This is against everything I stand for!!

I typically dont like to hop on the "Lets get to know each other better" bandwagon. In fact, I enjoy a certain amount of anonymity. I started this whole blog in a half-hearted effort in improve my communication skills and to indulge in a little creative writing, neither of which I am very good at. So, when I get the emails that ask such prying questions like..."What is your favorite color?", I typically just file them in the same folder with the email that is warning me that little Sarah So-and-so is gonna die unless I forward this email to 20 friends. Not a huge fan.

That being said, I feel a twinge of guilt when I just mean...file stuff away. Somewhere in the back of my mind I feel as if I am ignoring the person who sent it. The little Thony angel pops up on my shoulder, poutingly hangs his head a bit, like he just lost a balloon, and whispers to me..."but Jesus said to love everyone, even if their emails do have an exorbitant amount of kittens in them!"...stupid Thony angel....FINE, I'll do it...but I won't like it. In fact, its safe to say that I'll hate it, and the only reason I comply is to appease the sender...and Thony angel!!

*mumbles--stupid Mormon guilt!!

I have the same file. Unfortunatly, it gets overflowing, so I have to empty it so more can fit in. Now,to save time, I just delete them.

So sorry I put the little Thony angel on your shoulder, but I have to say, the results were worth it! As for the creative writing aspect, I don't see that you have a problem with any of that. You make me laugh everytime I log in and see that you've added something new! Are you expecting to be the male version of Erma Bombeck? Maybe we could get together and write the next best seller...I provide the stupid e-mail and you provide the wit and sarcasm. You gotta love you! (I do.)

Good to find your blog!!! I've jumped on the bandwagon too. It seems to be turning into more of a journal than my actual journal.

PLEASE tell me that you put M&M's in your rice crispy treats. If you don't, then I am pretty sure that we shouldn't be related.

Posted at 9:55 A.M.???? Aren't you at work at...? HEY!!!! Oh I see! Technically, since you are at work and getting paid for it, you are a professional blogger too. Don't worry. your secret is safe with me. I fell asleep at my desk the other day. I had the open mouth and the string of drool dabbling off my bottom lip. Woke myself up when I snorted. I am a professional napper.
I don't think you mentioned what the devil said when he appeared on your shoulder "Delete that email and let's go eat a pan of rice crispies and play guitar hero!" Then the angel apparates and says "But... you're gonna your guitar all sticky again!" The devil growls and you shriek out in pain as he jabs his pitch fork into your shoulder "Shut it Angel Thony! Don't make me march over this big old useless lump of goo Thony calls a head and make me kick your..." "Oh bring it on you red faced, pointy goateed imbecile!" the Thony Angel retorts "Both of you stop it!" you shout. I am trying to blog!" Thony devil mumbles "Sorry Kip, I didn't realize you were chatting online with babes!" Meanwhile out in the hall your supervisor has a worried look on his face as he discusses you with his boss. "I don't know what concerns me more, the fact that he talks to himself or that he has done nothing but play space invaders all week." Your supervisor's boss puts his hand on your supervisor's should as the stroll down the hall. and says "Don't worry... Thony's supervisor, Thony serves more as a comedic relief in our otherwise insanely boring and technical workplace. That's the way we like it here. As a matter of fact, I was about to punch you in the face and call you poopoo head because my project just had a major set back. but when I saw Thony stand up in his chair and play air guitar to that crappy Journey song "The final countdown" Everything seemed better at that point! And so I've decided to give you and your department all raises!" your supervisor smiles and says "Except for Thony right?" "Oh of course not! I wouldn't even mention it to him."
