Busy, Busy, Busy.
I’ve always been more of a solitary person who enjoys his personal space, but people keep tapping me on my shoulder every 5 minutes, and I feel like I’m gonna scream! Why do they always come to me? Why can’t they bother the other group leaders?
Things at work have been a little crazy, and this coming week is expected to go from crazy to bonkers when I’ll be the only group leader on my side of the factory. Thankfully, I’ll be taking a 4 day weekend after this, so maybe I’ll be able to regain some of my composure.
Even though all this work is driving me insane, I’m going to take all the overtime I can get right now, because I need to toss in a little extra to my savings for a rainy day fund. It’s nice paying cash for everything while watching your bank balance grow. I almost feel like an adult.
Of course I’m not stupid. It’s always easy come, easy go. The universe can sense when you’ve got your head above water and that’s when things tend to break down and need repairs, or you have to pay extra fees, or the the world decides it’s a nice time for the apocalypse. The rain never stops in my neighborhood.
Last week I forgot to put the kudos in at the end of my rant. Didn’t even notice it until Friday. It was darkmare and George who contributed the jokes. Thanks guys.
I’m not going to forget to give thanks this week. Thanks goes out to George, darkmare, and even “The Oldest Rater” who also contributed to this week’s daily jokes. With me being so busy of late, it’s a godsend to have so much help. Just a reminder, our submission page, is always accepting contributions, and if you’d prefer to send me jokes the old fashioned way, my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you all so much!
So you may have noticed the stars slowly fading away… Well now they’re gone. Good riddance. Bye bye. I was sick of looking at them.
Instead, you may now “like” or “dislike” to your heart’s content. Go ahead. You won’t hurt my feelings if you dislike a joke. You probably won’t hurt George’s feelings either, since he’s never actually seen this site.
Honestly, I’m not even really sure why anyone should bother liking or disliking things. It’s not like it will affect the quality of future jokes. It won’t tell you which jokes are the funniest either. As far as I can tell, it’s just something to play with when you get bored… reading jokes. (Oh god, that sounds depressing… Would you care for some Paxil?)
So there you go. I finally got around to hatching my evil scheme. It’s a simpler up/down vote system, just like you see on every other platform out there.
