Indeed you did!

Seriously, Rick Astley rickrolled the Macy's parade last year. He obviously knew about the phenomenon and attempted to capitalize on it.

Default Solid Potato Salad - The Ross Sisters (1944)

Whoa is right, I wonder if Shawn Johnson could do this?

Solid Potato Salad? No, it's not what you get when you leave the deli container out of the fridge too long. It's a 1940s term for...something (I have no idea what. ) In this classic footage from the movie "Broadway Rhythm" (1944), the Ross sisters, Aggie, Maggie and Elmira, sing and move in ways that don't look humanly possible. Yoga anyone? Movie buffs will recognize the tune as one of the background instrumentals from "The Godfather."

Had an interesting day.

Went up to visit brother. Everything seems normal, right? Well, my back driver's side tire blew out. I didn't panic. I thought, "Ok, so this must be the front passenger rim" since the front passenger rim is bent and it could go anytime. Instead, it's the back driver's side tire. So I think, "No problem, I'll just dig out the spare and put it on". Took me a while to get the spare out and I still couldn't get it on, dang lug nuts.

In what freaked me out to the nth degree, my boss happens to be on the interstate and he pulls over to help me put on the spare tire. I didn't see this coming and it changed my opinion of him as being a rude, controlling *******. Not only did he help me change the tire, but he drove behind me in case something else happened to my car on the way to my parents.

Lucked out that dad had a spare tire that would fit my car so had the rim swapped out and put into that tire for $15. Hit the road afterwards.

It's amazing how people turn out to be better than you thought they were. I feel that today happened for a reason. The timing of my boss just happening to be on the interstate at the same time freaks me out. I'm glad though and thankful that there are folks out there who will help me out, even if I don't get a good impression of them at first.

Perhaps it shows when you travel in a new innerstate, people who you saw as tiring and overinflated...... show up and reveal a new side of themselves when you were tired and deflated and can spare you the time and effort to see you down the road again.... backing you up. Amazing synchronicity on your new innerstate

Default Re: _AVALON LOUNGE_ Open 24 hours

Some years ago I read an article where it was suggested that each of us has at least three levels or degrees of interaction with those around us.

1) There are the topics that we will discuss with immediate family and a few really close friends.
2) There are topics we will discuss with those we work with or come into contact with on a regular basis.
3) Topics that we will discuss with complete strangers.

In each of the above cases we also have levels of intimacy. The interesting thing was that we would be more likely to discuss intimate details with a stranger rather than with workmates or family and friends.

Bosses can have pressures that employees are unaware of and these can in some cases alienate or preclude friendliness in the workplace. Away from the workplace, all these barriers are dropped and the bosses become "human."

I recall a salesman who worked for the same company that I did. He was a really pleasant though fussy sort of a bloke. He eventually became the branch manager. Some time (about six months after his promotion) he had a problem with his telephone and asked me to have a look at it to see what the problem was.

This was in the early 70s long before mobile or cell phones. Turns out that he kept it in his drawer to muffle the sound of its ringing. He also had a whole pile of paperclips loose in the drawer and they had got into the gubbinses of the phone and produced a rattling distortion as they interacted with the magnets.

Anyway, after I'd cleaned them out he asked me to stay and have a coffee with him. He called the office girl and ordered two coffees then began to tell me how lonely he felt since his promotion.

Now that he was the manager all the other salesmen seemed to avoid him and he pointed out that the only thing that had changed was his job description. He asked me to pop into his office from time to time and have a chat as he felt alone and rejected.

I was both pleased and embarrassed at the same time. For the next few years until I left the company, I'd pop into his office from time to time and have a chat over coffee.

I heard that he eventually became the general manager for the country and many is the time I've wondered since if he ever again had someone to chat with over a coffee from time to time.

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her
altitude and spotted a man in a trout stream fly fishing below. She
shouted to him, 'Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would
meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am.'

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, 'You're in a hot air
balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet
above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and
100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.'

She rolled her eyes and said, 'You must be a Republican.'

'I am,' replied the fisherman. 'How did you know?'

'Well,' answered the balloonist, 'everything you told me is technically
correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm
still lost.

Frankly, you've not been much help to me.'

The man smiled and responded, 'You must be a Democrat.'

'I am,' replied the balloonist. 'How did you know?'

'Well,' said the fly fisherman, 'you don't know where you are or where
you are going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of
hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you
expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you
were in before we met, but, somehow, now it's my fault.
