There's A Kind Of Lumberghness All Over My World

"If you guys could come in early on Saturday and Sunday, that'd be great"

"If you could send me the utilization reports by 5PM, that'd be great"

It's official. I became this guy.


Can you even imagine the shame I felt when I realized I had ended not one but two sentences in the same day with "that'd be great". (And to cover up, I threw in a "Red Swingline stapler" joke before the minions started cracking up around me. I don't think it helped.)

I coulda been somebody, you know? Like The Dude. Or Sam Spade. Of all the memorable film characters available to me, I had to choose Bill Lumbergh.

So who wants to show up at work in a Hawaiian shirt and jeans?

and just so you know, i'm at work today wearing a t-shirt that says "if we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it? - albert einstein" and blaring 2/14/68 for the second time running.

To twist this dialogue from some film I saw the other day - It depends on how you view it. If you think you fell on your face, it'll sting for a long time but if it's your ass you think you fell on, you'll be back up soon enough. And, that'd be great :-)

Good evening Sir, my name is Steve. I come from a rough area. I used to be addicted to crack but now I am off it and trying to stay clean. That is why I am selling magazine subscriptions.

You guys are all just plain twisted.

Alok: Please don't say "at least you're a boss". That is a rather poor excuse to sound like Bill Lumbergh :D

//TR: the wife too? Tut tut.

Checkout this site for a Blade Runner whiskey glass. A little pricey, but available.
