God, I hate those little kids SO MUCH. I throw stuff at the screen when they come running in. I don't care if little Boba Fett and little Greedo are among them. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

The slack runs strong in my family... My father, Darth Tater, has it, I have, my sister, Arsinoe, has it...

Hello fellow slackers...
I am deeply sorry about my absense from this thread. I promise you I will support the slacker cause more often in the future. But I must break something to you friends... I'm NOT slacking. Yesterday I spent 4 hours typing and expect to type for 8 hours today. Why? My screenplay. I am running behind on my screenplay, due to recent events that have happened, (My brother left for college on Tuesday and that was hard on me because I was very close to him. He's going to the University Of Hawaii.) But don't worry... the screenplay WILL be released on the selected date . It's just that for now I can't slack . Thank you for your kind words and I'll post another commercial either later today or tomorrow. Thank you, and goodbye.

~Jedi Soul

P.S.~THX 1204... I have you on my list as well as Lady Brix and SenatorBinks 2.

P.P.S.~Amidala's Suitor, Arsinoe, and C Creepio... I will respond to your emails on Saturday.

Have a nice day !

No, I work at SGI. The company is sort of going down hill though.... But we still do Star Wars special effects!

I've just gone out and purchased a frying pan and have engaged in a heated contest of balf with my co-workers.

Because, I like slacking. Every one here is too busy talking about what's going to happen to the company, rather than working. Plus It's sort of slow for me now. I start my computer off doing something, and then I have nothing to do for a couple hours while it runs. Plus, this forum rules!

The Slack will be with us. Always.

See? It's the spirits of Slacker Anakin, Slacker Obi-Wan and Slacker Yoda saying goodbye to Slacker Luke.

ok. so does anyone have a boss that uses cheesy nicknames for people like, CHIEF, or CAPTIAN, or BIG GUY, or anything else so banal...

Chief really gets on my nerves if someone i don't know calls me that.

If i'm ever a boss ( which is not likely considering how i slack ) i'm going to call random employees names like Biff, or Toughy , or Shecky, or Shemp just for the hell of it

gundark, my current boss doesn't do that, but my old boss did. I agree, it is really annoying. I was going start calling him dumb-a$$, but I don't think that would have gone over too well...

Pick-a-boo!!

Hello Fellow Slackers

Sorry for not doing my part in slacking recently. The moving took a little more getting used to then I expected. Im still trying to settle in.

Well Im at work/school project site. (So that means I don't get paid. ) but the people are nice here and I've found 1 star wars fan. Well he reads the EU's that's got to count for something.

I'm in a lab now, not a cubicle. I share it with 6 sometimes 7 other people. All below the age of 35. So that's pretty cool.

Another reason for my long absence was becuase I had no internet access till just this afternoon. After lunch. It didn't take me long to find this thread and bookmark it. I miss you guys.

By the looks of things it's been a slow day. I'll see what I can do to help. So who wants to help me out.

Man this place is colder then my last job!!!! it's like 40 degrees in here. And I already have a cold because of it!! This sucks!!


IM BACK!! YIPEEEEE

I get Big Guy a lot. I think it is kind of appropriate seeing as I am 6'2 and 220, but annoying. I've always used "Cheif" in a way that if I call you that, it means that I'm about to be really pissed off at you. Example: The last time I used Cheif was when I was out to eat with some friends and the service was awful-
Waiter: "Can I get you anything else?"
Me: (glaring at waiter) No, we've been waiting and still are waiting for our check, CHEIF."
I don't know how this type of usage was started, but that's the way my dad has always used cheif, as well as a lot of other guys I know, and I just picked up on it.

Hi Gundark, Hi Tater, Hi Suitor. I've missed all of you too.

Man it's too cold to even breath in here.

No one really calls me anything. But they almost always comment about my height. Im fairly tall. (Like I didn't notice).
I usually get to you play basketball and stuff like that.
