#5 Frank Lloyd Wrong | Oct 18th Score:47

Using my ability to whistle like a bird through my teeth and some air ducts, for an hour I had my entire company convinced a bird flew in through my office window and was now stuck somewhere in the office.

I have zero job satisfaction.

You have to recap it because your write-ups are completely awesome. Don’t be a dick.

Eric Shorey | Oct 17th Score:62

I’m probably going to end up saying this A MILLION times today but i think its frustrating that everyone is focusing on the BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN comment and not on the substance of Romney’s response which was essentially: “I THINK WE CAN GET WOMEN TO BE EQUAL TO MEN BY LETTING THEM GO HOME FROM WORK EARLY AND COOK AND CLEAN.”

shellshocked | 1:37pm Score:4

so my husbands first girlfriend came to our halloween party dressed as a tea bag. What kind of woman comes to a party dressed in nothing but a giant, see-through tea bag with some wood shavings inside so it would look like T? His second girlfriend came dressed as kitty kat in nothing for a black leotard, a tail and some perky ears. We are not longer married, and I don’t go to costume parties any more. But in retrospect the tea bag was a lot classier

catweazle | Oct 18th Score:24

My day has been a little crazytown! Shakeups have been happening at my job over the last few months and there was a pretty big one today. But more importantly, I have been calling everything “crazytown” lately and my coworker asked if it was because of the rap/rock group Crazy Town, which led to me looking at their Wikipedia page, and I had totally forgotten that their singer went by the name Shifty Shellshock.

Also, I wore a cute pair of boots today but gave myself blisters walking to the train in the morning. I really need to go grocery shopping, but my feet will not survive so I guess I’ll be having the “Catweazle Special” for dinner: ramen with a glass of wine.

Posted in: How Was Everyone’s Day Today?

[Ed. Note: This comment is a stand-in (no offense catweazle) for the entire "How Was Everyone's Day Today?" thread. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy reading about how people's days actually went. Wait, yes I can. I like it very much! It's so charming and kind and a great way to learn more about people. I think we should keep doing it for the time being, until it stops being those things. Do you agree?]

  4. Congratulations on your upcoming weddings, truckasaurus and explainer guy!

  5. If anyone is going to New Order in Chicago on Sunday, I will be the one wearing the shiniest thing I could find at Forever21, possibly sparkly shorts.

  6. Listen, after three plus years of commenting , I still get a thrill when I get into the Ball. I really do appreciate it. Thank you all.

  7. Wow, what a tough week guys. It seems like everything has gone wrong in ridiculous ways. I can’t wait for this weekend so I just just stay inside, make some popcorn and watch Moonrise Kingdom in peace

  8. I’m set for an awesome weekend of work at home, and also I’m going to a two-year-old’s birthday party later today.

  9. I think the how was your day post is a fantastic idea, but we need a third option other than thumbs up or down: we need a Hug option. A lot of sad stories out there! Maybe it could look like this: {{{ }}} or <3

  10. Second time in the ball and one step closer to my EGOT! Wait, what are the actual qualifications for an EGOT? 1 Nobel Piece Prize, One Tony, One Pulitzer, and something else, right?

    Today is my first day off in 2 weeks! I’m going to make Gruyere cheese and apple pies ALL DAY!
