits of RFC1918 space. [Wink]

Does it have to be live poultry?

I ask because, while I have bitten the head off a rubber chicken, I'm pretty sure there is no chance of me ever doing the same to a real chicken (living or dead).

What about a zombie chicken?

Two rabbis, a priest, and an awkward silence after there's no intelligible punch line to this joke, walk into a bar.

So, I heard that Mike died, I think he got choked.

Alright now, that's the last straw, I'm calling the ass taxidermist to tell him to stop making hats in your size RIGHT NOW.
