Woooooah! And I do apologize…

Hey people!  I can’t believe the number of hits I am getting on a daily basis, and I have been REALLY behind in updating!  I think I started this blog about 15 months ago, and I am closing in on 6,000 hits!!  Dang!  Thank you for stopping by… adding it to your RSS feed… sending me out in your company newsletter… etc.

I will be picking this up again after the holidays, and will hopefully have a few characters to put up on the character page!  Sorry I have been so slow to update!  Real life and the world’s easiest divorce got in the way.

In the meantime, I will tell you that even though someone has FINALLY put up a note in the “Ladies” room (and YES the quotation marks are sarcastic) regarding “respectful bathroom behavior”, the Peeing Mantis is still on the loose.  Hey Santa… if you want, I will be glad to reveal her identity so that you can fill her stocking with lumps of coal… or perhaps some toilet paper and seat protectors… or perhaps a new brain entirely.  Ooooh… maybe she needs Hooked on Phonics to see that note was meant for HER.  You are not on my gift list this year, PM.  Oh no.  You are on a completely different list.  Oh yes.  You are.
One more thing – I have noticed that I have been placed in many a blogroll, and I thank you very much!  I will be adding to my blogroll soon, so if you would like your blog linked through mine, please send me a little comment love with the name of your site and I will be happy to post!  We all have to stick together in this great big blogosphere!

For more fun, festive Holiday readings, check out my sister blog:

Happy Holidays from the 4th floor!


Search Engine Terms – Bringing ya back for more

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2008 by butterflyliz32

It is time once again to look at the search engine terms that have brought people to my blog.  I am still getting the ones from last time, but a few new ones need to be acknowledged!  I really enjoy reading these terms and giggling at the things people type into the Google search bar in the privacy of their homes…

“I think he might be gay” [enter]  haha (that one is just for you, friend who shall remain nameless)

“the boss of me” grammar – I, too, have an issue with this phrase’s grammatical structure, but as it was probably invented by a 3-year old, I think we should cut them some slack.  If, however, you are a grown up and uttering this phrase to the person who signs your paycheck… you are an idiot.  Take it to a blog, like the rest of us!  😉

You don’t have to be a brain to be boss – Oh how true.  In some offices, you don’t even have to HAVE a brain to be the boss.  But, I digress.  We have all worked for a stupid boss at some point…  Someone that you just look at and think, “How in the hell can I work for someone with the IQ of a Muppet??”  But just remember… they are just smart enough to be your boss…

People on the fourth floor– OK… someone searching for this freaks me out a little.  Like that really bad movie “People Under the Stairs” or whatever it was that scared the crap out of me as a youngster.  People on the fourth floor aren’t so bad.  It is really more the ridiculous situations we kept finding ourselves in that are the problem.

Mary face appears on floor– Ok.. how the HELL did this link up to my blog??  Yikes.  I don’t want that face on my floor.  Unless it is in the form of grilled cheese.  Mmmmm… grilled cheese… [mouth watering Homer-style]

Cubicle Prairie Doggin – This one comes up about once a week, so I just thought I would acknowledge it.  I have covered it in the past, both in a post and in a previous search engine post.

+”Pearls before swine” + “Hostile Takeover”– I [heart] the Pearls Before Swine comic strip.  It is my current favorite, and I read it daily.  Stephen Pastis, if you are reading this (or if you wrote it… come on… fess up!!)… you are welcome to do a PBS strip of my Cubes hostile takeover.  I vote for Rat to win the takeover (who else??).  I could very easily see Zebra or Goat with the Breakroom Breakdown, so that is up for interpretation.  Call me!  hehe

“what happens at lucky on the 4th floor”– I can hardly bring myself to read this, let alone say it out loud.  Seriously… you grammar is atrocious. 

Inappropriate use of big words – I don’t know if I have blogged about this yet (I think I have talked about the misuse of big words), but this is a major pet peeve of mine.  I can’t stand it when people are using big words at inappropriate times to make themselves look smart.  Look, brain child… if no one knows what you are talking about, you don’t look smart.  You have zero influence, and chances are people will just think you are a tool.  If you don’t know what a word means, don’t use it.  You will probably just use it wrong, and rather than people THINKING you are an idiot – they will KNOW you are an idiot.  And a tool.

That’s it for this time!!  Check back in later for more tales from the Fourth Floor!
