Thursday lunchtime randomosity

Dear Lawyer: That's nice. Now please answer the question I actually asked.

Dear Client: That's nice. I knew how it worked. Now please send me the policy documentation proving that's how it works. Judges tend not to be impressed by "because we say so."

Dear Plague-Ridden Coworkers: Much sympathy. But from over here in my little office, because I have a voice recital this Saturday.

Dear Jericho fans: Congratulations! I grin like an idiot every time I read someone's post about the reprieve. And I don't even watch the show. (Nor will I, no matter how good it is. Sorry. But I'm still happy for you!) We all know we're the product and not the consumer in the commercial TV equation. It's always fun to see that knowledge worked successfully.

Dear Office of Doom smokers: The trees are still singing. It is still wicked cool. You are still funny. I'm curious which of these will wear thin first, but right now they're all very entertaining.

This is every. God. Damned. Day. Here.

I feel your pain.

Well, not quite "unheard of." Or does Forever Knight cancel itself out, because fans won the campaign for a second season and lost the campaign for a fourth?

I think we may still have the NBC renewal promo for Quantum Leap on tape somewhere. The one with the guy ranting at the desk, saying "Well, we just have one thing to say to you, Quantum Leap fans!" :: avalance of mail drops on his head from above :: "You win."

It's still rare enough for the phrase to apply, though. :-)

I find myself saying almost exactly that to the eight-year-old a lot. Mind you, without the 'Dear Lawyer' part.

*chuckle* Well, I do sometimes refer to that part of my job as "babysitting the lawyers."
