Conversations With Stuff: More Willpower

I and my family are trying to go low carb. I have been told the first week is the hardest. It is Day 3. The internal battle is tiring:

Instinct: BREAD!

Willpower: Have a salad.

Instinct: WITH BREAD!

Willpower: Shut-up, instinct, we’re doing this and we’re doing it right.

Instinct: …This is actually good!

Willpower: See, it’s not so bad–

Instinct: But I’m still hungry! BREAD TIME!

Willpower: maybe you can have yogurt later!

Instinct: I WANTS BREAD!

Willpower: For the last time—

Instinct: THIS BREAD TASTES AWFUL!

Willpower: That’s your hand.

Instinct: Oh…

Willpower: Which oddly enough would be a no carb meal…

Instinct: SEE?! NO CARBS KILL!

Willpower: Eat the damn salad!

Whitless Letters to: Smash Brothers

Normally I would have a huge blog post to accompany this. But…well, the video pretty much speaks for itself this time around. I don’t like Smash Brothers. I don’t mind if people DO like it :D. I just don’t get it.

My Neighbour Errol: Farewell D&E

As many of you (or all of you) who read this know, my friend Errol has a geeky band called Debs and Errol…well…he HAD a geeky band called Debs and Errol. Last night after a month long hiatus, Errol showed me his farewell comic. As of this morning, D&E is no more. Read the rest of this entry

Conversations with Stuff: Governments

Sigh…my day job can be arduous at times:

Government: Hey! We have a new system for invoicing!

Me: That’s great…but isn’t it us who designs our own invoices to send you—

Government: YOUR INVOICES CONFUSE US! DO IT OUR WAY!

Me: Okay…sure…what do I need to do!

Government: Fill out this form! And send us a timesheet!

Me: Seems easy enough. Here is the form. And the timesheet.

Government: WHERE’S YOUR APPROVAL E-MAIL?!

Me: You didn’t say anything about an approval e-mail…

Government: WE CAN’T LOOK AT IT WITHOUT AN APPROVAL E-MAIL! NO APPROVAL FOR YOU!

Me: Okay, fine! Here’s the approval e-mail.

Government: GAH! WHY ARE YOU SENDING EVERYTHING TO US SEPARATELY?!

Me: Because you keep asking for new things after I send the old ones!

Government: IT CONFUSES US SO! WAAAAAAAAAH!

Me: Sorry? Next time I…will send all the things at once? Now that I know?

Government: you had better.

Me: So when can we expect to get paid?

Government: Soon. With a 2% discount.

Me: Wait, what? You mean YOU get a 2% discount?

Government: yes, for paying early.

Me: Since when?

Government: Since we gave you new terms.

Me: wait, you’re our customer, don’t WE dictate the terms?

Government: WAAAAAAAH! NO APPROVAL FOR YOU!

Me: ….You guys are teenagers, aren’t you? You have to be to be this entitled.
