Hey slackers pals. I just realized that my combined user names equal well over 1500 posts so I am a double secret probation SITH. I posted a self-congratulatory thread about it so if anyone would like to help feed my already enormous ego or just make me feel swell you can check it out.

Yippee.

Good morning slackers! Good to see some old faces reappearing.

Thank you for the Ally McBeal dartboard, Sabe. I'll throw cheeseburgers at it.

Darth Boss is moving down the hall! And Boss Mothma's moving in next to me in his place! Yippeeeeee!

Hello all!

Please forgive this intrusion into your amazing slacking ability, but I just have to say....BRAVO!!!

C Creepio: Very nice intro!

I might actually get to join the ranks of slackers. Actually, maybe I already have. After all, I am at work. But I will get to work out of the house soon.

BUWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

PC all are welcome here, even if you end up woring from home. If you post at JCN during any kind of school function or are getting paid while you do it... You are a slacker.

Welcome Padawanna Cracker, truly you are a closet slacker. You speak of the dream of all slackers, to get paid ot slack off from work in the luxury of your own home. To slack against the efforts of your boss when you are your own boss is truly slacking at its finest. We salute you.

See, working from home is the ultimate slacking.

1. Everyone thinks you're hard at work, because whenever they call you, they can hear typing in the background.

2. You're getting paid to sit around in your pjs all day eating cereal and watching movies.

3. You only do 2 hours of actual work in the office anyway. Why not live a little?

4. When you work at home, the company pays for your computer upgrades. (Think about it...)

Ow. I thought too hard. I'll be going now.

As long as you procrastinate in any way, shape, or form, you are considered, at least in this circle, a slacker.

Welcome to heaven.

The problem, Hacienda, is that one needs must have jedi-like power to hit so small a target area on an Ally McBeal Dart board. I mean, first you have to find her.

Welcome to the SLACKCLUB Padawanna Cracker. You're uniform will arrive whenever one of use feels like getting it. (most likely never since we're all to busy slacking, So I suggest you just use what you have) But you're slackSaber is due to arrive within the next 2 soconds. Try not to cut yourself.

SLACK ON!!

Welcome, PC!

Did anybody else want to smack Calista Flockhart at the Emmys? That outfit was just screaming out for a good b!tchslap.

Sorry...when you're slackin' you sometimes feel like smackin'.

[Hacienda lies face down in the snow, bleeding and frozen. Her nose is running too.]

HACIENDA: *gasp* *cough*

[Suddenly the ghost of dapper_bloke appears before her.]

DAPPER_GHOST: You will travel to the Internet...there you will learn from Creepio, the Slack Master who taught me.

HACIENDA: Dapper? *hack* *snort*

[DAPPER_GHOST fades away]

HACIENDA: Dapper! [Her head falls with a *thunk* into the snow.]

[Just then, gundark rides up on a Tauntaun.]

Iron....I think it's something you get when you eat red meat.


And yes, Callista Flockhart is WAY too thin. And she even lost weight.

But she doesn't have a problem. Oh no. It's the media's fault. (moron) And she's a terrible actress.


Well, it's about time to take that early, long lunch and dream of tomorrow - while getting paid, of course.

Guys!

There is now a person at work who speaks with a "fake-Chinese" accent every now and then.
Thanks to me.

Her favorite line: "Yes, of course."
She does it pretty well too. Now, if I can only get her to say "I don't sense anything" with her best English accent....

Fortunately, I don't work through lunch. Even better, I think I'll take a walk down to the cafeteria to see what books they're selling today, all in the name of "supporting the Employee Association" (read: slacking). Excellent!

Besides, it appears a database problem not caused by me has occurred. Soemthing that's not my fault but will keep others from doing their job! Ah, bringing the slack to others... damn I'm good!!

Not to keep bagging on Calista, but..

Did anybody see SNL last year where Drew Barrymore played Calista on Celebrity Jeopardy...and when she didn't write an answer for Final Jeopardy and "Alex" asked her why, she whispered, "the pen was too heavy"... LOL.

Because Taryn asked for it (and I need to boost the post count)...Creepio, you have inspired my slack yet again!

SCENE: The Forest Moon, nightfall. TARYN has slipped out onto the balcony. Her friend HACIENDA, concerned, follows.

(Aw heck, I forget how that scene starts. I'll just wing it.)

HACIENDA: Taryn, what's wrong?
TARYN: My boss is here, now...on this moon.
HACIENDA: How do you know?
TARYN: I sensed his presence.
HACIENDA: But why did he follow us...here?
TARYN: Beats me. [pause] You're throwing off my train of thought. Shut up. There's something I have to tell you.
HACIENDA: Sorry. What's up?
TARYN: First off, the boss is my father.
HACIENDA: Oh sh!t.
TARYN: There's more. It won't be easy for you to hear it, but you must. [Pause.] Do you remember your mother? Your REAL mother?
HACIENDA: I don't remember last week, Taryn.
TARYN: Ahhhh. [pause] I have no memory of my mother. I never knew her.
HACIENDA: Taryn, why the h*ll are you telling me this?
TARYN [upset]: Because I NEED to TALK about it! [Sighs.] Just shut up. I'm not finished.
HACIENDA: Fine. What are you trying to say?
TARYN: That if I don't come back, you're the last hope for the Slack.
HACIENDA: Taryn, you have a power I don't HAVE and could NEVER understand...
TARYN: You're wrong. You have that power too. [Gets Big Moment of Truth face on.] The Slack is strong in my family. My father has it...I have it...and...my SISTER has it...
[HACIENDA looks shocked]
Yes, Hacienda, it's you...
HACIENDA [sobbing]: I know...somehow, I've always known...
TARYN: Then you know why I must confront him...
HACIENDA: No! Taryn, run away. FAR, far away. If he can sense your presence then LEAVE this place...I wish I could go with you...
TARYN: No you don't. That would require effort, and you're a slacker.
[TARYN walks away. HACIENDA weeps. Enter OBI TWO.]
OBI TWO: Hey! What's going on?
HACIENDA: Nothing. I just want to slack on my own for a little while...
OBI TWO: C'mon, tell me.
HACIENDA: I...I...CAN'T tell you...
OBI TWO: Could you tell Taryn? Is that who you could tell?
HACIENDA: Since you're never on the chat anymore...

That was fantiastic! I always knew you two were sisters.

On a sad note, I just got an email from ym boss. This is part of it, cut and pasted for your reading pleasure.

quote:
On Wednesday, 9/29/99, we will conduct an exercise as if we lost our computers and / or electric power due to a disaster such as a hurricane, tornado, bomb OR.......the possibility of nothing working when we change dates to the Year 2000.

You know what that means? NO COMPUTER FOR TWO DAYS! THAT'S WHAT THAT MEANS!

This is madness!
