Today's Mood Is...


Woke up with the "gotta vomit, please let me get to the bathroom in time" feeling, and had one of my patented "Puke so hard the capillaries in my face pop and I look like an extra in Outbreak" faces all day, to the point that work sent me home early (after the floor manager asked me if I needed an ambulance.

Of letting the moment happen instead of pointing to it and saying "LOOK HOW FUNNY THIS IS!!!!!!" It doesn't foist a laugh track on the viewers, which lets the audience decide what it wants to laugh at. And it is showing growth in the characters, which is completely unexpected in a sitcom.

Looks like it's time to...

Many companies have outsourced their call center business to overseas offices, and many of those are in Pakistan and India. The best way to make sure everyone in the office is aware of this is to do a highly racist and offensively stereotypical Pakistani or Indian accent (because they all sound alike to you) and to start saying that your name is Dan, how can you help us, and then saying that everyone knows your real name is Sanjeep (or some other name that you think sounds sufficiently Indian).
