Work happens

Sorry, I have been completely underwater today. Got in later than usual (amongst the mere mortals who arrive at 9:30am) as I had to play Mr. Mom this morning. Since then, it's been heads down on some stuff that needs to be done by COB today.

On the good side, my TPS reports are almost done and I got a cool red stapler. I'll be leaving as soon as that strange acting guy sets fire to the place.

: Seems that I struck a nerve with old Peter Gibbons, Lumberg, Milton. If you want to end your Friday laughing, check out the "Office Space" quotes.

I have unfortunately been compared to that strange-acting man, but not for the fire part. I once asked where the paychecks were, and my nickname was born.

I would like a piece of cake.

Don't be a pig, keep passing.

I DO have a red stapler, but I bathe regularly and don't talk to myself (much).

(for the red Swingline, go to, they also have it as part of an 'Office Space' kit, which is somewhat sad and pathetic in its own way)

This 'working for a living' thing just sucks, by the way.

I'll never get the Lumberg "sex scene" from my head when I think of that movie. It's troubling really.

Samir: No one in this country can ever pronounce my name right. It's not that hard: Samir Na-gheen-an-a-jar. Nagheenanajar.
Michael Bolton: Yeah, well at least your name isn't Michael Bolton.
Samir: You know there's nothing wrong with that name.
Michael Bolton: There was nothing wrong with it... until I was about 12 years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys.
Samir: Hmm... well why don't you just go by Mike instead of Michael?
Michael Bolton: No way. Why should I change? He's the one who sucks.

Milton Waddams: [talking on the phone] And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire...

Nina: Now Milton, don't be greedy, let's pass it along and make sure everyone gets a piece.
Milton Waddams: Yeah, but last time I didn't receive a piece. And I was told...
Nina: Just pass.
[while the cake passes Milton mutters - eventually everybody but Milton gets a piece]
Milton Waddams: [muttering] I could set the building on fire.
