Real-life work email:

From: Darren Holloway
To: All Employees – Mountain View
Subject: Found: Bowling Ball.

I found a bowling ball. If it’s yours, you can claim it by (a) coming to my cube, and (b) presenting a plausible explanation as to how it is possible to lose a bowling ball.

Nothing says “romance” like a new motherboard…

As usual, Fry’s Electronics has a couple of full-page spreads in today’s San Jose Mercury News newspaper.

In keeping with the time of year, the ads are titled “Valentine’s gift ideas.” The ads show big-screen TVs, digital cameras, washing machines, and motherboards…

Yes, motherboards. Because nothing says “romance” like a new motherboard.

If this isn’t enough of a problem, they’re not even good motherboards! Visualize with me for a second…

A couple is sitting together on a love seat. The lights are low, candles are burning, and romantic music is playing.

He: Happy valentine’s day, dear! I got you a present.

She: (Unwraps present) It’s a…. motherboard…

She: What, was the flower store out of roses? And it’s not even a good motherboard! Just look at that shoddy chipset! You couldn’t even get me something with a 1333 frontside bus?

Will I ever be that good?

I’ve started getting back into dancing; going out several nights a week. Unfortunately, since I haven’t been dancing in a long time, I kinda suck.

But not the good kind of suck, like Donny Osmond in this music video :)
