Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Garlic bread!
So. For all the "The Bay area of California is the BEST!" people out there I have but one thing to say:
Taxis and rental cars are not public transportation.
For a "metropolitan census area" that large, I can't believe that the BART and Caltrain are considered to be decent when you have to walk something like 12 blocks between the closest CalTrain and BART stations. And there's no connection to the airport. Yet. It's almost as bad as Dorval in Montreal. And most of the CalTrain stations have little to no transporation in the Pennisula towns to get to your final destination once you leave the train. It's a shambles.
Give me snowshoes any day. Better yet, let me move back to Hong Kong or London.
Did you hear me!? YEAST!!!!
If I ever, ever catch you complaining about stock prices again, I won't hesitate to remind you that you had at least a 50/50 chance of being BREAD right now! Pumpernickel possibly.
Humans: Desperately in need of a universal bitch slap.
P.S. I would have been a cupcake. A chocolate cupcake with strawberry frosting and some little white sprinkles. Maybe a candle, too.
P.P.S. Mmmmmmmmm.... sourdough.

We're going to let you know, Rod Stewart!!
I <HEART> kung fu.
Tune in Tokyo!
I hereby proclaim judgement on all you heathen BASTARDS!!!
In the count of insidious crimes against marmotkind: 200
years of back breaking water fowl manacuring!
In the count of infectious giggling in a bad movie: 2 years with an overweight, full body tattooed dwarf surgically attached to your left knee!
In the count of not inciting a food riot in a nunnery: 30 days shaving my back.
That is all. It's all mang's fault. He showed me "The Scoop on Poop".
The air in this place has turned a bit rancid.
I think a few people, not to mention any names lilo, need to get over the fact that sometimes Shit Just Happens At A Company and licking it like a festering rectal sore in public is more than a little disgusting and mightily pathetic. Sadly, I'm guilty of this as well, but I think I might have finally come to my poor excuse for senses.
So please do us all a favour and stop with the exceptionally bitter updates about your former employer. Broadcasting to the world the fact that various people have left is more than a little de classe and announcing that a large number had been "forced to reorganize" is just stupid. You aren't a reporter, you sound like a vindictive thirteen year old girl trying to get back at her mum.
The fact that I, of all people, am telling you that you've acted like an ass and should just shut up should be just the teensiest indicator that you're being a complete git.
Boy. Some people were absent when God was giving out a sense of humour.
I point at my new employer. Today marks the end of week one.
I've managed to outdo myself and break any possible records(if there are any) in my forte:
That's RIGHT! In the first 15 seconds of the job I managed to offend someone enough to have them lodge a formal complaint with the HR department. I didn't even open my mouth. Nary a word, whisper, nor wink did I perform.
How good is this? Before I was technically an employee, before I was on payroll, before I had even met my manager, I already had a written reprimand in my personnel file.
I've written up a nice little skit about it, but my DSL link to my home machine is down at the moment and I'm out of the country. As soon as I get home, I'll put it up on the stupid pages.
Life is beautiful!
I'm holding a lil mini-contest. If you can guess what it was that got me into hot water, I'll buy you a present. Mail about it. I won't reply before Sunday though.
