Just got this e-card from my good friend Mike.
Thought this card seemed appropriate somehow — Happy New Year, and better luck in Nachos 2009!
About 9 months ago I got a pre-paid AT&T GoPhone. Apparently the number that I got was one that belonged to a woman who, for reasons unknown to me, has fallen on what seems to be hard financial times (perhaps the reason why she doens’t have her mobile number any more). Since the time I’ve had the number, I’ve received many messages from bill collectors, schools, car warrantee providers, etc. all trying to reach this woman. I’ve been diligent about calling back these people and letting them know that their contact info is out of date so that they won’t call me back. Well, this morning I got a message from a gentleman that knows this woman, I assume. I wouldn’t do the message justice by trying to describe it, so here it is for your listening pleasure.
Warning: There are some expetives within, so if you are at work, you may want to use your headphones.
I go out to eat lunch quite a bit and I’m often asked what my name is when I order. Most of the time the person behind the counter gets my name right, “Lance”. On occasion, however, they hear something different. Here’s a running list of my many names:
- Rants (my personal favorite)
I’m in the middle of cleaning out my network folder here at Nanogen today and I didn’t recognize one of my folders, simply named “fwt”. Hmmm… Upon opening it up, I immediately recognized the contents. It was my “F” With Tim project folder! I decided to do a little desktop wallpaper replacement for our, at the time, Software QA guy. He liked Natalie Portman quite a bit at the time, so I thought I’d jazz her picture up a bit with the likeness of a fellow co-worker using a bit of Flash and the benefits of Active Desktop! Here is the result.
