    Bearded Hipster Dude asked me what I thought of the new Daft Punk. I told him it is growing on me. He proceeded to tell me the album doesn't seem as exciting because he spent weeks with mixed up versions of the songs.

    It's a niche arts/sportswear wholesaler.

    OT, but I had this interesting conversation with my co-worker, who immigrated from Guatemala in 1978.
    ME: Hey, what do you think about this guy in Guatemala?
    HER: The sky in Guatemala.
    ME: No, this guy. The president or whatever he is was found guilty of mass murder and he's going to prison. His name is Mort or something like that.
    HER: Oh, Rios Montt. I know that guy.
    ME: Know him, know him.
    HER: Yeah, he was always around when I was a kid.

    Dude that is doing maintenance in our office this morning is quietly singing The Scorpian's "Wind of Change" to himself.

    Yeah, they fired him a week ago. The only downside is that the bar across the street is going to be selling about 10 fewer half pound burgers per week.

    The other guy in the OP got pissed off because work made him late for band practice so he called in sick for a few days, then stopped showing up. Another guy at work is in his band, so we know he's not dead, and they have their first gig coming up soon!

    i've always had a photo like this of willie taped to the window in my office.


    a couple of months ago a coworker in another department stopped by and decided to tape this one up underneath it.

    I was just sitting there working and was not given an opportunity to offer my opinion.

    he stopped by 30 minutes ago to remind me that slash is playing at the Naperville Ribfest this weekend.

    Coworker in her 50s asked me what to do with "records", "Beatles, Monkees, Carpenters, stuff like that".  So I just said, "give it all to me for a hundred bucks". That's fair, right?

    I'm sure she'll feel like the winner in the deal. Go for it.
