Blogging at 2AM is Rough

June 10, 2009 · 15 comments

My apologies, dear reader, I don’t have much to say this evening.  I just got home from work and my brain feels like mac ‘n cheese.  I feel like a wizard who’s out of magic.  I’m digging real deep right now, but there’s just no energy left in me.  My powers of analogy are failing me.  Say it ain’t so. 

If I count the hours right, 9AM to 1AM is a 16-hour day.  Holy shiz, batman.  All my good words and turns of phrase went into emails today.  I pulled off some really good ones – that whole “pen is mightier than the sword” thing isn’t wholly applicable, but people who have no reason to do what I ask them to do did what I asked them to do today.  Pretty cool.  I got an email today from the HNIC of corporate governance for a pretty effin large firm that said “…but what about what that major firm’s analysis?”  I replied – in a much more complex fashion than this: – “their analysis is wrong”.  And he was like “ok, Ted, I’ll take your word for it”.  Pretty cool.

Anyway, I’m exhausted.  Feel free to blog in the comments section.  Maybe DarthTraya will get back to War & Peace-ing it instead of being snarky today.  ;-)  Brian, feel free to dump in a few words about how you’ve been feeling lately – I haven’t heard from you in a while.  Scott, good suggestions last week in the readers-blog-in-the-comments vis-á-vis (which means face-to-face, for those of you who aren’t privy to those fancy french phrases) the whole who-are-you-and-what-are-you-about doo-dad.  Maybe we’ll even hear from Didi today.  And all you randoms from Twitter, now’s your chance to grab those fifteen minutes of fame.

So yeah, if you’re reading this, it’s the end of my words – click on the comments link above and see what the other readers have to say.  If there’s nothing there, congrats, you get to be the first and everybody after you will read your comment and probably use it as a jump-off for their comments.  So please, try to say something fun.

Peace out, nuckas.  I’m for bed.

I just got to work its two in the morning I have nothing to say so I found this little blurb on the net a few minutes ago and thought I’d share.

English contains more words than any other other language on the planet and will add its millionth word early Wednesday, according to the Global Language Monitor, a Web site that uses a math formula to estimate how often words are created. The site estimates the millionth word will be added Wednesday at 5:22 a.m. Its live ticker counted 999,985 English words as of early Tuesday evening

We could do Fun Fact Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a fact…What do you notice about the following sentance? The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.


Darth Traya June 10, 2009 at 10:18

That sentence we had to type over and over in typing class in high school. Yes, there was a class for working on a typewriter in high school. Also had to write term papers on a typewriter in college too. Hard to believe that was 20 years ago.

16 hour days will grind you down in a hurry. Mr. On Top of the World. I know I did plenty of those when I worked for the government a few years ago, and those tend to be the norm in police work. Remember to eat right, drink plenty of water and get some actual rest.

I’m really looking forward to joining the over 40 club… The above sentance has all letters of the alphabet in it. That’s a pretty fun fact don’t you think? Here is another fact…Teds work is really effin up my morning ritual of reading his blog. Nobody wants to read about what I have to say. Katie how are you doing today?


Katie June 10, 2009 at 11:17

Brian- That sentance contains every letter in the alphabet…


Katie June 10, 2009 at 11:18

Oops, I guess i should refresh my browser more often, because you already answered the question…


Scott June 10, 2009 at 11:35

I was way over thinking the fox dog sentence I got a headache.


Scott June 10, 2009 at 11:40

Did you know NJ has an association of real vampires lol I did not till it was brought to my attention last night. Well now you know.

My fourtune cookie today says “all thing has a cause. Look into your pass for answer” only sounds good if you do it in a Mr.Miyagi voice


BRIAN June 10, 2009 at 12:17

Scott did you look into your pants for answer?


Scott June 10, 2009 at 12:25

Why you intrested?


BRIAN June 10, 2009 at 13:08

So where is the rest of Quixes regular readers at today? Got nothing to say?


Katie June 10, 2009 at 15:45

You guys are so funny! I don’t think anyone wants to join in on this conversation…

Rhode Island is neither a road nor and island… Discuss…

Random Fact: Rhode Island is the smallest state in the US with the longest name. Actual name: Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.


Scott June 10, 2009 at 18:13

The name Rhode Island derives from the colonial-era name for what is now known as Aquidneck Island, which now comprises the city of Newport and the towns of Middletown and Portsmouth, the largest of several islands in Narragansett Bay
