The Peeing Mantis – Unmasked!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on April 27, 2011 by butterflyliz32

Sort of.

Thanks to those that have continued to hit this site.  I have been on other blogging adventures.  But do not worry.  I will be back to this blog shortly.

My mother is an awesome artist, and I asked her to take my vision of The Peeing Mantis and bring her to life.  Man, did she ever pull through!  This is what TPM looks like in my brain:

I hope it was worth the wait.

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:  www.adivorcestory.wordpress.com

Happy Holidays from the 4th floor!

Send Me Some Love!

Hey there Loyal Readers and Newbies alike!!

I promise that I have not forgotten this blog.  Far from it, in fact.  I am working on a few things and am really looking forward to the future!  Don’t worry… I am still the same snarky former Company employee… there are plenty of good times to come.

I appreciate everyone still hitting my site, even though my posting has been lagging.  I get hits mostly from people still wanting a definition to “Inculcate” or Running with the Bulls [shrugs]. I will do a full review of awesome (and bizarre) search engine terms shortly.

In the meantime, I would love for all you lurkers (and very vocal commenters) to come out from hiding and let me know which Hell Blog story has been your favorite!  Enquiring minds want to know!

Batting 2,000

Yay!!!  The HellBlog broke 2,000 hits today!!  This is a great milestone since it’s conception back in August 2008.

Thanks to my loyal readers and the random masses who find themselves here on the quest for better grammar and the need to use inculcate in a sentence.

I have been somewhat on hiatus from writings about The Company as I focused on some personal issues, but plan to get back to it really soon.

Thanks again for reading!

Oooook…. Inculcate? Really?

What is the number one search engine term bringing people to the HellBlog?  It USED to be The Peeing Mantis.

Now?

“Use inculcate in a sentence” [enter]

Really?  Seriously??  I have had over 40 searchers hit my blog since I posted this post back in October.  I am appalled saddened curious about this.  I mean are there really that many people who are searching for this term?  I had never even heard of it before some wise guy at The Company pulled a thesaurus out of his ass and decided to show everyone one the worst possible word to put into a motivational strategic plan since “downsizing”.

I just had to comment on this since it comes up several times a week.

One other that made me laugh:  “Use apparently in a sentence”.  Ok.  Apparently, you are a moronHow’s that?

 

Post Script– Recently, one of my named characters has attempted to add me as a friend on Facebook.  I have not accepted yet, as I do not wish to hurt her feelings, were she to stumble upon this blog, which I am pimping pretty heavily via Facebook right now… not to mention I would like to avoid anyone at The Company learning about this until the book is in the jacket, so to speak.  So… thoughts – Do I change her name in the blog… OR do I pretend I never saw the friend request?  Comments appreciated, as always!!

My Cubicle

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 25, 2008 by butterflyliz32

My cubicle at my current (and let’s face it… EVERY) job is a disaster.  I don’t really mind working in a cube, although I LONG for a door some days.  The biggest problem I have comes from external sources.  Namely the cackling bitches down the hall who apparently have nothing better to do than talk loudly and cackle incessantly all day long.  Bitter?  Maybe.  At least I have a cube with a view… of the freeway 🙂

Here is a little song that really sums it all up (Click the link below).  I hope you enjoy.

The Office Dullard

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on August 23, 2008 by butterflyliz32

The office dullard is a clever foe…  According to Strong Bad (www.homestarrunner.com), this is a person to be outwitted and avoided at all costs.  At The Company, we had just such a fellow.  Chuck had been with The Company for over 35 years and, let’s face it, really didn’t have a job.  He just showed up and wandered around the office annoying people, and collected a check.  He also had a Company-issued vehicle and spent most of his days “running errands.”  Chuck was also one of those guys who wore his jeans WAAAAAY too tight, if you get my drift.  Put them away, buddy! 

Chuck was the manager of the print shop and supply room, but was never in either place.  You would see him bothering the Administrative Assistants, telling corny jokes, or talking inappropriately about his sex life – with people who were not his wife.

Taking our cues from Strong Bad – because, honestly who doesn’t take their cues from a cartoon in a Mexican wrestler mask and boxing gloves – we learned several interesting techniques for dealing with The Office Dullard.  If you are looking for effective techniques, I suggest you get the full experience by watching the master at work (http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail37.html)

Mmmm…. Multi-tasking….
