Why? Do we look into the almond milk carton and it's Skyrim?
  1. I posted TWO memes! It's not like I blizzarded the same forum with a hundred memes a la Gas and his GoT thing.
  2. I have a joke about almost milk and how it's made. A bunch of people sitting around looking for almond titties? You can call it what you want, but it sure it's milk. Instead of "juice", though, I say "squeezin's".

I just figured you were on a roll with the Skyrim memes. We did say it was the new Rickroll. And I wouldn't put it past the internet to have invented it already.

Sorry for posting game of thrones memes in the game of thrones thread.
No, no. What I was saying was that she castigated me for posting TWO things as opposed to your multiple. I'm not saying not to post stuff. Totally cool. Just wonder why I had the target on my back. (Bummer of a birth mark, Hal.)
 
My job solution epiphany:

Stop trying, stop caring. The owner has made it clear none of this is his problem, so why should I keep making it mine? My manager is overburdened, but keeps brushing me off with help--you win! You're right, I'm wrong. :) I'm just going to do like everyone else in the department, "yes" her to death and then keep doing what I was doing. I'll be the most pleasant damn person here, which is my preference, but I've been too concerned about the state of the office to be myself that way. Well, no more. Nothing's stopping me now. Maybe I'll even stop taking initiative when I see things wrong, but I'm not sure yet. Baby steps, you know. :cool:

"You'll never see a happier nut than a freshly-milked nut."

No, Far Side Deer @Dave , I was teasing you for your last two joke posts being "made you look!" Skyrim memes, so when you said, "wait, I have something for this!", it was my first thought.
EDIT: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, welcome to Halforum.

Now, if we turned this into ratlactose intolerance, then we could talk about milking a joke. :rimshot:

"If you don't like your job, you don't strike! You just go in every day, and do it really half assed. That's the American way."
Oh, you guys might be too hardcore for me. I just meant I'd stop fighting management to make this place better and stop trying to get my department coworkers to carry the other halves of their asses.

Though Julie says I've said all this before and backpedaled on it after a couple days ...

Spent the last few days on the road. Went from Texas to St Joseph Missouri, stayed a couple of days, and came back home through Kansas to OKC though Dallas and then home tonight. About 1400 miles of driving

Our daughter moved to Missouri last year on July 5, during the middle of chemo treatments for my wife, and this was the first we’ve been able to see her and her husband at their new home.

Was a good trip, visited the Pony Express and Patee House museums in St Joseph.

Painted buffalo in PX museum


Original well in the PX stables


Patee House was the offices and pickup for the eastern end of the Pony Express routes. This is our son-in-law, my wife, and our daughter in the “saloon” of the Patee House.


They also had a replica mail train on display, trains would bring the mail to St Joseph and if there were any express pieces they would leave with the next PX rider.


We also went down to Kansas City while we were up there and visited the Steamboat Arabia museum. This is a museum about a side-wheel steamboat that sunk in the Missouri River with pretty much its entire cargo intact.



Also drove by Arrowhead and Kauffman stadiums.


Coming home we spent the night in Oklahoma City and visited the Oklahoma bombing memorial at dusk.



Also stopped and visited the home of USA softball in OKC and ate at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar restaurant.


Saw lots of windmills, hope I don’t get the windmill cancer.


Oh, I also turned 50 yesterday, drove almost 500 miles for it. I’m going to bed now.
 
Dang @Sparhawk . OKC is my old stompin' grounds. I could have given you some better options than Toby Keith's place. Happy birthday!
Fun fact (not really fun) my dad did rope rescue and confined space rescue at the Murrah Building and took photos for the FBI.
It was just a thrown together last minute trip. We had fun, and just enjoyed going and being together.

Nothing like getting sick 2 days after donating blood, so you get to call the Red Cross and tell them they can throw it all away (ok, it's probably used for testing and research instead of patient care, but still). Ugh.

Also, I'm sick, and I want warmth and hugs and snuggles and a big blanket and a good tea and a whole bunch of medication. Blegh.

Joshua, son of Joseph: "Yare yare daze."
Yeshua is a commonly used alternative to Joshua (Yehoshua) during the Second Temple period (516 BCE to 70 CE). He was a Palestinian Jew, after all. So the Hebrew Yeshua ben Yusef becomes the Greek Iesous, son of Ioseph, becomes the Latin Jesus, son of Joseph.

Yeshua and Joshua are used interchangeably in the Hebrew Bible - post Exilic works particularly. Ezra, Nehemiah, and Chronicles prefer Yeshua, but Haggai and Zechariah prefer Joshua.
