Yesterday they had a 'memorial' for John Lennon, arranged by Yoko and held
in Strawberry fields, in Central Park.

All fine and well...John was a nice guy and all.

When they showed the crowd...singing "Hey Jude"...a Paul McCartney
song!!!!!

Actually, playing that song was probably Yoko's idea. She pissed Paul off
recently by saying his songs were sappy. She was probably trying to
backpedal.

I don't care for the Beatles much as a band, but Lennon and McCartney were
the best pop songwriters ever.

Joan Rivers had a routine talking about why she has that name: "When her
parents first saw her, he said, 'YUCKO! OH NO!'

(May not be an exact quote)

Yeah I hear they're really strict about being late for your shift at
Chic-Fil-A.

Myself -- I have one of them there kinds of jobs where I'm off
weekends, I have tons of vacation, and I have a desk with a computer
where I can get online when I wish.

Well, alas, so did I. But since I am a Professional, I work Banker's hours.

Bet you get home earlier than I do.

I think the opinion that the Today Show is moronic is a non-partisan
one... I prefer to watch old man Imus during that time -- as I make
the oatmeal, tie the shoes, etc etc

Nah, I'm a "do-er", aren't many of us left, all the "Professionals" (aka
management) work banker's hours, we're the ones that do the work, and,
blissfully, get to work from home from time-to time. When I go to the
office , it's for about 11 hours. Us do-ers do the work. I'm a
Professional at what I do, and wouldn't be proud to say that I didn't
put in a full day's work, at the office or at home. I sometimes have
to stay late because the "Professionals" (aka management) have gotten
themselves in a mess. I help them fix it, then... gotta go, and I'm
working from home tomorrow ...ah, bliss.

This is the first day since I started working here mid-November that I have
actually had a chance to screw around here. Most of the time I'm just too
damn busy, but there are a lot of people out due to a bad storm. So it's
kind of a bonus day. But, the nature of my job does not allow me to work
from home...I have a support position. Besides, they pay me well to be here.
