Bow to the conference room table!

My friend works at a business with a corporate culture that has no compare. Here's an email that went out about the care of feeding of a new conference room table, and a few replies from the guys who work there. Original Message #1: The new conference room table has been delivered. Please take care of it... put your hot cups on something that acts as a coaster, wipe up spills and condensation promptly, avoid indentations by writing on a pad of paper vs. a single sheet etc. Reply #1: Please bow when entering the room and remove your shoes. Always put on the plastic gloves prior to sitting at the table. Do not speak loudly, as it may interfere with the wood stain. Join hands and sing coom bah yah followed by we are not worthy to the table. Reply #2: The room will be kept at a fixed 55.4 degrees Fahrenheit in order that no condensation will collect on the great and powerful Table. Please bring offerings of wood polish and tree bark when seeking an audience with the Table. Reply #3: Let it be known throughout the Land that only those deemed Worthy shalt sit in the presence of the Table. Ye shalt be deemed Table Sitworthy if ye abide by the following decree: I) Thou shalt cleanse thyself thrice upon entry into the Table's sacred Chamber: Once by the wearing of the glove, so as to prevent the dirty oils of the hand from burning and soiling the Great Table's shining countenance Once by the wearing of the mask, so as to prevent the unclean breath from spilling its noxious fumes into the air that sustaineth the Table Once by seeking the forgiveness of the Table's Keeper for thinking impure thoughts whilst in the presence of the Table, so as to purge these impure thoughts before they stain the Table's very soul II ) Thou shalt have attended a university befitting the Table. (If thou dost be so foolhardy as to believe this includes any desecration of learning that be not Harvard nor Dartmouth, thou shalt be flogged thrice a fortnight whilst standing naked before the Table) III ) Thou shalt uphold the Prime Directive (known by the commoners as Rule #1) with great vigour in all matters pertaining to the Table IV ) Thou shalt in all things show thy gratitude for what the Table hath bestowed upon thee by kneeling then genuflecting no less than thrice before approaching the Table V-XXIV) As for decrees V though XXIV, thou pretty much gettest the idea- mess not with yon Table, or yea verily yon Table shall mess with thee.

Sports heros should stay out of politics.

Sorry Curt, but stick to pitching. Please.

It's true. Damn curse!

When in SF...

frontdoor While in San Francisco this week, I discovered The Connecticut Yankee, an amazing New England focused sports bar. Thanks to Fritz and the gang for making me and the other 200 people in there wearing Sox gear. Also, nothing could have made me feel more at home than getting off a plane and two hours later be watching the end of the Pats game and then watching Game 2 of the World Series in all its splendor. :-)

Weird fact in case you missed it.

The Celtics won their first championship against St. Louis (1957)... The Bruins broke a 41-year Stanley Cup drought against St. Louis (1970)... and the Patriots won their first Super Bowl against St. Louis (2002). Hey, I'm just saying.

Red Sox: Just Do It

The latest Nike Just Do It advertisement is awesome. I saw it after the Red Sox won game 7 of the ALCS. Enjoy it. (Oh, and some awesome wallpaper as well.)

Gizmodo is showing a new Zen Micro MP3 Player from Creative.

Creative has unveiled a new 5GB portable music player, the Zen Micro, with a vertically-oriented touchpad and a removable, rechargeable battery. In addition, you'll be able to pick up the Zen Micro this holiday season in one of ten colors. No word yet how much to expect this one for, but it surely won't be any more expensive than the iPod mini (and hopefully more like $200). Check it out on Gizmodo.

Cheney Blunder Lauded Anti-Bush Web Site! WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites) probably did not intend to direct millions of television viewers to a Web site calling for President Bush (news - web sites)'s defeat but that's what a slip of the domain achieved. Anyone who heeded Cheney's advice and clicked on "factcheck.com" was greeted on Wednesday morning with a message from anti-Bush billionaire investor George Soros entitled "Why we must not reelect President Bush."
