my theory is that someone was turning the connections off and on manually throughout the Box of Cobwebs aborting the line and killing the bots. Still didn't get a bag though.

I always thought the "bots" were just links to the "I want one" page, but I guess there's actual code bits running on botnet that autobuys for people.

The more I know.

The refrigerators in my office have signs saying they'll be cleaned out "every Friday," but doesn't state a time. I'm a little worried my lunch will get thrown away before I get a chance to eat it today.

Neither did I. Hard to start the day without it.

Lawn service puts piece of paper in the mailbox.

There seems to be a tiny dead bug in the globe on the light.

How do they get in there? Can't they smell the death? Should I put a warning sign on it? Dear bugs, you can get in, but you can't get out.
Should I clean it now, or wait until all the tiny flying guys are gone for the winter?

btw, how do you spell nat? (as in tiny, non bitting, flying bug that likes to fly around your head)

I was in before the light monitor this morning, so just turned on my desk light.

I forgot that it was still on until a minute ago when I wondered why it was so BRIGHT in my cube.

Electric heat? Because ours is highest in the summer with the AC.
Although the basement has electric heat.

A coworker won $150,000 in a scratch off lottery ticket on Sunday. She took yesterday off to get the ceremonial giant check, and is back at work today acting exactly the same (she is still not a morning person).

This would be more mundane if I hadn't included the first sentence.

Workers at a Costco on Long Island won the mega million this year.
That was enough money to quit.
I would think if you worked there and wasn't part of the lottery buying group, you would be a little mad.

I wouldn't be "mad," I'd just hunt for the nearest high bridge.

presumably your life was pretty good b4 the other guys won the money, and it didn't change. i think it would be more productive to start thinking of ways to part the winners from some fraction of their winnings.

Stopped for coffee at a Wa-Wa intead of 7-11 this morning; they were out of half and half so I used light cream instead.

Grumpy 'til the day I die.

I removed the quotes. Probably it fits one of the won definitions. I wondered as I wandered.

Next door neighbor never hires anyone with a license and insurance when he has work done.
But, dang, this morning a crew showed up in a gardening truck and his roof is gone. New roof is going up fast.

We have been waiting for our roof guy to call for two weeks!

There is something to be said for the spanish guys in the truck. They show up.



why so much roofing work? Hail storm, then a hurricane.
Our roof needs replacing, but the first date was early dec. Hubby decided he would rather have spring. He climbed up onto the roof, it isn't awful. The insurance guys only looked at the garage roof, which is much worse.

But we have a piece of soffit and trim missing and we need that taken care of before something moves into the attic! As soon as we said spring for the big job, we fell of the radar on the necessary small job.


I don't think anyone thought about roof damage with the hail storm. It was the hurricane that made people call. Geeze it was only a category 2 hurricane!
