Quote of the Day
Dubious|Laptop: Gotta go give a training session on Cisco. Later.
pdX}aldawg: Isn't Cisco a form of oil they sell at supermarkets?
Dubious|Laptop: That's Crisco. It's not often that you find someone who is both technology and culinary-impaired, but you have shattered that paradigm.
Thanks BASH ... edited for grammar & punctuation ...

Quote of the Day #2
On the twelfth day of Christmas,
My teenager gave to me,
Twelve hours of napping,
Eleven fights with sister,
Ten girls-a-calling,
Nine hours of Playstation,
Eight piles of laundry,
Seven CDs blaring,
Six late assignments,
Five mumbled words,
Four filthy plates,
Three slammed doors,
Two dirty looks,
And a math test marked with an "E."
Thanks to Cativa ... mine is only ~5 months, so I've got a year or 12 before I need to worry about this!
