Today we had some solicitor call the office–trying to solicit advertising for a newspaper (we’d never heard of).
Alas, the solicitor sounded almost identical to “Peggy” the representative in the Discover Card commercials…
Of course my coworker had to put the call on speaker…and we couldn’t help but laugh

There is a suggestive photo with the article…but this is still too silly
Ohio Cops Arrest Topless Woman After 128 MPH Police Chase
The weird part is that this took place on Rte 422–a route I’ve taken countless times. Too weird….
No…the name wasn’t my doing…rather it’s something I came across while browsing today. There’s now apparently a “Kosher Tea Party”
Apparently a group like the RJC wasn’t sufficient?
Though I doubt whichever Republican runs in 2012 will garner more than 25% of the Jewish vote.
So apparently there was an East Coast Earthquake today.
It was odd.-at the office (on the ground floor)–no one felt anything. Nor did anyone know that an earthquake had taken place, had people not started calling/texting us that something took place.
Perhaps that’s for the better?

Really? And it’s not that the Indians were swept!

Conversation on the phone yesterday:
Mystery patient: “Yes, I left a message for a refill on my pain medication”
Me: “Ma’am, we don’t prescribe pain medications at this office. We’re a [niche specialty] only”
Patient: “Well I left a message for a refill and I want my pain medication”
Me: “Ma’am, as I said before, we don’t prescribe such drugs at our office.
Patient: Repeats herself
Me: “Can I have your name and date of birth”
Me: “Ma’am, you’ve never been to our office nor are you a patient here”
Mystery pain lady: “Oh where are you located”
Me: Gives address
Woman: “oops, wrong office” *click*

Three cheers for irrelevant historical factoids!
It’s a story from the UK tabloid “The Sun” so take it with a few grains of salt…
Pills â€˜for fattening chickenâ€™
THOUSANDS of British women are so desperate for a bigger bottom they are risking their lives by taking pills designed to fatten up chickens.
The poultry tablets are packed with hormones that have been linked to breast cancer and liver problems in humans.
Putting my guess on xenoestrogens if anything.
So the Work Building has been on an interrupted gas supply throughout the weekend due to Con-Ed repairing some outside lines.
What this meant was there was little to no heat in the building all weekend leading up to today.
When I got to the office after the gym, I went to check the thermostats. One of them was way below the normal temperature set-point. The other had the air-conditioning system activated.
Yes, over the weekend, someone turned on the AC!?!?!?!
Slowly but surely though, we started to hear the banging on the building pipes, indicating the flow of heat. Alas, speaking with the building super, we also found out that a lot of the pipes were frozen too.
My hope fur Tuesday–that the office has some heat.
From the department of really stupid things that I don’t believe in to begin with:

Um…okay. I definitely won’t be losing any sleep over this one.

Just wait until the Israelis perfect mounted laser beams on sharks!
Sadly though, there’s going to be a significant portion of the Egyptian populace that buys this story. Sad…

Question–why is the City spending this kind of money (in it’s financially strapped state) on this kind of campaign?
