The [Prefix]est first blog ever! Or Deja vu

I am taking the blog plunge into "new blog waters...I may go running back to myspace, we'll just have to see.



This little blog is starting because I wanted a place to put the funniest thing I see each day (or as many days as possible). Nothing revolutionary or preachy or intellectual, just letting you lovelies know what things humans do in this wonderful world that put a smile on my face.

Basically- people are amazing and hilarious; they make, say, do and buy unreal things everyday- but you knew that! Maybe you will be willing to share some of the humanity you witness too! I have modified my platform idea to be not just "the funniest thing I saw today" but the "[fill in the prefix]est thing I saw today".

It could be the "nerdiest" or the "lamest" or the "smelliest" (I'll figure out the scent function in this blogger.com system later), you get the point.

Do you think I can get away with that?


I am cheating and reposting my little blog from myspace since I have not quite decided on the [fill in the prefix]est thing I saw today.

So, here is the funniest thing I saw yesterday:
I am sitting at my desk minding my own when I hear this gruff voice behind me say: "Does this person work with you?"

I turn and this guy walks into my cube and asks if I will sign for a package. He is wearing wearing a dirty Twins hat and a UMN vest of some sort. He is quite short and very bearded- in that homeless/ironic hipster unkempt beard kind of way.

He also had no less than 25 pens attached to the drooping collar of his tee-shirt!

The actual pen section of each pen was INSIDE the shirt and the little clip thingies were outside the shirt. The pens were in a variety of colors.

He hands me the package, grabs a pen from his chest and says:


And then I held the pen as lightly as possible and signed his form. Then he left my office.
I couldn't help but wonder what had happened in his life that made him want to keep all those pens so close to his heart. Maybe I did not wait tables long enough to understand?

Oh, this made me donkey-chortle when you said that his pens were INSIDE the shirt, clips outside.

I'm excited for your new blogaventure!
