Mick still has it

This review of the Rolling Stones conert at the Savvis Center on January 27, 2006 is for all of those twenty-somethings that like to refer to the greatest rock-n-roll band in the history of mankind as the "Strolling Bones". Yes, I will admit most of the fans were discussing Medicare options before the concert started. And, yes Keith Richards had to sit down on the drum stage during the concert to rest his weary bones.

But, Mick can still hit the high notes, play the keyboards and harmonica all while dancing and prancing around the stage for over 2 hours at a pace that would dizzy most 20 year old aerobics instructors. The band played all the old favorites and rocked the house just like the old days. The concert came with all the usual accessories such as a light show and gigantic video screen, but the moving stage that brought the Stones to the back of the floor during the concert was quite impressive. The people at the back of the floor now had a first row seat - this combined with the song "Start Me Up" brought the aging baby boomers out of their chairs.

Alas, some things have changed. A young man sitting near me lit up a cigarette (the legal kind) and was promptly removed. This would have never happened at Stones concerts I saw in my younger days.

More about the sign in the women's bathroom

Since I have seen the sign first hand, what is interesting is...the sign is taped to the mirror which is right in front of the sink. So, you almost have to be washing your hands to read the sign. So, why have the sign in the first place? For those who do NOT wash their hands, unfortunately, there are plenty of women at work who do not, is not going to start now that there is a sign. But whoever did it, you must give them credit...quite decorative, eh?

Sign taped to Women's Bathroom


Evidently someone i work with (presumably
female) thinks that a gentle reminder is what's lacking when people use the bathroom and don't bother to wash their hands.

I think what is lacking is common sense - and of course the understanding that there are just some nasty-ass people.

How many people do you think will see this sign, and say "Hmmmm, you know, that's right - Dirty hands DO spread germs! I better scrub up now." Posted by Picasa

Pie Anyone?

yuck

someone here decided they wanted 1/2 a piece of pie - so they took the TOP 1/2, leaving the bottom crust in the pie plate for the next person.

I work in an office of misfits...

There is always something stupid going on in my office. The people who work here are some of the laziest, nastiest "normal" people I've ever met.

I mean, by looking at them, everyone looks pretty normal. But they way they behave - is scary.

We routinely have food sitting out free for the taking. A normal person would take the donut from the box, put it on a napkin and take it to their desk. Some people here will cut a small 2 inch chunk out of hte Krispy Kreme donut and take the little chunk. Twenty minutes later the same person will return for another 2 inch chunk. Bizzarre, yes - but the real problem is the other people may be cutting chunks off of the same donut - all with the plasticware they have already used to eat with.
