I was always a little disturbed at how easily Bo and Luke Duke could obtain dynamite. They always seemed to have a few sticks whenever they needed it. How much did they have? Don't you have to have some sort of permit for that? Perhaps Uncle Jessie had traded in his moonshine-running days to sell explosives on the black market. I just always thought that was a little odd. Other than that, I found the show extremely entertaining and realistic.
RANDOM EDIT: My sister called me last night. She said, "You remember when you used to have that message on your answering machine where you were singing?" (I still do, but that's beside the point.) I said, "Yes." She said, "I have just now realized after all these years that you got that from Seinfeld. I just got done watching that episode." Funny. And I thought everyone knew that.
Life as a germophobe
Lately, I have become somewhat of a germophobe. Everyday when I get in the studio, one of the first things I do is wipe down the phone, mouse, mousepad, keyboard, all major knobs and switches, all pens and legal pads, and sometimes even the doorknobs, with a Clorox disinfectant wipe. Depending on the stink factor, I also sometimes spray down the room with Lysol. Then I'll go to the bathroom and wash my hands before eating my morning snack. I don't know what has gotten into me. Perhaps this comes from having worked with a Big Sweaty.
What is a Big Sweaty? Well, I'm glad you asked. I got this idea from OC Girl's Onion post. I hope she doesn't mind me doing my own version.
Characteristics of Big Sweaties
- They have the AC set to subarctic levels almost year round.
- Regardless of temperature or season, they tend to sweat profusely.
- Often seem out of breath after walking a short distance or up or down stairs.
- Seem to prefer defiling the employee restroom rather than going at home.
- Due to excessive perspiration, they often emit a malodorous scent.
- Said scent lingers long after Big Sweaty has waddled away.
So does anyone else have germophobic tendencies, or work with a Big Sweaty?
You had to be there...
"ETA on her messaging me?"
"Uhh... Well, I can't find the sideways 8 on character map."
"I heard your Thriller song today."
"ZYP Metro 80's lunch."
"Whatever. It's all the same."
"Not really, but this is likely going in my blog."
(singing) "Duh-duh, duh-duh, dude looks like a lady."
"So do you ever hear from Clay?"
"How could I tell her no? Her measurements was thirty-six, twenty-five, thirty-fo. I like the way you brush your hair. And I like those stylish clothes you wear..."
