Phantom Phones

Last night I woke up twice, each time convinced that I'd just heard the phone ring once. The first time it was the landline that I thought I heard, the second time it was my mobile. Then I fell asleep again, and this time dreamed that I had made this LiveJournal post.

Carrot, egg, or bean?

This missive came in all seriousness from our uber-Boss in the States. I felt I should share its, er, inspiring and motivational message with a wider audience. Watch out for the carrot.

[I've posted this to uk.misc as well, apologies to people who see it twice as a result.]

Carrotty goodness

Am I the only person who thought that the two phrases "The carrot went in hard and unrelenting" and "do you go in rigid like the carrot, only to be made soft and meek in the end?" were funny enough to justify posting that managerial drivel in its entirety?

He is clearly wrong about the coffee, though. Any fule kno that "a coffee boiled is a coffee spoiled". And I doubt you'd make a "steamy aromatic brew" out of one bean.
