I've Been Away

As I alluded to in my previous post, I was out last week in some meetings. I was totally gone Thursday and Friday (on assignment, as I like to say), and I avoided computer contact most of the weekend. What did this blogging semi-hiatus make me realize? I read way too many blogs.

Total number of non-spam, work related e-mails in my inbox Monday morning: 7

Total number of blog posts unread, according to Google Reader: 100+

How many is 100+ exactly? I don't really know, but I know that I deleted 20 Overheard in the Office posts and it didn't drop below 100+.

Either I read way too much crap other people have to write, or you other bloggers write way too damn much. So, today I am catching up on reading blogs, responding to comments and posting. After, you know, I read those seven e-mails and check my one voice mail.

On a side note: I passed a car this weekend with a bumper sticker pimping Texas Christian University - The Horned Frogs. The Horned Frog is also known as the Horny Toad. Which led me to the divine revelation that is the TCU Horny Toad's Football Team's new slogan:

"TCU Horny Toads - we have just enough pent-up energy to KICK YOUR ASS!"

Get it? They are both horny AND Christian. Get it? These ideas are gold people.

No. But thanks for playing.

Dear dmbmeg - don't be so jealous.

dmbmeg said...

I don't get jealous of those inferior to me.

Garrett Reid said...

Are you saying you have a better slogan for TCU's football team? I don't think so.

dmbmeg said...

"TCU football sucks balls."


TK said...

God, would you two just nail each other and be done with it?

dmbmeg said...

TK! Behave!

(I'm trying. He deflects my advances--mostly due to his unrequited love for a Lover and a Fighter)

I got it. (eventually)

Winter said...

Hey I was in Fort Worth the other day.

Stop stalking me.

how come everyone's in texas all the time. our panhandle's better. but that's about all.

Garrett Reid said...

DmbMeg: TCU sucks balls? Really? That is what you've got. P.S. You can't give TCU the slogan that already belongs to you. Zing.

TK: She is kind of obsessed with me isn't she. She told me it was only because you rejected her though.

DmbMeg 2d: Lover and Who? She doesn't comment like she used to. I guess when I posted about me needing naked pictures e-mailed to me you missed that clue as to the way to my heart?

EternalVirgin: Thank you for getting it - even it if it did take a while.

Constant Winter: was that you outside my bedroom window?

Blythe: People obviously don't know enough about the Mont to get them to Norman.
