Intl Organization of CHIMPS

There's a Big Winter Storm raging right now. So what did my esteemed employer do? They sent an email at 8:00 (when I had already left the house) that the offices would be closed today. Then at 8:20, they sent a second email saying, ignore the first message, the offices are open.

When I finally got to the office (at 9:30!) people were leaving the building. There had been an intercom announcement that only essential staff had to stay, and anyone who wanted to go home was allowed to do so.

I'm still here because !!fudge!! it took me an hour and 20 minutes to get in, I'm not turning around and going home right away. I'll leave around noon to head home to my beloved snow shovel.

P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the bigger of the little anonymi.

Why can't they send me home???...It's not like I've done anything since I've come in anyway.

He turns 11 today - meaning Power Rangers and Backyardigans have been supplanted by American Apparel and Axe cologne.

Yeesh!

Wait a sec. I met Mr. Anonymous Senior when he was, what, 14-ish? And he didn't smell like cologne.
What gives? Have times changed?

I think I met Mr. Mushrooms senior when he was 27-ish and I don't remember him smelling like cologne either.

All I can say is I was a country boy - there wasn't a lot of cologne to be had. It's not like I lived in Valleyfield or something.

Otherwise, I'da been swimming in it.

I don't remember Levonz wearing cologne either, and he was Levonz.

Did anyone wear cologne at CVR? I remember Dicky Riel's entire living room was decorated with car-shaped bottles of Avon aftershave, but I don't remember if he or anyone else wore it. At Concordia, Brian J. Busby wore something like Infinity for Men. Anon and I, nope. Wait, I sometimes bought $1.99 blue stuff in a plastic bottle. A beautiful blue... wait, children, come back... I'm your grandfather, goddamn it! Don't make me tell you about our first VCR!

I love when a post about my incompetent employers turns into a comment thread about men's cologne.
We digress...

Hitler: My dog has no nose.
Mob: How does he smell?
Hitler: Terrible.

Winter storms are so much more bearable since I started parking diagonally on my street.
