Dear Bergen County Drivers,

Yes, I know the big flashing lights are scary, especially when there are a lot of ambulances. However, a road accident on the OTHER SIDE of a divided highway separated with a JERSEY BARRIER from you does not justify a SEVEN MILE GAWKER BACKUP.

No Love,
Me

Dear Miss B.'s Fourth Grade Teacher,

If you insist on writing a precis of the Social Studies reading assignment and having the students copy it and study it BEFORE reading the reading assignment, please make it MATCH what the reading assignment says. We have a hard enough time keeping the peace between you and Miss B. without having to explain to her that she needs to give you back on the test the information you wrote even though it doesn't match the reading material.

P.S. 'Ancestor'-- you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Irritably,
ME

Dear System Administrator,

If you mean "the patch runs as a shutdown script" but you actually *write* "the vulnerability runs as a shutdown script" don't even think of treating me like an idiot for not understanding what you meant. Bugger off and take your attitude with you.

Out of patience,
Me

Token?

Hm... for those who have seen it, do you consider "Unshelved" http://www.unshelved.com/ a niche-only comic?

If I were to tell you that I practice an "Officer Obie" style of documentation, would you know I meant...

[Unknown site tag]"twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us. Took pictures of the approach, the getaway, the northwest corner the southwest corner and that's not to mention the aerial photography."

As in this: http://www.lehigh.edu/%7Ewww/make_www/ssh_ftp_web.html

(And yes, 3 years after I left, Lehigh still has pages linked on the help pages that I wrote. Most of them have not been changed. There's one for using Mozilla Composer. Another for Dreamweaver 2004. 'Nuff said.)

I should not be allowed to see this. I am already having deep dark plans for the return of my boss from her sabbatical. :)

Something I quoted in my "Beyond the Herb-Wife" presentation, about the certain witchcraft-related beliefs, from the MALLEUS MALEFICARUM

And what, then, is to be thought of those witches who in this way sometimes collect male organs in great numbers, as many as twenty or thirty members together, and put them in a bird's nest, or shut them up in a box, where they move themselves like living members, and eat oats and corn, as has been seen by many and is a matter of common report? It is to be said that it is all done by devil's work and illusion, for the senses of those who see them are deluded in the way we have said. For a certain man tells that, when he had lost his member, he approached a known witch to ask her to restore it to him. She told the afflicted man to climb a certain tree, and that he might take which he liked out of the nest in which there were several members. And when he tried to take a big one, the witch said: You must not take that one; adding, because it belongs to a parish priest.

Today the drive in to work was total chaos. I was late, and we have now reached the point where there are 6 different work zones in my 45 mile commute, and even after 9:00 am there are points where it takes 10-20 minutes to go 2 miles because the road is at capacity. I have become somewhat used to NJ traffic but after the 3rd car IN A ROW cut me off, I was out of patience.

That 3rd car-- had a "Smile God Loves You" bumper sticker on it.

To prove that I am evil, I rolled down my window and shouted, "Would Jesus drive like that?" (No, I don't have Intermittent Rage Disorder. I'm just an irritable bitch.)
