October 24 07

had you been in my building yesterday at, i don’t know, say, 4:00, you would have heard this announcement. only i wasn’t. in the building, that is. i was at my kids’ school, picking up carpool.

(well, picking up half my carpool…since the other half was sent home with lice. for the second time. are you scratching yet? my kids are lice-free, thank the good lord. because lice are only funny on south park )

anywho, i guess to understand why getting paged is actually hilarious, let me take you to about 3:00 yesterday afternoon.

hey, did you know you could order from here


i did not know this. so, as the weaker half of my department’s social committee – really, i’m not very good at it at all – my job was to get the pizza and the drinks.

so, i spent 20 minutes playing around on the website. amazing! you can order right there! and they’ll deliver it straight to your office! and it will remember your last order!

and then i hit the order button by accident.

so, i call customer service to get my order cancelled. since i want it tomorrow – not today. after being transfered THRICE -  once from a woman who said – yes, she really did – “let me transfer you to someone more capable”

it got cancelled and pushed off until tomorrow. yay.

but, that didn’t stop the pizza pizza delivery guy from showing up at my office, pizzas in hand, at 4pm yesterday. so, i spend another 45 minutes on the phone with customer service. again.

ordering online sure is FANTASTIC, isn’t it???

you know what else is fantastic??

when Marie Osmond collapses with the stars faints on stage.

oh, and you know what else?

when Halle Berry makes a fool out of herself.

apparently, this distorted photo is where she looks like her “Jewish cousin”. at least that’s what she told Jay Leno…and then apologized for it.

yeah, yeah, yeah. distorted? methinks it’s more like “pre nosejob”

new post up on Fabulous, where i talk about my latest obsession

i promise…there’s no talk of poo.

  1. Marie Osmond bugs the hell out of me – so I found that insanely funny. Seriously “sometimes when I stop breathing I pass out.”
    Yes, same with most humans!

  2. Sorry. I’m having a good laugh at the pizza thing. That is totally the type of thing that would happen to me.

    I once ordered pizza on the day our entire office moved for 30+ people, only to find it had been delivered to London. London Ontario. Yeah, needless to say, no amount of beer was making up for that mistake with the starving movers and employees!

  3. My favorite line was, “Sometimes I forget to breathe!” Maybe she should hire someone to follow her around and remind her.

  5. What is with Marie O. I mean I lead a busy life. That said, I haven’t found remembering to breath being a problem!?!

  7. I loved the Halle Berry thing. What a tool.

  8. post = TOO FUNNY! That is HILARIOUS that they sent the pizza at 4pm — when, like, everyone starts clearing out for the day, too! Hahahahahhah! Glad you weren’t there when pizza came. That would have been annoying to deal with.

    Marie fainting was classic — especially since she’s okay, of course. I love watching how uncomfortable the judges are! hee!

    The Halle Berry thing = so annoying. I don’t even find her that gorj anymore. Not sure what happened there.

  10. i feel bad for halle berry. you say those things and in your head they sound funny, or you don’t even think about it, and then BAM it’s out of your mouth and you realize it’s not funny, just offensive and then everyone forgets about how excited they were that you’re FINALLY pregnant and you’re just labeled racist.

  11. I simply don’t know what to comment on – there’s so much. I ordered online for the first time this weekend (Pizza Hut, though). And was so paranoid something would go wrong. It was fined though (besides me placing my order TWICE – good thing the computer warned me before I actually sent it in).

    And the Halle Berry thing is sort of disturbing. Is it just me or is she turning into a stereotypical Hollywood trainwreck?

  12. This post cracked me up. I love the “Loser” picture. *snort*

  13. The hilarious thing is- at the first mention of lice- and my head starts itching.

  14. Ordering online has its downfalls. I once ordered flowers to be delivered in a different town and missed that I had put the right address, but my own town name. Apparently the delivery person drove around for 2 hours looking for the address before finally calling. My town is NOT that big. Great story!

  15. That picture of Halle Berry is spooky – it looks like those photos people take of dead celebrities in their caskets. I can smell the formaldahyde.

  16. I work in an community (sort of like an inner city school), and we have a HUGE lice problem. Having been with Grade 2 and under for the past 4 years, we never seems to get rid of it. The great thing is that I have become an expert “checker”.I have been there 6 yrs. and have (thankfully) never got it. I have dry skin, so my head always itches, and one of my co-workers always checks me. It gives me the itches just thinking about it. ew ew ew.

    I have ordered clothes and flowers online. No problems yet.
